    Evey... TyBardy's 2016 Build Thread

    So I've had my car roughly a month. Bought it used with 3,000 miles on it. Got her for $18k with everything I wanted.

    Meet Evey, as in E.V. Short for Elite (White) Veloster... A name that coincides with the female role in the movie V for Vendeta. So my little white Veloster's name is Evey.

    As Purchased -
    2016 DCT - VT - Elite White - Tech Package - Auto Dimming Rear View - Hub Locks

    Immediate work done -

    In the last week, I have stripped out all the tint and replaced it with limo all the way around including across the top of the windshield. A near must here in the valley of the sun

    I replaced theturn signals with basic LED's (for now) and installed the load resistors. I used 3M so I wouldn't have to add any holes into anything.

    I started on the 60MM TB upgrade and then this happened... cracked the damn thing tapping in the nipple. Pretty sure this one is trash... project is now on hold.

    EDIT - Forgot to mention that is disabled the active sound design as well, very happy about that too BTW.


    Until next time... Hopefully I will have this 60mm TB figured out soon. The next round of goodies will be knocking out the 2nd cat (possibly replacing it with a Magnaflow straight tube), replacing the downpipe with a catless (I like the 845 product). and a lightened water pump pulley and crank pulley. At some point we will be bolstering the suspension and tunning.

    Before I post more pics of the next round of build... I thought I would mention that something with the OCC I installed stinks. Smells like gas/oil/rubber... not sure if it is the can itself as it too smelled like gas/oil when I took it out of the box or if it is the tubes due to the extremely close proximity to the motor I ran them. I hate the smell and I will figure it out eventually and remidy it as it really bugs the crap out of me. But enough of that... onto the next update on Evey

    Few weeks ago I removed the rear wiper. 300+ days of sunshine and zero snow means I don't need it so I wanted to clean up the rear end. I will probably re-route the water line and do the makeshift IC sprayer when I get bored one day. I couldn't find a decent plug that I liked so I cobbled one together with various parts from the hardware store. I also had to borrow a 2-jaw puller from the parts store to remove the wiper from the motor. I've seen some videos on other methods of doing this but they seem sketchy and open up the posibility for damage. The 2 jaw puller makes this portion of the work about 15 seconds worth of easy.

    Parts used to make my plug... painted a specialty bolt gloss black and then used some rubber and metal washers to bring it all together. Took some grinding with the dremmel and a little "enginuity" to make it all work.

    For anyone trying to do the same, each of those yellow plugs is a panel clip. There are also two more in the middle.... notice they are missing?? I broke them and I was even using a panel puller!!!

    Luckily the parts store had a near perfect match. These worked perfectly and thus far nothing rattles and everything is holding good as new.

    Check my build thread for airbox mods...you will get significantly more flow of you remove the lid resonator, the fender well resonator, and remove the flapper tube. Punching holes also works :P

    So my 60mm TB has been on the shelf because I couldn't (easily) solve the coupler problem. I bought the SXTH cold pipe thinking it was larger and would be able to be used but it didn't work so I got with XE and bought the ORCP.... I wish I had bought the 3TBS before starting this process as it would have been nice to complete it all at once when everything was off and it would have made fitting the ORCP a little easier (I think at least). I ended up having to pop the hood a second time after my initial installation and test drive and modify my installation but i don't believe this would have been an issue had I installed the 3TBS at the same time.

    after everything was out... using grade 8 bolts I had laying around to plug the holes before I connected the coolant lines to create the coolant bypass

    Aparently I never snapped a photo of the repaired 60MM TB... and it is too late now!! hahaha, but the 60MM TB has been repaired. Used JB Weld on the threads when I drove the nipple in and filled the crack as well. For the final installation, I ended up banding both sides of the joiner to ensure a tight seal on both sides. When I get the 3TBS I think i will be able to use only one worm gear clamp rather than two. However, its really just an aesthetics thing and it doesn't bug me either way. The install was super clean and works perfect. Fitment to the OEM IC and the 60MM TB is 100% perfect.

    The 60MM has been on all week... It's immidiatly apparent that the throttle is more responsive. I think the MT guys must be even more happy with this than the AT and DCT guys... reason being, when driving in shit traffic at low speeds, the car wants to lurch forward without much of my control. It's like dropping the clutch hard every time I put the slightest pressure on the peddal in slow-n-go traffic. On that note, it is a little frustrating and I don't think MT guys have this issue. However, the benifits outweight this as it picks up quicker at low end RPMs and when driving at speed it responds quicker to the throttle when I want to pass a vehicle. It's especially quicker at highway speeds when I need to speed up to go around someone. All in all, this was a very good mod. I paid about $60 for the throttle body and about $100 for the ORCP (lets not talk about the wasted money on the SXTH CP - Which is a fantastic product but simply doesn't work for this application). well worth the $160 and roughly 90 minutes of my time.

    I've already removed the lid resonator... ripped that bitch out the second I pulled it open and saw it there. Saw no purpose for it so I just grabbed it and gave it a good tug. Came right out. I began to try to remove than fender well resonator but realized there is a bolt on the inside that is a straight mother fucker to get to and abandoned the project for a later date when I am feeling more patient. I punched the holes on the "cold" side because I didn't want to suck in air directly from the motor side of the box.

    You're sucking air through that side already. The increase in airflow negates any increase in temperature. I've measured no significant IAT increase. Just more flow. I also made an extension to replace the resonator and draw cool air from near the foglight. Made a huge difference.

    ORHP that I got in the mail (thanks to Robo for the hookup and to Xe for the immensely high-quality product).

    The ORHP was so easy to install it's silly... took me 30 minutes to complete and that is becuase I pulled the car up on ramps and started working with the car at nearly operating temps! Essentially, it's four bolts to remove and two bolts for the installation of the new part. I didn't snap too many photos because I got the job done, drove it a bit and then made dinner and went to bed.

    Here is the installed product

    The turbo spool is louder in all the best ways and it seems to have added low end power. It also seems as if throttle response imrpoved even after the 60MM TB (which was installed two days earlier.)

    it's hard to tell how many ponies everything has added to the car (if any) as I have done them all in fairly close proximity to eachother. I will say this, my car feel quicker in the low end RPM range for sure. I am not sure If I can say I've gained anything up top as it is harder to tell. I know the end all for this portion of the discussion is "did you dyno" but dyno time isn't cheap and most of these mods are well documented which is also why I didn't go into a ton of detial on my installation. If anyone has questions, let me know. I am getting omre and more familiar with this car by the day.
