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.
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
was filmed in Pittsburgh, PA on a GoPro Hero 3 Black Edition on 1080p
1995 Eagle Talon TSi AWD
Some vids of my Eagle Talon in its stock form before I mod it out. I
removed the stock airbox and installed a K&N kit. I decide to remove the
useless backseat and replaced the factory 6" speakers while I was at it. I
have fun with this car and just wanted to document what it looks now
because things are about to change.
My "new" 1995 Eagle Talon (intro)
Just a brief intro to my 1995 Eagle Talon that I bought for $600.00 USD.
When I bought it it had a major idle issue. It wouldn't stay running unless
you kept your foot on the accelerator either in park or in gear. It was
really bad in gear. (I know I said that I kept my foot on the brake in the
video ... LOL)
I have no plans of turning this into a race car or tuner. I want to keep it
as stock as possible. Maybe some performance mods, but I really doubt it.
Since buying it, I've replaced the IAC (Idle Air Control valve), the CPS
(Cam Position Sensor), the TPS (Throttle Position Sensor) and the MAP
(Manifold Absolute Pressure sensor).
It's running a lot better, but still has an idle issue.
Doing the CEL (Check Engine Light) code retrieval, it comes up with a code
11. This references the Crankshaft Position Sensor. It could be a bad unit
or, since the timing belt, water pump and radiator were replaced before I
got it, the timing belt could have jumped one tooth or more.
I haven't gotten around to checking that yet. Hope I don't have to. LOL
But I will be documenting each service or repair that I do as I work on it.
I hope to be able to share what knowledge I have of this vehicle, albeit
limited for now, to maybe help others who might be running into the same
problems or scenarios.
Let me know what y'all think.
Thanks for watching. Leave a comment, suggestion or idea.
Eagle Talon TSi AWD Tribute
I have owned this 1995 Eagle Talon TSi AWD not even a year, this is just a
short of some of the work and love I have put into it to bring her back to
life :) enjoy!!
MONSTER TURBO 1200hp 1G Eagle Talon
One of the craziest AWD builds we've seen yet showed up at Street Car
Takeover OKC and put on a show! Making it all the way to the finals, even
while down on power, Darren Thomas made some badass passes in this 1G DESM,
as deep as the 5.60's range in the 1/8 and the car typically is in the 5.40
E/T's. This car is no joke!
We hope to see it back out again once the car is all sorted out!
