for sale

Price: US $1,701.00


For auction is a 1997 Eagle Talon TSI AWD Turbo 5-Speed Manual. I have put over 120 hours in the last 3 months to get this car to a daily driver. I am the 3rd owner, I purchased this from a friend (the 2nd owner) who owned this car since 2001. When this car was built the 2nd owner spared no expense (money wasn't an issue) and only used top end modifications and reputable DSM mechanics. For the last 10 years the car was not driven and stored in a climate controlled garage, as it was it's entire life. This car is clean, no accidents, clean title, no strut tower rot. The car has just over 95, 000 miles, it's the original engine and transmission. The engine mods were all done with around 80, 000 miles. The timing belt was also changed at the same time along with the cams. The APEXi is set for regular premium fuel (91/93 octane) currently and the boost is set to 17psi. On regular premium fuel it is tuned to handle up to 19psi. On race fuel it has another tune setting to push 25psi. The car also has working air conditioning and power steering. AMSOil has been run in the engine since 2001.

Known Issues
There are a couple minor dings and chips from normal use. The front bumper cover has a cut next to the wheel from road debris (See Picture). Third Gear Syncro occasionally has a VERY slight grind (It isn't to the point I would even think about fixing it yet or I would have). Obviously this is a 20+ year old car and not perfect. There is some surface rust on bolts and such, but nothing more. I just want to fully disclose all issues I am aware of. Again I have put over 120 hours into this car with plans of keeping it myself, however plans change.
If you have any questions or would like other pictures please don't hesitate to ask. Thanks for looking!
