Features of the Sxth Element SS Braided Fuel Line
Making sure your engine has enough fuel and consistent fuel delivery to safely make power is very important. Hyundai has issued a Technical Service Bulletin for the Low Pressure Fuel Feed Line for the Hyundai Veloster Turbo. This shares VERY similar parts to the Kia Forte SX Turbo. This fuel feed line happens to be one of those parts. The bulletin states the fuel line fails under load causing fuel starvation which makes the car hesitate and lose power.
We HIGHLY recommend replacing this line when modifying your car with performance enhancing parts. It is better to be safe than sorry.
Switching to a high flow fuel hose will slightly increase the audible noise of the high pressure fuel pump. We have observed this increase in noise with the radio off at idle, and with deceleration in gear. When you are driving, road noise and/or the radio will drown out the extra pump noise easily. The added noise will not hurt anything so not to worry!
Sxth Element line is 100% compatible with all unleaded gasolines and E85 fuels.
