Yes, the 2.0L turbocharged engine used in the Genesis Coupe is the same engine used in the Forte and Forte Koup EX models.Are they indeed the SAME theta engine?
I just got done reading that LITERALLY like 5 min ago, came to post it hahaha,.Yes, the 2.0L turbocharged engine used in the Genesis Coupe is the same engine used in the Forte and Forte Koup EX models.

I am just glad the bottom end is pretty much the same, which means the TK.com kit will safely make more power, as we won;t have to worry about nitrous setups either, properly tuned of course.It's not exactly the same engine. The 2.0 in the Forte only has variable valve timing on the intake. The engine in the Genesis Coupe has variable timing on both the intake and exhaust valves. I remember reading about this on some Singapore based forum where tuners were looking to mod the engine. It was also mentioned as well on the TV show Motoring when they were reviewing the Forte and Koup. Basically our stock 2.0 engines produce 156 hp. With CVVT added to the exhaust valve, hp goes to 166 plus gives a broader power band. The turbo in the Genesis Coupe does the rest.
they won;t have the same factory exhaust manifold.Is the exhaust mani similar in Gen coupe and Forte?!?!? The engine is mount differently in both car so I suspect they will be quite different!
most companys dont change little things to keep cost down. i assume that the manifold should bolt on.... why make more part #'s if u can share parts keeps cost down. the most simple thing to do is compair exhaust gaskets to see if they line up on hell even have the same part number.
most stock turbo manifolds are a log style so you would have to make a custom down pipe to fit it.
i seen that a few companys make forged piston sets and rod for it too
it's probably the same shape, but a different material to handle the higher temps.Forte 2.0 exhaust gasket part number# 28521-25020 $15.07
genesis 2.0t exhaust gasket part number# 28521-2c400 $19.92
^^ i almost crapped when i got the 2nd part # untill she said ( C ), lol
