    Back Story:
    I used to have a slow 1996 Civic. I realized how slow when I got stomped by an explorer. Friends brother was selling the Talon after he blew the origional motor when the t-belt came off. I sold my honda and bought the Talon for $2,000. It came with most of the stuff on it right now, and the new turbo (not even installed). Got a motor swap done, but the new one was origionally an automatic (car is a 5-spd now). I knew the auto injectors were smaller, so I switched them. Found out recently the cams also sucked, so they are getting replaced. I am just shooting for somewhere in the 12's on pump gas and a full interior.

    No dyno sheets yet, best 1/4 was a 14.2 with a 1.8 60'. Should be faster, methinks some of the problem is the cams.

    So thats my toy.

    Nice Ride! I don't really like the rims...probably because a friend has similar rims on her neon...but still nice ride...
