I think I know what you are talking about. But am not sure though.

Weight reduction?
Blocking off the exhaust gas recirculation?
getting rid of the stock muffler?
The elantra already has a CAI as stock, so cant be that!

@prabhuav-LPG, a basic mod?

Its called tuners secrets. Almost all tuners talk in the same tongue these days .
May be I can some hints on what I think it is, but then the Madman would kill me in case I am right.

1. Satya's car already has better plumbing. Rajiv's car is due for the intercooler installation shortly.

2. We did look around for better manifolds, but none available off the shelf for the CRDi unit. Custom fabrication is too much of a pain.

3. These guys don't want to open the engine at any cost. So it rules out P&P.

4. Better exhaust?

For this you need to know the right people. Moreover it is not a pain at all.

Please do elaborate! this thread has enough cryptic clues already!

@psycho-
Porting and polishing.. how much can it add? Asking because I dont know.
better plumbing- do you mean straightening out as much as possible the routes taken by air? or increasing diameter of tubes, or both?
better exhaust will help-but aftermarket exhausts for diesels, not easy to come by.

Well I finally found a source who can make even single piece cast turbo manifolds. So now nothing is out of reach.

What I mainly meant was the downpipe from the turbo.

Greddy Profec B Spec

Basic use of boost controllers is to change the waste gate boost response depending upon the setting. It has digital display to monitor boost pressure in real time and also has PEAK boost feature will allow the user to check the highest boost recorded.

More info on
Greddy - Founded and Driven by Racers

Basically boost controller should be tuned with the ECU to get the best results and most important point to note is to match the Air-Fuel ratio so planning to install AFR meter as well.

One important feature I like in this is we can get power with just a push of a button and switch off when not required.

Most people think that elantra has TCS feature and will not wheel spin when launched hard! you are wrong. It wheel spins if hard launched, may be i have to complain hyundai . If the boost is ON it is more.

Brakes feel inadequate if driven with boost ON.

Regarding the fuel efficiency when the boost is ON say at around 21psi it gives -2kmpl, of course it also depends upon the boost set.

I usually switch it ON when overtaking powerful cars, which are greater than 150bhp, and turbo lag is almost nil when boost in set to 21psi.

If you are planning to install one, make a note of these points.

- Have to install Intercooler before going for boost upgrade to keep the engine cool.
- Use turbo timers if you donít have much of patience to wait for a minute to switch off.
- Use synthetic oil only for the engine and is very much recommended.
- Use it when required only as more the power more the strain to the engine.

Experts can add to the points.

Shortly a video will be uploaded which shows the difference between a peted elantra v/s boosted elantra.

Small correction AFR meter is used to monitor AF ratio's and the ECU to tune the same.

Prabhuav is using HID in low beam and 100/90 bulbs in high beam, so lets wait for his writeup.

For everyone's info: Hyundai engines are not mod friendly in terms of porting & polishing of heads. It was advised not to touch the head.

Vikram: Not everyone is as lucky as you.

Rajiv, I don't think all that will be necessary. I have a more accurate way of finding out the performance gains. More on it when we meet up next weekend

Actually, I was told the exact opposite by a very well known tuner who is also on this forum.

Fortunately for us, this info comes from highly qualified tech people from Hyundai and we were advised never to open that head for mechanical engine mods.
