Funny little story (Cavy vs. S/C Tiburon)

I got this in an email from my brother. I just cut and pasted:

Last night on my way to the work meeting I lined up with a new 4cyl
Tiburon. Being me I decided to mess with him, it was only a 4cyl. I
take him by about a car and a half off the line and.....WHEEEEEEE he's
got himself a supercharger.....oops. His car sounded like crap and
you coulda smoked him but not the ol cavy. It was fun though.

What's funny is that my bro's 2002 Cav LS is bone stock and has enough punk rock stickers covering the back window to be a visibility hazard. Not to mention the 1/4" plugs in his lobes

lolll hey at least he told ya what really happened and not "i smoked that biatch" .

just a FYI.. i havent heard to many bad things bout tiburons.. but my friend Tina has one.. 4 yrs old bought brand new.. last week she got her trans replaced for the 2nd time!!..n she drives like a grandmother..doesnt beat it at all..so from that i assume them to be CRAP.

Don't Kia's have a 10/100,000 warranty?

Yea the 4 cylinder tiburon even with a supercharger isn't anything great, the tiburon GT v6 with a supercharger is pretty darn fast (low 14's if tuned properly). Good story though. I like the wheeee, i usually say: vreeeeeeeeeeee-huhm. Then again, the only time i every say that is when I'm talking about an 04 cobra :P

Gotta disagree with you there, Hyundai also has the 10/100K warranty. Hyundai and Kia are more or less the same (like Ford/Lincoln/Mercury) When I did the 1st oil change on my Tib, the oem oil filter had Hyundai and Kia stamped on it. I think Hyundai saved Kia's ass financially in the recent past. I don't think there is a supercharger kit out for the I4 Tibs, I do know that there are a few turbo kits for them. There are a couple S/C kits out for V6's, and a turbo in development. Maybe it was a debadged S/C V6?
