These are some great resources. I wonder if K&N will eventually have an intake system for the GT, for some reason they have one for the 2020 2.0 liter engine but not the 1.6 turbo.

Has anyone installed the above referenced Injen intake on their 2020 Forte GT yet? A little hesitant to buy without hearing that it is a 100% fit. I understand it's the same engine, but want to ensure fitment is right in other places as well in the engine bay.

Dont do it if it's the one the has the air filter just sitting under the hood. Not a true cold air intake. I posted it above because most companies will give you both options. Fitment should be exactly the same/ around the same that fitment of that will fit ez.

Definitely missed the aFe listing above. Even if the intake piping had no problem since it's the same engine, don't you think the air box that holds the filter and brings the air in from the front of the vehicle would be slightly different on the Forte vs. Veloster?

The AFE would be my choice just not worth the price. Shouldn't be any difference. Should be the same part numbers from the dealership.

Went ahead and bit the bullet and purchased the aFe. Used a coupon code for 10% off so got it for $366 after tax. Will let you know how it goes!

Hey guys,

I just got this car a few weeks ago and used this thread to find an intake. I purchased and installed the aFe 56-10005R (open top) intake and it fits perfectly. I just wanted to let you all know. It also is "supposed to" seal to the hood when you close it to keep out the warm underhood air. You can hear the turbo spool under load and has a decently loud intake noise.

Thanks,

BM
