the engine 'specs' have been around a long time. No idea what turbo it comes with as manufacturers usually never broadcast the information on turbo model. 90% of the population wouldn't care or understand what they mean by a 13B-GK-R24c or w/e.

Based on the engine size and what they did with the Gencoupe, I would expect something similar, possibly a bit smaller.

That said, a 16G upgrade to the VTurbo once tuning is easy to come by should be an AMAZING upgrade for the car.

I ran the big 16G turbo on my Eclipse back and the day and the difference was amazing! Better spool up time and it pulled hard throughout the entire RPM band.

what makes it interesting is typically hyundai and other manufacturers use mitsu or garrett turbos.

borg turbos are great just curious as to why the switch.

Borg turbos are typically almost custom applications. They don't really do bulk like garret does, but when they do bulk production its for higher-end cars. They produce the OEM turbos for Porsche, BMW and Audi. John Deere and Cat's also come with BW turbos.

Yeah, it's a badass brand, and i'm pumped to see it.

Yes, as far as I know they have not released any numbers for premium fuel.

I see... Weird as to why they haven't released the real #s..
Then again cheaper insurance at the end of the day lol..

The thought of the injectors being max out on 93oct have crossed my mind too..
