  1. Shift Knob Crooked

    Veloster Turbo Problems / Help
    How did the R-Spec knob come off? My cap has been spinning freely since it was new and I really don’t feel like bringing it in for “troubleshooting,” while I also don’t want to risk damaging it by removing it incorrectly. Thanks! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Exhaust question

    Veloster Performance
    I wouldn’t recommend looking to “get a deal” on an old exhaust and just hoping for the best. The odds are great that nothing will line up very well and there will be a lot of chopping, hacking, and welding. Also, you’ll probably need the factory exhaust flange to connect to the downpipe or work...
  3. Cost to hit approximately 300WHP

    Veloster Performance
    Focusing on the cleaned up tune and the fun stuff like turbo-back exhaust and intake will absolutely nail your “slightly modified” goal. I need to get my tune (looking at LAP3 right now so I can just swap ECUs and keep my stock one unaltered). I’m also getting a new intercooler, as I currently...
  4. Exhaust question

    Veloster Performance
    Hanger/bend locations, diameter, muffler and resonator locations, etc. If you know the target diameter you need, just have a muffler or speed shop create an exhaust system for you. I prefer stainless steel end to end because I’m sure I’ll keep this car for a while as I compete more, so making...

    Put in a GFB Respons TMS diverter valve and MAC solenoid. Still figuring out which tuning option I’ll go with once I get my FMIC ordered. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Three failed discs in my cervical and lumbar regions say otherwise. But yes, I had the car in the air on stands, and the necessary contortion was a bit too aggressive. So a lift, or just get a speed shop to do it when I get the LSD put in. But hey, great job on passing judgment. Sent from...

    Got the strut tower brace in, but I’ll need a lift to deal with the downpipe, or just have a shop do it later. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  10. 2nd gen oil change woes

    Veloster Maintenance
    Are you changing the oil on completely level ground? I'm a bit lost on how you're not able to get all of the oil out of it. I'm at 5800 miles and done 3 changes on it, and 3 changes on my wife's 2018 Kona, and I haven't had issues with taking the full capacity of the change or not draining all...

    Now I just need my Brembos and rotors to get here before I take another one like this... LOL
  12. 2019 R-Spec

    Veloster Turbo Discussions
    OK, I got my new wheels and I weighed the stock R-Spec wheel...24.00 pounds. My new TSW Geneva 18x8 wheels are 20.2 pounds, while these are right at 24 with a couple wheel weights. The stock tire was 20.8 pounds with 5700 miles on it.
