label me not impressed? how long has this car been out? and they are just NOW getting those kind of numbers? with enough money, you can make ridiculous horsepower out of about anything... I mean they've gotten 800+whp out of the stock block of a 2.0L ecotec and GM really just got serious about 4-cylinders in the mid-2000s...

I mean I guess its good they started with around 200whp and made something of it but I would have thought with enough boost and some forged internals, it'd be well over 600whp... and those torque numbers state it all: dyno queen, lol

as one can tell, i'm just not a fan of the Korean cars... as far as a new crowd coming up being into them, I survived the Honda fad of the late 90s/early 2000s and at least they had some 400+whp builds in sub-2500 lb cars... this little fad looks like its heading for disaster before the game even starts, lol

The motor is pretty much the 4B11 which is the same motor in the Evo X's. To my knowledge, the Evo X's don't have a lot of luck when shooting for high HP either. Most of the issues with that car, though, lies in the transmission going out at high HP numbers.

You also have to think that this is Hyundai's FIRST "sports car". (or sport compact, however you want to phrase it) It's definitely not a bad start and can only improve from here.

Meh, I was expecting more. That curve doesn't look to great either from that small bit I can see. Probably still a pretty fun car but hard to believe sub-600 is the bar to beat.

World's highest HP Evo X that I can find is 806whp.

AMS's Evo X only made 782hp and ran a 10.1 1/4mile.

Yeah the power band looks pretty harsh. Bet at 3000 rpm it will put your head in the seat.

how many people in this tread have a car that makes a legitimate 500hp?
hard to laugh at a hp number that high if your not making at least that yourself......

but I made more torque with an ecotec turbo on the stock turbo

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aBTLH...gWCATAN707m9fw

367ft-lbs to be exact, and making it at 3200rpm... sure only 331whp, but still... not even in the top 1000 of ecotecs, lol

and the fact it is so close to the World I4 found in the Evo is why i'm shocked by the numbers.. i'm not knocking the car, 580+whp is a ridiculous amount of whp for a street car, but its just shocking that number sets the bar as highest whp
