    Hey all,

    Names Evin, I'm 30 next month, and located in Idaho. Picked up my first DSM, a black 95 GS-T, last month. When the car ran, I loved it...but now I'm having issues and was directed to this site haha. Anyways, coming from sport bikes to turbo cars is a new experience, so I will likely be asking a lot of stupid questions.

    There are no stupid questions just the ones you don't ask. These are temperamental little cars but with proper maintenance and your own touch, they can and are fun as hell.
    Welcome to THE BEST DSM Site, we are glad to have you around and look forward to helping you enjoy yours!

    Nice car! Actually my 95 is stock still surprisingly. I am hoping to put the same bumper you have on yours on mine after a while.

    Thank you for the welcome!

    Where about in Idaho? I just picked up a 98 Gst that needs a serious rebuild. Lets share local parts contacts. I'll be rebuilding mine throughout this year including visits to the local yards for parts. Welcome to the forum.

    311 thanks! Got her running, the stupid metal pin that holds the starter was pinned between the motor and trans. Now that that's resolved, I'm working on putting some cosmetic parts in her since she's running good. I'm doing a 99 front end bumper and headlights, with 15% window tint, godspeed front sway bar, and just doing the typical sway bar links/tie rod ends to update them. I'm going to try and post a picture of how she is with the tint now if my phone will let me.

    I look forward to see what you do with the car, I personally have to agree that the 2GB front and rear looks better than the 2GA ones. Good luck!

    Welcome to the site. I pass thru often even in my daily "big rig" and I'm currently restoring a 95 talon with a 98 Mitsubishi body. Got mine from a local friend it's an auto. Just getting the maintenance done before the upgrades.

    Here she sits with the 2GB front (on the right). I need to paint it still, but it looks a lot better. Currently putting a list together to do a 400hp build. I'm needing to hunt down an ecu so we will see how that goes. Eprom is the one I want in case I can't get Dsm link right away correct?

    Well, we are getting the parts in. The B16T kit should be here in a few days at most. Now to figure out how to change the pins and which ones. Also have 850cc injectors ready that aren't pictured.
