I contacted the kia k5 optima store they do list a blow off valve for a 1.6 but it is a sound plate that fits 2016-2020 Optima with the 1.6t however it will not fit the 2021 K5

The 1.6L Smartstream engine is a fresh-sheet design.

There’s little or no carry over parts.

For example, the MAP sensor and the boost sensor are new parts with better connectors.

This means no existing RaceChip or other boost tuners for previous Kia’s and Hyundai’s will work.

RaceChip is looking for a Smartstream 1.6L now to use as a test vehicle.

If you’re in the Florida pan handle area, email them - they want your engine.
