At the moment, I own a Mitsubishi Eclipse... first of all, I dislike rice. My Eclipse has remained the same since I bought it. Everything is stock. I wanted to do a couple of things with it, but nothing like you see on most Talon'*, Honda'*, or whatever.
I think the most extreme thing I would have ever done to my Eclipse would have been to get a set of nicer rims than the steel it'* on now. Also, due to the fact it'* 15 years old, both back speakers blew out, so I was going to do some audio upgrading, actually, I was also thinking of dropping in power steering and a 2.0L or 2.0L turbo (a real turbo), just to give it a little kick, but unfortunately I never got around to doing any of that, although I'd like to get some new rear speakers, cause just having front speakers, is incredibly lousy.
I would never put on giant rims and "run-flat" tires though, or add in pathetically large exhaust with mufflers that make it sound like a fruit juicer on acid. If you can't put in a real turbo, don't pretend, cause if you have nothing to show, no proof... then you're just "posing", which is just ... terrible. I dislike most 4-pop engines, I'm a fan of traditional American muscle, I love the sound of a proper 8 cylinder (or 6 as the case may be), so in the case of my Eclipse, I don't want to make it louder, I want it to be as conservative as possible, because everyone knows what it is already, a 4-pop toaster on wheels, why bother putting on all the "make-up" to exaggerate what you have!?
PS: If you're out for a laugh, that'* all fine and dandy.
