1989 Mustang GT vs. 1995 Eagle Talon TSI AWD


     The turbocharged AWD versions of the Talons and Eclipses are the one of the few imports that can be considered very quick. These cars can't make the power that an american V8 could, but the lack of power is made up for by gobs of traction. Notice there are two different charts, one with the Talon dumping the clucth at 6000 RPM, and one leaving at idle. You will notice that the quick run can only be made by launching at very high RPMs. Also note that I am using the 1995 TSI AWD, as it had more power than previous years.
