It's sooo cool being around & knowing of this car from it's conception. Then seeing the unveiling of the concept & following the info trail. Then joining forums B4 most had any clue about the vehicle & were just learning of it's bigger brother the sedan. Actually becoming fully involved in one of the forums & searching out info day & night. Now I'll be around as the very 1st of people on this continent take possession & start making the cars their own in little or major ways.

Which engine will you now get?

Which engine will you now get now that we're starting to see the power limitations (~350whp) on the stock 2.0 turbo engine? Did you change your mind because of seeing the apparent stock limitations of the 2.0t engine?

I've been contemplating what motors would be awesome in this car ever since I can remember. I think that a SR20, true 4B11T, or Ecotec turbo would do nicely. Even a 4G63 would be awesome and easy to source parts for. I personally intend to hang on to the car for a long time and I'm sure a new motor will be necessary, I just hope not right now!

Excellent poll, thanks for posting.
I voted for the 2.0t still because I'm in it to win it. If I hadn't already made up my mind to go all the way, I would definately switch back to the 3.8L. But, since my plans already included internals, not that big of a deal. Just disappointed my "stage1" will not include the Buschur upgrade on the stock turbo. Just too much of a gamble, so will have to wait until I do the internals. Therefore my "stage1" will only be looking like about 280whp (I/E, FMIC, tune, etc, etc). That should still be pretty good after I add all the CF parts dropping the weight some more. Then I figure it will be putting me in the mid 13s in the 1/4.

I wouldn't blame those looking for more than 300whp to go with the 3.8L since the internals will hold up much better, unless you are willing to tear this thing apart & throw down some serious cash. I'm beginning to see why Rhys recommended I should go with the V/6...LoL

I'm still going with the 2.0t.
there's a few reasons for this, not the least of which is the fact that the base v6 costs $1000 more than a 2.0t GT in Canada.

I also feel that since i've a) never owed a rwd car before, b) never owned a car with 200+ hp, and c) i've never owned a performance oriented car before, I will be happy with the power out of the box for now. Long term, i think 320, 330whp will be plenty for me. The torque will be much higher than a stock 3.8 and thats all i'm really looking for.
It after a few years, I have the desire, and the means to do so, I might try to go for a full rebuild and shoot for 400+whp. But right now, i don't have the means, nor the need to do something that drastic.
If i really wanted a 400hp car, i'd have gone with Camaro as a base. I'm much happier going with a Genesis.

2.0T is my choice of weapon. Though V6 is not maybe even coming to Europe but that doesn't matter because I still want turbo. Here in Finland we have stupid laws so we can't put turbos so easily to every car that does not have it already, massive paper work and lots of money needed if doing so. In our neighbour land Sweden you can drive legally pretty much with everything...I saw even drag racing car with racing slick going middle of city there.

After averaging well below 20MPG combined in the 2.0T, I would get the V6 if I had to chose again.

Wow, seriously? You must drive hard or live in a traffic heavy city. I average roughly 26-28 MPG with my 2.0T... and that's gunning it every once in a while.
