As with everything we do, step one is always the dyno, to see what kind power it makes stock. So we got our hands on a 1.6L MT Elantra and bolted it to our Dynapack Dyno. The little 1.6L engine made a pretty impressive 101whp and 97ft lbs of torque.
Now its time to install the SpeedLab K&N intake with our exclusive Power Chamber.
1. Here's the stock Hyundai Elantra engine bay. The big black box on the lower right is the stock air box, which will be suammrily removed.
2. There's a lot of empty space with the air box removed.
3. As you can see, the stock air box has a lot of hoses, ducts and turns, all of which restrict airflow to the engine.
4. Underneath the headlight and inside the fender liner is another big black box with tubes and ducting. This only serves to quiet the engine so that your mom doesn't complain. This is where the filter will be placed.
5. Here's the Power Chamber intake with a K&N washable filter head.
6. The smaller end attaches to the throttle body and the bigger end will go to an elbow shaped tube to connect the K&N filter.
7. Here is the intake installed and ready to rock! Time to put it back on the dyno and see how much power we made.
The results were surprising! 9whp and 7 ft lbs of torque gained with a simple and fast mod, with no loss of power on the low end and plenty of gain from the midrange all the way up to redline.
