Willall Racing’s Racing Surge Tank Setup for Nissan GT-R

February 21st, 2010

If there’s one inadequacy that sets many road cars apart from proper track cars it’s proper fluid control under high cornering G loads. Willall Racing have discovered the GT-R is not immune to this when the fuel tank gets low and the fuel pickup starts to be starved on tight right handers.

To properly put the issue to bed they’ve built this compact half gallon surge tank that mounts in the trunk and feeds the engine via a pair of Walbro 255l/h pumps and teflon braided lines.

With this setup they’re easily able to pump enough E85 to make 600rwhp, which if you’d read our story the other day about HP Logic’s E85 tuning, you’d know is a lot more juice than your average 600hp gasoline tune. Better yet, they’re able to keep driving the car hard all the way to empty without dangerously leaning out the fuel mixture intermittently on tight corners.

Want one? Well slow down, this isn’t one of Willall’s standard product launches. I think if you ask nicely though they might be convinced to build you one on a one off basis. You can reach them by email at “info AT willall.com.au.”

Mine’s Fuel Delivery Upgrades for Nissan GT-R Coming Soon

January 7th, 2010

The standard fuel system in the GT-R is stout but it certainly has it’s limits and owners around the world are quickly realising this. When the standard turbos are upgraded or replaced, supporting fuel modifications are basically mandatory to be able to provide enough fuel into the mix to safely support the airflow the larger turbos are capable of. Even in standard turbo’d vehicles, injectors are commonly run close to their maximums.

Mine’s has thought about this and is in the midst of developing the latest upgrade package known as the Mine’s Fuel Delivery Pipe & 650cc Injector Kit. So named, it’s fairly obvious to see what the contents are.

The fuel rail itself is a simple bolt on affair and the upgrade ensures each injector will be fed with a constant fuel pressure required for optimal fuel atomisation. The whole setup is assuredly 100% compatible with the Mine’s VX-ROM ECU upgrade.

To match the injector and fuel rail upgrades, Mine’s is also developing a fuel assembly upgrade, and keeping in the usual theme, it will also directly replace the OEM fuel assembly without requiring special modifications.

Keep in mind that these items are still in development so the final look and feel will differ and pricing/release dates have not been finalised either.

Update: Don’t forget, if you’re travelling to Japan this year for Tokyo AutoSalon 2010, Mine’s Meeting will be held at the same time. 15th – 18th of January at the Mine’s HQ in Yokosuka. Click here for more details
