Collection: Hyundai Genesis Performance Air Intakes

Hyundai Genesis Coupe is a grand tourer class of sports cars. They are great for racers and car lovers. Its robust power makes you feel like you are a part of the fast and furious team. Likewise, the sporty looks create a distinction from the standard family sedan. 

However, nothing sets it apart from those with the same brand and model. When another Genesis Coupe cruises beside you, there's little distinction between the two, and the experience of being unique is gone. 

An upgrade will solve the problem. Improving the engine will give you the power to dominate the road and leave behind other sports cars. You can also enhance the exteriors for a unique touch. You can drive with comfort, knowing no other car looks like yours.

With so many options for upgrades, it can be perplexing where to start. You can begin by focusing on either a power boost or an exterior enhancement. If you opt for output improvement, then an excellent way to start is to upgrade the air intake.

How Does Air Intake Works? 

A car's engine requires a perfect blend of air and fuel to run.  In good combustion, air quality matters a lot. The air must be clean and free from impurities. It should also be colder for the effective burning of fuel.

The engine heats everything around it. As a result, the air around the engine has a high temperature. A high-temperature air leads to low combustion. Thus, resulting in higher fuel consumption.

This is where the Hyundai Genesis cold air intake comes in. It cools down the air and filters impurities Thus, giving the engine a cold cleaner air. By moving it away from the engine compartment, the air becomes colder. This will allow for some cooling process to take place.

Main Parts of Hyundai Genesis Air Intake Assembly You Can Upgrade

  • Air Filter
  • Mass Airflow Sensor
  • Throttle Body
  • Air Filter

The purpose of an air filter is to prevent dirt from entering the engine. A dirty filter forces the engine to work harder. Thus, leading to higher emissions and reduced engine power. As a result, you will experience a low fuel economy.

Upgrading the engine air filter is one way to improve performance. Aftermarket parts have designs that allow more airflow to the engine. They also perform better with more air flowing in. These parts have an advanced air filtration system for better air cleaning coverage. Thus, an air filter upgrade can give your engine an improved performance by as much as five horsepower. 

Mass Airflow Sensor (MAS)

The sensor is one of the crucial parts of an electronic fuel injection engine. It determines the amount of airflow entering the engine. Moreover, it passes critical data to the Engine Control Unit or ECU. The ECU needs accurate data to balance the air and fuel mixture. On the contrary, a faulty air flow sensor can lead to several issues. Problems like poor engine performance and hiccups will occur. You also will observe a hard start and engine stall.

Upgrading the mass airflow sensor can improve performance and fuel economy. Replacement performance sensors can read a high volume of airflow. Subsequently, this produces more accurate signals for the ECU to function more efficiently. An upgraded air filter that increases the volume of air may require an upgraded sensor, as well. The stock may not be able to accommodate the immense air volume. Thus, leading to false signals. So, if you want a smooth driving experience and better mileage, a mass airflow sensor upgrade will do.

Throttle Body

The throttle body controls engine airflow in response to the driver's movements of the accelerator pedal. Likewise, it regulates the proper mixture of air and fuel as speed changes. Aftermarket replacement parts with a bigger throttle body can deliver air at an improved rate versus the stock. 

Thus, if you're driving your Hyundai Genesis with upgraded larger throttles, you'll feel a smooth driving experience. You will also experience a quick acceleration response when you push the pedal. Likewise, upgrading to a larger air intake throttle can increase the torque. Thus, giving your engine extra horsepower.

A complete upgrade of the entire cold air intake assembly is the best choice. However, the cost can be expensive. But if you're tight on budget, you can upgrade just one part of the assembly and still enjoy a performance boost.

Horsepower and Air Intake

Upgrading your Hyundai Genesis is an eternal quest. You can improve the fuel efficiency or enhance the looks. You can also give your car a power boost. In terms of upgrades, installing an aftermarket Hyundai Genesis air intake is an excellent way to start. You can crank up extra power with this mod. If you're up for upgrades, it helps to know how air intake works. 

Does Air Intake Add Extra Horsepower?

Colder air carries more oxygen. The extra oxygen during combustion from the same amount of fuel makes a lot of difference in engine performance. The air intake is like an athlete in a sports game. One athlete is playing on a cold day. On the other hand, another athlete is playing on a humid and hot day. Between the two, the former performs better than the latter.

The engine performs similarly like an athlete. It performs better at low air temperatures. Likewise, replacement parts provide better cooling effects than the stock. Although, the stock performs satisfactorily in reducing air temperature for efficient combustion.  However, aftermarket parts have better air cooling and cleaning capabilities. They can also enhance the airflow to provide better air and fuel mixture for maximum combustion efficiency.

How Much Extra Horsepower Does It Add?

A suitable aftermarket replacement Hyundai Genesis Coupe 2.0 T cold air intake can give your car a boost in power. It can provide an extra output by as much as 5 to 20 horsepower. Good combustion also leads to better fuel economy. As a result, you'll enjoy additional mileage for your long drives.

The extra horsepower you'll get from this upgrade may not be enough to give you the best performance. However, it is already decent for a small investment to pay. The air intake is also easy to install. Just bolt it on, and you're off to go. It would be best if you were willing enough to compromise a little, to achieve optimum conditions on the road instead of the average. And this extra boost is just what you need for better driving performance.

Which Type of Air Intake is Best for your Car?

There are many different types of air intake in the marketplace. Which type of cold air intake should you buy for Hyundai Genesis Coupe 3.8? There are a couple of choices to make. We will discuss the important ones below:

OEM versus Replacement Parts

One direct comparison is choosing between OEM parts and aftermarket parts. OEM is short for Original Equipment Manufacturer. In the former, the same manufacturers of the stock produce the aftermarket parts. In the latter, various companies create components that are compatible with many brands.

Between the two, OEM parts will give you the same performance as the stock. On the other hand, aftermarket parts can either match the version of the original or improve it. However, some have a low quality that compromises performance.  

OEM parts are generally expensive. But, they are also harder to find. If you aim to improve power, then use high-performance aftermarket parts.

Types of Air Intakes

You'll come across many different types as you shop around. But we'll focus on the three major types with the best value for your upgrades.

  • RAM Air Intakes
  • Short Ram Air Intakes
  • Cold Air Intake System

 

Ram Air Intakes

This type has air filters mounted at the back of the engine. For added protection from dust, it has pre-filters. Also, it protects splash-ups from the road. The design has a longer tube that scoops up air at the front from high-pressure areas. Compared to the stock with a narrow opening, ram air systems have giant openings. It's usually twice as big as the stock for improved performance.

Short Ram Air Intakes

A short ram upgrade completely replaces the factory-installed filter box. Also, it replaces the air filter and the intake tubing. As a result, the air is warmer because of its shorter air tubes. 

However, the filter is still closer to the hot engine. But it tries to compensate by having a more oversized tubing with a larger diameter. Hence, it promotes smooth and free-flowing filtration. With its compact design, this is best for cars with cramped engine bay with tighter spaces.

Cold Air Intake Systems

Cold air intake assemblies are the best choice for aftermarket parts. It has a longer tube with the air filter fitted at the front. The air is colder compared to the rest since it is mounted away from the engine. There are heat shields in some cold air assemblies that cover the air filter for added protection. 

Which Intake Type is Best for Hyundai Genesis Coupe?

Cold air intake gives you more power. But it is expensive with a delicate installation process. On the other hand, short ram assemblies are more affordable and easier to install. But it has lesser power. If you're heavy on the throttle, a short ram is usually louder.
