Im Kevin, 32, married, no kids yet. I live about 5 minutes St Louis but slightly north in Alton IL. I do car audio for a living, MECP certified, currently with best buy. I love doing custom work, but I hate commission, so Ive been doing the hourly gig with BB for about 6 years. I was active duty Marine Corps from 98-02, where I was stationed in San Diego most of the time.
Well, I am currently selling my 2010 R-Spec Genesis, to pick up a new Turbo Sonata, looking around more to see whats out there for it. Ive been a big member of the Genesis board for awhile, even run a St Louis GenCoupe group on facebook. Ive done a 19t, Haltech ECU, TONS of ad ons, about 10 grand worth, love the car, but its time to move on to a big family sedan. So if you have a 2.0t Sonata, and looking for a Genesis, hit me up. lol
Ive had a ton of cars and bikes over the years, this would be number 24 lol.
2010 R Spec Genesis over 300whp/330wtq on normal boost. Best dyno was 320whp with 384wtq
