The Hyundai Genesis is more or less the underdog of the aftermarket car enthusiast world as it is one of the newer cars of the 21st century without a historical lineage or racing heritage. Hyundai has really stepped their game up over the last 8 years and is doing surprisingly, competitively well as far as power gains and handling opportunities. It’s already been a project car for numerous track days and, probably most favored of all motorsports, used quite a bit for amateur and professional drift events.

The Hyundai Genesis is definitely not a car to dismiss as it holds plenty of potential underneath the hood. It’s okay if you’re not too familiar with the Genesis just yet, because below our very own Jaybee Valledor and Nick Gregson has put together a very extensive and detailed list of the best modifications you can have installed on your car to get the most out of the Korean front-runner sports car. With two versions currently out in the market, the 2.0L Turbo and the 3.8L V6, you really can’t go wrong with which direction of awesome you want to go with.

#1 WHEELS
Hyundai Genesis Coupe Jaybees Friend (7)

There are, without a doubt, plenty of options out there for wheels. It’s difficult to really make a decision on which wheels to put on your Genesis, especially if you’re unsure about how the style of a particular wheel will look on a car.

We’ve all been there; headaches for days because we cant seem to find good pictures of the wheels we like on the car we love or. Imagination can really only take us so far. With you brain pre-occupied with other things, below we’ve given a little aid to your confusion!

In my opinion, both 19″ and 20″ look absolutely fantastic on the Genesis. Generally with a large diameter 19″ or 20″ wheel, you’d like to fill the wheel gap with adjustable suspension such as coilovers, but more on that later. For now, just enjoy these pics of the baller-ness that is the Hyundai Genesis on the beautiful M550 wheels from Avant Garde.

#2 Get Low and Improve Handling with Upgraded Suspension

Hyundai_GenCoupe_ARK_Solo-Performance_EXH_DAVIS-7

Genesis Coupe 3.8 on PS MAX Coilovers

One of the best things you can do to improve your Genesis Coupe is lower your suspension. Dropping the car eliminates unsightly wheelgap and transforms your GenCoupe into the sexy beast you know it’s supposed to be.

Drastically change the handling characteristics of your Hyundai Genesis with the BC Racing BR-Type Coilovers built to not only lower your car (can do so quite a bit actually), but improve your car’s attitude when turning into corners or enjoying some semi-aggressive driving through the canyons.

With 32 levels of dampening adjustability, the BC Racing BR-Type Coilovers offer a wide range of softness to stiffness of ride quality. Personally, I think the best level would be somewhere in the middle to a little to the stiffer side because I enjoy feeling the road and feeling the mechanical soul of the car.

The cool thing is that you can dial in exactly the ride height you need whether you’re trying to get the fastest track time at Laguna Seca or look as static and perfectly fitted as possible for the next car show. Adjusting coilovers does require a little patience to get the perfect, even height at all four corners, but if you’re mechanically inclined and enjoy wrenching and getting your hands dirty, then coilovers are the right fit for you.

A high-quality, good set of coilovers will cost you somewhere between $800-$1500 but if you’re just not ready to drop that kind of cash on a set, there are other legitimate options for you. A lot of people just don’t want to lower the car very much or deal with the probable inconvenience of the constant removal of the wheels to get access to the spinning perches that adjust the ride height. Some people just want a mild drop and have it stay that way forever and never ever touch them again, which is perfectly fine! The second option would be to rock some Eibach Pro Kit Lowering Springs for the Hyundai Genesis 2.0T which are nice because they lower the car just about 1.2-1.3 inches all-around (every car is different, but the lowering height is relatively similar on any year Genesis) and would still maintain roughly the same ride comfort when you drive around. EIBACH SPRINGS Genesis BEFORE and AFTErhyundai-genesis-pro-kit-2009-up_2With the lowering springs, you can not only enjoy better handling around corners, but enjoy a better wheel gap-less look! Plenty of car enthusiasts go for the lowering springs option because it’s relatively inexpensive while still improving suspension characteristics for any environment. The addition of aftermarket lowering springs might not look like much, but underneath the fenders is where all the magic happens. It’s a considerable difference and definitely something to think about. The mild drop can for sure change the entire appearance of the car whether you rolling on stock wheels or cruising with Avant Garde wheels.

Probably now you’re thinking about  what else could you do immediately that can make the fastest, most significant difference when turning hard or even drifting. The solution to this predicament would be the addition of sway bars, specifically the Eibach Anti-Roll Sway Bar Kit for the Hyundai Genesis. These bad boys will increase and/or decrease your car’s oversteer/understeer depending on which adjustment hole you attach your endlink to. Specs below:

Front:
· 29mm tubular with 2 adjustment holes.
· Hole 1 = 271 lbs/in 
· Hole 2 = 307 lbs/in  
· 8.6 lbs 
· Urethane bushings with grease grooves
Rear:
· 22 mm tubular with 2 adjustment holes
· Hole 1 = 433 lbs/in 
· Hole 2 = 504 lbs/in 
· 4.8 lbs

#3 Be Heard & Seen With a Performance Exhaust.

