While we’re waiting vain for the GT-R Spec-V to reach American soil, Nissan is busy testing out the SpecM. Carscoop shot this spy video of Nissan putting the SpecM through its paces on the Nurburgring in Germany. The exhaust note is music to my ears! Check it out below.
When the new Nissan R35 GT-R was released its transmission became a topic of controversy as some speculated it wasn’t up to the task of all the horsepower Nissan blessed it with. Since then Nissan has addressed the problem but if you want a little more insurance Greddy announced on their blog that they’ve just released a DCT (Dual Clutch Transmission) cooler for Godzilla. The set up even comes with a special duct to send air to the cooler’s 13-row core. This is good news for GT-R owners out there who like to drive a little harder than the user manual suggests.

Here is a short flick from SP Engineering that features the Nissan R35 twin-turbo kit by Greddy which allowed them to build not one but two record-breaking GT-Rs! Its worth the time to check out; trust me!

Godzilla has conqured the drag strip! Greddy’s blog tells the tale of two R35 GT-R’s equipped with SP Engineering’s Greddy-based SPE900 and SPE1000 tuning packages breaking the 9 second barrier at an Arizona drag strip about a week ago. This officially makes the pair the fastest street driven R35 GT-R’s in the world right now. Check out the video below for the record breaking passes.
I just saw the news on COBB Tuning’s blog that AMS Performance’s Nissan GT-R equipped with their SR850 performance package broke the 10 second mark which officially makes it the fastest R35 GT-R in the world right now. Check out the record breaking pass below.
This is just a quick shot of one of two Nissan GT-Rs that will be running in the GT1 class in the FIA GT championships this year. One GT-R will be run by a swiss racing team while the second is the SumoPower.com sponsored GT1 GT-R. Mmmm its soooo smoootthhhh.

Yes, I know I just dropped a hype video on you guys a second ago but I found this shorly after and it is equally worthy of a post! This is a “commercial” (I say its more like a short film) featuring SP Engineering’s SPE750 turbo upgrade kit for the R35 Nissan GT-R. For a shop that sells/installs parts all day they’re pretty good film makers! Check it out below.
This is big news if you happen to live in the big state of Texas. Mayday Garage just announced that Japanese tuning legend “Smokey” Nagata from Top Secret will make an apperance at the Import Reactor car show. Not only will he be there as a guest but he is going to personally tune 20 Nissans over the span of three days! So what is the occasion? Well, Top Secret is working on a new stand-alone ECU dubbed “Top Secret Process” and the marathon tuning session is meant to prototype the new unit here in the states. If you own a Nissan and live in the Houston area I suggest you do whatever you can within the boundaries of the law to make sure you are one of the lucky 20 cars to get tuned by Smokey! If you really are that young and don’t know who Smokey is or how he got his nickname then check out the video below.
Even though this is a JDM Hype Video you certainly do not need to understand Japanese to get some enjoyment out of it. I’ll give you the important details. You are about to watch Manabu Orido take HKS’ GT600 Nissan GT-R Time Attack car on a hot lap around Fuji Speedway. You want to have your volume up when he hits the straight…trust me..
Let’s face it as great as the Nissan R35 GT-R is, its backseats are pretty much useless unless you are younger than 10. Despite this fact they are inundated with leather and plushy stuff under said leather. Nice to look at but utterly useless! What’s the solution? Rip them out and replace them with these FRESH carbon fiber seat deletes by Password:JDM. These deletes were carefully shaped to perfectly fit the contours of the rear seats and are made from 100% dry carbon fiber. I wonder if there is a way to transform these things into bar stools?
