    A little Seoulful

    A little history on me. I never had any interest in cars until I was about to graduate from high school. So I was a late bloomer. I spent ten years of my life consumed in basketball. I played all year long in aau leagues, ymca leagues, and school ball. So I never had anytime to take up a serious interest in cars. Everything I know about cars has either been shown to me by my best friend, I've read online, or learned by hand. This is the first car I have ever modified so it's been a learning experience and still is. Now onto the car. It's a 2004 Hyundai Tiburon GT and yes it is an automatic. It is my daily driver/week end car/fun car and / whatever else.

    Lmao thanks! She is no where near done but I appreciate it. The local guys tell me I am the only tiburon owner they like. The rest are usually raising hell (street racing, speeding, or blasting their subs).

    I think you have done a very good job with this car. Typically when you see someone mod one of these cars it is usually very ricer, but you haven't done that at all. Yours is modded very tastefully and personally I think it looks very good. Keep up the nice work man!

    I agree. Tastefully done. Good job sir.

    Thanks for all the compliments guys. I try to keep it "clean". Anyone here with an air suspension? Originally Tein coilovers were the plan. But I think I might go with a K Sport air suspension just so I can adjust the height easier and make it more drivable.

    I wouldn't recommend air ride for a daily driver at all. There is a lot of up-keep involved with air ride.

    Care to elaborate? I haven't looked into it much just a thought.

    Well I got impatient from having a very bad alignment. So I broke down and bought Megan Racing coilovers no they are not the Tein's I was wanting but my impatience and tires meant more.



    She'll get a lower once I get my Ingall's control arms and new tires.



    Well supercharger is finally a part and clean. Now she gets shipped to Cali for some TLC and a make over.

    Code AiR, is there a reason why you didn't add camber up front to tuck the wheels?

    Lol... That wasn't my idea. I am going to lower it a little more when I put on the rear control arms. The camber was the dealership's idea. When I get it re-aligned I am going to try -2 all around or attempt to. I waited four hours so I was just ready to get out of the place.

    Update on OP*

    Finally got my camber arms, lateral arms whatever you want to call them installed on the rear. I am pretty much done with suspension. I might add some stuff to stiffen up the chassis. I can honestly say after dealing with eight hours for the coil overs, and six on the lateral arms I have no desire to do anymore suspension lol. Rust and brake dust killed it for me. So it's time to slam the bish, tuck the wheels in, and call it a day. Side skirts have been ordered too.
