Beyond Redline has taken apart the 2.0T motor used in the Genesis Coupe with some nice pictures. As expected, the block is sourced from the 4B11, the motor used in the new Lancer Ralliart (not to be confused with the 4B11T used in the Lancer Evolution X). It looks like it has a beefy crank and stout rods with a 86mm\86mm stroke and bore, making it a square motor which is great for high revving madness. Beyond Redline expects 400whp at around 8000 RPM an easy goal with supporting mods but an otherwise stock block. With piston oil squirters it also looks like it will be very tunable to produce plenty of power. One disappointment is that it is an open deck block. High boost can possibly warp the cylinders into ovals, so for high power applications the block may need some reinforcement called block guards to reinforce the cylinder walls. The tradeoff is better engine cooling and the possibility to tune the engine more aggressively with less boost to make more power. Compare this to the 4B11T, which has a semi-closed deck with supports all around the cylinder. More pictures after the jump, or click here to see the thread on GenCoupe with all the details.
Hi guys. The insides of this motor look pretty promising. Other than the rods and pistons, the rest looks decently strong. I do have to sonic test the walls, and may go so far as to machine out a sleeve just to see what type and how thick of material was used. Either way being that it is a factory turbo motor, it has to be stronger than a honda block. In stock form I would expect that this wouuld hold around 400 whp, but only time will tell.
