Forged Performance Announce the VR38 FP1 Short Block for Nissan GT-R

April 21, 2010 Comments off

It keeps getting more interesting in the built VR38 world with another newly announced complete, built, short block hitting the market in a big way. This time hailing from much closer to home for many of you, Marietta GA, comes the Forged Performance VR38 FP1 short block for Nissan GT-R.

The Forged Performance FP1 Shortblock strengthens the GT-R engine for maximum reliable power! We start with a BRAND NEW VR38 block casting, and all new OEM parts. The OEM rods and pistons are replaced with Pauter forged rods, and our own spec Arias Extreme Duty pistons. The block is precision CNC machined to accept a new cast iron cylinder liner. The cast iron liner allows for the long term reliability and exceptional strength when running forged pistons at very high power levels. The is the same proven strategy used in numerous 1500whp+ builds in the exotic car world. After the liners are fitted the cylinder walls are bored and honed to .0001 tolerance and the block is decked flat. The liners are purposely left .001 above the deck for headgasket seating and block expansion purposes. This block is engineered to handle 1000whp+ easily.

Forged Performance Guide to Nissan GT-R Boost Control

April 27, 2009 Comments off


Sharif from Forged Performance has taken time out to post up an “Everything You Wanted to Know…” thread over on NAGTROC regarding boost control on the Nissan GT-R. A great idea I though as one of the first things many a new owner thinks about is more power right… Therein is one of the beauties of forced induction.

The GT-R is no pussy cat to begin with but a tweak of the boost courtesy of a ECU tune, boost controller or actuator upgrade can open your eyes to a new level of power, even on the standard turbos.

If more-boost-done-properly is something you’re chasing for your GT-R you should check out this thread and if you have any questions ask away. Sharif and Forged Performance are recognized as being well ahead of the curve in terms of tuning the GT-R and have most likely come across your situation in the past.
