Noob question and i could probably search it but dont even know where to begin to be honest....i have a 2004 GT V6 Auto, Looking into Forced Induction or maybe anything to be honest, im just looking where to start everything i have is stock and looking for a place to begin
Begin with your basic bolt-ons. I'll list a good starting point to begin with. Just remember, IT IS NOT CHEAP! So plan ahead and decide for yourself whether you think it's worth it or not. My mods are in my signature if you're curious to what I have.
Since you have an automatic, you don't need to worry about upgrading clutches and flywheels, so that alone saves a lot of time and money.
The most common mod people do first is an aftermarket air intake. Either a Cold Air Intake or Short Ram
will do, these can go anywhere from $50-250.
You will need an aftermarket exhaust
to open up all of that air that's being restricted by our stock one.
You can find a decent catback exhaust on the for sale section usually, or buy a brand new one from $300-1200.
will additionally open up all of that restricted air, they also weigh A LOT less than stock ones. You definitely don't want to buy cheap ones (eBay, etc) as word has it that they have horrible fitment issues, usually so bad that you need to put a dent in one of the runners. I'd recommend the DCSports 3-1 headers. Those go for around $200-400 depending on condition, whereas ARK's headers are well over $1,000.
Depending on which supercharger setup you want to go with (used Alpine/NGM/RIPP's Centrifugal setup), a Big Bored Throttle Body
(60-70mm) will also increase the amount of air flow.
I got a used one on the For Sale section for around 300 bucks.
If you're feeling lucky, you can try and contact TC from Next Generation Motorsports [NGM] (firstname.lastname@example.org). TC created our Sniper and Assassin supercharger kits. Be aware though, many have not had their parts shipped from him and phone calls/emails weren't being replied to until recently due to some personal issues. My advice would be to email him about everything you have planned for your Tiburon, ask any questions, as he knows our cars inside and out, and see what he has to say. At the moment, he is the only person providing these supercharger kits for our cars, and a lot of us have to rely on him staying in the Tiburon market.
A stage 0/1 Sniper supercharger kit can set you back anywhere from $2,000-3,000 depending on condition and what's sold with it. Brand new from TC will set you back around 3,500 dollars. If you plan on going forced induction, I'd recommend you start small and build up progressively.
Also, upgraded suspension (springs/struts/coilovers) is highly recommended.
KYB Struts costed me I think $300-400 and Megan Lowering Springs set me back about $150 for a set.
It adds up pretty quick, man. You'll save a bunch of money installing everything yourself, which will in time benefit you with knowing more about your own car.
