anybody here put a turbo on the 2.4 yet

I have a 07 optima 2.4 I installed a t3 turbo 38 mm external wastegate intercooler ssqv blow off valve its running 7 psi I have not been able to find anyone here in fl that can tune it I have read that a lot of people have been able to turn a returnless fuel system into a return system allowing them to use a fuel pressure regulator my kit came with a high performance fuel pressure regulator has anyone done this on the kia returnless type fuel system

How are you using the system right now? Have you driven the car as it is now with 7psi?

My buddy has the 2.4 Optima but didn't have the same issue. There are a lot of tuning places in the FL area tailored to KDM tuning now with the Genesis and Optima/ Sonata becoming so popular. I'm surprised someone hasn't able to figure out the issue. Looking at how old this thread is, you probably already figured it out. If you're still looking for a shop, lmk and I will ask around and find out who can help you in your area. Here's the 2.4 turbo setup on a 2012 Optima.

Is the 2012 kia optima turbo kit a Bolton turbo kit? What kit did you use?
