JUN Carbon Exhaust Ducts for Nissan GT-R

September 18, 2010 Comments off

JUN has deviated a little from their hardcore engine upgrades parts range to include this new Carbon Exhaust Duct in their GT-R lineup. These carbon exhaust tip surrounds will liven up your GT-R’s rear end for about 29,400 yen in Japan.

Possibly more interesting in the release than the parts themselves is that JUN seems to have a bright yellow R35 GT-R happening. Is this the return of the fabled JUN Hyper Lemon 1000hp GT-R in R35 format? We’d like to think so…

Tokyo AutoSalon 2010: JUN Camshafts TypeZero and Short Block with Liners

January 21, 2010 Comments off

Well the work-in-progress JUN 1000ps build with big cams is a great thing no doubt but not everyone is shooting for that level of ultimate power so they need a camshaft that will operate reliably with a more standard engine build. To fill that need, JUN Auto have produced this High Lift Camshaft TypeZero for the Nissan GT-R’s VR38DETT suitable for use with the standard ECU.

These camshafts feature identical duration and lift on both intake and exhaust sides which is 256 degrees duration and 10.3mm of lift. Not the 264 degrees and 10.5mm lift we heard for their big power build.

The price for these is set at a interesting 84,000 yen in Japan and about the $1,200 USD mark over in the states.

Update: You can now pick up a set for lower than our estimate, just $1150, online @ GT-RR

On the short block front, JUN Auto were also showing off their VR38 bare blocks with liners fitted. This is the kind of thing useful when you’ve spent the cash on the JUN Auto 4.0l stroker kit.

No pricing on the short blocks with liners just yet.

JUN Auto Nissan GT-R Camshafts Specifications

January 10, 2010 Comments off

The quest for the 1000ps JUN GT-R engine continues with the development of camshaft upgrades for the VR38. To get there JUN have opted for the biggest cam profile so far with 264 degrees of duration on both the intake and exhaust sides. Lift is also the most aggressive yet with 10.5mm on both intake and exhaust.

Pricing is not available yet but perhaps we will be able to probe deeper at Tokyo AutoSalon later this week.

SEMA 2009: JUN 4.0 Litre Stroker Kit for Nissan GT-R, JUN Camshafts Soon

November 10, 2009 Comments off

gtrblog-sema09-jun-105

While not news, the JUN Auto Custom Kit EX 4.0 was a little mythical in nature until SEMA this year. JUN were able to field a booth with various engine internal kits and among them, the kit for the Nissan GT-R which we first heard about back in March this year.

As promised the kit comprises pistons, rods and crank. ARP rod bolts are specially selected by JUN for the kit. The price is set at a nice round 1,880,000 yen or around the $20,000 USD mark in Japan.

As for results and expected power output, as yet there is very little public data. When asked for test data we were informed that we can expect some once the upcoming JUN camshafts for VR38 become available and the whole engine is reassembled in the JUN GT-R.

While the real test data is not public, it’s known that JUN are shooting to be the first 1000hp R35 GT-R on the block using this setup with a custom exhaust manifolds sporting a pair of TD06H-25g turbos, the biggest yet to grace the VR38.

Details on the JUN camshafts should be available within the next two months so stay tuned for that.

jun-gtrs-001

Well we had a little tidbit of info back in March regarding this but now we’ve heard that pre-orders are being taken for the JUN VR38DETT engine internals and it will be known as the VR38DETT Custom Kit. The kit should contain:

  • Billet conrods
  • Billet pistons
  • Billet crank shaft
  • Upgraded cams

The first 10 prototype kits are expected for September 2009 delivery and will sell for 1,575,000 yen in Japan. Expressions of interest on the first 10 kits are being taken but not deposits yet.

Those keen should contact their local dealer of JUN parts like GT-RR or GTC who I thank for passing on this info.

JUN Auto Engine Parts in Development

March 7, 2009 Comments off

One of the most widely respected Japanese hardcore engine development workshops is lead by charismatic Junichi Tanaka-san. Based in Tokyo they’ve built some serious gear for customers interested in the top end of the horsepower range and they already have no shortage of customers who want the magic 1000hp from the VR38DETT. The name of the company, of course, is JUN Auto.

Recently he’s unveiled the plans they’ve made so far on getting there from here, 485ps to 1000hp and they’re exciting.

Starting in April and May JUN will focus considerable effort on the internals of the Nissan R35 GT-R’s enigmatic VR38DETT. Top of their list are:

  • Billet Crankshafts
  • Billet Connecting Rods
  • Billet Pistons
  • Billet Camshafts

Should be some interesting times and I’m hoping we’ll see a JUN Super Lemon R35 in in the not too distant future. Check out after the jump to see a test drive of JUN’s 1000hp R33 GT-R.
