With enough money almost anything could be fit in there.

From the factory you have the 1.8l and 2.0l Beta I engines. Newer 2.0l Beta II engines can fit and with a little work run off of your sensors but there's no gain with that swap.

The 2.7l V6 from the 2003+ Tiburon can be swapped in. Some people have swapped in the 4G63T or other Japanese engines but that's far from a direct fit or easy swap. There's a twin engined AWD Tiburon with 2 turbocharged 2.0l engines one over each axle...

It's rated at 172hp.

The swap is not really worth it IMO because it's cheaper and easier to turbo your car and you'll have 200+hp easily.

Go Turbo...

I say go turbo... I have a 01 Tiburon with the 2.0 Beta and my brother has a 07 GT Tiburon auto with I/H/E and a larger throttle body and I spank him all the time... in my opinion I prefer the sleeper look. But if you go turbo SHOP AROUND!!!!! I kind of did and i'm regreting it a little... and when buying parts i'm going to tell you know you GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR... thats all im going to say... later and GL with your project
