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.

Forge Motorsport Release Intercooler Upgrade for Nissan GT-R

January 22nd, 2010

Forge Motorsports have finally released their anticipated intercooler upgrade kit for the Nissan GT-R. The upgrade turns the tables on the conventional GT-R intercooler design. Instead of two cores side by side this uses one long tube and fin core above another in a single long unit. The core size is 740mmx250mmx100mm. The benefits of this design are a greater overall volume and reduced pressure loss versus the standard intercooler. Overall the whole setup actually works out lighter than standard also with around 0.9kg shaved off the cooler and pipework setup.

In terms of performance improvement, Forge Motorsports noticed more area under the curve when dynoing this against a stock intercooler with improved cooling as well. With the standard cooler air intake temps were around the 43 degree C mark, with the Forge Motorsport cooler this dropped to 32 degrees C.

Everything you need for installation is included in the kit at just £1,800 GBP plus shipping. For UK residents that price is minus VAT.

Thanks to Ben @ GTC-R for the tip off.

HKS Intercooler Kit for Nissan GT-R Coming Soon

December 23rd, 2009

HKS continue to come up with some new ideas in the R35 GT-R parts business, especially this week in the intake air cooling arena where suprisingly few companies have succesfully ventured so far. Perhaps the standard cooling solution is difficult to improve upon? Either way the HKS Intercooler Kit for the Nissan GT-R is a shift in the right direction I feel.

What HKS has done is ditched the standard intake air guide/ducting system and replaced it with their own carbon version. This allows them to choose a longer core (400×260) and gain important surface area in doing so. Available surface area in an intercooler can mean more efficient cooling but in this case HKS went with a thinner core (65mm) to do so. What you usually end up with when doing this is an increase in pressure drop across the intercooler but, this is something that HKS have thought of in advance and they’ve tried to design this away with a new inner fin design. The thin core design also helps in lessening the effect of blocking airflow to the radiator.

The HKS Intercoolers offer all this and at a lower weight as well losing 1.6kg over the standard items. There’s no pricing as yet but we’ll let you know when we find out around January 2010.

In other AMS news the guys have been back out at the drag strip to try and beat their own record for a Nissan GT-R on pump gas. Thanks to a set of loaner MT drag radials courtesy of Chuck “NAGTROC” H, with no other changes, they’ve dropped their own world fastest GT-R on pump gas ET down to 10.53 @ 133.68 mph! Congrats!
