Hey there I'm new to this forum and I'm looking to boost power. I know there is plenty more power to come from these cars and as far as boost is concerned it seems to have a lot of lag. The boost is there basically when you least expect it, dig in the throttle and it is no where to be found.
If anyone can point me in the right direction as to where to start with performance upgrades that'd be much obliged. Thank you in advance for your advice
Btw I'm in Sacramento California if there happens to be anything in the area.

Well I will definitely check into that. Did you notice a power difference with the resonator delete and filter change?
And if you could explain to me the torque app I'd greatly appreciate it.

You will have bolt on intakes available to you soon, and there will be a lot more coming in the next couple months.

If you look at our website, you will see some of the things we have available for now. Also, see our vendor section. Our hardparts selection is going to grow a lot before the end of this year.

You will have lots of options. As far as tuning goes, Tork may be your only option if they can get a car in their shop and start messing with the ECU. There is nothing out yet though :(

Oh yeah! Get talking to Tork. Until he gets a car into the shop, no one can get tuned. And he can't seem to hook up with anyone but he's keen. Most probably free for the first one there too. He's all over tunes for the Veloster Turbo and we have the same motor. I'm guessing he just needs to tweak and test and then we'll have a stage 0 tune. Get an intake on first though if you're keen.
As far as warranty, VT guys who are worried have been getting a second ECU and swapping it out if it needs to go back to the dealership for warranty repairs. If you mod something and the issue could be caused by that particular mod, then your warranty doesn't cover it. If you put on a new intake and you're suspension has issues, you're covered.

We are working on BOV adapters for the different universal valves out there. Due to the small area our stock valve is in, the only one that might fit is the Forge Motorsport valve, and we haven't got confirmation that it fits yet.

We will have several adapters that will make certain universal valves fit to the intercooler. Hopefully by the end of next month.

The Resonator delete pipe will get you a couple HP near the top of the rev range. it's not a lot but it does help.
