COBB Tuning Release AccessTUNER Race for Nissan GT-R

November 7th, 2010

COBB’s famous AccessTUNER Pro software for the Nissan GT-R COBB AccessPORT has traditionally only been available to approved AccessTUNER workshops. This is fine for the majority of end users but for race teams or for experienced tuners, returning back to base for a touch up has been restrictive.

AccessTUNER Race end-user tuning software comes to the rescue here offering the ability to do everything from modifying existing maps to touch them up to building completely new maps from the ground up for a major retune.

AccessTUNER provides control of vital engine parameters to the user, such as; intake cam advance, wastegate duty cycle, fuel injector scalar, boost control tables, knock sensitivity, rev limiters, speed limiters and many more. Customizable data monitors let the user choose which channels are monitored to see how changes impact the behavior of the engine. The built-in data logging capability captures data from up to 30 channels across the entire rev-range, allowing detailed data analysis after a dynamometer test. 3-D graphical mapping gives the user a comprehensive view of engine behavior across three axis to evaluate where performance can be maximized. An integral dashboard shows the user-chosen gauges to be displayed during the tuning process.

It seems pretty full featured, in fact it looks almost exactly like the Pro version except that it is locked to a single AccessPORT. So no tuning your friends GT-Rs with the Race version unfortunately.

Still it’s great value all the same, on top of the already giant bang for your buck AccessPORT. It sells for $695.

K&N Air Filters for the Nissan GT-R – High Flow, High Efficiency Air Filters

October 10th, 2010

Whether your GT-R is an every day street car or a highly tuned beast you are more than likely still using the factory airboxes, they’re just that good. You can choose to roll with those paper OEM filters but you may find that while they filter great they don’t flow the same as a good K&N air filter set would.

The K&N Air Filters are a high flow, oiled filter element made from many interwoven layers of surgical cotton gauze. They’re designed to last the life of the car and only require washing maintenance every 50,000 miles.

They drop right in with no modifications needed and retail around the $103.68 mark including free shipping! Head on over to the link below for more info…
