  1. 1991 Eagle Talon - The Regal Eagle

    Build Forum
    The project kinda stalled out, the weather in October turned on us and killed my momentum. Some recent developments though: My friend and I went through and repaired a bunch of connectors on the engine wiring harness. New injector plugs, Cam Angle Sensor, Mass Airflow Sensor, TPS, Knock Sensor...

    Here's some UPS porn... Genuine (wish it didn't have to be said but Ebay has a fake version) Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Evo III 16G, approximately 42lbs/min. MHI makes some of the best turbos made as far as reliability. They aren't picky about oiling and they can take a beating. PTE turbos...

    I've just been ordering stuff and cleaning and painting parts mostly. I've got the car apart enough to tackle refurbishing the wiring harness. I've got some new and used pigtails to solder in and I'll be addressing the odd fuel pump situation. The PO had two fuel pumps, I probably mentioned...

  5. He just knew we had drugs

    General Discussion (Non-Vintage Mustang)
    Ah, OK. I misread. I don't usually speed that much on road trips. If the speed limit is 80 usually they're sticklers so I'll go 82-83. If the speed limit is 75 they're not as strict so I'll go 82-83. If it's 45, 55 or 65 I might do 4mph over. I got pulled over in Utah for going 84 in an 80...

    General Discussion (Non-Vintage Mustang)
    Lots of people get pulled over coming out of legal-pot states going into non-legal-pot states due to license plates. Surprised this was the other way. I mean five over? The cop must have been super bored. I imagine in his position of boredom I might press people a little bit and see if I could...

    If the wheel cylinders aren't visibly leaking; and the MC is functional and the lines aren't leaking it either (bleeding will show this), just drive it.

    Two basic ways to hook up a standard 4-pin relay in an application like this. 1) 30: Connect to battery with fuse 85: Connect to switch, ground other side of switch 86: Connect to 30 87: Connect to fan, ground other side of fan 2) 30: Connect to battery with fuse 85: Connect to Ground 86...

    I've been about 140 in one. They are, I believe, mathematically limited to 172MPH with the factory rev limiter and I know people have hit that before easily. These cars actually have an excellent drag coefficient, especially for the era, so they can actually get past the wind resistance. I got...
  10. Factory car performance levels... becoming too much?

    I took that to mean per 1k cars. Which isn't really a good comparison because you can sell 1000 regular cars and that's 12,000,000 miles per year, whereas 1000 special high powered cars will not be driven that much. You can't, in my opinion, compare it on the numbers of cars sold. You have to go...

    Let the work begin! After getting the car home last night I decided to get right to work. The first order of business is to remove the existing turbo setup. Of course it's one of those deals where there's three basic parts and if you look at it at first it seems like, "well you can't get the...

    Posted with permission of Israel... I got my first Eagle Talon TSi AWD in 1999. It had been my dad's but he neglected the timing belt maintenance and the belt slipped and bent some valves. I took over the payments and dropped in a 30k mile Japanese Domestic Market "Cyclone" engine and...

    General Discussion (Non-Vintage Mustang)
    Because people drive normal run of the mill cars more? Because performance cars probably get into more single car accidents? You guys who think better driver education is the answer (not that I disagree) realize that in 20-years every new car will basically drive itself, right? How do we teach...

    That's exactly how it works. I wish I could remember what my friends and I were talking about the other day but I was trying to explain that if laws or policies change, even "for the better," it's never anything to do with you and me, or helping us out, or anything we did to try and change...

    Yeah, put an 789hp Ferrari 812 driver in a 471hp Ferrari F40 and watch him wreck in five seconds.

    It's cool if you buy new, expensive cars. If you don't buy new, expensive cars then it's kinda like, the way I see it, competition for what I can afford. I always wanted a Nissan GTR. They came out in 2009 and I still can't afford one. Even if it had a salvage title. They cost almost what they...

    When a Kia can run low 13s off the showroom floor, yes, I'd say it has gone too far. But only in the sense that it used to be if you built your own hot rod, with a little work, it'd be faster than any production vehicle, whereas now it might be a little faster than a Kia unless you put big money...

    Isn't that like serving salsa made in New York City to a bunch of Texas cowboys? I spent big on parts today. More than I wanted to, it added up quick. Should have everything to detune the car to sane levels. There was a time in my life where putting a SMALLER turbo on a car wouldn't even...

    Bummer! Yeah, you even let off the gas at the wrong time around a curve, over a crest and you'll eat it even with 300hp. California hills are full of incorrectly banked turns. That's what makes them fun.

    This is my fourth AWD Talon. My friend also had a FWD Talon and an AWD Eclipse. I spent a lot of my 20s and some of my 30s wrenching on them. I remember the first time I revved my first Talon up real high and dumped the clutch. Like down to the exact cross streets and time of day. The whole car...
