    I'm on it. This week for sure. You may have to walk me through attaching the clip here.
  2. OEM Service Manual

    3G 2011 - 2016 Sportage
    I downloaded a copy for my 2013 LX AWD but I may be missing something. Isn't there supposed to be a table of contents?
  3. 2013 LX AWD dual exhaust upgrade/conversion

    3G 2011 - 2016 Sportage
    Hey Nick! Sorry for the late reply. Yes, my tips are 3" dual wall stainless and measure about 6.25" in width. It's all my fabricator had at time of install. Since then I found a 3.5" Vibrant tip that measures 7.25" that I may switch to. I'm not sold on the angle cut and I know Vibrant makes a...
  4. New amp on UVO/SAT stereo

    3G 2011 - 2016 Sportage
    I have a 2013 LX AWD with UVO and wanted to upgrade the stereo as well. What I did was get a 5 channel Rockford amp that is designed to turn on with high level inputs. I tapped off all factory speaker leads and ran to the back. My speakers are Hertz units with a JL 8" sub in a factory KIA...
  5. 2013 LX AWD dual exhaust upgrade/conversion, Part 2

    3G 2011 - 2016 Sportage
    I've been so busy with work I haven't had a chance. I still have the Neotech swaybars in my garage that need to be installed as well. I'll try and get this posted ASAP, but I highly recommend this muffler for performance, no drone and very quiet.
  6. Advice on buying used Sportage 2013/2014/2015!

    3G 2011 - 2016 Sportage
    I bought a brand new Sportage LX 2.4L AWD in 2013. This car has been fantastic with absolutely no problems at all .

    I have the same wheels and PowerStop setup front and rear. Awesome. No problems at all.
  9. New rotor recommendations

    3G 2011 - 2016 Sportage
    I have the PowerStop rotors and pads all around. They're great.
  10. Neotech R F/R swaybars (2013 LX AWD)

    3G 2011 - 2016 Sportage
    When you did the KYB set-up did you change out the upper strut bearing, rear bump stop and boot? I was just going to do this once and wanted to get all the parts beforehand.
  11. Neotech R F/R swaybars (2013 LX AWD)

    3G 2011 - 2016 Sportage
    My bad on the tire size. I'm running the 235/55X18 Kuhmo on stock SX take-offs. Since they were brand new when I got the wheels I left them on until they wear out.
  12. Neotech R F/R swaybars (2013 LX AWD)

    3G 2011 - 2016 Sportage
    Luxon makes a nice product. You may have noticed that I bought the upper strut bar from Luxon and had it powder coated TRD orange/red like my calipers. I installed the H&R springs at 10K miles and left the stock shocks and struts on because they were pretty new. If I were you now I'd go with the...
  13. Neotech R F/R swaybars (2013 LX AWD)

    3G 2011 - 2016 Sportage
    Absolutely. When I get the time to do the installation I'll take a few photos and post.
  14. 2013 LX AWD dual exhaust upgrade/conversion, Part 2

    3G 2011 - 2016 Sportage
    This is interesting. I did notice when I first started the car after the Magnaflow was installed that it idled very quietly and I thought this is going to work out great because it's SO quiet. From the sound you can tell it's not stock but it's very acceptable. When you rev it the sound is...
  15. 2013 LX AWD dual exhaust upgrade/conversion, Part 2

    3G 2011 - 2016 Sportage
    I'm not sure I noticed any loos of torque to be honest. The exhaust is modified but as far as intake I only have the K&N in the stock air box. I'm open to any suggestions though. Mark
  16. Aftermarket Muffler

    3G 2011 - 2016 Sportage
    Yes, the link that dubber09 posted is my original link to the installation. I highly recommend this muffler! Mark

    I used the Magnaflow "Camaro style" muffler with some custom pipe and welding. After a careful inspection of the muffler area it was obvious that this model was the only one that would fit. It's not loud, but sounds aggressive when you accelerate and no interior drone at freeway speeds. Check...
  18. Neotech R F/R swaybars (2013 LX AWD)

    3G 2011 - 2016 Sportage
    Hey Nick, The guy's name is Simon from Tuscani Customs (tuscanicustoms.com). The bars look good with a nice powder coat like the Neuspeed bars I used to buy back in the day for my water-cooled VW's. Do you know anyone that has worked on the Sportage front sway bar? I forgot to take a look at...
  19. Neotech R F/R swaybars (2013 LX AWD)

    3G 2011 - 2016 Sportage
    I've got some Neotech R front/rear swaybars on order and wondered if anyone had any experience working on and/or removing the stock bars? The rear bar looks pretty straight forward but I have not seen how the front bar is mounted other than seeing the end links. How involved is removing the...
  20. 2013 LX AWD dual exhaust upgrade/conversion, Part 2

    3G 2011 - 2016 Sportage
    I'll try to post some sound clips this weekend. Meanwhile here are some additional pictures of my 2013 LX AWD (33,000 miles) after the exhaust installation. shown also is the LUXON strut bar and OEM hood shock lifts.
