Was talking to someone that has an eclipse

The other day i saw someone with an eclispe at school and we started talkin and he was sayin that his car was all wheel drive and had Turbo and was getting 360hp to the wheel. afterwards i was thinkin and that sounded like a bunch of BS. and i also tought that eclipse were only front wheel. does anyone else think this is weird or is it just me?

If it's a stock GSX, it can't be putting out 360hp. I think they're rated at 220hp.

It can put that much whp if moded right and tuned correctly. It wouldn't be very dependable if it was moded that much but it is possible.

No older DSM is reliable once you start modding it. LMAO. I make fun of my roommate and his car group all the time because of it.

I bet you anything that he is BS'ing some or all of it. He might have the GSX, but I doubt he is pushing 360 HP. You hear guys with Civics saying they put down 500 HP all the time. It doesn't mean they don't have a civic... it just means they've never had their car dyno'ed.

um, ok? eclipse = 4g63 engine (same as in the evo btw). Turbo upgrade and supporting mods will do wonders. yes there are gsx's that are awd.
