    That should not be a problem at all.

    Unless you are not a very good driver.

    From personal experience they are quick from roll and this guy only had an intake. I think we were almost even when I was stock. So if this guy has an exhaust he might take you from a roll but if you go from a stop an get a good launch he might not be able to catch you.

    ^^^Agreed they are pretty quick cars, but if you're a good driver, you shouldn't have any problems at all...

    I don't see it being faster than 15 seconds with the mods you listed. My stock Tacoma is faster than a stock Tiburon GT

    You should kill it no prob. Never had any problems with them in the civic and the wrx is way faster.

    It's the oldest design in Hyundai's lineup and makes only 170 hp. If and when they do redesign it, you can expect it to receive a version of either the Sonata's 235hp v6 or the Azera's 260hp v6. Either one would be quite potent pared with a 6spd manual.

    At this point, owners wishing to go fast have to do it themselves. There's a decent following at newtiburon.com -- yes, I read lots of msg boards

    my brother has an 03 tib with I/H/E and my stock wrx ate it up, then stage 2 came and

    They are nice cars and have amazing gearing... but gearing isn't enough with no power coming from the block.... R.I.P. El Tiburon
