    The first modification you should do to your VT

    So as time has gone on here on these forums the first thing everyone asks is, "What is the best performance Mod i can buy first?" or "What should i buy first for my VT?". Well you will soon find out the number 1 issue new vt owners experience is the "Wiggly back end" or "My ass wiggles over bumps so bad". So the very first thing all VT owners should buy even if you do not want to fix up your car is a Rear Torsion bar. I would say that over 98% of the people on these threads or people that have bought this part would agree. Its one of the cheaper mods to buy money wise and will make the car feel a lot more stable. It really is necessary and will also increase the safety factor by making the car more stable in day to day driving.

    SO here are your choices:

    Pierce Motorsports Rear Torsion bar
    $155.00
    Pierces Rear Torsion has been re engineered to be a more robust bar at its mounting points. These bars have a very high stress load at the mounting points and other brands have seen many failures in these locations. This bar will cost you an extra $20 over competitors but worth the money and has a much better Diameter/rate over others which further increases the overall handling.

    Go here or PM PierceMotorsports: Hyundai Veloster Piercemotorsports Rear Torsion Bar

    Whiteline Rear Torsion Bar $135.00
    This Bar is $20 cheaper and works well, but has a less desirable Diameter/rate than the pierce bar. Whitelines bars have also been known to brake right at the mounting points. Whiteline bars are available by almost all the vendors here include Pierce Motorsports.



    In summery both bars will improve the handling of your VT and get rid of most the rear end wiggle. The Pierce bar seems to do this a bit better because of the different diameter/rate. Although both companies will replace these bars if they break, the Extra $20 for the Pierce Bar removes the hassle of having to get another bar sent out. Over all in my Opinion The Pierce bar is the better option and why most people driving VT's have one..

    Hope this helps you guys with the question about what one of the first things you should do to your VT...Of course there will be some debate on what you should by first, but i feel 90% of the members would agree with me. Members please feel free to add your input, also feel free to add anything i left out.. Happy Modding!

    I'll expose my ignorance and ask two things... 1. How hard to install? 2. Any warranty implication?

    Probably on a 1-10 a 3 or 4. You need jack stands or a lift to do it preferably. No warranty worries.

    I did mine completely on the ground. Granted I'm stock springs and all that.

    So my recommendations are:
    0. If you bought a manual, the first purchase should be shifter link bushings....period.
    1. Pierce Strut Bar (front end suspension best bang for buck)
    2. Pierce Rear Torsion Bar (rear suspension best bang for buck)
    3. Rigid Collars (cheapest cost effective suspension purchase)
    4. Intercooler resonator delete ("tork" pipe) (cheapest cost effective performance upgrade)

    These are the things that have made the most notable improvements on the car for me. I could throw the short throw as #5 (no pun intended) but unless you're driving places where you're slamming gears a lot, there's better things to put on the list...like tires...Lol. I have yet to replace mine.

    Yes! Rear torsion bar and rigid collars a must. I'd follow up with a front upper strut brace. All items are money well spent.

    Please please tell me where I can get the shifter link bushings...I really hate how the shifter feels going into 3rd sometimes...

    I try to make a dent, but it
    blends in with all the damage.
