I currently have a 2013 Sonata SE 2.4 and I'm looking to upgrade the exhaust system. Borla and Magna Flow make a nice CatBack System for the 2.0T model. Do the factory 2.0T and 2.4 share the same factory exhaust system? Can I purchase the system for the 2.0T and put it on my 2.4 or will it require some extra "effort" for it to fit? Does anyone have any suggestions or has done this to their 2.4?

Yes you can. There is a post regarding this installation. Do a search. The one thing that needs modification are the mounting bolt holes at the exhaust manifold. They will need to be elongated. You will also need to obtain a manifold shield that mounts above the left muffler.

I have not done this mod with the aftermarket mufflers but I did install the dual mufflers from the SE. It was a direct bolt on to the 2.4L on my limited.

Here is one thread regarding this change. http://www.hyundai-forums.com/222-yf-2011-sonata-i45/136662-dual-exhaust-2-4-a.html

Bob, I already have a dual muffler set-up that came factory equipped on my SE. I'm only going from the Catalyc Converter Back why am I modifying anything with the exhaust manifold or shield above the left muffler?

You say "UPGRADE" and I guess I say what do you think you are upgrading except for the "COOL" aspect at the expense of your pocket book. You're not going to gain anything significant except for a different sound and possibly hurt the resale or trade in value of your vehicle. One big downside is you can introduce a drone depending on what the design of the aftermarket exhaust system is and trust me you don't want that in any vehicle.

My suggestion which you specifically asked for is to leave well enough alone and spend you money on something else. This advice would also apply to intake system modifications for all except the drone issue reasons.

I acknowledged those changes or at least the sound part and unless you're laying on the ground you won't see much:eek: and you have a right to think of that as an upgrade, but I look at it as a "SIDEGRADE" and $$$ poorly spent. The Sonata is a nice looking somewhat "refined" car with some style and I personally think it's a disgrace to try and trick it out by ricing up the sound or slamming it so it looks like a "low rider" ... if that is your thing or hobby get a 50's or earlier car/truck and have at it ... that IMO is where the cool is.

Just like your opinion I have mine and a right to at least express it for potential consideration and am willing to given my reasons.

Way to stereo type and force your "opinion" on others.

BTW, adding LEDs, regardless of where, is also considered "ricing". So be careful tossing out those backhanded insults.
