    yea its an esi LOL but ive seen a couple of other cars with the lifted hoods and always been a fan, just extra washers so can always go back to stock.

    thanks for the feedback guys

    1. Your hood is broken
    2. Please tell me that isn't some "JDM" toy hanging out back
    2b. Please tell me that isn't some "JDM" tape work to make little X "bandages" out front

    Other than that, it looks pretty clean. ;)

    :hmm: so the hood is on purpose? :confused: take the jdm honda garbage off of it (you're better than that) and has the rim been curb checked? other than that very cool, also dig the 5.7 GOAT. :thumb:.

    Since you are EXTREMELY new, I'll do the nice guy thing ONCE: Read and follow our grammar and spelling rules. Don't post again until they're clear.

    You must have a Lot of Honda's around your area. Lifted hoods on Honda's are usually so the swapped motor will fit. No need for it on a DSM, makes your car look crashed. LOL

    It resembles the color on my Eclipse. The color is Cayenne Red Pearl if I'm not mistaken.

    It creates sort of a cowl induction look without an actual cowl hood. A bunch of ###s have been doing as of late.

    I think the yellow tape crape needs to go. How old are you anyways? That shocker symbol would have been funny or cool when I was 17. But I dont know many 17 year olds with 2 cars, much less 2 that look that nice on the outside.

    Wow please take off all those silly band-aids, fix the hood and then I will say welcome home bud. Keep that car clean 97-98 are a dying model, everyone likes converting them to the eclipse.

    He's new here and probably just bought the car so rather then make comments that are supposed to offend him why don't we try welcoming him to the site instead? Remember, we were all "newbs" at some point and probably made the same mistakes and asked the same questions if not worse so why don't we try giving him a break? :)

    OP - Nice Talon and even nicer GTO. Welcome! :thumb:

    Yes I can look the other way on everything as long as you dont convert it to an Eclipse. 2GB Talon FTW
    Oh n what does the engine decal mean, never saw it before?

    The hood thing has been used to get a little extra cooling on the cheap. And probably copied by a lot of other people just for the look. Doubt you need it, but do whatever you like, not like it's hard to change it back.

    Take the sticker off your rear bumper (took some looking for me to even see it) and fix your front bumper so you can take that tape off of it. :p I'm at a loss as to what the engine decal means... maybe "Disregard the CEL while driving this vehicle".

    Otherwise, you have a very clean looking Talon. Please don't do the Eclipse conversion, or anything that will severely change the appearance. One of, if not the top rule around here is: NO BODY KITS for 2Gb Talons, and the only ones allowed for other years/models are ones that actually offer a performance advantage. As far as I know, there are only two of those.

    Don't let that drive you off by any means, there are still plenty of things you can spend money on if you're so inclined. Or just drive it and enjoy it. Happy motoring! :)
