  1. Will ECU flash save me

    New Members Forum
    My daughter has a 2000 Eclipse GT Automatic. Recently the transmission started going out. By that I mean didn't want to change gears, mostly into first gear from a stop. I took a chance and picked up a 2003 GT with 102K on it. I thought it should be a straight forward change out. You can go...
  2. Changing Shift Knob On Automatic

    Show and Shine
    I absolutely hate the baseball shift knob on my 02 eclipse spyder gt, so I purchased a different shift knob with the pushdown button. I purchased this one- RS 1 Auto "Push Down" Shift Knob for Automatic Transmissions Shifter A T | eBay - and when I went to install it, I noticed that the shifter...
  3. Car won't start up.

    Problem Reports
    So I was driving to work up a hill and my car turned off. I tried adding gas but nothing. I crashed my car in the end of April but it ran fine afterwards. A couple days before it stopped, it made this weird knocking/clicking noise. When I would accelerate, the noise starts to speed up. The car...

  7. Turbo on an Automatic?

    GT/GTS
    I basically have 2 questions: 1) Can I turbo my automatic Mitsubishi GT, and is it even worth spending the $$$ for? 2) My dads friend said something about it not passing the smog inspection, and I was wondering if this can be confirmed or not? If anyone can answer this and help me out, mucho...
  8. How much will boost will sporty hold without high stall converter

    GT/GTS
    For right now I was wondering if I could hold off on the high stall torque converter and run at about 7.5 psi, if my auto transmission will hold. I do plan on having it tuned right after turbo installation. I'm not looking for a tremendous amount of horsepower right now. I do however have a...

  11. sds + sporty = slipping tranny?

    GT/GTS
    I've got the around 12-15 lbs of boost with the sds and my tranny is starting to give me problems. It's slipping between 2nd and 3rd gear on the auto tranny. I took it to the dealership to get the clutches changed and they said they changed them out. I don't think they did cause it still slips...
  12. now we are getting serious!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    GT/GTS
    well as we all know there is a huge line between street and track, well for a more track car ,which i have. I am now in the process of relocating the throttle body before the supercharger, which elimanates the use of a blow off valve and give you one hell of a kick when you hit it. this also...
  13. How much HP can stock sporty take?

    GT/GTS
    I just read on the RPW site that their stage 1 entry level kit is the only turbo kit offered for the sporty because the trans cannot take more power safely. My question is, What do u guys believe is the most HP we can safely run on the sporty trans? reason i'm asking is because I would like...
  14. Have a 2003 Spyder GT sporty. Can I do the Tearstone turbo?

    GT/GTS
    Ok...first off. I have a 2003 Spyder GT sporty with an invidia cat-back and AEM CAI. I already have my suspension setup (KYB-AGX, Pro-Kit, ST Rear Sway Bar, powerslot rotors, ceramic pads). I am possibly interested in the turbo that tearstone is now selling. I have some questions though...
  15. Sporttronic GT Tranny vs. Torque

    GT/GTS
    Does anyone know enough about this transmission to know how much torque you can throw at it before something goes awry in short order? The differential I can understand, it's everything else I'm a little worried about.
  16. Ripp's SDS Stage 2 and sporty transmission

    GT/GTS
    Hey guys, I have done all show mods and I'm ready to invest in big go mods. I have the greddy evo exhaust, the quaffi LSD, and RIPP headers. My question is, with a complete engine rebuild that can take me to a stage 2 SDS, and with new motor mounts, will my sporty trans hold up? Is anyone...
