Someone else had the same question about a month ago. I think the decision was the talon was underbuilt (weak tranny...). I think if it is a 95+ go for it, I love the look of those cars

Who knows... I think we need more info.

DSM's don't have the best reliability records, but it also depends on which car/model it is too, and the year.

To really say, we need more info about the Talon. Is your Fiero dying on you?

Yeah, Talons can be good, but with used cars the conditionis as important as brand reputation... maybe more so.

More details, and maybe we can help

Nope, you won't have a chance unless your friend doesn't know how to drive. If you had a 6 it would be a different story. We had a 91 Laser non-turbo doing 14.5 at the track with only free mods and some weight lightening. The engine is actually quite reliable, it's the timing belt and balance shaft belt that isn't. The tranny on the NT can take a beating, it's built as strong as the turbo model but it paired up to an engine putting out 60 less hp.

I dont know about 14.5 on a stock talon non turbo. Its been my experiance that the turbos are awesome but the non turbos are dog slow and not very fun to drive. BTW what kind of free mods can take a second or more of a cars ET??

someone wanted me to do their car. And its not like shopclass where the engine is out of the car.

I'm talking about the 4G63 2.0L Mitsubishi motor, not the 1.8 that some of them came with.


Balance shaft removal, underdrive pulley, manual steering, removed A/C, lightweight wheels. Then we removed a load of weight off the car. Ran consistant times between 14.6-14.9

Right on with the engines. The stock 1.8 had under 100 HP. A 2m4 had similar power, but a lot more torque and should be able to take it. The 2.0 N/A was around 130 or so. That should be enough to take a 2m4 in an early 90's Talon.

That kind of milage sounds like a fair amount, but if its taken care if it should be ok. The 2.0 probably would hold up better than the 1.8 too, since the smaller motor would have to work harder.
