Hi Guys and Gals,

I did this mod today and absolutely love it! It puts the power down much more crisper than the factory bushings and there is no additional vibrations that I can tell. The install took about half hour and was not hard at all. It was the easiest bushing install I have ever done. Here is the link if someone else wants to try them too.

https://www.genracer.com/powerflex-lower-engine-torque-bushing-kit-for-2019-hyundai-veloster-n/

I went with the yellow "Street" bushings and I dyed them black to look like the factory ones. I lubed every place that touches the poly bushing and there are no squeaks or no additional rattles. This is a great mod that gives great benefits and is very inexpensive. It will definitely reduce 0-60 times and it makes the car shift much more confident. I would absolutely recommend these to just about everyone on here. The install is loosening 4 bolts putting the new bushings on and tightening them back up. The main 17mm bolt gets torqued to 80 to 90 ft lbs. The back two 14mm bolts going into the frame get torqued to 40 ft lbs and after removal the 14mm bolt going down the shaft gets torqued to 65 ft lbs. After you take it out; just take a picture first with your phone before you take the center bolt out so you can see how everything is supposed to go back. I also put a piece of tape over the square nut the center rod bolt goes into so I didn't loose it. Anyway, give them a try. You will be glad you did. And anyone that does try them, please give some feedback here, Thank you.

Best regards,

-Mike

After break in I finally got a chance to see how this mod really is. From a stop in N custom mode shifting at 6k rpm I can chirp 3rd gear. No way in h-ell you'd be able to do that with the factory ones.

Best regards,

I'm confused about what this actually is. Is this part of the rear motor mount that is being discussed in another thread?

Yes, thee are bushings that replace the stock ones in the stock bottom rear motor mount. And they do work. I went with the "street" ones. They seem to work fine and a heck of a lot better than the stock ones. With shipping I think I paid about 50 bucks. Well worth it.

So which would be better, replacing the bushing with this kit, or replacing the whole rear motor mount with the one Boomba is coming out with? Or is it just a question of cost?

I'd be interested in this as well. Is it possible to do both? Looks like the Boomba RMM doesn't use the same bushing? Maybe try out the different types (street, performance, race)? Beneficial to keep the OEM so you have the capability to swap out the 3 types?

Just some questions that came to mind.

The Boomba mount will be much better. I did my swap about two weeks before we even knew Boomba was going to make one. If I knew, I probably would have waited. Their mounts are top notch. Everything I used from them was... no joke. I really hope they make an intake manifold and throttle body spacer for this platform. It's only like a 3 hp gain but you gain about 33 ft lbs of torque. That combo really woke my old Fusion up. Usually only a tune can produce that type of torque. With this all said, the mounts I swapped did make a difference. I hope they make a non-VTA BOV. I'd probably buy one in black.

Best regards,

You know us well Mike! Our intake manifold is currently off the car and in our R&D department :smile:

LOL... If I lived closer I'd ask for a job! Out of all the aftermarket manufacturers you are my favorite. Like I said everything I used from you guys was top notch and looked beautiful! And every product I purchased was packaged perfectly. Never any problems when the product arrived. Also, will you make any of the spacers with no drilled ports on them? I want those too but I don't want to void my warranty and if I can get some with no drilled ports then the dealer won't really notice them. Know what I mean? lol... Anyway, keep up the great work!

Best regards,

It may be something we consider, but we like having the ports because it gives the end user a lot more options than just having the spacer!

I agree with the purpose of the ports and in general what the end user wants. I was wondering... Can the spacer be installed with the ports facing toward the ground? That way no one would see them. Just a thought. Thanks for all the work you all do.

Best regards,

I like that one too but it's too expensive. The cheapest I have seen it is $190.00. I'm hoping Boomba's is much less. They make good stuff so I am sure it will be at least as good quality as Sixth Element's. I guess we will see sometime this week cuz I'm definitely buying one if the price is right.

Best regards,

Most likely not since the manifold is not symmetrical.

We've got a lot in the oven right now ;)

Boomba is going to be a little more vibration then the yellow street bushings though. Based on the hardness of the bushings, is boomba sticking with just the one stiffness? I'm worried about the vibration.
