I was curios to know the actual upgrades were done to the 2019 Kona-N vs. the 2019 Veloster. A quick search shows they all share the same engine! 1.6L Gamma turbo engine.
Veloster-N on the left, Kona Ultimate on the right.
First thing I found with research that the Veloster-N has upgraded-
*Engine Cam upgraded.
*Turbo Resonater is already deleted.
*Stiffer suspension and sway bars.
*Lower engine mount has stiffer bushing.
*Tuned exhaust for sure.
Anything else? Maybe custom ECU for a bit more performance? I'm asking just to find out how close the Kona is to unlocking its true potential without breaking the bank. I just want to get rid of the engine lag and give it a little more snap on starts.
