Why not go turbo? Only get the head milled if it needs it. (Or atleast thats what I would do)
I have always had turbo eclipses 3 of them actually and just wanted to have a all motor project for a change I have been reading alot and if I can get this car in the low 14's high 13's all motor that would be nice especially with a dseries.Why not go turbo? Only get the head milled if it needs it. (Or atleast thats what I would do)
thanx for all the good info:TU:the reason I didn;t mention the stage 3 is no headwork. If you do headwork, yes consider the 3. I wish I went straight to it instead of the 2, but I'll fix that soon enough (even though the 2 is very good)
You'll probably have to clay the motor with the 3 and those pistons. I'm not sure if a stg 3 would clear my pm6's.
I have to tell you though, .040 is one of the best things I did. (unshrouds those vtec valves, and makes good tq)
A blockgaurd doesn't seem very necessary either. ARP hardware should be enough. I dont have experience, but rods with ARP hardware is probably good for 8000, maybe 8500. That what I will attempt when i have the cam for it along with itb's and tuning.
Header choice depends on budget. SMSP or Bisimoto are worth it if you can afford them, but DC 4-1 will make the most amount of power in the cheaper range. (its what Im running right now)
