  1. Fuel Injector Compatibility

    3G Eclipse General Discussion
    Hello, I was going to switch the fuel injectors in my 2003 GS and before I started saw that I had injectors for the 3.0L V6. Can I use the fuel injectors for the 3.0L V6 engine in my 2.4 L 4cyl or will this cause any problems?
  2. Which Should I do?

    3G Eclipse RS/GS Specific
    Should I do a manual transmission swap or do a 4gjs swap? I only have time to do one right now. Right now my car is stock with only an exhaust upgrade. Any thoughts?
