KIA Optima turbo 420HP 50kg.m turbine upgrade car
Hi it's still very cold here in Korea. My previous post : "Magic of ECU tune" was very popular among KIA & Hyundai fans. Here today, I am going to show you turbine-up KIA Optima turbo, it has 420 HP and 50kg.m at the front wheel.
Amazingly, this car is faster than stock BMW E92 M3 and Benz C63 AMG at the rolling test ( 60km/h ~ 260km/h acceleration test). No wonder that modified car is faster than stock luxury sports sedan, and some people may say comparison tuned car to stock car is meaningless.
But I still think these KIA optima and Hyundai Sonata (they have same engine) has something very meaningful. The cost you have to pay for additional 200 hp power( totally 420 horse power) is just about 4500~ 5000 USD ( depend on the options), if you have KIA optima turbo and live in Korea.
Tuner says, "5000usd is not that expensive price if you consider the power increase. Think about the tuning cost of BMW turbo car ( BMW Z4 35i, BMW 335i) You should pay more than 10000 usd to get additional 100 horse power. Optima and Sonata has very nice layout under the hood and it has enough rooms for additional parts. So that we can reduce the total cost for turbine upgrade." I agreed what he said.
* Max power : 426.56 horse power
* Max torque : 50.14 kg.m
