It depends on what motor and such it has. It could be closley related to hyundai stuff like the spectra is. I dunno though.

That new tiny Hyundai is built on the same platform as the Rio I think. I would call the dealership and ask what the part number is for the engine and transmission and then call the Hyundai dealership and ask them the same thing but for the other car. That's how I found out the relationship between my Spectra and the Elantra. When I go searching for performance parts I usually just input the Elantra information. I get more of a selection then.

You could try hitting up www. seoulfulracing.com to see if they have anything. They are in Korea but have been good to me so far.

You know what? I've seen that URL on a Tiburon the other day. The Tib looked REALLY nice! NEWayz, We were driving passed it (prolly in a parking lot) when it caught my eye. I thought it was a catchy name to the site. I think I'll check it out!

Angry KFX Customer Service ANYONE?

SPec I envy you. At least your parts are on the way. The only thing I've heard was an "order update" that said nothing. No clue's whatsoever about my order, what a tease and that was over a month ago. I've been patiently waiting 3+ month's so far and Bill has yet to contact me. I already told him I wanted a full refund. I could have bought an after market CAI on ebay for a fraction of the cost and had it within a week. NEVER buy from KfxPerformance, EVER.

But with that ebay intake it needs to be modded to fit correctly..... Much more work for some people...

Back on topic

this is exactly why I have been hesitant on buying from KFX. On another site I asked for a used Front Strut tower to buy off of someone only because I rather get it slightly used then wait a month or two. On Sephias its bad enough since its not made anymore but you would think that the aftermarket on the newer kias would be better.

Guess there just isnt enough of us modding them?

Going to install it this weekend. Pictures will come then. I will probably do a "How to" on it.
