  1. Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    I am not sure what they did but did something and said my Soul checked out ok. I think ECU upgrade. There was a large number of Souls being checked besides mine. Someone had the problem and they furnished him a vehicle as they order new parts and finish the work.

    I am working on and think I have found someone that can reflash the ECU to remove top speed limiter and raise redline slightly. It will also adjust fuel and timing curves for a little more go.. I will keep updated as I find out the details.
  3. Aftermarket modifications (Gen 2)
    Just wondering. Do any of these really work or are they just gimmicks to get your money. I've read about the gimmicky resistors for some of the imports but have yet to hear anything good. So I'm wondering about a reflash or a OBDll type chip, has anybody tried either. I'm looking for a little...

I took it to a dealer and they want 1700.00 dollars to replace the ECU and a purge valve. Does this sound remotely possible? I...

    Hi all. I am in the process of doing my homework before my new Soul purchase. Is there a Big Bore throttle body available for the soul that will retain the cruise control? I saw one for another model Kia that also has the Beta II motor. Not sure if it'll work on the soul also. Along with the...
  10. Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    Is there any way that someone (Soul 4U ?) could check if the ECU program in the Forte 2.0 could be applied to the 2.0 ECU in the Soul? There's a discussion in the Scarborough Kia vendor forum discussing the merits of a Hyper Grounds and other modifications to the Soul, but the stock specs on...
