If that white radiator in the front bumper is an intercooler I like the original black mesh grill in front for eyecandy better. Best to not let others know you have a turbo until its too late. :)

We have a black coating option for all of our FMICs if stealth is the way you want to go :)

I am interested in the Engine hood, I have a dark cherry sedan, I am also looking at the tail wing, I have 17 inch Drift black rims with red strip that is real close to the color of the car, when it is clean I will take pictures of it, what is the price of the hood and tail wing, in the truck lid black also

Maybe I'm blind (did just have LASIK), but I'm not seeing anything on the site for the Forte Koup...

That is the point of the thread . They just picked up the project car . They are not starting out with a factory turbo car that needs upgrades . Any turbo kits or other parts offered for the Forte will have to be fabbed from scratch , it will take development time . It is very encouraging to see interest from established experienced performance shops for Hyundai/Kia vehicles .

I'm sure the modded vehicle in the first post is not real , merely photochopped to stimulate interest .

Results: 146WHP / 140Ft Lbs.





We should have the video up shortly!

Next up, we test our cat back exhaust prototype w/ DYNO results.

Stay Tuned...

Excellent... Now I know I should have gone Manual!

I cannot wait to see what happens with the mods on the MT as it should respond better to intake and exhaust much better that the AT. It's nice to see I made up some ponies to keep the Kali-auto in the game.

I am betting my exhaust made the biggest difference. Since this is a non Kali car then it should gain slightly more.

Can wait on the exhaust work...Keep the runs coming!
