I have an N with the PP and have noticed that it comes up to temp within a half mile of street driving (nothing hard). It's surprising to me because I had a '16 Veloster Turbo that took at least 3 miles before it would even start to warm up (at least in winter). I was wondering if anyone else has experienced this. Mine hasn't overheated and I have twice driven it 50+ miles, although any prolonged time in N mode does have a "unique" smell that I don't notice in the other modes. I wouldn't exactly say a "burnt" smell, but could maybe be ...


Since I only have about 210 miles on it so far, I haven't really pushed it hard in earnest yet ... a few quick starts and one or two short trips to 100+ mph. My '16 Turbo would run out of gas/air as it passed about 115-6 (according to the speedo) and maybe get to 120 with a tail wind. This N can go there and still have some room left but haven't tried to go further ... yet ;-) That might get expensive if I'm caught ... I have a Passport 9500 I might have to dig out and set up HAHA I haven't used it much because it seems to get a lot of false hits (like every gas station and Walgreens and bank within 120+ feet).

The N w/PP has a greatly improved cooling system, then any other Hyundai. It was done purposefully for track use. However, Hyundai specifically says; "we can't track the N or we void the warranty." Pretty ridiculous, since it was made for this type of use. The N w/PP will top 155+, but is suppose to be governed @ 155. I'm not about to find out either, on the track or road. It's nice to know it has the extra oomph and power surplus when needed but the cost of such a venture, will either be at the expense of your license or warranty, or both.

Here, we can drive over 90+ mph on the freeway, which the norm. If you aren't traveling with the flow of traffic @ 80mph, someone is tailgating you at anything below. Doesn't matter what lane either.
(Posted speed limit; 75)

In other states, I can imagine a massive fine and 1 year suspension of license, or an additional charge of "wreck-less operation["/B], if caught doing anywhere between 100-120+ mph. Resulting in a massive fine, jail time up to 30 days and possible 5 year suspension of license, depending upon location. States like; Ohio, California, Arizona, Georgia, Louisiana, are real problems for such excessive speeds over. In these states alone, you will definately be looking a county jail time.

Not worth it!

Blessing and Peace

On thing I forgot to mention, if you haven't already figured it out. Above the the tach on the circumference, to the right, there are elongated LED's. These are to remind you not to over rev the engine, until it up to operating temps. They are yellow and red. Don't rev it past the each sequential yellow until it disappears. If you continue to surpass or bypass the caution, you risk accelerated wear and possible damage to the engine.

I know the LEDs you mention, but I haven't noticed that they don't light up after warming up. I just thought they were a visual of following the needle. There are LEDs in a horizontal line above the tach that light up in higher revs too. I guess Hyundai thinks driving a stick must need a lot of coaching because they even have the shift and gear suggestions incorporated in the gear number HAHA


On yet another subject, I think they are "augmenting" the exhaust sound through the radio and was wondering if there is a hack to eliminate it. They had that in the '16 Turbo too, and there were some wires to remove from the amp under the passenger seat.

. I have also noticed the rapid warmup time of the coolant. I can start the car from cold and let it sit for a minute while I'm getting ready and within a minute of driving the coolant temp is already at running temps.
