No. The 97 Eclipses are 5X114.3 bolt pattern. 7th gen celica's are 5X100. Eclipses are ok... but i wouldnt get one either. Dont like how it looks and besides, (sorry Eclipse fans, but...) it uses a crummy version of the 4G63. No its not the exactly the same engine as the Lancer Evolutions. The parts are made out of different alloys and the engine is tuned differently. Remember the Lancer EVOs were made for rallying, so the engine is more developed.
