    Hyundai Veloster Turbo Problems/Help
    Has anybody even checked their grounding systems on their cars? You do realize that Hyundai DOES NOT GROUND THEIR CARS TO BARE METAL but ground them over the factory paint? So the only ground connection your getting from your main ground wire of the battery is the screw holding it to the metal...
  2. Manual Trans. Reverse Lockout

    Hyundai Veloster General Discussion
    You're modification is what inspired me to do the same albeit in a different way. I was actually going to duplicate your setup but the yellow SickSpeed knob I have was from another build and I had to have it in my Hyundai so the previous car in some way could live on in the Hyundai. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‰πŸ˜...
  3. Instrument cluster lighting

    Hyundai Veloster General Discussion
    Replace the adjuster. It's a rheostat or resistive type of control that over the years can go bad or just plain wear out. Either replace it or get a electronic control cleaner to clean the switch control. CRC makes a good one for just that purpose. Good luck.
  4. 91 or 93

    Hyundai Veloster General Discussion
    @jkt1954 is correct about the ethanol or lack of it. If you can find a pure gas or 100% real gas the better. I use 93 100% gas even though I'm not turbo as of yet. πŸ˜‰ All my cars have used pure gas over the last 20+ years with great results. Normally aspirated engines have high...
  5. Manual Trans. Reverse Lockout

    Hyundai Veloster General Discussion
    Ironically I did override my reverse lockout so that I could use a shift knob that I liked but after driving it for a couple of weeks like that reverted to modifying the factory boot assembly setup, still keeping my new shift knob and modified boot retainer, and still have the capabilities of...
  6. Throttle body upgrade - 57mm VT to 60mm Elantra TB

    Hyundai Veloster Turbo Performance
    Once you start getting on the throttle you'll really notice a more efficient acceleration. Highway speed roll on's are easier and at wide open throttle to redline you'll really feel the hydraulic valve/ cam actuation come into effect. It reminds me of V-Tec from the Honda's I've driven and...
  7. Throttle body upgrade - 57mm VT to 60mm Elantra TB

    Hyundai Veloster Turbo Performance
    Looks good and the water bypass looks good as well. Give us some feed back on how the car does now with the bigger throttle body. πŸ‘
  8. Previous Car -- What were you driving before your Veloster?

    Hyundai Veloster General Discussion
    1993 Toyota Paseo. Lived this car and learned how to heel toe down shift with it. Pedal placement and distance was perfect for it. 😍 Completely rebuilt the car mechanically and took 6 months to complete. New Exedy clutch and flywheel with tons of custom chassis bracing to make it a solid...

    No not you. I posted to the wrong forums as a reply to you. I'm involved with several Hyundai forums and replied with a wrong answer to your question. πŸ€­πŸ€—

    This should help.

    Check out SoCalGarageworks for some air bags. They've got 4 different types to choose and for how big a wallet you have. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‰
  12. Timing Issue and Engine Knock

    Hyundai Veloster Turbo Discussion
    I doubt it's a timing issue as these cars have and use a steel timing chain which should last the lifetime of the car. Any engine codes coming up on the dash or check engine light. Have it checked at a nearby auto parts store for free to see what may be the problem. Other than that the...
  13. Naming rights.

    Hyundai Veloster General Discussion
    Old thread revived. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‰ I don't have a Veloster, yet but eventually will have the heart of a Veloster turbo in my Accent. Close enough, no? πŸ€¨πŸ§πŸ€” I do call the car HyperDai though as it's a good name for her. Hyperdai is similar to Hyundai and since I am always hyper at everything I do, it gets...
  14. Raves when shifting.

    Hyundai Veloster General Discussion
    There is a clutch switch at the top of the clutch pedal mount that can be disconnected to help alleviate the revs hanging up between shifts. Don't confuse the start switch at the bottom of the clutch pedal mount as it's needed to start the car. Unplug the top switch, take it for a spin on a...

    EBay would also be a good source for an OEM wheel. I've bought several Hyundai OEM parts from ebay brand new at some very good pricing. Good luck with your find. πŸ‘
  17. Electrical/Power problem with 2013 Veloster Nav

    Hyundai Veloster General Discussion
    Good thinking about the ecu swap. Interesting that it would do that unless the tunes ecu had some incompatibility issues with your car. Hope it works out and problems solved on a permanent basis. πŸ™πŸ½πŸ‘
  18. CEL got me confused...

    Hyundai Veloster General Discussion
    Like nvyseal states use a better grade gas. Since the car is older I would try a higher octane rating like 91 or 93 instead of the 87. These are high compression engines and knock comes easy if you lug the engine at lower rims. You should now have the info you need to rid this issue and be...

    Check out the app Pure Gas, it's in any App Store, and there's also a website too.

    Hyundai Veloster Oil
    What he said. Been doing this since day one with my Hyundai and try to keep it 93 octane. All my cars I've owned I've stayed away from ethanol contained gas. Never ever had fuel system issues with pure gas. πŸ‘πŸ˜Ž
