wtfisafleek is cool... so far.
This is a really cool car, I always liked them. I've seen maybe two on the road, EVER. Actually one was in a parking lot not long after someone had just bought it brand new.

One suggestion I'd make is to disassemble that rear caliper again and replace the piston. The finish didn't look bad, but now that the chrome is compromised I wouldn't be surprised if it corrodes again. If you keep it in there I think it'll work ok, but you might want to flush the brake fluid every fall. More worrying to me was the rust in the caliper. Were you able to get it all out? Did it leave any bad pits?

What is that color called by the way? Reminds me of GM's Sunset Orange.

It gets a lot of looks for sure.

Yeah, the rear caliper is still the way I assembled it as can be seen. No issues what so ever. The noise was actually from the parking brake shoes needing adjustment after the installation of new rotors.

I don't recall much honestly. Sorry. One day I will replace the calipers. So that's been the plan since the brake work was preformed.

The color is Paprika Red Pearl. The car is one of 15 ever made. Beige interior, auto trans and Paprika red pearl. This car is one of two possibly three left. Paprika Red Pearl was the rarest or second rarest color of the 2Gs. But this combo is the rarest. And it being a '98, the last year of Eagle pushes it over the edge in terms of rarity. Too bad it wasn't better taken care of before I got it.

Long term I want to find a roller chassis, strip it, paint it and start putting parts off this car onto the new (rust free) freshly painted chassis one part at a time. Same color of course. The best I can do to "save" the car. Salt kills DSM's like it does Hondas.

Worse really. Honda rust is usually confined to the rear of the car. Salt on a dsm attacks the strut towers in the engine bay. Once bad enough, the car is unable to be driven.


I lost one that way

Fortune to have that rust repaired too.

Thankfully my bay and strut towers are perfect. Not a spec of rust.

I've seen DSM's with strut tower rot. It's horrible.

Mine is rusted on the skirt side of the rear fender wells. And of course I've got twisties. I know I can find a set of replacements if I wait. But I'd rather get another rust free chassis so I can make some other modifications to it before swapping everything over. Rust preventative like a mad man for one.

Life is good!




Picture above is taken from my residence here in Jackson Wyoming.

Just checking in. Some big things are in the works. My new platform is going to be a Youtube channel! With a little help from some professionals I've recently hooked up with I think those of you that know and follow me will be pleasantly surprised. I've always wanted my own platform where I can do my own thing. That's becoming a possibility as we speak and is already turning out to be more than I originally expected. As for a timeline were quite a ways out. I will let you know more when I know. Until next time!

Thanks! And that's not surprising. Most people don't care for the issues that come along with them. These cars can be crude. If you don't really enjoy working on cars a DSM isn't for you. I wouldn't go through everything one has to go through just to own a fwd either. No offense. The issues can be overcome. It just takes time and money. Quite a bit of both honesty. And of course the will to do so.

I worked on mine almost (if not more) than I drove it.

I had a fully built bottom end, forged crank knife edged and micro polished along with forged H beam rods and 50mm Nippon pistons at 9.5:1, Kelford 272s, Howards lifters and dual bee hive springs, port and polish, 3 angle job, Cyclone intake with the blue and white vacuum canister, big 16g Evo 3 turbo, external dump off the turbo, 3 in mandrel bend straight pipe. Innovative wide band, ECMlink tuned to 28 for 93 with RC 750 injectors, innovative fpr. ETC. ETC. (that's only a small part of the list)

I had plans to convert it to AWD and E85 but got sick having it so I got rid of it before I actually did. Don't get me wrong, it was fast and really fun to drive. I got looks and compliments constantly, just got tired of working on it.

I LOVE working on cars, been doing it for a living since I was 16, but those things are something else. Didn't help that the previous owner didn't take care of it hardly at all.

Sounds like most DSM'ers! Funny you said you worked on it more than you drove it. I've heard it said I'll bet 1000 times about these cars. I enjoy working on cars too. This one had me cussing more times than once. I expected it though. I knew what I was getting into. Ah the cost of going fast... in a DSM.

I wish I had your engine. Serious money and time there. Looks like you went about as far as most do. On FB pages so many DSM's are "complete" and "just need a tune." Lol I'm sure you know all about that.

Bringing this back home. Going to pick it up late next week. It's sat for a year. Been driven once during that period about 10 miles. Has been started up every few weeks and let run for 15 minutes. Has been under a car cover.

Since it's been sitting I'm told the front brakes are needing replacement. Even though they are relatively new. So I ordered a brake package from RockAuto.



Also, it's due for an oil change. If not a little over. So I bought a new Royal Purple filter and Royal Purple 10w30.

Since it will sit in my garage I will tinker on it as I have time.

I like this car. 10+ years ago when I bought my cb7 the final decision came down to an eagle talon or the cb7. I went with the cb7, but still was always curious of these. I've never driven one, always wanted to do that too.

Thanks! It's one of two vehicles I'd never part with.

It was different for me when I first started driving it. I tend to turn too quickly when driving it decently quick. I'll cut the corners off so to speak. I guess that's because of driving cars with so much understeer for so long. I do the same thing in my Vette. Run too close to the inside of the corner. This thing is fun. However it can be capable and almost beg to do things that aren't safe. Twisty roads it's easy to get way too serious without realizing it. I guess that's a good thing. Just trying to find the line between safe and fun is difficult. The Vette corners too but I don't trust the Vette. This thing I know won't kick out from under me. It'll just massively oversteer when it's had enough. Which had only happened once. It was very forgiving as were the circumstances. Hence why I drove it so hard.

It made it. This is a dirty picture. I spent 7 minutes at the car wash cleaning it. It looks much better. The car pretty much sat for 1 year and a week. Will post more updated picture soon. Now that it's clean and sitting in my driveway. I have all 4 vehicles at my residence now!

My wife and I detailed this today. She did most of it. It was our first time using a claybar. It looks incredible!

Thank you!

The idea is still there. Things are getting more in place as time progresses. Honestly I got caught up in making it a reality more than moving forward the idea. If that makes sense. I could probably move on it now if I wanted to. However I'm still making up my mind on what it is I want it to be. I'd rather not be a youtube success and hit on things I really care about than become "successful". It really isn't about success. It about portraying what I want to do in a specific light. It's not for everyone however I think most people will find it easy to appreciate. New ideas are coming to me daily. Which broadens the horizons but at the same time makes more decisions. Nevertheless I need to be more progressive with it and start making moves.

Just picked up a Garrett Big T28 off eBay. It's comparable to the 16g. Got it for $230 shipped. It's used of course. Genuine Garrett. The current T25 is in bad shape. So the T28 will be a nice replacement. And it's a direct bolt on for 2g's. Not like the 16g.

I'm going to pick up some gaskets. That's literally all thats needed to install it.

Will post pictures when I get it.

I would LOVE it if you ever put a YT channel together. Not a member but man, that would be useful info to the enth degree lol.

You don't have to be anyone but you Josh ...
You can simply shoot the topic/products without ever even showing an image of "you."

Call me sometime (if you still have my #) and I'd love to toss some concepts around with ya ..
Very exciting ...

hey, I use to own a dsm (400 whp gsx) back in the day! if your still running the stock mass air flow sensor you can adjust the fuel mixture by cutting the rubber/silicone circle on the bottom side and screwing the sensor up and down







regret sell it every time I see another one
