SouthSide Performance Upgrades for Nissan GT-R Clutch Packs

It’s been a long product development cycle for SouthSide Performance on these. We originally got word that they were developing them back in October 2008. They’ve made it happen though and today they’ve announced the results of their efforts.

Two different clutch pack products are going on sale, from SSP the first of the two is the SS Clutch Pack. These are the first aftermarket OEM style clutch replacement solution for Nissan GT-R owners. Right now even Nissan will not replace a clutch on the GT-Rs sophisticated GR6 dual-clutch transmission so this is a godsend for anyone who’s modified their car and worn the clutches already. The SS Clutch Pack comes with 12 friction discs that are direct replacements for your factory items.

The second clutch pack is the RS Clutch pack. These have a larger (25% larger) friction surface area in order to handle the big power some of these modified GT-Rs are beginning to make. We’re told these RS Clutch Packs are perfect for those seeking up to 700 hp at the wheels.

Installation is relatively easy, something that can be undertaken at any competent transmission workshop. This is really good news for those who may not have too many R35 experienced techs in their neighborhood.

Price for the SS Clutch Pack is $1,399 with the RS Clutch Pack coming in at $1,599. Both should be ready to ship to customers at the end of April. For more information on ordering them, we urge you to go direct to SouthSide Performance at the link below.
