    I tested the Lap3 Uncle chip on my 2015 Kia forte5 SX.. I found it did nothing but muddy up the peddle response.. and limit boost to 14lbs at peak.. normal for my car was 18.3.. I didn't feel it changed anything on my car I used for a 1000 miles then I pulled it off and sent it back.. got a refund no questions asked.. but during that time.. I tested it on a 2015 optima SXL and it turned that car in to a missile.. I hope the VT respond better to that mod.. but its a No Go for the Forte.. I also have the INJEN CAI .. sounds the same as all the outer CAI just a bit less nosier than the 6th element CAI

    Did you do any logging before and after the uncle chip? Just wondering what AFR and boost look like...

    Logging is kind-of pointless as the ECU will be giving back false data.

    We highly don't recommend the Lap 3 chip it sends false information to the ECU makes the IAF's think there lower when there not it blew up one our stock VT's so with that being said you have been warned. We also dyno'd it on and off and the end result was minimal for a brief moment in the 3k to 4k range at top end it actually was less power than stock. I would highly suggest a ECU tune on a separate ECU

    Never a fan of "piggy back" tuning solutions. Just too much that can go wrong.

    My gas mileage around town is up 3 miles since putting the LAP3 on and the overall torque seems much better. Catch can one for PCV is installed. Debating location for a second catch can without RAI and which ECU tune to get...
