Here's a few of things I have done so far.

Swapped the factory rims. 15" on the factory tires. Once these are shot I will upgrade the suspension. Tinted windows Factory Radio tossed, MP3 Player (AWIA), Speaker seperates installed, 2-12" Subs behind the rear seat, 2 Amps.

Honda Acura intake, cut to fit, Vacuum nipple welded back into place.

Taillights? Well... I want CLEAR... but SOB... Am I the only one that wants these? No manufactures have stepped up yet. So I taped the rear taillights & Removed Emblems.

I'd like to do a Turbo also, but don't want to kill my warrenty.

There are both Superchargers and Turbo available for these cars. They are both around $3500, The Blower gives about 190 HP and the Turbo about 220 HP. The kit includes a new head gasket to lower the Compression Ratio of the motor. But this would definately kill the factory warrenty.

I bet the tail lights would look sweet if you tinted they instead of the stripes. You can buy tail light spray tint all over the place. I like smoked tail lights on black cars. MY intake looks almost like that. I used one from a 92-95 Civic and only had to cut about 3" off the filter end and it is a perfect fit. The filter ends right at the cold air pickup beside the battery in the fender. I didn't have to weld anything. I also kept the factory heat shield like you did. Cost me $60 also. I recommend taking off that big mushroom looking cover. That was the VERY first thing I did when I got home from the dealer. IT cleans the engine bay up alot. Keep it up<img src=/images/forums/snitz/thumbup.gif width=25 height=18 border=0>

Isn't 3500 a bit steep for a turbocharger? I thought they were around 800 or 900 dollars

I must say i like the look of the heat guard that covers the exposed filter.
I have a a 2001 Lantra (Aussie version) that is the previous shape to your car. For a short while i tried to refit the Elantras airbox into my car ( it will not work <img src=/images/forums/snitz/cry.gif width=16 height=16 border=0> ).
Have you done any 0-60mph runs in your car? I am interested in your times as the latest Elantra is meant to be heavier than mine with only several kilowatts more.
Safe cruising!

Well I didn't get the G-FORCE I wanted for X-mas... (I must not have been a good boy). So I don't have anyway to measure. I plan to uncork the exhaust, which is all I plan to do until the warrenty runs out. Removing the airbox added some power. It feels stronger.

The tape looks okay, I have done the tint spray and the problem with all paint cans is you can't get the same thickness. So it comes out spotty. Since these are taillights with the lights shinning through it will show up very bad.

I DO want white guages, who makes them for the 2001 Elantra?

My 2 complaints:

(about the 2001 Hyundai)

#1 The motor, maybe it's the ECU programming or something else, but rev the motor and it revs like a truck motor. It's quick reving up but comes down slow. Maybe they did this for emissions. I don't like it. I want my motor to respond!

#2 The Damn Windows Defrost... I don't want the AC on when I put air to the front windows. I know this is a new car thing and they all are doing it, but if I knew a way to disable this I would!

#3 (okay I said I had 2 but there are really 3). The rear springs are way too soft.

#1 It's because they added more counterweights to the crank

#2 hit the A/C button, it turns off. It is a little annoying to have to turn it of all the time but I got used to it and now hit it as soon as I turn the knob.

#3 Shark Racing makes white or silver gauges with blue letters. I got the silver with blue letters since my GLS is silver. $55 pre-order now or $65 when they come out at the end of the month.
