Thanks. I'll send an email but I dont see anything on the site for a 2021 yet. Or even intakes or exhausts or anything
I spoke with David @ k5optimastore about a month ago. They don't currently have anything available besides basic stuff you can get from kia. I did inquire about intake and exhaust. He didn't have any suggestions on exhaust but said one of his customers installed the injen cold air intake for the 17 forte 1.6t with some modifications. I've thought about it, but have reservations.

Honestly, it looks fairly straight forward as far as fitment. May need a longer breather hose. My main concern is the sensor near the airbox. I'm unsure as of now if it is a map sensor or a mass air flow sensor. If its map, I believe you could just drill a hole in the intake and mount it somehow. But if its mass air, I'm not sure how you could retrofit it. The more I think about it, the more I want to wait for someone to release one that at least mostly bolts on.
