    Thanks for welcome guys. I picked up a 04 Eclipse as a daily for dirt cheap. Well, with dirt cheap comes minor issues that need to be addressed. I immediately decided to upgrade the rotors and pads on the car and I wanted to go with something a little more "performance" oriented because...

    Anyone have experience with remanufactured brembos from parts stores? I'm currently looking into some second hand Evo brembos from Japan which are around $600 but these remanufactured ones seem like a deal since they're already rebuilt and stripped from paint. A set of remanufactured calipers...

    Simply put I am pretty new to both the world of cars and the forums dedicated to them. I got my 2001 GT eclipse about a 2 months ago, and after some initial buyers remorse due to some rash thinking, have begun to love my car more and more. I joined up because I am hoping to find knowledge here...

The lights kind of go on and off, seemingly at random, and usually go off when I slow down/stop the car. Other than the lights, everything seemed...

    I'm having two big issues. I have an '01 GS 4 cylinder. When I leave it overnight and crank it in the morning, it revs at about 2500 - 3000 for 2-3 minutes until it warms up. Then it comes down to about 1000 and idles that way. And I'm off for commute to work. But that's not all. I have to...

    This is my first post as I have been creeping around this forum for about 2 weeks now. I just got my 01' spyder gs about 4 weeks ago and I am looking to upgrade the rotors+calipers (front and back) along with a nice intake (no eBay stuff). I am looking for something used to stay within my...

    I have researched the following 2 issues in the garage, got the mitsu manual and know the procedures to fix them. That said I still have questions: 1. I was told by someone not to use a clamp to compress calipers when changing brake pads cause it will damage ABS system - is this true? 2...
