It’s not often we see modded Genesis Coupes these days, particularly not any as clean as Davis Y’s 2013 Genesis Coupe 3.8. Davis was having a bit of trouble getting his Genesis Coupe Wheels balanced properly, so a trip to the Mod Auto shop was in order. We got Davis’ GenCoupe into the shop so we could rebalance the wheels using our precision, top-of-the-line Hunter GSP9700 Road Force Balancer, which balances wheels and tires far more accurately than the equipment in your average corner “tire shop”.

Rolling on a set of PS MAX Coilovers, the Genesis Coupe Suspension is much improved over stock. The front fenders have also been rolled to accommodate the lowered stance.

After we got Davis’ wheels dialed in, we reinstalled them and pulled the GenCoupe back into the sun to get a better look in the light.Hyundai_GenCoupe_ARK_Solo-Performance_EXH_DAVIS-20

Under the hood, a R2C Cold Air Intake for Genesis keeps the 3.8 V6 fed and a beefy ARK Performance Strut Tower Brace to eliminate any movement in the shock towers under hard cornering.

In addition to the Sequence Rear Diffuser, a set of Sequence style Side Skirts really enhance the side profile of the Genesis Coupe – the side skirts aren’t available from Sequence anymore, making the combination that much more unique.

Note how the heat shield still is using the inlet from the OEM airbox to ensure it’s still getting fresh air through the duct.

And of course, we recorded a short clip so you could hear the sound for yourself.
