I have a 2012 RSpec Genesis which has the GDi V8. I was told that this V8 engine usually fail at around 75,000-100,000 miles. Is it possible to swap in the Tau GDi V8 from a 2016 Genesis?

You were told wrong. Keep oil changed, use OEM oil filters. There are many of those engines lasting past 200,000 miles. I know one friend of mine that has a 2012 R-Spec that is over 225,000 miles and still going strong.

some rspecs from that year are known to burn oil but not just fail at 100k, keep it full of oil and it'll be fine for a long time

I hope you are right because I read about the oil burning issue in a Jalopnik article. How many people do you know of that have over 200,000 miles on their 2012 Genesis Rspec? I use Mobil -1 fill synthetic and K&N oil filter

My car burns a lot of oil. I need to confirm how much after 1000 miles.

Just keep the oil full and you'll be good.

I made the mistake of thinking I was good to go and not checking my oil. My r spec was one of the rare affected engines.

A 2015 GDi is real similar in almost all part numbers. When I changed out my engine, I just went with another 12-14 engine, as the 15 didnt have enough exactly the same for me to gamble on.

My 2012 RSpec 5.0 has 140,000 miles and still running like the day I got it 6yrs ago. It does burn oil, but I noticed that a couple years after I got it.
