  1. Genesis will be giving up the V8 then?

    It looks like with the refresh Genesis will not offer the v8 on the G80 and only for a few years with the G90. Afterwards, that is it: https://www.caranddriver.com/news/a27506533/genesis-v-8-engine-future/
  2. Tune for 5.0 Rspec TEST CAR NEEDED!!!

    I've been searching for tuners for the 5.0 Rspec that can actually crack the factory ECU and tune it effectively. I also know that for this platform cracking the factory ECU to tune it was somewhat of an issue. I found a company out of Washington State called Tork Motorsports, that has a 450HP...
  3. 4.6 Cold Weather Performance

    Hello, I don't post often on the forums, but didn't see anything else posted on this topic and was curious if anybody else has noticed the same thing. In relatively cold weather (< 50 degrees for here in Florida), the 4.6 in my 2009 Genesis feels much more responsive (particularly in the...

    Imagine these sounds in a Revised Tau Genesis Coupe

    great video and article... Flat plane V8. Massive power, and massive natural sounds with variable exhaust setting. Shelby GT 350. Demonstration of various exhaust settings, with announcer. Now that sedan is not as sporty/light, maybe this would not be good set up, compared to previous R-Spec...
  5. 2015 Genesis Tau imaginary dyno

    I went ahead and drew up my interpretation of how the 2015 Tau v8 should perform on a real dyno in comparison to the last gen 5.0. I basically added a little more torque @ an earlier rpm while also making the horsepower max earlier based on hyundais claimed figures. From what i see the everyday...

  8. Tau 5.0 cleans up its act.

    As new , my 5.0 produced a light coating of soot on my white rear bumper. No big deal, jugs wiped it off. After about 4,000 miles, it has just stopped doing this and runs clean. I assume the engine break had something to do with this, but I expected this to go on longer than it did...

    After looking at some random intakes I came across the injen sp1386p..I have not seen in person but on Google it looks like it could fit the 4.6. Any thoughts?
  10. Intake Question--4.6 Tau

    Hey everyone, just purchased a 2009 Genesis 4.6 and absolutely love the car. I have been reading up on threads regarding upgrading the intake and was contemplating, since the stock intake set up is pretty good, would dropping a K&N filter in the stock box and replacing the stock piping from the...
  11. Need to install used 4.6 TAU engine

    My 2009 Genesis has a 4.6 TAU engine (114,000 miles) that is apparently too broken and too complicated to fix. I have posted here previously about the problems with the entire right side out of time. Several mechanics have told me to just buy and swap another used engine. Does anyone know a...
  12. Proud new owner of a 2009 4.6 TAU /tech

    Hi Everyone, I picked up a black on black 2009 Genesis 4.6 about 2 weeks ago. I have been wanting one for a few years but was hesitant about it. After 2 weeks, I can honestly say "what a car". Powerful, Comfortable and sleek. I have a couple things to get done that are under warranty. 1...
  13. R2C Cold Air Intake Interest??

    I'm new here, just bought my Genesis 4.6 last week. I also currently work as a project engineer designing new cold air intake systems at a company called R2C Performance. We already have intake systems for all the Genesis Coupes with the exception of the 2013 turbo which is to be completed soon...

    Speaking of the Tau engine...

    There is apparently a "book" out on it (them): http://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/hyundai-tau-engine-jesse-russell/1113221167 I'm very skeptical however of any book that has "High quality content by Wikipedia articles" in its book overview, however, especially considering the Wikipedia Tau Engine...

    Custom Fab Intake for the Tau

    First off, I tried searching for this question but my droid wont allow me to type in the search field. I just called Airaid to inquire what it would take for them to create an intake setup for the Tau. Apparently, Im the first person to ever call them about the Genesis. They would need a...

  17. 5.0l 429hp tau v8

    Back in June, many news reports indicated that the Equus would receive an engine upgrade to a 5.0L 429HP V8 in the March 2011 time frame. Has anybody heard or read anything recently confirming the March date? My lease on my 09 Genesis is up in March and I'm looking to get into an Equus next...

  19. Any one else relieved the TAU didn't deliver Direct injection?

    When the Genesis came out with the TAU there was talk about of a Direct Injected version, 5.0 version, turbo version... Recently BWM, Mini, VW, have all had major recalls around their direct injection systems.... This isn't a rant about other brands... however... Reading those , I am glad...
