Up the HP Ante on Your 2010 Hyundai Genesis Coupe 2.0L with AEM’s Cold Air Intake


The Hyundai Genesis Coupe was released as a direct competitor to sports cars such as the Infiniti G37 and Nissan 370Z. With styling cues derived from both challengers, the Hyundai comes out of the gates strong in the appearance segment. The Genesis Coupe also features high-quality components such as Brembo performance brakes, a limited-slip differential and a Mitsubishi TD04H turbocharger. It is in the power department however that the Genesis Coupe lacks amongst its counterparts. Weighing in at a hefty 3,294 Lbs., the 2.0-liter turbocharged engine only musters up 210 horsepower. In class of vehicles that generate right around 300 horsepower, the Genesis falls a few ponies short

Where the Genesis Coupe excels however is in its price tag and in its tuner-friendly design. The 2010 Hyundai Genesis Coupe with the 2.0-liter turbocharged engine has a starting MSRP of just $22k. The comparatively inexpensive price tag combined with support from the aftermarket community brings the Genesis Coupe to the forefront for performance enthusiasts.

Since the introduction of the Genesis Coupe, AEM has been working on several performance components for the 2.0-liter turbo engine. To increase the airflow to the turbocharged engine, AEM has proudly released a Cold Air Intake System for the 2010 Hyundai Genesis Coupe with the 2.0-liter engine (Part Number 21-687C).

The 21-687C cold air intake system connects directly to the Genesis’ TD04H turbo compressor inlet. From the turbocharger, the intake inlet tube is directed to the passenger side wheel well. In order to make a clear path to the passenger side wheel well, AEM engineers had to redesign the vehicle’s windshield washer tank. To this end, the AEM cold air intake for the Genesis (21-687C) includes a high-quality windshield washer tank to replace the factory unit. With the AEM washer tank in place, the mandrel-bent aluminum inlet tube is routed to the passenger wheel well and is capped by a DRYFLOW performance air filter (Part Number 21-2047DK). The 21-2047DK DRYFLOW performance air filter features an inlet diameter of 3.5-inches (89mm) and a height of 7-inches (178mm). The oil-free DRYFLOW technology is extremely durable and easy to clean.

With its efficient design, the 21-687C air intake system is able to produce a maximum gain of seven horsepower at 6,500 RPM on the 2.0-liter engine. By allowing the turbocharger to take in more airflow, peak power is also improved with the addition of the AEM cold air intake. This cold air intake system is simple to install using basic tools.
