Well, to the satisfaction of many of you, I'm sorry to say I have finally pushed my tibby to it's limits...and beyond. Saturday while racing onto the highway, a large "pop" was thrown from the engine and it felt like I ran something over. Now the tib shakes, idles fuked up, and has very little low end power. It also has yellowish fluid on the inside of the oil cap on the valve cover, brought it to the dealer and they replaced the plugs and wires and a purge valve. Little do they know its most likely the exhaust valve is bent or broken from the constant abuse and use of nitrous. I have learned a good lesson here and that our cars are not that strong when abused. Word to wise stay away from nitrous. I use to think it was great but not when you have no car. So now they have to take it apart and find out what it is. I pulled the nitrous system out sunday and now I have to put it all back to stock. Lots of wasted money. I am going to trade it in before something very large blows up.<img src=/images/forums/snitz/disapprove.gif width=15 height=15 border=0><img src=/images/forums/snitz/angry.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>

Any car you race, will give you trouble over time. Its not just Hyundai, any car that is pushed to its limits constantly will eventually give up and **** will start breaking. Im against Nitrous oxide because it will destroy your engine over time. I have seen it happen. Just be glad your whole engine isn't ruined.

How much nitrous were you using?

Nitrous is damaging to any motor if you use it enough and enough of it.

well I was only using the 55 shot. But since july I have used probably 4 tankfuls. Now I'm just pissed cause i wish i never did it. and the dealer is blowing it off. I don't think they want to help. I think I'm gonna take all my parts off, sell them and get a nice simple car. Rims and tinted windows, and call it a day. Modifing cars is fun but very costly.

Uh...if you have whieish crap in your engine oil, coolant is leaking into your oil. That's NOT GOOD.

Sounds like your tibby may be on it's last legs.

Nitrous is safe when installed properly, and used properly.

How many shots did you get out of your tank?

You can get an engine, ECU, and trany from KORE for $1000. You may be able to get just an engine a lil cheaper. Dan will get you one with low miles.<img src=/images/forums/snitz/thumbup.gif width=25 height=18 border=0>

Well I got kinda good news. I was at the dealer today and he told me to take off all my mods and bring the car back. So I just got done leaving it off at the dealer. He said not to worry he will take care of it and warrenty it. Hes really cool about it. I'm pretty sure its the intake or exhaust valve. I found oil in the air intake. and when you open the valve cover moisture pours out like its a fuking erupting volcano. <img src=/images/forums/snitz/cry.gif width=16 height=16 border=0> So now it's back to a plain ol' tibby. And yes I am selling all my mods. bbt,nitrous,cai,header,strut tower braces front and rear, short shifter,shark racing euro lights, and guage pod with air/fuel meter and vaccum. If you interested let me know other wise there going on ebay.I am trading the car in as soon as i get it back.<img src=/images/forums/snitz/cry.gif width=16 height=16 border=0>

I would be interested in your BBTB, headders, and gauge pod with gauges...

Could you send me an e-mail with individual prices for each? For the right price I may just get all three!<img src=/images/forums/snitz/thumbup.gif width=25 height=18 border=0>

[email protected]

btw... What BBTB do you have? Is it a machined stock unit? Also... What headders do you have? SR, HVE? 4-2-1, 4-1?
Do you have a high flow cat with those headders?
