i'm finally going to break down and get a non-porsche for a daily drive. i was looking at 91 celica and noticed the guy also had a 93 talon awd turbo, that may be more my style than a celica i was just wondering if anyone knows anything about the reliability of these cars, and what to look for when looking at and test driving one. and prone problems with the turbo or awd set up that should just be avoided. thanks.

GREAT CHOICE!!!! The Talon AWD are great cars, i mean besides a Porsche!!!! Look out for the turbos they are known to go... if you have any questions go to

http://www.ca.dsm.org

it is the canadian website i dont know the us one, but it is a great site.

The cars are ROCKETS, and i hate to say it but they will smoke MOST porsches, not i will get condemed for saying that but we had a 95 witha blown turbo and it was smoking everything around!!! Another plus about them is that the motors are designed to be VERY UPGRADEABLE, these motors when setup correctly are capable of i think aruound 600HP I know for a fact its in the 500 range!!!! Good choice in cars... Oh yeah if you are interested i have a 97 Tsi AWD coming my way in about 2 weeks, i dont remeber any of the specs on it but if your interested let me know...

well from being around turbo porsches and merkurs, i know what a really bad turbo would look like at idle. how much boost should it put out, so i'll know that it's at least doing that much right. when you say coming your way, do you mean you're getting one, or selling one, or getting one to sell or what.

I wouldnt be able to tell you the boost, but if you go to that board and post that you are buying one and want to know what to look for they will tell you more than i can, just like this board they know what they are talking about. And i meant i am purchasing one to fix and sell it was hit in the driver side door.
