    6th Element Engineering Front Mount Intercooler Kit

    The kit is ready to pre-order on our website.

    Intro price is $839 shipped. We are optimizing every process in building this kit to get the price as affordable as we can.

    Front Mount Intercooler Kit (Kia Forte SX 2014+)

    What's left to do? We just have a little powdercoating to finish this week and some HKS blow off valves will be arriving soon if anyone wants those (for a higher price).
    Anyone wanting a stock style flange is going to have to wait a couple weeks.

    I also have to write the installation instructions and get pictures of the finished product on the car. This will take place next week when I am back in town from visiting the in-laws for Christmas (leaving tonight lol).

    For anyone that orders or is going to wait, kits will be shipping the week of Jan 4th with Turbomsart or HKS blow off valves.

    I have mentioned it in the past, but for those that don't know this kit picked up 13 whp and 6 wtq over our last trip to the dyno in less than favorable weather. Please see the FMIC development thread for the rest of the kit details.
    We have put in a lot of work and R&D into this and I'll guarantee it's the best kit on the market.

    Any questions, please ask!

    if it added that much my bank account would be crumbling in on itself right now lmao, I think that's the wheel horsepower with the kit on, I'm assuming it also has the CAI on correct? Or is this stick with only the FMIC

    I would laugh but you might be serious, yes the engine has 200 HP stock (at the crank) but then if you take off 12.5-18% for loss in the drive train you end up with 166-172 WHP for the A/T and 175ish+ WHP for the M/T (some are seeing higher). So in reality 6th has about a 25 WHP gain with just a FMIC and intake without a tune.

    I hear you. Shipping alone is killer (not your fault 6th - anything to Canada is crazy), but our dollar is absolute garbage! This is something I'd love to get eventually.

    Spring time maybe, either way I'm buying within the first 2 months of the year. Plan is to buy the fuel line, FMIC, Dual catch cans, install and purchase a tune! Or wait and see if 6th had
    more info / plans on his own tune.

    I imagined it wasnt all 200HP.... but Imy getting a CA I tomorrow and hopefully soon a tune and then in a few months get the FMIC would I beat my brothers gtI stage 1 Tune? ? He gets around 275 or 256 HP I think
