Hey folks-
When I rev my car ('01 E) past around the 4k mark, it seems to 'deaden' or have a weakened spark discharge and/or fuel starvation. It doesn't do it all the time. I'm wondering- could a MSD DIS ignition help this, if spark IS indeed the prob here; or do I maybe need to set this car up with a CAI for more direct air supply to the intake? I plan on making a custom CAI soon as I can. Car is my daily driver, 10,350 miles. TIA for the help<img src=/images/forums/snitz/wink.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>

I'm not sure if the Accent has the same igniton problems the tibbies/elantras do, but that would be the first place to check.

Take your car to a dark spot at night, as far away from all lights as you can. Leave the engine running and pop the hood. Rev the engine my moving the throttle armature with your hand. Rev it up high and look for flashes along your spark plugs or coils.

If you see them along your wires..replace them. If you see them near the coils, take it to the dealer to have them replaced.

If you don't see any sparks or flashes, go ahead with the CAI mod and see if that improves things.

Do a search for the "Random Special"
check over at TeamSr for pics. You'll have to search though. That is what I based mine on. I still need to heat wrp it though.

i have the same sorta thing on my '01 accent I got the tubing from autozone, its made by spectre and cost me 40 bux. I got a 20 dollar cone filter to put on the end, and voila, cheap intake.

Heres mine:

Yep, I got mine at AutoZone also. I got both the filter & pipe from them. I did not see a point in spending an extra $150 for maybe 1-2hp. The way our stock set up is it's like a semi-CAI system. You have a tube behind the factory heat shield that runs down into a box in the fender(resonator) then back up into the stock air box. My filter ends right at the piping for the stock cool air pick up in the fender(Only an inch or two away). My pic looks similiar to that except the pipe is a little longer, the filter is right behind the battery & I left the factory heat shield on for extra heat protection. That $150 would be better spent towards a bored TB. That was definately the best $60 I have spent on my Elantra GLS so far.

<img src=/images/forums/snitz/smile.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>Cool, that looks like a great fit! Also- SuperGTR, what about that plastic part on the Elantra that houses the MAFS? Did you have to cut anything there? Or did the piping clamp right to that accordian plastic part (the part which is 'fluted,' or ribbed so it bends easier just before the MAFS)? DOn't wanna damage anything there. TIA man <img src=/images/forums/snitz/wink.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>

Hey- OK, so we're MAP based- Still, what do I need to do to that accordian part? It's a US Spec 2001 Elantra 2.0L. That accordian plastic part holds a sensor of some kind (MAP Sensor?) and I don't want to destroy that part if I can help it. Thanks a lot<img src=/images/forums/snitz/wink.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>
