Nica’s 2010 Genesis 2.0T R-Spec Build

We’ve come to the realization that more and more Hyundai Genesis 2.0 T owners now have great expectations when it comes to upgrading the performance of their cars now that the DynoJet CMD is available as an effective tuning program. Just a few weeks ago, AMS Performance received a call from one such owner named Nica with a final goal of around 400whp on her brand new 2010 Hyundai Genesis 2.0T R Spec. This is quite an impressive goal to say the least . . . but as usual, a goal we’re extremely eager to work with!

Nica is definitely no stranger to turbo-charged vehicles having owned a Subaru STI prior to her Genesis. Although she enjoyed driving and customizing her STI but was in search of something unique and different unto which she came across the Genesis 2.0T. Already knowing that the Genesis 2.0T Track package had been out for roughly a year, Nica did some research and decided to wait for the R-Spec – foregoing all the plush bells and whistles of the Track package while retaining all the raw hardware needed to create one powerful, well-rounded street tuner.

AMS took delivery of her Genesis R Spec late last week. Based on her budget, the initial goal we have set this time around will produce roughly 300whp. Further down the road, Nica plans to upgrade to even larger injectors, a larger turbo, as well as upgraded pistons and connecting rods. Below is the current mods list for her build. Be sure to check back with us on the AMS blog throughout the next few weeks to see more details and images of this build. For all the Genesis 2.0T enthusiasts out there, this is definitely one project you won’t want to miss!

  • AMS Fuel System
