Onto my third dsm, second awd dsm, first 1g awd, etc etc... Its first one good enough to drive it all the way back to my house without any hiccups and be reliable enough to drive it without worries.
Story is, I joined the national guard, got back from basic training and ait, told myself I wouldn't get another dsm but I just couldn't resist, everything else I looked at just wasn't appealing to me, so I went looking for a 2g I could put all my parts in out of my rusty 2g, came up on a great deal on a laser and couldn't resist.

Megan cat back exhaust
high flow cat
act 2600 and lightweight flywheel
tre trans (GVR4 first gear, double-synchro 1st and 2nd, upgraded 3/4 clutch forks, shortened throw)
Solid shifter plate, cable, and cable bracket bushings
2g maf and intake
socketed ecu with custom chip
supra fuel pump
2g awd front brakes
sx fpr modified by burschur to bolt on directly to the fuel rail
manual seat belts
and a few other things
Plans are to swap in my 2g flashable ecu, get coilovers, make sub 400whp, and eventually put my talon exterior on it(front bumper, sideskirts, rear bumper and taillights), oh and mostly, maintain it.
Only problems it has is a few missing interior panels, interior is all red, needs a new passenger side window motor(window only goes half way down), trunk has some rust, and of course paint isn't the best, but compared to my first 1g, this paint's pretty damn good.
Thankfully still having my 1g talon shell, today I pulled out the red interior and swapped it with my black carpet and gray seats. Looks 100 times better IMO.
In the process of swapping it out:
Putting the new stuff in:
And I completely forgot about taking a picture after it was done, just glad it's all swapped out now.
Also, had these laying around for my 2g, but since I'm parting it out, might as well put 'em to use on the laser:
Evo 8 front brembos and brackets
Well, that's it for tonight. Tomorrow I'm going to swap wheels with my 2g, adjust the clutch(engagement's at the very bottom), try and see if my 2g smic hardpiping will fit, give it a much needed car wash, and see what else I can do with it.
