  12. Engine Swap

    Tiburon General Discussion
    My basic plan is to swap in an rb26dett, any thoughts or opinions? I'm also going to add on a super charger tuned up to about 6psi, the turbos I'm going to tune up to about 22 psi each. I know the space might be tight but how much modification do you think I'll need to do to the engine bay?
