Hello to my new fellow Kia friends. This was my brothers car but he recently passed away. He always wanted to turbo this thing the 1.4 just didn’t have enough go but after a bit of research the engine won’t handle boost but just an idea but what about a k24? Because I definitely think it’s a good swap because this 1.4l engine only makes 71 kW 125Nm not great but what do you expect. But I’ve been thinking I could buy a wrecked 2004 Honda Accord euro with the k24a3 it’s considerably big jump to 140kW 223Nm. just start working from there. I have a 2007 Honda Civic type r fn2 with the K20z4 and I love it. What are your thoughts on this idea.
