SouthSide Performance 65mm Billet Throttle Bodies for Nissan GT-R

June 19, 2009 Comments off


SouthSide Performance have been tackling the GT-Rs throttle bodies in a quest for a larger opening and a more responsive drive. SouthSide aren’t the first to go down this path as even Nissan has recognized that the base model GT-R could do with some improvement on the throttle body side of things when refining the SpecV’s version. These should be quite a bit larger though.

These billet items should be released soon as they’re currently in the final testing phases.

May 28, 2009 Comments off


Southside Performance say they have had a lot of success with their upgrade clutches for the Nissan GT-R’s GR6 DSG gearbox today in their latest update. Running them in their development GT-R with over 700hp, they’ve managed to reduce any clutch slip issues significantly. Over 30 sets have found homes with GT-R owners worldwide to date.

Done properly, clutch upgrades like these wont only improve the GT-R’s ability to get power to the ground but should lead to lower transmission operating temperatures under load and thus less transmission maintenance overall. Priced from $1,399 they also come with a 1 year warranty, you can check out the full press release here.

Combine these with other upgrades to the transmission like the PPG 1st gear and input shaft upgrade of the PPG 1st-6th gear upgrades for a more robust gearbox all round.

One weak link down in the quest for big horsepower GT-Rs…
