Newbi here.

Hey guys. I currently have had my 2010 kia soul burner model since october 2009. I am bored of the darn toast box and i am currently in search of my genesis. I am trying to figure out what to get, I know I want the premium / the grand touring with leather and sunroof. I am not sure though what to get as in the 2.0T or the 3.8. I test drove a 2010 3.8 touring / gt I guess model and I just absolutely fell in love with it. Expect, then I was only @ my job for 1 month. I make killer coin and I hope when I return I am qualified as I am on my 3rd month now.

Sorry about blah blah above. I am just excited about this car. I never had a rwd before and I know I want the manual. I also want boost. However, I think if I get the 3.8 and drop about another 6 plusg and do a twin / single turbo on the 3.8 That should give me what I want. Its a wonderful car to drive. I'll definatly take another one out for a test drive.

Let me know with your comments and thoughts about the 2.0T and the 3.8 and about boosting the 3.8.I am so in love with this car. My Kia Soul " burner " can go to the used car lot LOL

If anyone is interested the car has a few custom kicks to it, so your gf, mom, grandparents what ever let me know. The price of the burner is very fair as I paid almost 29g taxes in. ( I could have had a genesis LOL )

Peace out

Devon.

Well im talking to my buddy who works for Tuner Works in Calgary. he says the 3.8 is good but the 2.0t has the evo black and can take a lot of shit. Also is more fun with the turbo or better / easier up grades. Not sure what u suggest wait or get used? I just don't like to loose 10g after buying a new car.

Welcome aboard. If you are heavy into modding & don't mind jeopardizing parts of warranty, then 2.0t. If you want power out of the box & retain all of your warranty with minimal modding, 3.8L is the way to go.

BTW.... Even though the GenCoupe 2.0t & Evo share the same architecture design regarding the block, they are far from the same with the most important differences being the Evo block has forged internals with a semi-closed deck. The GenCoupe on the other hand has cast internals with an open deck. In other words, anything over 300whp may be a somewhat of a gamble on the GenCoupe, although many have made upwards of 400whp with a good tune. However it seems that the con rods are the weakest point & there is a fair amount of variance with some snapping at much lower power levels than others. As you probably already know, the Evo block in stock form usually can hit 500whp w/o issues.

Yes its a very hard choice. If I got the 3.8 I'd just do a few tunes and a single turbo with under 10 psi boost. Keep it nice and clean and put a killer front bumper and some carbon fiber accents on it. I got a few kits picked out and such. But ya my buddy says 2.0t is the fun one. but I think the 3.8 can be fun as well with a single turbo

The good news is the 3.8L is kinda designed for FI incorporating oil squiters on the bottom of the pistons for cooling purposes.
