Eclipses suck, but the engines aren't all that bad. I have a 1993 hyundai elantra and though it's my work car, I've smacked up many civics, nissans, toyotas and anything that wants to play. It has the same motor as the N/A eclipse, but in 1.8 trim. They have excellent torque and hell I've even gotten my P>O<S Elantra up to 140mph (Did I see it's a P<o>S). But I love the 4G motors and I do agree that something must have been mechanically or mentally wrong with that mitsubishi duo. Pretty soon, I'll be building my 1989 Hyundai Excel (4-dr) which I've already dumped more money into building that engine than I 've dumped creating my girlfriend's B12. Maybe a B14 could beat my 2184lb excel, but not an eclipse GS-T. My 30cents worth.......................
