The Si is pretty hard to beat in its class within the Msrp price point. Not very many cars can compare overall sure wrx pumps more hp but the base is price comparison and it comes with cheaper interior and smaller wheels and way less mpg for all models. Never looked into the forte gt I did look into the Gli before I decided on my 20 si though.

I test drove a Forte GT (sedan) 6 speed and absolutely loved it. Then I started researching and came across piggyback chips, similar to flashes but less intrusive. The funny thing is the stock 1.6T only dynos around 155whp!!! I always heard Hyundai/Kias are overrated, but wow that's bad. Of course the chips cranked up the boost and resulted in spectacular gains for about $300-$500 depending on the chip kit purchased. That would have to be a necessity if I was to add a Forte to the stable.

You guessed it! Of course it was from the chip seller. :)
Thanks for the accurate numbers and reading material. Can't wait to read it.
