Hi peoples new owner here. Just bought a 2000 Sonata v6 with all the bells and whistles. Love the power, much better than that 4 cyl Cavalier that occupies the other half of the driveway ;-) One thing, the low end RPM range is rather weak in power, doesn't seem to get full effect of the engine until around 3000+ RPM. Got any suggestions for adding some low-end torque and speed without costing too much cash? The car payments kinda .. well ... takes away from the extra fun that I want to have with the car :)

i suggest you take the portion off that says "DUCT" in the illustration..

your engine will breathe better
along with taking out the first box... drop in a "DROP in" K&N filter... it'll do your engine good... ^_^

I recommend a cold air intake. In a sense it is exactly like what yoon said except replace all that stuff with an pipe that goes straight to the throttle body, cut to put MAFS in, and a big cone at the end.

I had gotten towed by the city and they destroyed my alignment so the service manager at Hyundai took it for a spin to see what he could do. He said it made a HUGE difference. He was tempted to pull a Sonata off the lot and we could race the two. But that would be wrong <img src=/images/forums/snitz/wink.gif width=15 height=15 border=0> . Just to see the difference, but he said there is a large difference before and after. Only problem is it will be a bit louder. Like when your driving and you gun it, it sounds like a larger engine then it is. ***May increase the amount of speeding tickets you receive*** cause its just such a sweet sound. Mine came out to just over $100 Cdn. So what $1.00 US? <img src=/images/forums/snitz/smile.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>

Also recommend a cat back exhaust. But it will definately make more of a resounding noise throughout the car. Quiet outside, pretty loud inside.

yoon, when you remove the duct, you have to tear out the fuse box and a tonne of other crap. Then when you do that, the air box sucks air from pretty well against the frame. There is only about a 1 inche difference.


Hope it works out <img src=/images/forums/snitz/thumbup.gif width=25 height=18 border=0>

The air duct? the top one labeled air duct or the bottom one labelled air duct? I don't see how that will do any good. Now a CAI I can understand, but the ones I've seen are rather expensive.

take off both the top and bottom that says "AIR DUCT"

and then u can reroute it by connecting a "dryer" duct to the front of the car with the opening you have... i hope this helps..

i have another idea.. but it has to be drawn out on paper... ^_^ and i'm too lazy for that
