Following this, the presenter asks the owner about the power figures and tune of this custom Hyundai Eon. To this, he replies that currently, he has not taken the car to the dyno, so he won’t be able to provide the exact power figures. However, he mentions that there is an increase of around 15-20 percent in both power and torque. He added that a stock Hyundai Eon makes around 68 bhp and 102 Nm of torque.

Coming to the exhaust situation of this vehicle, the owner explains that, prior to this direct setup, he had a traditional custom-built exhaust. He mentioned that at the moment the car has no catalytic converter, muffler, or resonator. It only gets a custom header, and it directly shoots out the gases from the turbo which come out of the front. For this reason, he currently cannot fit a bonnet on this car.
