This is my 2003 Tiburon with a custom turbo kit. It has quite a few custom modds. I have owned it for 6 years and have been modding it for 5. Thank you for lookin at it and I hope you like her.

First off I have some dues that need to be paid:
Billy at Nemesis Motorsports did the custom paint and custom down/up pipes for my turbo kit. Thanks to him this car was able to win 1st place custom tiburon at nopi nationals in 2007 as well as other car shows with the old paint. He did a great job and deserves alot of credit for gettin me started. Thanks alot man for everything.
Chris (MinesBetter) Valdez for all the help, info, and ideas for the car. He has always answered any question I had and put me in my place from time to time. Some of his ideas still have not been done but Im sure when I get to them the outcome will be as good as the other ideas that have been. Thanks man for always being there to help me.
TC at NGM has made top of the line products for this type of car and I have had the pleasure of buyin some of the best and will continue it till the car is gone, lol. Thanks for all the hard time you have thrown at these cars and I can't wait to see what the future holds.
Scotty at Digital Box Tuning for making sure the car is running properly and is where it should be. I know you have not had a chance to actually play with the car but one day soon you will and we will see what great things you can do for a hyundai.
James at Mainstram Performance for all the custom work and fabrication that you have done to help me out. Also for putting up with all my questions and helping me figure stuff out.
All my family and friends for their influences and opinions to make this car what it is now and hopefully make it better in the near future. I will always be with all of you no matter what happens and will ride with all of you till the day I die.

This bodykit is now just layin in my buildin. It will find a new home one day, lol.
After: Second Bodykit and Paint Job
The first time out of the paint both was at night and the other 2 pics are from 2 different shows.
A few pics of my brother's car and mine hangin out. Some other friends are there 2.
Now it's down at the shop gettin the motor built alttle better. I will keep you all posted.
Well the NGM 360cc injectors are now fully in. Time to get rid of that crappy FMU, lol.
The new engine piggyback is here also. Fully tuned map ecu-1 fuel tuner so no timing advancing or retarding yet.
My new KDM Door Handles and Emblem Set came in. Should go good with the turbo embem.
NGM 70mm Tri-Flo BBTB came in. Another toy to put on before we are finished.
Triple A-Piller gauge pod is here. (I know it's a dark pic i will put up more later after install)
AEM 6-1 Gauge Type UEGO Wideband. My 2nd of my 3 gauges to fill the pod.
Well I got hooked up yesterday I was very pleased when these arrived. The new setup is almost complete.
First is the Stage IV fully cnc'd and ported lower IM.
Here's the new turbo. There's a big difference from old to new.

It's either towards the end of 2012 (when the world is suppose to end lol) or 2013. The whole time I've been over here, I was saving just about every nickle and dime I received so I can dump it into both cars. I had the Tib painted candy paint blue, but I didn't like how that turned out. Even my friends say "...it looks rather too friendly instead of looking dark like you had it the first time..." I agree. So I'm getting it repainted for the 3rd time now.
Sounds like a plan then, bro. I can't wait to get back on US soil (yeah, deployed again) so I can drive either cars. I miss driving them a lot man.
Hey dude, it's been forever since I've heard from ya man! I see you really did put all factory bumpers back on the ride like you said a few years ago. LoL If you put lights in your interior, you might as well bring the sexiness back with the white/blue theme paint job too. How's the Tib running these days?
Good to see you still at her!!..Funny, my stage 3 clutch gave out at exactly 303 hp on the dyno as well lol.....Get some slicks on her and feel it kick you in the ass at the track!!...sweet build man!
Thanks man. There is something going on with the tune so I'm hopefully heading to the dyno Thurs to get it straightened out and do some more pulls while I am at it.
