Im not all too familiar with eclipses, i try to avoid them cuz around here everyone has em, I would think that unless the RS is turbo, you could take that automatic, as for the other 5spd with headers and intake, I would say your chances are slim, I demolished a 98 eclipse with my 91 stock maxima, but i havent raced one in my altima yet, just dont go up against a turbo or you will be hurting

;) Just race it and find out thats the easiest way to find out. I have a friend that has a 98RS with a few mods that claims he can punish me in the 1/4. He runs high 16's to low 17's and seen my timeslip that I got from the track when I ran 16.3 with an intake and claims he can beat me. He says his mph is higher than mine at the end but mine is too when I dump the clutch when launching. I never raced an eclipse but it might be close neither car is that quick anyway

the 4g63 engine is a POS unless it's turboed. its listed at 150 hp, but the eclipse is a heavy sports car kinda like a hippo on skates. you should be able to take the whole lot of them stock.

Hmm......My friend has a 97 GS with an AEM intake and the car is pretty fast......it's an auto as well.

I have alot of mods on my slow ass auto and she can take me off the line.....i get ahead later on though....the trannies are obviously way different being that the Eclipse is a sportier car....

They Respond to mods really well too.....modded Eclipses will surprise you.:cool:

SLOW....only thing you need to know.

You should win no problem.

RS=Real Slow
GS=Goes Slow
Not true, it depends on what model Alty he has, you know that!

Model for model, weight for weight the slow Eclipses and the Altima are pretty damn close.

And to the poster who said that the old Eclipse is a turtle on skates, dude you don't know shit. Look at the weight of the Alty dude!

HIPPO on skates, if you're gonna flame, flame right. besides, the alty is a 4 door SEDAN, not a wannabe sports car. I think that speaks volumes if some base model 4 door sedan can beat a sports car, hell I bet everyone on this website, no check that, the world would rather pay the insurance rate for a faster sedan over a slower sports car any day. and to clarify your other error, an se, gxe, or a gle will easily hand an AUTO gs or rs its ass. the problem with mitsubishi has always been it's auto trannys, they suck and they'll break under the stress of 250hp, unless you sink about 5k into it. mitsubishi also has a problem buying good parts all around for it's engines. it's like a ford or a chevy, for the car to have high hp, it's gotta have major internal work done, I mean everything, crank, pistons , rods, valves, heads, springs, hell, it even needs a radiator, tb, and a whole host of other parts just to reach 400hp. so if you want to get into a flame war on mitsubishi vs nissan, bring it on.

"95 Nissan Altima GXE
its a turbo, thats all you need to know"

That is what you needed to do to make your car fast. Otherwise it is slow as balls.

Why did you change the topic from speed to a reliability issue?

also: why did you mention the insurance? Again you change the topic...who cares about the insurance?

ANY turbo Eclipse will make you and your turbo Alty go crying home to mommy.

do you know the 1/4 mi time for ANY turbo eclipse and do you know cthunder's 1/4 mi time in order to substantiate that claim of yours?

hmmm, what POS do you drive? If you knew anything about alty's to begin with, the difference between any model may be at most 60-70 lbs. Yes I dropped a turbo into my car to make it go faster, but on the contrary, I eat GS-T's and GS-X's for lunch. I am boosting 9psi, which puts me in at about 240whp. so you think a car that weighs "pretty damn close" and has 205 claimed hp at the flywheel boosting 5 psi can beat me? what planet are you from? WRX's stock have troubles keeping up with me and you think a turboed eclipse is going to do the trick? What do you think turboed eclipses are? oh yeah, someone who thinks the fast and the furious is a bible for import racers. I hate to break it to you, but with the mods that they listed, there is no way that that green eclipse could ever be a 10 second car. and to take the reliablity issue, any auto eclipse owner would gladly switch to a 5-speed in a blink of an eye. besides, this flame war was never about speed, you seemed to want to prove people wrong with no evidence besides your own conjecture which I "take with a grain of salt". have you ever driven a turboed eclipse? do you even have a license? are you just some post whore who thinks they know a lot about cars, but doesnt know a crank from a camshaft? so until you grow up and actually get a license, or atleast learn a little about cars before you start flaming people, shut up and learn first.

Cthunder, where did u get ur turbo, how much, and what do u run in the 1/4 mile?
I doubt he'll answer all of these questions, he seems to think his altima is god on earth, and doesn't have time to answer questions by us peons.
