Hyundai’s aren’t what they used to be. They’re everything they were, and more. The Hyundai Genesis Couple 2.0 liter turbo is a shining example of excellent bang-for-your-buck and your buck goes even further with the 2013 model year. The turbo 4-cylinder engine will pin you in your seat with 274 horsepower and 275 pound-feet of torque, a 30 percent increase over the 2012 model year. The 2013 Genesis Coupe also gets a facelift front and rear, new suspension, crisper steering, and a host of interior features that make it a serious competitor with other sport coupes like the venerable Ford Mustang and Scion FR-S. Now, owners of the 2013 Hyundai Genesis Coupe 2.0 liter turbo can get a leg up on the competition with a guaranteed increase in horsepower and acceleration by installing the air intake system.
The K&N 69-5311TTK air intake is a high-quality performance upgrade. It utilizes a mandrel-bent aluminum intake to help streamline airflow into the turbo inlet and also provide a better engine and turbo sound. The system incorporates a heat shield to help protect incoming air from heat under the hood and also maintains use of the factory fresh air duct.
Performance engines like this one don’t just need a lot of air; they need a lot of clean air. That’s why K&N’s engineers fitted the 69-5311TTK air intake with the RC-4640XD oversized, conical air filter. The filter has a large surface area and is made using K&N’s oiled cotton gauze air filter media for excellent airflow rates and outstanding filtration efficiency. The filter is also washable and reusable and can go for up to 100,000 miles between cleanings, depending on driving conditions.
A well-designed air intake system looks fantastic under the hood but unless it’s also helping to produce more horsepower, you’re missing the “go” and you just have the “show.” Good thing the 69-5311TTK delivers. On the dyno, the 69-5311TTK air intake produced an estimated additional 16.6 horsepower at 4014rpm and 29.9 pound-feet of torque at 3119rpm over the factory air intake system. That’s a substantial gain for a 2.0 liter 4-cylinder motor.
The 69-5311TTK air intake is easy to install and does not require any additional modifications to fit and function properly. It’s also backed by K&N’s famous Million Mile Limited Warranty so owners can have a peace of mind that their intake is covered for the life of their vehicle.
Hyundai isn’t just the economical choice for cars anymore. They’re a serious performance contender and the 2013 Genesis Coupe 2.0 liter turbo is a prime example of that. Owners of this impressive machine can show just how impressive their Genesis is with the K&N 69-5311TTK Typhoon Performance Air Intake System. Get yours today!
