Hyundai in the US has partnered with California-based tuner Bismoto Engineering to prepare a 447kW-plus version of its Elantra GT (Hyundai i30 hatch in Australia) for the 2012 Speciality Equipment Market Association (SEMA) show next week.
In order to extract such astonishing power from the Hyundai i30's 1.8-litre four-cylinder motor the entire engine had to be rebuilt using a host of new Bismoto parts including steel rods, injectors, an intake gasket, web level 2.4 camshafts and a large turbo kit.
Additional engine upgrades include Kinsler fuel filters, custom headwork by Portflow, Golden Eagle sleeved block and intake manifolds, Spearco intercooler, NKG Iridium spark plugs and an AEM 320lph fuel pump and water methanol kit.
Chassis enhancements have also been made to help the car cope with the extreme loads. There’s a full roll cage, coilover suspension and sway bar upgrades. Additional work includes an Action 2MS clutch, 18-inch Buddy ClubP1 Racing SF Challenge wheels and a Burns stainless muffler with exhaust hardware.
Exterior modifications include an ARK bodykit with bonnet and aero bits.
