Boost Logic Crank Dampener for Nissan GT-R

October 25th, 2010

Parts news update time – something we haven’t done enough of lately. In this installment we highlight the latest release from Boost Logic which is their Crank Dampener/Pulley for the VR38. The guys at Boost Logic had noticed a disturbing trend of irregular main bearing wear during engine teardowns in their workshop which they corroborated with other workshops around that were doing the same.

In their view, this is being caused by crankshaft resonance possibly seen once the GT-R in question is tuned and still running the OEM dampener designed for OEM power.

To solve this issue and the potential bearing problems it can cause over time they’ve released this dampener of their own which uses a larger, higher quality dampener ring than factory which is better suited to balance out the stronger resonance created by engines that produce more torque.


  • Reduces Torsional Vibration
  • SFI 18.1 Approved
  • 360 Degree Lazer Engraved Timing Marks
  • OEM Crank Pulley Diameter

They’re priced around the $999 mark and you can order one at one of Boost Logic’s distributors.

On the back of the release of the Willall Racing WR35DC rear differential cooler comes this complimentary cooler for the front differential also from Willall Racing. This compact cooler mounts behind the front grille and is supplied with the pump, brackets, hoses, fittings and wiring required to fit up. The cooler promises an increase in front diff component longevity by running the oil cooler and by increasing total oil volume up to 1.1 quarts.

Again the front diff cooler integrates seamlessly with Willall Racing’s cooling products – so if you already have the others there’s always room for one more!

HKS Kansai Tackle the Brake Cooling Issue

June 29th, 2009


Some of you who’ve spent some time getting to know the GT-R at your local race tracks may have noticed that the brakes tend to get hot. It’s not rocket science really, a big heavy car like the GT-R expects a lot from it’s brakes even if they are mammoth in size.

Nissan’s solution to brake heat issues was to throw a whole heap of money at carbon ceramic rotors and a pair of tiny air ducts in the front lip spoiler for the SpecV. HKS Kansai on the other hand have come up with a product a little more subtle and available. Simple air guides that bolt to your lower control arms and direct air towards the calipers.

Could it be this easy? Well real world results are not abundant at this stage so we’ll have to wait and see. These sell for about 39,900 yen in Japan.

Thanks to Mindlessoath for posting this over on NAGTROC.

The final product is finished beautifully and is supplied with oil pan, oil pickup extension and all seals and quality fasteners required to complete the install job.

Once fitted up, Willall Racing filled up with just under 8 litres of engine oil, a 40% increase in oil volume over standard.

You can order these from Willall Racing or Forged Performance, the US distributor of Willall Racing products.

HKS, Tuner News , , , , , , , Interview with HKS Kansai

May 2nd, 2008

There is a new interview up on the website with HKS Kansai boss Toshiyuki Mukai about their impressions of the Nissan GT-R and also on tuning the new addition to their stable. GTR-World were also able to test drive HKS Kansai’s GT-R

Mukai-san comments that the first thing they noticed was the high seating position and that this had to change. The seat was also not supportive enough under high G cornering and finally the position of the seat also was not conducive to taking long trips. To fix this they fitted the Recaro TS series seats in red up front which lower the seat height as well as providing a considerable weight saving.

HKS Kansai Full Twin Exhaust

April 22nd, 2008

HKS Kansai have developed a full twin exhaust from the front pipes back. They have managed to do away with the rear central muffler design as well instead opting for two inline mufflers with a more direct exhaust flow path.

As with all HKS Kansai parts the quality looks to be top notch. We’ll let you know once some back to back dyno tests have been performed on the power increase you should expect from this type of setup.
