  1. V8 Engine Air Filter(S)

    Yes there are 2 of them, a left and a right hence the S in the title. ;) Pretty simple and staright forward to change out with 2 exceptions. You need to remove the cross bracing over each filter and you also need to remove a single plastic pushpin to be able to flex the protective cover in order...

    Sprint Booster for the 2015 V8

    So today I was the Guinea pig for the 2015 V8 Sprint Booster. Great improvement on the throttle response. Had a blast driving on the 407 (toll highway) heading home. Got it from Rob at Uniq Performance who had worked with the manufacturers to get it into a current Gen owners hand. Anyone...
  3. Genesis G80 - V6 or V8? What will be available?

    So! What do you think? This is a tough call. I'm going to GUESS that "Genesis" wants the G80 to use the twin turbo V6. It'll have plenty of power and this will leave the G90 with a more powerful engine option. However, in a "best foot forward" introduction - would the V8 be a better idea? Some...
  4. No 2016 V8 5.0s????

    I have been shopping for a 2016 Genesis sedan, and I spent the weekend test driving the 3.8 RWD, a 3.8 AWD, and a 2015 5.0. Driving them back-to-back, I really got a feel for the differences in handling/power, and I finally decided that the 5.0 V8 was the right fit for me. I then asked when...
  5. 2013 R-spec owner trying to choose 2015 or 2016 V8

    I am fairly certain that I will be going to the Gen 2 in the near future. I will be getting the v8. Trying to find differences between the two to compare. Here is what I think I have found, but nobody makes a list of the changes, at least that I can find. In the 2015 model, there are 2...

  8. 2015 V8 Engines Air Filters

    About time for me to change my air filters, yes there are a left and a right on the Gen2 V8. :cool: Searched everywhere for Hyundai originals and aftermarket and finally settled on an equivalent made by WIX. For anyone looking for the Hyundai originals, search for 28127B1000 and 28128B1000 If...
  9. V8 Wheels - Paint Code

    Does anyone by chance know the paint code for the wheels that come on the V8 Gennies? I'm about to get the wheels redone on my E60 550i and really like the relatively light, gun metal color that are on them.

    Update: 2015 v8 dying at 4500 rpm's

    Ok so its be a while since my original post on my car shutting down at 4500 rpm's at hard acceleration or gradual roll to 4500. The fuel lines they ordered finally came in and were installed today. I am pleased to say that was the fix. Tech stated he could barely get any air to blow through old...
  12. Quick notes on V8 vs V6 vs V6 AWD

    I have the 5.0 but have had both 3.8 and 3.8 HTRAC as loaners for 5+ days and thought I'd share some of my personal opinions. Dynamically, V6 is far superior than V8. V6 turns in much better, is much more balanced throughout the corner, and is in general more athletic. V8 air suspension has...
  13. 2015 V8 Engines detune

    Hi All Quick questions: what is the reason Hyundai detuned Genesis engines (both V8 and V6)? Heavier cars and less HP is not an ideal combination....

    2015 V8 Dying at 4500 rpm

    So the other day I went to pass another car (very safely) and when the car got to around 4500 rpm's it lost all power almost as if I hit the brakes. I fell back in behind the car I was going to pass as I was not able to make the pass. I have replicated this several more times and the car is now...

    I am selling my wheels for my 2010 V-8 Genny. One has very minor rash, barely noticeable. The 4 wheels are in very good condition (car was in my garage every night and washed weekly). Also including the wing emblems (which are still in the shipping box, never used). Asking $500, plus...

  19. Engine Misfires - 2015 V8

    Other week I had the car start shaking fairly badly on a stop light, along with flashing check engine light. Car ended up stalling, although I was able to restart it, without the check engine light but still a rough idle. Car was smoother but throttled at higher RPMs, however every time it was...
  20. V6 vs V8

    I brought my V8 Ultimate Genesis in for service and I was given a V6 Ultimate loaner. I did test drive both vehicles prior to my purchase, but it has been a year since I drove the V6. Since it was a loaner car, I ended up having an extended test drive. The V6 has reasonable power, but it is...
