Customer Cars : R35 Nissan GTR Upgrades at Titan Motorsports

July 20th, 2017 Comments off

Titan Motorsports Nissan GTR Builds – From Street to Fully Tuned

At Titan Motorsports, we have a long track record of building high-performance Toyota Supra’s and being the industry leader in 2JZ performance. More recently Godzilla has been on the attack, with our tuning shop filled to capacity with a healthy mix of the usual Supras and a ton of R35 Nissan GTR that have produced their own incredible results. Our current GTR builds cover full spectrum from daily driven street cars with basic upgrades to runway attacking half mile track cars.

With 2017 nearly halfway complete we wanted to take a moment and showcase some of our customer and shop builds to illustrate Godzillas potential from mild to wild.

2010 Pearl White R35 with TMS650 Stock Turbo Bolt On Package

    

The first customer R35 we’d like to showcase is this 2010 Pearl White R35 which receive a full bolt on TMS650 package. This package was bundled together with:

– 1000cc Injector Dynamics fuel injectors
– Deatschwerks 265LPH fuel pump
– TiAL blow-off valves
– Titan Motorsports intake system with an intercooler

With all these modifications and a tune developed by Titan Motorsports, this R35 sits at a comfortable 605HP; adding 50+ horsepower from the stock layout. Usually, we recommend installing an exhaust system with modifications this lite but this Zilla was already equipped with a Fabworx titanium exhaust. The owner operates a powder coating business and used the car as a showpiece for this business by coating the piping and intake manifold in a metallic copper high temp coating. The contrast of colors between the bolt on parts, the black accents surrounding them, and the Pearl White engine bay makes this car stand out with a unique flare.

 

Black Switzer Performance R35 Updated

This particular 2010 GTR was one of the earliest Switzer Performance builds, the team at Switzer are known for their flawless upgrade packages and this car is no differ. Being an early Switzer P800, this Obsidian Black R35 was showing a bit of its age when it arrived for a fresh transmission upgrade by ShepTrans. While the transmission was out being upgraded we took the time to service the car and update some of the aging items to current technology before retuning the car to make the most of the changes.

– Injector Dynamic’s new 1050x fuel injectors
– TiAL blow off valves
– Full Blown 270 fuel pump

 

Not One Daily Should Have All That Power

             Eric Kerwin of Titan Motorsports wanted to build a daily that would crush any punk that rolled up on him.  Pushing just over 1,000HP, Eric’s 2010 Pearl White R35 GT-R is the epitome of the ultimate daily. When Eric bought his R35 years ago he immediately went for the biggest bang for his buck. At one point, there was a stock VR38DTT in Erics R35 but after Titan got their hands on it there is nothing stock about it. The new Titan 3.8L Engine is built with:

– Titan Motorsports H11 Main Studs
– Titan Motorsports H11 Head Studs
– Titan heads with STD Ferrea valves, Beehive single springs, and titanium retainers. Ferrea valve seals, guides, and locks
– Titan Stage 3 cams with 276 duration and 11.76 lift
– Titan Lightweight Battery Kit
– Titan Crank Damper
– CP Custom Billet Forged 9.5:1 Carrillo Pistons
– Manley Rods Turbo Tuff rods
– King Engine Race bearings in STD size
– Full Blown 1100HP turbo kit with GTX3071R turbos on factory manifolds with upgraded Forge Motorsports Internal Wastegates.
– New OEM Oil pump

 

What Else Has Titan Been Working On?

Aside from R35’s coming in for bolt on performance parts we also have R35’s receiving custom fabricated exhausts, intakes, and piping, all being developed at Titan Motorsports. Over the years of getting to work with these R35’s, we’ve started seeing areas in the car that Titan can make an innovative difference in. We will continue to share with you what going on with these R35 builds here at Titan Motorsports.

Titan Motorsports R35 GTR Billet Main Girdle

July 28th, 2016 Comments off


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 R35 GTR Speed Density Conversion Kit

February 25th, 2016 Comments off

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 releases R35 Nissan GTR Transmission Brace

January 14th, 2015 Comments off

The Nissan GTR has proven to be a phenomenal build platform for tuners since it’s debut in 2008, however with increased horsepower its achilles heel has been the GR6 transmission. The factory GR6 aluminum casing have been found to flex under heavy loads, a problem amplified by the use of stickier tires causing mis-shifts or catastrophic failures of the gear box.

The Titan Motorsports GTR Transmission Brace is CAD designed, laser cut from a combination of 1/4 and 1/2 steel, and Tig welded in a structural jig then powder coated. The mount incorporates multiple points of contact with the factory castings at crucial points to reduce torsional flex under load. In addition to multiple points of contact in the differential and axle portion of the gearbox, the brace features integrated solid mounts that replace the factory rubber mounts and providing an additional reduction of flex. Installation requires removal of the transmission from the car, taking this into account it can still be completed in a matter of hours and requires no permanent modification to the vehicles chassis.

April 22nd, 2014 Comments off

The Titan Motorsports Nissan GTR performance camshaft kit features a complete set of (4) 276-10.6mm lift camshafts optimized to improve the power band of upgraded VR38 engines. This combination is mild mannered enough for street driving while providing additional performance if utilizing upgraded turbos. The Titan performance camshafts provides a great improvement in mid-range power without sacrificing gains at high RPMs. Depending on your turbocharger choice and supporting upgrades, gains of 25-120HP can be achieved.

This kit has been tested in many VR38s producing well north of 1300hp across the globe. We do suggest upgraded valve springs when using this camshaft kit, however they are not required.

Titan Motorsports Nissan R35 GTR Street Intercooler Kit

May 14th, 2013 Comments off

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.
