Can anyone tell me which other cars the Tiburon is similar to in power?
While I'm not a kid, I sometimes enjoy "stepping on it" from a light, however, I don't want to make a fool of myself.
Any information will be appreciated.
Thanks,

A good challenge will always be an Acura Integra LS. It has the same horsepower (140) and a little less torque (124).

I drive a slow car.
0 to 60 in 11 seconds (look out!)

Ford focus
Chevy Z24
Nissan Sentra SE
The list goes on and on.

You should be able to beat all those except for the Z24. That will come down to driving ability.

I wouldn't be afraid to put it down up against any car. If you have good driving skills, you can make people stop and think <img src=icon_smile_evil.gif border=0 align=middle> .

I live in Cave Creek, AZ and there are a <b>lot</b> of really nice cars around here. I see everything from Mustang GTs up to Ferrari 360 Modenas! Even up against a Mustang GT, you'll stay close enough that if you catch up to em and they see you're in a Hyundai, their jaw will drop! <img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle>

But the "lesser cars" Ford Focus, Honda anything (except Civic Si and S2000), Eclipses (except the turbos), Toyotas get to look at my rear spoiler <img src=icon_smile_cool.gif border=0 align=middle>. It's especially fun to toast the civics/crxs with the stickers on em. <img src=icon_smile_tongue.gif border=0 align=middle>

I still need to throw on a CAI and raise the bar another notch!

I whoop up on Civic Si's too. I know they are supposed to faster but I guess most peeps don't know how to drive them.

Thanks for all your responses guys.
Do you suggest I NOT run against a new Porche Boxter? <img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle> (just joking)

I'm an OLD GUY, however, I love my Tiburon.

I already did. lol
He handed me my arse but I knew he would.
I just wanted to what he had and how well I could keep up. You could still make a Tib faster for less money.

The cars that were all spoken of would be no problem for you in a race. When you start adding mods like CAI, Exhaust, Headers, BBTB, <b>NOS</b>, ignition, etc...then you can pretty much roll with v6's and v8's. <img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle>
