How did you do the calipers?
Listen carefully,... People in this forum and Facebook hate Caliper covers.... I absolutely freaking love them... I am a clean freak, I hate looking at dirty grimy break dust and calipers and wheels. My solution is to cover them.. I don't need a $1500 big break kit, stock brakes work plenty... Those who do spend that power to you.. I had these made from MGP in the powder coated Yellow and laser engraving with the Hyundai logo... Get compliments all the time and for the people that say they're ricer, go pound sand.. Mark from SXTH element said and I quote" You're car is the cleanest Elantra Sport we've ever worked on" I take that as a compliment and shows my dedication to the brand... I don't care how many things you do to your car if you don't take care of it what is it all for...? I'm religious with my cleaning methods and my car is 5 years old next month... I'm retired at 42 and spend the majority of what sanity I have left on planning and execution. Sorry for the essay, if you want more info or pics on them DM me .

Hit the dyno this morning. Not quite what I was expecting but the car feels good so I'll take that nice increase in the top end. Just a couple more things to take care of and she's ready for an 8 day road trip with a track day in the middle.

Very surprised by these numbers, my car made 221hp and 270 ft pounds on the stock turbo. I have the Dyno image of 217 and 267 at the wheels. The hp number is decent but what's with the low torque number? My exhaust is stock except for the SXTH downpipe and I know you have a different one. Could that be it?

Different type of dyno. Per a google search, this one tends to read a bit low.

Update on the above turbo install, long story short, there was an issue with the install that resulted in a failure of the center section. Unfortunately I found this out while doing some canyon runs and had to limp the car home while it was leaking oil. Probably lost about 1/2 a quart, so not bad. Car has been sitting in the garage for 3 weeks now and hasn't moved because I had a long vacation planned that I ended up doing in my company lease vehicle, then had to travel for work. But, hoping to get her fixed up this weekend with a Pure Turbos Stage 2 stuffed K03 from KDM Tuners. We'll get it tuned up fairly mild, shooting for ~280whp. This turbo is capable of 350whp but I'm going to wait until I can get a better clutch in the car (and possibly a limited slip) before I shoot for those numbers...

Gloss black 3M vinyl wrap on the roof, highly recommend. makes the whole car looks much more sleek, aggressive, and lower, granted i already have it on lowering springs. the sunroof trim was dirty when I got it wrapped in the shop which is why it sticks out, i found a shop that did the roof+antenna for $240USD. transforms the whole car.

Quick wash, running errands, K&N drop-in, then ran into this one! Only see another one about once a month or so where I am in North Texas, so I always get excited. Looks stock. View attachment 18007
I stole your idea but in electric blue :). i actually used your car as a reference to the guy doing the vinyl, thank you man.

This actually took a few days because nothing went my way (as evidence by the duct tape holding the pod in that has a replacement coming Tuesday). This is a result of the firmware on my ECU being too old for the SXTH EK1Pro to read the car specific CAN channels, so I can only get channels through regular OBD2. Unfortunately the stock map sensor only spits out 22.5psi max on OBD2, but reads up to 28psi with the car specific CAN that I can't use. So it sort of forced me to get a boost gauge since this turbo definitely reads above 22.5 psi...

Also you should definitely get rid of that mechanical gauge and do a digital setup.. the vls gauge I have has a ridiculous response time it's amazing.
