If done right that would be a quick little hotrod.

Wel, It looked very professional- there are some beautiful custom pieces in the engine bay that can't be seen in the picture. The interior is as nice as the exterior. Sounded REAL good too.

Power-to-weight must be pretty high too. I'll bet this thing probably keeps up with the Shelbys, Corvettes, and Challengers in the area too. Obviously this thing is a sleeper even though it is painted Arrest Me Red.

Now why would he do that when Hyundai has a 5.0 for the Genesis that makes more power than the car can handle?

LS motors are easier to find than a Hyundai 5.0 in a Genesis?

Base price for a 2018 Genesis G80 with a 3.8 V6 - $41750 starting point

Base price for a 2018 Genesis G80 with a 5.0 V8 8-speed - $57,000 starting point.

My guess its cheaper to fab up an LS motor too?
