Bought New Car

what up all, guess what i jsut bought. a clean *** 97 eclipse spyder GST, 5spd. woo its one badass ride. i know zimstangs gonna be jealous.

its color is like the dark mineral grey on mustangs. it has the 5 spoke stock rims, its convertable, all leather interior, 57,000 miles. i found this ebay auction http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...ayphotohosting
and the dealership is 1 and a half hours away, so i called the guy, and told hithere must be something wrong with it, he goes no come check it out. so i did. its perfect.the only thing wrong is the stock ground kit has scraping on it, and a little paint has chipped off. but its nothing a blitz body kit wouldnt fix. the convertable top doesnt leak, it was raining when we drove it. i put 1000 down, and payments are 220, and i also got a 5 year, 40,000 mile warranty for it. when i get home tomorrow ill make a new cardomain page and post some pics.

no i saw the car on ebay, and saw that it was 2 hours away. so i drove there and bought it. it had nothing to do with the ebay auction. but i won the auction too cause the guy wants it to end fair, so he lowered the reserve and ended it with me winning. that way theres no legal battle or crap. im usually not a fan of convertibles, but a gst 5spd with 57,000 miles for only 7500? im not gonna pass that up cause its a drop top. its still just as fast than a hardtop, and ill be having more fun come the summertime. lol then im gonna laugh at srt's as i smear them all over the road. ok maybe not stock but after intake and full exhaust, watch out musselsfrombrussels, youve got some competition. i still need to learn shifting better

First thing you need to do is buy the loudest BOV you can get.

gsts run what high to mid 15's stock? not too bad i suppose but u got some work to do with my high 13 sec monster. Ill be doing full exhaust as well. And gonna get a wastegate adjuster and the TurboX RFL (real ****in loud) BOV in 4 weeks. full exhaust prb wont be till next year around this time since turbo back is gonna cost me around 600 bucks but well worth the 20 HP it will put down i should c 13 flat all day long. I like the GST tho good buy.

wow you all made the same mistake i did. the title says a gs but i saw the pics and was like well ill call and see if its really a gst. and it is. also, just look at the engine, the regular gs engine block sits to the left of the bay, and the intake comes down to the right. the turbo the intake is on the left, and the engine is on the right. however they said the engine is also a 2.4, which it is not, its a 2.0, says so right on the valve cover. the 4g63 engine sucka. but i am gonna get a whole power package from modacar.com, theyre 1 hour away from me so ill go there prolly tuesday and see what they got. tomorrow im going to my bank to see about getting a better loan than the ones their bmw bank gave me(the car was at a bmw dealership) their bank would only give a 13.9 interest rate cause the car is a 97, but my bank will give me a 5% if its direct withdrawl on any approved loan. prolly less if i get my dad to cosign.

GSTs run 15.0s~ stock not high 15s. the vert probably slows him down though. just a couple ticks ahead of a stock 99 up manual v6 but alot more easy upgradable speed there. MITSU sucks... i owned one WORST pos i have ever owned, everything broke on it I hoope youdont have the same tranny./motor issues but you very well may they are well known for screw ups.

yeah ive heard all the stories about how mitsu suck and stuff. but i have a ford too, and those suck as well. i heard the most common problem is the crankwalk on the gst's. i guess the only way around it is to get a shortblock with a 6 bolt main. im not gonna up the boost till i install forged internals, and ill prolly see if i can get a shortblock assembly as well while im at it. this is all in the far future though, like 3 years away. i just needed something better cause im going to college and the tbird is in the shop more than i have it. stupid automatic trannies.
