AEM Hyundai Genesis 2.0t Cold Air Intake Install

This is Hyper Auto Club’s review of AEM’s Cold Air Intake for the 2010 Hyundai Genesis Coupe 2.0t.


We took our test car to Jotech Racing in Garland, Tx. It turned out to be a perfect day for a dyno. Temperatures were in the 60’s and it was sunny all day long.

Onto the install:

Disconnect the NEGATIVE battery terminal


Since we didn’t have access to a lift we removed the front bumper.

1. Removed the plastic clips in front of the radiator.
2. Removed the headlamps. There are 2 10mm bolts that attach the headlamps to the car.
a. unclip the headlamp connector
b. once the 2 bolts are off, push from the back and lift up on the bottom of the front of the lamp.






3. There is a screw that attaches the bumper to the fender. It’s near the corner of the bumper.


4. There are 4 more clips (2 on each side) that attach the fender liner to the bottom of the bumper.


5. Once all the attaching clips and bolts are off you can remove the bumper.
a. Grasp the corner of the bumper and pull straight out.
b. Using a flat head screw driver you can help pry the bumper over the tabs as you pull the bumper out.
1. If you have FOG lamps don’t forget to unplug them.






6. With a pair of pliers pull back the spring clamps holding the 2 vent hoses on and pull off the hoses.




7. With a 10mm socket loosen the clamp that holds the intake tube to the turbo.
8. Undo the clips that hold the top of the air filter box to the lower.
9. Remove the top of the air box and intake tube




10. Remove the 3 10mm bolts that hold the bottom of the air box in and remove.


11. Next we removed the ram air pick up – 4 plastic clips.


12. Removing the washer bottle is next.
13. Start by unplugging the washer pump and level sensor.




14. Remove the 3 10mm bolts holding the washer bottle to the car.
a. One is pretty easy to get to up front.
b. There is one behind the bottle between it and the fender liner. You will need at least 12” of extension to reach it.
c. The last one is up by the filler cap.
d. Keep these handy as they will be reused.






15. Get a clean catch pan to hold the washer fluid so you can pour it back into the AEM supplied bottle.
16. With the catch pan under the washer bottle, pull off the washer line and let it drain.


17. Remove the washer bottle and filler neck
a. Remove the blue lid and put it on the AEM washer bottle.


18. Remove the fluid level sensor and the pump from the OEM washer bottle.
19. Install them on the new AEM washer bottle
a. Level sensor goes on the bottom hole & the pump on the side.




20. Install the supplied rubber elbow to the turbo. Use the supplied clamps.
a. Do not tighten them all the way, you’ll need to be able to move stuff around.


21. Install the rubber insulator on the metal bracket next to the radiator


22. Install the intake pipe.
a. The part with the 2 nipples goes by the motor


23. Take the 2 hoses supplied by AEM and install them onto the vent hoses on the Valve cover and tube.
a. Big hose on the bigger nipple and smaller one on the smaller nipple
b. Take the spring clamps off the OEM vent hoses and reuse them.


24. Use the supplied hose clamps and attach the hoses to the nipples on the AEM intake pipe.




25. Take the flat washer and 10mm nut and use them to hold the bracket to the insulator.
a. You can snug them down but do not tighten them.


26. Check for your clearance and tighten the hose clamps on the elbow on the turbo.
27. Tighten the 10mm nut on the bracket.
a. Double check your clearance.
28. Take the last hose clamp and slip it over the filter.
29. Slip the filter on the end of the pipe and tighten the clamp.


30. Take the new washer bottle and set it into place.
a. Take two of the old washer bottle bolts and use them




31. Pull the harness that has the connectors for the washer pump and level sensor up and route it towards the new bottle.
32. Connect the connectors.


33. Pull the washer line back through the holder and put it on the outlet nipple on the pump.




34. You have now installed your AEM Cold Air Intake for your 2.0t Genesis coupe.
35. Go over all clamps and bolts one last time to make sure everything is tight and you have no clearance issues with the pipe.


36. Reconnect the negative battery terminal

37. Start the car.
38. If everything checks out, start putting the car back together.
a. Bumper & Headlamps (don’t forget to plug the lamps back in)
39. Take a funnel and pour your washer fluid into the new washer bottle.
40. Enjoy your new modification!!!




Dyno Showed 20hp gain throughout the mid-range.

“I’ma have to say I am impressed by the quality and the development that went into the AEM cold air intake for the Genesis Coupe. The way the windshield washer fluid reservoir is set up to allow the intake access to the bottom of my car is ingenious. The improvement of power after the installation makes it so much more fun to drive my car! I get a louder spooling sound when I'm around 3000rpms and when I let off the gas I get a nice "grunting" sound that makes the car sound a meaner. Just what I like! I've noticed on the recent cool nights we've had, that the acceleration has definitely improved. I am sure when I get the AEM intercooler, coupled with the intake, the horsepower and torque increase will be more than enough power for me needs. Just kidding, I am not done there! Thank you AEM for always building great products and bringing them to the Genesis Coupe community.”

very nice review! I just got done putting my AEM intake on. Pull the front bumper off!! I went with AEM's offical instructions which has you just pull the right front tire off and climb under the car and my install took forever.

in personal opinion, i like the AEM intake. I've done an install with both. I'm a big fan of the water bottle from AEM. Been able to drive Alex's car this past week, man it sounds SWEET!!!

Wondering the same thing... Maybe the colors are switched? Blue shows as run #5, with intake, but lower power across the board...

Nice write up though, thanks for the effort put into that.

Good write up! Mine is sitting in my trunk waiting to be installed. Way better writeup than the included instructions.

Got a list of the exact tools/sizes needed? I don't have much of my own and need to borrow some if I can't get in touch with a local forum member to help out.

unfortunately the "baseline" was with the CP-E Turbo back exhaust. We were not able to do a bone stock baseline run.

I'll be honest.....for all that work to install that intake, it's not worth my time. I top end dyno's my SRI at 8whp and 14tq. for the extra 10hp...I dunno if I'd notice the difference. THat's a hell of a lot of work for that intake lol. It looks like a great product though!

the install really was not that hard. Took the bumper off just made it a lot easier to install and see things. I yanked the bumper off when I did the V6 install too.

Tools..man I cannot believe I forgot to list that..

pliers (needle nose), 10mm socket/wrench, 5/16 socket, various extensions, pocket screw driver, wd40 & a flat head screw drive. I think that's about all.

If there are locals that don't want to mess with this, just let me know and I'll take care of it.
