Default 00 SSEi VS Late 90s Eclipse GS-T

Coming back from Intense this morning after upgrading Kendra'* car I pulled up next to an Eclipse GS-T at a light. He eased out past the white line almost a car length whle waiting for the green...I spotted him the distance. Light turned green I eased into the throttle, feelng the power of the new 3.4 pulley and was instantly beside him. He sped up and I matched him.... Next thing I know I hear him drop to second and floor it squaking the tires a bit so I mashed it and pretty much walked away from him while he madly climbed the gears...to bad it was only a 45 zone i backed off at 70 and he turned off without ever pulling even...ah well No idea what was in the eclipse but I thought I heard the whine of a turbo...could be wrong though...hard to hear over my own SC whine

Nice one Rogue. Teach those Eclipses a lesson. I can't wait till I get an SSEi so I can get a smaller pulley. That will be my first mod. Damn it'* going to be fun.

How was the install on the pulley? Pretty quick n' easy? When you get a pulley for 8-Ball just go with a 2.2" and then you'll never drive hers again.

Ok, my eclipse knowledge will come into play here. GS-T has a 2.0L engine with turbo, FWD. GSX is the same engine with AWD.
