Thanks for the link.I don't know to be honest. This is the newer smart stream engine and a first for Hyundai, so it remains to be seen. There's nothing like it on the market to compare with.
It's dual port injection, which is a plus over the normal GDI engine. It will definately keep the intake valves clean and eliminate the problems inherent in the GDI and carbon deposits.SmartstreamThe Ever-evolving World of Powertrain A car’s performance is said to be defined by its movement—run fast, run strong.

There's a bit of reading here but is very informative with regards to the engine technology.
And were the problems you read about concerning the N in a standard car or a tuned one?How about the materials used for longevity of the engine? i have seen problems on the 2.0 TGDi of the i30 N wich the pistons wear out too quickly because the too reduced hight of it, is the 1.6 engine have the same problems? Does anything i wrote have any sense or am just saying nonsense?
Any 1.6 Smartstream engine according to Hyundai. I don't know about what you may or may not have read. Dual Port injection has two sets of injectors as shown in the illustration. As I understand it, the G1 smartstream same 1.6 short blocks which are utilized in all production engines NA or Turbocharged. I imagine it simply the internals that are different.Thanks for your reply, R Veloster N.
On reading the article again, the question is (for me) whether the1.6 engine in " *Models with DPFI: Smartstream G1.0 / G1.2 / 1.6 " is the same as what is referred to as the
"G1.6 T-GDi" in the article.
I seem to have read a few months ago (but can't locate that article now) that the fuel injectors in the G1.6 T-GDi engine have been slightly re-positioned so that they are now closer to the intake valves. From memory, the injection of fuel sprays slightly over the intake valves and the entire intake valve (upper) surfaces now get this spray when the valve spins as it is opening and shutting....but I could be imagining reading this!
If you have any further mention of DPFI being in this engine, I would love to read it!
In addition to the 1.6L turbo, the Smartstream collective includes a naturally aspirated 2.5L 4-cyl. (code name G4K) in the new Sonata and a naturally aspirated 1.6L 4-cyl. with dual-port fuel injection in the Accent subcompact.
