Contact some engine rebuilders / automotive machine shops for quotes. There are so many, shop around for the best price. Parts should be cam, rod, & crank bearings, piston rings, seals & gaskets. Your Hyundai parts dealer will advise you & or have a rebuild kit. Machine work shoud be block cooking & cleaning, a cylinder head valve job, crankshaft polishing, connecting rod machining, crank align boring, cylindar honing, & block deck resurfacing, etc. THEN have it professionally reassembled. And a good time to upgrade the camshaft.

You can save some money if you want to, or know how to take the engine out & disassemble clean & tag / ID the parts. Buy a detailed mechanics Elantra engine manual. Engine puller stands are a cheap rental & or if you have tools, mechanically inclined friends & a spot or garage to do it all in or at, because this will take awhile according to your budget. A new perf cam & kit, headers & or cat back exhaust, & cold air intake with K & N air filter would give your rebuilt engine more hp.

but that car never really had any "roar" in the first place. you may be doing a lot of work for not much reward.

It's your opinion. I modified a 1966 Mini that was only a tiny 850cc's that only had a single su carb, & barely 50 hp. The combustion chambers around the valves were opened up, & I added tri-y tube headers, & a straight through exhaust. It ran great although only 60+ hp. 50 mpg on a cross country trip from AZ. to NJ & back!!! So much fun crushing @ 70- 80 mph too.
