DSM'* are Diamond Star Motors indeed; it was a bastard child of Chrysler and Misubishi, so to speak. It no longer exists, but put out vehicles in the 90'* such as:

Misu Eclipse/Plymouth Laser/Eagle Talon
Mitsu Galant
Mitsubishi 3000GT/Dodge Stealth (not sure about this one)


Current Eclipses and Galants are *not* DSM'*.

I wouldn't mind having a DSM to play around with. Those things can handle a ton of boost. There are many many fast DSM'* out there.

3000GT/stealth was off the same platform so I think they are DSMs...
