Keeping inlet air temperatures low is a key to making consistent horsepower with any turbocharged application. To combat this problem in the Nissan GTR we have developed our new Titan Motorsports OE replacement Intercooler. The foundation for our intercooler upgrade start with a massive 22”x10”x4.50” core from an industry leading US manufacture. The core is then surrounded by CAD designed end tanks which are laser cut for consistency are TIG welded in custom fixtures to prevent warping.
The Titan Motorsports street intercooler kit features 2.75” diameter inlets and outlets and are bead rolled at our facility to prevent the charge pipes from blowing off at higher boost levels. This intercooler is designed so that the factory Nissan intercooler pipes or any other factory replacement piping system can be utilized. As a result there is no need for additional piping to be supplied with this kit. The plug and play nature of the Titan street intercooler allows the unit to be installed without modifying the factory bumper or any other factory panels, and allows the factory bumper support to remain intact. All necessary hardware and instructions are included with the core.

We just returned from TX2K13, the annual Super meet in Houston, TX. What originally started as a Supra meet over 10 years ago has blossomed into a Mecca performance enthusiasts from around the country. This year marked the changing of the guards, as what was once marketed as the annual “Supra Meet” was overrun by GTRs. Sure there were a plethora of clean Supras, Porsche, Lamborghini, Ferraris and late model domestics, but no car seemed as popular as the Nissan GTR.
Thursday we attended the GTRLife night party at Wild Wing Cafe and first got our glimpse of how popular the GTR would be at the meet when the entire parking lot was filled with Nissans latest Super car.
The dyno event took place at Hennessy’s facilities which features dual dynos, one RWD unit and and AWD unit. The RWD dyno had a sensor failure early in the afternoon which prevented many of the heavy hitters from being able to put down the big numbers they intended. While the drag strip has always been the official landmark event for TX2K, everyone knows the real action happens on the street. Houston’s finest have caught on and had their fleet working overtime trying to prevent the street races, however many went down without a hitch. The Omni hotel was overwhelmed with ever inch of it’s parking lot filled with high power cars just looking for their next victim. A quick search for TX2K on YouTube will reveal plenty of entertaining videos and events in “Mexico” for those interested in seeing what goes on after hours.
This year marked the first year in some time that we did not bring our Copper Supra, or any cars for that matter. The Supra was tested earlier this spring yielding the 201mph trap speed, however conflicts with our race team, as well as track conditions for the weekend forced us to make the tough decision to leave the car at home. We’re also currently in the process of doing a full upgrade to our GTR house car, and felt rushing it for this one event wouldn’t be the correct thing to do for this development process. We’ll get an earlier start next year and look forward to bringing out our full arsenal, as well as customers to enjoy what has become the can’t miss event if you’re a performance enthusiast. A big thank you to Peter Blach for putting blood sweat and tears into making sure this event is everything it can be, we’re proud to sponsor such a fantastic event.
As experts in import and turbocharged performance we’ve often been asked our thoughts on the Nissan GTR platform as it so closely resembles a modern version of the Supra in terms of it’s tune-ability and fan fare among the performance community. We’ve been building and installing parts for these cars since they were released but felt it was finally time to purchase one for the shop to demo and further develop parts for the hardcore enthusiast. In true Titan fashion we decided not to purchase just one GTR, but rather 2. The two cars have already been extensively upgraded, one will remain a more street-able version that our customers can relate to, the second will be involved in an extreme full build.
First up is our Sales Manager Eric Kerwin’s 2010 Nissan GTR in Brilliant White Pearl. The car features the first set of HRE’s new C106S, a conical version of their new 6 spoke 106 wheel. The wheels were finished in a unique matte gold center and gloss gold lip to provide extra contrast against the brilliant pearl white paint. The factory run flats were removed in favor of Michelin Pilot SuperSport tires in 285/35/20 335/30/20 sizings, a tire upgrade we feel is one of the best bang for you buck upgrades available for the GTR currently. The car was lowered using KW’s sleeve coil over kit which allows the ride height to be adjusted while maintaing the factory electronic suspension controls. We also installed our popular Titan Motorsports Bolt in GTR roll bar to keep the car legal at the track.
With the suspension and wheels taken care of, some extra power was needed to help round out the car and make Eric’s daily commute a bit quicker. Speed By Design Intakes, Midpipe, Downpipe and Exhaust were installed on the car. We also added a set of Speed By Design upgraded fuel pumps and Injector Dynamics ID1000 injectors before tuning the car with a custom Titan Motorsports tune delivered through the Cobb Access Port. Eric’s car was designed around delivering basic performance upgrades that any GTR owner can have installed in a weeks time or less providing for significant improvements in all aspects of the vehicle without sacrificing the ability to be daily driven. Nero’s gray GTR current features a nearly mirror image of the upgrades to Eric’s car but will be undergoing the knife soon as it will get a fully built complete with our Titan Motorsports Stroker kit, upgraded turbos and fuel system in hopes of becoming king of the streets.

