I found this info on the new tiburon. If it comes standard with the current tiburon engine and with the top of the line version comes with the santa fe engine, does that mean its possible to do an engine swap with say a 2000 tiburon to the more powerful santa fe engine? just a thought.

"The standard engine in the 2003 Tiburon will remain the 2.0 litre DOHC 16 valve four-cylinder engine found in the current Tiburon. It develops 140 horsepower at 6000 rpm and 133 lbs-ft of torque at 4800 rpm, the same as the current model. This model will offer a standard 5-speed manual transmission or an optional 4-speed automatic 'Shiftronic' transmission which offers a manual, clutchless shifting mode.

The top-of-the-line 2003 Tiburon will be available with Hyundai's all-aluminum 2.7 litre DOHC 24 valve V6 engine that's currently used in the Santa Fe sport-utility vehicle. It will develop 181 horsepower at 6000 rpm and 177 lb-ft of torque at 4000 rpm (the same as the current Santa Fe), but will have different gear ratios, according to Hyundai."

No. The new Tib is complete redesign and shares no similarities with the RD Tiburon. The GK Tiburon uses an Elantra subframe up front for the 2.0L Beta, while it uses a Sonata subframe up front for the Delta V6.

It probably won't even be possible (ease of install, that is) to drop the V6 into an I4 GK Tiburon as the mounting points won't line up.

ya, you can do it. With enough money you can put a porsche twin turbo inline 6 if you want. It all comes down to money. <img src=icon_smile.gif border=0 align=middle>
