they're so stupid, I give them the strange styling just cause I don't think it was a good transition from the 1st to 2nd gen tibs, but that's personal opinion, but come on, <b>anemic</b> 4 cylinder, that's why our engines have more power stock, except for that v-tec crap that doesn't kick in till the car is at 4.5k rpms or so... whatever <img src=/images/forums/snitz/moon.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>

uhm.. i dont really see anything wrong with saying hyundai makes anemic 4cyl's stock. imo they do too. unless you find high 15 - low 16 sec 1/4's fast...

imo there are hardly any strong Naturally aspirated 4cyl's. some of the only exceptions being the lotus and b18 series engines.

Well the point is that they did not make it sound that way. They made it sound like only hyundai had week 4 cyl engines when the Tib infact has one of the stronger n/a 4cyl engines on the market. And as far as price goes I have not found anything more powerful that handles better. (IMO)

The hyundai engines are anemic for their displacement. Yes, the 2.0L is more powerful that the hondas (except for the Si), but the Hondas are 1.6's!!!! The HP per Liter is what makes it anemic. Hell, the 2.7 L is even worse by those standards. Nissan managed comparable numbers with a 2.5L 4 cylinder! (V-spec Sentra), and honda's Type R 1.8L still has more HP that the tiburon 2.7 V6.

Yes, the motors are anemic for their displacement....deal with it.<img src=/images/forums/snitz/oogle.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>

compared to honda the motors are anemic. But hyundai 2.0L had more power than the mazda 2.0L in the protege 5 and the standard protege got only 130HP, the 1.8L beta got 130Hp so mazda is more anemic <img src=/images/forums/snitz/approve.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>
toyota 1.8L (non vtti) i think is 125HP
the mitsu lancer is 2.0L SOHC and only have 120HP <img src=/images/forums/snitz/uhh.gif width=15 height=15 border=0> well the hyundai motors aren't anemic at all <img src=/images/forums/snitz/tongue.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>

Code your right on most of the numbers. Well close enough anyway <img src=/images/forums/snitz/laugh.gif width=15 height=31 border=0>

I will agree, as long as Hyundai is not using Variable Valve Timing, I think they have some pretty damn good engines.

I will complain still, the 2.7L is still disappointing by my standards. They should still be pulling AT LEAST 195hp. Hell look at VW pulling 200hp out of a 2.8L. Then you look at their crappy 2.0L and they are killing Hyundai with this V6. Thats absolutely ridiculous to me.

VW 2.0L - 115hp 122 lbs-ft
HMC 2.0L - 140hp 133lbs-ft

VW 2.8L V6 - 204hp 180ish lbs-ft
HMC 2.7L V6 181hp 170whatever lbs-ft

Yeah but VWs are heavy ass bastards.

I think the point has been made that we are definately not on the top of the automotive industrry when it comes to hp vs displacement but at the same time we are no where near the botom.

Don't be dissapointed in the V6 Tib yet. After all it did beat the 200hp RSX by several car lengthes at SEMA. Hyundai must be doing something right.<img src=/images/forums/snitz/thumbup.gif width=25 height=18 border=0>

Ya but you keep saying that. I want to see some numbers!!! <img src=/images/forums/snitz/tongue.gif width=15 height=15 border=0><img src=/images/forums/snitz/tongue.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>

I m wondering though if it was APC Tiburon V6 vs the RSX-S aka a modded APC Tiburon V6 vs a stock RSX-S.

Cause really thats what it sounds like right now.

APC did the testing, but how do we know they did run stock vs stock? That hasn't been determined as of yet.

Besides Honda used so much noise dampering on the RSX-S that there are dyno charts that are claiming 12-15hp with a short ram air intake. Something that the V6 will probally be performing too with a similar mod.

Code-

Heck you can add in even more motors....

the Ford Focus Zetec 2.0L at 130 HP!
The Chevey Cav/Sunfire 2.4L at 150 HP


The probelm is they are still anemic compared to the "standard" that honda/Toyota and BMW have set.

BMW has recently raised the bar even higher with their new Variable Valve system (Check latest issue of SCC for the details of it). It is good enough that BMW did away with the Throttlebody completely, and just adjusts engine power/rpm by adjusting valve timing and lift, and their current Double VANOS system was damn good, better that hondas Holy VTEC.

For Toyota's, the Non VVTLi 1.8 is 140. That is the base celica engine with VVTL, the 180 1.8L is the VVTL-i engine. The 1.8L engine in the Corrola is de-tuned via the ecu to 125 from 140, but it is still VVTL.

The moral of the story the motor is anemic for the displacement, as is the mazda, ford, chevy..etc..etc..etc.. Of course, Hyundai is the only company that ever get's ripped for it.

Smiley, the Tiburon V6 and the RSX-S both had APC exhausts, other than that they were stock.

Has Hyundai USA finalized the hp and torque of the new Tib V6? It seems that every new article I read hints that it will have more than the 181/177, but that's it...just a hint, and that the engine is from the Santa Fe, but will be slightly different.

It is confirmed by Hyundai that its the same as the Santa Fe/Sonata engine (V6).

So it was a test I guess of which is the better exhaust. I m still a bit optimistic about the Tiburon. I mean the real power etc. Sure the torque is there, but that weight is still a bit frustrating.

I still am going to get one and if its too slow I guess I will just have to make it faster.

V-Spec was only $100 a year more then what I m paying for my Sonata though which is extremely interesting.
