bottom line, don't do it. the stock eclipse engine cant handle a turbo with any significant boost. if you really feel so inclined to proceed on with your project then send me a message and i can tell you anything you need to know about it.

dev is right your engine cannot withstand the extra force because it is a SOHC a turbo will blow your engine.. on the other hand a DOHC engine could handle it. your best bet is getting a 4g63 2.0 DOHC, slap a turbo on there no problem. mitsubishi stopped putting stock turbos on the 2 generation 1999 gsx. and also stopped the AWD models so sad
