I already have a short ram air intake and I need to know what to do next, but I can only do other mod when I come into some extra cash. Well its tax season and i'll have $400 to $500 that I can spend. Any suggestion will be great if they will not void warranties.

The whole voiding warranty thing is not carved in stone...it depends on your service dept/dealer. MY dealer told me it wasn't up to them but to Hyundai. They also said they would only void whatever portion of the warranty that the mod could be shown to directly effect. And they said they would take into consideration the quality of the aftermarket part and the quality of the installation.
So, have a conversation with your service manager about "minor" modifications and your warranty. Feel him out. If he says "don't touch a thing or else" be careful.
He probably would NOT say this though. Some peeps have posted that their service dept has INSTALLED their mods for them.<img src=/images/forums/snitz/cool.gif width=15 height=15 border=0><img src=/images/forums/snitz/thumbup.gif width=25 height=18 border=0>
Feel them out, just be careful what you say at first, tell them you were considering a few minor modifications and see how they react. That said, I'd set aside $250 for a Cold Air Intake. The kind that draw air from the fenderwell.
KORE is, apparently, nearly ready with theirs for the '01/'02 Elantra.
Injen will have one for the new Elantra mid-year. AEM is working on one too I believe, prolly behind the other two in the time frame. They should all be high quality products.
I didn't look at your Signature carefully, so I'm posting this not knowing if you included your car info. I'm assuming, for the moment
that you have a newer Elantra. You
can also get an racing pulley from
Unorthodox Racing. I have one. They
cost around $ 235.00 and should add about 6-10 hp at the wheels....this
according to Shawn at Unorthodox Racing today. He told me that our
engines dynoed that much. I have not dynoed my car yet because you're supposed to drive the car around for a week after installation to get an accurate result. I JUST installed it. You can also look into exhaust options if you don't like the Crank pulley idea. They are all fairly low cost mods that add small but valuable HP and/or torque. <img src=/images/forums/snitz/wink.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>

I have the 02 GLS. With the pulley how easy is it to install, or should i have someone install it for me? I have looked over the articale on Brendan's web site and it looks easy but i dont have an impact wrench.

Sorry for replying my own post but with a throttle body such as the one from Sharkracing would i have to get the ports matched or just bolt it on? Ive been looking and what I read didnt specify.

You'll need to port the inlet to the manifold to match.

Yeah Vitorio,
I considered installing the Pulley with the help of a friend...he's got more tools and more mechanical ability, but I decided to pay Auto
Enhancement $60.00 to do it. Feeling confident about the installation was worth the money to me.<img src=/images/forums/snitz/wink.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>
