I love the interior <img src=/images/forums/snitz/smile.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>
well, few things might be added.. who knows what that is.. but I assume it'll get close to what Korean specs have and we don't... btw no major changes is gonna be made for few years <img src=/images/forums/snitz/finger.gif width=33 height=15 border=0>

for real, man. this car's crying for a turbo - if there's not one out now, it won't be long <img src=/images/forums/snitz/smile.gif width=15 height=15 border=0> not to mention hyundai putting one in as a special edition or something....... <img src=/images/forums/snitz/thumbup.gif width=25 height=18 border=0>
HP HP HP!!! with that v6 it should be kicking out at least 200. yeah, a turboed gt-s or gt-r would be amazing. you guys really like the interior?! i think the old one is soooo much better looking, the new one just isnt the same.<img src=/images/forums/snitz/guns.gif width=33 height=16 border=0>
<hr width=60% noshade size=1 align=left>I got a 2001 Hyundai Tiburon on Friday July 13 2001. My only problem with my car is, wait, i dont have any problems. I d*$k on every car ive raced, including mustangs, passats, jettas, caprice, lancers, civics, accords and more, with only a cone filter
<img src=/images/forums/snitz/thumbup.gif width=25 height=18 border=0>First off, the Tiburon is not yet WORTHY of GT-R badging...not unless the '04 will be able to compete on a level field with Merc's CLK GTR, Nissan's Skyline(gone for good thank Heaven they were such a bi*tch to work with!!)and Ford's GT40... I hope opening my big mouth will get the engineers and tuners working. Labelling the Tiburon "GT-R" will otherwise be a joke...but it sounds pretty damn good.
What should go into the 2004 Tiburon to make it into GT-R...Aluminium body, like on the FX SE,and an OEM CF hood and bootlid to take away the weight disadvantage. Widened track without increasing wheelbase, Alloy lower arms on the suspension and alloy hub carriers to decrease unsprung weight, making the suspension more reactive, Tubular subframe/s...a V6 with a special issue cast iron block that can be sold aftermarket, as well as a special edition crankshaft,on an increased bore and a shorter stroke. Turbocharging or supercharging and going NO2/NA should be left to the consumer's discretion, making it a true driver's machine, and can be easily handled by companies such as Hyundai Custome, opening up the niche market to the factory, and paving the way for factory tuners. A 6-speed transmission based on the current Santa Fe unit, coupled to full-time 4WD and introducing an active torque splitter. Heavy duty ployeurathane mountings and bushings all round, to improve the handling characteristics, a shortened throw rack and strengthened tie rods and ends...and finally a wide-arch kit for the GTR version, fabricated for 19" rims.
This would make the 2004 worthy of being labelled GT-R...and send tremors down the spines of TRD, NiSmo and Mugen...because they will know that Hyundai is in the game in a big way...and they'd better start their heavy duty R&D all over again.

The tape player needs to go. I looked in the glove box, since it's freaking huge, to see if I could play my double sided 40oz to freedom record. But there wasn't a player in the glove box. Other than that 2003 is sweet. <img src=/images/forums/snitz/cool.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>
