The Hyundai Genesis Coupe offers enthusiasts many options. Enthusiasts can choose from seven different trim levels involving brake options, transmission choices, and wheel/tire selections. One of the main decisions however is the option of either the 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine or the 3.8-liter V6 powerplant. If forced-induction performance is what enthusiasts are after then the four-cylinder variety is the way to go. When AEM's performance engineers began research and development on the Genesis 2.0-liter engine, it was clear that there was plenty of performance yet to be unleashed.

The first phase of the tuning process for AEM was to develop a high-performance Cold Air Intake System. The prompt release of the 21-687C Cold Air Intake System with gunmetal gray finish and the 21-687P Cold Air Intake System with a polished aluminum finish fulfilled the initial step. These air intakes deliver an efficient design that produces a gain of seven horsepower at 6,500 RPM on the 2.0-liter engine. Moving forward, AEM designed a complementing aftermarket component to go with either of these cold air intakes. AEM is proud to introduce an all-new high-flow front mount Intercooler Kit (part Number 26-2100C) for the 2010, 2011 and 2012 Hyundai Genesis Coupe with the 2.0-liter turbocharged engine.

In designing the Front Mount Intercooler Kit for the Genesis, AEM strived to create an aftermarket performance component with OEM fitment and finish. In doing so, OEM routing paths were selected for the ducting of the intercooler system. Additionally, when possible OEM clearances were maintained to critical systems found in the engine compartment of the Coupe. The finished product is a complete front mount Intercooler Kit that is designed specifically to work with AEM Cold Air Intake System (Part Numbers 21-687C and 21-687P). The front mount Intercooler Kit part 26-2100C has a Gunmetal Gray finish.

The 26-2100C intercooler kit is a comprehensive bolt-on air cooling system, it contains everything that is necessary for installation down to the couplers, clamps, and brackets. At the heart of the system, a large bar-and-plate intercooler core was chosen to replace the factory Hyundai intercooler. The AEM intercooler core is capped on both ends with end tanks that are optimized to evenly distribute airflow across the core. All-new charge pipes are also included, which are constructed from high-quality 6063-grade mandrel-bent aluminum. On the right side of the vehicle, the charge pipe connects the turbo discharge to the intercooler. On the left side, the connection from the intercooler to the throttle body is made. As an added benefit, a mounting pad is incorporated onto the charge pipe just before the throttle body. This mounting pad can be utilized to easily plumb water/methanol injection systems into the air inlet tract. This is especially useful for high boost pressure applications and vehicles used in hot climates.

Testing of the AEM Front Mount Intercooler Kit for the Genesis Coupe has revealed valuable performance data. By replacing the Genesis' factory intercooler with the AEM Front Mount Intercooler Kit, the volume of the intercooler core is doubled. This massive increase in volume results into greatly improved heat transfer, which in turn significantly reduces inlet air temperatures.
