Can I and how hard would it be to turbo my 1997 Mitsubishi Eclipse GS?

Asked by Nov 06, 2015 at 07:19 AM about the 1997 Mitsubishi Eclipse GS

Question type: Car Customization

I know I would have to get a turbo kit new
manifold and maybe have to lower the
compression. I have recently redone the
heads and probably put over 5000 worth of
parts to make the car like new. Any
suggestions?

Yeah- my answers seem pointless- but you asked- and my answer is directly to the point- it seems crazy to spend a lot of money on a '97 Eclipse- but everybody has different tastes- and if that's what rocks your world, cool! you may be one of those guys in the car mags who takes an old Japanese car to the ultimate show-car status- but if you have that level of expertise and bank account, then why ask us? and if you don't, and you just want it to go faster, a turbo is not the way to go- yes you can put a turbo on it at great expense- but like the thousands before you, the engine would blow up a week later because a turbo needs a different kind of engine that will handle the increased horsepower, the increased loads- so you see- "buy a car that performs the way you want"- right to the point-
