I'd be a little concerned with it being a DSM motor and having a boost controler. I'd question your friend about boost spikes and see how high of PSI he has been running in the past. I've seen some pretty cool Eclipses with cracked heads and blocks.

i drove one. they were quick and the turbo could creep up on u if u wernt paying attention. nothing crazy, just would start to pull without extra input on the gas if u didnt keep the rpms low.

Very good deal!! Just be carefull buying a high dollar car like this, just because you got it for $2k doesn't make it cheap to fix. This was the car that evolved into the 3000GT/Stealth so parts are probably expensive and rare. My old neibor still has one that she bought new in 1989, and drives often.

me and my buddy just got one this summer for $500 bucks. it didn't run or anything but the body was in pretty nice shape. we ended up building the whole engine up gutted the inside of the car and put a gt35r on it. we still have to finish installing everything but it should be pretty quick when its done.
