ya I was a little disappointed when I read about the Stinger power output. they should have been tuning for at least 400 hp from that engine but 365 is nothing to sneeze at....Maybe next year?

Kia seems to be tuning pretty conservative. Honda pulls upto 305 hp from their 2l turbo Type R and using only 10 psi of boost. We only get 240 from the same size engine using ~17 psi of boost......oh well. Admittedly the Type R is a special case. However, 240hp from a 2l turbo is quite typical across the industry.

I had more than that in my 1997(?) Eagle Talon.

I do wonder if aftermarket tunes will be available...

I would assume a good tune and new chip could get some huge gains out of this engine.
