Veloster N swap?

I assume the engine would fit? I'd rather buy a new engine than turbo my old, tired engine. 275 hp is double what I have, stock.

Anything can fit with enough effort. It's certainly not going to be a direct swap, let alone thinking your current trans,axles,suspension would handle it.

The 2.0T engine from the N would not fit, the engine is a bit too tall.

The 1.6T might be able to squeeze in there, it's a more realistic swap.

Consider that the 2.0T is also in the Santa Fe. It fits in there, but even it isn't super roomy in there.

I lusted after the Veloster Turbo motor for a couple years before the N came out. We're getting close to 100k miles, so I'll start searching for a good one soon.

The 1.6T from the 1st gen Veloster will fix in there, plus they use the same tranny so you don't need to touch it, that would be a much better swap.
