hey guys, i have a 2016 Hyundai Veloster base, had it for a year, and have decided to start modding it, i know the car wants to spend the rest of its life in eco mode, but my 18 year old ass wants to push it and make it sound like a beauty, so the modding begins. So far for the first set of stuff, i got an Injen cold air short ram intake, a muffler delete, a stage 2 smart tune (not sure if i got scammed, still running tests, repaitned the stock wheels gloss black, repainted the brake calipers red, threw on black mud flaps, red lug nuts, interior LED lights, and then aesthetics: stickers and decals, a japanese towing tag, and a massive carbon fiber spoiler. still waiting on the spoiler, otherwise everything else has been complete.

I still am planning further aesthetic upgrades like bumpers, side skirts and more. But I would love input on thoughts so far. It also sounds like a beast and gurgles on upshifts.

for whoever cares, a quick little update: spoiler still not in yet, who knows when it will be in. But I got rear diffusers from street aero, gonna change the front bumper to a grill, throw on a front lip, some strut rods, black out the tail lights, and for jokes, i got a mini mini spoiler. Also, NOS cushion cans, ill post the link and an image, honestly think its the dopest thing for this shitbox. Planning on blasting my pipes asw!

Yeah, that's awesome! Can't wait to see what else you do. How is that Smart Tune working out though? If it works well for you, might have to get it myself. What else do you have planned?
honestly, i gotta run tests for the smart tune. give me some more time for a proper response, but i think it actually does work. (once again not 100% sure) and as for the car, im pretty much waiting on the parts to come in so I can re design how it looks, rice it out a bit, and I did get blasted pipes on this car, sounds beautiful and deeper now.

Allright, so a little update of whats happening so far. I currently have the stock wheels, I got new tires for the front because my previous ones balded and blew on me because of the camber I had. (2 degrees). I am currently in the process of doing a DIY bumper. I will post this soon. But here are current images and looks of the car.

So currently with the bumper, Im doing a full front grill and mesh, it's been difficult with fitment and everything ecause I dont have a turbo bumper, and at this point don't want to purchase one. So I have dremmeled out the previous bumper buldge, and now plan on doing a custom grill and mesh up front, I did buy the customcargrills.com mesh that was precut, but that was for the turbo model. The plan right now is to buy some mesh, install it behind, using some automotive goop, make custom bumper support on top, and then make a rubber frame to cover up the edges.
