Hello, I recently purchased a 2016 Forte Koup Sx. I couldnt be happier with it. I work at a couple custom fab shops and plan on doing some small custom mods to my forte In ther near future. Im thrilled there is a place for us forte turbo guys, and look forward to being a active member in the group. Thanks!

I hope its not that dead lolol and yeah its super nice, makes things easy as long as you're creative. Next mod will be a custom intake, not sure on what brand filter to run, there's a bunch of good options out there.

i myself got a sxth CAI and 7" AEM cone dry filter and besides it being darth vadery i feel like a slight beginning power loss.
it catches up when i WOT but the gears are so short so its like as i'm spooling up the turbo i gotta shift and i lose RPM as i shift ughh.
i have manual so RPM drop is almost inevitable. i'm thinking about taking off the CAI attachment and trying out the SRI.
regarding the filter it was much better than what i had before which was a beat up spectre.

i'm sure if you look for mandrel bent piping 3.5in you could weld/fab up an intake tube no problem.
wish you could do a downpipe and make me one too lol.

Welcome to the forums!

It's always a pleasure to see members with experience fabbing new products to the group! Even as a vendor I wish we had more products for the turbo guys!
