Yes, I actually heard the same thing. I'm sure you can make a good amount of power quickly with the 2.0T versus the 3.8. While with the 3.8 you could put on a huge turbo / supercharger.... that would also cost an arm and a leg. But, as with anything else, people are making a ton of power with forced induction on 2.0L engines, just talk to TalonIV, drxlcarfreak, MoparDSM, etc etc. I'll put it like this.... even though it's a boxer, there's a reason the new WRX / STi will be 2.0L Also heard that turbo stock can take a beating (turn up the boost!), but that's hearsay, wouldn't count on my word. Like Bryzee said, I believe there would be much more aftermarket support than the 3.8, is that an incorrect assumption?
Originally posted by Bryzee2.0T takes mods a whole lot better from what I hear. I would have gone with the turbo also it seems like it would fit better for tuners.
Take a look at this: http://www.gencoupe.com/2-0t/35714-tony20tgen-stage-3-build-thread.html I havent followed the thread for awhile, but he had some pretty insane plans for his 2.0T. There are a bunch of threads here too: http://www.gencoupe.com/2-0t/
Originally posted by ScribusAwesome thanks, I have to say that the 2.0T base model is pretty much as good as the r-spec. I just don't have the Brembo system. Which is one of my goals down the road. I've just seen a lot of mods for the 3.8 and not near as many for the 2.0. But maybe I'm not looking in the right areas.
geez gotta wipe this drool off my desk. 600+hp LAGLESS turbo setup I see why you're going through all your prelim work drxlcarfreak! Get that girl up and raging

Huh, don't think I saw that one. Makes sense though. You have to believe that they highly under-tune those engines, considering it's Hyundai. But 100 lb-ft??? That's more than 30% increase over stock. As a result, I wonder if the rest of the powertrain can handle it, thus being the limiting factor in the setup. Are there any references regarding what it can handle?
