GT-R's meet at PSI 006

Work continues on the two Nissan GT-R's that are currently at PSI.

GT-R's at PSI

The white one is waiting for its upgraded transmission to arrive from ShepTrans.

The new rebuilt transmission will be able to easily handle much more power than the stock transmission. With the future upgrade plans and the owner's driving style, this strengthened transmission offers reassurance that the the transmission will last.

While the GT-R was at PSI waiting for the transmission, the team at PSI worked on other aspects of the car.

The backseat area was removed to allow for the installation of some lowering springs to give this GT-R a more aggressive look.

Under the hood, a Cobb Tuning intake system and a pair for HKS blow off valves were installed.

Both GT-R's received a pair of Forge Motorsports wastegate actuators.

The other GT-R is the testbed for the PSI custom fuel system. This fuel system will feature larger 1000cc injectors, Radium Engineering Fuel Surge Tank, Radium Fuel Pressure Regulator, upgraded fuel pumps, a large plethora of Russel fittings and hoses, and a few other components. The goal is to provide a better fuel system solution for high horsepower GT-R's.
