    1992 Talon Tsi AWD Re-habilitation

    You are the best my friend! The sticker set is exactly what I needed! I have been using your restoration for what I need for the ins and outs of my return to life of my Talon. Everything you have done has given me the fire under my ass to make my car perfect. I'm going to take out the interior...

    1992 Talon Tsi AWD Re-habilitation

    Wow! That looks wild and liking the colour of your Talon. I just got my car back from Magnus and he rebuilt and upgraded my clutch with a exceddy stage 2 and a upgraded transmission which was worth every penny. Had a problem with my computer after I got it back from DSM link but they fixed it...

    10 year hibernation, this is a rebirth of a 92 talon.

    Hey guys, well not having any luck moving forward on my build. Car was having a problem with charging and with ac on draining the battery and alternator unable to keep the volts up so I changed it. I'm frustrated and stressed out. Still have the hesitation but it's everywhere on the rpm range...

    10 year hibernation, this is a rebirth of a 92 talon.

    Car has been running all summer and still have two problems one with setting up the spec1 profec greddy boost controller with a replacement solenoid. The worst is a hesitation I have at cruising in third at between 2500 to 4000 rpm which I think it might be dirty injector. I have replaced fuel...

    Thanks guys and unfortunely, I'm a dyslexic math teacher so I forget to break it into paragraphs. Car is in storage and waiting for my brother in law to bring me oz racing rims that I got from this site. This forum is an amazing thing, I can't believe the power we can get out of these cars and...

    10 year hibernation, this is a rebirth of a 92 talon.

    Hey guys and girls if there are any. It's been a little while but it's time to continue the build. Well this is when I tell you that because of depression and grieving for the loss of my mothers battle with cancer I had to put aside the car and worry about real things like paying the mortgage...

    This is a reply to louieawdtsi. That's pretty funny because my kids have been asking me to bring my car because I talk about it when dictating spelling test and using my talon when making sentences with words like, "Mr. K's talon tsi is ridiculously fast!" "The word is ridiculous." I know we are...

    10 year hibernation, this is a rebirth of a 92 talon.

    The plan was to swap all the goodies from my original car to the new car. So I switched my AEM 11.5 inch rotors and two piston callipers 16g and my wheels and rubber changed the stock lenses to the new car and got rid of the blacked out versions that I hate. This was going to be a quick change...

    10 year hibernation, this is a rebirth of a 92 talon.

    Working nights and taking care of my mom, I was able to focus on my super car build to keep my mind off of her cancer. So I added a new fluiddyne rad, that was needed because of the lack of air because of the FmIC. This still didn't stop the temp from going directly to the middle or 12 o'clock...

    10 year hibernation, this is a rebirth of a 92 talon.

    Well guys maybe we can call it project "French Canadian turbo charged teal Lonnie feet" instead of eagle talon? I'm up for renaming the build, let me know if you have any ideas? Looking for more power a friend offered me his 92 teal talon. Car needed a alternator like all talons need, but...

    10 year hibernation, this is a rebirth of a 92 talon.

    Thanks a lot fellow DSMers. I would like to note that being 41 and a teacher, I don't condon street racing. I was young and not to sound old, things were different. I am a track guy but do get groceries from time to time. I always practice safe driving. Here in Toronto from the mid 90's to...

    10 year hibernation, this is a rebirth of a 92 talon.

    This story of a guy who wanted a street machine with all of the technology. I've always loved cars and when I was 13 years old I started my first full time job, now it might seem crazy but I worked Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday. For three years I saved and saved. My father died when I...

    550whp 1990 AWD

    Amazing build! I just put in a real 20g turbo opposed to eBay junk, but I wanted a holeset hx35. Your build is extensive. I'm excited to see what that hx 40 will do. All the hard work and especially the research on this site will pay off. Like you said do it right with the right parts once and...

    Love to hate the good ole DSM awd

    Unfortunately this is common for a dsm but when everything is done you'll be happy. My love affair with mine lasted almost ten years while it sat in my garage. Car is now running fixing all the small things that needed to be addressed and just made 362 whp, but I have to fix a valve seal...
