2016 Forte5 SX-L. Purchased Oct 24th 2015 / traded in my 2011 Kia Forte5 2.4M/T


Silver.. Really wanted black so I could black the shit out of everything but then I realized silver on black would be badass as well.

Ran 2 tanks of reg fuel. Been running shell 91 ever since. I tried Esso 93 but got worse mileage.. It's hard to beat shell IMO!!!
At the dealership



First day home


After getting it tinted. illegal all the way! Nice and dark on the inside.






First purchase is 6EE intake and res delete.

Installed a boost gauge ( still waiting for the pod, hate / love relationship with eBay)





Then my 6EE vacuum block arrived.



changing the clear line to black line once I have the gauge pod..... If it ever shows up.

Bought this.. It's a Mac valve, waiting for it to arrive. Will use it to replace the BOV solenoid until I purchase 6EE's FMIC. I'm thinking after that I might attempt to use this in place of the waste gate Solenoid.. Not sure tho. Would have to do some research. Thoughts??

Today I smoked my tail lights




Plasti dipped the chrome around the fogs.



Vinyl wrapped my fuel door


Then used the rest of the wrap on this

This thread reminds me of the scene in "Wet, Hot American Summer" where they have a montage of the camp counselors heading in for a town run and getting drunk, having sex, robbing old ladies, shooting up heroin, getting stoned, then saying, "well that was a fun hour...!" It's like you did it all in an hour! :D Seriously, though, I love all the before and after pics, gives a sense of what can be done! I especially like the dipped fog lights, makes them pop out a bit more without the chrome bezel.

Setting up my cans, deciding on where to mount them.. Passenger side struck mount. ( have to relocate the horn) or wait and when I install my 6EE FMIC I'll have room to mount the cans on the lower beam under the intake. Won't fit there now.. Stock intercooler is in the way.



Once I decide on a location and put together a mounting bracket I'll dip or paint the bracket black to it doesn't stand out.

Yes, FMIC, dual catch cans, cold air intake & fuel line. Although I'll be doing the fuel line next week when I get the replacement connectors from 6EE

Man I'm excited to see how this goes, FMIC is something i'm interested in once I sort out some other mods this summer

Maybe during the summer we'll get all the GTA fam together at a meet!
