Forge Motorsport Radiator Reservoir for Nissan GT-R

September 4, 2009 Comments off


From the guys who brought you the, now ubiquitous, Forge Motorsport upgraded wastegate actuators for the GT-R comes the newest addition to the GT-R tuning parts lineup. The Forge Motorsport radiator header tank for Nissan GT-R.

This header tank has about twice the volume of the standard item and is manufactured in 3mm aluminium for strength. It features internal baffles and is up to just about any high pressure radiator cap you can find including the Nissan OEM SpecV cap rated at 1.8 bar.

No price yet, but expect this to pop up soon at all Forge Motorsports distributors.

Cheers to Ben @ GTC-R / for the heads up on this one.

Carbing Aluminium Radiator Reservoir for Nissan GT-R

I am a big believer in doing away with what I find is one of the big let downs under the GT-R’s hood. The ugly white plastic radiator reservoir. I’ve seen a few carbon covers and yes even a few other aluminium versions but I like this one the best so far.

This Carbing item is designed to be a bolt on affair and is manufactured to top quality standards. I mean look at it, for something as simple as a radiator tank they sure make it look slick.

It takes your stock type radiator cap or you can opt to upgrade for a few bucks more and choose your own favourite brand high pressure cap. It’s priced at 49,350 yen.

Featuring a 1.5 inch core thickness, the SSP radiator is a full lightweight aluminum item that is designed as a direct replacement, straight fit upgrade for the GT-R.

Cooling the VR38 is of top priority for many owners who push their cars to the limit on the circuit and a radiator is logical place to start. Hit up the full press release after the jump…
