HI im 15 almost 16 and trying to discide on a car.I need something around 3000 $ Something that i can customize and look cool in.But im not just lookin for looks i want speed as well.Ive drove a 93 v6 talon/eclipse and was really fast but not still sure what to get.It really be cool to have a rwd car but not nessary.Remember this will be my first car i dosent have to be too fast. :thumbs:
OHHH yeah i have also been looking at a ford probe gt(v6) :doh: will this
beat a civic or an eclipse?
But one prob with these cars they are all fwd i want a rwd to learn how to drift.
You drove a V6 Talon? Do you have pictures because I wanna see this.
yeah i have and it was only a cuple of times. Why would i take pics??Do you think i havent? Its not a big deal!!!! :fu: By the way it was not mine it was my uncle's
The reason I ask for pictures is because there is no such thing as a V6 Talon. ALL talons came from the factory with I4's. So if you drove a V6 Talon, I'd like to see pictures of it and the engine in it. I've never seen a v6 talon swap.. quite frankly I don't know why anyone would do it, but if you say you drove one I'd like to see it.
your 15 and you want a cool car? i suggest you stick to matchboxs and
hotwheels for a while.i highly dought your gonna be able to get a car
looks the part for $3000! i am also intrigued to see this V6 Talon.
P.S will this be faster than a eclipse or a civic???
a civic what ??? Type R , SIR II ?????? or a DX? if your talking about a Type R i seriously would dought it.
Buy some 1990 Toyota corolla, soup it up.
Ughh... Who said anything about a Supra RZ? Is it me or do you get more
stupid everday I see you open your mouth and "attempt" to create a reply.
There are many cars that are under $3k that are in fairly good condition.
Maybe you should stay in Europe or wherever the hell you're from and leave
American car consumer questions to Americans ok "Mayte"?
A FordProbe(V6) would most likley beat any kind of stock civic or fwd Eclipse in a drag race, wich is what I'm going assume you mean by "beat". However, I doubt the Probe would hold its own against an AWD Eclipse or Talon...
So if you were looking in that category I would try and find a V6 Probe, Talon TSi, or Eclipse GSX.
sorry cant send pics he sold it because of overheating problem.I usure it was a v6 talon is the exact same as an eclipse!!!!!!! DSM-dimond star motors :banghead: By the way its possible the previous owner swaped it but i doubt it.
Or it is possible that you and your uncle don't know jack shit about cars, assumed it was V6, and have been calling it that ever sense. Yeah, my vote goes to that one.
I may not know as much as you about cars,but i know a fair amount about
them.I have been studying them since i was about six.I asure it was a 6
cylinder and im not a dumbass and im asking you to stop bieng an ass and
accept it.Its not a big deal!!! :cussing: All i ask is that you be sure of
something before you attack someone with your ignorance :fu:
By the way no hard feelings and lets just forget about the whole thing. :mrgreen:
You see, you were at a privaledged position to actually get valuble
information. But since you crossed the line from ignorant minor to dumbass
minor you have to suffer consequences. First and foremost, I don't give a
rats ass what you've been studying for however long you've been studying.
You're 15 you've never owned a car, you don't even have a license, and I
doubt you've worked on enough cars. So don't tell me that you know what
you're talking about because you obviously dont.
I have'nt owned 2 DSM's and worked on so many I lost count to have some little adolescent prick like you tell me otherwise. If the car was a stock Talon, it has a 4cylinder engine in it. Point. Period. You claim it was stock so it has an I4. Point. Plain. Simple. If indeed it has a V6 in it, wich I HIGHLY doubt, then it was no longer stock from the point that V6 was put into it.
THINK, TYPE, SUBMIT.
Okay,your right im sure you know alot more than me like i said.!! Im just
saying it did have a v6 in it and there is no since of argueing about it
sorry for calling you an ass and questioning your knowledge. :ticking: Your
right i am 15 and i dont know jack shit compared to you but im not so
stupid that i would false claim an engine calling it a v6 enen though that
it is a 4 cylinder..I guess it was a swap becaus im possitive it had one.Oh
and i do have my permit and who needs a lincense to drive?Not me!
Like i said previously no hard feelings :mrgreen:
Ok James Watt. I'l just assume you have special privaledges over every motorist in America. Anywhos, if you don't mind telling me what color was the valve cover on the engine.....
Thank God, we don't let 15 year olds drive in Australia. And thank fark your not driving here.
