Gangsta - I use Green cotton stock replacement filter and is better than a K&N. In green cotton noise levels are less compared to a K&N when you are blasting the beast.

If you are going for the conical air filter then you are losing the advantage of CAI.

well if the pipe is put to a place where it can get fresh cool air from outside the car it would perform better than a conical that is sucking in hot air from your engine bay.

thanx bro. I will surely go for Green Storm. changing Headers, Manifolds and Exhaust is recommendable? Because High Rev is not there.

Here is some very interesting news for all you elantra owners. Those who want more power, can get hold of a boost controller and up the boost a bit.

I know someone who uppped the boost from 7psi (stock) to 1bar and the car felt insane. Only trouble is that the clutch didn't hold up for long. But at 10psi the car does feel like a dream. Id recommend this to anyone with a common rail diesel engines. Apparently this made a wonder of a difference to the drab Skoda Tdi.

this sounds interesting! where can i find one? and is it a 1 size fits all component? I have 3 CRDI engines at home all hungry for more boost!

Definitely you would have to compromise a bit on the life of the engine depending on the extend of mods done -IMO.Elantra is wonderfull with the petes and the filters.

I know this sounds too good to be true but how sure are you that the fuel pump can handle that much boost. I don't think Hyundai would have had the maps updated to handle double the boost.

I can agree about increasing boost upto 20% as the engineers would have factored that much in but 50% is too hard to believe. I do know of 1 person who did do this on a Safari and promptly blew his engine going up 4 PSI extra.

Did also hear of 1 elantra that went up 5PSi and had problems. The clutch was always a bit suspect for the existing torque hence any upgrades on boost will require a better clutch.

That means we need to spend money on the performance clutches too?

Hi keshav,

elantra crdi stock is 7psi, if we can add just 3psi total will be 10psi.
can elantra crdi handle 3psi extra boost?

i am asking this because i don't want to go for 1bar, i want power aswell as be in the safer side.

I am also ready to install performance clutch for the power it gives.

Any other upgrades to be done to be in safer side.

one more question?
will it work with petes box which is already installed.

the elantra's engine is supposed to be hyundai's best attempt at CRDI(prev gen) is'nt that so?
anyway, double the boost on stock internals will be suicide!
just a teensy weensy bit wont hurt will it?

what happens if the fuel pump cant deliver? i mean, other than it going bust or car not performing as expected due to poor fuelling, what else can go wrong with regards to the fuel pump?can the lack of fuel cause trouble elsewhere in the engine(running too lean)

what about the turbo? will it be able to take 3-5psi more?
installing a new turbo kind of defeats the purpose of using a boost controller doesnt it?

wont a standalone ECU help with new fuelling maps? is that kind of service available? how much would it cost?

ofcourse the clutch will have to be upgraded.DUH!

but think how delicious this elantra could be!

@mclaren1885
how much does this boost controller cost?
can you adjust the boost levels via a switch/dial from within the cabin?

He told me that for boost controller and fitting charges its 22k and to fit it takes around 4hours. The fun part is if you need power switch on the boost controller or else switch off to make it a normal car. He also recommended that not to go more than 10psi to be in safer side and it works with petes

interesting to see till where one can go just to go quicker. Looks like your mind is made up but i would tread carefully above 9 psi even more with petes box as i am not sure till when it will hold.
