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

Just a brief pull I did from 35-115mph.
I was bored and just made the vid for shits and giggles.
Yes I know its really shaky. Sorry my camera mount wasnt with me and
shifting/driving/recording = a pita.
1995 Eagle Talon TSi AWD project; from Beginning to current. (Not completed).
In this video I take you on a little journy though the past 5-8 months and
the work completed on my Talon. It is nowhere near done quite yet,
well...for body it is. There are still many aspects I am planning on
hitting, such as the engine..
I will be building a 2.3L stroker with a Holset HX35 turbocharger and the works.. But in time it will
happen, certainly not right away. I have yet to apply for a job, but I am
working on it. Thanks for watching.
