    aw c'mon.

    Somebody has to take the plunge first. I want to see those rods. Brace yourself for peer pressure.

    Hyundai will DEFINITELY NOT be offering any staged kits for the car. They don't even have a performance division, much less any oem aftermarket support in the states.

    I would start planning some other way to tackle it.. With bolt ons, you are still going to be pretty safe from issues with warranty claims since they have to prove the modification caused whatever failure you may have. The biggest piece of advice if you do use bolt ons though and have issues, install the STOCK intake system BEFORE you take it to the dealer for a claim.

    If you have engine issues, it will be EASY for them to point fingers at the aftermarket filter/system sucking something in and causing damage.

    It will be much harder for them to place them blame on your aftermarket springs/exhaust, etc. for causing engine issues.. LOL..

    Things to stay away from if you are worried about warranty also are anything tuning related.. The minute you take out/flash your ECM they will probably be able to figure out that it was modified.

    Stick to basic bolt ons, weight reduction and suspension and you will be ok as far as warranty's go.

    I heard that too...in USA they are coming out with performance parts for Veloster cars.

    Will installing Oil Catch Can void the warranty or not ?

    haha... no.. installing a catch can will void nada.

    I highly doubt their 'performance' division is actually coming here.. I wouldn't believe much on ******.. Even so, their 'performance' division doesn't consist of much but suspension as far as I have read.

    Cool Wideband not a gauge

    Wideband is an oxygen sensor that is more accurate than the normal one, not a gauge. It is intended to give accurate information such as air-fuel ratio, etc. See Innovate Motorsports on how to use it with
    an LC-1 and an OT-2

    means 'painting' the wheels with plasti-dip. It is pretty much like a rubbery/plastic coating instead of painting wheels..

    will give the wheels a 'matte' slightly textured black look.
