I haven't bought the car yet... considering it. I hate automatics, but I was wondering... do you guys know what a 91 Talon turbo AWD may run at the track? It's an auto. Are the autos on DSMs crappy? I guess I could look harder for a 5 speed if that's the case. Thanks.

ATs are crappy on the dsms, they dont like mods. As for times I really dont know.

The 1g automatics also have a smaller turbo thus only 180 hp.

Steer away from the AUTO. They do not like mods/

I'm curious about this too. I've never heard a single 0-60 time or 1/4-mile time for the AUTO DSM's. Does anyone have any info on this?

When my everyday driver was stock, it ran 15.60@88mph.
I swapped the turbo, manifold, injectors,a nd fuel pressure reg (from a 5speed turbo used), a manual boost controller and a buschur catback and hiflow cat. At 14lbs of boost, the car ran a 14.20@95mph. Not bad for an everyday driver, and the most I spent was for the catback exhaust.
