It theoretically should, they should both be 1.6L Gamma GDI engines. maybe someone else can chime in and verify if there might be minor differences?

That depends on the engine in that Soul. The 2012 Soul was available with the 1.6L Gamma and the 2.0L Nu engine.

If the Soul had the 1.6L Gamma engine then that throttle body should fit. But if it had the 2.0L Nu engine, no, it won't fit.

Here is the cross reference on my throttlebody I recently bought.
Its for the 2013 Elantra and is marked K60 on the throttle plate and most certainly will fit all the cars listed.

the 1.6 gamma throttlebody will be the same across.

i believe the k60 throttlebody actually comes from the 1.8 . possibly some 2.0s?
