I wouldn't even think about adding a turbo to a diesel engine. The Turbo diesl is quite a complex beast. What about considering an engine swap to a turbo diesel engine instead? It will be cheaper and quicker to do this.

The easy swap would be a 2.0-litre CRTD CDX Diesel as this is already available in the elantra model. As to prices you'd need to ask around. Breakers yards and salvage yards are often good bets for cheap engines or you might find a nice reconditioned one.

Elantra Elite 2017
Whos got a nice Elantra/Lantra?
Hi, Just joined the forum .I'm driving a new Fiery red 2017 Elantra Elite 2.0 lt . I've started performance modifications with a new stainless twin tip catback dual exhaust , which I know is manily for sound and looks. They state power gain of 5 BHP but that's questionable . My next step in the near future is a new set of extractor header pipes. Only place I've seen one though because my car is so new is Shark racing .They say their 2017 Sonata header will fitt the Elantra .

Just checking in to say hi, just registered and looking forward gaining and hopefully being able to provide help and ideas. Oh, I have an 03 Elantra GLS 2.0l, I'm spraying it tomorrow in the garage so it'll be closer to nice. Bought it a week ago for $500 after a drunk totalled my 96 Mercedes E320, and it runs great. I already put a new timing belt, water pump, cold air intake, changed all fluids, engine and trans mounts, and next is tires and wheels. I'm thinking about putting in coil overs bcuz I've read here the suspension, even with new McPherson struts sucks, what do you guys think? Sorry, I can just ramble on forever about cars, good day y'all.

Christ, I just joined today, said my hellos on the newbie thread then was going to reply to a post about somebody asking about a cold air intake then I looked at the date, 2010! Then I looked at the dates on the other threads and 2010,11 13 but nothing from 2018-19. Was there a zombie apocalypse I'm not aware of and have I been in a coma? Its ok, I used to build and restore race cars in Hawaii so I can soup up a Hyundai. Lemme know if you guys have any real interests in your vehicles
