    Guess it depends on how far into Iowa you mean. I am in the Southwest corner of WI as is a buddy of mine that is also on the site.

    I'd be down for a meet if the engine was in my car. Maybe in a month or so it'll be done. I would still love to go to one this summer to check out other cars!

    We are here. Clubdsta.net is the iowa dsm site, but it's pretty small.

    We've tried to have meets in the past, but very few people will show. Most of the time we just end up combining with the subarau meets.

    I never heard of that site. Thanks for telling me LOL.

    Make a date, time, and I'll be there. I know four other people that would love to have a DSM meet.

    yea, not a lot of people have, and the ones who have registered hardly ever come on. me, sax-man, cmspaz and redleader36 are the ones on there the most.

    I'd be in for something, haven't met anyone around here but need to get the car out of the garage. I'm getting too old for this thing!!

    If anyone knows somebody willing to take on a 95 talon with 69,000 miles let me know. Everything is done right, ~400whp, dsmlink, tein suspension. I've got around $38,000 in it. It's a fantastic car but needs someone more willing to keep up with it that I am. Nothing major wrong but needs lots of small "things".
    I did all the work on it with the exception of the Turbo, Exh Man, and O2 housing install. Lucas English completed the tune....

    Let me know...

    My schedule rotates, so I'll have a 50/50 shot of being able to make it no matter when you do it.

    During the week I'm free after 4pm. Weekends, anytime.

    Should have my Talon running within a couple weeks!! :hellyeah:

    I hope this works out if we decide to have a meet this summer. I've never had the chance to look under the hood of another DSM since I've owned mine!
