The start.. A steel blue Forte5 Wagon...
The first modd 35% legal tint on the sides 15% on the back
Pulling the intake for something new
My free Injen Forte Turbo developed CAI in Metallic black that matches our mirrors perfectly .. asking nicely does work
The first part of the install.. at only 3inchs its not as big as the Sixth Element. Fitment and finish are top notch.. no issues with the master cylinder touching.
The forte set up has a shorter second pipe so the filter sits a little higher in the space behind the fog lamp.. it touches nothing and sits in its own dead space.. I went the extra mile and put a pre filter on later in the day.. its just a mesh bag that goes around the filter sold by Injen supposed to help with splashes of water.. I also sealed the under part of the car..with some tape..just as a better seal..i also have a Aem by pass valve that will be in place soon at the coupler just next to the battery..
The finish product.. and as a added bonus.. I had the adapted values reset.. initial results..people say the car sounds like a Whale breathing.. the thing is quiet at idle.. has good tone at part throttle.. full throttle is about the same tone wise.. noted all sounds are from inside the car with the windows shut ( still have fresh tint) ..and yes you can hear the blow off valve.. some other notes.... the car according to my Tork app is running about 20 degrees colder on the intake side at both extended idle and highway speeds.. on the same day and temp as the stock air box..im data logging for the next few days... and then I hope to test out a new CAI soon most likely ...The Sixth Element or the AEM... " As our car is new and not really the same as the Veloster. at least form a marketing stand point. its a great way for companies like Aem and Injen..And others to diversify there product line.. with little to no R&D.. on a already popular platform" ... Thank You Injen Technologies for the lovely product..
The Mishimoto high pressured radiator cap works like charm.. this simple part gives you a little head room by adding a little more pressure in the cooling system.. more pressure.. means your fluid will boil a little bit
It doesn't get more Kia original than this... a Kinetic Motorsports aluminium oil cap.. adds like 50HP rite.. but it is lighter than the factory cap by a few grams..just remember red means hot..don't touch
this is the 6th Element Engineering resonator delete pipe installed
Evilla motorsports trunk brace installed.. with the modified package tray in place
this is my Asus table running the tork pro app and my blue tooth obd2 reader
Kinetic Motorsport badge a little trunk bling for my dark car.. I have been holding on to this for awhile. I don't like to do a lot of show parts.. but this one seems to apply now that I have done a few more upgrades.. updates to follow
