Got this as just a shell:

Body is uber straight, great paint on it, no big dings.. chassis has only 109k on it.
Don't mind the red wheels.. they're not perminent :P

As for this car, I'm debating on what to do.
Options:
2.0 motor w/ 3065 or FP3582HTA
2.4 motor w/ 3065 or FP3582HTA
or.. possibly...
3000gt vr4 motor.

I had a 3000gt, but it got wrecked beyond repair. Motor/ tranny is still good, so I have been looking for a new shell. Not as easy to come by as dsm shells. So I did the measurements, and decided if I can't find a shell in the next year, I'm going to fab up mounting brackets, etc and fit that in this Talon.

But for this car, I want some black wheels with a pink lip. I love pink/ silver together. I'm putting my black leather seats in here. I already have a few mods done:
Walbro 255, 4 bolt rear end.. and whatever engine I put it decides the rest.

It looks in very decent shape. I would have to say stick with either the 2.0, 2.3 or 2.4. There are so many cons in such a custom job like a vr4 swap unless you want to be different. But from a performance aspect, it's not a good idea. Sell the vr4 engine and tranny and put it towards MODS!

What year is it 90 or 91?

What year is it 90 or 91? I'd rather not do a 2.3. I have Eagle rods and forged pistons already in the block of the 2.4 and of the 2.0. So both of those are ready to go.
However, whatever car does get the 2.4, I would like to put a forged crank in there just to ensure no crankwalk :)

I just think it would be really awesome to have a v6 twin turbo 6spd dsm. We have a full CNC machine shop available for any custom work. It would be alot of work, but it would be cool. However, I would so much rather get a 3000gt to put it back into. Wonderful car!

All 3 are all 91s :)

Wow... You are one of the most interesting girls I have ever met. lol... 3 project 1g's and you do custom fab work on them... Please never leave us. lol :p

Most people come in here asking about swapping motors and such with no idea what kind of work is involved. You, on the other hand, seem to know exactly what you are getting into with it. I think if you were able to swap the 3kgt motor into it with the 6 speed then it would be sweet. However, I don't think the tranny/motor combo will actually fit under the cross member. Have you actually done all those measurements too?

I suppose anything is possible after I saw the one guy come in here with an Evo motor swap into a n/t 2g...

Oh yeah, must be nice to have a full CNC at your disposal. :(

kittay

The CNC is actually at Brendan's work, but we have full access to it, which is sweet :)

We would have to make our own crossmember since it's in the way of the turbo and downpipe. Would be alot of fab work, and alot of work let alone. I'm still debating on getting into such a huge project.

I would like to do a 2.0 with 3065 since it spools so wonderfully, or put the 3065 with the 2.4 and that would be an amazing street machine.
But I'd also really like to get my hands on FP's version of the gt35r. But if I do do that, since it's a larger turbo, Idk which motor I'd put it on. *sigh* Too many ideas :p

Once I wear out this 18g and am ready to upgrade I am going with the 3065 also. It is indeed a nicely matched turbo for these motors.

kittay

I have the e316g on my dd, and when driving my friends car with the 3065, the spool time was almost the same. I was very impressed with how quickly it spooled up. I just can't get over how amazing it would be on the 2.4. But I'm sure I'd get tired of that quickly and want to go bigger. I just hate the lag. Brendan's Laser has a 60-1 or T67 (working on identifying it, looks like the 60-1 and was told that is what it is, but the compresser wheel is larger), and I hate the lag. It is very frustrating trying to drive around town and waiting for it to spool up. I know when the cars run, I'll want to trade off and drive them all.

Anyone seen the FP's 35r?

lol.. thanks :)

I've been searching for a 91 Laser that's silver, so I can have one of each dsm in silver.. lol

So I decided since this shell has only 100k on the chassis, I'm putting the 2.4L w/ the FP3582HTA. Since it's not a good idea to put alot of miles on the 2.4 motor, I can also keep the miles low on the body :D
Ordering some Corbeau Forza seats (microsuede of course)

Not to mention matching rims.. black spoke with a pink lip.. and a VC.. pink with black flakes :D keke..

I figured pink doesn't go too well with purple, so I can do all the pink with silver :)

That car will deffinately stand out.

There is a pink 1gen rolling around SC. Some girl drives it. Hers looks like shit though. I think its a 1.8

I saw pics of 2 different pink 1gs. One had purple graphics and custom pink and purple leather.... eww.. I hate pink and purple together..

The other was a pastel almost rattle can looking pink. One of the 3000gt guys used to own it. He sent me pics:

A guy I use to know had a pink 3kgt. The paint had an ass of pearl in it so it actually looked pretty good.

I dont think the kit looks to bad. I usually dont like them but this one doesn't make it look bad. These people did more for looks than performance. One of the guys did have a 500hp EVO that was pretty sweet though.

The front bumper reminds me of a barbie plastic car :P
But I def like the black top on it. Black + silver + pink = secks

Nice 3kgt. Its pretty cool. I hope its not a VR4 though.

No, I'm a big fan of 3KGT vr4's...they're awesome. I just feel that it is a crime to mod such a rare car... IMO if you want to make a show car out of a 3KGT, then use a base 3k or a SL. There are just some cars that I prefer not to mod...like a vr4, turbo supra, turbo rx7, ect.

So I got an electric cutout exhaust.. Most likely will be going on this!

With selling the 3000, I'm prolly going to get a bit of a head start on this.. Get the block work started on.. I would really love to see this run!

Both. That'll definitely be the first set of Hoosier slicks mounted on Slipstreams with a pink lip that I've ever seen.

Why don't you go all the way and paint the talon pink? A big ass drawing of hello kitty on the hood would be BAMF.
