Hello everyone the other day I was browsing the web for performance upgrades on the 2k3 Tiburon GT. I found this awesome looking supercharger kit by Hituning.com, but the website doesn't say much about it. I actually found the pictures at this website www.hyundai.i12.com/hcpics_idx.htm The kit looks awesome and the car they have it on looks pretty mean. I was wondering if anyone knows where I can get some blackouts for the Tiburon GT. I've seen them on cars on the web, but I don't know where to get them? Help?
I don't see what kit you are talking about since the link doesn't work but if you see that link at the top of the page labeled Shop.hp.com you will see that we off the Alpine super charger. Not only is that kit noe carb certified, Alpine also adds a 3 year warranty to your powertrain since adding a supercharger voids your factory powertrain warranty. (Now thats huge) Also, Steve from Alpine is an active member of this site and tries to answer everyones questions. (he posts as Ballrub)
Here is something he posted in another thread

Yes, the 2.7L kit has been CARB certified (E.O. # D-551-1), and should have stickers back from the printer this week.
Our big meeting with Corporate Hyundai went very well, but they admitted they would have to change (beef up) the clutch on the 6-speed before they were content that the added hp and torque wouldn't cause warranty and customer service issues. They are not prepared to make those changes immediately, putting off our chances of this kit being offered through their dealer network for this year. If they "beef up" the clutch for next year, maybe...
This also means that "technically" our supercharger kit "voids" the factory power train warranty. That is why we have instigated a limited "3-Year / 36,000 Mile Power Train Warranty" that supersedes the factory warranty, and the consumer has the option of extending that warranty at the end of the first warranty, that will match or mirror the remaining factory warranty. This is underwritten by Dell Financial, and is only available in the U.S. and Canada.
There is a replacement for displacement. It is on 2 wheels and 600cc.
Oops sorry guys.. Red_AGT has the link running right on his posting. It's a cool supercharger, but I haven't really read the website to find any details. It would be nice if it produced more than 50 horse power. But who knows..It looks like it has a big intercooler on the front of the car. Do you guys know where I can find the blackouts?
I think the Alpine would still be great. You don't get the nasty bubble that the Thunder S/C comes with. Sure its a centrig producing higher end hp - but with that bubble I would prefer the low end torque.
That is the earliest and earliest model of turbo.
Thunder was in magazines before.
One Elisa was supercharged and the other Elisa was turbo charged.
They were only demo cars for their shops.
Even now, I have yet to hear anyone going for forced induction with Elisas.
