Below is the link to my page regarding the Mitsubishi Eclipse engine/fwd tranny transplant into my 95 sonata.

The option for any of the older version hyundai's normally pre 96 that have gearboxes on the drivers side of a right hand drive vehicle is good, particularly if you're looking at using a 2 litre mitsubishi turbo and are looking for a solid fwd gearbox. (rather than looking at using an evo 4 or newer version motor on a fwd gearbox made by hyundai that will not be able to hold the power reliably.

Nice Sonata, My wife has a 1995 black sonata just like it. She always complains about the lack of power, I think I'll look into an engine swap in the future<img src=icon_smile_wink.gif border=0 align=middle>

You'll find a friend on this site very quick <img src=icon_smile_wink.gif border=0 align=middle>.

Look for Hyundai4G63T. He has the stock 1.8L Sonata (4G67??) turboed.

Hey what's up DSM, i have a 97 sonata and in a few moths, i am going to put a garrett T25 turbo in it, unless you have some better suggestion s for my car. I have a DOHC 16 Valve 4-cylinder, same as the 2nd generation Eclipses and talons. Help me out and give me some info if you could. My sonata is already quick with a few mods but i want the turbo. List some web sites i can look. Hyundai 4G63 is a cool guy, he gots a turboed older elantra , i think , but it looks like it would kill them civics. Well i got to go out and race some people so i will try and reach you again later on. Glad a sonata is in here.I will email you some pics of my car. <img src=icon_smile_cool.gif border=0 align=middle><img src=icon_smile_cool.gif border=0 align=middle>

I was never happy with the performance of the standard motor, the only thing that really impressed me was that the speed from 150 to 200 was decent enough to beat other similiar cars on freeway runs. Using mobil 1 synthetic in the engine all it's life proved to me that it is the only engine oil i will buy for any car i own in the future, just have a look at the internals in the comparison section of my page - i recommend you all use it.

- I was looking to purchase the black coloured sonata, and sometimes i wish i did. i have never seen one here in brisbane, but there are a few here that are the same as my colour.

- Hyundai4G63T is the guy that referred me to this site, could u please msg me again, i had to change pc's again, thanks, and i can't see u online.

- Does Thomas T come on this board Hyundai4G63T? i haven't spoken to him for a little while...

- Fredd_00_69 i saw your car in one of the other posts, looks good and slammed, what sort of suspension are you using? i have coil overs, and am finding that at the ride height i have it as on the page, is as low as i'd like it to be for street use. If you're going to turbo your car, make sure you have solid shocks on the rear. As for the T25, if you are going to leave the compression ratio standard on your car then i guess it's a decent enough turbo, but i can tell you that you'll be running out off puff at about 4500rpm. I thought about modifying my standard motor, but decided against it, because i did not want hassles in my mind as to whether the motor would be reliable or not at a future date. As your gearbox lies on the opposite side to mine, you would need to look at an evo4 or newer version motor to fit into your car, but as i said previously, there is no gearox that i know of that will hold the power reliably. If you have access to gearboxes at the wreckers then that shouldn't be a problem. On my page in the OUTLAWS section, you will find a sonata similar to yours, turbocharged. Before you go about turbocharging, think of these things, access to Gearbox and Driveshafts, more regular servicing, and of course $$$. I know that in the final stages of modification, i am happy about the project, and that i will never recouperate my money, but if you are dead set on something you like, you won't need to justify your mods, particularly when you've just won the race.

Thanks DSM-Sonata, i first wanted it for show, but everyone tried me pulling up next to me and racing so i had to change to street racing. I appreciate all the info you gave and i will look into what you said first before i go ahead with my project. You and Hyundai 4G63 are very helpful and i am glad you guys know alot about hyundais, thanks. Are you going to Nopi this year b/c if you are i will be there with my car in the show representing HYUNDAI. I have Intrax lowering springs right now, but it was to high so i cut two coils off. I eventually will get new shocks since i cut the coils off. I rides a little bouncy, but i will fix that. I friend of mine got a 96 accent and he put on weapon-r coilovers and he is bouncing all over the road now. he says the coilovers he got suck b/c he cut is factory springs first and it rode smooth and now it rides rough. well i'll talk to you later.<img src=icon_smile_cool.gif border=0 align=middle>Oh!Where did you see the car b/c i remember sending it to someone but i didn't know if he put them on the post.

I'm in brisbane, Australia - so i won't be going to Nopi. What is that? yep, i thought u might have cut the springs, here in australia, the lowest spring you can buy for a sonata is 40mm lower from kings springs. Which is the spring manufacturer that most people purchase here.

your car is in the showroom section
