Building a Modern Day (Fast & Furious) 1998 Mitsubishi Eclipse GSX - Part 18 - FIRST STARTUP!


The Eclipse is finally running! In order to safely start the car for the first time, the boys removed the spark plugs and fuel injectors and cranked the engine multiple times to build oil pressure. After building up oil pressure, the boys re-installed all the fuel and ignition components to attempt to start the engine for the first time.

After attempting to start the car with no luck, the boys found out that the firing order was messed up on the car’s ignition system. They quickly fixed the issue and got the car to crank over! Check it out for yourself in the video below!

Now that we know the 4G63 is running fine, we are able to proceed to the next steps of the build. This includes installing the NOS, air suspension, speakers, interior, and our Fast and Furious livery.

Stay tuned for the next Eclipse episode because we are going to install the Fast and Furious livery, which should completely transform the car.
