    2G Virgin Mary- 95 Talon TSI AWD

    Post by AJracer33a

    This is Mary. My 1995 Eagle Talon TSI AWD. I bought her at the beginning of 2014 and she was 100% stock. Originally, the plan was to paint it white and black like my old Panda 2g. But obviously it didn't take long for this blue to grow on me. With a color so beautiful and so rare, I couldn't paint over that. 


    I named her Mary as in "Virgin Mary" since she was completely stock. I bought it off of an older gentlemen who has mentioned a few times to a few people that he would like to sell it. Word got back to me and I went and picked her up. 


    When I first got her, I did all the things I usually do when I get a new dsm. Change all the timing belt components, maintenance, and delete everything I don't need. AC, emissions, AC, PS, etc. Took out quite a bit of weight and made it a lot easier to work on. 


    I took the car to the track before doing anything to it. I ran low 15s launching softly off the line. I have since done a lot to the car.


    I went down to Norberts at dsmpartout.com and picked up several goodies. On the way home, I stopped at Rob Figs at Forced Induction Guys Inc. I planned a weekend and started turning wrenches. I installed a Greddy FMIC with piping, Greddy BOV, T28 Killer turbo, and a few odds and ends. I ran the car for awhile un-tuned. I ran 15psi on the T28 Killer and it was spike to 15psi as I run open downpipe. 


    A T28 Killer is an old school turbo that nobody makes anymore. It is a T28 with a stage 2 turbine wheel and a 16G compressor wheel. I actually have a 20G compressor wheel. Needless to say, it flows a good amount of air. After awhile of running it un-tuned at 15-18psi, I melted a piston ring. 


    I ended up buying a new block, doing an OEM rebuild in my living room, and swapping the engines within just 7 days. Running and on the road in 8 days. Made pretty good time. After the engine swap, I kept the boost down and currently still do. Right around 9-10psi. 


    A month or so later, I broke my transmission. So once again, back to dsmpartout and FIGS. New transmission, ABS delete with SS braided lines, aluminum radiator, and a lot of other things.


    Once winter hit, I haven't done a whole lot. As of December 30th 2014, I have installed some, wheel spacers that were on a buddies Evo 8. I fell in love with them. Car looks great and handles a lot better. Absolutely no roll in the corners.
