    :D Well I needed a beater car to make my 30 mile journey to work everyday so I would not have to drive the stang around.Just so happens this car was sitting down the street in a driveway for sale. Paid $675 bucks for the car. 92 Eagle Talon TSI AWD Turbo.The A/C even blows ice cold!Drives really well and the turbo spools up and pulls pretty hard.The body is straight and it has a clear title. The alternator went out shortly after I bought it on friday and I bought one at a local salvage yard for 35 bucks and put it in myself. Other than that its a really nice little car for what I paid. I know it's RICE but all its got to do is get me to work everyday. Tell me what ya think:nice: :flag:

    A friend of mine back in highschool, her dad had a 90 Talon TSi AWD Turbo. I drove it a few times. Nice car, pullled hard. If you keep out of the loud pedal and out of boost, will get you great mileage. If not, you'll get some good commuting kicks when the turbo spools up.

    :lol:

    Yea I guess it wouldnt be considered rice unless i put a big fart can on it and some euro lights which im not going to do. I might actually upgrade the turbo because this one stops making boost pretty early.Does anyone know what turbo you can put on these things that bolts right up to the stock stuff. I have heard a 20g is a good turbo:shrug:

    Considering I only paid 675 bucks for the whole car I dont think I will be spending money on stupid motor swaps. And why swap in an EVO motor when I could run 12's with this motor with a bigger turbo intercooler exhaust and more boost. I dont think I will be doing any of this newayz considering I just bought this to be my DD.

    I love those cars. Actually went to look at one right before I bought the Stang, but they got rid of it for some reason or another.

    AWD and a turbo can make for some fun damn launches.

    Is it a 5 speed or auto? And for 675 was there anything wrong with it or did u just get a hella good deal?

    Wow, awsome! Those cars can be made wicked fast too lol.

    Ok guys GO HERE!!!! www.shepracing.com Yes its a 4 banger :eek: .

    Anyways a friend of mine has a 90 I believe it is...same type as yours. On a bog start it went a 12.9 @ 114. LOTS left in it too, and that was like 24PSI...he can go 29-30PSI. Its a very fast car. T 60 trim I think, internals stock except for probe 9.0-1 pistons. Stock cams/heads/intake manifold. Custom exhaust.

    And I met a guy a few moths ago with I think a 92...all he had was like a boost controller and a K&N. Ran mid-high 13s @ 99ish.
