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.
