September 2013: Forced Induction Special
The Cover Car
Expertly Cultivated: 1972 Nissan Skyline GT2000
For some reason, the best tuners are often the ones that were purchased with little to no planning in mind. Case in point, Jacob Reining’s Hyundai Genesis 2.0T Track Edition is part of a long lineage of cars. His dad used to tell him stories about his collection of brute American muscle cars, including a 1964 ½ Ford Mustang and ’70 Chevelle SS, which spurred Reining’s interest as a young kid.
The Gencoupe you see gracing these pages started from modest beginnings, as Reining originally planned little more than a wheel and suspension upgrade, and maybe a few stereo components. After some good fortune, he went ahead and started building the ultimate RWD Turbo.

But don’t take our word for it; check it out in her interview below.
Shopping can be overwhelming at times. Over the past several issues we have discussed several topics including OEM integration, head units, subwoofers, amplifiers and component speakers.
