The Titan Motorsports 2JZ billet front cover is CNC machined from 7071 aircraft grade aluminum for increased strength over the cast factory, alleviating common failures seen in our nearly 2 decades of racing. Using computer aided design we have increased material thickness and strengthened key areas of the cover for the increased stress loads applied to the tensioner and tensioner bracket preventing the timing belt from losing tension. This cover combined with our Titan Motorsports billet tensioner bracket and hydraulic tensioner delete provides for the ultimate combination to keep the engine in time and your valve train safe.
Do to the removal of the factory oil pump with this unit, it is designed for race use only on engines with external dry sump oiling systems only.
In starting with a clean slate for our VR38 engine program and developing our Titan Motorsports Billet VR38 block we came to the realization that many street cars would benefit from an upgraded lower billet main girdle. During our FEA analysis of the factory block our simulations revealed block distortion that could lead to main bearing failure and gasket failures.
A new lower girdle was designed using Computer Aided Design and analysis. The result is a product that strengthens key areas of the girdle while mating with the OEM casting, allowing the engine to withstand the abuse that the block endures while producing over 1,000hp more than the factory desired. This CAD engineered girdle is CNC manufactured from a solid block of 7075 aluminum alloy commonly found in the aerospace
industry. 7075 offers strength properties comparable to most steels while providing more corrosion resistance than some other aluminum alloys.
This billet girdle will require line boring to your engine builder’s specifications and will work with the factory 3.8L displacement or stroker applications. This design will be implemented in our upcoming VR38 billet block. Until then, anyone looking to build their own race prepped VR38 with premium parts can benefit from our experience while using the machine shop and engine builder of their choice.
Titan Motorsports has partnered with industry leading fastener manufacturer ARP to develop an upgraded crank bolt kit for the Toyota 2JZ engine. These upgraded units are manufactured using ARP 2000 material which offers a tensile strength of 220,000 PSI, over 45% stronger than the factory specified Grade 8 bolt. This increase in material strength is partnered with an oversized washer which is both thicker and larger in diameter to take advantage of the increased clamping load and to properly secure the damper to the crank over a larger surface area.
The additional clamp load delivered helps secure the harmonic damper to the crankshaft allowing it to function as designed, absorbing the unwanted kinetic energy caused by undesired movement of the crankshaft. This reduces the risk of the damper loosening from the crankshaft that can occur in racing environments where high RPMs are the norm. This bolt kit is designed to work with the OEM crank pulley, however we recommend it be paired with our Titan Motorsports Crank Damper to offer the ultimate in protection for your engine.
Leading the path to big horsepower from the VR38, we’ve found many parts that aren’t up to the task of reliably delivering performance beyond Nissans original benchmarks. Upon a resent teardown we noticed some abnormal fretting of the flywheel in the areas where it mounts to the crankshaft. This particular failure can be seen when tearing down the engine, but it also could be the reason for the engine teardown. This fretting requires replacement of the crank and/or flywheel in most situations. It goes without saying, this is a very expensive repair.
A joint venture between T1 Race Development, ARP and Titan Motorsports resulted in a custom designed and manufactured fastener to better cope with the higher torque loads requested in our GTR applications. The new fasteners are produced In ARP’s 2000 material with a black oxide finish, and require a 12 point ½” socket for assembly. The ARP 2000 material has a much higher tensile strength of 220,000 PSI versus the stock bolts rating of 140,000 PSI. The increase in tensile strength allows us to administer a higher torque spec of 140ft/lbs. We also recommend applying Blue Loctite for added insurance, it’s important that the Loctite only gets on the threads of the bolt, and not between the flywheel and crank, or bolt head and flywheel.
On March 5th we hosted our 7th Annual Titan Motorsports Open House at our headquarters in Orlando, FL. This event has grown larger than we ever could have expected it to since holding the first open house 7 years ago, when our new facility opened. Each year we do our best to give the local enthusiasts an event they can enjoy, as well as raise money for local charities in need. After calculating the numbers for this years event we raised $15,503.27 with the event. The proceeds of which will help benefit 3 charities close to our hearts: Just in Queso Foundation, Florida Little Dog Rescue, and the Arnold Palmer Medical Center Foundation.
