Oh ma gosh! Saw the 2003 Tiburon on the freeway today. 405 Freeway going north in California between Howard Hughes Parkway and the 10 Freeway onramp. I was following it as long as I could before a dumb Beamer got in my way and the Tiburon zoomed past.

17 inch rims, dual exhuast...must have been the V6. Dudes, what can I say, it's like a cross between a Viper, Mustang, an old Tiburon and Ferarri. Geez, are they already out or was it a demo vehicle?

Welcome to the site beast. Did you need to change your pants after you saw it? Hell, I'm sprouting wood just thinking about it. <img src=/images/forums/snitz/smile.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>

Hey all- new to the site, checking stuff out.

On the 2003 Tib... the Hyundai HQ is about 2miles from my apartments in Huntington Beach. And they've got a couple DOZEN of the new Tibs sitting in the parking lot out front.

Anybody can stop in and take a look at 'em whenever they want.

Apparently they let the employees have aat 'em for a bit to work out the bugs... I had multiple "sightings" driving around on weekends before I got my brain working and went to the HQ.

Hyundai released pricing and specs to its dealers last week. So it should not be more than a few weeks before they are at the dealers.

The GT will be the highest produced model.
They said that the GT will have a 7 speaker cd/ tade with a 8 inch sub. And optional race pedals and ofcourse the 6 speed.

LOL @ WhoopOi That does not make any sense <img src=/images/forums/snitz/smile.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>

Man, I want Tuscani... but first IF I buy it, I am going to (have to) get clear corner because I don't like big amber corner in current Tuscani model.

Hey guys,

Thanks for the welcome! I've actually been reading up on the posts on this site for a while ever since I heard about the 2003 Tibby. Dudes...I actually like cars mostly stock...like in their OG flava...but I want to get a v6 tibby with 6 speed and add a air filter to boost it a bit...any ideas which air filters or cais would give you the most boost without hacking your engine too much? thanks!

From what I've been reading, K&N has a special filter made just for the New Tiburon V6 and it is told that it increases 15WHP (Get it? 15HP to "Wheel" <img src=/images/forums/snitz/thumbup.gif width=25 height=18 border=0>) I don't think it's just an air filter that does it.. and it is told that this thing costs close to 700 bucks (USD). Hope there is something else that might be more helpful.. <img src=/images/forums/snitz/eek.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>

Thanks Cheori!

But dang, $700 bucks. How does the filter work? Does it require you to cut anything in your engine? I want to try to improve the car as much as possible with as little hacking as possible, hehe.

I guess it really depends on then...how much a V6 is.

Is a fully loaded V6 the one with auto shiftronic and 16 inchers with the stereo system? Or what's the price difference between that and the 6 spd V6? What is fully loaded?

Fully loaded will be with 17" rims, the upgraded Infinity stereo, V6, 6-speed, sunroof, leather, etc. for $19,997 before dealer markups.

You know I bet that there will be so much demand, that some prospective owners will have to pay premiums for it.. <img src=/images/forums/snitz/disapprove.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>

I am not too sure if this picture will show up, yet from what i've been reading, it is more than a air filter.. the name listed is "K&N Hyper charger air filter."

anyways, $700 is more than what I would expect for an airfilter -0-;

It won't work. The filename uses Korean letters which us Yankees and Canucks can't pick use on our computers.
