I havent seen any yet. It would be great to get a CAI for my SE. I wonder how many ponies it would free up.Has anyone seen any cold air intakes or and of aftermarket exhaust for the sonata yet. Do you think there will be alot of aftermarket stuff come out?
nice. Im hoping to counteract the forces of the larger 18" wheels and the extra weight of the moonroof on my SE. Perhaps, Im also hoping the engine will sound better but hopefully not too loud, just a little more robust.Probably bump the HP to 205-207
careful with the exhaust. You should get ones that are advanced or you will gain HP but sacrifice torque, which will cause you to lose drivability at lower speeds. Get ones that actually allow pressure to build up at low speed and open up as you gain rpm.Yeah i hope one comes out soon, that hp would be nice. Im trying to find some kind of exhaust too.
on simple after markets exhaust system, which open up restrictions on the exhaust you lose tq/hp at the bottom end, and gain HP/tq at the top end. This means you will lose power in the range you mostly use your vehicle to get around. For instance you will lose Torque in the 2-4.5rpm range but will gain in the 4.5-6.5rpm range. So to tap that extra power your going to have to be revving up high all the time or in racing situations you will tap it. Realistically, we all use the vehicles to get around town and on highways. So you have to ask yourself if its worth losing power in the range you will be using your vehicle most to gain a small increase in HP/tq in the high range.What do you mean by advanced exhaust?
Acyes, What brand of exhaust are you getting? where did you find it?
Any chance of creating a video just so that we can hear how it sounds now? Thanks!I installed a cone filter and removed the stock filter so the cone filter kind of rests above where the stock filter was. I have noticed a gain in HP since I drive stock sonatas all day long, also there is a HUGE difference in engine growl especially at WOT on the highway of course.
I was running with a v6 honda accord this morning on the highway and he was so impressed with the sound and me crushing his Honda that at the next stop sign we talked for a few mins about the Sonata.
Have fun modding is great!!
try thisEL'aton, I am still waiting for my 2011 but one thing that I thought that they could easily improve on, was to make the arm rest on the centre console slightly higher and longer in order for my right elbow to be able to rest on the console while still holding the steering in a 20 after 10 position for those long stints of freeway driving. I believe an add-on piece cut from some firm foam and covered with the same covering as either the leather seats or the current console cover, will do it. Maybe this is an idea that you folks could explore as an available accessory?
