If I got CAI and exhaust on the tib could it be faster than the general population of stock v6s?


I know there isn't one answer but I'm hoping the general question can be answered.

if yours is an i4.. no. it'll be quicker yes. but probably not enough to beat V6s. you might notice like an 8-12WHP gain.

Depends on the tranny of the V6.

Hyundai made 60% auto trannies and the rest were manual(5-6sp). They sold and made 20,000 tiburon a year in the v6 trim in the U.S. There are 25,000 people on this site and 87 percent have mods. Given 10% of the remaining population mods their tibs brings the grand total to 15250 people have modded tibs. Minus 40 percent auto(manual N/A trumps) brings your total to about 9000 tibs that are faster than you.

Answer, YES!


9000 over 120000(total US sales from 02-09) = top 13 percent minus driver error and track condition and altitude.


I pulled this out of my rectum BTW....

nice white txt... lol
the V6 has about 175 BHP and the i4s are somewhere around the 140s.. so an extra 10-15 BHP isnt really gonna make that much of a difference.

and you dont seem to realize that the autos are capable of higher top speeds. and at higher horsepowers, they become faster then the 5 and 6 speeds due to higher gearing,

AUTOS FTW!!! lol.. sorry.. i had to represent...

no adding a CIA will only give you 1whp....thats like taking your back seats out and saying you are going to beat most v6 out there.

You really fell off the reservation after your first paragraph hehe.
I know you love your auto, but it can't run with a manual naturally aspirated with a good driver. (ends discussion on this topic)

i know your new and all but please stop talking out your bum....

the autos gear ratios are different then the manuals.. they have a higher top speed and a way larger first gear.. yeah N/a there really is no comparrison, but once you get around 250+ HP the gear ratios start working in the AUTOs favor. and they become faster then the manuals.

EDIT: sorry if i came off a bit rude. i really meant no offense by that. just lettin you know im not a total idiot.

I know more about the tiburon than you'll ever know.
That being said, he was talking about staying naturally aspirated with mods. So I made that statement in terms of transmissions.
Just keeping in real bro, no harm done.
