Best "Beginner Car" for Modifying/Tuning



  • You should consider the purpose for which the car is being tuned. If you have a family car, doing expensive engine tuning or adding a bright yellow flame may not be too wise – this is only acceptable in racing and torque cars. Some modifications such as ECU remapping are not reversible and you should therefore be sure that this is what you want.

    Before you start working on tuner cars, you should get all the relevant information. There are several sources of information that you can consider. You could get your information on from online forums and other online resources. You could get the information by working with an expert, not necessarily a mechanic, for sometime.
  • There's a recent comparison between the Sonic and the Accent on Hyundai-Forums. In the end, the reviewer icked the Accent as being the better car due to the fact that it is just a better value but the tunability factor clearly goes to the SOnic.

    You can do a lot more with a turbo if you're willing to use premium fuel all the time, but the Sonic is heavier, and it's hard to remove weight.

    I'd still guess the Sonic is more tuner-friendly.
