because you would need to have a custom built transmission that could be monitored by the genesis ecu, unless you get lucky and it matches up to an existing tib tranny.
Just turbo the I4, less money, same ability, there is truly no reason to drop in, essentially, the same motor just for a turbo when you can turbo the existing engine, build the block, new pistons, and new transmission for the same cost and put out more power. But then you run into the same problem that, being a fwd car, you reach a point where more power is just bragging rights and becomes useless since you can't keep traction with that power.
This has been talked before. YES! There is a kit and it cost 8k, shipped from korea. 280hp and so far the motor is to hold 350hp. Not worth it, build your own forged motor and boost the sucker 600whp for that cost.
im sure this can be done, but these engines are not the same if im not mistaken... this new one has had the help of chrystler and mitusubishi. i mean to do this would be a lot of money and time like mentioned. you would have to do a whole complete syste. new motor (obviously), but you will spend a lot trying to make it fit, trans, ecu, driveline everything, way to much money. just turbo yours, or buy a damned genisis, less money in the end.
Haha yeah... I never had any plan on doing this. I was just wondering if it could be done, and the difficulty if it could. Just fueling my curiosity, that's all. I do plan on putting a turbo on my V6 eventually.
