Anyone from the southeastern part of PA, like around Reading, Lancaster, places around there? That would want to get together...? Just so you know my 92' TSi is bone stock :) But I just got it so I'm planning on modding/upgrading when I get the money. Thanks.

Actually, I live in Indiana Pa. My bro lives in Tyrone, not to far from State College. Some of us met out in front of Beaver Stadium last year, were you there?

Where are you from?

I go to PSU Main campus but live outside Philly. I heard about that meet last year but at the time I didn't have my car at school so I didn't go. Are there going to be anymore meets at Beaver Stadium? I'd like to go to a meet before I graduate in May.

Make sure you join our mailing list if you can. There are a few pa dsmr's already at PSU main campus, two or three that I know of. I grew up in N/E Phila. If you get on the mailing list, post a message about meeting somewhere in SC and I am sure some people will respond! I know I would come!

Mike, greenstreak and I are friends and he's just busting on me because my car has been at a local Chrysler dealer for 3 months because of all the problems I'm having with it. I think I'm going to set some kind of record for the longest stay at a dealer :(

MikeHuml
03-02-2001, 12:28 PM
Thats erally not a good record to have! Is there anything anyone on the padsm list can do to help, or are we talking major problems?

Well it started out as getting my carrier bearings replaced because I was having a vibration from the rear and escalated to a replaced transfer case (under recall luckily) and now a new rear diff. I had no idea it would take as long as it has. If I had the resources, I'd be doing the work myself since the dealer is taking forever. This just goes to show you that if you want something done, you gotta do it yourself.

MikeHuml
03-02-2001, 12:49 PM
Devil,

Yea, stuff like that my bro and I do ourselves. It is usually quicker than going to a dealer! If you need help in the future, we will help for next to nothing if it is something we can do. We have all the power tools and we each have a garage at our house. Let us know in the future if we can be of any help! I hope you get your car back!

RedDevil
03-02-2001, 12:58 PM
Mike,

Thanks for the offer, I'll definetely keep that in mind if anything happens again. At this point I don't know what else could possibly break on my car that has already been replaced ;) But with my luck, who knows....

Any of you guys want to go to e town next Sat? We will be leaving Fri night and getting a hotel room in NJ somewhere. We will be filled up as far as space in the car though. so if you want to go, you would have to drive unless someone in my group drops out

Wow, good to know there are some DSMers around here. All I see are modded Volkswagens and, of course, Ephrata's fair share of Honduhs.

Allentown seems to be in the middle of everything. Im furthest north of anyone. Im about 1.5 hours north of Allentown. Philly DSMers are about 1-1.5 hours away also. Allentown is also good for NJ DSMers also. Its up to you guys. You guys give some suggstions... Where else could it be?

I threw a little something together last year in the Allentown area and it came out pretty good. We all had a good time and a good turnout. I am going to start a post soon about another meet and I will decide on a location after I determine a central point for the majority of the people interested. Last time that ended up being in Philipsburg Nj, right near Easton. Here are a few pics of the last one.

It has been a long time since I posted here! If no one has been following for a while ( like me ) I would like to get an official meeting for Padsm sometime in May-June. I would like to have it somewhere in Central Pa, so its central to everyone.

I would like to have it somewhere like Lake Raystown, so everyone can com up for a weekend. MAybe camp, rent some cabins, boating, showing off the cars. etc. Is anyone up for a big get together such as this???

MY car is back together again, cannot wait to see some of you guys at the track this year!

If anyone is from the Indiana, Pa area, drop me a line! Sign up for padsm mailing list at the link on my website.

New website and stuff coming soon!

Yup I'm from Allentown............but NOPE won't go to any gatherings. reason #1.....I'm 34 years old and I wanna start shooting people if I hear rap music or white kids talking Ebonics. In fact is annoys the crap out of my black friends too........ROFL..........this old timer won't fit in with you kids though I have some cool stories. 50+ performance cars, 20+ turbo cars and an 8 second BB Duster "money car" that I used to terrorize NYC and Philly with about 10 years ago. Fun,fun.

Reason #2- my DSM is my daily driver........its kinda rough looking....plus I just found out my motor is shot. You don't want all my oil smoke fouling up your meeting do ya??

And oh if you really want a cool place to meet all you guys haul your butts down to Maple Grove on a friday night for street race night- go there and show the Honda guys up.

(tongue slightly in cheek here don't be offended!!)

