Tommy Kaira High Performance Titan Big Throttle Bodies for Nissan GT-R

September 15, 2010 Comments off

Tommy Kaira has quietly launched their latest performance product, a set of upgraded throttle bodies for the Nissan GT-R. The Tommy Kaira units offer upgraded airflow by improving the OEM throttle bodies in several ways.

Firstly they have honed and polished the throttle body interior. The net result is a 1.5mm enlarged opening with a smooth surface to reduce turbulence around the interior.

Secondly they’ve redesigned the butterfly from scratch. This titanium replacement butterfly reduces the need for the clunky OEM pivot so air flows more smoothly again through the throttle.

All up Tommy Kaira claim more than 20% improved airflow through these with of course improvements to engine response that come along with it.

Pricing begins around the 117,600 yen mark per set provided you send your OEM throttles in. Without the exchange, expect to part with 243,600 yen for a set.

Tokyo AutoSalon 2010: TommyKaira GT-R Buildup Continues

January 4, 2010 Comments off

The tension builds as we get nearer and nearer to Tokyo AutoSalon 2010. I leave for Tokyo this weekend so personally I’m pretty damn excited too. About the show, seeing old friends but also about checking out what TommyKaira have been up to with their GT-R.

On the news front, you can see a little more work has been done getting the parts on the car. A full custom TommyKaira brake kit has also been developed along with a suspension setup from Quantum.

We know that the guys at TommyKaira also plan to splash red leather liberally around the interior, including on the seats which will be replaced with some SpecV-esque Recaros.

Stay tuned for a full spread of photos from the mornings press preview at Tokyo AutoSalon on the 15th of January…
