This is my 4th DSM and the one I have owned the longest at this point. Bought the car in 2000 and swapped a few of my old left over mods onto the car right away. I modded it to it's current point between 2000 and about 03/04. I set some goals out for the car early on and once I hit those goals I called the car done and just drive it and enjoy it. It is now my daily driver again as I work on a new project.
The car uses a pretty basic setup and I tried to improve all aspects of the car evenly over the years. I have addressed braking, suspension, power, and exterior.
Quick mods list on the car;
-2G head with 1mm oversized valves
-HKS 272 I/E Cams
-3" turboback exhaust with a Thermal muffler
-tubular FP O2 housing with a Tial 40mm wastegate bolted to it

-IPO Propane injection kit
-Greddy Type S BOV
-Denso 660cc injectors
-Walbro 255lph pump (hardwired)
-ACT 2600# kit. This clutch has held up incredibly. It has close to 50k on it and still holds great.
-Exteme short shift kit
-home made shifter bushings
-TCE Wilwood front brake setup. 12.5" rotors with Wilwood BSL6 6 piston calipers
-SS brake lines

That's about it. I set out to break 120 on pump gas, make 400 at the wheels and still remain quiet, comfortable, and squeak free. Mission accomplished. The car is dead reliable, has an ok stereo, is not overly harsh and is a pleasure to drive to work everyday.
Unfortunately my old image host crashed and I suffered a HD failure so I only have 2 pictures of my talon. Kinda sad as I had probably 50 at one point.
