I did more research and from what I can tell, the DOHC 16v is only used in the 4 cylinder and all the V6 models are DOHC 24v.
Can anyone confirm this?

i just can't figure it out cuz it is cover.
if it is a turbo car, i just have to buy a good turbo.
if it is not then i have to buy turbo kits.
i want to know if it is turbo car.
so i won't spend big money to search for it.

I am trying to get information on changing the spark plug in my V6. I would like to know how you change the back 3 plugs? It looks like I need to remove the top of the intake manifold. If anyone has the necessary information I would appricate it if you could forward this information to me.
#8 of 31 Tiburon Timing Belt
Aug 12, 2007 (8:15 pm)
I have a 2003 Tiburon. No GT and standard transmission. I have 95,000 miles on it. No major problems (yet) except for the #3 and 4 settings on my A/C going out a couple times....which were fixed.
My question(s) is I have yet to have my timing belt changed. From what I am told is that it's not covered under the warranty. Is it bad that I havent had it changed yet? How much longer do I have? Should I get it changed at the dealership? They quoted me $600 to change it, or should I go to a smaller mechanic? What is an average cost to have this done? The large majority of my miles are highway. I drive 85 miles/day to work...75 of which are highway. What would happen if the belt snapped?? Someone told me that if the timing belt snaps on Korean cars than the engine will no longer run, ever.
Please help me with this. I dont make a ton of money and cant afford a new car...at the same time $600 for a new timing belt is extremely steep as well. Any and all advice will help. Thanks!!!

whomever told you that if the belt snaps your engine wont run again should be shot, if your timing belt snaps there is a small posssibility of it hitting minor functioning pieces of the engine. but what will happen when it breaks is your engine will shutdown you will lose all functions throughout the vehicle other than your stereo which will stay with you for a while until your battery is depleted of its power. now dont pay 600$'s for your timing belt to be changed out i work at a small mechanincs and you would be charged about 25$'S for the belt and about 100$'s for the service
dont be fool search around for the best price and quality of product, 600$'s is wayyyyyyyyyyyyyy to much

I have an 03 gtv6 5 spd, with 64000 miles, you are supposed to change your timing belt and tensioner and water pump at your 60000 mile check-up, there is a korean company called seoulful racing that sells a timing belt package for around 300 bucks for the 2.7L and about 200 for 2.0L
A set contains of Timing Belt,Tension Assembly,Idle Pulley,Water Pump Assembly,Water Pump Gasket,Power Steering Belt,Water Pump Belt, and A/C Belt
I suggest doing it all at once if you are doing it at all!
2.7L Timing belt package
2.0L Timing belt package
hope this helps a little or alot...and correct me if im wrong about anything...

It depends if the engine is an interference-engine of not. If it is an interference engine and the timing belt breaks, the pistons are going to smack, yes smack, the valves, bending them and causing major engine damage. Again, everything runs based on a specific amount of space, so if the timing is off due to a jumped cog, or if the belt breaks, the internals will come into contact with each other and the engine will be damaged.
If it is not an interference fit, the valves won't come into contact with the pistons and the valve-train will be ok.
Te $600 cost is not that bad, really. As the others responded, it's mostly the labor in removing all the components to get to belt. Also stated, the common practice when changing out the belt is to replace the water pump. Not that the pump goes bad at the same time, but it's really for insurance. The area is open anyway so might as well replace it; the labor for it should be free or very little. You don't want to do a belt replacement then a month down the road the water pump takes a dump. Then you looking at another huge $$ repair.
Hope this helps.
