What the heck is the exhaust on the POS next you your car.

Forget bananas down the tailpipe, I'd shove a whole pineapple down that!

the exhaust is like that because it has to clear the rear suspension / AXLES (if it's AWD).

Those things can put down some mad horsepower, a muffler that big is needed to help with flow. 22 psi is normal for those cars.

it's an eclipse, made by mitsubishi, also known as a DSM (Diamond Star Motors) because it's a joint effort by chrysler and mitsubishi, hence the diamond (mitsu) and star (chrysler).

Those things, depending on the year, have some of the stout-est 4 cyl turbo motors that come stock in a production car. 25+ psi can be attained with the correct fuel turbo and driveline mods, on a stock bottom end. Yes, I'm aware that we can do 25 psi with the same appropriate mods, however we don't have a large aftermarket to supply the required driveline mods cheaply. You can make a 400+ whp DSM for 3,000 USD running 11's, and retain the complete interior and ammenities (I've seen it done more than once).

I want one.

495 whp, AWD. Stock short block & head. just a tad more than $3000 in mods, but not as much as it would take to get a Volvo into the 11's on the redblock.

the exhaust tilts like that is not for the rear half shafts.

they are place like that for fashion, it looks like a HKS SideWinder. I was gonna buy a 5Zigen Titanium can and place it bit tilted, but it looked wack, just doesn't suit the car.

one of their car, a street legal (pass emission & safety), daily driven Talon TSi just did a 9.3@150mph pass.

Umm, ok.

Wanna race it?

It's a 12 second car.

true, you can't put a redblock in the 11's (and have it last more than one pass) for 3k, but look at the differences in aftermarket.
