1990 Eagle Talon TSi Turbo 2dr Hatchback


Review

I've been building DSMs for three years now and my current '90 Talon has been, by far, my favorite build. This is not a consequence of superior build, but rather the availability of time and money to work on the project. I've restored this Talon to like-new condition (full engine rebuild, interior refurbishment, etc.) and built the car to *hopefully* run high-twelve-second quarter miles. Incidentally, the project is entitled "Project Reliable" because it is intended to debunk the myth that DSMs are unreliable. I intend to prove that it is a matter of maintenance and build quality on the part of the owner, not the manufacturer, that determines the ultimate fate of any race-built vehicle.


Best Features

2g exhaust manifold, 3" turbo-back exhaust, external dump o2 housing, 30x9x3 FMIC, 2g MAS/Dejon tool intake/K&N filter, Joe P MBC Autometer, -30/30 boost gauge, Autometer EGT gauge/probe, 550cc injectors, Walbro 255lph HP fuel pump, Apexi S-AFC Datalogger, KYB AGX struts, Prothane motor mounts.


Worst Features

EVO III 16g (to keep daily driven reliability easily attainable), LSD (I've got a transmission on my porch I need to rebuild - it has an LSD all ready installed), ACT 2600 PP and lightened flywheel.

1990 Eagle Talon TSi Turbo 2dr Hatchback


Review

178,000 miles and still has a load of
ZIP!. Plus really decent fuel mileage,
especially for the power it puts forth,
C'mon 2L's competing with 5.0 Fords!
Word of warning though is for finding
mechanics for anything really, everyone
seems to not want to work on it in
small towns, and when you do find a
place that will... it will cost too
much, so if you find one you like,
check out the things you want first...
ie:Air conditiong, etc...


Best Features

Looks, Fuel Mileage, 190 Horses, tar gripping tires!!!


Worst Features

Less expensive way to replace air conditioning components, add a cup holder, (deep ones)!!!
