The Elantra's transformation starts under the hood where an ARK custom turbo kit force feeds its engine. Excess boost is vented to the atmosphere via a Turbosmart blow-off valve and wastegate that pass through the hood.
The Santa Fe features 2.0 King coil-overs up front and 2.5 Kings out back. The tie-rods and control arms are custom units for off-road use and the suspension geometry has been tweaked to clear the oversized wheels.
The SUV's rear-wheel drive conversion includes a swap to a 6-speed Genesis R-Spec transmission with upgraded clutch and flywheel, a rear differential borrowed from the Equus and a totally custom rear sub-frame built by Rothfab.
