2003 Hyundai Tiburon GT - Tour
***THIS VIDEO IS OUTDATED. FOR AN UPDATED VIDEO OF MY OLD '03 TIBURON, GO
TO THIS LINK: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vdWmhI5VaWY
A simple tour of my new (not really new, but you know hat I mean) '03
I purchased it February 13th, 2012. It is a V6, 2.7L engine with 172 horsepower. It's a
very fun ride and an amazing head turner. Some of the things I've done so
far include (some of the things done were done after this video was made):
new rims, 20% tints, new gas/brake pedals, exchanged the low rise spoiler
to the OEM high rise spoiler, DIY subwoofer black/green cable swap,
installed 8000k HIDs (low beams and fogs), and replaced the floating H's
with Tuscani badges.
There's a lot more that I intend to do with the car, but like with all
things, that requires money. So, when I have some decent cash put away I
will move on to the next steps (OBX Type-R catback Exhaust, OBX Headers, an SRI/CAI, angel eyes,
Also, here's an album on Facebook of my Tiburon that I have set to Public

2004 Tiburon OBX Exhaust
My 2004 Hyundai Tiburon with an OBX dual Exhaust. Start up, idle, and rev sound.
Most, if not all, of your questions can be found at newtiburon(dot)com.
Exhaust related questions:
Q: What OBX model is that?
A: OBX Type R dual Exhaust, cat-back
Q: Any problems with the cops?
A: No problems with the Exhaust.
Q: Where did you get the Exhaust? How
much did it cost?
A: I bought the Exhaust used (in near
mint condition) from a forum member at the above URL, set me back around
$250 shipped. I think I've seen them on eBay/Amazon around $350
Q: How much did it cost to set the Exhaust (install it)?
A: Only a few hours of my time, did it myself. Not sure what a shop would
charge but it's a basic install with jack stands and air tools.
Q: Did you have to make any modifications or was it a complete bolt-on?
A: It was a direct bolt on with no alterations necessary. Perfect fitment!
Q: What tail lights do you have, where can I get them, etc...?
A: They are stock tail lights from an 05-06 Tiburon blacked out. Not too
dark you can't see the brake lights, just dark enough.
Q: What bumper is that? Where can I get it?
A: The bumper is an AIT GT-Spec bumper (Zefiro Ronda knockoff). Purchased
used from a local member of the forums. Google is your friend here, they
can be found numerous places online. Someone rear-ended me and I got a
replacement straight from AIT, courtesy of the D-bags insurance.
Q: Was the bumper silver when you got it, or did you have to color match
A: Bought new they come primered only, you will have to get them color
Supercharged Tiburon GT - Exhaust cutout Exhaust cutout installed on my
supercharged Hyundai Tiburon GT.
Some will call this "ricer", but i personnaly have a lot of fun with that
mod. I love to be able to switch so easily between a "normal" sound an a
"rally car" sound. Don't ask if performance is better when cutout is
opened, i haven't Dynoed it yet ; it may be, but
not by much, considering the welding shop replaced more of the piping than
planned so it's 2.5" until it splits to the Evofusion dual 2".
5 years ago, i had bought a Evofusion catback. It was ok for NA mods, but
i'm now supercharged, and i'm about to install an even bigger MP90 Supercharger, so that tiny 2.25" catback was
becoming a problem. But i loved its sound and the looks of its tips. So i
had most of the catback replaced by some 2.5" piping, except for the rear
that remained the original Evofusion. I had the Exhaust cutout placed between the 2.5 and the
2.25" section (i had first tried it just after the headers and the sound
was totally unbearable). My objective was to keep a bearable sound when
cutout was opened, thanks to the resonator. But the Magnaflow muffler 10436
muffler proved not to be enough to reduce sound, even with closed cutout,
so i deleted the Hurricane high flow cat and replaced it with a Vibrant
1141 resonator which did quite a good job to bring sound to a more decent
level. The final result, when cutout is closed, is a deeper and a bit
louder sound than with the unmodified Evofusion Exhaust, and a very agressive rally sound when
cutout is opened.
2008 Hyundai Tiburon VS 2010 Genesis Coupe In Depth Review and Comparison, Start Up, and Exhausts
Btw, for anyone wondering, I couldn't find a GT to compare unfortunately,
so I had to take what I could get. Just about everything you would like to
know about the Genesis and the Tiburon, RWD VS FWD, the genesis is an all
new model not related to the Tiburon, it may be the new Hyundai Coupe, but
it did not "replace" the Tiburon as quoted by Hyundai. (Credit 85ZingoGTR)
The Genesis Coupe is larger by 10 inches in comparison to the Tiburon.
Also, the Tiburon is a front wheel drive car targeted towards cars like
Mitsubishi Eclipse and Toyota Celica while the Genesis Coupe was made to
target cars like the Mustang and 370Z. Hyundai plans on
introducing the Veloster to replace the Tiburon and join its larger Genesis
Coupe brother. My main purpose is to show the efforts and strides that
Hyundai has taken for their coupes and performance cars in just a few short
years, not necessarily comparing generations of the same model, which like
I said before, they are not. In this video I give a full in depth tour
review of the 2010 Genesis Coupe 3.8 Grand Touring and the 2008 Tiburon. I
take viewers on a close look through the interior and exterior of these
cars while showing details, over viewing of features, and noting unique
styling cues to the vehicles themselves. I also show the engines and the
details of them, start them up and see how they sound under acceleration. A
thorough tour/review of these cars designed to give others a greater
overall appreciation of the vehicles.
