Haltech Platinum Pro ECU for US Nissan GT-R In Stock Now

July 1, 2009 Comments off


The Haltech team have lived up to their word and begun delivering USDM Nissan GT-R suitable Haltech Platinum Pro full ECUs this week. After launching not too long ago, some units are in the US already with more to come shortly. The ECUs ship with full OE grade harnesses, software, USB cable, and the connectors required to wire in the MAP sensors and wideband O2 sensor inputs.

All this for the retail price of $3,200 seems cheap!

Haltech Release Platinum Pro ECU for Nissan R35 GT-R

June 17, 2009 Comments off


This month marks the end of quite a long development process for the much anticipated Haltech fully programmable ECU for the Nissan R35 GT-R. The guys have released it now for Japanese and Australian delivered GT-R models with US delivered models to follow shortly.

High Performance Fuel and Ignition ECU for Nissan R35 GTR

The next generation in engine management. Purpose built for Nissan’s supercar, the Platinum Pro R35 GTR ECU is a fully programmable ECU interfacing directly with all the standard Nissan sensors and on board computer systems, taking control of all the essential engine management tasks such as fuel delivery, ignition timing, boost levels, camshaft positioning and correction maps.

The Platinum Pro R35 GTR ECU even interfaces with the factory Nissan CAN Bus for on board diagnostic and troubleshooting. The Platinum Pro R35 GTR ECU unlocks the limitless potential of Nissan’s VR Powerhouse.


  • Sequential Fuel Control
  • Direct Fire Ignition Control
  • Variable Camshaft postion mapping
  • Knock Detection
  • Engine Rev Limiter
  • Closed loop boost control
  • Launch control
  • Closed loop wideband 02 control
  • On board data logging
  • Speed density, Alpha-N or MAF tuning
  • Additional user definable inputs and outputs
  • Windows Software

In terms of those GT-R owners who have managed to extract big power with existing technologies (such as OE ECU re-flashes) you’ll be well aware of the protective nature of the stock ECU. Boost cuts, limp modes and so on all hold you back whether you’re on the drag strip, circuit or even occasionally just hard driving on the street. To utilise the GT-R’s VR38 to it’s full potential, this should be on your wish list.

For those of you chasing hard data and results, I point you in the direction of the recent NAGTROC thread where “One Lap of America” winner Underpressure has been tuning and testing with his Haltech unit already and has published some pretty amazing in-progress dyno charts.

SuperLap 2008: GT-R Time Attack Photo Gallery

July 5, 2008 Comments off was in attendance at SuperLap 2008 today at Oran Park Raceway outside Sydney, Australia. Entered into the open class for the time attack was Russel Newman with his brand new Hi Octance Racing / CNJ Motorsport Nissan R35 GT-R. For the event he had fitted up a HKS VAC speed delimter but the car was mechanically standard and was wearing the standard JDM base model Dunlop summer tires.

Russel managed an awesome time of 1:17.1 in the GT-R and was looking consistent in the 1:17s on his hot laps. We will most likely have a complete rundown of the results by early next week. To put that in perspective the fastest cars on the day ran 1:12 – 1:13s and they were race prepped supercharged Lotus Elises weighing somewhere around half a GT-R.

Haltech was also in attendance with their Nissan R35 GT-R although they weren’t racing today it sounds like they might be gearing up to head back to the track shortly. More on that when it happens.

Haltech GT-R Runs 11.1 @ 124mph in Stock Trim w/Haltech ECU

May 18, 2008 Comments off

GTRBlog was down at the Mackenzie’s Motor Trimming Compak Attak out at Western Sydney International Dragway (WSID) at Eastern Creek today to see the Haltech Nissan R35 GT-R run. In their first run of the morning at 9.30am on a cold track into a headwind they ran an 11.1 @ 124mph using the GT-R’s launch control system. Their second run saw the launch control system disarm itself prior to the start but they still ran an 11.5 @ 125.9mph. Their third and final run saw similar issues and they managed an 11.8 @ 126mph. It must be said that this is Haltech’s first run down the strip in the new GT-R so the launch control routine is still not 100% familiar to all their drivers.

GTRBlog spoke with Haltech on their development progress with the new GT-R and after not much more than a week in the workshop they had already cracked the ECU and prototyped their own full computer for engine management. Right now the Haltech Platinum ECU is running ignition, timing and fuel maps for the GT-R while the standard ECU is still in place for ABS, ATTESSA, accessories and so forth.

While developing and tuning the ECU on the dyno Haltech had tried replacing various sections of the exhaust including the center muffler section including the secondary cats as well as the rear muffler section but saw very little in the way of worthwhile gains. They have since put the exhaust back to standard.

So yes you read that right, standard GT-R, full interior, full stock exhaust, Haltech ECU runs 11.1. It doesn’t stop here though, Halltech hope to see 10’s with a little more development and a strong launch on a good day. I’d say they’re well on their way to meeting this goal.

Follow the jump to read the timeslip from today’s 11.1 at Compak Attak and stay tuned for a full update soon with a photo gallery from today.

Update: Forgot to mention this was on pump gas, everyday 98 RON unleaded. (93 octane US)

Update: Video uploaded by Haltech of the 11.1 run. Cheers to Dan from Haltech for the heads up.

Haltech Nissan R35 GT-R ECU Prototype Power Run

May 17, 2008 Comments off

Haltech have been busy developing their new R35’s ECU and managed to tweak out a significant gain in power. Exhaust has been upgraded but not many other details have leaked out yet. The car was run up on the dyno and made 356 Kw (477hp) at all wheels up from 298 Kw (400hp) on the same dyno.

Haltech will be running their car down the quarter mile at the Compak Attak event at Western Sydney International Dragway tomorrow so stay tuned for results from that.
