Welcome to the forums, There a lot of mods you can do, the first couple should be Catch Can on the pcv side of the engine. Cold Air Intakes is a preference, they all do the same thing, if you do a tune like a JB4 you have to change the spark plugs. There are Catback Exhaust systems, Mid pipes, it all depends on how much you want to spend & there's a FMIC, again depends on what you can afford..

I had the Injen Intakes on my car which worked great, I ended up selling them an getting the JonnyTig CAI & FMIC. Whatever you end up getting for mods, buy mods that you want..

Congratulations and welcome! Oil Catch Can is always the safest bet for your first mod. I’d say go for sway bars after that. Really tightens up the handling.

I just got my AWD Stinger GT 2020 last week>Great car and very fast.I find the best all around driving mode is smart--it is just perfect.The comfort mode lags in stop and GO.I am also getting 24 mpg in a mix of driving--including the fact I never went under 80 mph which is great.I traded a very rare type R Crosstour--on you tube as proof--just type in crosstour type r and you will see it.The rebates totaled 6k and with my trade in I got the Stinger for 19k--I own--no payments--thank the lord.I also want to do some light mods because I do not want to void the warranty--reliability is critical to me. I am assuming you can get a cold air intake and exhaust and it will not affect the warranty.Frankly I do not need any more power then it already has--a slight increase would be perfect but car is a bullet anyway.I got the AWD for safety and reliability and contrary to what folks say the extra 143 pounds actually does not take away from acceleration--in fact in most situations you should be able to beat the RWD ones because the computer and AWD are excellent at putting power down.Took a neighbor that just had bought a Nismo 370z for 50k and he put his head in his hands because he said the Nismo definetley does not have the punch the KIA has.Great car and plan on posting pics and maybe a review on my you tube channel.Car can shame many fast cars unless they have some mods.I also share a turbocharged Polaris slingshot with a wealthy friend if I need something insanely fast if someone happens to call me out.I also plan on entering the car in the silver state classic--anyone know if the car can stay at its 167 MPH for long distances--because I am almost sure you can not have the 2 turbos going full blast--heat issues--and one of the forms for the silver state classic warns stock turbo drivers of this--should not damage--but I know the bimmer twin turbos 8s go into limp mode and then slow down to the 120-130 mph range.thanks folks
