There are no documented Delta swapped J2s or RDs. I believe one of the reasons is the engine bay is too narrow (slightly smaller than the XD/GK) Plus the Beta holds up to boost really well.

Nice!

I like! Never realized the tiburon console/gauges were plug and play.

i am kinda still interested if you have this? ours has oil starvation for awhile and ticks uncontrollably but still runs well. laugh.gif

not sure we want to spend any more money on this though since i cant even get kristen to put air in the tires :/

it just has to survive 14-15 more months and then we're going to get something else. probably a late 4G or early 5G accent. something for around 5K.

they are not. i am using the dash harness from the tiburton along with its BCM/Fuse panels. no choice but to run them

So the question is would the tiburon center console be a direct bolt on replacement of the elantra center console?

Not exactly.
