Kia has never been known for performance vehicles but that all changed when they released the twin turbo V6 Stinger GT in October 2017. Out of the box the twin turbo V6 is good for 272kW or 364hp and will run a high 12-second quarter mile from the four door RWD family saloon. HP-F (The Horsepower Factory) in Dandenong is now offering custom ECU remapping for the Kia Stinger. We took a look at two different modified GT examples and their dyno tuning results. http://www.hp-f.com.au/

First... you don't want one of these Its way too loud.

Second... the only benefit will be for all out power and... its way too loud

I have three test and tunes over the next two weeks, I am going to keep this on the car until we can get the car down the track with this dump exhaust on the car. Not sure if its going to be worth any trap speeds or dropping the ET, but it will sound cool

Current mods on this car are:

Tork Tune
Tork FMIC
Tork primary and secondary cat deletes
Tork intakes
HKS 45 spark plugs gapped to .028
Tork oval dump exhaust

With that being said... stay tuned for the methanol kit and rear LSD installs coming soon.

If all goes well, we will have a full map index of the ECU in the next few days (fingers crossed), so.... maybe we will see some additional movement on the Stage 1.5 tune. Who knows!!!

I want to thank everyone for tuning in and watching the channel, we do it for you guys.

All the parts seen on the car can be purchased at damnfastdd.com (adding items every week for all the cars) and if you have any questions please feel free to contact us at:

Phone: 253-887-8305
Email: sales@damnfastdd.com

If that video of the race against the VW upset people... this one is going to be an instant classic!!! The cars are impressive, but that AWD of the Stinger brings it out on top every time!!!


We are excited to see our customers putting our parts to good use, and if you have a Stinger, you can get these exact same parts at damnfastdd.com Make sure you share this with all your friends, because this video will have those with the Mustangs, Camaros and G8's... wondering what just happened Thanks, Tork Motorsports

Kia Stinger GT - LAP3 Pro-Tuner R&D Update!
The result is fantastic. 440ps/63.95kg-m (434whp/462ft-lbs), running 93 octane.
The vehicle is completely stock besides the K&N Intakes! Despite the extremely hot weather condition, we were able to bump up the power even further. We are still working a few more things, planning on making 440whp+ on a near stock Stinger before we release the Pro-Tuner in the U.S.

Stay tuned & Join LAP3 Performance page to meet our customers and follow their builds!

There are a few tuners with their hands in the car now both in the US and in S. Korea (Lap3) being one of the main out of Korea that is active on forums.

Tork
Lap3
JB4/ BMS
(there's another one on the east coast) don't recall

I think for the most part they are still playing it safe with the tunes to get them effective not just HIGH HP

Lastest Update on Tuning the Stinger GT 3.3T
LAP3 Pro-Tuner R&D Result
445ps/63.95kgm (439WHP & 462ft-lbs)

The result is truly amazing, and it is running HKS plugs, intakes, and downpipe only. We have already made much more power than any competitors' boost chips on the market, but we have been working on refining the powerband. Look how smooth the graph is(see graph 1 & 2), and it is now putting down extra 40whp @ 6000rpm compare to the result from a few days ago. We were able to pick up extra 5whp+ for the peak power as well. The Pro-Tuner is not a simple analog type boost chip. The Pro-Tuner can control more parameters than any of the boost chips on the market, which makes it the most advanced P&P tuning solution paired with ~20 years of our tuning experience and knowledge.

The performance output is just as good as a proper ECU mapping. The Pro-Tuner result has surpassed many of competitors' ECU tunes, which you can tell how limited they are at ECU Re-Mapping. We will be making more adjustments next week. We are putting more effort in to delivering the best P&P Tuning solution in the market, and we are very close to perfecting it. Those who want better reliability, tunability, and performance, you can get them in the LAP3 Pro-Tuner in the near future-.

Are Kia Stinger Sales Living Up To The Hype? Here Are The Numbers





As always, numbers don't lie.

Almost two years ago at the Detroit Auto Show we proclaimed that the then all-new Kia Stinger was the undisputed star of the show. It upstaged literally everything the Detroit automakers brought that year, which admittedly wasnít particularly exciting. But who would have ever thought that Kia was capable and willing to produce something like the Stinger and Stinger GT fastback sedans? Needless to say, there was a lot of hype surrounding the new car.


Now that we have several months of sales numbers, we figured it was a good time to check to see whether the Stinger has taken a bite, so to speak, out of the competition. Speaking of which, what is the competition? There are several choices, but we went big, meaning the premium luxury brands.



















Specifically, we compared Kia Stinger sales results to those of the following: BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe, Audi A4/S4 and A5/S5 Sportback, Jaguar XE, and the Mercedes-Benz C-Class. It should be noted that neither Audi nor Mercedes-Benz provided specific sales breakdowns for the aforementioned models. Instead, they were clumped together with the entire A5 and C-Class range, respectively.


For example, we donít have a precise sales breakdown for what we see as the Stingerís most direct C-Class variant rival, the AMG C43. So far this year, specifically through July (via carsalesbase.com), a total of 10,144 Kia Stingers have been sold in the US. To compare, BMW sold a total of 18,331 4 Series Gran Coupes in that same period. Audi sold 21,575 A4s and S4s, 15,973 A5s and S5s, while Jaguar sold 2,663 XEs, and Mercedes shifted 33,500 C-Class models.






















Unfortunately, because a direct Stinger vs say, Audi S5 Sportback sales comparison isnít available, itís hard to get a fully accurate picture of how Ė or if Ė the Kia has been the segment disruptor some tipped it to become.



However, based on the fact over 10,000 Stingers have been sold so far this year (its first full model year) and less than 3,000 Jaguar XEs have left dealership lots, is already a very good sign. It would also be unfair to compare the Kia Stinger to, for example, the Honda Accord, which has sold, on average, over 20,000 units a month so far this year.


The two sedans cater to different types of buyers. But considering the Stinger and Stinger GT are performance-focused, have an unusual fastback body style, and, above all, wear a Kia badge, the Korean carmaker has a lot to be proud of. It wasnít too long ago Kia was seen as purely a bargain brand for non-car lovers. Kiss those days goodbye.









9









We also reached out to James Bell, Kia America's Director of Corporate Communications, regarding Stinger sales and were told that "Expectations are high and we are doing a great job of collecting all-new customers for the Kia brand, especially off BMW, Audi, Lexus, and trade-ins. As you know, the sedan market is not nearly as hot as the CUV/SUV (market) but the Stinger is providing the 'vehicle of change' for the brand just as intended."


Last November, Kia told us it had received around 50,000 queries for the Stinger, and by February that figured increased to 100,000. Unfortunately, we don't have any way of knowing precisely how many of those queries resulted in sales. Nevertheless, the Kia Stinger is more than holding its own in the market and remains the go-to choice for those seeking a true sports sedan you can get for around $50,000 all-in.
