Doing a 1.6 turbo swap (same as your veloster but from a 2015 forte sx) into my 2013 kia rio right now. Might be a bit off topic but I seem to think you are the only person on the planet who would care (nobody modifies kia) and I agree very little aftermarket support. Got my motor and tans in with wiring harness, still have my front bumper off awaiting intercooler mounting.

It’s back on the ground for now. Gotta do the wiper motor on my Jetta.

I didn’t actually need the foam but I did it anyway.

Got one side done. Taking my time between milagro and hotties on the patio.

But the stupid car had inverted flares at the wheel cylinders. So I made 2 new flares.
