View Description
From stock to time attack weapon in a little over a month :) Six weeks ago we took delivery of a totally stock i30N and decided we wanted to pit it against some of the toughest competition on the market, at one of the most competitive motorsport events in Australia - World Time Attack Challenge! The entrants to this event aren't merely mildly modified weekend warriors. The field consists primarily of heavily modified AWD and RWD cars with upwards of 600hp... It seems even silly to think that a little Hyundai would have any chance of keeping up with any of them right? Think again :) With the help of N-Performance and GT Auto garage, we turned our stock i30N into a track weapon in a little over a month. Only throwing a handful of small modifications at the practical family hatch back, saw it knocking on the door of around 350hp & 500Nm, up around 80hp & 100Nm from the factory 2.0L 4cyl turbocharged engine. Unfortunately rushing things like this meant we were basically doing testing AT THE TRACK during the competition, not exactly ideal, but we did exceptionally well all things considered. A large part of our success was our very skilled driver, Jordan Cox - no stranger behind the wheel of incredibly fast FWDs, and certainly no stranger to Sydney Motorsport Park. With a few minor modifications we were able to drop nearly 100kg, and add increase power by around 30% on the already spritely vehicle. We were competing in a class where most of the competition had far more horsepower and far less weight. We were the only legitimately street legal, street registered car in the competition, and the only car that drove to and from the track every day.. Oh and we wiped the floor against every other hot-hatch, not to mention a few other sports cars that became casualties of the humble Hyundai, including some GTR's, Evo's, RX7s and WRXs. At any rate, this very basic package we put together just goes to show just how incredible Hyundai's platform is. The entire list of modifications can be rattled off in just a few lines: PWR intercooler & Radiator Racechip from Ramspeed GCG highflowed turbo MCA coilovers Blits FRP hood, CF splitter and CF skirt TCR wing XForce exhaust Koya wheels Circo brakepads and slotted rotors Solar Style tinted windows & Opticoat Yep, any average joe could replicate the majority of the performance parts from our build for around $6,000 AUD ($5,000 USD) and still comfortably drive to and from work every day (wing excluded). Huge thanks to GT Auto Garage, N.Performance and Hyundai Australia for all the help in making this project happen and being available to answer questions at all hours. Without their help this project would never have made it to time attack. So, what's next? Well, more power of course.. Coming to a track near you.. Hunting down all the hot hatches ;)

edited: Neither of the Volkswagen's have 600hp, Both are manual, not DSG as stated. The GTI has 386hp at the flywheel (all APR bolt-on modifications that are put on street cars, no trickery here), the R has 480hp at the flywheel and has a few more modifications but not that much. The R is also driven by an amateur driver and completed the most laps in the event of ANY car, all we did was put fuel in it. The GTI was on old tyres and has ZERO aero, no TCR rear wing or front splitter. Well done on the build though, definitely a cool car and Jordy did a great job steering it all weekend. Plenty of coverage on the livestream which shows just how much of a cult following this car is starting to get. Oh, you couldn't beat the time that the GTI did last year with less power and old tyres. :-P

Just to clear something up, None of the gti's were running "600 odd horsepower". The mk7 gti on the field was running approx 350 atw. And the other golf u were showing was a MK6 Golf R. Lucky to be making 330 atw. Running off the shelf tunes. I know both the volksmuller cars personally.

Are these performance mods going to be marketed by you guys. We need a go to company for performance parts, similar to APR for the VW crowd. I'm waiting for the fastback version to arrive. I was going to go the VW route (manual transmission), but since VW sales told me they wen't interested in my money (and I'm not going to buy an over priced DSG Golf that's unreliable to boot) so it's hello Hyundai.

There were a couple of these at Laguna Seca this past Sunday for the Intercontinental GT Challenge finale. Everyone I talked to were impressed by their performance on the track. Unfortunately one had to retire and we got to see the crew working on the front end that got smashed up. They also had the new Veloster N on display and while it was a nice car, I really wish we could get the i30N here in the States. I'd really like the proper 4 door hatch rather than the odd three door design of the Veloster.

Appreciate what you guys are trying to promote here, good effort, i am also a fan of Jordan Cox, great idea working with him for WTAC. However, your build costs are really way off in reality, For the average person the mods are going to be at least $10k aud worth, then you are forgetting labor costs or time, which again in reality are at least another $3-5k, depending on mates rates or no tax cash deals. So really its around $13-15k aud. maybe in Aus but here in NZ there is only a $4000 aud difference between a Type R and i30n, I appreciate what Hyundai have done with this thing, however the base performance ( with the same tyres of course) of a type R is noticeably higher. So if i was ever to buy something new, the Type R would clearly win my pick. Do what you have done, and it would obviously be faster again. Now when you compare it to the cost to performance difference of a Focus RS $73k nzd that is a different story all together. The Hyundai $55k nzd, is a better bang for buck in that case, i would certainly pick it instead and do what you guys have done.

Cute hyundai guerrilla marketing .Tries to claim underdog status but this is obviously a backdoor factory supported car running against a bunch of weekender guys with near zero sponsorship and resources. And pls do explain how a 350hp racecar could beat a similar weighted 600hp racecar. Magic beans ? Not possible = someone is lying and most likely street fx for this promo. imo.

The car in the U.S. would be the Velositor N. The 250hp N will be approx $28K (US). Then you have a Turbo Kit (and YES a Kit, not just the turbo), IC and Radiator with upgraded piping, Upgraded Clutch, Front Pipe / Down Pipe, Intake, (possibly) exhaust, (highly recommended) brakes, and ECU tuning and/or Dyno. Sure, this depiction of modification was successful in the event that took place - but sooner than later the engine components will need to be upgraded for longevity. That pertains to both the daily driver & track enthusiast. It is nice to see, but just not pratical and only would apply to 1% of the population purchasing this vehicle. For those that are waiting to get on the band wagon (in the U.S. market) with upgrading the Velositor N; enjoy the vehicle for the first 3 years and let development come out with products that are the most lucrative. The first ones to come out are never the best. There is always better down the road.

This is awesome. It's cool to see the transformation of this car from a bone stock I30N to a car that is capable of competing in time attack races with purpose built professional racecars. Just think of how far Hyundai has come since the early to mid 90s when they were using Mitsubishi engines, and now they're producing cars that are actually competitive straight off the showroom floor. Great work Hyundai! I'm blown away.

Looks like you are doing great with the i30N, no one really knows how capable the engine and transmission is on it yet, but there seems to be one achilles heel (both in standard an your modified car) and that is wet weather handling. Maybe down to the fact you cannot adjust the front camber??

''350hp i30N! We took 6 weeks to build a GTi & Type R KILLER!'' you can only say ''killer'' when you compare it to the GTI and CTR after they get the same treatment, which it will be ''killed'' by +400 hp cars! Just saying :)

One car you didn't mention is the Renault Megane. Would have been great to see you, or someone like you, do this to one 4 years ago to a Trophy R. A Trophy R is at least good for a 1:45.9 at SMSP and that's in my incapable hands. Jordan would certainly get it into the 1:30s with his skill and ability. This is only just the start of your i30N project. Scary (and impressive) to think how far you'll take it.
