Description Installation Instructions

We are proud to release our Front Mount Intercooler Kit for the 2017+ Hyundai Elantra Sport and 2019+ Veloster Turbo. A lot of R&D has gone into this kit and the results show. An additional 16 wheel horsepower (peak gain) and 4 wheel torque (peak) was gained versus the OEM intercooler on our tuned shop car. We swapped intercoolers right there on the dyno!

Our kit is 100% bolt on with ZERO modification to the car required.

Looking at the dyno graph, you can see how the OEM intercooler struggles to breathe as RPMs climb. Although peak torque gain was only 4 lb-ft, as the rpms climb torque gains are 16+ where peak power gain is!!!

***Please note, you must have our Short Ram intake system installed as this will not work with the stock intake system. We cannot guarantee fitment with other aftermarket intake systems at this time.***.

***2019 Veloster - Dyno test coming soon. Due to ECU limitation, tuning would be essential to maximum gains from this kit as shown in our Elantra sport dyno testing. Tuning solutions coming soon!***

Purchasing this product will eliminate the need for the Resonator Delete Pipe. You can also save some if you have already purchased the Hot Pipe Upgrade.

First, to increase airflow and help take some stress off the turbocharger, we have 2.25in diameter piping mandrel bent to shape. Our pipe size can flow enough air for over 400 horsepower so you can be sure our kit will be sufficient for your build. Made from 6061 Aluminum and powdercoated our signature wrinkle black, these pipes are durable and will look good for a very long time. We also supply factory mounting flanges for the OEM blow off valve, boost sensor, and valve solenoid bracket.

Our intercooler core is where we get serious. We have accumulated about 60 hours of heavy CAD (computer aided design) modeling and CFD (computational fluid dynamics) simulation. After using a 3D scan of the front of the car, we have achieved a fine balance between evenly distributed flow across the core and entry/exit endtanks. We believe it's this efficiency through the core that helps us keep similar throttle response to stock. Our end tanks utilize the casting process to achieve the computer model geometry for power optimization. It is nearly impossible to get our results with sheet metal fabricated end tanks.

This is a screenshot of an early CFD model result that we can manipulate to fine tune things including air speed, mass flow, and calculated temperature. This simulation comes from the CAD model that also helps us assemble parts and visualize their fit and finish. We also use these files to manufacture the different parts of the kit.

We use the very latest in engineering technology to bring a fit and finish like that of OEM. From 3D scanning to CAD models and installation diagrams, we capture every detail!

5 of 5 INTERCOOLER HEAVEN May 13, 2020
Reviewer: ANGEL RODRIGUEZ from HOLLYWOOD, FL United States  
This was absolutely the BEST experience I have EVER had with an aftermarket part. My auto tuner , Auto rite , said it was like it was made for the car at the factory level , easiest fit he has ever seen. Did not have to adjust for my AFE Takeda intake , that is how great it fit. John at Auto rite says it is the best quality parts he has ever seen. Great job SXTH element , I will be getting my ECU tuned and the new BOV AND the dual catch can form them. Just wish they made an upgraded turbo. HIGHLY RECOMMEND this company for all your aftermarket needs..wish I could give 7 stars

5 of 5 Great Product December 23, 2019
Reviewer: Ricky Jost from Grand Rapids, MI United States  
Side by side comparison of this cooler compared to the OEM cooler is all should need to convince you to buy this kit. The hot and cold pipes fit phenomenally and the cooler itself fits so snug right where the stock one was. Install was easy but time consuming! Can’t wait to get on a dyno and see some numbers!

5 of 5 This is a must get July 22, 2019
Reviewer: Peter Hoang from Garden Grove, CA United States  
This FMI is a must for your elantra sport. I definitely felt the better airflow through out the car with my this and my SRI and big mouth ram air intake. I also have the exhaust too, so even without a tune you will already feel the power.
