Trust and Garage Saurus: GReddy TD06-20G Kit Dynos 834ps @ Wheels

August 12, 2009 Comments off


We’ve been following the progress of the Trust GReddy TD06-20G turbo kit for a while now, thanks to Garage Saurus, and today we’ve learned cold hard numbers on what the kit can do.

On Trust Japan’s dyno, running 22 psi of boost and completely maxing out the Bosche injectors they’ve managed to pull off a 834ps (822hp) run at all four wheels. Other components upgraded for the run were the intercoolers, utilising the Trust GReddy Type06-R Intercooler kit.

Quite an upgrade from where they started with “just” the 650ps output from Garage Saurus original basic performance upgrade components back in January.

Garage Saurus Tune the Nissan GT-R SpecV

June 23, 2009 Comments off


Given the opportunity, you would tune this too. Not content to have the quickest production GT-R available, this SpecV owner has booked it in for a few basic performance upgrades. Garage Saurus have complied and installed a few choice upgrades from their range such as the Trust / GReddy full titanium exhaust, Garage Saurus Suction Piping Kit, Blitz twin blow off valves, Garage Saurus upgraded wastegate actuators, and to control the boost a HKS EVC.

To complete the picture, ECU tuning will beging this week. With this being the first SpecV worked on, they expect a few speed bumps but nothing serious. While tuning a set of Garage Saurus Bosch 750cc injectors may make their way on to this car as well to beef up the fuel system. I think this car is in good hands! Should be interesting to see the final power figures.

Nissan GT-R Injector Flow Test Comparison and Future Upgrades

May 31, 2009 Comments off


More and more injector upgrades are being placed on the market to meet the fuel demands of the more powerful GT-Rs out there. There hasn’t really been much publicized testing or even acknowledgment of the standard injector capabilities versus after market items though. Garage Saurus have made it pretty simple for us with a nice visual you can check out below.

In their testing, the standard GT-R injectors flowed equal to a 570cc injector. You can see below the comparison with SARD 650cc injectors which flowed around 660cc for this test and BOSCH 750cc injectors which actually seemed capable of flowing up to 820cc in testing.

As a side note, Garage Saurus liked the BOSCH injectors so much they will be using them in a big injector bolt-on upgrade for the GT-R which they’ll sell you for 24,000 yen a piece, or 144,000 yen all up. Don’t all rush out and by them though because the GT-R still needs something to control these big injectors. The standard ECU is out of it’s depth with injectors of this size.

Garage Saurus Intake Piping Set

April 21, 2009 Comments off


Officially the Saurus Suction Kit we think the Intake Piping Set sounds a little better to the average English speaker who might need to explain to the wife what just got delivered in the unassuming large brown box. Nonetheless it’s a full intake hard pipe kit made from 70mm diameter aluminium piping. It features a set of Blitz SUS metal air filters as well as a Blitz twin blow off valves. The kit also comes with silicon hose joiners and upgraded hose clamps.

Part of the Garage Saurus Spec660 package, this kit including joiners, clamps, filters and BOVs will set you back 248,000 yen and is available for order soon. These images depict the prototype version so may look slightly different for the production version.

Garage Saurus Lightweight H-Beam Conrods for Nissan GT-R

April 19, 2009 Comments off


Garage Saurus have got the first sets of these H-beam forged connecting rods completed now as they make their first steps towards improving the internals of the VR38DETT’s bottom end. The H-beam design allows for a similar or improved strength over the forged I-beam standard rods with a significantly lower weight. In this case Garage Saurus weighed the standard conrods at 725.6 grams a piece while their H-beam items are just 582 grams each, a saving of 143.6 grams each or 861.6 grams of reciprocating mass total!

Each rod set comes fitted with ARP rod bolts and is rated for 800 ps. These will form an integral part of Garage Saurus’ upcoming engine upgrade set.

Update: Garage Saurus conrods priced at 168,000 yen per set.
