This completion report chronicles the project that our car tuning company completed for our customer. At a cost of $9160, we have transformed a stock Hyundai Tiburon, a respectable performer already into a high performance show car.

Figure 1: Stock Tiburon

The Hyundai Tiburon is a 2 door, sporty import car built in Korea. It has 140 horsepower and 133 lbs/ft of torque stock from the factory. Its main competitors are other sporty cars such as the Ford Focus ZX3, Honda Civic, Acura Integra, and Toyota Celica. Some of the appeal of these types of cars is the vast array of aftermarket parts and accessories available to upgrade the performance and personalize the vehicles.

A month ago, you approached our tuning shop regarding a car upgrade project for your Tiburon. You indicated to us that you desired a powerful car that can hold its own against similarly modified competitor cars, yet attractive enough in appearance to appear in automobile shows.

We developed an upgrade plan for your car, which was presented to you in a proposal. You accepted the proposal and gave us the go-ahead to work on the car. The following report documents the project from beginning to end.


The following describes the components of work done on the car and has a summary of the installation of each part.


• Cuda Designs Body Kit. This is an extremely attractive body kit manufactured in Korea by Cuda Designs, an internationally acclaimed design house. This kit carries with it exclusivity as only 100 kits are to be manufactured for North America. This kit comes unpainted and unassembled, so the installation will take a few days longer than a typical bodykit. $4500 + 500 paint and install charge

The bodykit was fitted, primed, sanded and painted to match the color of the rest of the car. Minor fitting problems typical to most bodykits were found; they were corrected easily.

• Interior Neon Lights – Interior neon adds that personal touch and atmosphere for the interior. These illuminate your passenger and driver foot wells with a glow that others will admire. An interior switch is installed on the left side of the steering wheel so that you can control these lights. $150

Two 15” blue neon lights were installed under the passenger and driver foot wells. They were connected to a constant 12V wire from the battery, and hooked up to a foglight replica switch directly opposite the factory foglight.

• Tinted Windows – Provides privacy and shielding from the sun, as well as enhancing the appearance of your car. We use 3M metallic tint, and all the windows except the front windshield were tinted. $150

The rear windshield and the rear quarter windows were tinted with 5% grade semi metallic limousine tint.

• Undercar Neon Lights – Under car neon lights, similar to what is shown in the recent movie “The Fast And The Furious” enhance and attract attention to your vehicle at night. Do note however these are only legal to utilize when your car is parked. Again, your choice of color. A switch is installed to turn these lights on and off. We use StreetGlow products for this...
