GT Channel: Mine’s Boss Niikura-san on New Generation of Tuning Parts and Mine’s SpecV

May 5th, 2009

GT Channel have had a long friendship with Mine’s and Niikura-san certainly seems to love their cameras. They recently hit up the Mine’s HQ in Yokosuka, Japan to check out what the Mine’s guys have in the pipeline and what their plans are for the new Nissan GT-R SpecV.

As discussed in the video, probably some of the most exciting news which we have touched on previously, is that Mine’s are indeed developing a full engine upgrade called the Mine’s Super Complete Engine. We’re now aware that Mine’s will be shooting for about 600ps peak power but that, in the Mine’s tradition, the power will be delivered very early and in a very responsive manner.

Mine’s have always been about maximum response at modest power levels. That was powerfully evident in the Mine’s R34 GT-R of days gone by. Now by utilizing Mahle forged pistons and titanium I-beam conrods they plan to lighten and strengthen the VR38’s internals to be stronger and more free revving. They’re shaving off more than 300g per cylinder with just these mods.

The second video (after the jump) goes into great detail on the mine’s Super Big Throttle Body coming soon also.

Thanks to Taro from GT Channel for the heads up!

    It’s going to be crazy like their R34!!!

    Mine’s is really one of the best tuners for Nissan in the world

    The name Mine’s is as unique as the GTR. The only company to set so many records and keeping the car mostly stock. Lightly tuned but deadly performance
