<BLOCKQUOTE id=quote><font size=1 face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica" id=quote>quote:<hr height=1 noshade id=quote><b>Sport Compact Car, July 2001</b>
Last night, I picked up the May issue of SCC and so far I think it's great, but I have a few questions. First, in the story on the "2001 USCC" and the cars that could be in it, you guys showed a twin-engined 1998 Tiburon owned by Michael McIntyre. This wouldn't happen to be the Tiburon here in El Paso that I'm hearing about?
I've heard about it for almost a year now, everyone is telling me he runs 11s and walks down sport bikes! I remember a turbo Tiburon here (a friend of mine owned it and he worked for Hyundai), but for some reason, Hyundai didn't know what they were doing because they didn't install a blow off valve, I never saw an intercooler and he was running very high boost. The car lasted for about three weeks until the engine blew.

(reply from editor) <i>Also, the Tiburon is indeed based out of El Paso and there's a good chance you'll be seeing more of it in the magazine at a later date.</i>

Hyundai didn't know what they were doing????
Hyundai didn't put the turbo in his car so why would they put a blow off valve and intercooler in it?
It sounds like his friend didn't know what he was doing!
