When Scott brought us his 2009 Nissan GT-R, he had a very clear vision for what he wanted: a lightened-up, super-responsive, 1,000bhp+ daily-driver, with a focus on reliability. And it goes without saying, that’s a vision we were beyond excited to execute!
The core of the build is centered around a reinforced VR38DETT featuring Magnus Motorsports short block & cylinder heads, Alpha Performance camshaft set, Ferrea Racing Components valve train, ARP CA625 cylinder head studs, Alpha Performance engine oil cooler system, with OEM Nissan gaskets, seals, fluid, pumps, timing components, and all the odds-and-ends to refresh the long block, Alpha Performance Alpha-9 turbochargers & inlets drawing air from Got Boost Performance 3.00″ air intakes & speed-density conversion, Alpha Performance ECBS kit, Extreme Turbo Systems Race intercooler system, TiAL Sport 50mm QR blow-off valves, with a GT1R air/oil separator providing a cleaner air charge, ETS down-pipes mated to the existing mid-pipe & exhaust system, with fuel system featuring T1 Race Development rails & lines, Alpha Performance Omega brushless single-pump system, Injector Dynamics ID1700X fuel injectors, SBD Flex Fuel system, with power transmitting through a Jacks Transmissions built GR6 and Driveshaft Shop rear axles & hubs, all topped off with a beautiful pair of super-lightweight Technocraft T2 dry carbon fiber seats, Alpha Performance carbon ceramic brake rotors, with a set of Home to Volk Racing ZE40 Time Attack wheels wrapped in Mickey Thompson Performance Tires & Wheels ET Street S/S radials putting it all to the ground.
Once Jared wrapped all the mechanical work in the shop, Matt strapped the R35 down to the rollers for Vlad to perform a Flex Fuel calibration via COBB Tuning‘s Accessport. The results? Precisely where we wanted to land, coming in at 905.96whp & 839.65lbft on E85, 800.98whp & 684.76lbft on 93 octane, with each map offering usable power all over the curve! Needless to say, Scott’s vision was fulfilled, and will keep him grinning ear-to-ear every single day.
