Hey there---so as we stated in our Veterans Day Sale (coupon code: VETERAN2015) we're going to be adding a product a day through out the end of the year---you can check back here daily to see what we're up to! Some products we'll be Veloster specific and others more generic. The special pricing will last 48 hours before it goes back up to our everyday normal low prices!

First up is Motul 8100 X-cess 5W-40 Synthetic Motor Oil and Filter Kit! Our Veloster Challenge series Veloster Challenge - Veloster Racing is sponsored by Motul and all the competitors run the product with fantastic results---here's a bit of info about it and then a link to our sale-thanks!

Motul 8100 X-Cess 5W-40 and Oil Filter Kit - Advance Automotive
Motul 8100 X-cess
It is specifically designed for powerful and recent cars fitted with high displacement engines, gasoline direct injection and turbo Diesel and catalytic converters. Numerous car maker approvals make this product a multi-purpose and is especially recommended when the car is under warranty. Suitable for leaded or unleaded gasoline, diesel fuels and LPG. The OPEL/GM diesel LL B-025 standard requires two main properties to the lubricant such as high HTHS and very low volatility to drastically decrease oil consumption. Motul 8100 X-cess 5W-40 is especially recommended for OPEL 2.0 and 2.2 DTI engines (extended drain interval by computer on board). The ACEA B4 performance requires an outstanding detergent/dispersent power and a better viscosity increase resistance due to soot produced by direct Injection diesel engines (except VW unit injector engines that require MOTUL Specific 505.01 5W-40). The MB 229.3 standard is more stringent than 229.1 in terms of ageing resistance (extended drain interval by computer on board ), detergent/dispersent power (ACEA B4) and requests fuel economy performance where 1.2 percentage fuel economy improvement versus a 15W-40 reference.


Motor oil is made from crude oil and is used to lubricate, clean, and cool engines. Types of motor oil include conventional, synthetic, diesel, bio-based, hybrid (blends of conventional and synthetic), and recycled oils. Motor oil varies in weight and viscosity, as well as additives that some manufacturers add to the oil during the refining process. A numerical code system created by the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) grades motor oils according to viscosity--the higher the number between 0 and 60, the more viscous (thicker) the oil is. Most consumer motor oils are graded by two numbers, with the first number indicating cold weather (Winter or "W") performance.

SAE 5W-40

This oil has a weight of SAE 5W-40, meaning it has an SAE viscosity rating of 5 in cold temperatures and a rating of 40 at normal operating temperature. Always check your vehicle's owner's manual to verify that this is the correct weight of motor oil for your vehicle.

Full Synthetic Oil

This oil is a full synthetic oil, meaning crude oil is not used in making it. Synthetic oil can be used in vehicle engines instead of motor oils refined from crude oil, and often provides superior mechanical performance over traditional motor oil, including increased gas mileage and reduced engine wear at extreme temperatures. Its complex method of production means it can often cost more than conventional motor oil.

Hey there-Piercemotorsports Deal of the Day/New Product!!!

Veloster Challenge Tire/Wheel Package - Advance Automotive

The Veloster Challenge race series has raised the envelope of performance for the daily driven cars. Our competitors look for durability and increased overall grip when selecting shoes for the series. Tires need to be able to be driven to the track, abused for hours, and then get everyone home safely again and again throughout the 7 race events. We've looked for a combination that's both affordable, durable, lightweight and provides maximum grip when called upon. The package we've selected weighs in at under 41lbs which is 10lbs lighter per corner and considerably wider! At the 200 Treadwear rating (legal for the series) they will provide massive amounts of grip for lap after lap! These tires do well on daily driven vehicles in moderately dry climates---not for snow/ice/below freezing temps. Here's more info on the tire/wheels!

The Proxes R1R is Toyo's Extreme Performance Summer tire developed for driving enthusiasts looking for capabilities beyond normal street tire limitations. Developed from Toyo's years of grueling on-track experience, Proxes R1R tires are engineered to elevate performance in dry and wet conditions. However, like all Extreme Performance Summer tires, these tires are not intended to be serviced, stored nor driven in near- and below-freezing temperatures, through snow or on ice. It's also essential these tires be stored indoors at temperatures maintained above 15 degrees F.

