Here's my Talon (1997 Tsi AWD). I got her in July 2002. She's my daily driver and also my race car for drag and auto-x (I have a lot to work on for ... Show morethe racing part though) I only have basic mods now, but I have a lot more planned. It will just take a while for me to get everything.
1/22/04~ I got to buy a few goodies after christmas that have yet to be installed because of the stupid cold weather which include the 17c turbo, FPR and AFC (all installed) and then the FMIC, injectors, and fuel pump which still need to be installed.
3/16/04~ Finally got all my parts installed that I had sitting in my garage. I can finally turn up the boost now, Woo!
6/20/04~ Clutch was installed last week. ACT 2600..still in the break-in period right now. Hopefully will have a new time slip within the next two weeks :-D
9/25/2005~ I was going to sell the Talon...She had a few problems that had me wanting to give up (those have been fixed..nothing really major anyway) I had her up for sale for a few weeks...Then, after a lot of thought, I've decided to keep her and just build her up. I have some plans, so hopefully within a few months I will have some new mods to add.
