    there are some people in my school who think they're badass. one has a riced out eagle talon( not tsi) the other has a stock eclipse(not GT), and my cousin has a 2001 Grand Prix SE auto. I have ridden in my cousins car and it felt slow compared to my 98 V6 5 speed. could I beat all these cars in a drag race?? the only mods I have are a flowmaster 50 series muffler and wide tires

    I dont know about the 94-98 v6s because in all honesty those are pretty slow, I know the 99+ can take the eclipse and talon but not sure about the prix se cause I never raced one.

    you should be able to eat up the ecplise and talon, providing they are auto. if not, itll be a drivers race. the GP is going to tear you to ****

    The Grand Prix SE's had a option for the 3800 L36. (190HP in the SE's). The SE's with the 3.8 run mid to high 15's, so im pretty sure he would smoke you pretty bad. Most Grand Prix SE's have the 3100 (160HP). The 3100 equiped SE's run mid to high 16's. So if you are a flawless driver and the SE doesent have a 3.8 you might have a chance.

    are you totally stock? if so, i'd say the eclipse would be the only sure win. the talons are pretty quick, the GP you'll need quite a bit of work to win. With gears CAI and exhaust i was running a 16.0 in my 98. I'm now down to 15.7-15.5 range with roller rockers and UDP pulley. But very shortly I'll be well into the 14's with ported heads, cam, long tubes, high flow h-pipe and probably running a 50-75 shot of nitrous (may crack 13's with the nitrous). But when i get my blower put in i should be close to 12's.

    lol, who are you serious? The Eclipse and Talon are the exact same car. One is made by Eagle and one by Mitsubishi. Both are avalable in non-turbo, turbo, and turbo all-wheel driver versions. I belive they stoped making the Talons in 1998. But the Eclipse is still made today, but it has no turbo and no all wheel drive :thumbdown

    Wait wait, what years and engines/specs are the talon and eclipse?

    If its the pre-2000 Eclipse, then the talon and eclipse are the same basic car with different names. I'm not too sure about the specs and would venture a guess that with your 1998 V6 and lets say a base talon/eclipse would be a close one coming down to drivers skill.

    If we're talking 2000+ Eclipse - then with the 4-cyl version would be a close win for the eclipse, a 6-cyl a far win for the eclipse.

    the 2g eclipse/talon are exactly the same exept for looks if they are nonturbo then they are slow as **** as for the turbo ones they are quik i've raced my bro 1990 eclipse GSX (turbo all wheel drive) from a launch he eats me alive (cant seem to keep the tires from spining the Tlok would help) but from a role around like 15 mph i can keep up a bit. and my 01 sixer is bone stock!
