I'm new to the forum and have a 6-speed manual (quite hard to find) 2018 Elantra GT with the 2.0 engine. I'm quite happy with the car and the (roughly $3000 under MSRP) price I was able to get it for really helped my budget. A friend liked my car so much he went out and bought his own new (and fully loaded with every factory option) 2018 GT Sport which he also likes a lot.

I see that Hyundai Canada list a factory accessory axle back 'performance' exhaust for the 2.0 engine (and one for the 1.6T engine as well).

As it's hard to find on their website, I grabbed the attached screenshot. No P/N or manf are listed.

Does anyone know who makes these? What about a possible US based source? $825 seems a bit on the high side but I like the bolt-on aspect + that it's a factory offered part.

TIA,
Andy

Unless you're interested in the learning experience of doing the exhaust work yourself I'd find an exhaust specialist in your area.

We have a few here in Toronto where you just drive up, and they will quote you on the fly and let you listen to the notes different types of exhausts make, and if you want to proceed will then install a custom exhaust for you.

Exhausts are fairly universal as long as they're being cut and welded. Most of the price you pay for an axel-back or catback kit is the convenience of a specially designed bolt on.

I used to have the 2018 GT GLS and I bet you'd get that engine to do some more work if you went full high flow from downpipe and cat back.

Or straight piped it obviously..

I wouldn't be susprised if you could make more wheel power than the stock sport/n-line with a good intake, straightpipe, and tune(damnfastdd has a 2.0 tune).

The exhaust mods you mention (other than an axle back) would likely void the factory drivetrain warranty so are not something I want to do at this point. So far I've only fitted a K&N which has made a very slight difference (better induction sound though). To be honest not looking for huge power increase, just a more sporty tone like it should have had from the start.

I've worked with exhaust shops before on other cars that I've owned and knew that was an option here but as this is a new car I wanted something that could be bolted on/off (preferably by me) versus permanently welded on. I'm fairly sure that to save time and effort most shops would probably just re-use the existing 2-bolt flange and section of pipe over the axle and then weld another muffler on the end which means if I ever sold this car on, I've have to buy a replacement stock muffler as modded cars tend to not retain the same value over a bone stock one.

Thanks for the reply.
