Building a Modern Day (Fast and Furious) 1998 Mitsubishi Eclipse GSX in 22 minutes!


We recently finished building our 1998 Mitsubishi Eclipse GSX and took it to the SEMA Show. It was our first time building an Eclipse and our first time bringing a car to SEMA. We turned this bone stock Eclipse into a JDM legend by rebuilding the engine and installing all-new suspension parts, wheels, tires, and a widebody kit. The goal was to turn this car into a modern version of the Eclipse from the Fast and the Furious movie. When we got the car painted, installed some under glow, and put on the same livery from the movie, it really took shape.

In today's episode of throtl, we recap the entire build and show you the complete transformation of the Eclipse. Check it out for yourself in the video below!

This car has been a blast to build and we cannot wait to get it tuned on the dyno and take it to the track!
