F/L Gencoupe Front Grill
If that's really Hyundai's new grill I sure hope gctuner got it copywrited first (they'll make a mint!)^That's the GCTuner grill..
They might open up the intake and exhaust a bit while adding D/I and I can bet it will make a extra 25-40 hp. The engine IMO needs more torque than horsepower so I could care less if it made 25hp with 25 lbtq.there's no way hyundai's gonna get significantly more power out of this V6. I doubt they're going to change the engine for 2012, maybe a facelift and MAYBE a little more power for the 4 cylinder model.
Tuscanito: Why are you so defensive? Every post you have includes the word moron in it. Is it because you have a short range of words in your vocabulary? Relax. Just because others views/opinions are not the same as yours, means you can try and belittle them or be a J.A towards them.
A few things that were brought up in this discussion...
1). The new 5.0 mustang. I honestly don't know why a few of you believe that the genesis should compete with the mustang gt. They are not even in the same league. It would take over 400 horsepower to even try and compete with it. The genesis needs to be able to compete with it's own kind....first...like the wrx, the sti, the evo, the cobalt...ect... The genesis is slower than each one of these stock and mod for mod, is still slower than each of these 4 cylinder cars.
"One must crawl before they walk and one must walk before they run"
Hyundai has a good thing going for them. They don't need to rush things and mess it up. What happens if a baby gets up, isn't that great at walking, yet tries to run? They fall. If hyundai rushes things, they could take 2 steps back.
2). Power: Don't expect 275 horsepower and certainly don't expect 350 horsepower. I could maybe see 250 horsepower and 330 horsepower at most. Why? At 250 horsepower, the genesis coupe would be close to competing with the wrx and the cobalt. Obviously they need a more aggressive gearing, so that would definitely help, if it were to get 250 horsepower. Now, for the 330 horsepower genesis coupe...here is why I think it would only get a bump to that much...it would be able to compete with the g37 and the 370z.
3). Hyundai...Power...super car. Those three words should never be used in the same sentence. EVER.
The M3 is THE car. The closer that Hyundai can come to the M3 in styling, feel, and performance the closer we will be to the perfect car. I think right now the GC performs on par w/ a 5 year old M3 w/o having quite the looks or status. But it's comparitively reliable and has better technology as well. Honestly if Hyundai classed up the trunk lid and the grill a bit it would be very comparable to the 3 series in looks inside and out. In performance the GC already stomps the standard 3 series that costs $13K more.nope, I want BMW E92 M3 performance for $30,000. What's wrong with that? :dunno:
Ban Tuscanito or at least buy the kid a dictionary to expand his vocab, possibly a razor as he obviously has some anger issues...I enjoyed this thread until page 4.
Its gone down the crapper someone wanna revive it??? lol
In all honesty, half the reason I want a V8 is for the sound Factory backed 400+hp is also a good reason. If they did come out with a V8 coupe it's one I could slap on I/H/E and call it a day. The V6 and 2.0T just don't have that capability.People want a V8 mainly for horsepower wars and drag strip credentials.
