I just spoke to Daniel at Ramspeed who was super helpful and keen to answer any questions I had about the Racechip. He seemed to agree that the RS was the best bang for buck and the way to go.

He also said if I order over the phone they'll do free postage because they usually get stung with a 3% surcharge for Paypal payments. It's only $15 but that's more money in my pocket to spend on the additional fuel I'll no doubt be using.
Even if you got the GTS it’s still $1200 cheaper than the Tunehouse mob you had thought about :wink: my personal choice would be the GTS because of the better processor used which is where the cost lays.

Thanks for the updates mate. :)

In the manual, does it suggest you will end up on mapping 6 eventually? Not really sure what the 1-6 is all about.

After the Chip, would you need to provide more air to the motor? Also, how has this extra power affected your grip on the front tyres, especially if you are turning off traction control?

Just jumped on the Racechip Aus and Overseas websites and the Veloster options are gone. I wonder  if they're revising the vehicle applications available and hopefully will include an SR/N-line specific option.

That's interesting.  Worth monitoring!   :goodjob:

On the Racechip website. Which you are best to go to this one: :link: Online Shop ? Buy your RaceChip tuning box now - RaceChip Australia

Then in the drop down menu's go to. Hyundai - Elantra (AD) (From 2015) - Sport 1.6T (204 hp / 150 kw)

That is the correct one for our engine.  :)

The veloster option seems to be available again but I'd agree the elantra option is the one to go for

Hey @JRi30  , been a while since your last update :)

Any news on when the chip is installed? I am pretty interested to see how it all goes for you.


So sorry for the late reply. There's been some issues with the courier ups in getting my Racechip on time. Finally tried it out. There is a huge difference. My opinion isn't scientific.

It took a few kms on the freeway for the tune to fully set in but the difference is considerable. Acceleration on sport mode is insane, that feeling when the car pulls you back during acceleration just keeps on building even pass 100 kms, I'll be getting fines if I'm not careful. the throttle feels more sensitive to with less hesitation. Normal mode feels like standard sport mode now. I have to drive the car on eco mode now if i want to drive it around town as it feels to sensitive now on sport and normal.

Which one did you buy? Is it the RS or the GTS version?
RS version.

Hi JRi30 see this link :link: Chiptuning & Gaspedaltuning für Ihren Hyundai I30 (PD) 1.4 T-GDI (103KW) | RaceChip
I think that we have the same engine and model i30 you bought the RS model but I would like to buy the GTS model i live in Denmark so I wil buy it from Germany, i have also been looking for a nev exhaust this one see link :link: FOX Duplex Sportauspuff Endschalldämpfer Hyundai i30 PDE re/li je 1x90mm Typ 25 | eBay
the only issue i have is that i don't like to cut in the bumber, I rather get a new rear bumber with 2 holes for this pipe, but i havent seen one yet? next link
also should fit my car but I can't find a picture where i can see it's been installed, it would els look bad ass with 2 dobbel pipes.

I recently found out about another piggyback tuning option through aFe Power

SCORCHER GT Power Module

I still think RaceChip looks to be the way to go but I will say that I'm a fan of the push button in-cabin adjustment function. While I don't expect I'd constantly be switching through power modes with the RaceChip I like the idea of being able to do it at the push of a button rather than via a phone app since I'm very much against touching my phone during a drive.

Hi JRi30 I just installed the RaceChip GTS today, but I can't get the new RaceChip+ app to work, I scan the barcode and press next then it says type in the code from your GTS Chip, but I don't see any code to type in? did you alsy bye the app and have you install it, otherwise it was very easy to installs the unit, and I have try it, and the preform is insane, and I have only try level 5 and this unit is up too level 7.I have write to RaceChip about my app problem I have a iPhone X, and there are only video with the old RacChip app and here I can see the get a number to type ind to activate the Bluetooth.
