i was thinking about geting a 2000+ tib, but they are so slow and everyone makes fun of them, so i was wondering is i could get it down into mid 14's with apexi afc, headers, cai, exh, pullies, cam gears, ecu. or will i have to go to forced induction. if you could give me any info and give me your 1/4 mile times with the mods you have done(the truth) i would apreachiate it
thanks robbie

I totally agree with y2k.A stock 5-speed can take a non turbo eclipse.If you are worried about what other people think then get a Honda,everyone has one of those.If you want to buy a car do it because you want to that way you can be proud of what you drive.To answer your question,you can have a 14 sec. Tiburon,it all takes alittle money.<img src=/images/forums/snitz/disapprove.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>

I agree, if you think they are slow, or you care about what your friends think, then you should not get one.

You sound like you wanna be with the "in" crowd.

Maybe you should go drive a tiburon instead of listening to your obviously ricey friends :)

They are already run 15.9 stock.

Adding a I/H/E, 1.8ltr, BBTB and a few other mods will get you to where you want to be n/a<img src=/images/forums/snitz/thumbup.gif width=25 height=18 border=0>

Who cares about what the other sayz ?

it's your car not the others.

why I bought my 2001 SE tib ? cuz I love it man. some of my buddies were saying, well you have no room in the back...
Who cares? im the one driving I sit in front, I bought the car for ME not for anyone else.

and if you think they are slow and all that, go try them for yourself cuz a stock Tib can kill any Civic..

see ya, Cabin_Yo

First of all, It will be easier to get into the 14's if you buy a 5speed. Autos are a little slower...no offense to anyone with an automatic..I repect all Hyundis...
Second, Tibies are much better looking than Civics..and faster..just look at motor trend quarter mile times and compare for yourself!!!I've never had a problem with people thinking my car is ugly..or at least they never had the balls to tell me to my face!!

What are you comparing it to when you say it is realy slow? I mean seriously I would't say it is realy fast either but it is far from realy slow.

140 hp
133 lbs torque
0-60 7.9sec
1/4 mile 15.9

It is faster then most cars in its price range and already handles better then most too. I will assume that price is a major factor in your decision. So what are you comparing it to? Most of us here don't consider the Tib REALY slow.

they guy that thinks they are slow obviously never took his honda on the highway, I drove a friends SI in the highway last week, and it had a hard time going up hill, even wiht the crusie control on ,.. my Tib might decrease about 1mile an hour in the same situation, Honda 's week point is torque and the shiity clutch. Cable versus Hydraulic? no contest!

All I can say about this is go to the sportcaompactcar magazine website. They just did their 8 best rides of the year and guess what, The new Tib GT was there! Not only was it there but out of 8 great rides, it had a better 0-60 time than more than half the competition. And may I say the ones that beat the GT are also $10,000 over the MSRP of the tib. The RSX, Miata etc..<img src=/images/forums/snitz/smile.gif width=15 height=15 border=0> So go chew on that one a while before you go off making a foolish mistake like your friends talking you outta a definite competition car. Maybe one of them owns a new celica, which I must say was toasted by the Tiburon by a half second.<img src=/images/forums/snitz/cool.gif width=15 height=15 border=0> Anyone else agree?

Your friends obviously have no clue in what they are talking about. It doesn't even sound like you have test drove one yet and it is obvious that your friends have not. Go take one for a spin. You will fall in love with it. There is nothing weak about 140hp and the torque ratings make up for the difference in hp that you will see in other cars that may have a little bit higher hp.

Driving is believing<img src=/images/forums/snitz/thumbup.gif width=25 height=18 border=0>

And yes 14sec is possible n/a<img src=/images/forums/snitz/thumbup.gif width=25 height=18 border=0>

I really don't get it.. what kind of cars does your friends drive? NSX? RSX Type S? a Ferrari? hey come on.. you gotta agree Hyundai's I4 is one of the good engines out there. Yeah you can't compare it to bigger engine such as Nissan Sentra SE-R Spec V's I4 2.4L.. it's freakin .4L more.. well if you want the veilside kit, it will cost huge amount of money I guess.. go for something else if you really mind what people say.. I really don't get why people complain about sub-compact coupe that has 140 hp..<img src=/images/forums/snitz/oogle.gif width=15 height=15 border=0> for god's sake it's not like 30grand like Honda/Acura.. and it has a torque to kill ricers..<img src=/images/forums/snitz/oogle.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>

Man! The tiburon runs a high 15 now; with a nice amount of N/A mods, you could definately get into 14's; easily! You just got to know what you're doing. There's lots of aftermarket parts for Hyundai now; especially the Tiburon! Then, when you smoke your friends in their "cool" honda's, you can talk sh!t on them all the time. Right? <img src=/images/forums/snitz/thumbup.gif width=25 height=18 border=0>

I think robbiedvh is just making fun of us with his 3 posts. Man, if you insist that "everyone" makes fun of it, just live the Tibbies for us the ones who like 'em. You are going to be inside your car, your going to look at it every day, so better start liking it a lot if your going to buy one. If not, buy something really ugly that will cost you less, and then charge it with mods to get to 13's... <img src=/images/forums/snitz/smile.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>

Robbie...u sound like u have some kind of complex...but i would just like to throw in another tidbit of info. with my WEAK SLOW 2001 tibby, i have beaten at the track, a 2001 eclipse GT, 5speed and sportronic, i beat several SI's who ran high 15's, and i beat an integra gs-r by a car length because his r/t sucked and mine didnt. by the way, i only ran a 15.73 with I/H/E. from what u are saying, it seems safe to infer that you are a crappy driver, so u need a faster car to make up for your short comings. think about this...if u beat a gs-r in a tib, u get props...if u beat a tib in a gs-r, wow, oh well, who cares? get the tib, love the tib, and stop saying they are SLOW!! because they arent!


<hr width=60% noshade size=1 align=left>'01 Tib. 5spd. SR Header, KORE CAI, Custom Cat Back. 17's. Eibach Springs. Tint. MOMO accesories. AutoMeter gauges...and more! TURBO soon to come!

I have two word for you Robbie. Get some laughing gas. Ok, thats more than two. Any ways, what r u talking about slow. I just ran with Cav with 2.4L and beat it , ran with a Miata with intake and exhaust and beat it, then ran with a GS-R that same night and beat it. Now, go get your Tib and like it.

Is there anyone taht live close by this guy? Pls. take him for a ride and ask his friend to bring their cars.

Dude, your 17yrs old. why are you worried about what your friends think? Think about the ladies. Tibs are like chick magnets. Get some mods and dress it up. Then park the car and wait for the ladies to come sticking around your car. Trust me I've done this. Even if they just ask what kind of car is it.
