Then they must have some pretty damn retarded engineers at KIA designing an intake system that takes into account the ECU. What a waste of time, money, and performance....We may have someone. Good thing is we will be able to use our ECU mounting system for this intake too so it will stay cool enough for sure and you can get rid of the airbox. Any intake where the box is there is just plain silly and a cop out against Forte owners. I have NEVER ever seen anything like that in the industry. IF someone started a MYTH that the ECU will over heat then you should have NEVER BOUGHT this car. Really, never heard of such a thing in 25 years in this business and I even brought it up to Product Planners and KIA. They laughed like school girls!
