Looks sharp. Like to hear your thoughts on how it feels. Any noticeable change in performance? Is it overtly load or similar to stock? Did you get the dry filter?

I got the pro kit from eibach with their front and rear sway bars and lowering springs. (Sold for the Elantra GT). The springs lowered it about an inch in both the front and back. Driven it maybe 100-150 miles and it feels way better than the OEM ones. Really happy with them.

Here's a picture with it after lowering, the gap between the wheels and the wheel wells is pretty much gone. It doesn't look uneven or weird, looks like eibach did a good job making it swap and play. The only hard part of the install was that the front requires removing the steering column and control arms. Took about 5 hours to get everything done with help from a mechanic at a shop.
Do you have the part number for those lowering springs from eibach? I found that eibach doesn't list a spring for the 2020 elantra gt yet.

I'm a new owner of a 2020 Forte GT and stumbled on this 5$ BOV mod. I find it sketch that comments aren't allowed but found a similar video for the veloster and the poster didn't run into any problems. Any reason this would be a bad idea? @2:20

So, no one has any thoughts on this? Was hoping for a response before I do this but looks like I will try it out and let everyone know how it went.

I did just get a chair rubber shoe, I just wanted to make sure this is a safe mod and just wanted to get thoughts about it. I currently have it installed now

Added the go fast bits blow off valve (t9211), currently running in a 50/50 config. Sounds pretty sweet, wish the turbo didn't lag so much. Also added the mac bov solenoid. No cel or issues so far. Spaces are tight under the car, first time I've done such an installation too. Took about 2.5 hours total.
