A little late night CAD action for our new rear sway bar for the #hyundai #elantrasport Big thanks to @jacob_rogers for getting me quality scans for product development! We hope to bang out a 21mm bar for testing in the next 2-3 weeks. This will add some more fun to an already great suspension. Plan is a properly heat treated and stress relieved 4130 or similar chromoly steel that will handle all the track days you can throw at it. You'll see some FEA screenshots here soon too #kia #hyundai #kiaracing #kiamotorsusa #mykia #hyundaimotorcompany #forte #veloster #forteturbo #velosterturbo #kdm #kdmlife #teamhyundai_kdm #kdmsociety #fortified #hylife #kdmnation #ultrakdm #blacklistkdm #elantra #elantraturbo

Didn't have time to post this yesterday as I was in a hurry to get to other errands after getting off the dyno but here are our initial runs of our 3.5" intake system.
As you can see we gained power and torque across the entire band and peak gains 12whp and 14wtq.
89degF in the shop. I did the first run, installed our intake and ran the second run with identical coolant and air intake temps shown via TorqueApp.
I'm interested to dyno the car again after some driving and the fuel trims settle from the differences with the new intake.
Kits will be ready to ship late next week. We are just waiting on mounting brackets to get powdercoated.
Any questions please post or email me tech@sxthelement.com. Thanks for the support!

Good news #hyundai #elantrasport owners, our intake systems start production tomorrow. Just finished up test fitment for a few little details. 3.5in piping and comes with genuine AEM dryflow filter. Dyno results come next week but expect similar gains to our #velosterturbo and #forteturbo systems. We will have a bunch of #elantrasport parts on the site very soon. #kia #hyundai #kiaracing #kiamotorsusa #mykia #hyundaimotorcompany #forte #veloster #turbo #velosterturbo #kdm #kdmlife #teamhyundai_kdm #kdmsociety #fortefied #hylife #forteturbo #kdmnation #6thelementengineering #ultrakdm #velosternation #blacklistkdm #elantra #elantra sport

Had a DCT #velosterturbo come for a dyno tune today. His stock tune was having trouble with his 3.5" Intake/FMIC/downpipe/catback. After a little work he's a happy camper. 35whp/30wtq increase at peak numbers and as you can see even higher in other places. #kia #hyundai #kiaracing #kiamotorsusa #mykia #hyundaimotorcompany #forte #veloster #turbo #velosterturbo #kdm #kdmlife #teamhyundai_kdm #kdmsociety #fortefied #hylife #forteturbo #kdmnation #6thelementengineering #ultrakdm #velosternation #blacklistkdm

First time using a dynojet. Honored to be chosen to tune a #hyundai #velosterturbo here in the Los Angeles area. This guy had all the goodies and a little meth action going on. Impressive stock numbers but we still got some improvement. I wonder how this car would have performed on the Mustang Dyno we use back home. Either way, happy customer. More dynos to be posted tomorrow! #kia #hyundai #kiaracing #kiamotorsusa #mykia #hyundaimotorcompany #forte #veloster #turbo #velosterturbo #kdm #kdmlife #teamhyundai_kdm #kdmsociety #fortefied #hylife #forteturbo #kdmnation #6thelementengineering #ultrakdm #velosternation #blacklistkdm

Those of you with stick shift #hyundai #velosterturbo and #kia #forte #turbo would you be interested in weighted shift knobs? We had this one whipped up. Could easily get these made quickly. Would come in our standard wrinkle black powdercoat. They would be 400 grams made from quality steel. Reverse lock out feature is kept. Just screw it on! Pricing would probably be $79 shipped to lower 48 states. Custom colors would be $10 extra. Let us know if you would be interested!!! #kia #hyundai #kiaracing #kiamotorsusa #mykia #hyundaimotorcompany #forte #veloster #turbo #velosterturbo #kdm #kdmlife #teamhyundai_kdm #kdmsociety #fortefied #hylife #forteturbo #kdmnation #6thelementengineering #ultrakdm #velosternation #blacklistkdm

Our downpipes for the 1.6T #hyundai #velosterturbo and #kia #forte #turbo are nearing completion! We hit the dyno with this bad boy next week. Gains will be similar to other brands. Full 304 Stainless Steel construction including the CNC billet turbo outlet attachment designed to match the exit geometry of the stock turbo housing for optimal flow into our 3" piping. The V-band attachment allows you to keep this downpipe when you go to our bigger turbo upgrades coming later this year. No need to buy a new downpipe when you go big! Pre-order on our site starts tomorrow and our first batch will be ready in 2-3 weeks. Catless version we will make sure there is no CEL and we will make Catted versions to order. Catless pipes will be intro priced for $439 shipped! Catted pipes are $150 extra. More pics and power gain results to come very soon. #kia #hyundai #kiaracing #kiamotorsusa #mykia #hyundaimotorcompany #forte #veloster #turbo #velosterturbo #kdm #kdmlife #teamhyundai_kdm #kdmsociety #fortefied #hylife #forteturbo #kdmnation #6thelementengineering #ultrakdm #velosternation #blacklistkdm
