95 Eclipse GST Build Up - 56k/Satellite warning

Here is my 95 GST. I got with a blown headgasket for 1,100. When I picked it up it had a VRSF FMIC, Tanabe Cat back, 16g, B&M Short through, Autometer Boost gauge, Autometer narrowband, and a few other odds and ends.

I got it shortly before I was deployed last year. Thankfully I made it home safely. Though my vacation on Uncle Sam's payroll was cut short due to an injury. I should heal fine however. I just came home at the end of decemeber and got the car back from my friend who was storing/cranking it up once in a while for me.

It sprang up a mysterious oil leak so its getting some work done now.

First day home:


First time I pulled engine :


Yes on a 2g you can stand in the engine bay once the radiator and intercooler piping is out.


Engine is out (Still feb 11)


You can see that the headgasket was leaking around both ends


Tried and true combination ARPs and a Fel-Pro


Engine back together. Didn't want to pop off flywheel. Won't fit my stand with it on.


Ebay Headlights, 2gb front that came with the car on.


Talon Rear and Hatch installed (Still Feb 11)




2gb talon front has seen better days. Will keep it for track use or something.


Wire tucked first time (Re did this recently while the engine was out)


LEDs in the Gaugecluster, switches, and HVAC controls.


Fuel Pump rewire / Battery relocation









Getting it hosed down of setting so long.


Throttle Rebuild


New Hatch lifts


1g CAS W/ Self made 1g in a 2g harness



New Wire tuck








New Gates T-Belt


Junkyard Scores


V3 DSM Link


It still has a long way to go but hopefully I can get some stuff done thanks to not having to many bills that I had to pay while I was gone. I've got a few months of rehabilitation so I can get some work done when I am up to it.

It's come along well so far. It would be totally awesome if you're able to get it back together enough to drive to the meet next month.

Well finally a bit of good news, the block doesn't need to be surfaced. Waiting to hear back about my head.

And I've got my block/head/oilpan/valve cover back. Basically all I had done was a good cleaning. They only charged me 10$ to boot. Worth it to know my head and block are flat and true.

I might contact Keith Watts racing to see what they would charge to assemble a long block for me.

Sweet! Always good to hear expensive parts are within spec.

Well I dropped off my engine at Kieth Watts racing since they said they could assemble my long block for a nice price.

I got around to knocking out some interior work. Just some simple wiring and putting some of my dash back together.



Still waiting on my LC-1 before I button the entire back up.

Then today I picked these up. Distributor block and some mini ANL fuses. These are going to be used to complete the battery relocation that was never quite finished by the previous owner. I just was not satisified with the way it was redneck rigged.


Did not like the neon orange color of the back plate for the Distributor block so I pulled it apart and sprayed with something a little bit more low key.

Some more parts arrived from Rockauto today. Front motor mount and passenger side door handle. Got them installed. So nice to finally have a functional passenger side door handle.

A door handle is always handy. Do you plan on using poly in the motor mount?

Yeah but the poly inserts for the front and rear motor mounts kind of suck. No one makes anything short a solid aluminum mount.

Here is an example of the "helper" inserts for front and rear mounts :


Where as the sides get full on replacements.

I want another 2g. I used window weld on my mounts. A little better than the store bought poly, but not a full on solid mount.

Yeah, I've got a set of these since the Galant mounts are identical to the DSMs and my mounts got torn quite a few times.

There are usually a few 2gs for sale on b-ham or huntsville craigslist these days. 1gs are getting harder to find.

Anyways few updates. Got a used LC-1 wideband kit.

And a mini laptop for just 57$ shipped. It has some screen flicker when you adjust the lid so I am gonna pull it apart and check the wiring. This thing is tiny. Should fit in my glovebox. 10.1" Screen, ~2lbs. 1.8 Ghz dual core, 2 gigs ram, 160 gig hdd, wireless, webcam, 3 usb ports and a serial port ftw.

That's more powerful than most of the computers I have, and more powerful than the one I'm posting on now.

It also lacks an optical drive, graphics card, and the ability to use either internally. I just put a bid on it on ebay. And didn't seriously think I would win it. There is something wrong with the wiring in the display as well.

Still faster than this:

That's what I'm posting from right now. Works reasonably quick with Opera 11 portable, but not like a modern machine.

I would hate to be doing anything on a machine like that.

My desktop rig is a bit dated but its pretty fast. AMD Phenom II Black quad core 3.02 Ghz. 4 gigs of Corsair DDR3, forget the mother board and FSB speeds. But I will say that it plays World of Warcraft on ultra in 25 man raids with a sustained frame rate of 35+. Plays Crysis nicely too.

The main reason I did not want a netbook is that they are generally bleeding slow, low memory, very basic computers. This is a mini note book. It has a memory expansion slot, and few other nicities of a true note book. It just has a very compact battery, lacks a few output/input ports, and an optical media drive.

It's one of the reasons HCS is so lean and mean.

Yeah, that's waaaay faster than the fastest thing I have. But I have more than one computer and an 8-way kvm switch, so I just flip back and forth between the systems when one is taking too long. There's always one of them waiting on me to do something. But I will admit the one that I check email with is a p3-500 running win98se. Yep, that old.

I haven't played video games since my Commodore 64 stopped working, so I've only heard of those games, lol.
