Yeah, it definitely ran low on oil. I have no idea how it could have lost so much oil in such a short time. My buddy said he knew someone that had a leaky injector and the fuel leaked down into the oil, changed the characteristics of it, and resulted in it basically evaporating/ blowing out the exhaust.
It can happened due to a turbo seal oil leak.

Man, the more you keep running it can lead to more damage. That don't sound good at all.
I just turned it on for that few seconds to record it to capture the sound so it doesnt need to be started again for anyone else to hear it.

It is on its way to Hyundai now via tow truck. The service department said they will probably be able to get warranty approval even though I am the second owner, they just need to diagnose it first.

Yup that's not good :-(
Hard to say if piggyback related or not. Seems it may ran low on oil somehow. Curious what the damage is on it.
I agree. We can at least be sure at this point that going the piggyback route didn't prevent it. When I get it back together I am probably just going to run stock tune and mostly let my kids use it for learning to drive. I have another toy coming to keep me occupied for a while and the VT will just be my more practical option.

You can determine what may have caused nor prevented this until the engine is torn apart.

The service department just called me and let me know that Hyundai Corporate has agreed to pay 60% of the cost of the engine replacement. Yippee...
Maybe I should just try driving it home now and watch it blow up on the street in front of the dealership. I'll bet that would hurt their business a little.

That's shit for news. An estimate of a minimum of $4K (my portion) for something they know damn well happens to most of these engines and they are supposed to be recalling most of them. Something that would be completely under warranty if I wasn't the second owner. That's about a third of the value of the car. This will be the last Hyundai I ever own and will do my best to ensure anyone I know who ever considers a Hyundai or Kia is informed about how they literally have tried to sweep consumer deaths under the rug because of this defect.

I had my engine repaired with $1,300. Did it myself. Please see link below. Hope this help you.

Hyundaioemparts.com
This seems like a good option. I have purchased other parts from them before and didn't think about that. I was looking at maybe getting built internals from kdmtuners.

Used engine with low miles from a 15-17 would be cheaper. Throw in ARP head studs while its out. Good for 300+ hp with good supporting mods and tuning.

Mine started out as a 2016 with 24K miles. Lol. But yeah, I found some junk yard pulls with like 17K miles for around $1300-2300 depending on source.

you could try to report it to the consumer protection bureau or something to let them know other vehicles are having the issue besides the recalled ones.

You will need 13-17 but 15-17 low mileage is best.

I'm curious about 'another toy coming'. 🤔🧐
Best of luck on all this. 🙏🏽👍

So, full update. The reason Hyundai agreed to 60/40 was because the service department did report that I modified it, so I admit that is fair. Hyundai was NOT concerned that I am the second owner, so I respect that. It also appears that the person that told me $4K minimum was quoting the full cost because I was just given a “final” quote of just $1400+ tax. The tax will be based on my 40%, not the full cost of the parts, which is good news too. I wanted to give a full update because it admittedly shows Hyundai in a better light and I wanted to be fair on this forum.

so my assumption of the 1k mark was about right, that's better news man.
