1self, you have got an awesome setup. Seems you are running an extra injector for the fueling?.
Can you give more insight on it. I too have a sonata gold. May go for the head grooving in the future.

I am not running an extra injector for fuelling. What you see in the pics, is a water methanol injection system. My current injectors combined with my uprated pump is enough for the engines current fuelling needs.

Just read this thread & was just amazed by the kind of mods that you have performed on the 1st generation Sonata.
I hope you are still holding on the car with further more upgrades. Awaiting for your updates on this thread.

Yes vdm295, I'm definitely holding on to this car! She is a BEAST in every sense of the word! I've cut open the 2 piece intake manifold & ported/ polished it using a drill, burr removers & sandpaper. I took some pics but my hard drive gave way before I had a chance to upload them here.

Next in line after I'm back from a tour of duty is electronic engine management. Stay tuned.

1. The first pic is what the intake manifold looked like after the throttle body. This pic is from my Elantra, but the Sonata manifold was exactly the same.

2. The second pic is the work in progress after I cut the manifold open & was working on it.

3. The third pic is of the manifold welded back together.

The difference is night & day.

The work is hard though. It took me a good week of 6 hrs work per day to get the results I wanted. No one, even if you paid them will do this kind of work. It's ALL DIY, except the cutting & welding.

Dyno session on the cards...just doing some more mods with ignition timing.
Mouth-watering stuff, 1self! We carried a partly dis-assembled 1975 Oldsmobile Tornado (in 1999 or 2000, I cant say for sure - I quit main fleet in

2008!) from Jacksonville, Florida to Manzanillo, Mexico on the "Neptune Ace" while I was with MOL's car carrier fleet. It was headed for an enthusiast

who planned to shift the entire engine/g.box/differential/undercarriage assembly from the front (the original Tornado was the largest FWDer of its

time, with a 7 liter V8) to the rear for traction only. The front was to be converted to a steering only unit from some other, more conventional GM

goliath, which were available for a song at the time. I don't know how far this - apparently - demented project succeeded.

I certainly hope that guy succeeded! Here we can only dream of the kind of aftermarket support they have for most makes & models including Asian brands. Here I follow the motto "If you really want it done the way you want, Do It Yourself!"

dracul, I bought the kit from Korea when I was visiting. It's from a Hyundai Azera which is not sold here. However, the brake pads are a perfect fit from the Hyundai Terracan. By that extension the whole braking system (except the brake disks) should be a direct fit. However you will need at least 16 inch wheels. The V6 came with 16 inchers as OEM. Even then it's a VERY tight fit. The Hyundai Terracan's brake disk will fit, if you can drill an additional hole for the wheel lugs. The Terracan came with 114.3 x 5 lugs, but the Sonata came with 114.3 x 4 lugs. I believe 3 of these hole match up. So you have to drill one.

If you dont want to go through all the trouble, go to Sharkracing & use this link.

Hope this helps.