An exhaust system comes in numerous parts but you don’t necessarily need to have every single exhaust component on your car for improved performance or a louder, more aggressive sound. With the Genesis, there is a 2.0L Turbocharged version as well as a 3.8L V6 version and each have their own prospective performance gains with their particular exhaust designs.

First Up, the Hyundai Genesis 2.0L Turbo…

ARK Performance GRIP Exhaust for the Hyundai Genesis Coupe 2.0T

You have quite a few Exhaust Options for Genesis Coupe 2.0T – so all the selection can seem overwhelming. For a turbocharged car, generally speaking, you’ll get the most power out of a downpipe (more than any cat-back exhaust), intercooler and ECU tune, along with a performance intake. An exhaust is often optional if you’ve got a performance downpipe, but a proper exhaust does sound good and with the right tips, can really set off the look of a car.

ARK Performance GRIP Exhaust for the Hyundai Genesis Coupe 2.0T

With the ARK Performance GRIP Exhaust, your Genesis 2.0 Turbo will gain an approximate +8 wheel horsepower, +13 lb/ft of torque, and amazingly also maintain the exhaust sound to around 85 decibels (93 is understood to be the legal limit for exhaust sound of a vehicle.

Specs: 19×9.5 ET9 / 19×10.5 ET12 – Federal 225/35-19 / 245/35-19

 

 
The Injen Technology Cat-Back Exhaust for Hyundai Genesis Coupe 2.0T offers quad tips, a great sound and more importantly, a significant boost in performance – 15whp and 26wtq!
That said, ARK Performance, as I mentioned, makes a great exhaust for the Genesis Coupe, and we also proudly offer Injen and MagnaflowCat Back Exhausts for Genesis Coupe 2.0T, which are also great choices.
Then there’s the a downpipe for the 2.0T models. The downpipe is often the single biggest point of restriction on a turbo car. The OEM cat is incredibly restrictive and typically integrated directly into the downpipe, so a downpipe equipped with a sports catalytic converter will make more power. However, most of the gain from a performance downpipe comes from a performance tune that takes advantage of the enhanced exhaust flow… and a downpipe, without a tune, will cause a Check Engine Light.
 
 
A catted downpipe is going to cost more than a cheap illegal catless downpipe and will produce more power than stock, but is less likely to set a CEL  – but some catted downpipes can be run without causing a CEL. A downpipe with a catalytic converter costs more because of the expensive materials that a catalytic converter is made of – like titanium, platinum and other expensive rare metals.  On the downside, there are not currently any catted downpipes on the market that we’re aware of, CARB certified which could make SMOG or emissions difficult if the car has to smog within a few years. Consider all these things carefully when choosing a Downpipe for Genesis Coupe 2.0T. After the exhaust system has you sounding and looking the way you want, the next thing to think about is cranking up the power.

Moving onto the Hyundai Genesis 3.8L V6…

Just like there are brands like Gucci and Louis Vuitton, there are other brands to choose from when deciding which cat-back exhaust system you need for your Genesis. Unlike the turbocharged version, however, the 3.8L V6 is a Naturally Aspirated engine (NA) that doesn’t pull its horsepower and torque from its forced induction (FI) 2.0L turbo counterpart. As far as power gains go, there aren’t a variety of options for the NA as there is for FI (or any turbocharged/supercharged car for that matter). For the 3.8L V6, it really comes down to the extent to which you modify the exhaust system. Let’s get into it, shall we?

Injen Cat-Back Exhaust for Hyundai Genesis 3.8L V6

Probably the first thing to think about is the cat-back exhaust system. Cat-back refers to the exhaust piping that go behind the catalytic converters and is the last few pieces of the entire system that the exhaust flow exits from. The Injen Cat-Back Exhaust for the Hyundai Genesis 3.8L V6 is a great choice as it will yield a gain of +8hp and +9lb/ft of torque. With its 4″ Quad Burnt Titanium tips, the exhaust cut-out on the stock Genesis rear bumper is certainly filled. It is agreed upon many Hyundai Genesis car enthusiasts that the Injen Exhaust is by far one of the best sounding exhausts they’ve ever heard on the 3.8L V6. This is the optimal choice of cat-back exhaust if you’re looking for an exhaust that has little-to-no noise at idle and if you want a quieter, more refined exhaust tone. Once you climb up the RPM range though, Injen’s unique sound comes roaring out and will definitely widen your eyes and make you smile from ear-to-ear.

