I wasn't really sure what you were talking about and had to go a googling.
A DSM Eagle Talon is a Mitsubishi Eclipse (or a Plymouth Laser?).
First generation looks suitably retro-futuristic especially in two-tone white/black or gray/black.
AWD turbo seems to be the one to have and I was surprised to read that it competed in racing and was even successful!
Any chance of a photograph to see what you are working with? From a quick image search I think the clean look with a drop and a nice set of suitably '80's-tastic rims look best.
Most compete in drag racing with the two fastest running either 7.70sec (1st gen) in the 1/4 mile and the other (RWD converted 2nd gen) that ran 6.9sec in the 1/4 mile.
The 1st gens are based off the 6th gen Galants, Especially noticable in the AWD cars, (suspension and drivetrain is practically identical, a few minor differences, due to vehicle length), while 2nd gens were based off the Dodge Avengers of the same years.
They aren't too bad of cars, but I wouldn't nessarily see them as true JNCs, nostalgic sure, but they weren't built in Japan like the rest of our cars, and very few were ever actually exported to Japan, several to Europe and I have even seen a couple 2nd gens in Dubai.
Crankwalk wasn't as big a problem as most made it out to be.
I had a 99 Eclipse NT and that shares more in common with a chrysler product than it does ever being near Japanese, it was honestly just a better styled dodge neon than anything lol.
