Foggies are not a standard item on Aussie Elantra's. Only the top of the range gets those, and they are an optional extra on the base model.

OMG!!!

Finally got my adjustable trailing arms through! Only took...what...2 months!!??

Good 'ol Shark Racing.

Anyway, got them and the look the goods.

Unsure as to whether I will fit them to this car...or the car I am thinking of getting! Its not an Elantra, but shares all of the exact same suspension and had 90% same interior.

Maybe....

I can't help but notice a month or 2 after I posted a picture of the rear adjustable trailing arms I found (for another car). Same basic design I came up with.

Hi guys, haven't posted in a while as I haven't done anything to the car! Still yet to get my adjustable rear trailing arms fitted to the car...but I tinted the tail lights yesterday as they were, well, rather bright!

Anyway, I tinted them and clear coated over the top...rubbed them back wet with some 1500 grit paper. I then polished them so they are shiny again. Came up alright!

Cheers popeye...

I also have been tossing up the idea of throwing on a small turbo...not for huge power but for a bit more day to day poke. I am thinking of a small BB unit like a GT17 or GT20. The GT17 comes on the Saab 2.3ltr engines and would work well on the Beta2 engine.

I turbocharged my last car, it was a similar car to the Sentra over there in the US. I make turbo manifolds, dump pipe and exhausts for guys over here who want them so it will be a relatively simple exercise.

See what happens.....

Great looking ride! If you do the turbo project, please keep us updated. The XD generation has been a tricky beast to turbo with reliable results - but if you can figure it all out, the HD might become a true tuner's sleeper!

Yeah the thing is too I will not be running high boost...I plan to use no more than say 6psi. The reason for that is I want to keep everything as simple as possible, and the way I plan to do it...it will look stock.

And by keeping boost levels low it will make fuel management a little easier too. Well...I hope!

Good point. From what I have read, it seems that the fuel management is the greatest hurdle to overcome, and the problems present themselves at high boost. Hopefully your BCM module can figure out what to do with the extra air.

The car is looking great as always. The turbo sounds like a fun project too.

Thanks Alex2004GT!

As for the fuel management...

I should be able to keep the stock fuel system and run an add on system that will control its own small injector. I will use a one way valve in line with the MAP sensor, so that way it will never see positive pressure and will operate as per normal.
By doing this too it should keep the stock management thinking there is anothing going on that shouldn't be, and the tuning will be easier as the ECM shouldn't "learn" itself back to normal...as can happen with piggybacks on newer cars.

It also makes removal a snap too...should I need to.
