Right now I am deciding on whether to go turbo route or NA. That's why I want to know if UFB will produce their turbo kit for new Elantra. He said it will depend on demand. Well, I remember people posting that they are interested in that kit. In addition, 2003 Tiburon will have the same engine. It will increase demand for turbos sunstantially. Besides, UFB himseld said that it won't be that hard to make current Tiburon kit work on newer MAP BETA engines. UFB, please, tell me about your plans.
Also someone mentioned Greddy. What's new over there? Are they going to make a kit for a 2003 Tiburon 4cylinder? Approximate release?
On the other hand, there will be a number of NA mods for my car very soon. KORE and SR are about to start selling their new CAI's. KORE will have an exhaust for Elantra soon. I can join a GB on SR headers right now. The price seems to be very attractive. BBTB is already available. But the thing is that I want a turbo!<img src=/images/forums/snitz/smile.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>

I bet more Elantra turbo kits would be sold if it is offered than Tiburons. There are more elantras sold. I could have bought a tib but I think the 2002 Elantra GT is infinitly better looking and more functional not to mention as fast if not fast than the 2002. I am interested in about 200 whp myself. My 2 cents

We don't do much Elantra turbos here in Korea. But my guess is that the Tibby turbo system will work except for some piping issues. That, you can take care of with a good muffler shop and a small wad of cash.

Sure it won't be "bolt on" but I bet it will be alot less hassle than swapping the 82mm pistons into your scored used block.

Just wait a bit. I say get the funds together etc and work in that engine before voiding your warranty on most of the car.

Why wait? Cause the 2003 2.0L found in the Tiburon is exactly the same. Might be just a different engine platrform but it should be extremely similar. This equates to turbo kits that you can use on your 2001+ Elantras as well.

Though as Cheuk said the turbo system currentally in use will work except for some piping issues.

My friend is actually waiting a couple monthes before buying a 2002 Elantra GT (winter now, might as well drive his beater Tercel and get the Elantra in the spring, only makes sense), then I will be modifying my Tiburon, and I think after a ride or two in the Tiburon, a turbo shouldn't be far behind on his Elantra. Then I can get you all info on what was done etc to make UFB's fit unless UFB makes the small modifications and sells his kit to fit the 2.0L BETA II.

Cheuk - correct!

If yur Elantra has a 2.0 litre J2 BETA engine our Tiburon Kit will work 100% - EXCEPT for the piping and Intercooler size.

I have not had a close look at it, but I doubt that there is as much space behind the bumper of the Elantra compared to the Tiburon - so we might have to make up a slightly different intercooler to fit the Elantra. otherwise everything else is the same.
