Hyundai is doing a fantastic job at targeting the tuner crowd, as evident at the SEMA 2013 show. The Korean automaker unveiled three unique Hyundai Genesis Coupe concepts and announced a new Crate Engine Program for the Lambda 3.8L, direct-injected V6 and Theta 2.0L, turbocharged 4-cylinder engines. The program will begin in December 2013, and will offer crate engines at a discounted rate when compared to an equivalent factory replacement engine.
The 3.8 liter V6 will be offered at $9,000 unchanged from factory spec, which is 348hp and 295lb-ft of torque. Two options are available for the 2.0L - the first option is the turbo-ready engine priced at $4,500. The second option is the turbo-equipped engine priced at $6,000.
“As more Genesis Coupes have entered the pre-owned enthusiast market since its 2009 launch, we’ve witnessed strong interest in leveraging the low cost potential of this rear-drive platform and its powertrains for the tuner market and motorsports,” said JohnKrafcik, president and CEO, Hyundai Motor America. “Now, with our new crate engine program, Hyundai is making it more affordable for these same enthusiasts to modify their Genesis Coupe, or perhaps inject some high-value horsepower into other platforms.”
Bisimoto Engineering gave the SEMA crowd a preview of what can be achieved with a naturally aspirated 3.8L V6 by fitting his RWD Hyundai Genesis Coupe with a twin-turbo kit, customized camshafts, steel rods, and 200cc injectors. The end result was a coupe with an engine output over 1,000hp.
