2010 Hyundai Genesis Coupe 2.0T Turbo

Hyundai knows 210 horsepower in a 3380-pound car won’t astound anyone. It imagines the base Genesis coupe with its 2.0-liter turbocharged four as a blank canvas for tuners and speed-widget makers chasing the young buyers who will be hooked by the turbo’s $22,750 starting price.

2010 Hyundai Genesis Coupe 2.0T TurboOne thing is certain: There will be lots of zoom parts available. The 1998cc four is the same basic engine as in the 291-hp Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution, both engines being byproducts of the Global Engine Manufacturing Alliance, a joint venture among Hyundai, Mitsubishi, and Chrysler.
Similarities outweigh the differences, we’re told, between the Evo’s motor and Hyundai’s all-aluminum Theta four with its twin-cam variable valve timing and Mitsubishi TD04H turbo making 15.0 psi. Core components such as pistons and rods should move freely between them, for example. Hyundai’s engine uses a different computer, from Siemens. The software wasn’t intentionally made easy to crack, “but it’s not very tough,” says one Hyundai exec with a wink. That means up to 300 horsepower should be possible without major surgery.

Three trim levels include base, Premium, and Track. All are well equipped, though Premium brings a power driver’s seat, an Infinity stereo, a sunroof, and keyless start. As with the V-6 Track, the 2.0T Track version features a stiffer suspension, 19-inch wheels, Brembo brakes, a limited-slip diff, aluminum pedals, xenon headlamps, fog lights, and rear spoiler. One item available only on the 2.0T Track: red cloth inserts for the black seats.

The 4B11 as used in the Hyundai Genesis Coupe is not the same engine as used in the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution - the Evolution uses the 4B11T, a high pressure turbo engine with a closed deck block. the 4B11 is a open deck block, and is the engine shared with the Lancer Ralliart.
