Does this mean the entire long blocks themselves can be swapped out? IE Evo 4b into a Gen? I know when Ford(lol) uses the word modular that means each of those motors can be a direct drop in to each car with a modular motor... If that made any sense lol.
Does anyone have the bore/stroke in MM for the Gen 4b? I didn't see it.

Yes a full evo long block swap is expensive, but parts seem to be more readily available. Has anyone tried/done this yet?
The blocks are modular design, but the GenCoupe has an open deck where as the Evo has a semi-closed deck. To achieve big #s, the GenCoupe would definately have to be sleeved.
The Evo & GenCoupe engines still may prove be a difficult swap, since modular design doesn't necessarily mean the motor mts will be in the exact same location. Also, one is RWD vs AWD for the other, which may complicate things. I'm not saying that these factors will make a difference, only that they could.
Here are the bore & stroke for both Hyundai engines:
86mm bore, 86mm stroke for the 2.0t
96mm bore, 87mm stroke for the V6
I haven't seen or heard of a GenCoupe w/an Evo engine swap as of yet. But to be honest, for that kind of money, block sleeving could be done to accompany the mods to get this engine into the heavy hitter category.
But if you are considering that kind of power, the Lambda RS should be your engine of choice, as Rhys Millen has proven that the 3.8L can easily pump out 500whp & tq on factory internals....
