  1. Problem shifting 2nd to 3rd gear after radiator replacement

    Car Care
    Hi everyone, So I have a 2005 Tiburon GT and recently had an overheating in idle issue. I took it to a mechanic and they said my radiator was leaking.

    I'm so ****ing frustrated right now. I'm trying to replace my radiator. I can't ****ING get the damn clamps to come off the hoses! Firstly, I can barely get channel locks into such a precarious position. Secondly, when I do manage to sorta-kinda get a grip, they won't budge! Any tips?!

  5. Half size civic rad vs full size

    I4 - Forced Induction
    Is the half size civic radiator a good mod? I'm talking about a 2 or 3 row aluminum rad not an oem. I've read a thread in elantraxd about a guy who actually did it and worked great for him and man was there a lot of space in that engine bay after that mod! But he was not boosted, so then I...
  6. Anyone interested maybe??

    Tiburon General Discussion
    I've been talking with a company called Fuku Works about making some radiator hoses, etc for the Tib and haven't been getting very far since they seem to think it would be a small market. Well, after just looking on their FaceBook page, I noticed that they are producing Genesis coupe hoses. I...

    New Member Introductions
    Hello, I'm new to this forum, cars, and my Tiburon (03) lol. I need a new radiator and I was wondering if there is any clear benefit to buying a 100% aluminum radiator as well as silicone hoses to replace the oem ones.

  14. REVIEW: Mishimoto Aluminum Radiator

    Got this the other day and I was quite impressed how well the radiator was packed. First thing to notice is the it is much thicker (dual core radiator) compared to the oem radiator. The whole radiator appears to be man entirely out of aluminum vs the oem which is has plastic end tanks. The...
