    RE: The Lounge: Version 4.0


    Does it have the stock exhaust?


    ORIGINAL: The Hedgehog

    Yeah maybe if I was racing it, but just fun stuff for normal driving since I don't have a desire to race this car. Probably going to install a new intake manifold or the like those have dynoed at another 10 hp or so. Or some high flow cats to make the exhaust sound nicer.

    Yeah, but the manual coupes come with a really nice one stock, sounds aftermarket and loud already, so no need to change it out, and the nice catbacks already run closer to 2 grand so no thanks lol.

    RE: The Lounge: Version 4.0


    Was only asking because you are thinking about putting in new cat to improve the sound.. since usually it is usually cheaper and more effective to change out the muffler section than the cat.. (esp. w/ the cat you might have to deal w/ CEL issue)

    But for sure, w/ some high flowing cats that will change the sound... !

    Well a new catback is close to 2 grand and high flow cats are around 400, give a lot more performance gain (since aftermarket catback won't do anything).

    But what cars do high flow cat's cause a check engine issue? They are all DOT approved and I have never heard of a problem. Maybe it's a car by car case, but no one gets check engine lights on the g35's.

    RE: The Lounge: Version 4.0

    There's obviously always trade offs.. higher flowing cats just means it has less cells in the cat and the senior in the after cat location sometimes would pick up the resulting composition that would trigger the CEL. (say stock is 400 cells, 200 cells are usually okay (when new), and 100 cells would most likely trigger CEL).. people do things to fool the car.. extended the sensor away from the exhaust flow.. some people leave the downstream sensor in the open air (probably not a great idea..).. and obviously, re-program the ECU.

    I didn't mean to change the whole catback system. Maybe just change out the muffler section.

    But yes, there's some performance to be gained from taking out the cats, but usually require some sort of ECU re-programming to get the max effect.

    RE: The Lounge: Version 4.0

    I wanna straight pipe mine to run out the side of the car and get a cherry bomb glasspack. It might be loud, but it will sound nasty for a Hyundai. I know there would be no performance gain, but could you imagine that thing at 4 grand lol

    It's an idea, it's just there aren't any options for just changing the axle back section let's say.

    I hear ya on the performance and hardships with high flow cats, I know there are always trade offs. Ideally I would get the whole exhaust high flow cats, and the catback + a tune but that would run over 3 grand for maybe 30 HP (10 form exhaust maybe 20 from a good tune), but at that point I feel it would be more cost effective for a mild supercharger set up.

    I assume that with a supercharger setup, you'd want a full exhaust too... ha.. so maybe the full exhaust is a stepping stone, yo!

    RE: The Lounge: Version 4.0

    I hear straight pipe 4 cylinders all the time around here, even the nicer Honda engines 1.8, 2.0 etc etc, make my ears bleed the sound is just horrendous. The Subaru's aren't that bad, but damn.

    Well if the Hyundai was my beater or junker, and it would still pass inspection, I would do it lol.4 bangers sounds crazy bouncing off the rev limiter with stacks out of the hood. Our last count fair demo derby, several cars had this setup. Too funny.

    Too big for the Hyundai. I would lose major back pressure and have to fab up a ridiculous flanged coupler to fit it lol

    I have never actually measured it but i would say it takes about 3/4 of a kilometer to hit 300 klm/hr.
