Default 98-99 eclipse gs-t or 01-04 Acura rsx-s?

I am trying to buy one of these cars, but i don't know which one is better. I like the type-s but the gst comes stock with turbo and looks cool too. I just need a little help picking and prodding at these two reasonable cars and figuring out the best choice for me. I own a 93 integra ls and have done alot of mods to it so if i choose a newer car i would like a better, comfortably faster one.

cool you are right sean i was going to go for the rsx- s but what car is 8sec car stock that sells for under 11thousand i am curious.

well it depends... if you mean faster, then go with the Eclipse, but if you mean overall quality and better handling then the RSX-S is better. Personally i Perfer the 05-06 rsx-s, that's the next car on my list.

Well, none of the cars you listed are fast, but that's not the point. The GS-T is a mid 15 second car stock, the RSX-S is a high 14 second car stock. The RSX is also much more reliable than the GS-T, considering the crankwalk woes of 2nd gen eclipses. Sure, it's factory turbocharged, but that doesn't matter much when the transmission is practically made of glass and the engine is weak. Also, the interior of an eclipse designed in 1994 isn't going to be nearly as nice as an RSX designed in 2000, especially given that Acura is a higher class brand than Mitsubishi.
