Yes you'll get people who start chanting "use the search feature...blah blah blah" but most of use will try to offer advice. There are many things that sound like they should work on this car but won't so best to tap into experience.

    There hasn't been a lot of new development on modding this car over the last year or so if all we did was search for answers there would be no traffic on this forum and most if not all vendors would vacate.

    Lastly, please please pleeeeaaase create a signature that includes your cars info and then add mods as you do them. It makes us so much easier to assist when everyone can see what you're working with.

    Go get you an oil catch can. At least for your pcv side, it doesn't matter what your doing you'll thank us all once you realize how much gunk the can is catching. don't spend stupid amounts of money on one ether. I personally got add w1 cans and threw some Stainless steel mesh balls in it.

    The service contract I read stated that it would be conventional oil (I forget the exact phrasing). So that contact would be such a rip-off. A buyer would get a handful of oil changes and it would not even be the most appropriate oil.

    I guess that is true, you cant trust anyone. I would normally do the oil change myself.

    The invoice however stats full synthetic oil.

    Since it's a 2013, read into the preventative stuff and do that first. Then start working on performance stuff.

    Too many parts to list: My build thred.

    Start bringing your own oil for the dealership to change they usually don't have an issue with that.

    I would start with a catch can set up, this is going to help keep all the gunk out of your engine, I would suggest the dual catch can, pair it with a 3.5 Inch intake and you will be able to have a bit more fun along with it! Hyundai Veloster Big Gulp Intake | DamnFastDD.com

    Next I would go with a stage 0/1 Tune depending on what you are looking for! Select a Product | DamnFastDD.com

    if you have any questions please let me know, congrats on your purchase, and have some fun with it!
