Has anyone considered unleashing the stock 375 horses of the Genesis 3.5L twin-turbo V6 ? it seems that Genesis is holding them down to smooth the luxury experience (which the car is designed for, it's not a BMW X5 M competition). However, the car could use some more power with adequate suspension and maybe gearbox tuning, especially for straight-line acceleration. Comments?

I think the jb4 will work with the gv80. I don't see why it wouldn't. but supporting mods might need to be created for more power. like the burger tuning intakes. they were made for the stinger and work with the g70 but as far as I know they don't fit the g80. so there will probably need to be some modification to that to work.

so my guess is an easy 50hp or so with only the jb4 but it might take some time for supporting mods to be made to use stronger maps. the jb4 works will the g70, g80, g90. so I don't see why the gv70 or gv80 would be any different.

if enough people are interested the mods will come. this discussion is a good start.

I’m all for increasing the output on the 3.5tt. This thing is anemic and it still guzzles the fuel. If it’s going to be this thirsty, it should at least have more ponies.

Love to see a high power version with like 500+ horsepower to compete with the M line for BMW or blackwing from Cadillac. Heck even something around 474hp at least

this is a 3-pin sensor, I believe it's the map sensor. there are 2 sensors for the beta jb4. map (3-pin) and tmap (4-pin, known as "rainbow") that's the one I can't locate. I removed the 2 airboxes, no-luck. I think I will try to find a non-genesis mechanic and pay him to locate

Yeah, I'm not seeing a 4 pin sensor anywhere that's easy to get to without performing exploratory surgery

So we have found the the 3 pin connections.
Burger will have to come out with a CANbus Firmware update in future. But he tells me that it should get about 50hp gain without the CANbus update and about 80hp gain when the CANbus update is available.
Should be (2) 3 pin connectors as per Burger
