Max Power
« June 14, 2015, 08:19:29 »
Been looking around the web for info on when max torque and bhp kicks in. No point in reving the nuts off the engine beyond that point.

The reason this has become an issue is I'm feeling under powered.........should have bought more cubes  :undecided:  :(  :'(  :(

Any ideas on the revs when max happens?

It should be mentioned in your manual, with a little search of the Hyundai uk website it appears your 1.4ltr is 73.6kw/99Hp @ 6000rpm and Torque ( Nm/Lbs ft ) 134.4/99 @ 3500

Thanks for this.

I disregarred the Hy website as I thought it would only be quoting newer models to mine....lesson learned :)

Max bhp comes in pretty high up the rev range. Surprised at that but good to know. I guess wringing its neck is the order of the day  :lol:

Power @ 6k is good as it means that from 3.5k where the torque is, the engine will keep pulling. I would suggest that you should look at improving the breathing of the engine, both intake and exhaust. You will have to determine if you want to be be constrained by the warranty though.

Much like Craig has done on his 1.6 GDi (K and N filter and less restrictive muffler) :cool:
