    Default 2.7L Delta Engine Swap: A done and documented project

    For everyone who has ever wondered if it will ever be done, and what is involved, check this thread on NT (no, this is not my car):

    He finished the swap, and made a lot of posts along the way so you can see how much work is actually involved.

    • Past: 2002 Elantra GLS (sold in 2010), 2003 Tiburon GT (Sold in 2014)
    • Present: 2004 Santa Fe GLS, 2004 Saab 9-3 Arc, 2010 Suzuki Equator Sport
    • Future: ????

    Thanks for posting it. I had came across it a while ago but couldn't find it again. Good stuff. Now I wonder, does it have to be a Tiburon for it to be a direct swap or could I use the Sonata...

    I would think either one would work. You never know until you find out though.

    2013 is the year of change for the XD/XD2 community. With people like ryan and deem slamming theirs, 2liter going with a subaru killing budget reliable turbo build, as well as 2liter opening up many more brake options for us, and this guy in his fully documented 2.7 v6 swap. It's a good time to be an elantra owner.
    They ran over my car, quite literally.

    i use to love these swaps and wanted to invest in it myself, but i just dont see it that much faster than the 2.0 in my car. still a great swap keeping ac/cc/ps and everything.

    Be interesting to see a side by side comparison of 0 - 60 , 1/4 mile ( ect. ) times. What I like and respect is the attention to detail and every feature working as it should.

    ^this, also if handling would be such a change, i love the way my car handles now with coil overs and strut brace bars, cant wait to auto cross it again.

    At the end of the thread he says it feels slightly peppier than his Tiburon with the same engine/transmission - probably due to the couple-hundred-pounds-lighter weight difference of the Elantra. The Delta was never a high performance engine, so even modest forced-induction setups on the BetaII would have more power than the stock Delta.

    As for handling, both the BetaII and Delta went into the Tiburon, and they had very similar suspension setups between the base and GT versions. The Delta also has an aluminum block vs. the cast iron block of the BetaII. So there should only be negligible difference in weight to affect handling.
