I am new to Tiburon performance parts. I have searced the net and have found very little. I was wondering if anyone can give me some advice/links to some good Tiburon sites. Money is no option. I wanna make Honda drivers wish they were in a Tibby.

Welcome to the site! Good to see another first generation tib owner. Yeah basically, general aftermarket for our cars sux! Well, they're hard to find. You gotta know the right places and people. And you've definately come to the right place. Check out those links from Rudy, definately the best. If you're looking for a different engine or tranny, your best bet is to either wait for 2003 tiburon w/ the V6 2.7 ltr and the 6 speed or go to a performance shop that will customize your gear. <img src=/images/forums/snitz/thumbup.gif width=25 height=18 border=0>

Pretty much everthing you need is available. There are just not a whole lot of choices in brands but most the brands we do have to choose from are good quality.<img src=/images/forums/snitz/thumbup.gif width=25 height=18 border=0>

There realy is no engine that can be swapped into your car right now cause you have the most powerful engine that fits in there. Even the new tib V6 and 6spd tranny will not fit cause the 4cyl and v6 will be on different sub-frames. The 4cyl will still come with the Elantras subframe where the the v6 will have the Sonatas subframe.

Good luck with your car. <img src=/images/forums/snitz/thumbup.gif width=25 height=18 border=0>

BTW out of those links that Rudy gave you I recomend that you stay away from HDK<img src=/images/forums/snitz/disapprove.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>

You can go fast and cheap, but it won't be reliable. You can go fast and reliable, but it won't be cheap...or you can do cheap and reliable. Your choice.

If money is no object...you can have a 600 HP tiburon, upgraded axles and clutch, with a LSD to handle the power, plus a decent suspension to handle the speeds, plus a big brake kit to stop when done, for about $15,000. Properly run and properly maintained, it should be good for an occasional car, but not for a daily driver.

For a daily driver, I reccomend you go the same route RED is taking. Only about 300 to 350 HP, but more reliability, and easier to daily drive the car.

What you really need to do is make some plans. You need a HP goal, and you need to decide how you want to get there. Nitrous, Supercharger or Turbo. Then we can help map out a course for you to take to get there.<img src=/images/forums/snitz/thumbup.gif width=25 height=18 border=0>

yea hp goal is good thing, i'm aiming for 700hp and 750lbs torque at the wheel<img src=/images/forums/snitz/finger.gif width=33 height=15 border=0>

i'd recommend you go the daily driver way, thats what i'm doing, so you can show your sh!t off EVERYDAY when you go to work,movie,etc.
i don't think you'll need more than 300-350hp at the wheel to rip an a$$hole , thats just my take on it

hey random wanna help me map out a plan? my goal is 300 wheel hp and i just got a bunch of books and i know i want a turbo. id also like nos afterwards but im not sure. what i need is a list of what is most important to upgrade before i put a turbo in. right now im getting tires, clutch, aluminum flywheel, and all the necessary ignition components. of course this is after a body kit because i got in a minor accident.<img src=/images/forums/snitz/uhh.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>


<hr width=60% noshade size=1 align=left>i need a raise!

Okay, if you want to get to 300 HP to the wheels.

I would reccomend AGAINST running Nitrous and a turbo. Your better option would be to build up your engine with a boost controler. That way you can run high boost at the track/when you want to, but lower the boost for daily driving.

Your choice of turbo kit, Alpine or the unit that HP.com will be selling soon. For 300 HP to the wheels either would work, but the HP kit has the higher HP potential. 300 would be strecthing the alpine kit, but it is theoretically possible.

Reading is the best thing for you now. It will help you make the right decisions later on down the road. A small turbo like the alpine kit is going to spool fast (I make 9psi at 2500 rpm) but it is going to top out at about 20 psi) The more boost you run, the more it will heat the compressed air to the point that more boost will not make more HP...only detonation.

A larger turbo, like the kit that UFB is talking about can easily handle more boost, but it will spool up slower. However, there are things you can do to help it spool faster.

Does anyone know if psi (boost) translates to to a specific horsepower? Say 9 psi would yeild 15 horsepower. Does it work like that? I looking to increase the horsepower in my car, but I have no idea what I can run on my frame (2001 tiburon). I'm considering running a supercharger to get around 300 horsepower.
A friend of mind was telling me that there are differant types of superchargers. Like "roots" and "centrifical", he also mentioned that a "centrifical" supercharger can create more horsepower through use of pulleys, but is much harder to tweak and maintain. Does anyone know what types of super chargers alpine, hp.com, and phantomracing.net sell?

