I say take him to the track and find out !

Its really hard to gauge your tune and what a stock eclipse with him driving in it can run, your driving skills, how well YOUR actual motor responded to the mods, etc. So if there is a racetrack anywhere near you ( which I assume there is since he wants to run you there ) I would just race him and see how it goes.

Well the GS has 164 hp stock in a 3400 lb car. So ahhh if you were both stock I would say its a drivers race, but you're trubo'ed so you should blow his doors off.

No the cavy should win even if he misses a shift. I mean, lets just look at stock for stock. The eclipse GS has 163 hp and weights 3400 lbs, his little ln2 made 115hp and weights about 2600 lbs. So the hp/lb on the eclipse is 0.0479 and the cavy 0.0442 thats close with an edge to the eclipse but a good driver in the cavy could win. Now lets say he's makes 200 hp which sounds about right/conservative then his hp/lb would be 0.0769, aka way damn better than the eclipse.

With those mods should be closer to the 230-240 hp range, which ups it even more, though, you would have to factor in anything done body/interior wise for added/removed weight.
