#58 of 151 Hyundai Sonata Speed...
Jul 05, 2006 (11:48 am)
Hey Ive purchased a used Hyundai Sonata GLS V6 2001. I like the car, but i think some modifications are needed. I am interested in replacing the sound system but thats later on. First, I would like to remedy the speed factor. I beleive the stock HP of the Sonata is (correct me if i am wrong) 170 HP. I have an automatic. Speed wise for acceleration, it will be behind a modified manual. Is it possible to boost the performance so that i could make the car fast? Questions below:
How much will a spolier cost (i heard it boosts about 5 hp)
How much will a transmission change to manual cost? (heard thousands)
I found no premade turbos for the sonata. Though i know you can put a turbo on any car. Can anyone help me design one that i can purchase?
Nitrous. Nitrous. Nitrous. Is there a nitrous kit i can put on my sonata?
Ive heard of a manual boost you can put in your steering wheel that feeds your car pure gas which gives you a manual boost. However you're susposed to have a guage dial to track it. Anyone heard of anything like that?
Is there a cold air intake i can put on my sonata and whats the cost?
I know its a lot of information, but if anyone can help me out it would be greatly appreciated.

I'm surprised to hear that. My 06 Sonata came with a cute spoiler on the back with a built in brake light. I can't believe the dealer can't find that for you. None of the cars on his lot have them??

How much did the spoiler add to the price of the car?

Not a dime. There were two GLS Sonatas on the lot with spoilers and one LX model with a spoiler and moonroof. I searched the sticker on my car and the spoiler is not even mentioned. The other GLS was white and I just sold a white car, too hard to keep clean, so I chose the silver blue one. I paid $16,995 before tax title and license. I think it adds so much to the appearance. The Saturn I just sold had one just like it on it. But if these cars have the spoilers on the lot, surely a dealer can add them. I can't imagine any part that is not available to them to do so. If you are buying new, insist they add one.

I asked my dealer about a spoiler and they have apparently put some on for other Sonata buyers. They get them from a supplier in another town and they look like a spoiler for the Accord. He never got back with me on a price, but I have seen them on the net with the integrated brake light for around $235 painted. I don't trust myself to install it myself without screwing something up.

There must be a mistake. You should be able to lock all your doors with the remote key fob, or by pressing the power door lock button on the driver's door panel. Unless you are referring to the doors automatically locking upon movement of the car. This is a feature built into the locks, but must be activated by the dealer. It's not activated because you can set the speed of the car for it to engage at. Take caution that some dealers may want to try and charge you for this. Many reviews in these boards have been able to get it done. Search the rest of these reviews regarding "Hyundai Sonata"

So buy one on EBAY and get someone who knows something to install it for you.
Installation even with the light takes less than 45 minutes - start to finish.
