Hi! While new to this forum, not exactly new to Velosters, having had a 2013 NAV until Jan 2020, when I pulled the trigger on a '20 Turbo R Spec. The NAV was basically stock with TurboKits CAI and axle-back.

This one has or will get some add-on goodies - I love this "baby N". First, a quick background, while at my age I don't intend to go play on track or autoX, I did compete in SCCA autocross, and NASA TimeTrials until '05, when a former IMSA driver blew my engine.

Anyway, current mods include:
Purely cosmetic - Veloster N stock rear wing
*Sixth Engineering 700+ g teardrop shift knob (apparently discontinued);
-- placebo, but shifts 'feel' more certain;
*Boomba Stage 1 OCC
*AFe Takeda Momentum intake (via [email protected])
*Borla "S" axle-back exhaust. - - - these last 2 for better 'breathing';
*RaceChip piggyback ECU chipset
Ordered & on the way - handling oriented:
*Pierce Gen2 Rear Sway Bar;
*Pierce Gen2 VT-1 front strut bar
*Eibach adjustable end links

Considering Pierce 2-point chassis brace & 2-point trunk brace - any thoughts?

Welcome to the club!

I have competed with my vt in scca AX and time trials since I bought it. It’s been too fun.
You could get those braces. I don’t have them.

Welcome!

Ditch the piggyback and do a proper ecu tune from a trusted tuner.

Bracing will depend on what you want to do with the car and class restrictions. I do know you'll benefit from tire and other things before bracing or suspension is really needed in most cases.

Rt660 was the tire to have at yesterday’s AX... not terrible in rain and very fast in dry.
