PLUS, if I need more power, the supercharger should be out and that will get me to an even higher level with a more stout motor than the 2.0 unless you drop multi thousands into the 2.0 to still come up with a lower output. The 2.0 is not seeming to be the "tuner car" that was hyped by Hyundai.

At this point, unless Hyundai steps it up and adds forged internals (they should have anyway) then to me the 2.0 has been more than a little disappointing. No sense to buy a cheaper car, only to have to spend big to get it back up to par with more costly cars. I can buy a BUILT engine for any car, why choose a brand new platform. Just buy the better car to begin with IMO.

Sorry if this is a little negative sounding, the GC is still a great sporty option, they seem to have over promised and underdelivered, cheapest 300 hp car etc.. Suspension, engine, clutch, etc. Just too much to have to upgrade IMO.
i absolutely agree with you.

Even the 2.0T is the most powerful car I've had over the long term, which means, I'm fine as is. For the moment at least, this is my ONLY car, which means it's got to be a winter car too. SO, the basics (I/E, tune, etc) and 250-280hp is plenty for me right now. When I've got the room, and the money, to have a toy car, that may change, but by then, I'll be able to afford to have the car off the road for a week or two at a time to DO the internals, and I don't have to run it in the winter, either. Right now, I don't have the money, time, or space.

And really, 280ish HP is not bad. We're just kinda spoiled with all the mega-horsepower cars that've been coming out in the last seven years or so. It's not long ago that a 'Vette didn't have the HP we have stock from the 2.0T.
Well due to lack of availability for a 2.0t GT, I ended up going with the V6 after all.
It's a very powerful engine and I don't see needed much more than that for a few years now.
Less money on mods, means more money to pay this thing off faster. :P

Owned a 2.0T track edition since may. My original plan was to go for a 4 cylinder engine just cuz of the gas mileage and cuz i have always loved the I4 engine than the V-6. more room to work with.
