I just traded in my 19 Forte S (blue) for a 21 Stinger 2.0 RWD we’re sun/sound (also Blue). I haven’t been this excited about a car in forever. People love this car and I’m getting all kinds of looks.
I was in the market for the V6 but they are so scarce, plus I was pushing my budget. Might upgrade to one of those later. In the meantime, I LOVE this car.

Thanks. It’s a pretty substantial upgrade. I miss my lane keep assist on longer stretches but otherwise it’s a total upgrade. The car sounds amazing in every way

I had a 2010 forte a while back that was fun. Previous owner had gave it custom paint job and exhaust. It looked nice. Ended up getting totaled. Welcome and enjoy your stinger!

I am. I've had 3 other adult males in my car this week, all over 6 feet and they fit comfortably.

Throw 1,200-2,200 into it and you will get close/er to the V6 specs

How?! Where to start?
k8stingerstore or burgertuning are great vendors for parts and info
I own a 3.3 so this is partly speculation
To keep it low $ - JB4, plugs, intake, exhaust (mbrp is cheapest I believe), air scoop from the stinger shop on the forum --- less than 2k if you can install yourself and will definitely add a lot of power and should be safe for the car
BMS brake snip (not sure if its available for the 2.0) and running e85 fuel will help a lot more w/o costing that much and I would expect it to get you fairly close to V6 specs
For a lot more money - intercooler, WMI, lighter rims, carbon fiber parts/hood would probably get you to V6 specs but at this point you just should have bought the V6
Hope this helps

I really can’t thank you enough for taking the time to lay that out for me. I’m putting together a dream sheet. You’re awesome!
