Your trans just went out and now you want a Turbo? You will be looking for another trans soon after the turbo goes in.

I've considered the same thing years ago with my '99 Sephia. One company made a turbo kit for it, and it ran in the $1500 range for all parts. So far, no company that I've ever seen make turbo parts for the Spectra. The components are balanced, and adding more power to the engine, will likely cause problems with the trans in short order, this is assuming that the engine can handle the extra pressure and not crack first.

With all the caveats posted...look for a turbo for a Hyundai Tiburon 2L
Put this in Google "hyundai tiburon 2.0 turbo kit"

Remember " A chain is only as good as it's weakest link"

You WILL need to make changes (manual tranny, HD Clutch parts, Brake upgrades to slow you down).

I'd also suggest you visit "iaai.com" and input "KIA Spectra". Take a look at the carnage from speed on these cars.... They do crush badly..
Best that you just enjoy what the car has to offer now.
