Hi eric,

The DRL's are tied into the BCM. you would have to reprogram it. Just like when you add foglamps.

Im about the take my first step to turbo Sparky. Over the next few months Im going to start building/buying a parts list. Here what I have so far, some was taken from this thread.

Turbo: GT1241 http://turbochargerspecs.blogspot.com/2011/02/garrett-gt12-gt1241-130-hp.html

Intercooler: Im thinking this one http://www.ebay.com/itm/2-5-Black-Aluminum-Front-Mount-Intercooler-27-x-7-x2-5-Universal-FMIC/281939551489?_trksid=p2045573.c100033.m2042&_trkparms=aid%3D111001%26algo%3DREC.SEED%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20131017132637%26meid%3D41be323fdbb04553aabaa6f862085622%26pid%3D100033%26rk%3D1%26rkt%3D7%26sd%3D281939551489

Fueling: If I need more fueling this would be a good option http://www.bellengineering.net/product_info.php?cPath=5_20_277&products_id=29

Piping: Ill get a kit off ebay

Tuning:Bad News Racing

Injectors: If needed injectors from a 2006 Hyundai Sonata 2.4L fit right in the Sparks

 

If you have anymore info, suggestions or ideas please post.

 

Thanks, Adam

I think you will have to de-engineer these to make them run well. My 2016 CVT wont even let me rev past 4000 when it isnt in gear. Ive even notices the simulated shifting is diminishing over time. Clearly its heavily programmed with a self protect feature at every turn. I am curious as to just how integrated the engine management is to everything else. I'd love to turbo it, though. Another 30-40 hp is all it needs to be fun.

Not really related to the original post, but since you mentionned you have a 2016 CVT, there's a TSB that has just been released for the powertrain of the 2016 Spark:
