1999 Mitsubishi Eclipse GST-x

Paul purchased his 1999 Eclipse GST in the fall of 2002. He was into ascetics at the time and showed the car a couple times at HIN. He eventually started building the car to perform around 2005. The car was AWD-swapped in 2008. And in 2009, Paul fabricated a compound turbo system using a B16G and old school 60-1 turbos that he had laying around the garage. It performed perfectly and was a great learning experience. Quick to spool and ran up to 47 psi. Ultimately, the car ended up being a beast of a street machine, reliably making 600WHP/550TQ and with a power curve like an old school big block. After many great years of fun, life happened and the car was dismantled in 2014.
