Hello all. It has been 20 years since I was in a DSM. I started in 1998 with a Talon ESi Automatic transmission. It was Polo/Monarch green. My next DSM was a red 1990 Eclipse GSX. With the pop up headlights! That was a super cool little car. Now 20 years later I have found that these cars are just nowhere to be found anymore. I couldn't believe that what I considered to be an iconic car would just disappear from the scene like that. Last week I found a green Talon TSi AWD that looked just like my first Talon. I was able to strike a deal and the car is in my driveway. It has a ton of stuff done to it but I do need to get some tweaks done. Biggest problem right now is some idle surge, so I'm going through the idle surge checklist. It also has a welded center diff and that is affecting it's daily drivability. After I've driven it a few months I will decide if it is worth swapping back to stock or if I can live with it. I also have no experience with ECM link so that is going to be a huge learning curve but I think a fun one. My plan is to do a resto-mod of sorts. Cosmetic restoration with keeping the performance upgrades for a nice, spicy daily driver.

Thanks for letting me join your group.
