Hey this is Mike,

im brand spankin new to this whole forum thing but a buddy of mine told me to try it so here i am,, anyways getting to the point.. i have a 2004 hyundai tiburon GT 2.7 V6.. Now i was reading about how a supercharger is the way to go vs a turbo but someone said unless i go twin turbo... now my question is, could i trust in installing a universal twin turbo kit vs one that is more made for the vehicle? and another question is where/what web sites can i go to to find the write performance parts such as superchargers and twin turbos?? if someone can help me out id highly appreciate it! thanks!

~Mike~

There are so many different key factors that go into deciding whether which is a better option via supercharger or turbo. The turbo has just as much potential, if not more, than a supercharger. I won't go into details since there are tons. If you decide to turbo, single turbo is the option you would wanna go, unless you are very good with fabrication. There is only one known twin turbo v6 tiburon and another in progress that is not completed. I would not recommend a twin turbo. The sight you are looking for is called new tiburon.com

EDIT: Keep in mind, one of the main reasons people like to go with superchargers over turbos for the tiburon is the ease of installation. Tiburons lack space. With superchargers, its more of a bolt on process than a turbo. Sights to check are importshark .com - they offer all of the name brand pre-fabbed forced induction kits including all of NGM's kits. Another is hyundaihouseofpower .com - another forum sight dedicated to tiburon owners and NGM's products. It's a gold mind for forced induction info. One last one, as stated above is newtiburon .com - this is another forum sight dedicated to everything known about the tiburon.

I personally like superchargers on V6s more than turbo, but as Canonman said, it really is about what you are looking for and there is many details to consider. I 100% agree though that a twin turbo would not be a good option at all. The Tiburon is only a 2.7L (barely bigger than a typical large 4 cylinder) so a single turbo would provide a perfect amount of boost for the car. There is a prefab turbo kit out there made by NGM and they also make many supercharger options for the car. Building your own kit and buying the custom turbo manifold from NGM would probably be much cheaper than the prefab they have offered. Like I said, I am a supercharger fan on the V6s though just because of the instant hp boost when you hit the pedal. Unless your Tiburon is highly modified, either option isn't really necessary at this time. If you are looking to do either option, you need to consider whether or not your transmission and drivetrain can handle it. If you have a manual, there is a good chance your clutch is not rated to handle the torque increase and would go out fairly quickly. You will also need larger injectors for either option. Just do the research on what other Tiburon owners have replaced before hand, or had to replace due to the forced induction causing problems. The last thing you want is to be at 8lbs of boost, hammer it, and something blow up or break because the car wasn't prepared for it. I hope all goes well for you though!

Dear Mikey,

You already have some good advice. You need to know the weakness in any engine you are going to mod, and the 2.7 Delta weakness is the crankshaft journals. This effectively limits your horsepower to about 350 hp unless you rebuild the lower end with race components. See NGMhouseofpower.com.

I also recommend against a twin turbo because 1) expense 2) weight 3) can accomplish the desired boost with a single Garrett T32. You will need to plan for larger fuel injectors, larger fuel pump, after-market fuel pressure regulator, and a remap of your fuel profile map. Bear in mind that you need to do the complete install at one time, and plan $4-$5K. You will also need a racing clutch like Fidanza or ACT to go over 300hp.
