really? If thats the case I had already graduated then... humph... my memory sucks. Well what ever year it was Hyundai, Ford, and probably many more car manufacturers have all done this... didn't dodge under-rate the SRT4? I thought they advertised 215hp and when dynoed they hit ~230 whp? I guess better to under-rate and have a bunch of happy/surprised customers than pissed off ones. I know when when we found out the Tib we bought didn't have the advertised hp Hyundai sent us a check for 500 bucks for some performance bolt ons... hence the CAI.

Hyundai doesn't make a tuscani version for the US, your friend had a regular old Tib with some new badges he bought off the internet... kinda like type-r or svt badges on non type-r or svt cars. It sounds like he had a 4 cylindar auto too.

i think i would of caught him if we would of raced through 3rd gear and i didnt have another person in my car, but i did good.

preatty much the whole race i didnt get out of 2nd gear and he was maybe 1 car length ahead of me and he didnt have anyone else in his car... but oh well i beat one before, guess its really a drivers race :-)

lol I don't know a lot about the Tib. but I do know my buddy's is a 6cyl manual. I'll have to ask him about the Tuscany stuff, it is definitely badged. What unmistakable identifiers are there to the Tuscany... so I can call his bluff if he's lying

Look at the floor mats... sometimes people will make the mistake and forget to buy those also look at his owners manual. But if he did a complete rebadge... he would replace the front hood emblem, rear hatch emblem, rear bubble stickers, steering wheel emblem, floor mats, keys, and if he got the 17's he would have to replace the centercaps on those rims. They do make a 5 speed V6 along with the 6 speed. You can tell by the spoiler also... there are 3 options... none, low spoiler 2-3" high (5speed), high spoiler 5-6" high(sport package 6 speed). Also there is a huge piece of plastic that covers the intake manni with a huge "H" on it.

you know I never even looked at your location... my bad. Yes they are available in Canada... all we get in the US are badges we can order online. Tell you friend that if he's got some extra cash to blow look into Alpine Developments. My bro-in-law and I are installing a turbo kit from them onto his 2001 Tib when he returns from Iraq... its on its way as I type. If his is truly a V6 he needs ALOT of practice driving. The GTV6 6 Speed should be putting down low 15's stock.
