Building a 06 hyundai tiburon

Asked by Jul 03, 2015 at 04:57 PM about the 2006 Hyundai Tiburon GT LTD

Question type: Car Customization

Anyone have any good ideas, or things to look out for when i start building my tiburon.
Some friends were trying to convince me into just buying a 300zx and building it. but for
the same price as that car i can buy and install a NGM supercharger. so i think thats the
route i'm going to go, if anyone has any tips or know where to get decent parts that would
be much help.

The best thing to do is have your cylinder head modified by a machine shop head service. Porting, & matching to the intake, polishing, bigger valves,, springs, etc. This Super head will need a racing camshaft too. I don't know what's availible for Hyundai. Crane cams can hard face over-lay on your stock camshaft & grind & reprofile the cam lobes. Of course all these mods will need more fuel to make more hp, like a bigger mm throttle body & tube headers. I went from a 57mm to a 62mm on a Mini Cooper-S. And or use a turbo charger? Sounds like a killer Tiburon huh? Good luck.

The special JCW (John Cooper Works) Mini-S uses a optional modified racing cylinder head & is good for much more hp over stock form, see?

Maybe have your Super Cylinder Head built first & set aside untill convient to switch & install it later. Then you will have 2 cylinder heads 1 stock & 1 racing.

Romeo Ferrari in Italy modifies the 1.4 lt Fiat engine cylinder head & gets 300-500 hp ! See?
