Question about 2007 Hyundai Accent GS Hatchback
I have a 2007 3door Hyundai accent and am looking to beter it's performance.
it has a 1.6 cvvt engine. I searched the internet for a header for the car, or options to change the camber settings to open the wheels up (autocross) or just about any upgrades I cant get for this car but I seem to be running against closed doors.
do you know if a header (4/1 or 4/2/1) for this car even exists?
any comments would be VERY helpful.
thank you so much
I might have a solution. I have the same problem. I just got an 09 accent and I think it is going to be a great project car to performance up but have problems finding parts because it is so new. I found a company that can help us with our problem. They are called KFX Performance, it is a specialty company for Korean aftermarket car parts. The only problem the representative told me, which you can get his info. on the website, is that they are having trouble bringing out the parts because I believe he said of either patent or demand problems. He did state that soon they are going to put the parts on sale. When I talked to him on the phone I stated that they would have plenty of people buying their parts because of the growing accent community, So do me a favor and help me spread the word so we can get some good parts going for this car, I am with you on the performance thing. The representative stated that in the future they are going to bring out the headers and possible turbo kit, I know nice. They offer headers now for a 1.6L engine but it is for the 06 Kia Rio. He told me to go to a Kia dealer and find out if the 06 Rio and the 09 accent share the same engine set up, if they do then I can be gold for a custom header job or I can just wait until they come out for the accent. He did state that just with their headers that they offer now you can get 9hp and if you get a high flow cat you can get another 9hp as well, very nice and with a AEM short ram intake that is a great start. Let me know what you think.

The main thing to check is to verify the operation of the VCT solenoid. You're looking for a sticking or stuck VCt solenoid valve caused by contamination. Refer to vehicle specific repair manual to perform component tests for the VCT unit. Notes: Dealer techs have advanced tools and the ability to follow detailed troubleshooting steps, including the ability to test components using a scan tool.
