Hyundai Genesis on Track after Haltech Tune and Upgrades
This white 2012 Hyundai Genesis coupe r-spec 2.0T came in for some mods to boost the power output of the 2.0L turbocharged Theta engine. Baseline dyno showed 178whp on our Dyno Dynamics, at which time we planned the following:
Haltech Hyundai Genesis Platinum Pro Plug-In standalone ems (PN HT055045)
Injector Dynamics ID 1000cc fuel injectors
MXP O2 Housing
Tune by Hal at Dynosty

Next, the stock ECU was removed and a Haltech Pro Plug-In ecu was fitted in it’s place. Fuel, ignition, cam timing and boost were dialed in on the Haltech standalone, yielding 232whp on 93octane pump gas – a 54whp or 30% increase in power!
The customer runs the car at SCCA autocross events, and recently took it to Putnam Park road course for a Porsche track day event. He sent a link to the footage along with these kind words, “Here’s a video from the last session on Sunday. I was the only car out there on street tires in that session. The second car I passed is a 2011 GT3 on Hoosier R6’s. Thanks for the help and for the perfect tune.”
