    The eclipse has clear tails, only a muffler, and a huge wing.

    Mine has a stock spoiler, full 3" exhaust and no clear tails, no rice here.

    IMO, that Talon blows the Eclipse out of the water.

    That Eclipse has a huge, gaudy "combat" wing, clear tailights and stock rims.

    The Talon on the other hand is a nice, clean silver, lowered on some decent rims, STOCK tailights, and the stock front bumper on the Talon looks better than the stock Eclipse bumper.

    The talon looks much better the the eclipse. The Talon's rims are awsome and the car looks very clean. The eclipse has that god-awful wing.

    But both are looking clean. Keep on modding.

    too bad talons and eclipses are crazy ugly, they are such fast cars with a little bit of money, too bad they dont look better.

    Lets see your beautiful 92 Acura Legend (honda accord+gold emblems) :rofl:

    I really wish people knew what they were talking about. The legend and the accord do not share a SINGLE part. Not one. The legend is the same thing as the Acura RL (still called the Legend in all the countries that do not use the Acura name, and called the Honda Legend) The RL is the 3rd generation legend using a 3.5L bottem end, and detuned type 2 legend heads as its engine, along with longer gear ratios (only available in autos)

    The 2nd generation (91-95) legend first came out to compete with the BMW 5 series and Mercedes E class. And as far as reviewers were concerned, it was the better car. It was very technologically advanced for its day. The engine layout was simply unheard of. It IS front wheel drive, but it is not the normal, driveshafts behind the block setup. the driveshafts go through the oil pan, which really helps to balance the car out. (called midship front wheel drive) It also came with one of the first factory 6 speed manual gear boxes (type 2 legends could be had with these) The type 1 legend (91-92 coupe, and 91-95 L and LS sedans) came with a 3.2L SOHC engine, with 200hp, and 210ft lbs of torque, it is not a normal honda engine, but quite powerful for its day. It is equipped with a VIS system (variable intake system) which controls 3 butterflies (separate from the normal throttle body butterfly) This greatly helps to keep the a/f ratio even throughout the rev range and keeping power up, instead of letting the air going through the intake do the work, and mess up the a/f ratio, because its not always going to be a perfect exponential thing between the air coming in, and the revs. Then there was the type 2 legend (93-95 coupe, and 94-95 GS sedan) This could be had in the 6 speed manual, or a 4 speed auto. The only differences between the type 1 and the type 2 were, tuned heads to allow more air, modified ECU to account for the extra air, so new fuel graphs, and a bigger diameter Y/A pipe for the exhaust (1.3" for type 1, and 1.8" for type 2) This is where the extra 30hp come from.

    Anyway. The legend engine is a C engine block, depending on the year. C27A for the 1st generation, C32A1 for the 2nd generation(C32A5 for the type 2), and RL uses the C35A1/2. The first generation TL came with the same C32A1 in the 2nd generation legend, and the 3.2 liter NSX uses the same bottom end as the legend, but it utilizes a DOHC VTEC head which is where its extra power comes from. NSX has the C32B engine.

    Also, the only V6's that have gone in the accord were the C27C in the 95-97 Accord, which was SOHC non-vtec, and 170hp. All of the other accords have been with a J series V6 (transversely mounted 60 degree V6) The C engines have ALL been Longitudinally mounted (looks like a RWD engine mounting) and 90 degree. Meaning they are not very tall, but very wide.

    Is there anything else you would like to know about legends, because I could probably go on. oh yes, here is a picture of a few of the G2 legends, the black one being mine.

    You really need to get a spoiler like on that red car (2nd pic). Also ditch the 4x4 look and it will look decent.
