COBB Tuning Silicone Intake Hose and Clamp Kit for Nissan GT-R

December 15th, 2009

cobb-tuning-silicon-001

COBB are choosing a fine time to launch a new reasonably priced GT-R product, just in time for Christmas? Maybe it wont make it in time to find it’s way under your tree this year but check it out.

This full silicon hose and clamp kit does away with your stock plastic and rubber hoses. The strong 4-ply and 5-ply silicon items are far more durable, heat resistant and resistant to expansion under boost than the OEM type so makes a sensible upgrade.

The clamps included are the T-bolt kind and are superior to the standard hose clamps albeit costlier, probably why OEMs stick with the vanilla flavor. Some may have seen from experience though that with more power than stock the GT-R likes to pop off an intake pipe occasionally.

Available in blue and black colors, the set retails at $695.

While you’re here, if you haven’t seen it yet, why not check out the interview with Trey Cobb at the Seibon booth from SEMA earlier this year embedded below.

November 14th, 2009

The WALD Nissan GT-R is one of those cars you either love or hate. It’s grown on me a lot since the first debut in January this year. A full Black Bison fitted white R35 was camped out in the south hall so we grabbed a few photos of it.

For more info you can check out our WALD category for past posts including pricing and so on.

gtrblog-presema-102

SEMA 2009 is kicking off in just two days time and today was the day to load the cars into the hall for the North American GT-R Owners Club’s representation. In the NAGTROC booth are a variety of GT-Rs from the full race specification GOTO:Racing car to the attention drawing and unique Royal T Blue GT-R.

We helped some of the guys detail and check in today and snapped a few photos along the way.

We spotted and heard about a few more GT-Rs at other booths already so we’ll be updating tomorrow or Tuesday with more.

SEMA Previews: NAGTROC Announcement Plus Password:JDM Sneak Peek

October 8th, 2009

passwordjdm-front-001

SEMA 2009 is almost upon us and it appears that a few Nissan GT-Rs are being prepared to be tricked out for the show. In about a month’s time we’ll be in Las Vegas for the annual event that runs from the 3rd to the 6th of November.

I will be there and so will the North American GTR Owner’s Club (NAGTROC) who will be hosting their own booth in the North Hall Lobby showing Nissan GT-Rs in varying states of tune from members and sponsors alike.

Speaking of NAGTROC, the guys have organized a special rate for suites at the super luxurious Palazzo Hotel at just $229/night. If you are attending SEMA or want to get in on this exclusive deal contact bookings at 866-263-3001 with group code VNAGT. You must book by MONDAY 5PM PDT 12th October. Then for your included SEMA pass contact me or Chuck @ NAGTROC.org via email.

NAGTROC and GTRBlog will be getting together for a meetup (or a few meetups actually!) to eat, drink and talk GT-Rs so feel free to get in on this as well by posting a comment below or just stay tuned for the details of the meet place and time.

It’s going to be a great SEMA this year with quite a few surprises in store so start planning your attendance now.

Password:JDM have started their plans. As you can see here their finished dry carbon wide front fenders are fitted and their demo GT-R is off to the paint shop for a respray. These front guards are easily wide enough to swallow 315 wide Toyo Proxes R888s at the front so you can kiss understeer goodbye.

Pricing and availability information to come as we hear it…

Rays Volk Racing VR.G2 Wheels in GT-R Sizes Shipping Now

May 27th, 2009

rays-vrg2-103

The awaited Nissan GT-R offset Volk Racing G2 are shipping now so you can finally get your hands on some if these look like they might be your style. These lightweight forged aluminium wheels, originally named after the legendary TE37, debuted at SEMA 2008 in the US and Tokyo AutoSalon 2009 in Japan and first appeared on the Mine’s GT-R. Since then they’ve been tweaked to look more aggressive on the GT-R and the tweaks are all for the better in my opinion.

The sizes seen here are 20x10J +30mm front and 20x11J +15mm rear. The same as those found as an option on the Zele Performance Complete Edition. Pickup a set through your favourite Rays Volk Racing wheels dealer.
