    im mainly a domestic guy...but this time i wanted a more reliable car so i finally did something i said id never do and bought and import, i got an 03 g35 sedan. But i live where it isnt exactly rwd car weather year round. So i bought my friends 95 talon n/a 4cy 5spd which was wrecked, welded a new front froma donor onto it and am going to be driving that when cold weather hits. Ill be blunt i dont know shit about imports it has the 2.0 in it. What can be done for under say 1000 for it for the best performance out of it while retaining good mileage?

    Not sure Talon and reliable belong in the same page, much less sentance. heh, best of luck though. The G35 should treat you nicely.

    yeah that car comes with the DOHC 2.0l motor from the dodge neon, so most mods that work on the neon willl work on that engine. It's actually not that unreliable since it is just a normally aspirated, 140hp 4 cylinder.

    your best bet is to look at the non-turbo sections of DSM forums liek DSMtalk.com and DSMtuners.com, as well as dodge neon forums

    Yeah a nitrous kit is probably your best bet, otherwise find out about which bolt-ons make the most power. probably something typical, like cold air intake, cams, exhaust

    but that shits gonna make the car louder, and people will think youre just a ricer. cuz even with $1000 in mods you'd be lucky to break into the lower 15s

    Seriously, you can't do anything to that N/A talon. Sell it and get a first gen eclipse awd turbo. It will be roughly the same price you can get for that N/A. You can run 12's for under a grand with the Awd talon.
