Hi everyone, I'm new here and have to say that I like this page a lot.

I have 3 questions:
1) exists any performance clutch? (bronze or 50/50 or organic)
2) exists any aftermarket struts? (kyb, koni or other)
3) exists any short ram intake?

this 3 mods are very important to me and I don't find them on any site or mag...

thanks

1) Not yet.... really no engine/performance mods out there that would get you anywhere near needing a performance clutch but RRM has a short throw shifter and someone else does too i forget who...
2) KFX Performance - Hyundai and Kia Performance and Styling Parts - Forte: KFX Performance they have 2 pairs and i think Korean Auto Imports has some and a couple other places do search the forum for coilovers
3) you can make your own KFX has 1 Turbo Kits has 1 and im sure there are more out there... i personally just bought a cone filter and replaces the stock air box with it and i love it

I dont think you really need an aftermarket clutch that is something i wouldnt get replaced unless needed or you are boosted so much that the clutch cant handle it which i doubt will ever happen. Go for the intake first then exhaust.

I had my springs on for about 6 months now, they still ride well but the oem ones were never designed for the weight to be so low. We all have to wait and see who is the first to get theirs replaced. I have been hunting for some aftermarket struts and shocks but no luck.

It is a CAI, it's ours. We have sold tons on the board with many happy Forte'rs. Let us know if you have any specific questions... Thanks
thanks for your answer and yes I have a few questions...
1) can I turn it into a short ram??
2) I live in a tropical country, and I'm afraid that with the wind in a rainy day or with a little water hole I lost my engine collecting water through the CAI.