I'm 18 and my first car is a 1990 Civic DX 1.6i. They're good for travel around town, but above 80 mph they guzzle like any other machine on the road heh. Uhh, low maintenance, good gas mileage, and Honda quality. Can't do much better than that for a first car. If you're against Hondas for some reason (which I'm sure many people are, but not many on the import forum) then a Toyota Camry or a Volkswagen Golf would be good too. gas mileage, efficiency, and they're all small and fast. also, RWD vehicles aren't good for beginners... my friend bought an 84 firebird, he isn't the best driver, and he has had some close encounters on the freeway hehe. good luck
Grey with red letters (valve cover color) which also states v6 on it not
that im basing my knowledge on that. I believe it said dohc on it and 24
valve cant really remeber to well
wanna buy an 87 corolla? RWD... AE86... INITIAL D!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!INITIAL D!!!!!!!!! DRIFT CAR!!!!!!!!!... sorry... ive wanted to do that for a while
Oh you mean Grey With Red Letters like this one?
Yep kind of like that :smoke:
why arent rwd cars good for your first? :doh:
RWD cars are the best... all the cool kids drive them... only problem is that they can get squirly in the rain or especially the snow if your not easy on the throttle...
im sure there are plenty of nice cars for under 3000.. i have found plenty, thats why i have a nissan sentra(91), a honda accord(88), a mustang(67), and a supra(86) i spent 800$ on the sentra 4000$ on the mustang 1200$ on the accord and 1000$ on the supra and i am fixing them up as soon as i get another job,, because im about finished with the sentra and mustang then sell them $$profit$$ did it with a 92honda and a 1970 buick electra
Kiddies, kiddies. If we're going to play together, we must learn to share.
Anyway. From what I've seen, a Ford Probe is sure to beat a stock Civic DX, LX, or EX (I hate to say this about my beloved :[ ), and most likely would be quicker to say 60 mph than an Eclipse RS or GS, but all of this is very theoretical.
..The reason I say that is because the Ford Probe is likely to fall apart on the way to 60 miles per hour. They have been one of the least reliable cars in the past 10 years. Research, my friends.
If there is anything to know about DSMs DSMer would know it... (for the
most part...) We all know DSM is Diamond Star Motors, we all know that I4s
are the only stock Talon engines, we all know a Talon is basically an
Eclipse... etc.... that is not ignorance...
I am sooo glad I resurected (sp?) that phrase...
Car idea: Im that age and I have a 99 Camry... Perhaps that could be an idea for you... :thumbs:
He might have meant an eagle talon. istead of a talon eclipse, there are 4 cyl, and 6 cyl's.
...ok, eagle being a make, talon being a model... whats a talon eclipse?
You make a smiley as if you've accomplished something. The engine pictured
above is an Inline4 cylinder, wich leads me to my original statement. You
don't know shit about cars, nor how to properly distinguish an I4 from a
V8. I would have let a V6 for a V8 slip, but thats just obtuse on your
behalf. Your uncle DID NOT have a V6 Talon. He had a Talon, that comes with
Jesus, the nerve of these newbies. "No it was a V6 talon, I'm telling you I'm not a dumbass". From now on all your decision making privaledges have been removed. Your opinion is worth less than the slpash my fecal matter makes when hitting the toilet.
No there arent; but..... there are dumbasses and idiots. Wich one are you? I vote for both.
I meant there are v4 and v6 eagle talons.
No, and NO.
Ughh, go shoot yourself and do me a favor. No such thing as V4's(I'm sure there has to be one somwhere, but not in the sense you're using it). NO! There are no V6 talons. They only come with INLINE 4's!! Damn you idiots don't get it do you? NO V6; ONLY I4.
DSMer, they know they are wrong. They won't admit it. These are the types of people that should be talked about in the thread "why so mean??" It's idiots like them who know they are wrong, and keep on arguing. That's "why so mean" But....as I was going to say; Move on dude! It's hopeless.
if you want something fast and stylish, a V8 will do good, you can beat any 4 banger out there with a stock 7.4 liter
You really hate Four bangers, dont ya...and I dont think your statement is entirely true :thumbs:
Well if you want to learn how to drift and want a RWD, I'd go with a 2nd
gen rx-7. You probably can't find a Turbo model for $3000, but the N/A
ones( 1986-1984) with 146bhp are pretty damn cool too. And btw this is all
if you're willing to learn about rotary engines. :wink2:
And as for FWDs, you can easily find 1st gen dodge neons which aren't bad, not sure if they'll make you look cool though... :lol:
Or you're willing to search hard you can probably find a base model 2nd gen Dodge Stealth...they're pretty damn slow, but it'll make you look cool after some exterior mods! :laughing:
If your so sure your right dont argue.I clearly stated !!! Yep !!kind of!!!
