Turbo all the way!

Definitely getting the turbo 4. It brings me back to my Ford Turbocoupe T-Bird days. RWD and a turbo 4.

Yup you are correct about the v8 only for the sedan. I think the poll was actually including both the Sedan and Coupe engines. If you picked the V8 you would directly also indicate you would be wanting the sedan. Ya i know not the best poll, maybe we should clarify.. Although on a side note, when talking with one of the Hyundai reps, I asked about a future v8 option for the coupe. He simply said, "You never know!" with a grin.

the main problem for the V8 in the coupe is the engine bay size...at least it is what I heard. I didn't verify those "facts" yet.

Both

As I mentioned before, me & my bro are getting a Coupe each, one with the turbo 4 & the other with the 6cyl. 6cyl will stay relatively stock, except for cold air intake & exaust, the 4 on the other hand will be extremely modified before its over.

Ya I'm going for a turbo 4 as well. I just hope the rumors about the weak tranny are not true cuz I want to get around 350HP out of it!!

Gollum, I'm with you, I was not planning on settling for less than 400Hp, although that much is not probably needed & may create additional traction problems. I just want a Hyundai that is difficult to touch by most other vehicles out there, you know childish bragging rights. I want to show people what Hyundai is capable of. But if what I hear about these trannies is true, they will not hold up to the torque that accompanies that kind of power & I'm not interested in spending the money on a upgraded transmission. As a matter of fact I won't, part of the reason I'm buying this vehicle is the quality & warranty. I know that my mods will void part of that warranty, but I also know that if a defective part is under warranty unless it can be proven that part failed from my mods Hyundai will normally replace it. I want to believe that the clutch is the weak link, but when they are talking about max torque with regards to the tranny, I don't think that includes the clutch. I think I'll pray now.

One thing I do with my cars I modify is wait for a part to need replacing and then replace that part with something aftermarket and performance oriented if possible. This keeps my spending at a manageable pace also. Easy examples of this are air filter/intake, exhaust, brakes, and in your example, the clutch. If you do happen to produce more horsepower than what the stock clutch can handle, then just baby the clutch for a while until it completely burns out. Then replace it with a real clutch and have fun with it!

Ya I'm with you. I'm hoping that the clutch is the weak link. I'm hoping the trannies are like some of the Honda trannies that can take a little bit of abuse. If not I'm hoping that tranny upgrades will be cheap (not cheaply made just affordable). I'm glad to hear that Hyundai usually takes care of the customer too, that is encouraging.
