    A classic throwback to the original Fast & Furious movie
    Hoonigan's Fast & Furious-inspired build is a Ford F-150 Lightning. The build draws inspiration from Paul Walker's shop truck in the 2001 F&F movie

    It wouldn't be a proper F&F homage of the Lightning, without the side stickers on the doors. These ones don't say 'The Racer's Edge" , however

    Up against the Lightning is a 1998 Mitsbishi Eclipse GSX
    It's also inspired by the original Fast & Furious movie. More specifically, the car Paul Walker started its F&F stardom in. However, this one is the real deal

    From the light green paint job and blue stickers to the tall rear wing and carbon-fiber front hood, this is the real-life version of Paul Walker's Eclipse

    How Paul Walker would have, probably, modified the F-150 Lightning
    In place of the 5.4-liter V-8 is a stock 2JZ with a single turbo. Power is sent to the rear axle through a T56 manual. The last time, we saw it, the F-150 "Frightening" was making 500 whp

    Unlike the movie car, the homage car packs a punch
    The green Eclipse from the 2001 F&F movie was a joke and didn't even have a Mitsubishi engine, to begin with. This one has a fully-built 4G63T and all-wheel drive

    Things are looking promising as the AWD Eclipse experiences wheelspin
    This testifies for some serious power. The last dyno pull showed a figure of 533 hp. The engine's turbocharger runs at 31 psi

    The 2JZ in the Ford F-150 "Frightening" packs more punch than before
    The 2JZ is stock, but a single Garrett turbocharger provides 25 psi of boost. Like the Eclipse, the Ford runs on E85. The last and best run showed over 642 hp

    With both cars dynoed, the next step is for Hoonigan to pit them agains one another on the "This vs That" series

    Swipe up for more on both builds
    While purists would argue against putting a 2JZ in place of Ford's V-8, the Eclipse build represents exactly what the movie car should have been. Which one do you think is the better F&F homage?
