this is hard to say because some eclipses are fast, especially the GST's and GSX's.

but a turbo would help your odds

A brain. Let the bastard in the Eclipse wreck his car.

Stop giving the Honda scene a bad name by trying to race/rice the shit out of your car. Just drive it.

If you don't know what you would need to beat another car, then chances are you shouldn't be making the attempt in the first place. Do some research before you go asking retarded questions like that.

If you were to ask what you needed to beat my CRX or my Hatch, I would laugh at you if you showed up with nothing but a "turbo kit" or bolt on-parts. You better be rolling up in a big swap, forced induction, or some Go-Go Juice if you think it's just another run of the mill Civic.

Every car is different. Nothing can be certain. Don't build a car to beat one or two cars--build it to what you can afford and what you think is sufficient for your needs. Anyone can go in a straight line and do it quickly. It takes someone intelligent and lots of planning to make a car that is capable of doing everything.
