And as for the sonata, how much power do you put in a front wheel drive auto? But this car will get some mods made for it.
So it should make more power at a lower psi, but just how far is the question. So what's the compression ratio compared to the Evo's 4B11?

My fellow Mitsubishi enthusiasts.
Let me preface my comments by first stating that I truly like the Hyundai Genesis. It is a cost effective performer, and a great looking, well designed car which is fun to drive. Moreover, it stands out as a forced induction 4cyllinder RWD performer in an era off bland, heavy cars which are boring by design, derivative, homogenous, and compact in name only. However, I liked it alot better when a version of it was initially planned for sale by Mitsu as the new Starion. And now, we see the same use of the 4B11 and derivatives to produce FWD and AWD performance in other low cost, high performace Hyundai Products. It truly saddens me that Mitsu missed the boat on the sales bonanza that these cars have become. Hopefully, we will see a Colt Ralliart, or a 4B11 turbo powered Eclipse, Galant, or FWD Lancer. Frankly, a flex-fuel 4B11 family turbo fwd compact could be just the sales boost mitsu needs. It always sad when a coroporation is beaten over the head with their own motor. Does anyone remember the Ferrari Dino V6 engine used in the Lancia Stratos, or the GNX Buick 3.8L V6 dropped into the 1989 Pontiac Trans Am GTA Anniversary Turbo?

We have 3 2.0t's and 1 3.8 on the way to our dealership right now. Should be hitting a dealer near you any day now. Im interested to see how the 8 speed works out in a performance car. Seems a bit much for me. We will see

If a ferrari 458 doesnt need 8 gears a genesis coupe doesnt. I just feel like an 8 speed is more oriented for fuel mileage and straight line speed. Not track racing. It is awesome in a 5.0 genesis or equus yes but im not sold on the genesis coupe
