When tuning your Pony X11 it is important that you get it right so follow our Pony X11 tuning overview and see which the best modifications are.
Available in standard form with power of upto 66bhp (depending on the year), so this goes to show the tuning potential of the Pony X11. From this you can increase the power from anywhere between 72.6bhp to 112.2bhp which seems almost too good to be true but is possible if you have deep pockets.
To go over the 100bhp per 1000cc limit you would need to be running a pretty serious forced induction setup. If you head for a maximum power figure you need to expect a lot of unreliability. See this link for more details on Engine Tuning
Hyundai mods should include an engine swap to provide a better base to work from. The ’66bhp Hatchbacks’ is a real gem in terms of power.

If you can shed a few hundred KG’s off your Pony X11 you will get a much better return on your tuning investment. The most frequent modification we see on the Pony X11 include washable replacement panel air filters and a fuel pressure boost valve. The modification that gives the best power gain on your car would be a fast road cam.

So don’t expect miracles from small engines, and engine swap is a much better proposition. Turn your attention next to the Pony X11s engine head.
