1991 Eagle Talon 1/4 mile drag racing - Bristol Dragway 2010
Driving my 1991 Eagle Talon Tsi AWD turbo at the legendary Thunder Valley in Bristol, TN. I also managed to destroy the stock 3 bolt rear differential. Luckily, I was still able to drive it home! The car was on a conservative tune, as I was hoping to push it harder as the night progressed. That didn't happen!
The car is full weight w/Air Conditioning. See pictures, build stories and a list of modifications at www.turboMirage.com

Was an amazing Friday for the Turd. Went to the track to just have some fun and never planed to set any records. I did have a running bet with TJ that I would beat his 9sec CRX due to the fact that he probably could no hook up on the fresh cold track. I had totally planed on him beating the Turd so I could pay for his night of racing. Friday the 13th must be good luck since we ran our 9.6 to TJ's best of a 10.2@148. Was only $20 on the line.

The first generation Talon was released in mid-1989 as a 1990 model and ran through 1994. This era of DSM vehicles is commonly referred to as the first generation, or "1G" for short. However, there were two 1G styles. The "1GA" models of 1990-1991 featured pop-up headlights lights and a "6-bolt" engine, while the "1GB" model of 1992-1994 featured composite style headlights with integrated turn signals.
The 1993-1994 base model DL was front-wheel drive and used a 92-horsepower 1.8 L engine (4G37). The ES model (or just the base Talon before 1993) sported a naturally aspirated 2.0 L 135 hp Mitsubishi 4G63 engine. The TSi and TSi AWD models used the same engine but added an intercooled Mitsubishi 14b turbocharger producing 11.06 psi of peak Boost from the factory, resulting in 195 horsepower (145 kW) on TSi AWD models. The front-drive TSi produced only 190 due to a more restrictive Exhaust system, and the automatics produced 180 due to a 13g turbo. Regardless of trim level turbo lag is severe, however when the turbo "kicks in" the power comes on strong. A simple modification would be venting the blow off valve (stock of aftermarket) into the atmosphere which helps the turbo lag and yeilds mid 14 second quater mile times.
The "6-bolt" engine on all Talons built before April 1992 refers to the number of bolts connecting the flywheel to the crankshaft. All 1G Talons built after April 1992.5 received a freer revving "7-bolt" engine borrowed from the 1992 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution's lighter rods and 7-bolt crankshaft. These engines are considered the easiest 10 second cars to date. As seen at Racelegal.com friday night
