Im just gonna copy and past what I had on ebay...

The car is originally from Texas, so it has never seen any snow. I bought it off a guy who was in the military up here in Maine two years ago. He was the second owner, the first was a college girl in Texas. It has VERY LOW MILES for the year at 76,000. The car has never been smoked in, leaving the interior very clean and free of any burns. The leather seats are in great shape with no tears or rips. All the electronics function as they should. The carpet is not perfect, it does have a few stains that I am sure is normal for a car of this age.

This car is NOT stock!!! The following is a hefty list of what as been done up to this point:

Engine Mods and Associated Costs

- Better 6 Bolt Block - $400

- 2.3 L Stroker Motor - $1500 (Labor)

- Eagle Rods - $360

- Wiseco Pistons - $450

- ARP Head Studs and Rod Bolts - $140

- Balanced 4G64 Crank - $300

- Metal Head Gasket - $60

- Rebuilt 7-bolt Head, With Stock Valves - $400

- Balance-Shaft Eliminator Kit - $40

- Mut 20G Turbo - $600

- K&N Intake System - $80

- 880cc Inectors - $350

- Aeromotive FPR - $200

- Walbro 255 Fuel Pump - $100

- Manual Boost Controller - $20

- 1G BOV - $FREE

- Fluidyne Radiator - $350

- HUGE Slowboy Front Mount I/C - $1000

Drivetrain/Exhaust Mods

- Slowboy LSD - $200

- ACT 2600 Clutch - $400

- Fidanza Flywheel - $300

- 2.5" to 3" Turbo-Back with "Race Cat" - ~$400

Electronic Mods

- Autometer Boost and A/F guages - $100

- HKS Turbo Timer - $100

- DSMLink With Socketed ECU - $700

I think that MIGHT be it as far as the mods go. All that, which does NOT include installation tallies to $8150! The motor is fairly fresh with about 8,000 miles on it and was built by a local guy who builds up race cars for a local track. He gave me a 10,000 mile/1 year warranty with it, which is still intact. Ontop of all the performance mods listed above, there are also alot of new stock parts installed: Brand new battery, new starter, new alternator, timing belt, slave, spark plugs and wires, thermostat, windshield - (roughly another $500 spent).

If you look at the pictures, the car has hood pins installed, which are obviously another performance mod. But it also serves for safety...when we installed the front mount, we somehow broke the safety latch in the process. The Talon does have a few MINOR issues, which I would like to fix before the sale. It has an exhaust leak where the manifold meets the head, my dumb a## somehow stripped one of the bolts. It also hasnt yet seen a dyno, and is in desperate need of doing so, to get the most possible power. It has a small boost leak right now because there is no gasket with the BOV, so it doesn't like to see above 15 lbs of boost. The A/C also needs to be recharged, and I will include the kit to do so. Again, these issues (except the dyno and A/C) will be fixed before the sale of the car. The car is also fairly dirty in the pictures, it would be cleaned inside and out.

As a final few words... I would not buy this car if you dont have any knowledge of DSM's and tuning, they are very complicated and touchy. I take very good care of my cars. The Talon has never been to a track and beat on. The car comes with the 16" wheels and tires its pictured with as well as the stock rims and tires. Happy Bidding! If you have any questions, please e-mail me @ [email protected].

As far as trading goes, I would want something in the range of like $2000. Just a car to get me around with, like an older Honda or older non-turbo dsm.

Asking price is $7000 firm

Will aslo include a Dell Inspiron 4150 laptop for an additional $400 to help tune with DSMLink V2. Its more of a mobile laptop in thats its not so big and thick, so it works and fits well in the car. Some of the lower left buttons are a little sticky due to a mishap, but its not really to noticeble, because im typing with it right now. Its got pentium 4, and a cd burner.

Does the car currently run?
Is it currently titled and registered?
Has there been any tuning or any dyno runs yet?
How much rwhp was this combo designed to output?

thanks

mishap = porn. I hate it when that happens!

Did you change the global settings in DSMLink for the injectors?

The car currently runs like a champ with the exception of what I noted above; the exhaust leak and boost leak.

It is currently titled and registered and stickered.

Only base tuning has been done, she has a lot more potential and has not yet seen a dyno because i ran out of funds. No real goal was set in terms of HP. I just wanted a "reliable" Talon with some throw you back in your seat power.

I am amused with this question...Sounds like a previous V8 owner ;)
I guess I have been outed. I have owned several V8's.

But I am not sure how you were able to figure that out. :D

maybe it looks like a 7bolt because it has just the 6-bolt block and 7-bolt head ;)
