Nope. The Kizashi had very few performance aftermarket parts and now that the car is orphaned and factory parts are so hard to come by, it's best not to risk its reliability and component longevity with tuning or performance mods, IMO. I'd leave powertrain stock for this reason and focus on handling upgrades from things like better tires, bushings, and end links. I personally see the Kizashi as a car to enjoy as itself and not put too much money into because there isn't much to do with it. If you're itching on tuning and mods, it's really just best to get a different car with far more aftermarket support.

Building on what Kuro said, if your Kizashi is a manual, maybe consider replacing the factory manual transmission fluid with a compatible fluid from Red Line. Turns out the stock fluid was only adequate for the stick shift’s performance.

If it’s a CVT model, the transmission fluid probably needs changing anyway. That way you’ll be able to enjoy your car for longer :lol:.

I totally agree not to put extra pressure on CVT. Still, if you really want to get better acceleration, especially in the low gear you can use aftermarket potent boosters for Kizashi.
I am using a good quality Chinese potent booster for 6 years so far no problem.

Nice rims! I am not a fan of black wheels, but it fits perfectly on a red car.
