Power House Amuse R1000 90mm Race Spec STTI Mid Pipe for GT-R

July 31st, 2010

When Power House Amuse launched their massive 90mm titanium exhaust system recently it got a lot of us thinking about just how best to move exhaust gas through this massive system with a relatively puny looking 80mm mid pipe. Little did we know they had this card up their sleeve the whole time.

The new exhaust components are known as “R1000 GT-RR SPL STTI” and are produced by Amuse in Japan using their proprietary STTI (super tough titanium/Ti) material. This Y pipe which was developed in collaboration between GT-RR.COM and Amuse takes the successful design of Amuse’s prior R1000 No. 2 Y Pipes and increases the size 10mm larger to maximize power in higher boost GT-R applications. As a result this new racing system has twin 80mm pipes transitioning into 90mm.

Each order is painstakingly produced by hand in Japan using nothing but 100% titanium. The usual details that Amuse are world famous for can be seen here; including: hollow titanium hangers, superbly controlled heat-treating, and not only exterior polished welds, but deburred and polished interior welds for reduced turbulence.

According to the guys at GT-RR who have fitted up the first one to their own car, the Amuse 90mm mid pipe offers a aggresive exhaust note without any noticeable drone inside. While the race version shown here does not come with any catalytic converters, these may be optioned and you should contact the guys at GT-RR for more info there…

Power House Amuse and GT-RR Launch R1000 Titanium Exhaust

June 22nd, 2010

Powerhouse Amuse Japan has developed a special exhaust using GT-RR’s collaborative specifications for worldwide market sales. The new exhaust is known as the “R1000 GT-RR SPL STTI” and is produced by Amuse in Japan using their proprietary STTI (super tough titanium/Ti) material. The exhaust which was developed in collaboration between GT-RR.COM and Amuse takes the successful design of Amuse’s prior R1 Titan Extra STTI model and increases the size from 80mm to 90mm to maximize power in higher boost GT-R applications. Additionally, after considering GT-RR’s research, adjustments to sound tuning were made and the result is a more prominent supercar appropriate tone.

The design utilizes Amuse’s highly effective twin horizontal resonators for sound control but does not use any other resonators on the piping. As a result of the new design, the R1000 GT-RR SPL STTI exhaust yielded surprising results during Amuse Japan’s dyno test. After repeated testing, the new special exhaust has produced 21 horsepower more than the previous Amuse exhaust system on the very same GT-R.

TAS09: Power House Amuse R35 Phantom Still a Crowd Favourite

January 14th, 2009

Not much has changed on the Power House Amuse Nissan GT-R in terms of appearance but it’s most likely because they got the formula so perfect first time around. Still a huge crowd drawer at Tokyo Auto Salon 2009, it was good to see how timeless the late Hideki Tanabe-san’s design was and that it most certainly still holds it’s own in the flesh and around a race track against most newcomers.

Featuring the full Power House Amuse Exhaust including the R1-Titan Extra STTi muffler, the R1000-No1 turbine outlets and the R1000-No2 straight RS STTi midpipes. Combined with the Hi-Tech ROM ECU and a HKS EVC5 to control boost and it’s good for 611ps.

Aero is also handled by original Amuse products, the Amuse front under diffuser and the Amuse carbon rear wing offer improved downforce allowing for higher cornering speeds.

Suspension is adjustable via the Power House Amuse R1 Adjusting Kit which allows the standard Bilstein Damptronic dampers to take aftermarket springs and have an adjustable ride height. Spring rates chosen are 20kg/mm front and 12kg/mm rear.

Wheels are standard and fill the guards nicely when lowered like this, tires are also standard but a set of rear 285/35 tires are fitted to the front of the car to assist in getting the understeer under control.

These slight modifications are all it took to get into the low 59’s at Tsukuba Circuit (59.061).

GTC’s GT-R: Europe’s First Tuned R35

July 8th, 2008

Ben Linney has been busy collecting parts for his Nissan GT-R over the recent months and has gone and fitted them up and run it on the dyno recently out at Perfect Touch. The results are good making 452.8 hp at all four wheels at 6,187 rpm. So far GTC are using a Sunline Racing GTspec TiTANIUM SR exhaust and a straight through front pipe. This setup deletes two of the four catalytic converters and improves flow as well as giving the car a great exhaust note.

Ben has also used a Cobb Tunning AccessPORT (beta version) to delimit the standard ECU. Tires have been replaced with Cooper Tires Zeon 2XS which are lighter than the standard Bridgestones by a considerable margin.

Next up GTC are looking to fit Power House Amuse R1000-No.1 Turbine Outlets to delete the remaining two catalytic converters.

Check out the rest of the photos Ben sent in after the jump.

Power House Amuse Fuji Speedway Demo Car Video From GTR-World

March 7th, 2008
[video:youtube:KdypU1QE-0o]

GTR-World.net have posted a new video on their site’s GTR-World TV section. Power House Amuse take their demo car out to Fuji Speedway and set a very fast 1.51.44 time which is only just short of Mine’s time of 1.51.258. With a bit more testing I’m sure Power House Amuse will up the stakes and give Mine’s something to work for. Driving the Power House Amuse car was Tanabe-san himself.

Higher resolution version of the video are available at the GTR-World link below.