That is probably the nicest looking 2nd gen I have ever seen, IMO of course. I love the color.

From my estimation, there would be about 10-15 dsm guys from just out the Pittsburgh way that would go to an overnight gathering. We could either stay at the esort, or do a little camping, either way, does not matter to me. We should firm up a weekend here soon however. I know there is a race somewhere near the end of May, Maple Grove I think, so that would obviusly be a bad weekend.

Any dates that would be good maybe the 1st or 2nd weekend of June?

It would be the 1st official padsm get together!

What scares you more? The car going sideways on the 2-3 shift or not being able to get the 5 point saftey harness fastened by the time its ready to do a WOT pull. I'm kinda glad I got my logger, because it gave me some seat time in mikes talon after the new motor :P NOw he has his own logger, so he won't need me anymore :confused:

why do you still haev the T25??

2low4fathoes
03-19-2002, 01:30 AM
cause i cant decide if i want to sell the damn car and buy a vr-4 or keep it.. and i dont want to spend all the money to put a turbo on if im just going to sell it... so my other option would be to find a used turbo i guess that way i get both....

Just curious, but does anyone plan to go to Island Dragway, NJ, Friday April 5th for the free night of racing? $7 pit pass is the only cost. I plan to go, weather permitting.

First time at any kind of drag strip. I'm know my car should run 12s, but w/o the experience that could be a different story. ;)

Hey guys i am from the Hazleton area, we have about 8-10 guys here with modded DSM's, but most are off the list and not posting.I attended the PA meet at PSU about a year ago, for the few of us there it was a good time. I would be intersted in joining a meet someday at a track or something with more people. Instead of going with the Mustang and Camaro boys to the track (no real fast cars around this area, competion is easy) I think it would be a great site to show up at a small track here in PA and blow the minds off the V8's and show them what our DSM's can do. :P it would make a good photoalbum also. :D

cya's soon i will be checking periodically on the status of a meet locally.

Hey all, I'm surprised I hadn't seen this thread. I'm in Hershey PA. I was at the NJ meet (Yes, my car is in those pics, and it's a red 1G :) so it wasn't all 2G's). I'm game for a meeting pretty much anywhere, but NJ is too far away for the pittsburg guys. Even Allentown is a stretch for them. It's not really central to PA, but from one side of NJ to the other of PA, maybe. We've got an all DSM track day scheduled for April 27th 2002 at 3pm-7pm. $30/car to run. Just us, rented the track out. Anyone is welcome if it's a DSM. I say June is a better month, simply because it seems all the shows in PA are in May. Carlisle, Import War mainly, and that's 2 weekends out of May already. Just my thought. Allentown/pottstown is fine w/ me, but I don't know that the pittsburg guys want to drive that far. I wouldn't drive to NJ again...long ass trip for some smelly bathrooms. :) Was a great meeting, just not a great meeting spot. Let me know how we can help (SPA/HERSHEY DSM) We've got probably 25 people that will show up...

Oh...hey...I forgot. :) Last year I organized a meeting/picnic for our SPA-Hershey Group, and we had 27 cars show up. It's in Lebanon PA (South of Harrisburg...towards Lancaster / Eprhata area) It was in a great park, and we can rent pavillions, had a HUGE parking lot, at least 100 cars would fit and there are other spots to park as well, has a HUGE pool w/ changing rooms, basketball courts, tennis courts etc etc. and it's in a really nice area. It was like $25 to rent the pavillion for the day. GreenStreak, please email (DSMmania@dsmtalk.com) me if you feel interested at all. Directions are simple.

Hey curt, can I just show up, or should I make arrangements? I'd like to go to the track with some guys who've been their before. I've never been their, and I would like to take this opportunity for some dsm'ers to show me the ropes :D

I graduate from school here in Texas in may then i start another school in allentown in the middle of june. Hopefully i will get to meet some of you guys around there. Just one question though-how is the street racing around allentown?

As far as minersville is concerned. JEEZE thats a hop, skip and jump for me.. Anyone around these area's with a datalogger so i can tune my AFC..

You can make a trip out my way any time you want!!!! I would be glad to help you out, but I bet there are a few guys close to you with a datalogger. Once it gets warmer out, maybe me and my bro will venture out that way to hang with you guys if someone can put us up for the night!

Got a new dsm in the family yesterday, my bro ( and the driver of my 91 tsi ) bought a 90 awd tsi!

