Hey guys I'm new to the kdm seen I just bought my 2015 forte 5 sx Saturday. I'm having a hard time finding parts for the car I was reading on other forms that Veloster parts will work on our cars I just want to be 100% sure before I place an order.
The parts I'm looking for are front mount intercoller, BOV, coil overs, and a front lip for now. Any help would be great thanks guys.

None of those will work from a VT. The only BOV we have right now is the turboxs sml.

The core support on the VT is close to the same but is but just different enough that the piping for the FMIC would have to be modified to fit and the IC from most kits is to tall. Coilovers are coming from BC Racing and I'm sure someone will have drop springs before long. Only front lip I have seen is a universal / DIY lip that looked as good as any ez lip or rhino lip could.

What we do have is 6th Element CAI or SRI, Tuned ECUs, Down pipes, turbo upgrade and suspension mods. Between the three supporting vendors that are here on this site we will never be out of things to mod.

Thanks for the reply. Where can I get a down pipe and who can I talk to about a tune? I'm coming from the Honda world I traded in my 07 si Saturday for the Kia so I'm not use to a lack of parts lol

We are going to have a video of our intake eventually, been slacking there.
You will get other replies soon, but I will tell you that you will definitely hear the turbo spool as well as the blow off valve going off very clearly as well.

Just an FYI, we are out of CAIs at the moment and our pipe supplier is taking their dear sweet time making replacement pipes for the ones they messed up a couple weeks ago. I hope to be able to ship kits by the end of this month.

As for carry over parts, all the parts you see on our site pretty much swap with Forte and Veloster. I am just now getting to the parts that will be different between the cars. Things like Front Mount intercooler, catch can integration, suspension pieces, etc.
I have read the downpipes are exchangeable, but the cat-backs I know are not.

Hope this helps!

takes a little bit of research to find what fits if you want to explore the possibilities of the veloster parts fitting the forte....


Non stop tuning makes a lighter crank pulley which will help response and you can confirm this fits for the fact that the pullies between the veloster and forte are the same...

i did a bit of a researched and trimmed an AEM cold air intake for a veloster to make it into a SRI for my forte and then after countless picture searching i found that it was good to take a chance on the 845 motorsports downpipe for the veloster to fit the forte... and i am happy i did, i love my down pipe. lol

I did a DIY front lip and Side-skirts. I plan on making a tutorial thread but it is really simple enough to figure out. PM me if you are interested in doing this.

Witch of your intakes do you recommend ?? And do you have a clue to when the IC will be available ??
According to the dyno runs we did with the intake, the Cold Air makes a little more power, however it comes at a greater price. The Short ram did very well versus stock, and just 1-2 hp shy of the CAI. The dyno sheets on on the website under the Technical Specs tab in the middle of the product page.

6th Element Intakes

As for FMIC, it's coming along but we are still a few months away from production. The prototype core and piping gets installed this weekend pending some hurdles and I will be running and evaluating the kit for a couple weeks while I design the rest of the little details like core mounting brackets, wire harness brackets and different blow off valve flanges. Lots of work to be done still.

I will be updating the intercooler thread here soon, but I also post pics on Instgram if you have that and want to follow us.
