Default Hyunday Pony Turbocharged DrAG eDItION by GzK


first sorry for my bad english but i'm french from Guadeloupe .

i will try to share with u my drag accent/pony

the car project is based on a 99 hyundai accent/pony X3 1.5 DOHC 16V it's called "GT" edition in my country .

but i don't keep the 1.5 dohc engine and it's been swapped by a 2L DOHC BETA 1 engine from a 99 hyundai Tiburon and going to be Turbocharge with a megasquirt based stand alone completely build by me on my own spec .

some pict to show you the thing :

i had started from scratch and need to build the passenger side engine mount to fit the tiburon engine there . after that i order a cheap chinese no name turbo kti on ebay to get some stuff i will need later , sell other and use the T3.T4 turbo and manifold to prototyping and blank assembly the whole .

i'm going water/air intercooler , the car is build for performance only , no daily driver care .

after some fiting and custom build mount :

remove everything to clean the engine bay and change the color of the paint to match the final car color :

to install the fidanza alumnium flywheel i had need to make an adapter , the part exist stock in the automatic version but in my country auto car isn't easy to find :

the one i have done :

stock HYUNDAI version :

after assembly

start reassemble the engine bay

at this moment everything is brand new or have been rebuild to better than new spec with race or stock part , anti rust and black ht paint .

my big brake kit is a mix between many hyundai car

hub and disc from tiburon , double piston caliper from a hyundai santa f

Custom build passenger engine mount and polyurethane filled .

all the engine mount have been filled like this to stop engine mouvement .

the mecanic fuel pressur gauge is replaced by an electronic one .

now i work on the intercooler water piping and the coper heat exchanger for the ice box

in this configuration i have 2 setting , a road setting where the water will pass on a radiator and don't need ice for daily driving by example , and a race setting when the radiator is bypassed and i use ice to get lower water temp .

some bling lol :

hi had some overheat issue so i change my radiator setup with a oem fan rather than the ebay slim fan help me reduce the engin temp :

old :

new .

Good show sir!

I wanted to find a Pony truck and give it the same treatment, but that's all dreams. You brought it to life in the coupe!

That's a lot of work and quite a project. Did I see that you have megasquirt info displaying on an Android device? That's pretty awesome. I have no sound at work, I may be mistaken.

Looks like a very fun and time consuming build.

But I have to ask, who was the genius who hooked up the wastegate top port to the oil pressure line? LOL

thanks for your comment i will try to answer in order

the pony in my country are more popular thant the first tibby . the tibby was a berline car as the elantra , and people prefer french or european car . it not very long time that hyundai comme popular here .

i don't think a would be able to give you dyno number because there isn't any dyno here lol

the best i can do is measure with embedded device .

the megasquirt is home made with a bluettoth port com so i can get info on any android or pc bluetooth device .

my first work is computer and i have build many embedded computer so make the both communicate it's just a fun time .

i dont' have lsd for now for 2 reason .

the getz gearbox is a diesel one (CRDI) so it's longer thant the longer elantra gearbox .

so officialy and don't know which lsd it take because it's look like a std accent gearbox , i use the stock pony axle but i don't know if internally it's the same .

i haven't finish to test it to see if the engine is happy with the longer gear ;

so when i will sure i will buiy a qaife .

for the last , the wastegate is not conected to the port oil lol , its just to protect the port from debris the time i cut some metal .
