Um, no.

In 2001 the Tibs still had a Beta 1. Though the Elantra now had a Beta 2

So the safest choice for Beta2 non-cvvt engine is 2001 or newer Elantra with MAP and grey top cover? And the Tiburon and Tucson of course.

During 2001-2002, the new Beta II engine made its debut in models such as the XD Elantra and GK Tiburon. Output is 138 hp (102 kW) at 6000 rpm with 136 foot-pounds force (184 Nm) of torque (184 Nm) at 4500 rpm. It has a cast iron engine block and aluminum DOHC cylinder heads. The latest version of the 2.0L Beta engine (G4GC) features CVVT, which exists only on the intake side, a first for Hyundai/Kia. The following changes were noted.</div>

i have never seen a BETA 2 Engine, how would i distinguish between a BETA 2 and a Beta 2 with CCVT?

Hyundai use's the following engine codes for ther beta's 1.6= G4GR 1.8= G4GM 2.0=G4GF BETA 2 2001-2002 2.0=? and beta 2 with ccvt=G4GC but none of these numbers appear on the block?

these are the 2.0 engine i have seen.
the J2 2.0 (im Guessing this is the J2 Series Elantra here is a pic of the J2.1.6

then there is this engine the XD 2.0 from what motor does this car come out of ? is it a Beta 2 ? it had no tappet cover so it look very similar to the beta 1 or is it out of something other than a elantra ? will a Tuscons 2.0 use the Identical engine to a Tiburon 2.0 or elantra 2.0?

so if anyone has seen there Engine block on the elantra please let me what it says...

Yes my motor says same thing
