The story on this car goes back about 15 year when a buddy of mine bought this car for 600 dollars. It had the compressor wheel of the turbo removed and the turbine wheel had broken into 100 pieces and was sitting in the cat.. It was although someone had lived in the car for years (no joke) and was in rough shape..So my buddy decided to swap in a 92 6 bolt 4g63 and build it to his liking and it was daily driven until the clutch disc broke and rendered the car undriveable. It sat for about 6 years and he pulled parts off of it slowly but surely to keep his talon on the road.
I ended up buying the car earlier this year and have been SLOWLY returning it to its glory. I had to replace the transmission after not being able to get cases apart (bearing seized to input shaft) and a bunch or other odds and ends..Here it is as it sits..My end goal it to make the car 150mph capable in the 1/4 and an AWD swap possibly if I can find someone to do it for me (have donor car)..

Plans are in short term to replace all of the intercooler system and piping, upgrade to Link V3, and fix a ton of little stuff. I just started driving it around about a week or two ago very short distances. I ordered a set of new tires and will be getting it inspected soon, tuning it on the dyno then taking it to the track..
