    Hoon's 600+hp 2.0L Talon

    Sold this car right after i bought the cruze. I just didn't have the time or money to keep throwing at it. During most of its life i ran 27-31psi on nothing but 93 octane, making about 450awhp, which is enough to rape a lot of street cars in a 2800lb AWD chassis.

    I added a meth setup but had issues with the MAF when tuning for it, was sick of the car and sold it. New owner fixed a few basic things and had it retuned on speed density with the meth, made a best of 503awhp on a low reading mustang dyno...about 540 at the tires on a typical dynojet. Big numbers for a small 52lb/min turbo.

    If you correct for drivetrain loss it's about 630hp @ 8400rpm. No traction in 1st or 2nd on street tires even with AWD.

    I really want to build another car but i don't make anywhere near the $$ i used to, and as i get older (mid 20s now) i have to save for things like a house, investments, etc. When i can afford to, the next build won't make less than 800whp, either a BMW or an LSx vehicle. Turbo of course.

    I like that you kept it looking stock too...no one would ever suspect it!

    I love hearing that power spool up with a big turbo. Good god the lag is annoying, but it's REAL fun when the power comes in hard.

    I always wanted to buy a junker 850 and do this to it. Preferrably an AWD R, but eh.

    My dream has been to swap an LSX with a turbo or two into a Volvo 740 wagon. Not sure why. I just love those cars.

    370 TQ at the wheels. This setup was built to rev, not to make torque. it had massive cams, I have a heavily ported head, and a sheet metal intake manifold.

    it went to the track once with a clutch that wouldn't disengage so it was impossible to shift it. Low 12s at 122. With slicks and a clutch should be upper 10s at 130ish.

    The Laser, Talon and Eclipse's were really nice. I had a friend with '98 GSX AWD that absolutely murdered anything on the street (back in the day that it is).

    As with any turbo car, it doesn't cost a lot to yield a huge gain.

    Holy crap...THE SPEED!

    What else did you have to do to the driveline besides a clutch (transmission, axles, AWD coupling, etc) to hold that power? Or were they built that strong?

    Even to this day i believe the 1G to be arguably the best affordable platform for street racing. Evos and STIs are a joke by comparison. The only modern AWD that comes close is the GT-R or turbo Lambos. Slicks, automatic with the right converter, huge turbo, nitrous. 8 second street car.

    I had a good amount of money into mine. $5K motor, $5K turbo system, then add all the supporting mods...but that's what it takes to make the power with decent reliability.

    Sick Talon Hoon. I'm a huge fan of the 2nd gens myself (95-99 eclipses, 95-98 talons). AWD GSX & TSi, of course.

    Those DSMs can certainly pack a punch. It's too bad those are so scarce around me anymore. If I could find a nice clean 98 GSX, I'd buy it in a heartbeat..
