I want to buy a V6 Tiburon and I have a few questions.

  • Is there a specific transmission that I want?
  • Is there a specific year that I want?
  • Is there anything I should specifically look for?

Also, I read that the 2.7 V6 has forged rods. Are the pistons forged as well?

Thanks in advance for any help I can get.​

if u are looking at taking the car to the track and doing a circuit the i would go with the SE it has the best suspention and it is a six speed. the more gears the better, bigger gears put you on lower RPM's and the lower you can keep your RPM at a high rate of speed you will save gas and it won stress your engine as much.

if you are actualy planning to take it to the track manual transmission is 10000000000000 times better then that trip tronic crap.

then again if you have to deal with traffic daily i sugjest auto with the trip tronic crap.

but seriously if you are looking for a fast car hyundai is coming out with the genesis coup, good fun.
