Hi everyone :)

I'm Dr Tweak, of Phoenix Tuning ( Phoenix Tuning Home: We specialize in Toyota Engine Swaps & Wiring Harness Conversions - located in Savannah, GA ) and I just wanted to drop in to introduce myself.

Over the past several years we have busy doing performance work and engine swaps on Toyota cars and trucks, which you can see if you check out our website. In recent years though, Toyota has saddened me with their lack of any decent performance platforms or engines.

When I saw the Genesis prototype last year it really piqued my interest. Then when the information about the turbo engine came out, that really caught my attention. The plan aren't set in stone, but I'm seriously thinking about picking up a Coupe as soon as they come out, and working on some upgrades for us.

Some things that come to mind that I would do right away:

- Stainless steel mandrel bent tig-welded exhaust
- Downpipe
- High-density core intercooler upgrade
- True cold-air intake
- Stainless steel braided hoses and lines for everything
- Bolt-on turbo upgrade
- Bolt-on turbo and manifold upgrade
- Whatever else you guys would like to see

Well that's about it, if anyone has any questions feel free to reply to this thread, PM, or email me at [email protected] , I'm looking forward to some exciting times ahead! :)

Welcome to the forum Dr Tweak. Yea, seems like you love the toyota sleepers. Im getting rid of my 5 speed manual v6 camry, due to the lack of performance, and the upgrades. What type of bolt on turbo? We do think the engine is not that strong as we all mentioned. But someone will find out the max hp. But otherwise, sounds like you have a idea, of what you want you want to do with the car... Good luck, we are here to help what we no, just hope you can do the same for us..
I wish I had one right now lol. This is just a picture from korea. I see that you are getting the 2.0 turbo model. Be sure to check out the specific model. Yea I would think the gt28 is a good steeping stone. I assuming most people are going for the gt35r though. I am planning a t3/t4 hybrid setup, as soon as some internals, and a racing block. Hopefully by then we all can find out the transmission and axle limits.

· 2.0T
· 2.0T Premium
· 2.0T Track (6-speed manual transmission only)
· 2.0T R-Spec (late availability, 6-speed manual transmission only)
Wow. Their is not that much room in the engine bay lol. U guess you got to do some cutting the firewall, new rear end, etc. That would be a good project for you. I wonder if the v6 manual tranny will mount to the v8 engine? I think this would be wiring nightmare..
Yea, a supercharged v8, cylinder deactivation, 27mpg.. You can't go wrong with that. Especially the sema genesis sedan...The genesis 2.0t with 210 or 223 hp gets 30mpg. And the Genesis Sedan 460hp and 27mpg, thats a trip hahaha.
