The Hyundai Elantra is the humble, slightly more seasoned pop star that just got its big break later in its career. It’s been around for a while, making ends meet by playing smaller shows, and just got its well-deserved nationwide recognition and popularity. The Elantra is completely redesigned for 2011, bringing sharp exterior styling, an elegant interior and fantastic fuel economy together in a masterfully-crafted pop album. It’s getting the airtime. It’s booking the world tour, and for good reason. It rocks. Echoing the classic rock-and-roll saying, one may ask, “Does it go to 11?” The answer is yes. Yes it does. The 2011, 2012, and 2013 Hyundai Elantra can be cranked to 11 by installing the AEM 21-718C or 21-718P cold air intake system.

The 21-718C and 21-718P cold air intake systems are precision-engineered to deliver guaranteed horsepower. The backbone of these systems is the mandrel-bent aluminum intake tube. The tube replaces the convoluted factory tubing which helps to minimize restriction and increase airflow to the engine. Fitted to the inlet of the tube is an AEM 21-202DOSK Dryflow conical air filter, the signature iconic hook of the artist’s first chart-topping hit. The filter utilizes AEM’s Dryflow, lofted, non-woven synthetic filter media to provide excellent air flow and engine protection. It’s also washable and reusable so it never needs to be replaced, and can go for up to 100,000 miles between cleanings depending on driving conditions. The filter is also positioned down near the driver’s side wheel well to help protect incoming air from radiant heat under the hood and if you’re driving in inclement weather, the AEM 1-4000 Dryflow pre-filter is available separately to prevent splashes of water or mud from saturating your filter.

As any music buff will tell you, there are records that are just a collection of songs, and then there are albums- unified compositions of music that together create something bigger than each song could by itself. Such synergy is the case of the 21-718C and 21-718P air intake systems. Their design components come together to yield increased horsepower and torque, not just a stylish piece of metal under the hood. On the dyno, these intake systems produced an estimated additional 5 horsepower at 2605rpm and 3 pound-feet of torque at 5500rpm to the wheels.

The 21-718C and 21-718P are easy to install performance upgrades, and can be installed in about 90 minutes or less with basic hand tools. They’re also backed by AEM’s Lifetime Limited Warranty so owners have the assurance that their upgrade is covered and will stand up to the abuse of a demanding touring schedule.

In the world of pop music, if you don’t stand out from the crowd, your career is short-lived. You’re just a blip on the radar that’s here today and gone tomorrow. Help your Hyundai Elantra stand out from the crowd by installing the AEM 21-718C or 21-718P cold air intake system and make the kind of music that lasts for a lifetime.
