    Adding some power to the 2.0T

    Guest-only advertisement. Register or Log In now!
    Everyone,

    My 2.0T is the first car I've owned with a turbocharger. I've been doing some research and am looking into adding a LAP3 chip and the recommended aftermarket plugs... with that being said, what other equipment would I need to add? Would BoV's be necessary for only adding the chip? Are oil catchcans a requirement? Anything else?

    Any help or insight is greatly appreciated, thank you!

    The plugs are a good idea with the LAP3. I'm confused if you're asking if there is anything else you need to support the LAP3 or you just want things to add? More performance parts equals faster car. I like the sound of BOV's so I think that'd be a good addition.

    GDi motors are notorious for producing high levels of carbon so I would recommend a catch can. Use so injector/fuel system cleaner every couple thousand miles to keep the carbon deposits down. Anything else would be on you, it's already a great car! Enjoy your mods

    Thanks for the input! Sorry for the confusion, I just wanted to know what all was necessary for adding the chip to get more power. I don't want to 'half-ass' anything regarding this car and I'd rather ask questions than make a costly mistake.

    Appreciate the help!

    Adding a chip and spark plugs will be the only thing that is really needed. Adding items like exhaust and intake will do very little. BOV is not necessary.

    Aftermarket plugs are a must.
    Anything else not.

    Coincidentally, we published a video today about other mods than can be combined with a chip:


    (sorry for the non-Kia Stinger-content, but it fits to the question)

    We also just launched our product for the 2.0T (Aftermarket plugs are a must for our product, too).

    Do you have any before and after torque and power graphs, as well as 0-100kmph timings with the 2.0T? Please tell us what the Racechip setting was with your graphs and timings.
    Thanks.
