Performance Mods for Elantra CRDi
 
Hello bhpians,
I need some help on the performance modifications on Elantra CRDi.
This is what i'm planning to do..
1. Pete's Tuning Box.
2. Universal Twin Conical Green Filter

Car already have TCS, so Strut braces will be helpful or not? Car's handling around the corner is already too good.
What else is recommended?

Regards

Good to see another elantra going in for mods.Tadukuttan had done a good job in his.PM him for details of his job.
strut brace can help you to some extend but not a nesecity at all.Why not a tyre up grade and Angel eyes(dont know if its available for the elantra)

get the petes box. it will bring the power up to 130bhp and the torque upto 305nm.

also get a green air filter. i think the green storm cold air intake will be good.

you can also get an eibach or bilstein suspension upgrade from petes.

Yeah already planned for pete's + green filter + CAI. Sorry forgot to write in the above post. Don't wanna touch stock suspensions, they are good.

Nice or vroom on highways, can please give more details please on the performance? I already ran it 200+ kmph on greater noida way. I wanna finish the initial sluggishness for comfortable city driving. On highway it is wow but city driving sometimes feel sluggish at low rpms. After pete's, airfilter and CAI this sluggish will vanish? Please provide more details on it if possible.

What about the airfilter?
Universal Twin Cone Green Filter is good or K&N Typhoon? I have Universal one installed on my accent 1.6 and i'm very happy with it.
please Suggest more for elantra.

The head lights are not that good buddie,there is a different type of head lamps available.Instead of the many leds go for the ring type.
Yes tadukuttan has a petrol elantra.

Don't go for those headlamps. Try for one which has a single ring around the light and not a set of led's. Btw, before u order, pls check with someone if the beam quality is good or not. Several people have removed these from lancers as visibility is zero!

On the performance side, get a petes box+air filter, and u're good to go!

Once again thanx mate, now i have 2 ques running in my mind..

Ques1. K&N Typhoon is better or Universal Twin Conical Green Filter is better? I think Green one have more surface area and green is ahead of K&N in terms of performance. Your Suggesions please :)

Ques2. What about CAI on Elantra CRDi?
