Euro Nissan GT-R Sports Additional Updates for Next Year

November 11, 2009 Comments off


Nissan recently announced several key changes to the base Nissan GT-R for the Japanese market including tweaked suspension and upgraded rear diffuser.

Nissan Europe has also carried over the changes from the MY2010 JDM car into the European market GT-R with a few more items we hadn’t seen before such as:

  • Updated electronic braking distribution to provide better braking control in the dry
  • Updated torque distrTo reduce rear axle binding at low speeds and when fluids are cold, Nissan has modified the torque distribution between the front and rear axles
  • Updated TCM code for more aggressive downshifts between 4th – 3rd and 3rd – 2nd
  • ECM code updated to meet Euro 5 emissions standards
  • Double clear coat on bumpers
  • Gunmetal finish on guage surrounds
  • Rear seat area receives more insulation

Overall a couple of positive changes that will result in a more refined GT-R come next year. Sale date still to come and no word if pricing will remain the same yet.

Milltek Exhaust System for the Nissan R35 GT-R

September 23, 2009 Comments off


I admit I probably don’t cover anywhere near the variety of parts coming out of Europe that I should. Here is something I found appealing to make up for it though, the Milltek Exhaust for the GT-R.

This stainless system features a secondary cat delete Y-pipe section fitted with flex joints for enhanced durability. The Y-pipe feeds a 3″ / 76mm main section into two rear silencers feeding a quartet of 127mm outlets.

It’s all finished rather nicely without any burnt titanium look in sight. Checkout their website for a few more pics, or to find your nearest dealer, at the link below.

Cobb AccessPORT for Euro Spec Nissan GT-R Now Available

July 2, 2009 Comments off


Suffer no more Euro GT-R owners, the Cobb AccessPORT is now available for your Nissan GT-R! Thanks to the hard work and forsight by GTC-Racing based in the UK, who spent hours road and dyno testing, the AccessPORT can now be yours and features, as expected, two stages of power upgrades just as the overseas models do.

The net performance gain for each AP stage is:

Stage 1, 97 RON Fuel:

  • +63 hp and +70 lbft of torque

Stage 2, 97 RON Fuel:

  • +70 hp and +90 lbft of torque

So the Euro spec Cobb AccessPORT features not just those two maps but also the following purpose built maps:

  • Anti Theft (security mode, car will not start)
  • Valet Mode (reduces rev limit and power level, so car cannot be driven aggressively by others)
  • Stock Style (normal tune with only speed limiter removed)
  • Economy (maximum fuel economy mode, sacrificing performance for better fuel economy)

There are also tonnes of other extremely useful functions like:

  • Re-flashes ECU through factory Data Port (OBD)
  • Ability to uninstall and revert back to original (stock) ECU data
  • Ability to store multiple maps on unit, allows switching between maps at user’s convenience
  • Ability to read DTCs (trouble codes) from the ECU, BCM, Multi-AV, IPDM, Pre-crash Seat Belt, Meter/M&A, and Adaptive HL computers
  • Ability to clear DTCs (trouble codes) from all vehicle computers including infamous “Bonnet Light”
  • Ability to update reflash maps as improvements become available
  • Firmware is Internet updatable (new features may be added as they become available)

All up the Cobb AccessPORT is a bargain at £750 + VAT and is available immediately through our friends at GTC-R / who can be contacted through their website linked below.

Euro Spec GT-R Cobb AccessPORT Coming Soon

June 1, 2009 Comments off


Good friends of ours at GTC are assisting the testing phase for the European spec Nissan GT-R Cobb AccessPORT as of right now. Their brand new Euro GT-R has the prototype maps installed and is undergoing road and dyno testing this week. We’ve been told to expect it any moment for delivery into the eagerly awaiting hands of the European GT-R owners.

Good news for those who feel the GT-R could be just that smidge better … or even those who feel it could do with a whole lot more actually …

While you’re here you may as well check out some pics of the GTC-R development car below, nice stickers!
