I just installed the Turbokits.com Cold Air Intake. After reading reviews here on veloster.org, I find that this is the best upgrade money can buy to add oomph to the Veloster. Along with removing the clutch switch shown on this thread:
Found the fix for the shift lag - Upper/Lower clutch switches. So amazing.
The car is now more fun to drive. I was a little disappointed at how slow the car goes up hill. But now, I am a lot happier after installing the TK CAI. I tested it climbing two hills this morning. 1 hill was on the freeway, I normally downshift to 5th or 4th gear to maintain the same speed. Today, I stayed on 6th to keep it above 60mph. Another hill I take on the street, I normally use 2nd gear to climb. With more torque, I was able to take on the hill on 3rd gear!!!!!
This intake is definitely designed pretty well. Definitely best bang for buck upgrade.
I am really anxious on mating this system with the Axle Back Exhaust from Turbokits.com
Install took about an hour. Since I was installing the HID kit from Diode Dynamics, I already had the bumper removed which made it much easier to work with.
I am not out to race anyone, I just wanted to have a fun little commuter car to drive.
