Smile Header or Turbo

Hi, has anyone heard of or located a manufactured tunned header or Turbo kit for our 2.0L AD 2017 Elantra ?..

I've installed the axleback twin tip stainless Korean JUN BL muffler which has given me a slight kick in performance ,but I'm a what if kind of guy and was told by a mechanic friend I can could get around 250bhp on the 2.0L Elantra engine with a turbo kit.

cheers Mav.

Did your mechanic also tell you that you can kiss your 10/100k engine warranty goodbye? If even so much as a burnt valve, blown head gasket, you-name-it... bye-bye warranty. "Hello, billfold."

But that's cool if it's what you aspire to do with a brand new car. Don't get me wrong, I love my Ultimate. But I bought it to retire my tools, not to be forced to continue using them.

Ask yourself this: What do I have after I'm done? A Porsche Type F killer? Nope, a Hyundai that can outrun a stock Honda Civic. Whoopee.

Take that money and put a down payment on a house. Something that will make you money over time, not flush it down the crapper. But I get it. I was a kid...long time ago. I've dumped my share of bulging Brinks' bags into a hot rod.

1) ~cracking up~ um most likely his mechanic doesn't work for Hyundai; So....naturally that means more business for him...right?

2) dude....that's not why it's done. It's for the street cred. I'm kidding (maybe). On a more serious note...oh-yeah...you can't deny the sexy girls that are drawn to a guys tricked out ride. (More kidding...kinda).

3) no way! Live young and reckless while you can...but within a certain means. All my stupid $hit was in my younger/ college years. You can't build upon hilarious stories without living on/ near the edge. A guys first taming out to society life will eventually begin shortly after his choosing of a stable life. Most likely in mid to late 20s. The second phase is when he gets married. Usually his wild side has been stripped away by his wife....or so all you married guys say.

Fate of the Furious was entertaining even if so far fetched from practical reality.

@Freeway Surfer: You're right about young and reckless. It's the rite of passage into middle-adulthood. Not a full-blown adult, just the apprenticeship journey. Taking a wife is the final step. How do I know this? Overheard my wife tell a nurse one evening that she rIsed 3 kids and a husband. I pick my battles. That wasn't one of them.

If you haven't tied the knot, yet, you can't really fathom the depth of what I'm saying. If you have tied it, you're on your way. Hold on to your sanity because all else defies logic. Ask anyone that writes county music.

And any girl that would get in my car back in the day was a bonus. Later on (5-7 years), I found one that wanted to get in the car to be with me. I'll take the latter. Forty-five years later? She still prefers me over the Elantra. BETTER BONUS!!!

If youre able to look back thru the decades and say that, you've made it!

MMMMM more assumptions ..I used to love my fathers old saying especially about to assume... Cracking up
um most likely his mechanic doesn't work for Hyundai; So....naturally that means more business for him...right? :wink .. .......To Assume makes an ASS out of U and Me .......

MMMMM How to enlighten one that's in the dark , where to begin ..I'll explain here in simple English , Freeway surfer and Okierich, I'm a lot older than both of you obviously by your young remarks .I was born in 1959.. I paid cash for my top model Elantra Elite AD and my wife's equivalent brand new i30 hatch . I don't have a mortgage I own my large family home and 2 residential rental properties . I still work a 50 hour week and will for the next decade until I retire at 68 ..I don't have to work but I love working .. Electrical Engineering and contracting qualified but Maintenance Manager at present of a large facility for something to do. ..I grew up in the age of muscle cars but loved rotary engines so I owned an Mazda RX4 from 1976 ( my second car purchased and owned from new and I rebuilt many times over as hobby)to 1992 . Bought a family FORD 4 door Sedan ( stupid choice but we learn from our choices for a family car)..My family including 3 daughters are grown up and university educated with brilliant careers all in their early thirties .. I'm still married to the same beautiful wife , have been since the year 1982 ..Now you know a little more of my background for my 58 years on this earth in our Paradise of Australia..............

Now do I have a warranty ? Am I not fussed about the warrant an voiding it ? Not particularly ! .. I want to have some fun in the second half of my life.. I could have bought more dearer makes of cars that look and are known to be faster but I like to be unassuming( unlike some people) having fun building something that annoys possible others on the road that want to show off, understated comes to mind, my choice, my money . In other words I've been there and done that and I want to re live it and do it again like I did in my old RX4 .... The dual exhaust is the only external variant you will see on my car.. So to sign of and to waste no more of my precious time when you guys get to my age ,I hope you have as much fun , love and support as I have ..

@Maverick11359: Got you beat, youngster. Just turned 68. (2/9/49) And like you, a career in manufacturing and engineering. After 17 months in Vietnam doing my "Wild Thing." Retired at 58. Started a new career legally passing out scheduled drugs in the OR for anesthesia. Home is paid, both new cars are paid. And we're (wife of 45 years!) going to Costa Rica to look at winter properties around May. But rest of the year will be spent with great-grandsons. I'm living the dream.

Didn't mean to get you wound up. Your post sounded so much like the many posts from others before you. But those were from "younger youngsters," 1/4 our ages. But the same tone. Shame on me for stereotyping, yes? So, that cements one point, my friend: you ARE young at heart. Stick to it! It works. We have both blazed trails that our buddy, @Freeway Surfer, hasn't walked down, yet. LOL

But TURBOing an Elantra aftermarket? Buy a Genesis Coupe, kid. That's what idea I'm still toying with. And have been for some time.

But you're right! Enjoy these years. Two careers. Next week, I call it quits. It's time to "Rock and Roll! On that, I'm certain we can agree. :

In closing, let me say this about your choices made in 58 years of life: "Good on ya, mate!"

Simply changing a muffler does not increase performance and to turbocharge or supercharge your Elantra's engine, may require another change of the header. There is a thing called 'tune length', with reference to the exhaust downpipe, that affects back pressure and the breathing of the engine. Then you still have the exhaust manifold to consider.

The best bang for the buck may be in flashing the ECM (or in a replacement ECM). You could realise performance increases that do not stress the engine as supercharging would; the car would look and sound the same, and not raise the suspicions of a dealer or anyone; and the bulk of the money you would have spent in supercharging would go to upgrading wheels, brakes, and suspension.

I would prefer to have an Elantra that I can drive fully, and not a 250BHP sleeper that cooks brakes and naturally goes straight in corners.

Doesn't make sense to turbo an AD Elantra as they are Atkinson cycle engines with VERY high compression. The intake valves stay open during part of the compression stroke and some of the intake charge is blown back into the intake manifold

Sir, have not seen any turbochargers for our cars. However, would you please advise us how your dual exhaust install went? Did you need to replace a flange and what did you do with your rear diffuser to adapt he the tips? Would greatly appreciate you insight! Thanks

P.S. The Atkinson engine does create some problems for a turbocharger?