I have a basic plan to upgrade my car listed at

You need to talk to kor-1 to be able to achieve those goals. I hear he has already done it and is running 7sec in the 1/4 mile.

Anything you can read about any forced induction (if you plan on going that route) is a good thing. Browse through old topics. E-mail some of the guys/girls and see what they have to say or know. Reading is what I need to do ALOT more of. Also, check out sport compact car, they have some good reads too.<img src=/images/forums/snitz/thumbup.gif width=25 height=18 border=0>

Lighter flywheels help the ENGINE spin faster due to lower rotional inertia. They do nothing for the turbo. But since the engine is gaining RPM faster, this allows the turbo to spool faster (time wise, not RPM wise).

For example, with my setup, I make 9 PSI at 2500 RPM. With a light weight flywheel, I would still have to wait for 2500 RPM to make 9 psi...but it would happen faster.

There are serveral clutch options available for you Clutchmasters has a stage1 (stock) through stage 5 (Insane), KORE also has 5 stages available. HVE has 2 or 3 clutches, as does RPW. There are also some special clutches available only in Korea, but they are $$$ and intended for drag use only.

For a turbo charged car, I would reccomend the KORE/Clutchmasters stage 3, but that is simply because it is the unit I have, and I am happy with it. Red has the RPW Ceramic unit, and he could give you feedback on that clutch.

Buy the book "Maximum Boost" by Corky Bell. It explans everything you need to know to turbo charge your lawnmower, your Tiburon, or a BMW/Mercedes/Dodge V-12.

What else do you want to read about? I can reccomend several books on various topics. Do NOT expect to find a "tiburon tuners handbook". Hyundai's are not sold in sufficent volume, or tuned in sufficent volume, to make such a book worth publishing.

random do you know how much whp your tib is running? the goal i have for my 2k1 tib is to be able to hang with/stomp a 00-01 vette (stock) would 300whp suffice... what would i be looking at ca$h wise? (even though its all done on a gradual basis, so that really doesn't matter lol)

I reccomend you read Maximum Boost by Corkey Bell.

There are no hard and fast rules that says 10 PSI = 30 HP. There are just too many variables in the HP equasion. Compression ratio, Intercooler efficency, Compressor efficency, ambient air temp, engine tuning...etc..etc..etc..

Getting 300 HP out of a Beta motor with a supercharger would be DAMN hard. You would need to use a centrifical supercharger, as the current Roots type supercharger for the beta motor are just not designed to move enough air for 300 HP. A centrifical supercharger is basically half of a turbo, driven by a belt of the engine crank. In order for them to work, they need to be spinning at least 50,000 RPM to START making boost, and upwards of 120,000 RPM for serious power. Since your belts don't move that fast, they are driven of internal gears. The belt turns a pulley, then internal gearing multiplies the speed of the pulley up to the stratsopheric RPM levels needed by the centrifical supercharger. This creates DRAG on the engine...lots of it, so for each HP the supercharger makes, it is eating some of it to keep the supercharger spinning. centrifical units have more "drag" than "roots" type superchargers. Also, centrifical superchargers are usually only effective within certian RPM ranges (depending on the size of the unit you choose). This means that you wont see much of a gain untill the centrifical superchager spins up to the right speed. The advantage of the centrifical supercharger is that they can be adapted to just about any engine, and allow the use of an aftercooler (intercooler to most people).

There are NO commercially available supercharger kits in the USA at this time. RimmerSuperchagers did sell an eaton "roots" style, but they have since gone out of business. Twice.

You can order the Alpine Supercharger from South Africa, which is also an eaton "roots" type. You can also order the AutoRotor Twin Screw "roots" type supercharger from C.A.P.A. In austraulia. However, both would probably not get you to 300 HP. C.A.P.A. also sells centrifical superchargers, so they would be the place to start if you are really set on using a centrifical supercharger.

If your goal is really 300 HP, I do reccomend a turbocharger rather than a supercharger though. Especially for a daily driver. centrifical superchargers tend to be really "peaky". meaning their power comes on suddenly, and sharply. This makes driving the car in anything but a straight line somewhat difficult.

If you want questions answered on the various turbo and supercharging kits, I do suggest you e-mail or call the various manufacturers, as they would know their product best. Just feel free to use the forums as a reality check on the claims and such made by the various companies. Alpine claims over 250 Wheel HP on their turbo kit. Yet with their kit, which was installed by Alpine, I only showed 174 HP and 173 torque at the wheels.
