Re: My Talon

Sure do. Most reliable car ever driven. Never had a problem.

Toyota ftw! (Love my Evo. Not the most reliable)

Re: My Talon


Right after it happened, blew a hole in the lower timing cover!


Not much left of the wall on Cylinder #1!!! And those are old valve marks on the pistons

Re: My Talon

Wow, that's pretty crazy. I've never seen one blow out like that before. Good thing it didn't damage the timing belt.

Re: My Talon

Holy old Thread.

Update:

Car was repaired, and at the MitsuStyle Fall Dyno Day, it made:

556awhp/459awhtq @ 37psi. E85.
Stock 2.0L 4G63 Shortblock
Felpro PermaTorque
MAP H11 Headstuds
Holset HX40 w/ .55 A/R Bolt-on Housing
FIC Bluemax 1650ccs
Walbro 255HP Rewired

****SOLD**** Later that dyno day to user name "Mondale"
I am very happy with the direction "Mondale" is taking the car.

Look for a project thread in the future!

Re: My Talon

I just re-read this entire thread. That car was so much fun, especially when all the little problems were figured out and it finally was making the sort of power it was supposed to.

I will own another Mitsu one day

The current local owner of the car has made it his own, and has broken into the 8 second world (!!!!!!!!!!).

Re: My Talon

And ad most of you know, Wade who purchased this csr from me went on to make it a badass 8 second dragcar. It then got parted out, and hopefully some other ambitious DSMer is using that shell.
