Have fun with that. Couple of my friends have owned DSMs and they've been nothing but problems. Hope you found one that works.

Yeah i looked quite a bit. Seen the car run and such.

DSM's can be a handful. The AWD dsm's are an absolute nightmare i would never even to think to tackle. This one is the FWD turbo version. And while it might be FWD im ok with that.

Should be very very toy to tinker on.

I drove my Roomats 89(maybe a year or two off) Shelby Z Daytona. It was a FWD Turbo and it was fun as hell to drive.... like a sleeper car pull up to a mustang, camaro, corvette etc.. and really give em a run for what looks like a crap car. Car was fun and hearing the boost blowing off was always fun.

Have fun with the Talon.

Welcome to crankwalk city ... icon_lol.gif

I'd NEVER buy a molested DSM puppy_dog_eyes.gif

Congrats on purchasing someone elses troubles icon_rolleyes.gif

i love the people who talk **** about crankwalk......

do your research sir. It's the 7 bolt motors that are known for it.

Not the 6 bolt japanese motor this one has. It hasn't been molested infact all the work was done by a reputable shop.

I wanted to boost the vdub. But a car like this for the price i couldn't pass it up. Not to mention the potential it houses. And by getting it i still retain a reliable DD.

Dude the money you're spending on a piece of **** DSM(sorry just my personal opinion) you could stage 1 that VR. Just throwing that out there. I've driven a Stage 2 VRT Jetta that my friend Kim owns, **** heavenly. Smokes 5.0's without trying. Plus the rumble of a VR is quite naughty, haha.

I've had the misfortune of having to work on some DSMs at school, more of a headache than my aftermarket boosted 5 cylinder VW. I would call it a good car to try to buy and make a profit off of either in a part out or by turning around and finding some kid to take it off your hands. I've got a buddy who traded a MKI Rabbit Convertible for a GST and he's itchin to dump it for a MKIII VR6 now. My personal opinion is buy it, get it running a little smoother and pick some key elements visually to make look clean on the cheap then get rid of it before it becomes a nightmare. Use profit to boost Vr6

I had a 1.8 Eclipse, loved the thing. Got many comments on it as I kept it stock with different wheels. I painted it a nice color which made it stand out.

Id love to get either a GSX or TSi one day, depending on if I stay with rotary power or not.

Crankwalk, ah yes. Glad I never had to deal with that fun.

Good luck, and post pictures. For 2 grand, its a good deal if youre not buying trouble.

For 2k I could have sold you an m3 roller... with a fresh s52 for another 2.5k and you would have an M3 in how ever long it took you to build it...

ha! Seriously DSMs are over rated ;P

Any car can crankwalk. And honestly the amount of DSM's that have done it is very slim.

Also sull notice the car in the background? its a 2g *******. It has the 7 bolt motor known for this thing. I have the 1G!!! It has a repeat after me......6 BOLT!

its a very strong motor. the AWD versions of these cars are more trouble then the FWD. I wanted something to be a project/ weekend warrior. And as my parents said i cant mod the GTI's motor until its paid off because they helped me get it.

This will be a perfect car to do so with.

Thinking about this purchase after your last post, should you pay off your car before you buy another one?

Maybe its just my budgeting theory, who knows.

I highly doubt you have a clue what's done to my Stang or what I've run at the track. No, it's not stock and it will outrun that car.

I already toasted (from a dig) a 1990 AWD Turbo Talon when I just had catback (so I was stock). But I'm not going to get into an internet **** match with you.

Whoever's GT that is, they sound like a complete DUMB ASS!!! First, there's no "bigger wires" on the car. It has COP, not a distributor w/ wires. Second, the stock MAF is more than enough for full bolt-ons. That only needs to be replaced if going FI. I'm supprised he didn't change out his injectors as well. icon_rolleyes.gif
Lastly, who the **** cares how much power he has in the engine b/c he can't put it to the pavement.

If you really want to know what I have in the engine:
* JTL CAI
* 75mm Accufab TB
* Trickflow Plenum
* Steeda UD pullies
* BBK LT headers (shorties don't do **** for these cars)
* BBK O/R H-pipe
* Flowmaster Super 44 w/ 2.5" piping
* Cams designed for the stock heads: 234/230 Dur, 111 seperation, .550/.500 lift
* Tuned, 310rwhp & 316rwtq
* 4.10 Gears
* 31 spline
* MOST IMPORTANT: FULL SUSPENSION.

