Why do eclipses have that hump in the hood? I've never looked at the engine on an eclipse before. I know its probably to clear something just not sure what.

I'm not sure but I think it's for the turbo.

acually i think the hump is for the timing belt cover that sticks up.

A co-worker has an RS, which doesn't have the turbo, and it still has the hump.

Acutually the humps are probally just for looks. You dont have a hood scoop, and the turbo will fit inplace without being raised that much.

Wrong, It is for the timing belt cover.

*EDIT* i just looked under the hood and infact the timing belt cover does stick up higher than the engine about an inch or 2 along with some tubing that runs next to it. So i guess they felt that they should raise that part for extra room. Also the turbo is mounted much lower than the hood.
