Here are some specs you guys will like, this is prelim info for the cars performance,

4 speed Auto 2.7L v6. 0-60 7.8 sec , 1/4 mile 16 sec or better, top speed 136 mph drag limited.

5 speed 2.7L v6 0-60 7.5 sec, 1/4 15.6 sec @ 89.6 mph top speed 139 mph gear limited.

6 speed 2.7L v6 0-60 7.5 sec, 1/4 15.5 sec @ 90.5 mph top speed is 139 mph drag limited.

Expect limiters at 130 mph on all models

the gearing of the 6 speed is almost the same as the 5 speed except the 6th gear will let it cruise much lower at freeway speeds ( yet they rate the 6 speed to have lower hwy gas milage ). The Auto gearing is almost the same as the sonatas. It is also obvious the gas milage was calculated by Hyundai and was under estimated or in other words was under "Spirited Driving" conditions. Expect the car to actually easily do better in real life, Hyundai is UNDER emphasizing the cars performance and oh all cars will do .88g on a skid pad and slalom at 62 mph or better.

Just for comparison the 230 hp Hyundai motor sport 2003 tibs run like this
0-60 6 seconds ( the old ones did 6.3 sec )
1/4 in 14.6 sec ( actually slower than the 2001 tibs they had )
topspeed 145 mph, these cars are made for hi speed endurance racing remember not 1/4 sprints. I didn't get it's skid pad performance.

this is with the 6 speed and once again this is prelim info but the performance data is what it HAS done.

Expect the 4 cyl to be .5 sec slower than current 2001 models auto or 5 speed.

This info is from a reliable but unnamed source at Hyundai Canada ( quebec )

one strange thing ive noticed is the horrible gas mileage on the new tibbys, the v6 doesnt even get 30 mpg on the highway, which makes me question its gearing...

i dont think that its some kind of miracle that you can pull off 30 mpg on the highway with a v6......or maybe im wrong i dunno

whats funny is that even though its not that fast, it will still kick a 2002 v6 camaros ass... hahahahahahahahahhahha

the weird thing i noticed is that the auto v6 gets more gas mileage than the 6 speed.....anyone know why???


<hr width=60% noshade size=1 align=left>I just love how my friends have put $500+ into their civics & my stock tib still goes just as fast & sounds exactly the same.

So whats cool is with a 2001 with an CAI, Cat back system, header, BBT, and short shifter y ou should be able to keep right up to the V6 in race. Ya it takes some mods, but racing on the street one little slip from a bad driver in the V6 and he'll be handed his as$ from the 2001 I4. hehehehe, 21,000 and thats all you get is 0- 60 7.5? not very impressive. I would spend 2 grand more on an altima and hand it's as$ to him in 2 pieces.<img src=/images/forums/snitz/smile.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>

Actually dijabutia you can get the V6 Altima for 23k. The price for the V6 Altima is $22,349 msrp. Though I'd get the V-6 Tiburon over the V-6 Altima any day. Now don't get me wrong. Those new Altima's are cool. <img src=/images/forums/snitz/thumbup.gif width=25 height=18 border=0>

That was a bit disappointing, but I guessed almost right on, 15.4-15.5.

Not sure how it could have beat the RSX-S though <img src=/images/forums/snitz/wink.gif width=15 height=15 border=0> cause the RSX-S would have had a little over a car length I would think.

Now 230 hp eh and running 14.6?

I think that is as good if not better then the Altima. If you get that sucker up to 280 hp (like I am hoping for Forced of course) then I would be running high 13's. That would be oh so sweet.

Reason for the slower times.

Weight Weight Weight <img src=/images/forums/snitz/guns.gif width=33 height=16 border=0><img src=/images/forums/snitz/guns.gif width=33 height=16 border=0> I would have paid the extra $2,000 - 3,000 if Hyundai shed about 300-500 pounds on that car. I think it would have been possible too.

Brendan,

You said to expect limiters on all models at about 130mph. Were you speaking of the American version or the Canadian version? (or is there no difference)

I only ask b/c last night I blew away a Mustang and a Camaro that were racing each other, and I kinda joined in to show em a thing or two. I took my foot off the gas at a little over 140mph. (and still speeding up in 5th mind you) <img src=/images/forums/snitz/evil.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>

Anywho, gonna find a local track to take my new Tibby out and see what it can really do. <img src=/images/forums/snitz/smile.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>

Later all

The curb weight on the Altima 3.5 sl in maual trim is only 3225lbs, with 240hp and 246lb/ft of torque. Very nice.

To make things interesting, that 2.5l v6 in the Altima is the same engine making 255hp in the Maxima, and produces 280+ in the new 350Z. Just gotta figure out what the differences are. <img src=/images/forums/snitz/smile.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>

There are 2 v6 altimas, a 2.5L and then the 3.5L , I don't think you can get the 3.5L for less than 25gs. These figures are CONFIRMED and basically GARANTEED. Also this is STOCK bone stock. I said expect limiters but thats speculation still. the performance of this car is very impressive when looking at cost/weight of the car, also the RSX is lighter and it is a mid 15 sex runner to .

i thought the 2.5 was an I4<img src=/images/forums/snitz/oogle.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>

The 2.5L is an I4. The same one found in the new Sentra SE-R (~175hp/180 lb-ft).

As for the Tiburon, we might be taking a 2003 to the illegals tomorrow night depending on if James Fabin is up for it or not. If so, we can find out how it holds up against the other cars, even though it will be an automatic.

BTW, James said HMA tested the auto V6 to just under 8 seconds, so the 6-speed and 5-speed should theoretically be in the low 7s, but don't worry, we'll be testing all of that very soon <img src=/images/forums/snitz/thumbup.gif width=25 height=18 border=0>.

4doorGL just bring a stop watch with you. Its an automatic anyway, and just get a 0-60 time.

From there it would be pretty easy to speculate whether the times Brendan has are off or not (I think they are on target though).

I wouldn't imagine the auto V6 Tiburon being faster then the Accord V6 which has 20hp and 20 lbs-ft more power. (Then again theres a 200lbs difference between the two cars <img src=/images/forums/snitz/uhh.gif width=15 height=15 border=0><img src=/images/forums/snitz/uhh.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>). anyway Accord V6 is 7.8/15.8.

Off-Topic - but the Accord is gonna be sweet next year or the year after. Depends on its release <img src=/images/forums/snitz/wink.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>

I doubt it. Honda will probably screw it up just like they did with the RSX and the new Si.

I doubt he'll be able to due to legal issues and HMA doesn't want to be involved in that, but it was worth a try, right? <img src=/images/forums/snitz/thumbup.gif width=25 height=18 border=0>

Dooh my bad nissan never had a 2.5L v6. isn't the 3.0L an option tho? differnet country specs to, the dealer had v6 on the 2.5L altima I tested ( dealer rice? ) but the times for the 2003 tib are reliable. I will also say the intake and exhaust maniflod are the same fubared concept as the beta so getting more power via intake and headders will work, but to a greater extent on this car ( read better gains on the v6 N/A ) I'm waiting on a dealer to get a v6 tester in Ontario so I can g tech it. Didn't anyone get the rsx mid 15 sex joke either jeebs guys wake up.