Titan Motorsports introduces our cylinder head and valve train upgrade program for the Nissan GTR and it’s VR38 engine platform. The VR38 engine platform is a very robust platform to begin with, however utilizing cylinder head technology gained from our years of racing and building turbocharged engines, Titan Motorsports was able to improve the factory cylinder heads. Computer aided CNC porting allows exact dimensions to be tested and replicated across all 6 cylinder ports, achieving equal airflow for all 6 cylinders. These results can not be produced or replicated using traditional hand cylinder porting, and allow for more exact ECU tuning and additional horsepower as a result of the additional airflow.
The valvetrain was produced in partnership with industry leader Ferrea to ensure the valve and spring package would operate harmoniously with the increased airflow provided from the CNC porting. This upgraded cylinder head utilizes an upgraded OEM valve size and dual spring combination in conjunction with titanium retainers to maintain the lightest valve train possible without sacrificing durability. Reducing the valvetrain weight allows the engines redline to be raised and consistent and reliable engine revolutions in the 9000+ range to be achieved.
The factory head flows 280CFM on the intake side and 202 CFM on the exhaust side at 28″ test pressure. With our CNC port and upgraded valvetrain the result was 332 CFM on the Intake side and 242 CFM on the exhaust side at the same 28″ test pressure. The complete package results in an astounding gain of 52CFM on the intake side and 40CFM on the exhaust without any sacrifice in reliability or drivability. All flow tests were completed on the latest 1020 Super Flow bench using advanced data collection which allows for a more accurate reading over the Super Flow 600 it replaces (which typically reads 10-12 CFM higher).

The GTR is known for being a technological wonder of an automobile that is a bit on the heavy side in terms of curb weight. One of the best ways to get rid of some of this unnecessary weight is the installation of a lightweight battery in place of the factory version which weighs in at over 27lbs. The Titan Motorsports GTR Battery kit was developed as a complete lightweight battery solution for the GTR which includes a Lithium Pros Lithium Battery, and lightweight engineered mounting bracket. The included bracket is CAD designed and laser cut from 6061 Aluminum to allow the battery to be installed in the factory location. No permanent modifications to the vehicle are required allowing for an easy installation that is completely reversible in the event the car is returned to stock. Included with the kit is a state of the art Lithium Pros L680 Lithium Powerpack which offers all the power requirements necessary, while weighing in over 20lbs lighter than the factory battery.
The L680 Lithium Powerpack is fully alternator compatible and weighs only 5 lbs 8 oz. The performance vs. cost of this battery makes it a great value in a lightweight racing battery for road course, asphalt circle track, and dirt track with alternators. This 12V Lithium-Ion battery has 25 minutes of reserve and a total capacity of 11Ah. It can deliver 800A max and 125A continuously which is more than enough to start engines up to 500 cu in. and supplement the alternator’s output. This battery features fast cell balancing for safety, long life, and maximum capacity. A unique feature of this battery is the completely solid state MOSFET protection system including automatic low voltage, high voltage, in coming current limiting, over current, and short circuit protection.
