Hello everyone,

Well i figured i start a build thread for my 2015 Trubo Veloster and keep it updated as the days go by. I have huge plans for this little neck breaker.

Today i did the Bov mod. sounds great so far.
Tomorrow i am working on temporary mods.
1.Resonator and Muffler delete with a straight pipe
2.Removing the filter and box, so i can make a custom intake for it.

Now these are all temporary mods. Will replace all of this with the list below within 2 months or so.
Added links and prices for other peoples interests. Also if anyone has input please share.

0.)Tint-$200.00 Limo in the back and legal in the front. Also making my fogs yellow.

Huge investment but i'm keeping this daily clean and show ready. It wont be the fastest car on the road but it will hang and look good.

All this will be done on the same day with a proper tune in the same shop.
So 2 months or so i will have a huge update to add on here.
Tomorrow i will add pics/videos of the temporary Bov mod, intake and straight pipe.

Thanks for reading and glad to be part of the forum.

If you do decide to get that BOV, I would advise you to get it from TurboSocks instead of ImportShark.
Also get a rear torsion bar from Pierce as well. Possibly the biggest missing from your list.

Edit: Forget the Injen. Get a 3.5" intake. Socks, 6EE, 845 and Tork all have ones. And get motor mount inserts.

I would advise you don't waste your money on any HKS knock off BOV. They are all junk no matter where you buy them. Spend another $100 and get what works best for this car; a Synapse DV. Install it correctly and you won't have any problems.

I was told that both of the Bov's are good. Hks is good on a lot of things I agree with you. Thank you and Thanks on the the welcomes too. Really appreciate all of these inputs.
A real HKS is good. Even if its old technology. But, a knock off is just a cheap copy. You get what you pay for.

While I have had good luck with my knock off, I went into it knowing that I may get a dud, and I already know its time is short

I was more in it so I could finally have my cold pipe setup and feel like it will be easy to swap a real one on when the time comes

Great start MGraphics. Really looking forward to seeing some updated pictures. Hey, I'm curious about your short ram intake. The "tube" has a great look. Did you order that from Injen or is that a some type of DIY using the stock inlet tube? Just curious, thanks!

Got a new setup now. Will add pics soon. the old setup was a temp job i did. removed the stock air box and used a spectre filter. was a nice little temp sound fix but now i got the K&N full intake kit setup.
