    I dunno, maybe $5000. I've been modding it since I bought it new in 1997. You know how stuff can add up over the years.

    I decent turbo system for a LS1 runs about $5-7k... STS I heard is a midrange system that doesn't really produce a great deal amount of power...PTK (ProTurbo Kits) are the all around best if you were wondering. But they run $8k and up...sucks huh? Most of them are rear mounted turbo's...I'm thinkin a nice Procharger...

    do you knwo what turbo was in the eclipse? or what year it was. also...20si on a stock gti with their shitty lil turbo would probably give them less power because the turbo is so small and would heat the boost up a lot.

    I raced a GSX with 20lbs of boost in my other ta. He had me off the line all the way till I was at the top of 2nd. After that it was all over. Had him by about 2 cars.

    Saying "I beat an Eclipse with 20psi" makes as much sense as me saying "I beat an LS1 F-body at 0psi" (naturally aspirated).

    In both cases, we have stated the thoretical pressure in the manifold. But both cars could be running anywhere from somewhere in the 14s to somewhere in the 11s. There is so much more to the equation than intake manifold pressure. On N/A cars, this seems to be understood (cams, heads, tune, exhaust, etc get mentioned). But with turbo cars, supercharged cars, or nitrous cars, the boost or the shot is the only yardstick that tends to be used.

    i,ve run my buddies eclipse, it is a 96 gst w/ a 6 bolt crank from a first gen model, he's got a complete top end rebuild plus forgred rods and pistons. i cant remember what turbo but im thinking a 16g. he ran 26 pounds on the car. my bone stock ls1 w/ a flowmaster muffler pulled him about 3/4 of a car from a 20 roll.
