Hyundai Hybrids Want to drop in a Beta for your Hyundai Accent? How about a 4G63 in your Hyundai Elantra? Maybe a Beta 2 for your Hyundai Tiburon? Post all questions here relating to transmissions and engines from other makes and/or models, you want to install in your Hyundai.

A lot of Accent owners have done beta engine swaps

always wondered if a proper swap with oe harness and beta tranny would kick the 0-60 time, my beta II+alpha tranny on alpha harness and ecu don't do the engine justice

The beta engines put out something like 140 hp right? I imagine the accent engines are significantly less so does a beta swap really make that big of a difference in a lightweight car like an accent?

In most cases the Beta 2 2.0 was rated at 138hp, the Accent varied from mid 70's to 104hp. Aside from second hand nitrous or knowing how to build junkyard turbo setups a Beta swap is the cheapest way to 120whp in an Accent.

I will pick up a purple Accent GT later on down the road and might do the Beta swap in good time. I just bought a bumper, fogs, rare European wing, and some alloys for it.
