I heard that someone in this world has 600HP Tiburon... and that was done by putting extra engine on the back of Tibby. I'm not sure if it's true or not, but can it be possibly done? (maybe it can really screw up the car...)
If it's possible, I'm not sure how much it will cost... but I think I can do that for around $6,000 if I already have extra engine.
So what's your thought about dual-engine Tiburon?

I think it'd be a waste of time and money. You'd be better off investing that $6,000 into your extra motor and building it up and turboing it.

Oh I see... but as I said, I don't know the price point...
Anyway, I am not gonna do some series modification anytime soon... at least to my current Tibby. But I'll do some and more to my next Tibby.

I think a jet engine might fix the horsepower problem<img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle>

ummm.... Most likey to just buy the engine and have a turbo put on it will be about $5,000... probably another $2000 for the cutting and welding to put it in. Then $4,000 for all the custom linkage parts... $1,000 to tune the damm thing.....$1,500 for all the little gauges and controllers you will need.....$10 for the new pair of boxers you will need after you go to drive it once and you sh*t your pants after feeling the insaine power that it has.<img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle><img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle><img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle>

But heh what ever floats your boat!<img src=icon_smile.gif border=0 align=middle><img src=icon_smile_wink.gif border=0 align=middle>

Last I heard that Tiburon cost $90,000 all together to get that other engine in the back. The jet engine would probably be easier... Just use your creativity and some duct tape I'm sure it would fit right on top of the roof.<img src=icon_smile_sleepy.gif border=0 align=middle>

There is a tiburon, I saw it in sport compacact car magazine, someone entered it in the ultimate street car challange. So, it's out there, but I believe a dealer or somone sponsered had the car built , the average person cannot afford it. Theres also a website out there with the car on it. I'll try to find it again and let you see it.

It was/is Dragon Fabrications. An offshoot of McIntyre Hyundai.