With over 1,200 event RSVPs and 1,800 additional Interested parties through Facebook in the days leading up to the event. This was one of our largest Open houses yet. Our entire complex was filled to capacity along with nearly every available square inch surrounding where ever a car could be parked. We are already looking forward to next years event and hope to raise even more money for charity as well as providing a great place for motorsports enthusiasts to gather and enjoy our facility with the many great cars that attend. We want to thank all of our loyal fans and supporters for attending the event and continue to make it such a success year over year. We’d also like to thank our great sponsors, without them this event would not be possible:

The R35 Nissan GTR factory mass air flow sensors have difficulty reading the additional airflow
provided with upgraded turbos and aftermarket blow off valves and in high boost OEM applications. To remedy this problem, the air volume must be converted to a speed density setup requiring the air temp sensor to be moved post-intercooler and a MAP sensor installed. Titan Motorsports has
created a plug-and-play kit that resolves this problem relocating the intake air temperature sensor from the factory MAF Housing to the Upper intercooler upper pipe.
This kit is a recommended upgrade for R35 GTRs making more than 700whp or those wanting to run Vent-to-Atmosphere Blow-Off Valves. This installation takes 5 minutes and the included Plug-N-Play harness allows the car to be returned to stock. It should be noted this modification will require an ECU re-tune calibration for Speed Density, with proper calibration there is no change in drivability.
Included in this kit :
-Intake Air Temperature and Map Sensor (all in one)
– Motorsports Grade Plug and Play Harness
Titan Motorsports is now offering a direct replacement Carbon Ceramic brake package for the R35 Nissan GTR. Carbon Ceramic brakes are a popular options found on some of the best high performance sports cars and supercars in the world, so why not upgrade your GTR to these same standards.
With our carbon ceramic brake upgrade, over 60lb is removed in rotational mass. As important as the 60lbs is to the gross vehicle weight, a reduction in rotational mass improves acceleration and reduce drivetrain stress. These brakes also offer improved stopping power over the stock steel rotor setup, without the increased squeal that occurs when using steel brakes and race pads. This setup works perfect for nearly any type of performance driving, from the street to the strip to the runway these brakes offer improved performance across the board.
Provisions have been made for the factory parking brake to be incorporated into this upgrade, keeping your cars emergency brake functions as the OE originally intended. For the neat freaks out there, carbon ceramic brakes are known to produce significantly less brake dust than their steel counter parts keeping your wheels much cleaner in the process.
Included in the kit:
Front and Rear Brembo Carbon Ceramic disk with custom GTR fitment Hard Anodized Billet Hats, Front and Rear Carbon Ceramic Specific Performance Brake Pads, and Billet Hard Anodized Caliper Spacer Brackets
*This kit requires the rear calipers to be clearance for installation, detailed instructions can be provided.

Titan Motorsports is no stranger to big boost, with many of our turbocharged engine packages producing in excess of 50lbs of boost, making sure all that pressure reaches the combustion chamber becomes an important driver of horsepower. For over 15 years we’ve used advanced fluid coupling solutions in our race cars and using that experience we’ve managed to the best of that technology into our new Pro Boost clamps.
Machined out of aircraft grade aluminum, these easy to install are rated to hold over 150psi of pressure while remaining easy to install. The inner coupling surface comes pre-beveled allowing for a cleaner weld surface on the intercooler piping and durable O-rings that slip into the machined aluminum boost collar with minimal effort. The outer shell clamp is secured using recessed double Allen design that is both aesthetically pleasing and prevents the shell from accidently dislodging, a problem prevalent with other units that use spring clips or quick releases for closure.
These clamps come in a standard black hard anodized finish with an engraved Titan logo are available in 2.5”, 3”, 3.5”, 4” and 5” inch diameters.
