Not worth voiding your 100K warranty for 30 horsepower.

If you wanted more power, you should have bought a Mustang GT or Camaro SS

If you actually owned one, you probably could, but the KIA has a 10-year, 100,000 mile powertrain warranty. Any unauthorized modifications could void the warranty, so when you blow up the engine from running too much boost, you'll have to pay for it out of your own pocket.
