Hey guys,
I just got a 2001 beater tiburon off of Facebook for $500 with hopes to either fix it up and sell it or make it my daily driver. Problem is, the people I got it from cut the cats off, including the one in the exhaust manifold. They did a horrible job and as a result I’m gonna need a whole new exhaust manifold, cat, pipe, the whole nine yards. They didn’t even bother to just unbolt it! I was wondering if I could get one off of an old accent/Elantra etc since tiburons are few and far between where I live, or if I’m just gonna have to pay up and buy a replacement online. Any insight is greatly appreciated. Beater pictured below

At this point I'd just get an aftermarket header and no cats. Because if you go through the trouble of getting all new OEM-grade components...well let's just say it wouldn't be worth it for a $500 beater.

As I said, aftermarket header is probably the way to go which you might still be able to find online. Perhaps an OBX set.
But yes, any Hyundai with the Beta 1 or Beta 2 engine shares the same exhaust manifold setup (to an extent besides the flexpipe which may vary in length depending on car/year).

Thanks for the reply! I’m sure other people don’t wanna bother answering my dumbass questions haha. I ended up ordering an OBX header and saving some money! I’m sure my neighbors will appreciate that 😬