Thats awsome stuff MIKE! Is nick going to be in altoona this weekend I want to see this car! What color is it? HOw many miles. Did he get a good deal? My new lash adjusters should be in friday evening. HOpefully thats the case, as its not running without them. My dammed downpipe isn't in, but the car will still run without it :( Maybe i'll disconnect it after the car, and run open exhaust till my new DP comes in :D

Anyways, i'm in williamsport at school and I have a datalogger if anyone needs help. E-mail me at hondadan18@hotmail.com and I'll be glad to help you out. 1g's only, sorry :(

Also, i'm in the altoona area on the weekends, but time is usually lacking. HOwever, I can usually meet people in altoona on the boulevard on some weekends to log their car if need be. We usually have a few dsm'ers out as well.

Hey guys. I live in Orwigsburg, which is below Pottsville. There isn't that many DSM'ers around here. Seems like all I do is race these freaky neons.

For everyone, the NOPI event in Reading is May 11-12th. This event is going to be big.

Also, for everybody, Carlise is having the Sport Compact Event May 3-5. First weekend. My buddy was down last year and said it was huge. Definitely going this year.

Yeah, I'm in my third year down in williamsport. I've allready "played" with that GSX one night (I think their is a black one with altezzas too, I really would like to embarass him), I was going to Giant on the strip. Anyways, he seems real sure of himself, and his car didn't impress me :P I don't typically cruise in williamsport. I don't know anyone down their, and if I get the itch to go above 30mph i'm breaking the speed limit. If you ever see me on the circut at night, i'm usually walking it to watch the races. That way you get to see much more, and their is no way you can get in trouble ;).

The black talon you see in my sig is my roomated '90 awd. Its in the shops at penn college being rebuilt and worked on. If all goes well, it'll be out and about in about a month. I'm helping him work on it, but we'll have to see if it even runs LOL.

Are you going to that DSM meet thing in Ohio on July? Me and him were going to go but were not sure we may have some prior dirtbike engagements to attend at Unadilla, NY. I guess your roommate got that DSM that he wanted!! Allright later on....oh yea go to www.geocities.com/bennyhoffb for Central Eastern PA DSM club formed by B! :cool:

if you see a blueish (w/purple pearl) corrado driving around Hazelton, give him a run for your money. He's also a friend of mine back home and since it looks like you have some similar mods as myself see what you can do. He's at Penn State out there.

03-28-2002, 12:37 PM
91TSiGuy, I've seen marks car. You can cruise state college, but thats about it. If you want to have fun, altoona is the best place in your area. Its about an hour from state college, but the drive is really pretty. I'd take 45, kick back and just chill. THe cops are really bad in altoona from 8pm - midnight. But after that, they usually chill. THis friday looks messy, but if saturday is nice i'm sure their will be a big turnout. If you want, i'll meet you up their saturday, or even friday if the rain holds off. I just gotta get my car running (waiting for parts) so e-mail me if you want to meet up.


TrailorTrashTSi, probably not gonna make it to the dsm meet in july. Are you talking about the dsm shootout? I'm graduating this may, and I'll be either looking for a job, or have a job. Theirfore I don't know where i'll be in a month. I could be unemployed, or I could be in australia for all I know.

Mark, were gonna have to get together sometime again. Maybe go downtown on a nice night, park and shoot the shit. See if we can meet any other dsm'ers, watch the action, etc. BTW, how is that car of your's running? Doesen't it have like allmost 200K on it! Well, when my roomates '90 talon gets up and running, i'll give you a buzz and you can check it out etc..


Lasersharp65, I don't think we can get you in shop (my roomates car is struggling to get done!), but if you are in dire need of some DSM Tuner's (inside joke between me and my roomate LOL) look me up. I don't know anyone in the williamsport area with body parts for sale, but Mike Huml might have some, but he's in indiana pa.

Lasersharp65
03-28-2002, 03:47 PM
I see, well i just ordered my Injen intake now I think I'll look up some junkyards up north with my dad and try and find some body parts. When i did the "air can hack" i noticed my intake tube was full of black oil and shit that comes from the tubed out of the head. Does the EGR blockoff plate mod stop that? I read about how it helps fuel milage and that it stops that buildup, but if it stops it from going there, where does it go?

My girlfriend will be with me IF we ever get a meet going. She's 20.

Is the dsm day on the 27th at beaver springs still on? I haven't heard any talk of it recently, kinda looking forward to it. Any rules/regulations concerning spyders at the track? thanks.

