Keep us posted on how much oil you find after 1K miles.

Good work! Wait, do N/A engines need a catch can?
It doesn't matter so much whether it's turbo or not but rather if it's port injected or direct injected. Port injected engines have gas passing over the intake valves, and the detergents in the gas keep them pretty much carbon free, while direct injection engines do not, since they direct gas directly into the cylinder. This causes carbon buildup on the backs of the intake valves that over time can cause all sorts of issues.

Ahh, thanks for the explanation. I didn't realize even the Kia N/A engines were direct injection.

I think some 2014-2018 EX models had the 2.0 GDI engine.

Some were, others aren’t. The 3rd gen NA is port injected which is one of the reasons I got my FE over a GT. Some of the older 1.8 and 2.0 NA engines had available GDI.

Goes to show it is beneficial! Imagine that oil coating your intake valves and burning on them...😱
