    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.

    How does one throw a rod? More curioslg why is this not covered under warranty? Also I imagine you can still get one direct from Hyundai. I wonder how much from dealer factory from Korea. Just a stab in the dark but aren’t the new 1.6t revisions in the new Elantra sport and veloster turbo the same and should bolt right in? Heck if they can to show horn a Ferrari engine in a classic fiat super minimum sure they can do something about an engine swap for our cars. I’ve always wondered how much it would cost to swap a potent vr6 in there.
