I have a 2013 veloster turbo. Does any body know how much power can it take before I need to rebuild the engine?

Many factors here.

-2013 engines have know engine failures potentially, the rods and pistons shit the bed

-Transmission type?

-Mods?

Ideally a g4fj engine built without extras can put out a decent amount power
--upgraded rods and pistons
--upgraded bearings and bolts

Obviously with a tune.

6spd AT - max known is 336hp

6spd MT - currently has no limit as far as I know. As KDM tuners is still pushing the limits

7spd DCT - I'm not sure on this one

The OEM turbo can handle up to 21psi without issues but can damage the stock internals at that pressure

Many tuners cap the 13's in the 230's whp area. I'll take em higher if mods and maintenance are proper and proper fuel is used.

Many VT engines of all years blow due to improper mods, fuel, maintenance, or bad tune. 13 and some 14 are worst due to weaker engine internals.