like that,not exacly like that i was reffering to the color :banghead: ANd
i use the smillys for humor(what they were made for).I know what i saw and
if talons did not come with a 6 cylinder and just an inline four then i
guess it was a swap.!! Dont get so frantic over this small issue.CALLING me
a dumbass and a child when your the one acting like it.GET OVER IT
Does this make you happy
YOUR RIGHT!!!!!!!!!!!! :screwy:
NOW back to the topic!!! :thumbs: :thumbs: ::fu:
I've said all I have to say. Your intelligence speaks for itself(or lack thereof).
As a final thought, I vote "lack thereof".
Sorry man that i started all this. :banghead: I was trying to find some
papers on the car to scan on here to prove you wrong,well anyway it turns
out it wasnt really a talon it was an eclipse.It was wrecked in the front
and they replaced the front bumper with an eagle talon one.I was also was
mislead by the rear bumper which said eagle talon>!!!!!!!! :oops: :oops: I
feel like a complete idiot,but it was actually a V6.
They just bought a junk talon to get all of these parts. :doh:
Now you're going to feel like even more of a complete idiot. You said it was a '93 Eclipse with a Talon front bumper. Guess what Twinkie. In '93 the only engines available in an Eclipse (or Talon) was the SOHC 1.8l four cylinder or the DOHC 2.0l four cylinder. Either way you go, IN '93 IT CAME WITH A FOUR CYLINDER. So what's it gonna be, do you want to admit you're lying at this point or keep digging your hole?
I wasnt surew what year it was i was using that as a binch mark to get the basic idea.Im still not sure what year it was but its a little newer than the one pictured in dsmers avatar
What you are doing now is called tap dancing... and you're not very good at it. The best thing you can do now is stop BSing, admit you were lying and hopefully save at least a shred of credibility for your future posts. The second best thing you can do is brush up on your spelling, and save the "I'm too lazy" or "it doesn't matter" crap for someone who cares.
if you want a cheap car, you cna do what i did
93 accord, h22 engine swap, i got the accord cheap cause it had a blown engine, i think like 1000 locally, and when i purchased my swap i got it for 1800 with all the wires,ecu,engine, trans, and axles a few other things too..me and a friend installed it,so we didnt have to spend the extra like 900 in mechanic bills... i donno bud but ill stick wit my car any day :thumbs:
i would really like to see this v6 eclipse... last i knew they had noithin but the L4 motor
nah your def right, i feel like a douche lol i looked at hte pics, its def
a i4... lol red already stopped talkin bout it, rightfully so....
<=== feels like an idiot, first post... and i ****ed up :doh:
im not sure, but has any 1 heard of a v6 in a 93 eclipse/talon, i do remember that the 4 took up most of the space under the hood let alone a 6
A Ford Probe? Get a Chevy cavalier LS. You could get a Z24, but it cost a little bit more than what you might have to spend. I don't think a v-6 would fit inside a Talon\Eclipse. My buds got a 3000gt and his motor takes up all the space there is. Even if you did somehow manage to get a v6 under the hood, there won't be room for the battery and all that other crap.
yeah i bet its a great car but i need someting that looks a little better
its an awsome car, i love laurels. id sport the crap out of it... only peoblem is that they dont make them here in the states
Really?! wow, that must suk!
yea come to think of it i dont see that many american cars here in New Zealand, only privatly imported 1's
ill sell u a talon esi for 10k.... it has 10 super chargers and 10 turbos... omg neon lights and carbon fiber spark plugs!!!! and the IAC iz like bigger than the motor omg.... crazy deal LOL
Ill only buy it if it has a 7 foot tall rear wing. And a fart cannon as a exhaust tip.
i just wanna say that DSMer is killing the shit out of that lil kid...i
kinda feel sorry for em'. :umh: Its not his fault that hes not as
previleged to know as much about cars as him. He just studies too much and
all that car knowlege is just crowding his lil head :laughing:
P.S. i love that THINK, TYPE, SUBMIT...that just killed it right there
