SouthSide Performance Transmission Cooler for Nissan GT-R

December 24th, 2010

SSP Transmission Cooler for GTR

Another cool product from South Dakota based SSP is this R Spec Race Transmission Cooler for the R35’s GR6 transmission. The guys at SSP have tried a lot of various solutions on the circuit and finally decided on this three part solution. Originally released earlier in the year, it’s now been re-released at a lower price point with updated availability.

On the track they were able to gather enough data to say that this is the ideal solution for keeping your trans fluid temps in check. During 10 lap sessions in 85 degree heat they saw average fluid temps of 220 – 225 degrees.

The kit comes with everything you need for a quick easy install, is available now and sells for around the $2399 mark including a 1 year warranty on parts. Hit up the link below for contact details for SSP.

The price may be going back up in the new year so check it out soon if this is something you’re looking into…

Willall Racing Expands Nissan GT-R Tuning Catalog Further

October 9th, 2010

Quite a few updates from the Willall Racing camp in terms of new tuning products in their Nissan GT-R lineup. Let’s take a quick look at what we have since our last update.

First up we see Willall again update their cooling solutions. This time with their latest water misting addon for OEM or aftermarket oil coolers. The concept is that these WR35MS water misting blocks clip into the GT-R’s front bar (or in front of any cooler core) and produce a fine mist of water in the air stream before the cooler core. The quickly evaporating water droplets remove heat from the core more efficiently than air alone. Designed for use with engine oil or transmission fluid coolers, OEM or aftermarket, they’re priced at the $875 mark for the complete assembly.

Moving on to aero products and Willall Racing have launched their own polyethylene front splitter kit. This ingenious modular splitter bolts up to the OEM bolt holes with no cutting required. It’s designed to improve the GT-R’s stability and reduce understeer on the track.

Next is a range of camber adjustment suspension arms called the WR35FCA and the WR35RCA. We’ll let Willall do the talking here:

Using the development technique of assessing the track requirement of the GTR through research from out own Tracked R35 then engineering the solution we have recently produced these replacement Chrome Moly Front and Rear Camber/Castor arms to allow total control and adjustment of wheel camber and toe. Precision tig welded with additional gussets, using quality rod end joints, and coming complete with the required Clevis and mounting pins, WR35FCA is a complete upper-arm replacement system. Bolting up directly into the R35 GTR in maximum trim WR35FCA delivers over 4 degrees negative camber, which can be spaced out with precision spaced ‘shims’ behind the main camber block quickly and easily to change camber settings….

This method of upper arm design is extremely strong, and effective for accurate camber control, particularly in the instance where a 4000lb car is applying maximum cornering G-Force loading through the suspension. The camber block itself is machined from high grade aluminum, and the moly arms are ‘blackened’ for a professional finish.

Both the rear camber and toe arms are designed to give a wide range of rear wheel adjustment for the keen racer, we run 2.5 degrees negative in the rear of our GTR, and are able to be adjusted in the car without having to remove the rear floor pans, which as all GTR owners know, can be a time-costly exercise. Mounts are once more high-end rod end joints, and precision machined flanges for maximum strength.

The WR35FCA front arms and the WR35RCA rear arms will be launched towards the end of October 2010. Willall are looking to make these an affordable option so look for the pricing soon.

Willlall Racing Transmission Cooler Lite Edition – DIY Kit

August 10th, 2010

While some may feel the need to opt for a full blown GR6 transmission cooler with fancy extended sump like the Willall Racing WR35TC there are others that may not need to go to that expense. Maybe you just track the car occasionally or just want to DIY and keep it simple at the same time. Willall Racing’s WR35TC-Lite will close that gap at a fair price which is a welcome addition to the aftermarket.

WR35TC-Lite is a mid-mount cooling solution mounting in front of the rear exhaust section so that its air ‘signal’ is not polluted by hot exhaust gasses. This is a proven cooling location that we use with our WR35DC rear differential cooler, and testing so far has shown that at within a second of Carerra Cup lap pace (a good worldwide reference line) and 75 degree ambients it is possible to consistently reduce transmission temperature by 15F-25F consistently and keep the GTR transmission temperature out of the red.

