Mini Feature: Andrew’s Next Mod Genesis

1

Hyundai surprised a lot of people when they released the Genesis being a company with no prior sports car platform to speak of unless you make the stretch to include the Tiburon.

In 2009 it was tough to say how the car would do in regards to initial sales and aftermarket acceptance/support, however about a year or so after initial release it’s fairly safe to say that the Genesis has been well received.

Andrew along with the crew at Next Mod figured that the Genesis would be the perfect car to mod for the 2010 track/show season and together built the car getting the spotlight today.

Starting with GT platform the turbo 2.0 motor was allowed to breathe and exhale better thanks to a Grimmspeed intake manifold spacer, AEM cold air intake, Ultimate Racing 3″ downpipe, secondary cat delete, and HKS catback exhaust.

Other performance modifications include a a recently added inter cooler, Torsen LSD, RRM lightweight crank pulley, and a PowerAxel PowerX ecu re flash, and to add a little show with all that go the motor received silicone hoses and a custom paint treatment.

With all those mods Andrew has a reason to leave the hood up

Andrew can brake a little later for corners in his Hyundai thanks to KPR stainless steel brake lines and a Brembro big brake it, and the SMA coil overs along side a strut bar help keep the car planted during high speed maneuvers.

The running gear on this Genny are genuine 19″ Volk GT-F wheels with Bridgestone Potenza RE 760 sport tires in 245/35/19s up front and giant 275 30’s in the rear.

For having no prior sports car Hyundai did a great job on the design

As the Genesis is fairly unique looking car Andrew decided to keep the body fairly simple choosing to only add a Canadian spec spoiler, M&S badges, M& S grill, tinted headlights, CF fog surrounds, and a Bliss front lip.

Even though Andrew’s kept himself quite busy putting in work on his Genesis he has also found the time to start the www.ontariogenesisclub.ca for he and his fellow Ontario based enthusiasts.

Andrews full modification list is below and he would like to thank:
