    2019 Kia Soul SX Turbo Tech

    sucks for Canadians, but also means there's no reason for me to trade up.

    side note: just the other day, parked right next to another SX. no Tech/moonroof, but it did come in a really cool two colour red/white trim. i see a lot of Souls on the road in the Lower Mainland, though curiously this was the first SX. still haven't seen a Gen 3 of any variety.

    Ordered an intake for my 2020 today from SXTH,said it should fit,and if not,will refund full money and shipping.Let the fun begin!!

    What if anything has anyone done to gain a little more from their 1.6T?

    Inquiring minds need info!

    2019 Tomato Turbo "GT-Line"
    I "hate" my Dealer. Tempting me into changing, that they took inside a 2019 (same as mine) and put it next to a 2020.

    (Both are Turbos)

    But I'm not an impulsive buyer. They can wait a couple of years more after I paid mine.

    Ps. Not hate as bad hate. They have a excellent service and great maintenance team, they took care of my 2011 and now the 2019 one.

    K&A CAI. More noise, not sure about performance increase. Sounds cool for a while, now it's starting to get annoying.
    Only problem is that it's 1.6L, and not that much boost. It does not seem to have enough tweak-ability from what I see, and the max power can't be that much.
    My Mazdaspeed 3 has lots of potential, and the limit is just $ now. KIA's don't have the tuner market to build parts (thinking higher pressure boost would require new intake, and way more ECU changes).

    They should have used the much more capable 2.0. They've pretty much maxed out the 1.6 so going further is just dangerous.
    Also the ten year warranty keeps a lot of people from doing mods.

    There's quite a bit you can do to the 1.6, take a look at what the Veloster people have done.
    I have a piggyback ecu to put on it already, haven't gotten around to changing the plugs and putting the catch cans on yet though. Should put it somewhere near 240-250 ish hp.

    Really would like to hear your opinion/results once you do.

    It does seem to be a very limited support network,but with some that are willing,things can and do change.

    Definately not afraid to play/mod my toys.

    Yes! I would also love to hear about someone doing some mods. My Mazdaspeed was CAI/Cat backExhaust/More exhaust (turbo inlet)/Fuel Pump/Computer. That was maxed out before a clutch was needed and to me it was too much lost reliability after that. Even with that the improvements were incredible, and all those changes were doable for a mediocre handyman like me.
    I have been poking around in some Veloster forums, and there is more, but I've not come across simple mods like my Mazda (most seem to be custom one offs). The CAI intake was decent, but it's way more noise than I was expecting.
    Can the Soul take more boost before blowing up? Some cars can take more, others seem to be limited due to design (the intake header seems very weak).

    Soul !/2019/Black Turbo
    I have a black 2019 Turbo. I love the red stripe. I upgraded due to the stronger engine. I love it. I would love a Turbo section.
