Nope, No pics, only have pictures of a big gaping hole in my old block at 18,000 miles. I do have a carfax of the donor car because I wanted to make sure of the mileage and maintenance of the engine before I did the swap. There was no engine harness change. everything bolted up no problems

Interesting. I put a R Spec 14 engine that had a manual in my 13 Turbo Ultimate automatic no problems.

Edit: A turbo to a turbo and NAV to NAV swap should all be the same.
Absolutely! A turbo to Turbo would work, But.. A Turbo Veloster Engine which comes with VIN "E" will not fit a NAV which comes with VIN"D" but.. a accent engine or Forte Engine with VIN "E" are Non Turbo, ergo.. Will Fit!

Hello All,

I have a 2013 Hyundai Veloster Base 1.6L. My engine is blown and I'm trying to buy a replacement. So from what my understanding is, I can replace the engine with a 1.6L from a KIA Rio, Hyundai Accent or Turbo Veloster. But what I want to know is, if my VIN's 8th digit is D and the Turbo is E do I have to swap out the ECU as well and would that ECU be compatible with the base Model?
So from your understanding to begin with was wrong, you cant use the turbo engine; we have been trying to tell you that.

NAV Which are VIN "D" will fit another NAV, But.. Turbo which are VIN "E" on the Velosters will not fit! And Vice Versa.. But.. VIN "E" 1.6L from Hyundai or Kia that is not a Veloster Turbo will fit as they are not Turbo! Get it??

OK, Huge Update! So basically, the 2012 - 2017 Accent Engine with VIN E will fit a Hyundai Veloster 2012 - 2017 with VIN D. Reason behind this is because the Transmission in an Accent with VIN E is not a Manual like the Turbo Version, It is an automatic so the Bell Housing Fits and the Wiring Harness is the same. I actually spoke to the Hyundai Service Folk and they confirmed! So That was Awesome for me.. I Now am getting an Engine with only 34k on it. Its like having a New Car lol.. Same ECU and Everything.

it should work fine AS LONG as you remove the flex plate and install the pressure plate/clutch plate.

I have a question. I have a 2012 base Veloster but I'm trying to put a turbo engine on it and trying to see what is the newest Veloster model turbo engine I can put in my 2012 base Veloster 6 speed manual transmission? Thanks for any help
Me too guys have same but I want swap it to same model 2014 hyundai veloster turbo engine can I do it or if anyone have
Make sure to add an oil catch can to your replacement engine. Even a 20.00 kit with baffles works with some good PCV hard tubing. GDI carbon build up is greatly reduced if you can keep those PCV deposits from forming on your valves and in your cylinder/injectors. One more thing and this is very important! Make sure your catalytic converter is clean and not clogged. All those deposits go right into it and melt it clogging it and that can kill your engine due to back pressure. So make sure to remove it and inspect and clean it out if needed.!!! Your last engine may have released some inside so check it out!!! If you do this your replacement engine will give you a long smooth running life. One last thing, if you see lots of oil sludge on the valves of the replacement engine (you can see it when the intake is off, you may need a video probe). CLEAN it and clean the injector tips. Do all before you run it. After you finish all you need to do is add a bottle of Chevron Complete fuel system cleaner every oil change. I worked in the parts and service department for a Hyundai dealership and learned a lot.
Hey bro may you have any idea I have hyundai veloster N/A turbo and wants to swap to veloster turbo engine can I do that

Where’d you buy an engine from? Just curious

2 cylinders are flatline, No Compression. Rebuilding is time consuming and not always the way to go. Id rather just drop a new engine with lower mileage and call it a day. To Rebuild would cost me around $1800, to buy a new engine with lower mileage and a 5 year warranty on parts and labor $2200. The math makes sense..
Where are you finding 5 year for 2200?
