Alright I might as well make one of these like mkjh has. So here we go.
I have a 2005 Hyundai Elantra GLS that I bought in 2015 as my first car. I never would have thought that there would be a forum page that's meant only for the Elantra xd and xd2! What luck that I find knowledgeable people who actually care about there elantras! Anyway I bought the car with 18,468 miles on it. It still has a new car smell to this day! I really would like to fix up this car but am not sure what about to do exactly. I would really like to put a turbo on it but I still want the car to be reliable for many many years to come. I'm willing to wait till next year to save up money if I decide to do that. But really right now I've been doing handling/appearance modifications. So far I've gotten some new rims and tires. They are drag dr-34 17x7.5 with kumho esta pa31 tires. I also had my resonator deleted and I put a new muffler on. I also put window tint on. Recently I put a dc sports strut bar on. I've always wanted a carbon fiber hood but I just don't know if I would regret doing it or not. I also would like to do a break upgrade and put the tiburon sway bar on. I'm getting the euro taillights soon and will post a picture of what they look like. I've wanted to make more power while keeping the car reliable. Boring the throttle body and intake manifold seem to be a good route to go. I know where I can get the throttle body done but am not sure where to get the intake manifold done at. Does anyone know? I was going to buy them used on eBay instead of sending in mine. I do have another car to drive anyway even if I sent in my own. I want to do headers as well. I'm nervous to do a cold air intake because of rain and moisture. I heard you can make more power on the stock intake anyway. I live in a state where it snows 6 months of the year and was debating whether to get coilovers or not. I mainly want them be cause the stock Elantra shocks and springs seem very soft to me. This is getting pretty long so I'm just going to leave you with a few pictures. This will now be the page where I ask questions and post updates. Thanks for be so helpful guys!
