My New Ride LOL

So I got a car today. It will be a spare since I love my stratus.
It is a 1992 Mitsubishi Eclipse GS with a 180-195 hp* turbocharged 2.0 L 16-valve DOHC 4G63T engine. (Yes I made sure I looked it up LOL)
Anyhow here it is...

Automatic. I had an acura integra once that was standard...I always stalled it on the hill to my house. Automatic is just easier for me

When I drove standard I was 6 month pregnant with twins. And It was hard enough to get behind the wheel. I prefer automatic. I have enough distractions when i am driving. :P

It's an engine swap.

ugh. automatic. IMO its stick or nothing in a car like that. least the first generations arent as bad as the second gen eclipse. still not bad. I thought the first gen only came with a 1.8L motor though. ask my cousin, he used to have a first gen GSX with a stick. said it'll do 140, and with the right setup will corner like a monster.
