The rollers were a careful consideration and Hyundai made sure the wheel wells could accommodate some oversized stock. A set of TSW Londrina wheels sized in 20x8.5-inches up front and a healthy 20x10 rear were installed. The wheels were wrapped in the venerable Falken FK452 meats measuring 245/30R20 with a 275/30R20 on the drive wheels. The correct stand was dialed-in with K-Sport Kontrol coilovers and the chassis was cinched up with GT Spec strut bars.

Then the Injen crew turned to the interior treatment to provide a comfortable ride for the new veteran. The stock seats were pulled in favor of the Aero Design adjustable racing buckets. The rear deck was reskinned and etched with the Injen logo before the audio install commenced. A custom twin subwoofer enclosure was built to house a pair of Memphis Audio 10-inch Power Reference subwoofers. The subs are powered by a pair of 1000.1 Power Reference amps for a bass line that pounds hard. The factory Infinity speakers were up to the task of handling the juice delivered by a Memphis Audio 200.4 amp.

Meekins’ Genesis Coupe isn’t going to bag horsepower records or a Best of Show at the next Spo-Com show but it is a tight everyday driver. On top of that, it was one of the coolest stories we had heard this year and quite and honor for someone who has served his country. The car that Injen built gave Meekins a sense that the people back home care about the sacrifice he made for his country and they appreciate the freedom it affords. Remember that when you’re enjoying your ride, and when it comes time for the next upgrade, that Injen has done their part.
