Mike Carducci Tuner Battlegrounds 1

Owner: Mike Carducci
Location: Thornwood, NY
Vehicle: 2010 Hyundai Genesis Coupe 2.0T
Horsepower: 330

This Genesis Coupe was built to set it apart from the crowd and constantly keep it ahead of the game. Mike always had a passion for Hyundai's and felt it was time to take modding to a new level with this car. Most of the installs were done by him or with the help of a friend who is a mechanic.  When there was a job that he wasn't comfortable doing or qualified for, he turned to Dream Toyz Auto Customs in Ossining, NY. They did all of the ICE/electronics and major interior work.  Dream Toyz is one of the most reputable shops in his area, so he knew his prized Gen Coupe would be in good hands. The paint was done by Sarona Design in NY, and he was pleased that they allowed me into their shop to help with the preparation process before the car was sprayed. 

In short, he did what he was qualified to do and left the rest to the pros. This way, he knew there would be a personal touch to building my car and everything else would be done the right way. He's proud to say there was no cutting corners.
