IF YOUR LOOKING TO GET YOUR HANDS IN ON THIS AND MAKE A MONSTEROUS METRO, THIS MOTOR IS CONSIDERED BULLETPROOF AS FAR AS MOST 2.0 DOHC GO, FROM THE MITSUBISHI FACTORY THEY MADE JUST UNDER TWO HUNDRED HORSES, WERE CAPABLE OF HOLDING 14 LBS OF BOOST ALL DAY, AND PRETTY MASSIVE TORQUE, AS THEY WERE NORMALLY PUT IN THE ALL WHEEL DRIVE. IF THERE IS ANYONE ELSE WHO IS A DSM FAN ON THE SIDE, GET WITH ME, I HAVE GOOD BLOCKS, ROTATING ASSEMBLIES, THROTTLE BODIES, MEGASQUIRTS, CONTROLLERS, MANIFOLDS, TURBOS, THE ONLY THING WE MAY HAVE TO MODIFY/BUY IS SOME EXTREMELY SHORTER AXLES TO COMPENSATE, I DONT KNOW IF FRAME WILL HOLD UP EITHER, AFRAID TO PUT THIS IN AND FOLD THE CAR IN HALF, FIRST TIME I STOMP THE GAS MY DRIVERS SEAT WILL BE ON THE FLOOR. IF YOUR A FABRICATOR AND COULD TAKE ON A WHOLE NEW CHASSIS, IM WELCOME TO THAT OPTION TOO, AND MAY EVEN MAKE IT AN ALL WHEEL DRIVE, USING THE TALON DRIVE, I HAVE LSD AND SUSPENSION PARTS. LET ME KNOW WHAT YOU GUYS THINK OR IF SOMEONES EVER THOUGHT OF ANYTHING LIKE THIS.

yes, talon engine is quite a bit longer than the G10, and engine bay wasnt exactly built to be home to something that big and nasty, tube chassis should accomodate this. i will be using the first gen 4G63, six bolt, have an engine right now @ 570 horse, when in car, i had about 420 horse at all four wheels. front wheel drive trans i have will work, question is, what to do about axles, where i live, noone can do anything like that, not even gun drilling or splines, so me having one custom made isnt easy either, brakes are going to be a huge issue i havent quite figured out yet, whether to just use talon wheel assemblies or what ?
