    I was wondering if we could start a Kia thread for all of the owners out there. I hope there is more than myself.

    I just bought my Kia and so far it is doing very well. I did have a Dodge Ram 1500 4x4, crew cab,w/hemi . I put a AEM cold air intake on and it gave it more power on low end. I can say one thing for the hemi. It had POWER and plus. I am retired and disabled and couldn't keep the gas in the thing. So, with the Kia it is a 08 Sportage EX, 4wd and V-6 and has 23000 miles on it. I am just leary about it being never have owned one before. So we will see. Thanks

    I sometimes miss the power i had with the hemi. It's alot different having a v-6 then a V-8. When i want to pass somebody now i better have alot of space. LOL

    it isn't really worth chipping a NASP petrol,

    what i would suggest is a sports CAT manifold, induction kit,
    if your willing to pay serious amounts of money then look at getting upgraded cams and valves
    but the manifold and induction kit would be a start

    I've just made a new Kia forum. Looks like Kia's are getting popular then.

    Well, I'm thinking about a serious audio upgrade/carpc. Also lowering, wheels and seats, tints, a few subtle bodywork mods (spoiler, front skirt)

    Will see how it goes :)

    Sounds good! Get yourself a project thread going (in the Gallery section) and keep us all updated!

    (10 posts are required before you can post pics though... So get posting!)
