Hi all. I own the red-headed cousin of the VT, a 2015 Kia Forte5 SX. Same drivetrain, slightly less provocative looks. I bought my Racing Red 6-speed manual Forte on Wednesday (started driving it Monday) and I'm in love already. I was lucky to find this site via the ForteTurbo.com site, and I wish that forum were as active as this one, but since it's not, I'll get answers here as well. :)

(It would be kinda nice if the two would sort of merge and vt.org could have a dedicated Forte Turbo section, since they're so closely related. Just a thought...)

Anyway, I have lots of experience with turbo cars, from old Turbo Mopars to Turbobricks (Volvo redblocks) to a Saab SPG and an '89 Starion (legit). Boost is in my blood, and after driving a BMW 330i for the last 8 months, I realized I needed to get boost back in my life. That's right, my name is Jason, and I'm a boostaholic...
