  1. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    I've been searching the forums for anyone using the go fast bits diverter valve+ but can't seem to find anyone using it. I'm thinking of picking it up to try it out. I like the fact you can adjust the sound and amount of blow off. Has anyone used it and if so how were the results compared to...

    greetings I've my 2013 SX Optima and working on different mods that actually help increase HP/Torque as well as help the engine. I'm looking for BOV but the way Kia set up the Optima's I don't think it's a game changer to add it. Still, knowing that the forum is full of experts, I'd like to...

    I barely get any sound to come out after I installed it. I can hear it but it is barely noticeable. Def not what I have heard from videos on the internet. I had the K5 store install the flange for me so everything should have just bolted right on. I bought some 4mm hoses from the auto parts...

    Hey guys, I wanted your opinions on does it make sense to have both the SRI intake and the BOV together? I took off my Intake last summer because I was bored of the sound but since then I added the Boomba BOV which I really love and it sounds amazing, now my question is would it make sense to...

    Hey guys, if you have Synapse BOV from Nameless Performance, make sure your top screw are all in place. I was doing an oil change today, I noticed that one of the top screw is missing and another one is out all the way, I quickly screwed in the one but the other one is currently missing. The...

    Hello guys! I installed the HKS BOV version 4 today in my 2016 Optima. Had to do some moving around with the vacuum tubes and sensors but I got it installed mostly. Only thing is I can't tighten down the bottom left hex nut that came in the kit. There simply isn't enough room to get an allen...

    Hey does anyone know if 845 Motorsport's BOV upgrade kit works with their FMIC kit? I was assuming it would, but after looking at the pictures they provide, i was a little skeptical. It seems like the charge pipe would get in the way of one of the pipes from the FMIC kit. Any help would be...
