Shawn, how "fast" is the Tiburon GT 6 speed? It shouldn't be that much faster I bet. Yeah, I was surprised when he said he would have 318hp. He will have added 146 hp. Seemed kinda high to me, but he is getting a chip and NOS too. But his torque is probably 200lb/ft. tops

I still don't know why he'* putting all his money into this. If I had an extra $10,000 to spend on a car, I'd have one incredibly friggin fast SSEi.

Hahaha. "Almost 200hp" That'* so dumb to say. Sounds retarded. It has 172 (or177) That'* far from 200

My cousin got a Tiburon and the friggin clutch went at a couple thousand miles Good thing for that 100,000 mile warranty.

16.1 in the 1/4, 0-60 in 8.0 seconds.

Really, $10,000 would buy a LOT of mods.

Yeah..he said he'* put about 8-10 Grand into it (by the time he'* done) Forgot to mention though, some of that money went to a DVD player that is also a rearview mirror ($800-900), Carbon Fiber engine dress up kit, strut bar, graphics, 3 underbody neons, two interior neons, AEM intake ($400), etc, etc. I'm not sure if he'* really going to have that much money put into it, but a lot of the money spent is on vanity and non-performance type goodies, and he went for the most expensive intake and exhaust.

Did I mention this guy is 61 years old.

He'* a cool guy. Likes cars and "suping" them up, but he said he was going to get a Mustang. Then he showed me a few months ago his new Tiburon. I was like... , ummm, why did you get THAT!
