I understand that not everyone is willing to jump into wiring like that and I know why. Also Thats not a bad price definitely I'd go with him mostly if he does great work.Yes I wish I could do it on my own but i reckon it’s a bit out of my skill level. I can wire car stereo’s but an ECU hmmm maybe not.
I found another guy that specialises in ecu installs, custom engine harnesses and tuning with Haltech’s. His quote was $1500 install and $800 dyno which is a fair bit cheaper. Im going to go with that, I just have to drive a bit further to his shop.
What Chris said check the oring on the dip stick also I would recommend you running 5w40 or 10w40 since it's turbo now just to have something q little more thicker. Also I can't remember but what's your catch can set up?I haven’t really done anything else with the Elantra, I did notice some oil weeping out of the dipstick tube where it connects to the block. This got me thinking it’s got some blow by. I did a compression test and got 214-218psi across all cylinders. I believe 220psi is ideal, so it’s close.
Maybe the o-rings on the dipstick tube need replacing or I could run a 10w-40 oil instead of 5w-30.
or it just has some blow by.
Is oil leakage from the dipstick the norm for these engines under boost ?
