SSP To Build 6061 Billet GR6 Transmission Cases for Nissan GT-R

May 19, 2010

SSP brings some serious new hardware to the table with the finalization of plans to build a billet transmission rear casing for the Nissan GT-R’s GR6 DCT gearbox.

The premise behind building a strengthened casing is multifaceted, I can think of a few obvious reasons to do it. Firstly to prevent losing transmissions due to casing failures. This has occurred in the past when casings crack under high torque loads. Secondly to prevent internal accelerate wear caused by components moving slightly when the casing twists under high torque loads.

This baby has been a long time coming and I remember chatting to SSP about it in Tokyo in 2008! So good on the guys to sticking with it.

The first cases should start cutting this week, expect to see more info soon…
