1999 Hyundai Tiburon FX 2dr Hatchback
Radiator is crap, it's cracked along the seam. Blown head gasket due to thermostat sticking (according to Hyundai). Starting to get rust around wheel wells and rusting out in tire well. Very pokey til I added a racing exhaust and cold air intake, did a port and Polish on intake and head but haven't tested that yet due to trying to finish up the blown head gasket fix. Paint is faded bad on hood. Do not put a bra on your car !, looks better but kills the paint job as I found out from the previous owner doing so !
The looks from the back of the car.
Buy the standard transmission version. If you want power out of this car you need to first buy a cold air intake, exhaust (after market), big bore throttle body, chip, engine man. System, etc. Will not even spin the tires stock. Pretty weak but good project car.
