The four-cylinder turbo version of Hyundai?s first foray into rear-wheel-drive sports cars - the 2009 Hyundai Genesis Coupe - was always going to be favourite among enthusiasts and tuning houses.
Now, having had some time to investigate the inline-four Theta engine?s capabilities, tuners are starting to unleash its full potential.
Running 16psi (just over 1bar) of boost, Beyond Redline managed 228kW (306hp) and 332Nm (245lb-ft) of torque on a Dynojet setup, with a later attempt delivering 256kW (344hp) at the rears.
For your reference, the Genesis Coupe?s standard output with the four-cylinder turbo is around 160kW (210hp) and 302Nm (223lb-ft) at the flywheel.
Beyond Redline said it is working on advanced stages of the kit ? as well as finalising the setup that achieved the above figures ? and that 300kW (400hp) is next on the list of number and letter combos to match up with some squiggly lines.
