The Story of my Talon Tsi
I purchased a 95 eagle talon tsi awd in the summer of 2009 after graduating
High school. I did some minor modifications, bigger injectors, 14b turbo, 20lbs of Boost, safc tuning, pulled like a sombish.
Then disaster struck, I threw a rod out my stock block. So 6 bolt swap time
it is. Kept every thing stock for a stock rebuild. My intentions are cheap
and reliable. Cleaned all engine components, new wiseco rings, honed block,
cometic hg, arp headstuds, oem 6 bolt pistons and rods. Gonna be running
14b for the break in period then ill slap the 18g on and get a tune.

1995 Eagle Talon TSI AWD Head Removal
Here is another time lapse vid showing me removing the 7 bolt head from my
6 bolt engine in my 1995 Eagle Talon TSI AWD. I had to remove it this time
because of a bent valve. I worked in the comfort of my garage this time
instead of the driveway because it was probably 10° or 20° outside.
The video does cut before i get the head off, and that is only because I
was tired of changing batteries and SD cards in the camera. If you don't
beleive I got the head off, just watch my previous head removal vid.
6 bolt 4g63 in 2g Eclipse GSX cylinder head removed in under 10 mins
Removing the head of a 4G63 in 10x speed.
The project got delayed a few months. After finishing it and cranking it
over, Interference in the cylinder was discovered. Shamefully, I admit my
mistakes were: 1) Not putting the spark plugs in immediately after
installing the head. 2) The bad habit of using my Valve Cover as a parts
tray and 3) Putting off the project too long, so I didn't recognize a
missing bolt from a custom fabrication.
The head needed new valve seats, valves and some welding. Wiseco and the
machinist both thought I'd be OK running the piston after smoothing out hot
spots, but I ordered a new piston not wanting to risk the deep gouge in it
with the high Boost I plan to run.
Peace of mind is priceless.
The danger in being over confident is sometimes you skip triple checking
stuff. I've built that engine at least 5 times and got careless.

1997 Eagle Talon TSI AWD 16G Turbo 23 PSI Driving on the highway
My friend and I going for a drive in his 1997 AWD Eagle Talon with a turbo. He's running about 23 lbs of Boost making around 350+ WHP. You can hear
the waste gate open as he gets into the Boost. This engine was completely rebuilt by
the privious owner. Rear seats have been removed, as well as some of the
carpeting. A strut brace is where the seats once were. This car also
features Sparco bucket seats but no race harness :(. Exterior, mostly stock
except for a carbon fiber hood and matte black painted factory wheels. This

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
(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
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
