This is going to be a long thread as it describes my car from start to "finish"
Pics Of the car bone stock:
Started off with some Stance GR+ coilovers which helped a lot:
Next I added some SuperDrift Spacers:
All in all I am pleased.
Next I added a cp-e catless down pipe
After that I added the MXP catback exhaust, pretty cool time lapse of the install:
Next I installed the first production cp-e intake:
Did a quick photoshoot so I could update my mods. M&S Type D grill, M&S Fog surrounds, Chrome Wing Badge, 200Turbo badge, 275/35/19 Hankook Ventus V12 Evo tires (because i had a blow out and it cost the sane to buy these as it would have to buy one replacement oem tire, and i used them on my new wider tires)and a spoilerless trunk.
Some updated pics with the new wheels and cp-e vinyl on. Yes they were a sponsor:
Took half the top end off to prep for new mods:

After this the car was completely parted out and returned to stock to sell, that didn't pan out so V2 got started.
A rendering of how I planned it to look:
first I contacted one of my go to Vendors GenRacer to get a new FMIC, BOV and intake. As always Andrew got them shipped out right away and sold them to me for a great price.
Picture before GReddy BOV kit was installed:
I had previously made contact with TurboXS about some of their products and right after I had installed all of the GReddy parts I received my reply, I was selected by TurboXS for a sponsorship. So all the GReddy stuff will be coming off and I will be installing the full line of Turbo XS parts for the Genesis Coupe.
First to be installed was the TurboXS RS Turboback exhaust. I must say that the quality and fitment of these parts are second to none. As you can see all the pieces came in a nice highly polished finish and fitment was perfect.
Better pictures will follow but for now here are some iphone pictures:
O2 Housing and Downpipe
Midpipe and Catback
I was able get the FMIC kit, BOV kit and intake installed today:
After getting all that installed I figured pictures were in order:
Next it was time to prep the drive train for the upcoming bump in power:
Competition Clutch Stage 3+ clutch with segmented ceramic disc and lightweight flywheel. This isn't the normal Stage 4 clutch you see on all the vendor ads, but it is available.
Just a little update installed a pioneer app radio and backup camera.
