Type1 Racing Intercooler Hard Pipe Kit for Nissan GT-R

November 29, 2009 Comments off


Flexible or rubber intercooler hoses tend to suffer with age and increases in boost pressure. It’s a safe bet that if it can expand then it will, especially when you’re running more boost than standard, and this can affect the driveability and response of the engine.

Type1 Racing are developing a neat polished aluminium hard-pipe kit to do away with these problems. This fully mandrel bent system also has an increased pipe diameter of between 63 and 70mm and comes complete with 4 layer silicon hose joiners and hardware.

All up the T1R hardpipe system beats the stock system in terms of weight also. It’s just 3.98kg total, about 2.5kg lighter than standard.

It’s due to be released in early 2010 so we’ll post back with pricing when it is.

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.