Technical aspects of WR35TC-Lite are as follows

  • German gear style VDO 6 litre per minute transmission pump
  • 13 row oil cooler core
  • 500F lines with crimped fittings
  • CNC mounting bracket (anodised) and cooler plate
  • High durability hose clamps
  • Tapered lock fitting for the stock transmission pan (comes with professional seals)
  • Wiring loom integrated with relay and operation switch (with light)
  • Anti abrasion wrap for the cooler lines

The kit is priced at the $1295 mark and is available now from Willall Racing dealers worldwide…

GTC 750R Demo Car Shows Off GTC’s New Parts Lineup

July 10th, 2010

UK based tuner GTC Racing has been making a great name for itself with GT-R tuning and original parts since launch and the latest iteration of the combined knowledge and hardware is the GTC750R GT-R. The team have put it through it’s paces on the dyno and on the track. The result is a GT-R that is hypercar quick with looks to match.

The car features a lengthy list of modifications with some of the highlights being:

  • GTC 90mm Titan Exhaust with GTC Titan 90mm Y-Pipe
  • GTC 80 mm Zircotech coated de-cat front pipes
  • Hybid IHI/Garret GT30 ball bearing turbos
  • Garret Wastegate Actuators
  • 1000cc ID Injectors
  • GTC 80mm MAF pipes (prototypes) – w/ HPX MAF sensors
  • Twin 255 lt fuel pumps w/ upgraded fuel lines
  • GTC Marston Core Intercooler w/80mm hard pipe kit (no BOVs)
  • GTC Radiator
  • GTC 14 plate clutch system & steel plates & shims
  • Prototype gearbox cooler (water type)
  • Alloy extended gearbox oil pan
  • Alloy engine sump
  • COBB Tuning AccessPORT w/GTC custom tune

With those mods, and a good driver, it reeled off a 10.3 @ 139 mph during it’s shake down testing. The guys report that they have cracked the GT-R’s infamous launch control systems and can now raise the ECM’s launch rev limit to wherever is most optimal. Given that, we expect to see an interesting few runs coming up soon both from GTC and from abroad.

For more information on the latest range of GTC products for the GT-R, head over to the GTC-R website, give them a call or check out their discussion thread over on the NAGTROC forums.

Willall Racing Transmission Cooler Pump Upgrade for WR35TCF

March 13th, 2010

For maximum efficiency when using Willall’s front mounted transmission cooler, they’ve designed this pump upgrade that will replace the supplied VDO item. This Propump, as they’ve called it, manages to circulate the entire volume of transmission fluid through the front mount cooler every 40 seconds. In testing, the guys have found this unit can assist lowering temps by as much as 35 – 55 degrees F.

The kit will ship with all components necessary to fit it including the high performance pump assembly, control electronics and CNC machined mounting hardware.

To spec out a new WR35TC-F with the Propump will run you an additional $395. Existing WR35TC-F owners should stay tuned and expect an announcement on what they can do for an upgrade some time in April.

Nismo Rear Differential Cooler for Nissan GT-R Coming Soon

March 9th, 2010

On the circuit and even with some hard street driving, GT-R owners will know that the transmission temperature has a habit of rising quite rapidly. To compound that, on the GT-R, the transmission is integrated with the rear differential housing and because of this, heat energy is freely transferred between them.

In Nismo’s testing experience, with their Tokachi 24hrs race car and their Super Taikyu R35, cooling the rear differential has been surprisingly effective at lowering transmission temperatures. So much so that they’re now releasing their in-house developed rear differential cooler as a kit for the GT-R.

The kit features a electric oil pump, braided hoses, cooler core, and wiring harness for automatic or manual in-cabin operation. When installed it increases the diff oil capacity by 2 liters which is a help by itself.

In Nismo’s testing of the ClubSport GT-R on Sodegaura Circuit in Chiba, they were happy to see the diff oil temperature at no time exceeded 140 degrees C. Exactly what the transmission temperature was like during the testing is not known though.

The diff oil cooler is due for release in April and we will have availability details at that time.

AAM Competition Intercooler for Nissan GT-R

August 4th, 2009

aam-cooler-001

Almost anyone who’s ever owned a turbocharged car before in their life KNOWS this. You need a bigger intercooler. Your factory ones do a job and is suitable for it’s intended purpose but as soon as you begin tuning you’re running into a problem. It’s simple and luckily most people get it. Air makes power, air goes in (intake) and air comes out (exhaust) and the cooler your intake air, the more dense the air is and the more power you make. Simple.

Remove some restrictions on both sides, better exhaust, less cats, better filters and more free flowing high performance intercooler and reap the benefits.

AAM has thus put the finishing touches on exactly what YOU need. Their new AAM Competition Intercooler for the Nissan GT-R has been fitted up in prototype form and it looks to fit the bill. Featuring a big volume increase by maxing out the use of available space, it still manages to bolt on in the OEM cooler location with no drama.

Looks pretty badass too. I’m sure we’ll be seeing pricing by the end of the week.

Thanks Clint from AAM!