Of course, there are other options out there, and luckily for us, ARK Performance has blessed us with a load of options that, when combined together, squeeze out every last bit of horsepower the Hyundai’s Lambda V6 engine can give us. Let’s start off by mentioning the ARK Performance GRIP Exhaust System for the Hyundai Genesis 3.8L V6. Where the Injen lacks in low-range exhaust sound, the ARK succeeds with its Helmholtz Resonators to help reduce the cabin drone while also sound mean and aggressive at 3000rpm.

  • +8hp and +13lb/ft torque of dyno-proven power gains
  • Mirror-polished, 2.5″ diameter, SUS304 stainless steel piping

  • Maximum exhaust flow with reduced back pressure
  • Cross-flow Y-Pipe for maximum exhaust flow and engine response
  • 88mm diameter quad exhaust tips
  • Optional Downpipe available for better exhaust flow and power
  • Helmholtz resonators give an aggressive exhaust tone without cabin drone
  • 85db exhaust volume at 3000RPM
  • Polished, Gloss Black, and Techno exhaust tips available
  • All hardware and instructions included for easy installation

So now that you’ve gotten your cat-back exhaust, whichever one that may be, it’s time to further improve the exhaust system.

You might be thinking “Wow my car is dramatically faster and it sounds freakin’ AWESOME (and loud). What more can I do to increase the power for my V6 Genesis?”. If you are wondering what else you could possibly do, I have an answer. After installing a cat-back exhaust, the last bit of modification you could do to get the most out of bolt-on performance would be the inclusion of the ARK Performance R-Spec Headers for the Hyundai Genesis 3.8L V6. These are the first set of pipes that the exhaust gases touch and immediately improves the flow. With the addition of the ARK R-Spec Headers for Hyundai Genesis, you will see power gains up to 15hp and 9lb/ft torque. The ARK R-Spec Headers are made with T304 stainless steel, 2″ piping for optimum power in the mid-range to redline. The de-burred and ported header inlets and outlets provide a better, smoother exhaust flow for more power.

ARK Performance Spec-R Headers for Hyundai Genesis 3.8L V6

Trust me, the massive combination of Headers + Downpipes + Cat-Back Exhaust is such a significant upgrade that your 3.8L V6 Hyundau Genesis will be considered a different beast entirely. In conjunction, these three bolt-upgrades together will yield an approximate, accumulative total of just about +33 horsepower and +31 lb/ft of torque. Sound-wise, your car will be loud; like, “racecar” loud. But at the end of the day, these modifications are created to bring out the best performance Hyundai’s Lambda V6 engine can produce and that is honestly what a true car enthusiast could ever wish for. On one final note, below are some videos of these three upgrades working together…

#4 Turn Up the Boost with Performance Bolt-Ons

hyundais002
For the Genesis 2.0T, ECU tuning options are just now becoming readily available for the 2.0T market, but ECU tuning should unlock a modest bit of power from these motors – some early tuners have taken a Stage I car from 230whp to 280whp and torque increased from 204wtq to 322wtq… so that’s certainly promising, to say the least. But to have those sort of gains, you need to keep in mind that you MUST have the supporting hardware to back it up – supporting Stage I mods typically includes Intake, Downpipe and FMIC.

New to the market is the Turbo Transformer Performance Module for Hyundai Genesis Coupe 2.0T, a simple piggy-back type device for just $199 that safely increases boost pressure slightly for a safe gain of approximately 25whp and 25wtq! While nowhere near as complex as a OBD II based tuner, this piggy-back device installs and can be removed literally in under a minute and offers a nice gain for the price.

Featuring a microcontroller instead of a resistor like the so-called “chips” that used to be around on the internet, the Turbo Transformer is the genuine article, and digitally alters MAP sensor output only after exceeding 12psi of boost. Your ECU will see that extra boost on the MAP sensor and then call for the appropriate target lambda and spark values to provide a nice increase in power and boost without breaking the bank. Scope out the dyno results below and see for yourself.

After ECU tuning, the next most important bolt on for performance is the intercooler, by increasing it in size (thereby increasing its volume), is able to stay cool for a longer period of time, reducing detonation (which also helps preserve your engine), lower air charge temps mean the car’s engine makes the most power possible rather than bogging down in the heat.

A stock intercooler compared to an aftermarket intercooler.
 
Even after just a few back-to-back pulls on the dyno, as the car starts to get saturated with heat (a term called “heat soak”), it starts making less and less power… for instance AWE Tuning‘s B8 Audi S5 lost 25whp after 8 back to back pulls, leading them to develop the ColdFront cooling system for significant power gains. Improving the car’s cooling capability (by fitting a larger intercooler) will help prevent that power loss. Mishimoto recently launched two intercooler options for the Genesis Coupe 2.0T; a Street Edition Front Mount Intercooler for Hyundai Genesis Coupe 2.0T for those on a budget pushing just a bit more power than stock, and a RACE Edition Front Mount Intercooler Kit for Hyundai Genesis Coupe 2.0T, which features a larger J-Line intercooler, capable of supporting up to 500whp, which is more than enough for the Fastest Genesis Coupe 2.0T in the world.
 

