I am planning on picking up one of the intake cams here in the future for my Tib and I was wondering which of the cams, the 1.8 cam or the Elantra GT cam, would be the best purchase. If it makes any difference my car is a '98 SE auto with I/E/BBTB. The cams themselves are only $118 and $124, and is it a fairly easy install or are there any special reasons why I should I pay someone to have it done. Any help is appreciated.

I'm planning on getting the 2001 Elantra cam for my 97 FX. The 2001 cam will give you a little more performance than the 1.8L cam. <img src=/images/forums/snitz/moon.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>

Well, this topic is interesting. Can we have someone like Red or whoever give us the low down on the differences between them? (ie. physically and gain wise) I'm sure there's a few people in here that really know what they're talking about! <img src=/images/forums/snitz/smile.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>

Thanks guys!

Tom

otverge, Red has actually expained them several times on this board, TSR and Fxtreme.

Do a search and you should be able to find it.

I am planning on getting the Elantra GT 2001.5 2.0L CAM.
I have a valid question. Everyone is talking about using them in the 2000 tibs and lower.
But the 2000 tibs have Hals not solid lifters. Can you use a solid lifter CAM on a head that has HALs?

Hmmmmm. Am I wrong or do some peeps still think the Elantra GT engine is different from the GLS? The engine,
cams and all, are identical near as I know...2001 and '02 anyway.<img src=/images/forums/snitz/uhh.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>

I know. I have posted that a few times but everyone still puts that it is a GT cam. No wonder people get confused.

As for the cam being used on a head with HLA's. There is not enough of a change that it should not cause any real problems. You are not putting in some big huge lumpy cams, just a little more lift & duration. Red has it in his car nad I think someone else does also. The ESTIMATED gains are about 3-5hp with the 1.8L cam vs. 6-8hp for the 2k1+ Elantra cam. For the same price I would want the extra 3hp or so. I would really like to see someone dyno these.

So do you recommend the 2001 elantra GT Intake cam for the 2000 Tiburon?
My dealer said it would only make a significant difference if you already had better intake (CAI) and better exhaust. I have both and crank pulley as well. Dealer Mechanic said they all would compliment each other.
Then he said "nothing beats nitrous, but it would void warranty for sure"<img src=/images/forums/snitz/smile.gif width=15 height=15 border=0><img src=/images/forums/snitz/tongue.gif width=15 height=15 border=0><img src=/images/forums/snitz/wink.gif width=15 height=15 border=0><img src=/images/forums/snitz/thumbup.gif width=25 height=18 border=0><img src=/images/forums/snitz/finger.gif width=33 height=15 border=0><img src=/images/forums/snitz/moon.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>
