Work will begin soon on the first HP.Com project car-a 1999 Hyundai Accent GL. Wonder who's it is (<img src=icon_smile_wink.gif border=0 align=middle>). Here's our current plans in close to what the order will be:

<b>Phase 1 - Basic Handling</b>
-Shark Racing strut bars
-Rear sway bar (either HVe or Whiteline)
-Apex springs
-17" Tenzo R C-Type rims with Yokohama A520 205/40R17 tires

<b>Phase 2 - Engine Swap</b>
-Beta swap (including motor, tranny, ECU, axels)
-KORE Beta CAI (3" Accent CAI)
-2.5" mandrel bent exhaust with 5Zigen Fireball muffler
-Shark Racing short shifter
-1.8L Beta intake camshaft
-Bored throttle body and matched intake manifold
-APEXi S-AFC

<b>Phase 3 - Bodykit</b>
-Front end conversion to Accent GS
-SSV Evo IV front bumper
-SSV Evo IV driving lights
-SSV Rear Pods
-HVe RSX side skirts
-Mazda Miata "Sapphire Blue Mica" paintjob

<b>Phase 4 - Advanced Handling/Brakes</b>
-Apex Race Coilovers
-Castor kit (either HVe or Whiteline)
-Aligncraft Camber Kit
-4 wheel Tiburon cross drilled/slotted disc conversion (non-captive)
-Braided steel brake lines

<b>Phase 5 - Interior</b>
-KORE White Face Gauges
-Sparco Torino racing seats or GK Tiburon seats
-Full black interior including leather shift boot and leather wrapped steering wheel

<b>Phase 6 - Turbo</b>
-"New" Beta head ported and polished with 3-angle valve job
-RPW valve springs
-Forged pistons (HKS possibly)
-Forged rods (RPW possibly)
-Clutch (not sure of brand yet)
-Custom T3/T4 turbo kit

There will be many additions and changes to this list, but that's a general idea of how it will be happening <img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle>.

it's sounds like an interesting project, I'd like to see the transformation... like a time-lapse photograph...

hmmm... but, how did you get from <b>Phase 1</b> to <b>Phase 3</b>?... is there a top secret <b>Phase 2</b>?...

Doh! I'll fix the phase names.

As for sponsership, HP.Com doesn't have any plans to do any yet. We do have a few sponsers for the project car though <img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle>.

Yes, we'll be changing our plans for this car and making getting rid of all the "show" mods.

I'll post more when we get it finalized.

I don't think it ever came about. The closest thing to it I can remember was rudy's accent, until well....we know about that.

Pumbaa was telling me about this a couple days ago.

Will the 2004 Tibby 4 banger fit nicely, or would you have to modify the mounting locations radically? I know the earlier betas will fit, but I haven't seen the beta 3 yet.
