In this episode, we take my 1991 Eagle Talon AWD turbo to Knoxville Dragstrip to do some shakedown
runs with the new turbo setup.
Knoxville Dragstrip is 890 feet above sea level. The air temperature
during these runs was 65 degrees and the Density Altitude was 1,814 feet
above sea level. For all three runs the Boost was set at 27 psi and a 50/50 mix of 93
octane pump gas and 110 octane race gas was used. The car's race weight
was approximately 3,390 pounds with driver.
The best time/MPH of the night was:
60 ft: 2.091

AWD Colt Crossmember
Audio by RojoDelChocolate
If my car wasn't destined to be All Wheel Drive, then I wouldn't have
needed to do any of this. For a FWD setup, I'd just mix and match engine
mounts from different models and it's a bolt-on affair.
But I can't.
I've got a transfer case in the way and I had to work around it. I wanted
one that closely resembled a factory part, and the factory part is roughly
1 7/8" stamped sheet metal in the shape of square tubing. Utilizing as much
of the original crossmember as I could, and thanks to these chassis being
sold in Japan and New Zealand, provisions are already on the chassis for an
AWD crossmember, so it's not as difficult to fabricate as it could have
been. I just can't get that crossmember in the United States... so I used
as much of the OE crossmember as I could and then filled in the gaps. What
I ended up with was the best thing I could envision.
I had no idea where this project would take me and everybody does things a
little differently. I haven't seen how EVERYbody does this part of the
job... though I've seen a few different methods online. Some were very
simple and effective, making really good use of weight. Some were
difficult to install. Some other designs seemed intrusive and took up a
lot of room in the engine bay. Room that I would want to use for other
things; however, almost ALL of the configurations were lighter than what I
I think mine's the most serviceable. I found I can install and remove both
pieces in any order which will have its conveniences later when I'm working
on it... and it's stronger than the factory equivalent while maintaining
the exact same function.
This part of the build was one of the biggest roadblocks to the Colt's
construction in my mind because it was a total unknown. If you're doing
this and you have this problem, just keep going back and forth from the
bench to the car for a test fit until you get it right. If you'd rather
buy one, don't ask me, I don't manufacture them. BUT, there is someone in
the 4g61t forums who will do it for you for a price, and he does
outstanding work from what I've seen. I'm disappointed that tape 5 was
lost because it illustrated the benefit of the cutouts. Tucking the
crossmember into the groove and maintaining at least a half-inch clearance
lets you raise it another inch and a half higher which helps GROUND
CLEARANCE. I've got the front pretty low on 16" steelies with a 3 1/2"
drop. It's about 1/8" lower than the oil pan, so it will be fine. I had
no idea what I needed to make before taking on this job (that's why it took
so long). That means what you're watching is me working on the plane while
I'm flying it. Not everyone would do it my way. I exceeded my own dang
expectations. In my opinion, I don't think it could have turned out any
That's my story and I'm stickin' to it. I keep killing electronic hardware
left and right. The crankwalk video took out my fileserver. Let's hope
this isn't the start of a trend.
