2009 Mitsubishi Eclipse Repair Question
What upgrades could I do to my car?
And esthetic costomization.
That would depend on how fat your wallet is and what extra you want.
I have $10,000
How much additional power do you want from it? Modifications can range from upgrades to the PCM, engine mechanicals, turbos etc.
10k is not too little but it isn't a lot of money too where boosting up power is concerned.
Well i want to get it to at least 220+
Is your engine presently with turbo?
No, everything is stock
Retrofitting a turbo is one way of getting the top speed you want but not a god option as the standard engine components are not going to last. Getting a turbo engine transplant together with the PCM and wiring harness etc would be a better option but the 10k might not be sufficient.
well the car has 163hp i want to get it up to 200 or a bit more
turbo is the only way?
Yes, turbo is the only way but it won't be long before you need a new engine.
Apart from an engine transplant with a higher horsepower you are never going to get that amount of power increase. Even if you are able to retrofit a turbo system to get it, you are not going to have the luxury of enjoying the benefits because you would soon be looking for a new engine for the one you have busted.
