Default 2021 K5 1.6L JB4 Dyno Testing - 06-14-2021, 08:30 PM

Hey guys,

Was able to borrow a 2021 K5 1.6L for a little R&D. Overall, pretty nice car at the price point. Feels punchy, pretty nice interior, handles well for its size, etc.

Testing was done on 93 equivalent fuel, putting out a best of 168whp/195wtq factory, and 206wtq/254wtq using the JB4 BETA.

For those K5 1.6L customers running the JB4 BETA currently, we found there is an additional connection point we have to add to the harness to get power up. We'll be providing that free of charge to all 1.6L BETA customers once we get them produced. We've also setup a unique variant firmware for the K5 we'll be posting to the site soon which can be used on both 1.6L and 2.5L models under platform 20.

In addition to the JB4 testing we were able to test out our new K5 1.6L BOV adapter which worked nicely, and a new intake we're developing for it. More on that later.

The K5 GT-Line AWD looks like a sleeper since it looks like a regular GT-Line or highly options K5 LXS.

The GT needs AWD but I don't mind it, slicks would solve it's traction problems where it counts.

So do the beta testers have to ask for it or are you going to send it automatically?

Hello everyone, new member. Bought my wife a Forte GT at the beginning of the year and looking to possibly get myself a K5 soon as well. Curious if any new info on wiring harness is available yet.
