Car ?'s

I just got my first car, a 1997 Hyundai Accent and I have a few ?'s

1. When I look for intakes, they always say something like Injen intake "car name" but when I checked the Injen and AEM sites, they don't list specific car models, just different style intakes, can I get any intake and just custom bend it or whatever for my car?

2. I'm rolling up on 160K and I'd like to put in a new engine, I'm looking at the 2.0L from the Tiburon, what else would I need to get along with it to make it work.

Please don't rip on my car for being a Hyundai, while all you guys are talkin bout Skylines and shit. I just cannot afford that stuff, specially on my meager baggers salary

1. I just spent almost five whole minutes checking both websites. They most certainly do list by specific application. Try looking again.

2. The engine, transaxle, PCM, mounts and CV axles come immediately to mind. The axles may have to be custom made. Also the complete wiring harness from the PCM forward would probably be helpful.

Thank you so much for agreeing with me. You've made my entire day worth living.
