I know my 2013 optima has a recall for it..
He's talking about a different platform (the Optima) not the Stinger. There was a recall on the Optima and Sonata and a few other Kia and Hyundai models 2.0T and 2.4L
I dont think this is related to the Stinger though
Gotcha, thanks for clarifying! In egards to the chip for the 2.o Stinger, have any dyno runs been made showing gains for the 2.0 at 91 and 89 octane settings?
We do not have any dyno results for the lower octane gas yet! We'll keep everyone posted though
I too am waiting on dyno results for the different octane levels.
So I see on K5OS yall show:
- "Kia Stinger 2.0T: 89/22hp - 91/38hp - 93/52hp"
But no numbers on 3.3TT still?
I dont think we've gotten any dyno results yet for the 3.3T on American gas. Stay posted
I’m curious why there is no shared dyno info on using the dual stage tune with 2 lap3 units? Is this recommended or not recommended?
I read that you can use the same lap3 setup on an Optima as well as the stinger but I want to confirm I can use the same unit on my 2015 Optima sx and my 2018 stinger gt? Is there any issue swapping it back and forth between cars? It it ok to run the upgraded race spark plugs without the lap3 in either car?
We have dyno information on this dual chip set, I'll see if I can post it up later! Unfortunately this set up is a custom design, not sure if David is trying to get the info to be able to run it or not. But because it requires some modification we've chosen not to offer it at this time.
You can use the Lap3 chip you used on your Optima on your Stinger with no problems. What's great about the chip is it doesnt "pair" with the ECU of the car its installed on. You can share it with other fellow Stinger owners at group meet-ups so they can feel the difference. That's one of the ways we were first able to introduce the Lap3 chip to the community was the sharability!
Not sure about running upgraded spark plugs on stock, we've been informed that stock plugs are fine to run with the Lap3 chip but if we find any alternatives that run better with the chip we'll be sure to let the community know.
For those using the chip we have confirmed the upgraded plugs for the 3.3TT to be HKS M45iL, this should be the solution for customers using the chip with the 3.3TT.
Price is $149.95 shipped on (6) HKS M45iL plugs (FOUND HERE)
Those using the 2.0T need to upgrade to the HKS M45XL
HKS M45XL Spark Plugs
Are these required?
Yes, upgraded plugs are required for use on the 3.3TT and 2.0T
