I found a site that sells Cams and underdrive pulleys for the Alpha engine.
its a KIA site but its for the same engine.
KFX Performance.com     The leader of the Korean aftermarket!!!!!!
call them before you purchase anything.
if ya didn't know the KIA RIO has the same engine as the Accent.

so exciting to see a site still getting things for the engine.

that site's been around for a while now..
the ALPHA engine is the 1.6L DOHC that is currently in the 06,07,08 accents.
.. the engine in the Tib. is called the BETA.. they were just codenames used by Hyundai in their development, and they stuck.
.. also, check their headers.. a couple of guys on the other forum are looking at those.

I'm pretty sure the Alpha engine plays a part in all LC models.
wiki it if you don't believe me.
the newer Alpha you are thinking about is the Alpha II.
just like the beta engine has a Beta II.

The 1.6l DOHC Alpha in the 06-up MC I would assume does not have the same cams as the non-CVVT DOHC Alphas. Prior to that the Rio and the Accent did not share engines.
