A friend told me that the Kia Spectra 5 engine was the same as a Hundi Tiberon enigine, does any one know if this is true, if the parts can swap cross platform or if there is another engine that it is the same as? Thanks
Pretty much the same as the current 2.0 liter Tiburon engine, as well as the Elantra engine. There are some small differences; for instance toward the end of the 06 model year, Hyundai tweaked the design of the timing belt and tensioner in the engine (a slight improvement for the 07 model, but actually rolled out before the model changeover) so the timing belts and tensioners are not interchangeable. But by and large, the same engine.
