SEMA 2009: Password:JDM Nissan GT-R Debuts Wide Front Fenders at Savini Wheels Booth

November 4, 2009 Comments off


Well we already saw that the Password:JDM front fender project is completed but now we can release the photos of the fenders fitted up on the Password:JDM demo car that’s finally back together.

In these photos we see the final version of the fender along with the “sharks tooth” additions to the front bumper to make the whole deal line up properly. You can see it does away with the side markers also.

I got to visit Password:JDM HQ in Pico Rivera, Los Angeles last week to see how the fenders are made. The whole process is fascinating from concept to clay model to welded prototype to mold and finally to their carbon fibre production line. One thing I understood from my time there was that the guys don’t tolerate product that isn’t perfect. Quality control is key to their great reputation.

The wheels fitted to the GT-R are part of the new Mono da Forza range by Savini wheels which should start shipping this December. The right side are SM2 in Yellow/Black combintation. Custom finishes are also available and all in sizes of 18 – 22 inches. On the left side, we have the SM3 style wheel in Red/Black, again custom finishes are available in sizes of 18 – 22 inches. SM2 and SM3 are both 1 piece forged wheels.

Password:JDM Dry Carbon Wide Front Fenders for Nissan GT-R Final Release

October 14, 2009 Comments off


Well enough sneak peeks and previews it’s time for the real deal. Password:JDM have spent an unprecidented amount of time developing the perfect widebody front fender out of 100% dry carbon fibre for your Nissan GT-R. These kevlar reinforced dry carbon fenders took 200+ days of development. From a spark of an idea, to painstaking clay modelling to final product.

The main goal was to assist in eliminating understeer in the powerful but heavy GT-R. To achieve that goal the guys at PWJDM wanted to fit a full 20×11 inch wheel fitted with a Toyo Proxes R888 315 wide tyre up front. The only way to do this was to go wider.

So that’s what they did, a full 38mm wider at the front without changing the lines of the car. Fender vents were also widened to help get air out of the wheel well area and the front side markers are replaced with carbon inserts. The whole fender is also signicantly lighter that stock. Overall I’d have to say this is one of the most highly successful aero / body projects for the Nissan GT-R to date.

Price is $3899.99 and as noted previously, the Password:JDM GT-R will be at SEMA in Las Vegas from 3rd – 6th November 2009 if you want to get up close with a truckload of carbon.

October 8, 2009 Comments off


SEMA 2009 is almost upon us and it appears that a few Nissan GT-Rs are being prepared to be tricked out for the show. In about a month’s time we’ll be in Las Vegas for the annual event that runs from the 3rd to the 6th of November.

I will be there and so will the North American GTR Owner’s Club (NAGTROC) who will be hosting their own booth in the North Hall Lobby showing Nissan GT-Rs in varying states of tune from members and sponsors alike.

Speaking of NAGTROC, the guys have organized a special rate for suites at the super luxurious Palazzo Hotel at just $229/night. If you are attending SEMA or want to get in on this exclusive deal contact bookings at 866-263-3001 with group code VNAGT. You must book by MONDAY 5PM PDT 12th October. Then for your included SEMA pass contact me or Chuck @ via email.

NAGTROC and GTRBlog will be getting together for a meetup (or a few meetups actually!) to eat, drink and talk GT-Rs so feel free to get in on this as well by posting a comment below or just stay tuned for the details of the meet place and time.

It’s going to be a great SEMA this year with quite a few surprises in store so start planning your attendance now.

Password:JDM have started their plans. As you can see here their finished dry carbon wide front fenders are fitted and their demo GT-R is off to the paint shop for a respray. These front guards are easily wide enough to swallow 315 wide Toyo Proxes R888s at the front so you can kiss understeer goodbye.

Password:JDM Dry Carbon Fibre Rear Seat Delete for Nissan GT-R

September 25, 2009 Comments off


The GT-R is one of those very few supercars that is not only fun as a daily car but practical as well. You get 485hp a big trunk and four seats thrown in to make it a pretty damn good deal all round. Many of us however will use those rear seats as either somewhere to put the helmet when were off to the track or something else even less glamourous than that. There’s the option to remove the seats but then what?

Password:JDM have again hit the sweet spot between form and function with their take on the solution for this. A rear seat delete that leaves you with two lightweight and attractive rear 100% dry carbon seats.

The main feature points to note are:

  • 100% Dry Carbon Construction
  • High-strength, extremely lightweight, organic design
  • Tecnocraft ‘T1’ Racing Seat aesthetic design elements
  • Remove, replace, drop-in and install in minutes
  • Deletes OEM seatbelt hardware
  • Locks into place using factory mounting locations (washers/hardware provided)
  • Just under 7lbs for the pair.

