sort of funny that hyundai usa dealer is asking us about engine info lol. Anyways I have both the XG and the tib and I do not believe parts are readily interchangable between the two motors. XG has bigger injectors.

and then what? what aftermarket world is there for that engine? is there one enough worth to justify the swap or would u be better of using the money for the swap and getting a SC?

yeah but your going ot have to build a custom set up and do all the pipe work and such or pay a shop. I do see the point but $$ vs power... ur better to just assassin SC. Not to mention looking at the XG engine vs tib bay... itll be a tight fit

get a 3.5 and boost it to 15 psi. That should be enough for all you needs. Who cares about aftermarket suport, get things custom made...

If you do some of the work yourself and shop around for parts a custom turbo setup can be pretty cheap. The swap has been talked about before, I think the only problem you'd run into is the electronics part.

yep, you would need a standalone, or a reflashed ecu with most of the engine wireing of a 3.5
