On a V8-powered Hyundai Genesis and the essence of SEMA

Illustration for article titled On a V8-powered Hyundai Genesis and the essence of SEMA

Garishly outfitted cars in brightly-colored, energy drink logo-festooned booths teeming with booth babes, brahs in flat bills and old men in auto-themed Hawaiian shirts inhaling a fragrance of waterless car wash and hepatitis. Yup, it's the Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) annual show in Las Vegas. The one time every year when the aftermarket industry gets to shoot a load of carbon fiber and neon into the faces of the Axe-sprayed assembled masses.

This year's star? Well if it's not the Jeep Brute Double Cab or the insanely-priced ICON Bronco, then it's this RMR-tuned Hyundai Genesis Coupe with the company's Tau V8 KY'd into the engine bay. It's a million times classier than some of the other tuned-up crazy-ass conceptual abortions littering the convention center floor, but that didn't stop teampenske3 from providing this — the likely typical response from the average SEMA attendee:

HEY BROS! WHAT WE BE DOIN HERE IN DA OPPOSITELOCK YO? DOODZ, YOU BEST BE CHECKIN OUT THIS SICK RIDE. ITS A GENESIS COUPE WIT DA 5.0 VEE 8 BROS!

Just wanna say that while NAWS has been given a bad rep and associated with things such as The Fast and the Furious, Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, "Veilside" RX-7s, neon green Eclipses, "bottles are for babies big boys get blown," and general lack of automotive intelligence, nitrous is a serious power adder.

I'm actually installing my 100 shot wet kit on my 350Z this weekend. All I have been hearing is

-"You're going to blow it up."

-"Better hope that tank doesnt explode."

-"Bottles are for babies, big boys get blown."

- Referring to my Dynotune kit as "NOS" brand. NOS is n acronym for Nitrous Oxide System.

This exemplifies that people do not understand nitrous oxide systems or how they work. Main point here, Nitrous oxide in the gaseous form that makes it to the combustion chamber IS NOT FLAMMABLE/COMBUSTABLE. N.O.T. FLAMMABLE/COMBUSTABLE. Also The people telling me "...big boys get blown" are N/A, or have a stock turbo (WRX), and thats just for starters. If you can't grasp that, then I'm not going to waste my time further detailing the intricacies of the system. Do some research and then talk about NAWS.

That being said, 'dat mo fuggin hunday is legit bro, sik wit it.
