How to increase horsepower on my car?

I have a 2013 sonata gls. This car is great and I will admit is actually pretty quick. It is pretty quick to downshift and has good pick up. However, I want to increase the horsepower on it. I want to feel more power. I have never worked on a car before so installing anything could be a challenge. How do I increase

If you wanted to buy something to modify for power, you should have gotten something that's out of warranty that has far more potential. Modifying an economy car for power is a waste of money for the most part. The gains are marginal and you'll likely have to sacrifice low end power. If you can't even do your basic maintenance items like changing your oil and rotating your tires, you've got a lot to learn. My suggestion would be not to focus on power but on simple things like getting better performing brakes and tires the next time they wear out.
Kevin:
you need to decide how much you are willing to spend, how long you plan to keep car, and if you are willing to risk your warranty. Some simple modifications are something like a k&n filter to a cold air intake to get more air into the systems, something like a maps sensor to help the computer process the air, to a cat back exhaust designed to expel the extra air. go into the tuner market and the power and mods are pretty much limited to your budget. the filters are easy to install, everything else needs someone else to install.
Windowphobe:
Don't be unnecessarily stupid. You have plenty of power. What you don't have is the skill to use it to its maximum. Take the money you'd blow on engine mods and spend it on a racing school.

Besides, engine mods on a 4-year-old Hyundai will kill the last six years of the warranty.

you have a 10 year 100,000 mile powertrain warranty. Unless you want to kiss it goodbye, you do nothing. Next time buy the more powerful model if you want more power.

simple answer is: you don't !! that is not a vehicle made for anything more than being a nice car used to carry a few people and stuff
Barnes:
Trade it in for a more powerful car.

increase the clean airflow.
Which means you need a new source for your air intake to the engine.
