I was interested to hear feedback on anyone who has run a tune on their car for more than a year? Interested in both remaps and tuning boxes and how reliable the car has been along with how consistent the tune is?
Thanks I understand all the above but still good to hear how people are getting on long term. Is the gearbox and clutch ok? Any fault codes or other issues that potentially could be linked to the remap.This ^ !
Forge Motorsport does tunes as well. A good tune will enhance performance of the car, not hinder it.
Long term, there is no change in the tune nor does it pose issues for the engine, as long as it’s a good one.
Stick with a tune, that will support any modifications you have or are planning. All of which are bolt on modifications.
Remember, as soon as you tune the engine you’ll most likely void the warranty. In most instances, Hyundai doesn’t approve of ECU tuning, so keep this in mind when proceeding. A swap able tuned ECU is the best bet.
Mines doing fine and I'm at the higher end of 304 whp. A lot depends on how you drive the car and how it's tuned. Thrash it and they won't last but this is true for even a stock VN or i30N.Thanks I understand all the above but still good to hear how people are getting on long term. Is the gearbox and clutch ok? Any fault codes or other issues that potentially could be linked to the remap.
How would one go about getting a swappable tuned ECU and not even sure what that is?
Unfortunately that no longer happens with Ford and Mountune. No warranty friendly remaps/mods anymore.I wish Hyundai would partner with a performance brand under warranty like Ford does with Mountune where you keep your warranty. Makes you wonder if they know it’s not a good engine to remap
That’s good to know so I need to build in cost of upgraded clutch thenMost i30N models with higher mileage (40k km and more) and a remap with 450NM+ will suffer from clutch slip.
Most clutches cannot even hold 450NM after 40k km, even if those km were driven stock. So either do a super soft remap or upgrade the clutch.
Up until now this is the only weak link that is directly related/impacted to a remap (when you don't wanna do any other hardware changes).
Other weak links such as intercooler and hpfp do not suffer from a remap as much as the clutch does.
