If you read the May issue of then you’ll probably the test drive we did of Hyundai’s new and rear-wheel-drive sports coupe, the Coupe. Test driver and editor Andy Hope that the 210-bhp, 2-liter version would be the hot ticket some mods, but in stock enjoyed the V-6 version more for its to hang the tail end out, to its 306-bhp and easily disabled control.

Question is, how receptive will the Genesis Coupe be to some monkey business designed to horsepower up into rear-tire-burning To answer that question, I to AMS Performance’s special projects Ivan Phipps (whose street-legal S14 was featured back in ’07), who recently picked up a Gray 2.0T Track in order to evaluate it and develop a of AMS go-fast goodies for it.

If you’re with AMS Performance, you’ve been in a five-year coma this shop has become one of the widely respected tuning and performance parts manufacturers in the Known best for its DSM and EVO tuning and its dominant EVO time … and machines, in recent years AMS has its product line to include an diverse group of machines the Subaru Impreza and R35 Nissan as well as some Euro like the BMW 335i and Porsche 996 and 997 Soon, the Hyundai Genesis will be added to that once the engineering team at AMS the final

touches on the prototyped parts in for this platform.

But before they could the prototyping process, Ivan and the AMS had to spend some time the OEM components in order to determine their special go-fast is needed most. As you may know, the turbo engine in the Genesis is a GEMA World Engine designed by Mitsubishi, Chrysler and for use in their respective vehicle

So the 2.0T Genesis Coupe’s engine design is very related to the EVO X’s engine, there are significant differences-including head and manifold designs. But the underlying DNA of the World Engine in the there’s good reason to the Gen Coupe’s 2-liter mill is of pumping out some serious with a little love the aftermarket.

Once Ivan took of his Korean turbo coupe, he and the AMS began their evaluation a dyno session to baseline it for boost level, air/fuel as well as fuel pressure, air temperature, knock sensor and spark plug condition. this information, as well as a visual inspection and measuring the RD team is able to determine stock components will to be upgraded first in the search for power and which stock can be left in place a little

According to Ivan, We feel the exhaust, intercooler and intercooler are going to be the biggest restrictions. All of these items are just from the factory.

According to measurements, the factory exhaust has a (60mm) outer diameter and is down to 1.75-inch for about 8 in length to clear an underbody The mid-pipe attaches to a secondary converter, and because this cat is the O2 sensor, deleting it shouldn’t a check-engine light. The mid-pipe has a bullet-style resonator, which has an inner diameter smaller the rest of the exhaust system.

So clearly there’s some for improvement. We did some careful and feel that a 3-inch system will fit very and still be routed cleanly. We are several upgrade paths a side-entrance, dual-end outlet like we are using for our BMW 335i a dual muffler straight setup and possibly a tunable like we are producing for the EVO X.
