TX yay!

Something about it having TX plates makes it 100X cooler and scary.

Very nice, I miss my old vette sometimes, so much tq. Maybe it's just the lighting, but is that satin? Good looking panda.

Re: The Talon is gone.

This winter-
HP Tuners
Ported 243 Heads with 202 160
Cam
Port Intake and TB
Long Tubes
Z51 Springs
Already has intake
Already has Corsa
Maybe E85 if I decide to spray it.
Double Din Navigation

I did drive it Sunday and yesterday and it is hard to explain the feeling it has. It drives like my wife's G6 then you start to push it and it feels like a fricken race car compared to the DSM. At first I didn't enjoy that but it's comfort is definitely growing on me. I do miss the power the old turbo car had but, I'm sure that can be fixed..

Re: The Talon is gone.

Sounds like you already know what you're doing!

Ever think of going forced induction? Spray is pretty addicting and if you use it a lot filling bottles all the time starts adding up

Re: The Talon is gone.

He has considered it, but he doesn't do a lot of racing to worry about filling bottles but he does a lot of cruise which means NA power would be perfect for just getting in and not worrying about a thing.

Re: The Talon is gone.

Basically what Aaron said. I like going out on back roads and beating up on corners (Not 1g friendly). If I get board with NA power it will see boost after a LQ4/6 build.

^Won't happen.
NA build plus 200 shot will be perfect.
