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.
Aeromotions Inc. announced the launch of their new GT-R R35 splitter. Over a year of computer modeling, analysis, and track testing led to the unique design. While the top of the splitter appears normal, the bottom of the splitter has CNC cut venturis to feed air into the stock GT-R front venturis. This system works to enhance the great engineering already present in the R35 GT-R, while eliminating some of the factory under steer.
The three-piece splitter is constructed from Amarin Fiber, a revolutionary composite that has strength-to-weight properties similar to carbon-fiber, but adds much greater impact and wear resistance. The piece is perfect for endurance-racing applications. The splitter mounts directly to the frame and air-dam with the included stainless steel hardware. Installation is simple, and individual segments of the splitter can be replaced in the event of damage. Made in the USA. Off-Road use only.

PPG is one of the first to manufacture this HEAVY DUTY helical synchro gearset for the new R35 GTR. This very popular gearest is a direct replacement for the existing gearset found in the R35 and no re-programming is required.
Utilising the standard Nissan ratios the set has been designed with wider components and undergone PPG’s special heat treatment that enables the already strengthened gearset to operate at optimum performance levels This set is designed for street and circuit applications and also offers quiet noise operation for everyday driving.
The PPG 1st gear helical synchro upgrade kit is an excellent choice for providing an added boost to any standard R35 GTR gearset. With a wider gear size, upgraded tooth profile and heat treatment, the 1st gear upgrade provides a much stronger and more powerful gear capable of handling much higher levels of horsepower. The upgrade is a direct fit and no computer re-programming is needed.
