    Engine replacement question

    Hi I'm a Kia Forte koup T GDI SX owner from Canada and have been looking for help in my search for a replacement engine as mine threw a rod through the oil pan and having a hard time in my search I have asked in the forum and was advised to contact a tuner with my questions.i am having a hard time finding a Kia 1.6 T for the Forte as a straight exchange is there any other models were I can source this engine from or even a Hyundai 1.6 T I heard was comparable but I want to be sure I can bolt straight onto the auto tranny and suggestions in my opinion any info would be greatly appreciated thanks

    It's actually a Hyundai motor. On the bottom of my 2015 there is a little placard/badge that says Hyundai. So that may expand your search. You can source a motor from another turbo forte, veloster turbo, or maybe kia soul turbo. maybe others too.

    I THINK that there was an internals upgrade sometime in 2013 or 2014. So I would try and find something that is 2014+ if you can.

    You could also do a rebuild but that may be more work. - Kdm Tuners 1.6 Gamma G4fj Engine Build Kit - Pierce Motorsports

    It does seem like its a little tricky to find an engine though... hope that helps.
