Lambda vs Theta

Alright i said it the 3.8 litre vs the 4 banger turbo.....is it really worth the extra ten g's......If you take that extra ten g's and dump it into the 4 banger that car would absolutely destroy the six cylinder. The turbo kits already are avalible already through numerous companys from axp, to greddy, to hks...... so does the person really need the v6?? please hammer back some feedback people.....Also i am the owner of a beautiful four banger genny

I highly recommend the underrated and nearly unknown 6-valve per cylinder two-cylinder option. For whatever reason, Hyundai just doesn't publicize it. But the potential of that little motor is so far beyond even the now-outdated 2.0T architecture, it just blows the mind.

Four-banger turbos are old news, get on the two-cylinder bandwagon - in fact, Ryhys Millen's next car will feature this motor, HKS said it was the best motor they had ever tested.

+1000

It also employs VVVVVVTTTTTLLLLLLL. Basically, every form of timing and adjustment that can be made, is, and automatically! Plus, this new 2 Cyl option reduces weight and makes you get 65MPG City!!!

Technically, yes, but it uses it 17 times, hence the new name.

Yeah, if you're comparing apples to apples, 2.0T Track vs 3.8 Track it's only ~4k difference, or base vs base only ~3k difference.

yeah MSRP of the base 2.0T is $22,000 while the MSRP of the base 3.8 is $25,000 only a $3,000 difference.

also a 2.0T Track MSRP is $26,750 where the 3.8 Track is $30,500 a difference of 3750 so i have NO idea where you're getting a $10,000 difference

Maybe in Canada? Base is $24500, 3.8 Base is $30 700ish, $6200 difference plus tax and interest would be about 10K

HAY GAIS! Which one do you think is better, a Honda Civic SI, or a Ferrari? Is it really worth the extra $185,000? If you put $185,000 in the Civic, you would straight up beat the sh!t out of a Ferrari.

What are your thoughts?

Primary: 2010 Hyundai Genesis3.8 Track w/Nav in Tsukuba Red

Secondary: 2003 Nissan Sentra SE-R Spec V in Sunburst Yellow (Probably going to sell)