The Proxes R1R molds a high-grip, silica-reinforced tread compound into an 8/32" to 9/32" deep directional Arrowhead tread design featuring an extra wide footprint to blend handling and performance during spirited dry-road driving with traction in wet conditions. The leading edges of the arrowheads are tapered to stabilize center block movement to reduce the possibility of irregular wear. Multi-Width EVAC Channels improve water evacuation from the center of the tread design to help increase hydroplaning resistance, while their narrow widths at the shoulders increase block size to enhance steering response and maintain block stiffness during aggressive braking.

The tire's internal structure features an advanced competition-inspired modified radial construction for driving hard through the corners and accelerating quickly onto the straight-aways. Twin high-tensile steel belts reinforced with spirally wrapped jointless cap and edge plies control the footprint size and shape. Jointless beads anchor the tires to the wheels while a high-modulus bead compound and slightly angled body plies work together to stabilize the sidewall.

NOTE:

At the end of 2014, Toyo changed the Uniform Tire Quality Grade (UTQG) of their Proxes R1R Extreme Performance Summer tire to reflect a 200 Treadwear rating.

UTQG ratings for Treadwear, Traction and Temperature are based on tests conducted by tire manufacturers and reported to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). These regulations allow tire manufacturers to under-rate their tires' capabilities, but prohibit over-rating them. UTQG ratings are required to be printed on their labels and branded on tire sidewalls.

Toyo assigned the 140 Treadwear rating to match the UTQG Treadwear rating required by competition rules when the Proxes R1R was introduced, however subsequent Toyo wear data revealed the tire line earned a 200 Treadwear rating.

With some competition rules now requiring higher UTQG Treadwear ratings, Toyo decided it was time to officially change the Proxes R1R line's rating to accurately reflect its capabilities.

*In order to help drivers confirm which tire they will receive, we have identified the tires by listing their Treadwear rating on the product Specs tab.

Hello there-me again! Here's our new product/deal of the day (much needed)!!!

Veloster Gorilla Race Lug Nuts - Advance Automotive

If you've owned your Veloster long enough and change wheels often the you've undoubtedly heard of people stripping lugs/breaking studs. Most of this stems from folks running aluminum lugs---they just expand at a different rate from steel and cause binding. These lugs are 10x as strong as aluminum and we'll work perfectly both oem studs and our ARP extended kit (2012-2015 ARP WHEEL STUD kit for Hyundai Veloster/Turbo - Advance Automotive ) . Here's more info:

Hey, keep your wheels on! Gorilla racing lug nuts are forged from steel to be superior in strength and durability. They are double knurled for good grip and easier installation—plus, they're strong on style, too! All of them feature 3/4 in. hex with bulge seats and are available with open ends for use with extended studs, or closed ends for off-road and street. Secure the wheels on your racer with the sheer might—and style—of Gorilla race lug nuts.

Prosport Billet Aluminum Catchcan - Advance Automotive
Prosport Carbon Fiber Catchcan - Advance Automotive

Oil Catch Cans


An oil catch can installs between your crankcase vent and intake system, replacing the traditional factory vent lines and catching oil that would otherwise enter the intake system. There are several advantages to this. First oil build up is reduced; over time oil can build up inside the turbocharger, intake manifold, intercooler, and piping - causing a 'gumming' condition. Second, a catch can prevents oil from getting in pressured turbo plumbing -- a condition that can lead to couplers blowing off under boost. Finally, oil vapor in the intake system lowers combustion temperatures and diminishes efficiency. An oil catch can gives you a little added security, makes sure you're getting the most from your mods and looks great under the hood.




Made from billet aluminum

This kit comes with everything you need for a clean install

include 6an and 8an fitting

Includes Hose

Includes hose clamp

Includes Bracket

Sight level

Drain plug on the bottom

Good afternoon!!! Here's the latest new product/deal of the day! It's an 02 spacer/simulator with a built in CAT from PROSPORT! Helps get rid of the CEL when using catless downpipes/or free flowing exausts. Here's the info!

