History
Bought it Brand new at Kia of Lagrange here in Georgia. I work at Kia Motors the manufacturing plant in West Point, Ga where we build the Kia Serento, Kia Optima, and the Hyundai Santa Fe. I plan on keeping my forte for awhile and then trading it in on the Hyundai Genesis Koup 2.0T as an upgrade. Happy to be apart of the Forte World here on the forums!
2012 Kia Forte Koup SX (Bright Silver (3D))

Modifications

Drivetrain
-BBP Cold Air Intake

-Custom 2.5'' cat back exhaust system w/2.5''x22'' OBX Racing resonator for an even deeper and more aggressive sound paired w/4.5'' N1 Racing muffler, was runing a high flow cat )test pipe) but was unhappy with the sound, far to raspy for me. I actually think I lost power because of the lack of back pressure. sounds amazing now. def recommend this set up for anyone looking for a very unique and aggressive sound and more low end power throught the entire Torque curve!
