The tuner decided to make from the Korean five-door “killer” of Volkswagen Golf GTI.
The “charged” hatchback Hyundai i30 N is one of the most “fresh” in its segment, having already found its followers and having selected some of the buyers from its rivals in the face of the Volkswagen Golf GTI, Ford Focus ST and Honda Civic Type R. But, there will always be unsatisfied stock execution of the car, at the expense of such people and do their own business tuning studio.
The company RaceChip, based in the German city of Göppingen, is one of them. They decided to pay attention to the i30 N and “squeeze” out of its two-liter turbo four more power. Recall, the engine in the top version of Performance produces 271 hp. The tuners managed to increase the power up to 309 hp, which, perhaps, does not look impressive, but with torque the situation is better – traction could be increased from a stock of 353 Nm to 498 Nm.
After chip-tuning, RaceChip specialists did not calm down and continued to work. It resulted in the modernization of the exhaust system due to the HJS distribution pipe, with which the output was increased to 316 hp. and 524 Nm of torque.
In addition to power upgrades, the hot-hatch also received some other changes. For example, instead of stock wheels, a set of cast OZ Racing Leggera HLT, shod in the rubber Michelin Pilot Sport 4S. Still the car has received new springs, with which the ground clearance has decreased by 15 mm and the stabilizer set of lateral stability from Eibach. The finishing touch was the wrapping of the body in the film by Schwabenfolia.
A similar package of tuning RaceChip can offer for the model Hyundai Veloster N, sold in the US market.
