If somebody has any info on this, it will be very appreciated.
Specially on the gearbox and ecu that’s being used.
I personally asked the guys through their Facebook page, but no answer was given.
Thanks

Engine swaps are not easy tasks. Mechanically it can be "easily" done, but when you hit controllers (computers and wiring)... without the right tools, knowledge, and funds - project becomes a huge pain.


I would rather say - get a car with better engine. It will retain resale value, at least.

Drives:
2016 KIA Forte5 SX 1.6 T-GDI, A/T ("cheap GTI" - surprises many drivers)
2014 FIAT 500e (my first EV - awesome toy!!)
2016 FIAT 500X Trekking Plus AWD with Roof and Beats (for my wife)

That's pretty damn cool. Kia forte 2010-2013 are rare body style & still sought after. I keep getting asked alot if I want to sell mine or where did I get my koup. I would buy a 2020 Kia Forte Koup SX V6 6MT with the same 2010-2013 body style. Add about a ft more to each side an independent rear suspension matching large front & rear brakes & definitely RWD.

Guess it's only my dream. I absolutely love my koup. I don't like the new body style. My next car if possible would be 2010-2013 Hyundai Genesis coupe V6.
