Question about 2001 Mitsubishi Eclipse

1 Answer

I have a 2001 Mitsubishi Eclipse GT, I'm looking to give my car a more sporty & deeper growling sound. I was told adding a set of "headers" could help and give me more horse power. What are headers and how do I choose quality sounding and looking headers? How difficult are they to install?

If you are just looking for sound(and a little bit more horsepower) then I would only add a Flowmaster or Magnaflow exhaust muffler, the 60 Series Delta Flow would be a good choice for your Mitsubishi Eclipse GT. Click on the link below to view and hear what it would sound like (scroll down to almost the middle of the page and click the watch video link)

Headers will give you alot more horsepower vs. exhaust but you would have to consider buying a "smog legal" set if you live in a state where the smog laws are tougher like where I live here in Southern California.

Here's the website where headers can be found for your GT

    Headers are not hard to change, all you need is a basic socket set and a good cheater bar and some WD-40 to penetrate the rusted and stuck bolts. Just take your exhausat manifold off. It's as easy as it looks

    To change them out you will need to remove 12 bolts, 9 are on the head, and 3 on are the cat. After you remove them, pull the stock header off of the block and then screw the oxygen sensor back into the new header and re-install all the bolts with the new gaskets.

My 2001 eclipse will not start. i try and turn the key then a loud soaring grind noise is made and it wont turn over>>>>>>

I'm not sure what you mean by "a loud soaring grind noise", but an educated guess would be a bad bendix on your starter. Second to this could be some missing teeth on the flywheel.

I'd suggest you check with friends, relatives, etc. and see if they can recommend a reputable local mechanic to look into this for you.

Good luck!
