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
Dyno vid of my old DSM.
One of the first few to try out the now popular TO4B turbo. Alot of neigh-sayers, but this video
helped show that this budget turbo can
yeld decent power. I almost lost this video when the site went down, so
I'm backing it up here as well. Dyno graph can be found here:
