White is my favorite color for the Tiburon and having a turbo under the hood makes it all that more exiting.

Did you have it dyno'd? I've had a Volvo 850R with around 300hp on the front wheels and it was still very driveable, just don't boost it to much in lower gears :D

Thanks! I havent had it dyno'd yet because Im waiting until I can add my intercooler and up the psi to like 7-8psi. Im ballparking 240-250hp at 5psi. Someone else on here had 8psi and was over 300. That 300hp volvo must have been pretty fun too!

Nope didn't get it painted. Stock alpine white color
Really envious of you guys in America, here in the UK it is called a Coupé and isn't available in that colour! Yours looks fantastic with the black trim - perhaps consider plasti-dipping the mirrors and the roof? The contrast might look good. :)

Thank you! Im actually thinking of plasti dipping the gills, middle part of the spoiler, and putting either a black wrap or carbon fiber wrap on the top havent decided. Ill be plastidipping the middle part of the front bumper like some people do and adding a black STI front lip with that

That'll work so well, best of luck! What was it like fitting the universal lip - is it a straightforward experience?

its almost a direct fit but requires a heat gun to slightly modify it to fit.
