We haven't sold a set yet but it's one of the popular item to get in Korea.
It does make a difference on the feel of clutch and helps a lot controlling the clutch.
It's fully adjustable that you can set the rod the way you drive.
Thanks

It's a simple replacement of OEM clutch rod but adjustable.

So it would effect the grabbing point? I wouldn't mind mine being a little lower to the floor.

so i could adjust where the clutch sit normally? is so this would be pretty nice. i'd want it 1-2 inches lower then where it is right now.

Is this for the 2.0t or the 3.8? Or is it the same for both? I am interested in one for the 2.0t.

I bought one from SFR (Clutch rod adjuster kit) but when I tried to install it, I couldn't get the old rod out. Like the new part, the old rod has a collar just below the tip of the rod...and this collar snags something up inside the hole and can't be pulled out. The area is extremely difficult to view, but I can see what appears to be a sliding spring clip (or something) that's installed within the large nut, that snags the tip of the old rod. No instructions came with the new rod, and my Hyundai service mgr. tried looking up the clutch pedal assembly online, but it doesn't show an exploded parts view, just a complete assembly view....so he had no idea how to remove the old rod. I had to post a question back to the manufacturer on their website....and am currently awaiting a response. I'll post it here if/when they respond.

I should have clarified that the 'hole' where the clutch rod goes, is actually a nut that is part of the clutch master cylinder assembly, and that protrudes through the firewall and connects to the pedal assembly. The nut is partly covered by a rubber dust boot. Hopefully Jay at SFR will post some simple instructions here, or respond to my online query soon so I can pass it along to others. I've had several cars whose clutch rods were NOT captive and could be easily removed or adjusted via built-in threads. The way Hyundai engineered this for the Genesis Coupe is unusual, in my experience. However since it is a 'performance' vehicle I well appreciate the fact that the rod is engineered so it can't come out of its socket accidentally.

PITA..
Yes the Hyundai design defies logic..
You have to remove the plastic clip inside the master cyl. to release the old rod..CAREFULL when you get the clip off and the rod comes out fluid/piston comes out with it..may have to bleed clutch to be safe..just put it back the way it comes out and you should be fine..had me scared at first for sure..Great Mod! well worth the time and effort.. Price????????

Hello
I will see what I can do for instructions. We've installed about 15+ so far and our mechanic spent about 20min to do the install.
I shall post some instructions when I Can.
Thanks

im just at the point where sometimes the clutch is on the edge of not disengaging completely and while driving it makes the gears harder to shift so you really confirm that this can give me more clutch travel?
just to make sure .. if yes ill order this right away

How does one remove that plastic clip? Remember we're talking lying sideways with our head and shoulders jammed up under the dash, trying to hold a flashlight, trying to see something black inside of something black....it's certainly not obvious that there's a plastic clip in there. Does it slide out? does it require snap ring pliers? More details please - thanks!
