Here is the info if anyone is in

I’m Bryan V and I work for K&N filters including AEM. We are looking to fit check our intake system on a 2020 2020 KIA TELLURIDE, this will be free of any cost to you we will need the car for about 2-4 days and our end goal is to equip your car with our intake system!

Let me know if you are interested.

Thank you,

I have a question for K&N regarding using and fitting a Telluride for a after market Air Intake system.
Will they be re-flashing the ECM? If so will that Void the warranty on the Kia?
I just sold my 2017 Subaru WRX that I installed a COBB Cold Air Intake System that required the re-flash of my ECM.
That also Voided my warranty and cost me $14,000 for a new short block after the #3 bearing spun and they said it was
in part due to the ECM Re-flash. And we all know that a re-flash of the ECM for the Cold Air Intake could not have caused the issue.
So I guess I'm saying before you start changing items under the hood you may first want to check with Kia first.
I'm all about proactive investigative activities before installing these items.

Highly doubtful that there would be an ECU flash for the Telluride, but one would most certainly create potential warranty issues.

Don’t expect any significant gains with a naturally aspirated V6, an the ECU flash is something that generally benefits turbo and engines.
