So I have had my 97 accent GT 1.5 5spd for a couple years now and I love it. I've been researching a little recently and from what I can tell I can swap my 1.5 for a g4gf 2.0. Can anyone tell me how much modifications I would need to do? It all seems to be bolt in for the most part.
Will I need to make custom motor mounts? I plan on buying the g4fg from a wrecking yard and rebuild it, so I'd love to get my hands on any internals I can find for a reasonable price. Any information you all could provide me would be wonderful! I got too many people I know with Honda's, so I'd like to give them a little surprise with my Hyundai. smile.gif
Welcome to the Club! That sounds like a pretty ambitious project right there. I'm not sure anybody in the Club has attempted that before, but there might be a couple of guys that can steer you in the right direction. Good luck!
Welcome to the club! You're out of my league on the questions, but there are some people here who might be able to help.
what engine is that from? mitsu engine?

the australians are the specialist for those model years...
Thank you all for the welcome! The G4GF is the 97-2001 Elantra / Tiburon 2.0 DOHC, I already found one here for $300 in a wrecking yard, I just need to save up and hope it doesn't disappear.

So far I have yet to read that the 2.0 beta wont match up to the Alpha 5 spd. Looks like I will have to get the Beta Clutch for it too, and Elantra / Tib ECU and wire harness. I think at this point I will probably just pick up the motor and start rebuilding it. I'll keep you updated as this will be done over the course of the year as I have money to do so. That little car is going to go from 92 hp to 140 hp from the swap! Maybe more after porting. I plan to do exhaust and intake eventually too. My hope is to get as close to 200 hp as possible and stay naturally aspirated, as turbo I have little to no experience with and it just sounds expensive. I appreciate your replies all! Wish me luck! smile.gif
