I have cleaned the engine bay, so it looks better now. But I had to cut part of the engine cover for intercooler piping to fit.

Nice work. I'm sure you'll inspire lots of other Kia owners.

Have you got any power figures from the mods yet? I bet it's feeling nicer to drive already.

I do appreciate your responses, guys :D I know it is not very common to upgrade that kind of cars, but it is kind of interesting experience to newbie like me.

ECU mapping with these mods added around 28bhp to 147bhp available. Sadly, turbo lag is an issue.