Pricing was not available at the time of writing but to register your interest let the guys know by contacting them via their website linked below.

When developing a true function-over-form product for the R35, sometimes the end-result happens to be extremely aesthetically pleasing as well! We had to put our thinking caps on when bringing a real “game changer” rear seat delete alternative to market… the premise for the design and build was to delete the rear seat and delete all the stuff required for the rear seats. this premise came about since we find the factory rear seats near useless by design. there was hardly any leg room, so why even bother. reducing as much weight as possible without making this car look bare and naked has been our agenda since day one. The PWJDM Rear Seat Delete project has followed this directive to a T.

To maintain and forever perpetuate the infamous PWJDM baller reputation, we definitely had to build them out of 100% dry carbon fiber and mold them to fit both the body and the car like a glove. Building upon the successes of the Tecnocraft ‘T1’ racing seats ( from the premium side of Password Industries, Inc. We also kept in mind the interior “race bucket seat” theme and wanted a continuation of this effort for the rear seat deletes. what’s shown here is a true testament to PWJDM’s commitment to the platform as well as our abilities as a true tuner and developer of great products.

The first thing to notice would be the organic curvature of the rear seat delete, which provides structural strength and rigidity over just a simple flat design. Secondly, they have been molded in such a way to provide a tight, drop-in fit, and have eliminated the rear passenger seatbelt hardware – yes, you are correct, this weight-saving upgrade is strictly for off-road use only!

Password:JDM Release Ultimate Front Lip Spoiler for Nissan GT-R

July 16, 2009 Comments off


It’s a big call but when you see what this front lip has to offer I’m sure you’ll agree that this is the ultimate in aero parts for your GT-R’s front end.

The Password:JDM front lip is constructed from dry carbon fibre reinforced with honeycomb matrix that’s designed to be extremely durable. This is no museum piece and is designed for guys who are going to drive their cars and occasionally, you know, meet a speed hump or, god forbid, drive up their steep driveway.

This lip is also completely modular, and has loads of options to choose from. You can fit strakes, brake ducting, skid plates and add on splitters to enhance the look and, more importantly, the functionality of the lip. Above you can see it in it’s raw form and below with the add on splitter fitted.

We mentioned brake ducts earlier and that is going to be interesting for a few of you. The GT-R sure could use some cooling on the brakes and this offers it in spades. The full carbon brake ducts again bolt onto the underside of the lip and force air onto the calipers

If strakes are your thing then Password:JDM give you that option as well with a set that easily bolt up to enhance downforce at the front.

So I’m pretty sure many of you will agree on this being the ultimate front lip and if you’re keen to get one head over to the Password:JDM website to contact them. We don’t have pricing or delivery dates yet but we’ll let you know as soon as we do.

January 17, 2009 Comments off

Loads more photos of the latest product from Password:JDM have been posted today. We can get a sense of the elevation now and how it looks on the car. The elevated rear spoiler sits 60mm higher and 50mm further back than the standard wing and is constructed completely from dry carbon. Weight is reduced significantly over the standard wing although a final reduction value is not known at this time.

Expect to pay around the $2,500 mark when the wing is finished in the very near future.

Password:JDM Elevated Dry Carbon GT-R Rear Spoiler

January 13, 2009 Comments off

One of the more sought after GT-R aero modifications are carbon fibre rear wings. Password:JDM are currently putting the finishing touches on one of their own. Featuring full dry carbon construction, a slightly elevated height (elevated 60mm), slight offset towards the rear of the car, an integrated third brake light and an option for gloss or matte finishes this is going to be one hot seller.

The Password:JDM rear wing promises an increase in rear downforce while being lighter than stock. The rear spoiler will bolt straight onto your factory support elements.

The effect is an OEM-“ish” dry carbon wing with the benefits of the OEM third brake light and lightweight, aerodynamic functionality.

Expected price is around the $2500 USD for this US made, top shelf quality wing. Images here are of the pre-production model but expect final delivery dates soon.

October 28, 2008 Comments off

I mentioned these in a post last week and I’ve finally gotten around to downloading the photos that the Password:JDM guys kindly put up over on NAGTROC. These snorkels guide air from directly behind the GT-R’s front grille into the standard airboxes resulting in more cold air being available at high speed.

These look to be quite well thought out and made from dry carbon they’re attractive and durable as well. Too bad you’ll rarely ever see them tucked away when they’re installed.

These snorkels are available now from Password:JDM’s online store linked below. Price is $599 USD.
