About the Kia Stinger GT

The Kia Stinger GT 3.3GDi is a high-performance sports sedan that has attracted considerable attention for its combination of style, performance, and value. It is powered by a 3.3-liter twin-turbocharged V6 engine that produces 365 horsepower and 376 lb-ft of torque at the crankshaft. This engine is paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission, enabling the Stinger GT to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in about 4.7 seconds, making it one of the faster sedans in its class.

The Stinger GT features a sleek, fastback design with aggressive styling cues, including a long hood, short front overhang, and a wide stance. Inside, the cabin is well-appointed with high-quality materials, a sporty layout, and ample space for passengers. The car is equipped with a range of modern technology, including a touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, a premium sound system, and advanced driver assistance features like adaptive cruise control, lane-keeping assist, and forward collision warning.

In terms of driving dynamics, the Stinger GT offers sharp and responsive handling, thanks to a well-tuned suspension that balances comfort and performance. It features rear-wheel drive as standard, with an all-wheel-drive option available. High-performance Brembo brakes provide strong stopping power.

One of the most compelling aspects of the Stinger GT is its value. It offers performance and features comparable to more expensive European sports sedans at a significantly lower price. Additionally, Kia provides a generous 7-year powertrain warranty, making it an appealing long-term investment.

The Stinger GT competes with cars like the BMW 3 Series, Audi A5 Sportback, and Mercedes-Benz C-Class, offering similar performance at a more accessible price point. Overall, the Kia Stinger GT 3.3GDi stands out as a dynamic and attractive option for those seeking a sporty and luxurious driving experience without the premium price tag typically associated with high-performance sedans.

Custom Dyno Tuning Kia Stinger GT

Many Kia Stinger GT drivers report that gear changes should be faster and the responsiveness should feel more "race-like." This often leads drivers to apply full throttle naturally when they feel their Kia Stinger GT is not performing as expected. This issue arises because the Kia Stinger GT is tuned to operate in undesirable conditions with poor-quality fuel in different parts of the world, resulting in lower performance and higher fuel consumption.

Performance Tuning Brisbane, our sister company, offers custom dyno tuning, tailored ECU Remap of the engine, and TCU Remap of the transmission for the Kia Stinger GT.

Kia Stinger GT ECU Remap

Our most popular package, suitable for both street and casual track use, provides an additional 40-50 horsepower and a huge gain of 220Nm of torque at the wheels compared to the stock configuration. This tuning makes the Kia Stinger GT more responsive, provides a sportier, more economical drive, and, we believe, safer for overtaking.

Kia Stinger GT Performance Modifications

For optimal results, it is recommended to upgrade hardware components such as the cold air intake, intercooler, spark plugs, and exhaust system when tuning beyond this level with 98 RON (octane) pump gas. Models of the Kia Stinger GT from 2019 onwards typically require an upgraded high-pressure fuel pump to support the boost levels of a stage 2 tuning calibration without compromising the powertrain. Flex-fuel tuning is possible with the addition of flex-fuel sensors, fuel pump upgrades and advanced calibration techniques.

A Stage 1 tuning package is a popular enhancement choice among diesel car enthusiasts seeking to boost their vehicle’s performance without compromising reliability or drivability.

The typical Stage 1 Diesel tuning package for a diesel car involves adjustments to the engine’s software or ECU (Engine Control Unit) to optimize its performance. This leads to a notable increase in power and torque, enhanced throttle response, and an overall improved driving experience.

These modifications contribute to heightened engine intake and exhaust flow, resulting in improved breathing and enhanced power delivery.

It’s crucial to recognize that any alterations to your diesel vehicle’s engine could potentially impact its reliability, emissions, and warranty. Consequently, it is advisable to select a reputable tuning company with expertise in diesel vehicles, capable of offering a customized tuning package tailored to your specific requirements and objectives.

In summary, a Stage 1 tuning package for diesel cars can be an excellent means to elevate performance and driving enjoyment. However, it is essential to carefully weigh the potential risks and benefits before proceeding with any modifications to your vehicle.

Stage 2 Package Inclusions:

  • Custom Dyno Tune (ECU Remap) or ECU Flash

A Stage 2 Diesel tuning package typically involves more comprehensive modifications to the engine and other performance components compared to a Stage 1 upgrade. This can encompass additional enhancements to the intake and exhaust systems, as well as upgrades to the intercooler.

Opting for a Stage 2 tuning package brings a notable increase in power and torque output when compared to a Stage 1 package. 

It’s crucial to bear in mind that a Stage 2 tuning package can have a substantial impact on your vehicle’s emissions. Thus, selecting a reputable and experienced tuning company is essential to receive a custom-tailored package that aligns with your specific goals and requirements.

If you’re contemplating a Stage 2 tuning package, a thorough consultation with the tuning company is recommended to discuss potential risks and benefits, as well as any necessary modifications for optimal performance and reliability.
