Yup. Simplest and least costly would be an intake and an exhaust/muffler upgrade. Won't see huge gains but will see some nice differences for the price.

Then it really depends on the engine type, whether a turbo 2 liter or the 3.8 liter.

What kind of horsepower are you looking at, just simple and inexpensive mods or do you want to go all out? What Genesis platform are you building it off of? What do you want to achieve?

3.8 and 2.0L t . i am really doing a market test as i will be developing my own parts and test through our genesis race team. we are developing camshafts for the 3.8l and AEM is working on CCVT for all cams.

I am developing a full line of suspension parts as well.

Remind me to post our website, which should be launched in Jan.

Air+fuel equals power. IF I ever get the scratch to buy one of these suckers I will do everything to it that wont void the warranty. Intake, Exhaust, port (I think thats the right term) the intake manifold. Just make it breathe as best it can. Wont be huge power gains but its very safe, should not void warranty and make the car feel more responsive.

Would highly recommend you to get a new exhaust system hooked up to your car.

i think to gain the horse power that you want, you need to upgrade your exhaust and you must also find a high power engine to give you a full blast action of your car. try also to install an exhaust tips to the car.

Remove the engine control computer and install a new computer chip. In some cases, removal isn't necessary and simply plugging a programmer into the computer circuitry is all it takes. There are dozens of companies selling computer chips. Carefully research their claims. In a lot of cases, the gains are insignificant and not worth the investment. However, making engine improvements and then installing a new program chip can significantly improve horsepower.