What's up matt? I see your post right up there above mine. :P

Not sure i never heard anything about it. I have seen other convertibles run. There was a spyder down there last week but i dont know if he ran or not. Probably have to have the top up. but if its under 11.99 you have to have a roll cage.
and i believe that i am going to find a way to carlisle!

Look back about halfway through the thread, dsm only from 3-7 or something like that on the 27th, 30 bucks to run as many as you can. Wonder if I'm under 12 seconds? :D

Mike,

I would like to see the faces of those Mustang guys when the 91 Talon passes by! The only view they'll get is the rear end of the Talon.

TO all the guys going to maplegrove I'll be their sunday for the main event. I'll be in the white car in my sig. I've got a small dsmtalk.com sticker in the drivers side quarter window. Stop me if you see me.

I'm going to be hitting beaver springs for a track day with our college on april 26th. Its like $15 for 3 hours and they teach you what to do and stuff (i'm a newbie). I'd like to stop down for the dsm day, but if I do I don't think i'll run, trying to take it easy on my car because its my daily driver. I just want to see Mike Huml's talon run, and maybe I can be his laborer preparing the car if need be :D .

Well, i'm eager to run my car. However, as you know i've had a few problems latley (not related to driving hard). I just really can't afford a big mechanical failure, oh well. Hopefully the ecu will be back for this weekend so I can drive the car again.

danl: What are you doing this weekend? I went down to Altoona 2 weeks ago, (later that night when I thought I wouldn't be able to meet you) but got lost as soon as I got off the exit and came back to U. Park. I'm doin a lil work on my car Friday but I should be free that night or maybe Saturday. Gettin a Palm Pilot soon too, so if you could show me the ways of the logging system that'd be really nice. :D

91tsiguy, I'm hoping to make it to altoona tonight but everything is so tenitive. I just got my ecu back from foreigncomputerrepair.com so we'll see if the car runs now without shutting off. Also, i'm meeting two of my friends after they get back from maryland after picking up d16z6 soch vtec engine and matching transmission for my one friends crx si. If you or anyone wants to meet my email is hondadan18@hotmail.com . Saturday and sunday nights are going to be messy, so tonight it is for me. If I don't get a call from my friends or an e-mail from anyone, i'll probably be in altoona, but if I dont' meet up with someone I won't spend to long.

later,
danl

First, mike its not going to rain, don't say the "R" word! LOL

Second, as far as directions it depends on where you're coming from. You're from the state college area right? If so, and if you're taking 220, just follow that road till you literally run into altoona. Their will be signs along the whole way. Visit mapquest.com or grap a pa map if you're still not sure. I'm bad with directions.

ONce you're in altoona, we usually cruise the strip. Its about a 1.5-2 miles long. It is lined with an autozone, advanced auto, dunkin doughnuts, sheetz, BP gas station, dennys etc... Just follow the rice my son. I usually stop by Dunkin DOughnuts and grab a coffee first thing and people usually see me or I see them.

Taking I 99 is another option.

HTH, i'm not so good with directions.

Well, I found "the strip" in Altoona finally. Last time I got off of 17th street exit cause thats what mapquest told me to do to get to Altoona. Anyway, I think that strip should be renamed Rice Parade Ave. !! I was sitting at Dunkin Donuts from 9:05 -9:40 seeing if you'd show up Dan, but in the meantime I swear I saw the same cars drive by at least a 1/2 dozen times....and a few were revving at my parked car!?! HA HA.....that's definitely worth going down to again. That place makes me laugh.

Glad you found it. I was lifting a honda motor with the tranny still on it at about the time you were at DD. I got up their at 10:30ish. Mike H, his brother, and a few other guys were up their though? You must have just missed them?

04-13-2002, 08:41 AM
I did not make it down till almost 10:30. But I had a good time and was probably out till about 2:00 a.m. How come no one revs at me anymore ? Dammit all anyway :)

hey guys.. i just go some new toys for the car... supra sidemount, vr-4 fuel pump, big 16g ported and clipped... right now im ordering new injectors and an afc... im going to need some help tuning this crap.. anyone going to be around to give me some advice or something?
i ran at cecil last week with the new turbo but with stock injectors and no afc and ran a 14.2 @ 101 the 14.2 sucks but i like the 101 injectors and afc should help alot.. that was at 17psi or so
