    Hey, Has anyone else pre-ordered the uncle boost from Lap3USA? I bought it without realizing it was on pre-order three and half weeks ago (it doesn't actually list it as pre-order on the buy page..) and found out through an email with customer service. How long have you been waiting? Does...

    The first time I ever came across lap3 was when I met a good friend of mine. I met him through Facebook where I had no idea someone tuned with a KIA lived 15 minutes away. I had owned the car for a year and was not aware of the platform for optimas. After a good long conversation with him about...

    Hey guys, I know many of us have the Btrcc canned tune and loved it. Especically how it lowers the rpm during cold start. I don’t think Lap3 has that yet. Let’s discuss on both pros and cons. So the new owner can make the best decision. I’ll update this post as we get more information from...

    I received my tune and installed it right away on my 2013 SXL! The install process was a breeze because David Chung gave me a step by step walkthrough. We were messaging each other in real time and he took great care of me. Within 10-15 minutes I was all done. You need to upgrade your spark...

  8. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    I bought a lap3 tune back in November. It is completely different car. It responds to the throttle a lot better, it’s not as sluggish. If you’re on the fence on buying a tune for your car give the lap3 tune a look. I’m getting ready to step up to setting 2 in the next few weeks. Thanks for...

    I recently purchased an Uncle Chip from another member here on the forum, and have been waiting to break in the new warranty engine before installing. However, I was wondering, since I'll be creating more boost with the chip, should I go ahead and install an actual blow off valve? I'm currently...

    I see you have this listed on your website. Is this the same LAP3 Uncle chip as for the '13 Sonata 2.0T or does it have different programming? My girlfriend is looking to trade in her '13 2.0T Sonata which has the LAP3 Uncle chip...wondering if we could move it to the 1.6T Tucson she is...
