The Hyundai Genesis Coupe with its turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder officially has 210 HP and 223 lb-ft of torque at the flywheel, Edmunds dyno'd it and discovered 227 lb-ft at the wheels!



Not only did they get 227 lb-ft of torque at the wheels, they got 197 HP when making the dyno runs in fourth gear. If we work backwards using the rule of thumb 15% driveline losses for RWD cars, we see the approximate output the turbo four is 261 lb-ft of torque and 226 HP at the flywheel. Roughly about 7% more horsepower and a whopping 17% more torque than Hyundai states. Either Edmunds got a goosed version or the customers will be happily getting more bang for their buck.

it's a good start, plus the exhaust looks like an easy fix and could benefit from a nice power bump

I like this car, i like the potential too. I think hyundai knows what people expect from this car and are willing to give it to them. Maybe they'll be smart and offer performance packages for the powertrain and suspension.

Actually, pretty close to the amount of torque the M puts out

Convinced my friend to trade his mercury sable in for one. We'll see how that goes.

I drove a 2.0T Coupe and a 3.8GT Track Package Coupe the other day. Both were sick as hell. I love Hyundai's. :)

However, it does kinda piss me off that not too long ago, everyone (not here) was ripping on this car. But now that AMS has one, whoooa it's cool!

No need to sugar coat anything, people here were ripping on them too. Hyundai has made huuuuuuuuge strides towards making a quality product over the last 8-10 years and continue to do so. The Genesis, coupe and sedan, is an awesome car especially for the price.
