My name is Jeremy. Hi, Hello. I was searching around for more information on the coupe this evening, and came across this site on a few videos on streetfire.net actually.

A little bit about myself i guess is in order. I am 24yrs, will be 25 in Feb. Been in the US army for just over 7 yrs now (national guard but lol whatever) Was deployed to Iraq for 11.5months during 2007 and actually leaving Jan 2nd for a 2nd tour for roughly the same amount of time.

My car background. I purchased my 1st car when i was 16, '95 mazda mx3, trans blew after a timing belt job, so i traded it in and bought a '03 brand new hyundai tibuon gt (auto). Ended up slowly modifying it rear sway bar, springs, wheels/tires, tinted windows, aem cai, single exiting exhaust, header, free mods to include headlights bezels painted, sub rewire. I had plans on going s/c but decided to trade it in for a '96 automatic eclipse gsx. Which started off as a bad choice, with all the issues i came across from the crap dealership i bought it from. Final outcome of that car is, currently sitting in my driveway (for the past 2yrs now as a shell). Last setup ran on the car was ported 14B @20psi will all supporting mods, tuned with safc and data logger. Then after returning from Iraq this past Feb 2008, i purchased a '96 honda civic 5speed coupe, sohc nonvtec. Car was extremely clean though. Custom green paint job 99-00 front end conversion, front lip, mirrors. 1st on order for the coupe was Omni full coilover setup, LCAs, front & rear camber kits, wheels/tires. Got bored with how slow the car was and sold it about 2months later. Next night went and purchased a '91 Talon Awd 5speed. Car basically took a crap on the way home (ebay 16g on car blew). Car was then torn apart and i found out it was half ass built. Made some phone calls to a few shops (sorry jrod :groupbow: buschur wasn't one of them), Forced Performance, Jnztuning were a huge help. Car was built around the stock 2.0l. Mods which included FPhta88 turbo, FP 3" o2 housing, 3" turboback, Tial 44mm wg, Fp manifold, Fp 4" intake pipe, Dsmlink tuning software, eprom ecu, stock trans, ACT 2600 6puck, JMfab smim, gmaf-t, SBR street FMIC setup (short route piping). Ran the car daily on 25psi (weekend before i was to dyno the car on pump & race (q16) gas the cheap Filter i installed as a quick fix came apart and destroyed the hta88 turbo. I assume car was making around 400whp But :dunno:.

I have actually been trying to decide whether to purchase an Evo X or the Genesis Coupe during this tour in iraq as a Daily driver (we all know that won't last, so i'm also searching for a clean 4DR civic to DD). Now that i have learned the 4b11 is also in the genesis the decision is even harder to make. I always loved the agruement against owning a performance hyundai but that just makes me want to push the car more and spend more cash to prove people wrong.

Thanks for your time,

Jeremy

Hey Jeremy welcome to the forums. Sounds like you know your way around cars and for the most part know what you want. If you want to go for something new definately check out the Genesis Coupe. By the time you get back the R-Spec version should be available which deletes some of the options of the other cars like push start, sunroof, leather seats, and should weigh less than the other version.

Stay safe in Iraq and look forward to seeing post on the forums.

Yeah for the most part, not really technical, but i do know what it takes to make a car move a little bit more, especially coming from a DSM background. Look at the Rspec version list on the forums here, def. seems even more promising might have to hold off to get that version instead.

Thanks for the warm welcome.

Thanks Tufast. Now i just gotta decide on exterior color.
Gray's the bomb & that dark blue looks great. But, I would check the color chart 1st to make sure the color you like is available on the model you like. I'm going for red, simply because it will match the Brembos & seat inserts. Not to mention, how often does red really look good on a car. This is one of those times.:jump:

Yeah I'm thinking Black, most all my cars have been black except for 2 (my mx3 in high school and my '91 talon). We shall see still got some time.
My brother is getting black too. He's also getting his way B4 me, so I'll be jealous. He's getting the 6cyl track, I think. Well, I let him drive my bimmer sometimes & we're close, so I imagine he'll let me drive his GenCoupe some until I get mine. Maybe we can just swap at times. Anyways, my bimmer's black, so I want something different.

Well the time has come, just got home from spending time with just about all my friends from fredericksburg area for new years, since the GF stayed home and did not feel like joining me.. anyways. Just got home at 6am have to finish up the packing of military SHIT lol and then try and get my rental agreement notarized. Once that all is done wait until the GF gets off and decide if we are going to head to NC tonight or tomorrow morning. I don't have to report now until 0800 saturday morning i think, it wasn't really clear as i was supposed to get a phone call from some dipshit SGT down there.

Who probably doesn't like me very much after our last phone call.
