i am very familiar with DSMs, and me and my friend noticed that the engine bay of the accent i got is very familiar to that of a 1G dsm... he has an eagle talkin turbo motor, and i was wondering if it is possible for me to swap it in, considering the motor would be put in backwards, i think it would work...

ANY INPUT????

its been a while since this has been talked about. But the Tranny for the DSM and Accent are on opposite sides. So they wouldnt line up right (or at all). If you had a Right Hand Drive accent, that it would be do-able (and it has been done). But for a US accent, i dont think its possible. I know the older Elantra fits the 4G63T (Turbo Eclipses) in just fine. Check out the Hybird forum. Welcome To The Fam.

hmmm...but what about the evo's? their motors sit backwards from the dsm's. I know they are awd and their tranny is different...but what if you could flip the motor (like an evo) it would fit then?

IDK guys i thought it would work perfectly... damn, now all my dreams for having the first 4G63T are shattered :cry: , is there any other turbo motor i can drop in with no problem?, as in an easy 1 day SWAP?? or has a VTEC motor ever been dropped in??

You should be banned for mentioning putting a honda motor in a Hyundai.

A local shop has a turbocharged B16 swapped into an X3, however it's a shop car so it had a bigger budget and almost unlimited resources.

no but i have heard of the beta swap, its the best thing for our accent unless you go turbo, the beta engine puts out 130 HP correct me if im wrong, but its a solid engine, and if you turbo then its even better, but read the hybrid forums, they tell you what engines you are able to swap into our accents
