Flashing Stock ECU For More HP

I have a 2012 Kia Forte Koup SX, 2.4L 4l DOHC 16V, and I was hoping to be able to do an ECU flash on my own to be able to increase the HP by taking off the stock restriction on fuel consumption. I read on a forum that the ECU inside the Koup is a Haltech ECU. I've gotten the required software for that, and traced the engine down to being a Theta engine in that software. However upon looking at the ECU and searching for it, I can't find any evidence elsewhere that it is indeed a Haltech ECU. I don't want to hook up and start playing around unless the software and hardware are compatible. Anyone got any information on this?
