I believe it's from a Tuscon, but not 100% sure.

Yeah can't you just bolt the Tuscon tranny on? I was under the impression that the cars are based on the same design and the trannies are basically interchangeable...

the tuscon and tiburon have the same exact chasis your best bet would be to get a used AWD tuscon then swap bodies with the tib and put in a after market suspension and brakes. The conversion isnt that hard but its also no over night project. The total price would come to be about 6-7K if done by yourself. in comparison to mods on other cars its not that bad.
