GT-RR partners with John Shafer
Monday 28th September 2009

It is with great pleasure that we announce GT-RR’s newest member of our team of GT-R specialists. John Shafer has recently joined GT-RR officially as our Master GT-R Tuner. John will assist our projects and clients all over the world with technical support and custom tuning. GT-RR has already had a successful history working with John on various projects and we are excited to have him as an integrated part of our team to even better serve our clients needs.

John as many of you may know was the R35 GT-R tuning guru behind the development of the Cobb AccessPORT for the GT-R. John was also the first aftermarket tuner in the world to collaborate on the reverse engineering team for the GT-R’s ECU during his time working for Cobb. Since then John continued to make advancements to the Cobb unit, personally writing every map for every AccessPORT around the world. John has also served as a liaison for nearly every GT-R specialty tuning shop in North America. Amongst all of this, John has also written a tuning guide for Cobb which teaches their dealers how to tune the R35.

We at GT-RR are proud to take our level of service to new heights by adding John whom many would consider to be the most respected and experienced R35 GT-R tuner in the world.

Additionally, as you may have heard, we are now offering complete car building services on both coasts of the US as well as remote computer tuning worldwide. John’s tuning facility, Akuma Motorsports of Morganville, New Jersey has become our official east coast partner for our client projects. If you need any work done on your car, regardless of where you live, we now offer more flexible and cost effective solutions than ever before.

Keep tuned to our website and blog as we release more information of our new 2010 Black on Black Street car project and the finishing power modifications of our Toyo GT-R project, both of which are being tuned by John out of our east coast partner facility.