I drop the clutch from 5500rpm and don't roast the tires b/c of the suspension. If I put a 100 shot, I bet I could be into the 11s after a couple runs (or DAMN close). Is there more potential from the car? Yes. Do I want anything more? No. I believe I've got a good balance of power and reliability.

boosted cars are very fun icon_smile.gif

i've owned a 92 eclipse gst and a 91 gsx. the gst was pretty much completely stock, still ran nice. the gsx was kinda modded. it has full hard piping, greddy bov, evo 16g, greddy intercooler, 2g pistons (8.5:1 compression vs 7.8:1) full turbo back exhaust, ect... the stock gst ran fine, the gsx broke down a lot, it was the stereotypical dsm...

my brother just recently sold his 95 gst, even more mods than my gsx. his had a ton of **** done to it. broke down allll the time. he finally sold it because it was such a money pit... another stereotypical dsm.

although i haven't had any luck with dsms i've read about a lot of people that have. it's kinda of a hit or miss thing. it also depends how you treat it of course, if you abuse it, of course stuff is gonna break, just like any other car. just seems like dsms like to break more lol

good luck with it though! post some pics when you get it

Dunno If i should ACTUALLY boost it. Or slap on one of those ones that LOOKS like a turbo but is belt driven. Centrifugal Supercharger?

Lies.

There was a boosted S10 at camp & drag. He's on S10 forum. Go to event section, and look for "Camp and Drag" - he's on like page 9/10.

HUGE intercooler behind valance. Heard the BOV at the show as well. Videos of him on youtube burning out like a madman.

Dunno If i should ACTUALLY boost it. Or slap on one of those ones that LOOKS like a turbo but is belt driven. Centrifugal Supercharger?

I found the guys posts. Looks like a mean truck. Like how his intercooler says "Pshhhhhh" haha. Can you find a video maybe? I can't find any of his truck.

Probably would have been a good idea to pay attention to what page I was on before I responded to someone's post that turns out to be ancient =P

It blows my mind how little most people know about dsm's. ANY car is susceptible to crankwalk, the amount of actual reported cases is 2% or less. Problem is anytime one dies(regardless of actual reason why said car failed) people ALWAYS jump to the conclusion of cw. Cw is more prominent in late 2g build date cars (general consensus is 50% of all cw cars were '97 and early '9icon_cool.gif so by saying "i have a 1g it wont happen to me" is a false sense of security to have. If you take care of them, they will return the favor. I personally have owned 4 dsms ( 90, 91, 95 tsi awds and a 97 gst) and never had one issue that i wasnt at fault for, i,e blowing tcases launching etc.

Anyway lol what are you planning to do modwise with it?

The guy sold it from under me icon_cry.gif

But i alreadyfound another one. picking it up monday...

Its a 1995 Eagle Talon TSI FWD.

It has a 20g turbo
Tubular manifold
HKS EVC 5 boost controller

Thats about it.

I already have a ported 02 housing, 3 inch downpipe, and a FMIC kit ordered for it =]

I am going to put on my autometer sportcomp II boost guage, and AEM wideband.

Plans are to keep the 20g, run 550cc injectors, a walboro 255 fuel pump, and DSM link and shoot for over 350hp for right now.

next semester ill be running a holset =]

A holset and fwd? like spinning tires? lol the hx35 i would presume. What 20g is on it? if its a ******* 20g thats a 450whp turbo. Why not find a awd man?

Just didn't want a awd talon. I like FWD and im not building it to be a drag car so i don't need it to have that kind of launching capabilities.

Hx-35 maybe. If not ill be going with a garrett setup. Yes it's a ******* 20g haha. i'll be keeping it for a while.

Dollar for dollar the holsets w/ bullzeye housings are hard to beat. Dont get me wrong, i love the gt35r i have on my 1g now, but i could have saved ALOT by going the holset route. I couldnt go back to fwd, i wouldnt trade awd launches for anything lol btw might as well go bigger then 550cc injectors since your going the link 'route, itll save you $$ in the long run.

Thanks for the advice.

Thought about going with 1000cc's haha. Might just have to.

I'm not much of a launch person. Everyone around here does hwy runs. So i'm good there haha. I don't drag race i just want a fun car as a weekend warrior. so AWD wasn't a huge factor for i guess you could say.

very true. I always get reemed for driving FWD. But it's what am used to and it's what i know how to drive best. So i stayed with it.

And i have a GTI VR6 as my daily. icon_biggrin.gif

Just ready to start modding. However the talon which has the 20g is only making 10.5lbs of boost. And he has the EVC turned to 98% so it should be making a WHOLE lot more.

Any ideas where this boost could be leaking at? I was thinking the **** stock BOV or somewhere in the stock intercooler setup.

if it is that i have a FMIC kit coming with a greddy type S BOV.

Build a boost leak tester, it shouldnt run you more then $8 to make. Common places are around the bov flange, ic piping couplers, the ic itself, and around the tb.
