Staying competitive in the extremely advanced R35 GTR performance market requires effective research and development as well as an intricate understanding of the VR38 engine. Our turbocharger offerings for the Nissan GTR reflect a combination of extensive turbocharger specific design experience, and GTR build and tuning experience from one of the experts in the segment, Bill Bowering and the Independent Speed Shop.
Each GTR turbo kit is built to order, and includes detailed and specific application work for exact compressor and turbine match and a perfect balance of response and all-out power. Adjutment and optimization of all aspects of these turbochargers is possible to adapt to any power output.
While some offer upgrades built around the OEM journal bearing IHI cartridge, we feel it best to utilize our ceramic ball bearing cartridge design, featuring M50 bearing races and silver-plated 4340 chromoly bearing cages, to ensure durability at elevated pressure ratios and rotor speeds. All options for the GTR avoid journal and thrust bearings altogether.
Our unique bearing housing design is available with either cast-iron or Aluminum alloy, and has dual coolant port orientation to allow fitment of the OEM water lines. This cartridge also includes twin piston rings on either end of the turbocharger, guaranteeing leak-free sealing.
Our SM1000/R kit, utilizing both the OEM turbine housing, manifold, and compressor housing, can interface with an otherwise stock engine bay. However, flow enough for 950whp on E85 through two 51mm compressor inducers when required. Response, as well as low end torque, remain excessive for those with upgraded engine and transmission setups.
Moving up From there, our all-out Stock Manifold based option utilizes 4" inlet, Ported Shroud compressor housing along with a carefully matched Mixed-Flow turbine wheel. The 58mm SM1200/R turbochargers are specifically designed to ensure flow rates are maximized within the physical limitations of the turbine profile without compromising turbine volute rigidity and crack resistance at high temperature. For those looking to maximize performance available from the OEM manifold and turbine volute, a 61mm Variant is available to support 1500 BHP.
All of our turbocharger kits are built to order to meet your exact requirements and specifications. Our current lead time is 5 weeks. Please email email@example.com for more information.