“STREET” FMIC Kit


“RACE” FMIC Kit
 
Mind you, when it gets super hot out the intercooler can only cool to about as hot as the air outside without doing something like a air-to-water intercooler (complex) or methanol injection setup – or adding a water sprayer over the existing intercooler (this is kind of ghetto, but it is an effective trick used by road racers – saw it in an old issue of Turbo- a mag that’s now out of print). Increasing your cooling capacity- as well as the elimination of flimsy plastic endtanks – makes the Koyorad HD Radiator for Genesis Coupe an especially appealing option to keep the car cool to make optimal power reliably and consistently.
 

 
Afterwards, a nice touch up to really round out your performance gains is the Injen Cold Air Intake for the Hyundai Genesis 2.0 Turbo which will definitely sharpen throttle response. You’ll even obviously hear a whole lot more turbo noise like that spooling sound; which is a long, loud gradual “whoosh” as you climb up the RPMs. Before we get to the filter, the actual intake tube itself – if streamlined for performance – will yield more power regardless of whatever way the air cleaner at the end is configured. By this same token, the “Hotside” and “Coldside” “Chargepipes”, which are the sections of tube that connect the intercooler to the turbocharger (hot side) and throttle body (cold side).

Injen Intercooler Chargepipes for Hyundai Genesis Coupe 2.0T will grant another +9whp and +11wtq for even greater power, and because they’re not plastic, you’ve eliminated the boost leaks in the OEM system for much sharper throttle response and faster spool.

 
A short ram intake with the filter right on the end without a lot of heat shielding that doesn’t significantly relocate the intake to a cooler area – ex, a cone filter and tube to the throttle body – will likely be sucking in extra hot air under the hood. Remember what we said earlier about Air Charge temperature, and how hotter air will make less power? Yup, that again. A short ram intake, when paired with a heat shield that insulates the filter from the hot air in the engine bay will make more power and make it much more consistently.
 
These performance intakes feature heat shielding and air ducts designed to draw in the coolest air possible, usually paired with a tuned intake tube. This style of intake will make the most power the most consistently, because it will consistently be drawing in a cooler air charge but with a much higher flow rate than the OEM filter.
The Injen Cold Air Intake for Hyundai Genesis Coupe 2.0T offers the greatest power gain of any Genesis Coupe intake we offer with a gain of +10whp and +17wtq, offering more power than stock.
The AEM Performance Intake for Genesis Coupe 2.0T offers a modest gain of +7whp for a different look than the Injen setup.
Last of the systems for the GenCoupe 2.0T is the K&N Typhoon Intake for the Hyundai Genesis Coupe 2.0T. Like the AEM setup, the K&N Typhoon intake yields +7whp and +9wtq, a modest gain, but it’s not as potent as the Injen setup.

#5 Look The Part with Exterior Mods

ARK-SFX-CF-Hood-Hyundai-Genesis-Coupe-Installed

After you’ve sorted the stance of the car, the sound, the wheels and the performance, then you may want to think about Genesis Coupe Exterior upgrades, and the fun thing is, you have a huge selection; don’t even worry about it because you’ve got front lip, headlights, tail lights, widebody kits – really, whatever you want.February_2015_Scion_FRS_Subaru_BRZ_LocalFRS_Meet-63
The first thing people think of when they want to improve the exterior styling of ther car is most likely a front lip. A front lip gives the car the appearance of looking lower but more so, makes the front end ofthe car look….better. It’s a subtle add-on but has the ability to completely change the look of the Hyundai Genesis versus just sticking with the stock bumper. We offer the Carbon Fiber MSR Style Front Lip the the Hyundai Genesis which looks great, very durable and is real carbon fiber.

For basically everything else, parts are pretty easy to come by. ARK Performance makes a TON of products for the Genesis Coupe and they’re quite well made, and are actually local to Southern California, not too far from us.
ARK has a very close relationship with Hyundai and Kia, so there’s widebody kits, exhausts, downpipes, all kinds of suspension available from a wide variety of suppliers and the car uses a common bolt pattern, so wheels are easy to come by – you can pick and choose from almost any wheel manufacturer, and we can get almost any wheels for Genesis Coupe here at ModBargains.
It’s worth noting that ARK is who makes those cool Wing Emblems for Genesis Coupe.
So that’s it for our 5 best mods for the Hyundai Genesis Coupe, we hope this gives you a solid starting point to work with so that you can enjoy Hyundai’s RWD missile to the fullest.
