  1. Possible Transmission issue

    Hello, I own a 2013 Genesis 5.0 Rspec sedan. I bought it almost a year ago. I have an issue with the transmission. It is not broken, but it shift weirdly and revs engine for no reason sometimes. For example. If I go 20mph and floor it. It will down shift, go to 40mph, revs to 7000rpm. Then does...
  2. Removing Cat on 2013 R-Spec 5.0

    Hello I have researched and it appears MSA is no longer selling test pipes... I want some more breathability for the engine but some more growl but not loud or drone really... can I just leave my exhaust on and remove or hollow out the 2nd cats and if an exhaust shop says makes a test pipe...
  3. 2013 R-Spec 5.0 Sedan Pronounced but Polished Exhaust options?

    I am looking to upgrade my exhaust system on the 2013 R-spec 5.0 sedan. I keep seeing Dynomax VT but then I read somewhere that Dynomax is no longer selling it ? What part number of VT mufflers do I need to source. Are there other decent options that do not drone or have very little. Since I...

  5. Transmission Issue?

    2013 Genesis R-Spec 5.0 I have a possible transmission issue. When I am in manual 3rd, it seems almost like the torque converter clutch is locking and unlocking because intermittently, the tachometer will drop back to idle, then come back up. I know it's not just the tach because the engine...
  6. First Generation 2013 Genesis 5.0 R-Spec Phonebook

    Is there any way to save a "phonebook" on the car itself rather than relying upon the contacts in my phone? Phone is an LG G4 Android phone. Is there some menu I am missing somewhere?
  7. 2013 R-Spec 5.0 Sedan Opinions?

    I just picked up a new (to me) 2013 5.0 R-Spec and so far I love it! Any known issues with these cars? Does manually shifting damage the transmission?
  8. New 2013 5.0 R-Spec owner checking in

    Hello to all! I just traded my 2010 Camaro SS for a 2013 Hyundai Genesis R-Spec 5.0. The SS was nice, don't get me wrong, but I was tired of driving in Atlanta traffic with a stiff clutch for 1 hour each way! I test drove a Chevrolet SS and the Genesis, and you can guess which one followed me...

  10. 2014 R-Spec: 16,000 mile gas mileage experiment

    I bought my 2014 R-Spec brand new in April 2015 with 39 miles on the odometer. Being an engineer by training, I started keeping meticulous gas records in a notebook. I started using 89 octane gas when it was brand new and switched to 93 octane at 4,000 miles. Switched back to 89 octane at 8,000...
  11. Anyone running 245/45R18 on a 2013 R-spec Sedan?

    Wondering if anyone has run 245/45/18s on a 2013 5.0 sedan. Diameter is 2.2% lower than stock (at least the 235/45/19 "stock" and not the 245/45/19 "summer tire option" stock). I like the idea of effectively running slightly shorter gearing with the drop in diameter, but don't want to trigger...
  12. 2012 5.0 Rspec motor blown

    I was in and out of the dealer with this car since I got it. It was burning oil like crazy and I did several oil consumption tests every time it was 1.3 quarts low at 1000 miles. They had an excuse every time and made me do the test over and over. Each time forcing me to drive low on oil. Also...

    Considering a 2012 R-Spec

    Greetings all. I'm looking to replace my 2011 Sonata 2.0T and considering a used purchase for the first time ever. I was surprised to find a few R-Spec models available locally - test drove one of them and just loved it. Solid handling for such a large and spacious sedan, and the push from...

  20. Another R-Spec / 5.0 tune attempt? There may still be hope for us!

    This week while I was looking for a replacement item, I came across this 'new' commercial ECU tune by JETPP and could not believe that a 5.0 ECU modification was even possible, outside our little attempts with BTR! JET PP claims that if we ship them our chip, they will tune it and ship it back...
