So I just purchased a new red 2020 Veloster N PP. Already loving the pops and crackles. What the first upgrades people suggest? Im more looking for drivability upgrades first, and power upgrades can come down the road. I was thinking the best upgrade would be the rear motor mount. Is the top mount necessary also, or would the rear pretty much fix most of the wheel hop? Also think im going to grab a BOV as I had a Boomba one on the ST I used to own, and love the sound, lol. Thanks.

If you are having wheel hopping issues then the rear mount will help but I heard some people are cracking their transfer and transmission cases because of how stiff this cars is and a solid rear mount might cause this to crack easier.
If you need to modify your Veloster because you like putting your own touches on the car, I say just get a JB4 and call it a day.

Any links to threads where people are having this issue? I honestly dont drive it hard, its simply a daily driver for me. I get on it every once in awhile when driving to and from work, but thats about it. I rarely ever put my foot to the floor. I did install the boomba rmm because its just something ive done in every manual car ive had in the past. I also did an oil catch can from ADDW1. Im thinking an intake, and maybe next year do the short shift plate and bushings.

in the "Hyundai Veloster N Issues, Problems And Complaints" on this sites forums, there a few (2 or 3 people) who talk about cracking their cases. no one says they added an after market motor mount but if hitting pot holes to hard or rough streets are cracking parts then adding stiffer mounts on the under side of the engine might add to this.

The "cracking trans cases" and leak issues in that section of the forum are not from having the lower motor mount changed. The post "2020 veloster N PP stress cracks on transaxle case" shows casting marks, not actual cracks. And, the leak issues posted refer to a manufacturing defect causing the case not to seal 100%.

Changing the lower motor mount will certainly stiffen the ride. There are plenty of vids (from Boomba, etc.) showing the benefit of replacing the OEM mount. If there's evidence of these mounts causing a load failure on the trans case, none has been shown here.

In terms of drivability upgrades, my recommendations would be, in order of priority: RMM, transmission cable bracket bushings, JBR short shift adapter and shifter base bushings. Right out of the box, this car doesn't really need anything. Even the things I listed are more optional than required, whereas on every other car I've owned in the past those things were desperately needed.

Nice. I did the Boomba RMM already, and did a catch can from ADDW1. Probaly going to be doing the shifter and bushings at some point. Might also do an intake, but not sure its worth it just for the sound. Id like to just try a high flow filter but cant seem to find any that ship from US locations.

Intake seems to be mostly for sound and cosmetics. The main tuner at Sxth Element told that the factory intake and airbox flows enough for something like low 300's whp.

I was looking at that also. I dont really have an experience with piggybacks tunes, so my questions would be can the stock car handle the extra hp? I plan on keeping this car for over 100k, and I dont wanna wear parts out way faster then normal.
