Questions for my 1997 Mitsubishi Eclipse 2.0 420a, turbo, tail light conversion, and exterior.?
I have always had trucks, 4x4, fast, and diesel powered trucks, due to the rural nature of my hometown in SC. My eclipse is the first car that I have had. I am not one of those retards that ask about turbos when they haven't even seen someone else's set up to compare with what they want. That being said I have mechanical experience with turbos and engines in trucks but never a 4 cylinder street car. So please don't think I'm stupid I have done some research but I am asking this so that I can get all my answers for the whole car, (exterior, interior, engine and sound system) on the same web-page. Thank you for your answers and this is a serious question please refrain from replying with snide comments. Also if you have an eclipse that you love as much as mine I would love to hear/see your set ups, I am definitely open minded for different routes in total car builds. 1. What is the easiest, safest, and best looking option for me to turbo charge my eclipse. I know it is more practical to sell and get a GSX or GST but I have spent too much getting it to drive good. So should I; a- Get the 4g63t conversion? how much would that run? b- Use a GST set up? Will the turbo fit to my 420a engine? if so what parts would I need for the conversion? c- Go eBay in this b***h? Get a t3/t4 turbo kit and keep a low boost setting to keep from blowing the engine and cylinders? what extra parts would I need other than those included in the kit? Also, I definitely want to convert the tail lights and rear body kit to the supra. I know I need the tail lights and body kit but is there anything else I'm not thinking of before I can mold in the new lights? Lastly, my goal with my car is to have it show quality and in a magazine by three years from this coming march. Anyone have suggestions for paint job, (I want the Dukes of Hazzard paint job with General Li instead of Lee due to the Japanese making and style of the car), specific body kit, rims, interior design, speaker and sound/visual system, and extras for the engine drive train transmission and electronic component? Thank you once again for all of your help and I am very anticipative to see the set ups from the people of the Yahoo! Answers community.

My Mitsu has Injen air intake, Duraflex body kit, Spider smoke head and tail lights, Magnaflow exhaust system and yesterday I ordered for myself new Brembo brakes))) In a year or so I'm planning to have a Lambo doors.

option A would probably be the safest, but probably the most expenisve bet as you would need the engine, ECU, transmisison and other things... More
