MCR Head Gasket Coming Soon for Nissan GT-R

February 17, 2010 Comments off

MCR have got their first trial head gaskets in for test fitting. They’re bolting up their own VR38 which they’ll then pressure test. If all goes well the guys are looking at releasing this pretty quickly.

When it’s released it’ll be just the second head gasket on the market behind the Cosworth item which was first seen at SEMA last year.

We’ll give you guys a heads up when we know pricing but it might be one to add to your shopping list if you’re doing engine work in the near future…

MCR Release Stainless Downpipes for Nissan GT-R

January 24, 2010 Comments off

It’s been a while since we’ve updated new parts from MCR but they’ve been keeping themselves quite busy. Recently they’ve released a new set of stainless downpipes for the GT-R that delete the primary catalytic convertors.

Built from SUS304 grade stainless steel, these weigh in at 8kg less than the standard pipes. They measure 70mm in diameter and go for around 105,000 yen in Japan.

MCR Update Carbon Aero Parts Lineup

July 29, 2009 Comments off


After a short hiatus in the parts release department, MCR have updates in the aero range that should be available for GT-R owners now or in the very near future. We got our first look at the MCR Carbon Front Lip prototype about 12 whole months ago now. To match it, MCR have finished a set of subtle carbon sideskirts and a new design rear underspoiler as well.

The rear underspoiler is quite unique, it takes a leaf out of the new Nissan Z34’s book with an integrated tail lamp in the center. It even looks like the OE tail lamp fitted back there. Interesting indeed.

MCR have also been busy updating their website of late, so if you’re in the mood to checkout their whole range in one place, head over to the link below.

If you’re more interested in getting your hands on these, hit up who’ll be getting the first ones in shortly.

MCR Crimson Exhaust for Nissan GT-R

February 4, 2009 Comments off

MCR’s second foray into the Nissan R35 GT-R exhaust product business was released last week. The MCR Crimson exhaust is a full titanium 80mm diameter system with two 125mm exhaust outlets, one per side. Being made from titanium and designed the way it is means it’s considerably lighter than the standard exhaust. Up to 17.3kg lighter in fact.

Price is 312,900 yen including tax and it’s available right now. Rear bumper finishers to fill the gap left by your standard quad outlet exhaust will be available shortly.

MCR Begin Work on GT-R Side Skirts

October 30, 2008 Comments off

Just a sneak peak at MCR’s upcoming side skirt prototypes for GT-R. Not a great photo or a huge change. A subtle difference is all it takes to set it apart sometimes. No doubt the finished product will be carbon just like their front lip spoiler.

MCR, ARC Partner Again

July 27, 2008 Comments off

Found this creative photo of the ARC intercoolers on the MCR R35 GT-R and thought to share it. MCR and ARC have teamed up on a number of projects lately. Firstly they collaborated on the ARC titanium exhaust version 1, then the ARC intercoolers. Next up is the ARC titanium exhaust version 2 which they are currently working on.

This kit goes on sale in August. The shift kit is already available on their website around the $800 – $900 USD mark. Check out a video of it in action after the jump.

MCR Carbon Fiber Front Lip

July 10, 2008 Comments off

MCR have fitted up their latest prototype modification to their demo car today. A carbon fiber front lip replacement. Differing a little from the standard lip’s shape this lip is also quite a bit lighter. Currently we have no release date or price but we will update you as soon as Kobayashi-san let’s us know more!

MCR Update: GT-R Side LEDs, Intercooler Development with ARC

July 3, 2008 Comments off

Just a little teaser shot of MCR’s side LEDs fitted to their Nissan GT-R. These live behind the clear reflector at the rear and light it up. Product looks good but not sure on the purpose. Maybe just for when they’re showing their car at the various car shows they frequent.

The other tidbit is that MCR and ARC are teaming up again to develop intercoolers for the R35 GT-R. Meetings have been held (a few weeks back now) and personally I think this will be a great project to keep an eye on. Traditionally ARC have produced some of the best cooling products money can buy out of Japan. I have one of their intercoolers for my GT-R. ARC coolers are usually efficient cores with well designed lightweight cast aluminium end tanks.

Update: ARC has updated us with a photo of the fitted intercoolers (below).

This partnership follows their last team effort when developing the ARC Titanium exhaust for MCR’s GT-R earlier this year.