PROSPORT Mini Cat O2 Sensor CEL FIX (90°) - Advance Automotive

This O2 cel fix actually has a miniature catalytic converter built inside and will help get rid of that annoying check engine light you get after modifying your exhaust or removing your catalytic converter, and sometimes even when installing a high flow catalytic converter.

This O2 cel fix with miniature cat will trick your ECU into thinking the stock catalytic converter is still installed. When you remove your catalytic converter, your post O2 sensor will see higher temperatures and greater flow of unburnt fuel.

As a result this will throw check engine lights (Cel, SES, DTC) typically the error codes will be P0420 (Catalyst System Efficiency Below Threshold Bank 1) and/or P0430 P0420 - Catalyst System Efficiency Below Threshold Bank 2).

For OFF ROAD use only.

Hey there-happy hump day!!! Here's the latest deal of the day/new product from Piercemotorsports!!!


Titanium Header Wrap-2" wide x 25 Ft. with ties - Advance Automotive


Titanium Wrap
2" wide x 25 Feet long
Durable, tightly woven and carbon fiber look. Very pliable and easy to install, no need to wet it before wrapping headers or pipes. One roll will wrap one medium header. This improvement in thermal protection helps to reduce underhood temperatures, resulting in cooler air intake for improved performance. And less heat in the engine bay means less chance of heat soak conditions on vital underhood components. Typical fiberglass wrap is rated at handling 1,200 degrees F of maximum direct heat, while our titanium wrap, is capable of handling direct continuous heat up to 1,800 degrees F.


Our Titanium wrap will not shrink, and is more resistant to temperature, abrasions, chemical and hot oil spills than fiberglass wrap.


Each roll comes with 5 FREE, 14" long stainless steel locking zip ties!

Hello there-me again!!! Latest new product/deal of the day (I missed one yesterday)! Here's the latest from Piercemotorsports-

Veloster Rear Tubular Crashbar - Advance Automotive

The OEM crashbar is a heavy composite weighing just over 16lbs---it's actually very complex with 15 capture points that need to be spot on to hold the bumper/crash sensors etc...We were able to get them all and came in at just over 8lbs or half the weight! That's huge for our racecar/performance---it's out side of the wheelbase so it's worth 3X that weight to us all---and it frees up space underneath that'll allow for a rear diffuser and other cool Aero pieces. Please allow 2-3 weeks for production---the crashbar is seen raw in the pics, but comes powdercoated Anthracite.

Alright-next up on the new product/deal of the day!!!!

Aerocatch Flush Mounted Hood Pins! - Advance Automotive

The AeroCatch is a new twist on the old hood pin concept. Hidden inside the modern, low-profile housing is a stainless steel clevis pin which engages an anodized high-strength aluminum hood pin (650 lb pullout strength). The hood pin and clevis pin are fully enclosed and protected by the aerodynamic thermoplastic housing.

Using the AeroCatch is simple -- even simpler than using conventional hood pins!
To close: Simply lower the actuating lever which is built into the housing. You don't have to line up the clevis pin with the hole in the hood pin. You can even do it blindfolded with one hand behind your back! Press down on the actuating lever to engage the secondary latch and prevent accidental opening. Even if the secondary latch is not engaged, the hood pin is still engaged!
To open: Push on the secondary latch button (if engaged) and lift the actuating lever. The pin is captured inside the housing, so you don't have to keep track of the pins when they are disengaged. The actuating lever gives a clear visual indicator of the status of the pin (disengaged, engaged, or latched).

The AeroCatch can be used in place of hood pins on hoods or trunk lids, or as a door latch. Minor modifications to the housing will also allow it to be used on panels which hinge, angle, or slide in place. The hood pin can be perpendicular to the panel, parallel to it, or at any other angle in between.

This is the original, non-locking AeroCatch. The Flush version mounts from behind the panel, with no flange overlapping the panel. The cutout is exposed and must be cut very carefully for presentable results. Available in paintable black! Sold in pairs.
