I want to buy parts for my car that have to do with performance and can't find any help other than buying new. that's my main reason for posting. I've looked around on this site and can't find an area were I can look thru a section for parts.

http://www.elantraxd.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?23-Marketplace used parts tend to go quick around these parts but there are some tibby parts that work on the elantra.
what is your goal for the car what kind of money are you looking to spend? look at member profiles and fourm sections and dont forget search but if you post up more of what you are looking for we can lead you in the right direction.

I want a low mile same engine to swap with mine. I have a turbo that I wold like to mock up on a newer engine I have the turbo and wastegate. I need almost everything else for it. I don't want top of the line but I want somethin. All I ask is more horsepower and with what I have found out the only way to do that is V-6 engine swap or turbo. I have too many miles on my original engine so I figured start with engine and work up. The main thing is I'm tryin to work on my car with a buget so I have to take what I can. So If any Ideas on how to boost performance on my ride I'm open to suggestions.

If you are looking for more hp then you are working with the wrong car. The reason you can't find any performance parts for the BETA engine is because there are none out there. Also, if you are on a budget you will not be able to complete a custom project.

Save your money and put it in the suspension and brakes. The Elantra does very well with wide tires, struts, springs, poly bushings and a 19 mm rear sway bar. If you spend money on the suspension, you WILL see an improvement. If you spend it on the engine, you might as well flush it down the toilet.

^ There are plenty of performance parts for beta engines. The only aftermarket part that I can think of that no one offers is a crankshaft

Holy Hell 3" CAI and Exhaust??? That's over kill for a N/A elantra. You want your elantra Faster than what? I mean with suspension mods and bolt ons it'll be a relatively quick and an absolute blast to drive.

the tiburon v6 is a turd. Even fully modded with a supercharger it's a turd.

Beta all day sir. All day long.

There are no intake, cylinder head parts, cams or exhaust components for the BETA engine for performance. By definition performance parts should add performance with a measureable result, not opinions. Anything available is half-assed hack parts that offer no improvement.

Wrong. If you add everything you mentioned, your car will be slower and run like crap. Are you going to convert it to a manual transmission, or drop in the POS 2.7 Tib V6? These projects are not impossible, but far more involved than swapping engines in the 70s muscle cars.

With today's cars, if you have to ask how to make them faster, you are not ready to get it done.

Well I appreciate all the GOOD help that everyone has and I've got more than enough input to make an educated desicion. I think I will start with suspension, then maybe cam and exhaust mani, I guess thou the first thing to do is put a new or likenew egine in and build off that. So if anyone has an under 30k 2.0L DOHC please let me know

ohh and I know right 3" too much. I have a turbo kit for my car just minus the head gasket and intercooler. I just wasn't going to put it on a motor that has as many miles as mine. so the kit sits in my garage untill I get all the right parts and enough $$$ to get it all together.

Intake, Exhaust
http://kfxperformance.com/ixxocart/catalog/Engine-156-1.html

For Cams Call Geoff @ Colt Cams

Cylinder head
Valves for the Beta 2 with Solid Lifters I stock standard and oversized valves from FERREA with Dual Valve springs, seats and retainers
and yes those are the longer valves 114.34mm Intake and 116.8mm exhaust I have them in stainless steel

Injectors vary all the way from 290 to 2200cc

There are plenty of PERFORMANCE Parts for your engine but having these items don't mean nothing without tuning. Without tuning it all means nothing.
Looking for a part hit me up I'll try to direct you in the right direction.
