Hey everyone, I thought I would share this thought for anyone interested. My dealership partnered with a Kinetic Racing dealer and now sells their appearance and performance packages. They offer packages for the Forte, Optima and Soul. As of now they are mainly appearance packages with wheels and graphics but the Optima does have a Corsa Exhaust system as part of its package. The Rep did inform us that they are working on a Exhaust system for the Forte! I figured I would put a few pics of the Soul we have done. We are working on an Optima now and a Forte next. There is a pretty good size catalog with different options for each car. It is really nice to see Kia being this involved with racing.

It figures they get all of this after I get the car, ditto on the exhaust! I just did mine too. I need to stop by for a checkup, I'm over due but have been doing my own oil changes. My powertrain warranty at this point is shot at this point anyhow I'm sure. The tech is going to look at me crazy with all the mods already. Least I can keep the rest of the warranty functioning.

As said, that is awesome they are recognizing this market though :) It's a start!

So glad to see this coming up. This kind of stuff will grow people's interest in the idea of performance Kias.

All this is what gets us our 2.0t forte/forte5. Come on baby! Papa needs a bigger motor!

Edit: I have just decided I am doing this to my wife's Soul in pink carbon fiber vinyl. I already did her chrome grill insert and it came out great.

Innovazero, Yes, you need to come up so I can see your car! haha I would like to see the stage 1 tune in person. And aside from warranty, all the techs would not think youre crazy ha. Were all excited that Kia is finnaly coming around with performance to the public.

Hey, if Kinetic is working on an Exhaust, would they be interested in using my car for more work, as far as anyone knows I'm the most modded K3 in Ohio. I'd have no issues using their logo/decals. If not, do they have an estimated price?
