I have had this heap since November of 1995, it was my second car. It has out lasted many girlfriends, got me through high school and college and traveled the east coast. Here is is 2 weeks after I got it, fresh with tint and "TALON" script in the windshield.


I have been toying with it for years, mostly with the suspension and cosmetic details.



Suspension/Wheel/Brake Mods:
DSS Coilovers
KYB Struts/Shocks
Suspension Techniques Rear Sway Bar
Greddy Front Strut Bar
RRE Rear Strut Bar
Koni Bumpstops
Ingalls Front Camber Kit
Prothane Suspension and Subframe Bushing
Dunlop SP Sport 8000 225/50ZR16 Tires
Kosei Laufer 6 16*7 Wheels
AWD Big Brakes
Power Slot Rotors all round
Metal Master Pads all round
RRE Stainless Steel Lines
Motul Fluid



Engine Mods
Injen Air Intake w/ Dryer Hose Ducting
Archer/Borla 4 into 1 header
2.5" Cat
2.5" Catback w/ DynoMax Ultraflow Muffler
JM Fabrications Catch Can
NGK Plugs and Wires
Ground Kit


Interior/Exterior Mods
Dark Side Racing Carbon Fiber Hood
Blackened Headlight, 3rd Brake Light, Sidemarkers, Repeaters
TOTalon Front Lip
Sylvania Silverstar in Headlight and Pilot Foglights
No Decals
GTS Solar Wing
Window Tint
Gloss Black Valve Cover w/ Polished Letters
Momo Grand Prix Pedals
Blue Reverse Indiglow Gauges
Import Intelligence Red LED Needles
Blue LED HVAC controls and randomn interior switches
Greddy Counter Weight Shift Knob
Symborski Shifter Bushing
JNZ Short Shifter
Redline Goods Leather Shifter Boot & E-Brake Boot
Grant Steering Wheel w/ Eagle Logo
Repadded 91 GSX Black/White Houndstooth Seat
Corbeau Harness Slots in Driver Seat
Corbeau 3 point double release harness




On the way to the Shootout 2004, it had a "catastrophic" engine failure at 126,000 miles. Back to the drawing board!
So at that point I decided to get real with modding it and start throwing money away, I mean at it.:wall:




Now that the car is eleventy billion pieces it is in what I like to call a reloading mode.
With the help of Jackson Auto Machine, JNZ Tuning, JM Fabrications and Philadelphia DSM this Eagle will fly again. It will be a weekend toy and most likely enter road races for shits and giggles. It may not be the obvious route, but it will be an interesting one.

Custom built JNZ Tuning tranmission
90 6 bolt
Venolia Pistons: 13.5:1 Compression
Eagle Rods
Stroker Conversion
Revised Fuel System
Maybe a 75 shot
No A/C or Power Steering
Wider Wheels and Tires
TCE Front Brakes
etc...........stay tuned
:banana:

OK so you are building a High Compression NA 4g63? if so that is fucking cool. I would really like to know how things work out.

It won't be the fastest thing, but it should have a nice solid smooth power delivery which will be great for autox. If he keeps the weight down it could easily run 14's if not faster.

I was lucky enough to be in the passenger's seat during the cars swan song in 04. :D

Good news is that Paul's car has made some real progress lately and should be ready for spring.
Care to follow me around Pocono June 3rd Paul? :D
