    Hello everyone my name is Tom, I’m 18 years old. I’ve owned my eagle talon tsi awd since January of 2018. I’ve used this site for a while, but decided to make an account recently. I bought the eagle as a project car, I saved up and started the project in October. First was the transmission which I had done by TRE, then I moved to the engine. This was the first engine that I’ve ever built. I was a bit nervous but took my time and made sure to double and sometime triple check all my work. The goal with this build was to make a reliable and fast car. So far I have enjoyed working on the car and it has been a great learning experience. I’m excited for the future and what’s to come and if you have any advice for me it would be greatly appreciated.

    Welcome Tom. I started my first "project" car when I was 16, 2 Camaros. One good in the back, one good in the front and no drivetrain. I have been where you are so stay meticulous like you are and you will be able to say "I BUILD CARS, I don't buy them!"
    That was 40 years ago or more and I am still doing it.
    Very glad you joined up and don't be afraid to ask if you have specific questions. Someone has been there and done it 99.9% of the time.
    Keep up the good work! :thumb:

    Welcome Tom. I'm also new here. I'm glad you start this passion for car building while still very young. I did not have that chance. Good luck on your build. Mine is going to finish in a few more months. Cheers.
