My A/C compressor quit on my 6 cyl Eclipse, I found a used compressor for like 80 bucks but it came out of a 4cyl Eclipse. I HAVE SEARCHED, I do not see anything particularly answering this question.

They are not the same. GT/GTS compressors have a speed sensor on them that the ECU looks at and compares to engine rpm to know if the belts are slipping or not. You must find a 6 cylinder compressor.

Thank you, I guess I have to buy one for the 6 cyl, damn.

If you go online or buy from an auto parts store make sure that the clutch is included because some places will try to sell them separate. You might as well get a new expansion valve while you're at it.

I highly recommend a professional install. Once the repairs are done the system need's to be put into a vacuum for a certain amount of time.
