Titan Motorsports Race Only 2JZ Billet Block

November 14th, 2017 Comments off

Titan Motorsports has been the industry leader in race 2JZ engines for over a decade. We started our 2JZ engine program in 2000 and immediately began to dominate the NHRA SC Street Tire class with our MKIV Supra, but we never could have imagined that same engine program would lead to breaking the 5 second barrier at over 250mph. Throughout our journey into the record books we’ve experienced our fair share of failures and our team has painstakingly developed solutions to these weak links in our quest to engineer the best 2JZ on the planet. The result of dedication to perfection and 2JZ drag racing supremacy has led us to this moment, the release of over a decade of development and what we consider the foundation for the ultimate race 2JZ, the Titan Motorsports Billet Race 2JZ Block.

Starting with our class leading factory iron block 2JZ race program, which already put out over 2,000HP, we partnered with Expert Racing in Brazil to develop the latest chapter of our renown engine program. With our collaboration, Experts team of engineers used advanced computer simulations to review weak points in the way the factory block dealt with the extreme loads being sent throughout its structure. This information allowed us to engineer the Titan Motorsports Billet 2JZ specific to our purpose, drag racing supremacy. Utilizing computer simulation to test multiple iterations and an additional 2 years of real world testing, we were able to create the final CNC produced block shown today.

The resulting block is stronger than the OEM Toyota version it replaces, and saves more than 50lbs in the process. For maximum bearing life, the 7 main caps were designed out of forged steel with cross bolted main caps designed to handle in excess of 4,000HP without sacrificing serviceability. The cylinders feature custom-designed Darton© sleeves consisting of extra thick walls meant to withstand extreme cylinder pressures while also allowing for a user configurable displacement up to 3.5 liters. All hardware has been produced by industry leader ARP, bespoke to this engine package, including 9/16” to 1/2″ custom head studs to the dual L19 main studs with cross bolt mains. We’ve also included an optimized Dry Sump Oil Pan, designed specifically for this block, to aid in oil scavenging and increased service life.

For over 15 years we’ve taken great pride in our racing accomplishments here at Titan Motorsports, pushing the limits of the 2JZ and helping cement its legendary status. This newly designed Titan Billet 2JZ has enabled us to raise our performance goals during the past 2 years and power many of the world’s quickest and fastest drag cars including EKanoo Racing, La Criatura Racing, Blue Destiny and many more. This block was designed as a race only unit with no water jackets or provisions included to allow additional mass in key areas for strength. At this time, we have no plans for production of a street version with these provisions as the factory unit has shown to be more than adequate. Confident we’ve produced the meanest 2JZ available on the planet today, confirmed by testing on the track and off, we’re happy to release this product to the rest of the world. We can’t wait to see how much further our customers can push the envelope in 2JZ drag racing.

Complete Block Package Includes:

• Titan Motorsports Billet Block
• Custom Darton Sleeves
• ARP L19 Main Studs
• ARP Cross Bolts Mains
• ARP 9/16 to ½” Custom Head Studs
• Billet Steel Main Caps
• Deep Dry Sump Oil pan

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 Removable Parachute Mount

October 10th, 2016 Comments off

It doesn’t take much for a tuned Nissan GTR to trap over 150mph at the drag strip, unfortunately doing so requires a parachute on NHRA and other sanctioned tracks. Titan Motorsports has developed a removable parachute mount for the R35 Nissan GTR that allows the car to meet the requirements and be quickly removed for street use in less than 5 minutes with a single bolt. Designed in CAD before being laser cut and CNC bent, our removable chute mounts are manufactured from lightweight chromoly that is TIG welded in a custom built fixture.

The mount replaces the factory rear bumper support and utilizes the existing OEM support holes for secure mounting. Provisions have been incorporated in the chute mount to allow the existing foam bumper support to remain preventing the bumper from sagging. A CAD drawn cut template takes the guess work out of cutting the access hole allowing you to accurately measure and cut your OEM bumper to clear the chute mount. This hole is covered by the license plate for easy concealment when not in use.

The Titan Motorsports removable parachute mount ships ready to be installed finished in your choice of brilliant silver or gloss black powder coat finish.

Titan Motorsports 2JZ Billet Front Cover

August 10th, 2016 Comments off

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.

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 ARP 2000 2JZ Crank Bolt Kit

July 20th, 2016 Comments off


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.

Titan Motorsports / T1 Race Development R35 Nissan GTR Flywheel Bolt Kit

May 23rd, 2016 Comments off

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.
