OK fans, heres a slight problem for those thinking about replacing the stock air filter with a K&N (until a company comes out with a CAI) on the V6 engine. Thinking that Hyundai would use a existing airbox for the 2.7L Sonata or Santa Fe, i looked up the K&N part numbers for them.......and guess what? Two different part numbers!! Sonata = pn 33-2188, Santa Fe = pn 33-2198......anyone know which works on the 03 Tiburon?

This is from the Hyundai parts extranet.

This is the picture with the part number for the v6 tib, http://partscatalog.hyundaidealer.com/images/PartsGif/3x/T20280028102.gif

This is the picture with the part number for the 02 v6 sonata, http://partscatalog.hyundaidealer.com/images/PartsGif/3x/S40280028102.gif

The hyundai part numbers appear to be the same #28113

This is for the 02 santa fe, http://partscatalog.hyundaidealer.com/images/PartsGif/3x/SM0280028102.gif

They all appear to have the same part number at hyundai, not sure why they would have a different part number at K&N unless there are different flow characteristics for the sonate and santa fe because of the difference in vehicle type. The K&N from the old tiburon fits in with a little trimming of the rubber flange, that's what I have in now. I emailed K&N about when they would have something available specifically for the 03 tib and they have of course not replied and it's been over a week allready. Maybe if everyone sends them an email they'll get off their asses and respond!

i crossed referenced that number from Hyundai (28113) at the K&N website and what comes up doesnt help a bit...........K&N lists about 7 items for that number and none of them looks right. This sucks!! <img src=/images/forums/snitz/angry.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>

The k&n part numbers are not the same as the hyundai part numbers, they use their own numbering designation. I was just saying for all intents and purposes that the filter appears to be the same for all three hyundai's, so theoretically either k&n would fit (sonata or santa fe) it may just be a difference in filter flow (number of pleats=total area of filter) physically I would think either one would fit since dimensionally the filter seems to be the same for all three models on the hyundai part. Give k&n a call and see if they know, they could give you the physical dimension of the filter and see if it matches the size of your stock filter.

I just bought a K&N fileter for my '03 tib and this is the number that was very close to the factory filter. the part # for the K&N is 33-2050. it was just a tiny bit smaller than the stock one and the rubber surround is a bit thicker. I just installed it about 45 mins ago and it seems the gas pedal is a little more responsive than before.

Just to be safe, I think you should probably mod it after your car has been broken in real good.

I contacted K&N directly about a filter for the '03 Tib. They said it would be 2-3 months before they had one on the market. Expect it not to be the same as what's out there now.

I don't know about that.

Those gains are far too big for just a drop in replacement. Even a Cone style replacement seems optimistic.<img src=/images/forums/snitz/oogle.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>

People! I finally got what this thing is and what it does.. Ok. The official name of this air filter is "Hyper Charger Air Filter" It must be specially ordered from K&N Air Filter. K&N declaires this air filter as "Exceeding the limits of usual open air filter" and I guess it sure is right since there's 12.5+ to WHP.. Amazing specs.. with a normal air filte+ ECU remapping, it has been told to go up 10 hp. I am not sure if it is to wheels or crank but YES as Concept says, This Delta has a lot of potential when worked out coreectly<img src=/images/forums/snitz/thumbup.gif width=25 height=18 border=0>
(I translated few lines from GKMania..)

Oh by the way did I mention this thing costs around 800 CAD (500USD)?<img src=/images/forums/snitz/guns.gif width=33 height=16 border=0>
But seems like good replacement especially with such a small modding and big gains..<img src=/images/forums/snitz/approve.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>
