November 18, 2010 Comments off

Dodson Straight Cut Gears for GTR

SpeedForSale hosted a grand opening for their new facility in the Atlanta, GA area last weekend and managed some impressive attendance from customers and fans. With a parking lot full of GT-R, Supra, Viper, Corvette, and many more niche sports cars, everyone had the opportunity to chat with their old friends and make some new ones, while also checking out the new shop, equipment, and projects going on at SpeedForSale.

Glenn from Dodson Motorsport was in attendance at the event, and he had some of their upcoming new products on hand to display. The most exciting of these new parts, which have been in demand for quite some time now, are the new custom gear ratio sets available in both standard helical cut and the new heavy duty STRAIGHT cut option. Standard gear ratios are also available in the Straight Cut flavor.

These parts are currently being tested on Dodson’s Tarmac Rally car to ensure quality and reliability prior to being released and will be ready to ship in 2-4 weeks.

SpeedForSale is one of only a select few Dodson Certified Pro Dealers and installers in the world. These new Dodson GR6 items are now available for pre-order on their webstore. Click here to pre-order.

AutoSport Wiring ECU Patch Harness for Nissan GT-R

December 3, 2009 Comments off


If you’ve ever had to splice into an ECU wiring harness to hook up some gadget or other you’ll know how heartbreaking it is to cut open the nice loom and hack it all to pieces. It’s pretty worrying for those that still hang on to some semblance of a warranty too because if Nissan happen to catch your handy work you might have some ‘splainin to do.

Wiring harness patches offer the perfect solution to this problem, they offer a passthrough matched set of plugs and sockets with a short length of wiring in between for all your patching adventures. Remove the harness extension and you’re back to stock!

This latest version, just released, now features coverage for all three sockets on the GT-Rs ECU giving you access to any signal that might pass it’s way.

T1R Exhaust Pricing, Release Date and Comparisons for Nissan GT-R

March 10, 2009 Comments off

The Type1 Racing exhaust for the Nissan GT-R is due in less than a months time now and what should be final pricing is up online already. We also have a new dyno chart we hadn’t seen before comparing each T1R Exhaust stage from the turbos back.

The T1R 90R Cat back exhaust in stainless will set you back $1,890 USD. It’s manufactured in SUS316 grade stainless and offers a 90mm main pipe split into two 70mm rear pipe sections. It will go on sale in April and should be available for pre-order now.

The T1R Y-Pipe also goes on sale in April this year. It’s made from the same SUS316 grade stainless steel and features a pair of 76.3mm pipes combined into a single 90mm diameter pipe. Two flex joins insure it will not suffer cracking under stress at high temperatures. The price? Just $619 USD.

We’ll have a video of these come April when SpeedForSale get their hands on one installed on their own GT-R.

Thanks Jeremy@SpeedForSale for the update.

Type1 Racing’s Turbo Outlet Pipes Tested

February 21, 2009 Comments off

Type1 Racing finished off their complete turbo back exhaust solution with the release of these turbine outlet pipes recently. These de-cat outlet pipes are made from SUS316 grade stainless and are 76.3mm in diameter and are completely tig welded.

They also ship with the T1R O2 fix to prevent the “Check Engine Light” condition some guys report after fitting aftermarket de-cat front pipes. Check after the jump for a photo of that installed.

Fitted together with the T1R 90R exhaust and mid-pipes on the AJ Racing GT-R the guys dynoed the car and measured a 60hp and 50 lb/ft gain over the standard exhaust. The front pipes alone accounted for 10hp and 11 lb/ft of torque at peak with as much as a 30 hp improvement just from the front pipes in the midrange.

Since there’s no catalytic converters, these pipes save almost 7 kg over the OEM versions. When released in early April 2009 they will go on sale for $1050 CAD or around $795 USD.
