As probably you know, few months ago we had the chance to have a good time with Kinetic Motorsports team and Mark Wilkins racing driver in a meet at Southwest Kia Mesquite dealer in Texas.

Do you want to read more about that Interview? please click here!. Something to point out is we know this 2.0 L Theta II GDi Turbo engine gives 274 hp from stock but thanks to Kinetic customization and work they are able to throw an effective 340 hp which is about the level the series want them to run.

They also mention that isn’t the limit of the Theta II because increasing the boost they were able to juice out 550 hp out of this engine but that just produce too much wheel spin so they decided against it.

Here’s a video of the Optima Turbo running around Road Atlanta Circuit. Enjoy it! 😉
