We have now confirmed fitment on the 2011 6AT! The car is sweet, silky smooth, drives like stock, but floor it and get the snap crackle and pop of a tuned turbo motor!!!
Check out this great article in Performance Auto & Sound Magazine, highlighting the install of one of our Kia Forte Cold Air Intakes.
“A must have for any tuner enthusiast – the air intake system. All engines regardless of size and manufacturer require three ingredients for combustion: air, fuel and spark. Thus, increasing the airflow into an engine via an intake system will result in greater performance (horsepower), better throttle response and that signature suction noise. … (more)”
In an effort to “go green”, many automotive manufacturers are turning to the use of turbochargers to meet fuel, pollution, and EPA restrictions set forth by today’s society. In the past, finding a balance between efficiency and performance meant lighter cars, smaller motors, and 120 HP… not nearly enough oomph to get a driving enthusiasts’ heart pumping!
Thankfully, those days are over. Mitsubishi, Subaru, BMW, and Ford are a handful of manufacturers releasing new vehicles that are not only exceeding fuel and emission requirements; Read More
Is my engine in sufficient condition to install a turbo kit? A good initial check is to perform a compression test to each cylinder’s combustion chamber to test the health of the motor. If your engine is within OEM spec, there isn’t a variance of more than a few % between cylinders, and excessive oil and fuel consumption is not an issue, chances are your engine is healthy enough to support a low boost turbo kit. If the motor fails a compression test, Read More
This simple, often overlooked electronic device is a true asset to any turbocharged vehicle. The turbo timer is designed to keep a turbo engine running for a pre-designated period of time in order to properly allow for engine and turbocharger cool down in an effort to prevent premature turbo destruction. A turbo timer can be installed on naturally aspirated cars that have been converted to turbo and also factory turbocharged vehicles. Many turbo timer manufacturers will offer a plug and play wiring harness option for easier install on factory force inducted vehicles. Allowing for adequate engine idle time will help to dissipate hot gases away from the turbo housings and will circulate engine oil and coolant (if your turbo is so equipped) through the cartridge to prevent “cooking the fluids” in the housing if the vehicle was shut off immediately. Most damage occurs to a turbo if it has been building boost just prior to the engine being shut down. TurboKits.com has turbo timers from Greddy, HKS, Blitz, and Stri, just to name a few! Please contact us to get one coming for your ride!

Water Methanol Injection is one of the best and least expensive ways to increase the power of your gas or diesel engine. Not only do you make more power in a gasoline engine, you are able to do so with more of a safety margin due to the lower air inlet temps and decreased chance of detonation that water/methanol allows.
