They have different engines. The 96 esi Talon has the 420A engine and yes,its iron block can handle a turbo. The stock guts can handle about 8 psi.


But for the cash of that build up, you'd probably save money selling that car and buying a TSi...and AWD.

Yeah I agree with what if you want turbo just sell your esi and save a little more for a tsi or gsx. The 420a is a good commuter motor but if your looking to make power in a dsm go with the 4G63. They can handle much more boost on stock internals and with buying a gsx or tsi you have AWD. Or Gs-t with FWD is even turbo. All up to you.

If you're part of the 8% that rock out everyday, put this in your signature

Owning a DSM is like having retarded kids. You get angered and frustrated by them yet you love them to death.
