well say the gsx had a turbo, along with some other minor mods like exhaust, intake, and and maybe a chip. Then there is the ssei with the stock supercharger, then the same mods, like exhaust, intake, and a chip. Well basically who would win if both cars were stock. And is it possible to take a stock ssei and put it up against a gsx turbo and either win or stay close on him? Or would the gsx w/ turbo blow away the ssei?

Eclipse with a B16g turbo would run about a high 12 very low 13 so I would have to say the GSX...

Also, the eclipse can run about 20lbs boost on premium and 22lbs on race gas (if the turbo was also upgraded, and obviously a boost controller), what kind of outputs are you getting with the SSEi'* eaton?

Plus I'm willing to bet that the bonneville has a lot more weight than the GSX so... take all of this into consideration and what do you get. The GSX is hands down faster, there is no beating that..

well I am surprised I took that non turbo 2.0 even without a turbo the eclipses are quick cars, but my bonneville, like all other are just so damn powerful in the long run. Mine I guess is soo damn torquey, 210 ft pounds stock so it must be a little more now with modifications, so I am just glad I was able to kill one of those things, never the less it made my night.

For about a grand you can definently get those cars into low 13'*. I think in the new Import Tuner they did the Power Pafges on a GSX. For a lil less than a thousand they got over 100 horses to the wheels.
