My New Ride!

Over the last 2 years or so I've owned a 1994 Eagle Talon. This car gave me something to do in the little amount of free time I had and always rewarded me with horsepower, but always penalized my checkbook. After spending countless hours on it, I have to sell it. Why? Because I'm sick of it? Absolutly not. In fact, I will cry whenever it drives out of my driveway for the last time....but only for a bit, because I have something parked in the other stall of my garage now that will fill its void: my shiny black 1997 Mitsubishi Eclipse GSX. Same 4G63T motor, same AWD, more bling, and lots of potential.

It came with a 6-bolt (the tough ones!) motor out of a 1992 with about 50k miles on it (the donor car actually got totaled by a drunk driver who drove THROUGH some's garage!), an upgraded (but still stockish) 16g turbo, Toyota Supra sidemount intercooler, full exhaust, etc. I basically couldn't wait to throw down and tear into this car, so only FOUR days after I bought it, I installed a Buschur Racing FMIC kit w/ a Tial BOV and a MAF-T with a 3" GM MAS. I have a big turbo sitting in my house ready to bolt in in a few weeks, but I told myself I'd wait until I sold my new car to go nuts on the new one. Anyways, have a looksee:
