His GSX vs your 5m-gte?
If he hasn't done anything with his car you'll win.
The guys around here who have done turbo conversions are doing what.. like high 13's to low 14's on stock boost? not 100% on that so don't quote me.
Stock the turbo eclipses do a 14.9-15.2 1/4 mile.

5m-ge he'll take you by a fairy good margin even if he doesn't know how to drive all that great and you do, unless he's REALLY bad, lol. Otherwise he'd take you by a good 7 cars at least.
6m-gte he'd lose.

6m-ge he'd still win unless he was up against a really good driver and he didn't drive very good, and at that it would be closer but I'd put my money on the GSX.

And like zankone said off the start they're fast. AWD really hooks up.

re:

I'm guessing a strong 6M-GE vs. a GST or GSX Eclipse would be a close race. My opinion is that the vehicles are pretty well even, so it would be up to the driver to make the difference. 5M-GTE/6M-GTE vs. GST or GSX, no contest there :)

Okay I have a couple of friends who is on to DSM... I let you assured they are suprisingly quick if built right... the GSX is mean off the line but a 5MGTE should take it if the GSX is just mildy moded....

we have raced a fully built 1g gsx running 20psi boost and we beat the hell out of that one with my friends H23 Turbo prelude about 5 car lenghts just running 14 psi

I have raced a 1G GSX with my 6MGTE on 6psi and left his ass at 1/8 mile of the 1/4 mile and he got more bolt on parts on his car....

Its all in the driver and how the car is tuned up right and built right

A good friend of mine here in Quantico has a GSX and I've raced him once or twice.. I will say only this... After the hole shot (which put a car length and a half on me), he couldn't get away from me, and I am a tired 5M-GE. The ONLY time AWD helps is in the first 60' of a race..after that, its just added weight.
