GReddy DCT Transmission Cooler for Nissan GT-R Debuts at SP Engineering

May 13th, 2010

Just launch days ago, GReddy has shipped what is one of the first units to official US GReddy dealer SP Engineering who wasted no time in fitting it up on their workshop SPE900 project GT-R. The kit is typical of the quality of product coming out of GReddy / Trust these days and fitted up great with amazing attention to detail at every step.

The core is 13 rows in size and 299×185.4x50mm in dimensions, it’s supplied with a FRP air duct to supply air from the front bumper and all hoses, hard lines and fittings needed to install it. It’s thermostat controlled to bypass the factory transmission oil cooler when it’s operating to maintain transmission fluid pressure. This also helps maintain the fluid temps independently of the engine coolant temperature.

It’s priced around the $2,495 mark minus the optional windshield reservoir tank. More photos at the SP Engineer blog and a link to the SP Engineering store is below…

GReddy TD06-20G Twin Turbo Kit by SP Engineering

May 9th, 2010

Great new video from the guys @ SP Engineering who’ve been busy building up some tough GT-Rs, the fastest ever down the drag strip to be precise.

Good enough for mid-9s down the quarter mile, matched with the right fuel setup this will leave you with a potent street or track car.

GReddy Trust Intercooler Spec-R HG T29 Kit for Nissan GT-R

May 1st, 2010

GReddy have officially released and priced their latest offering in the cooling arena for the Nissan GT-R, their Spec-R HG T29 Intercooler Kit. The kit comes in two forms, the full kit and the conversion kit and is designed to replace not only your OEM intercoolers with a joined core crossover type intercooler but much of your intake and intercooler piping as well.

The full kit features polished hard piping kit to support Trust pod filters in replacement of the OEM airboxes, polished hard piping kit to replace the intercooler piping, silicon host joiners, GReddy blow off valves and other minor but very important items such as brackets and hoses. The full kit retails at 388,500 yen in Japan.

The conversion kit assumes you already have the Trust intake piping kit so removes the intake pipes and the blow off valves. It saves a little money and goes for around 312,900 yen in Japan.

With either kit, you’re crossing the airflow over so you should need to take into account that the airflow sensed by the left MAF (mass airflow sensor) will now be fed to the ECU to control the RIGHT throttle. So most people recommend extending the MAF wiring harness to correct this when using this type of intercooler. I do not see a mention of that being included in either of these kits so it’s something to be aware of.

trust-intakepipe-001

Trust have extended their range of GT-R parts recently with the release of a variety of intake piping kits. First up and pictured above is the Trust Aluminium Intake Piping Kit. The kit is a direct replacement for the OE piping designed for bolting straight up with the factory air boxes installed. Six replacement 70mm aluminium pipes and silicon hose joiners with clamps ship with the kit. This kit is compatible with the GReddy Intercooler kit but not the GReddy TD06 turbine kit, GReddy will release a kit compatible with the TD06 kit soon.

This kit goes for around the 159,600 yen in Japan.

Next up is a pair of airbox replacement GReddy Suction Kits. There’s the Type-1 kit which includes two aluminium turbine compressor replacement pipes and a pair of foam mushroom filters. This kit includes silicon hose joiners also and sells for 100,800 yen in Japan.

Lastly is the GReddy Suction Kit Type-2, the unique thing in this kit is that the air boxes are replaced with a pair of mushroom filters that are positioned in front of the radiator support where they have more ready access to cold air. It includes polished aluminium compressor replacement piping, silicon hose joiners and airfilters and sells for 120,750 yen in Japan.

Trust and Garage Saurus: GReddy TD06-20G Kit Dynos 834ps @ Wheels

August 12th, 2009

saurus-trust-834ps-002

We’ve been following the progress of the Trust GReddy TD06-20G turbo kit for a while now, thanks to Garage Saurus, and today we’ve learned cold hard numbers on what the kit can do.

On Trust Japan’s dyno, running 22 psi of boost and completely maxing out the Bosche injectors they’ve managed to pull off a 834ps (822hp) run at all four wheels. Other components upgraded for the run were the intercoolers, utilising the Trust GReddy Type06-R Intercooler kit.

Quite an upgrade from where they started with “just” the 650ps output from Garage Saurus original basic performance upgrade components back in January.

TRUST GReddy T6 Turbo Kit in Development for Nissan GT-R

June 11th, 2009

trust-turbo-kit-001

Well given the right amount of time this was bound to happen. Trust are quite far along the development of their brand new low mount twin TD06SH turbo kit for the Nissan R35 GT-R. Thanks to Garage Saurus we’re seeing these up close and personal photos of the kit fitted to the Trust development GT-R.

The kit will feature a brand new original stainless manifold design which, as we said, tucks the GReddy TD06SH-20G turbos up nicely in a low mount configuration. This replaces the concept of the manifold combined with the turbo exhaust housing which could allow a variety of other turbos to be fitted – provided the size constraints are met. There’s twin external wastegates featured in the kit as well as a set of matching stainless flexible dump pipes.

According to GT-RR.com the kit should be good for about 880hp and be available in a matter of months. Of course as a GReddy / Trust USA and Japan distributor you can rely on the GT-RR guys to get your name down in line for one of these kits and you can find out more about that at the link below.

GReddy Titanium Racing Exhaust Now Stateside

June 10th, 2009

trust-exhaust-mvp-001

It’s taken it’s time but it’s now available in stock in the US. The GReddy (Trust) cat back exhaust is a fully titanium unit for ultimate weight savings. One pleasant side effect of using titanium is that proper exhaust note you’ve been hearing on many of the videos doing the rounds of the more tuned GT-Rs getting about. It’s not overly loud though, thanks to the large rear mufflers which also keep drone in check. You can hear what it sounds like on the MVP GT-R video below.

The exact weight savings total about 16 lbs over the stock exhaust system, a nice saving but couple that with the extra flow from the 80mm diameter piping and it’s a decent 20+hp power jump.

The results are, up to 18hp improvement in the mid range and 11hp at peak. A corresponding torque increase was also seen.

If you’re interested, get in now and you’ll get a set that’s already in the US shipped to your door for $3,699 from mvpgtr.com. The kits comes with all fittings, fasteners and airguides seen above including fitting instructions. Check out the link below.

GReddy USA has not fully emerged from their Chapter 11 filing but says they are confident they will over the coming months.
