I apologize about the lack of updates guys, most of what we are doing now is measuring, clearancing, and waiting for parts.

Unacceptable! This should be done by now!























I can't wait for the final results.

While we wait for casting we are finalizing all the bits and hardware needed for the kit including intercooler piping, Intake piping and downpipes. Here are some more updates as we further develop the kit on Tim's GT-R.



















Once we get the cast samples is we will be within weeks of getting the kit up and active on Tim's GT-R while Chucks waits on his built engine, roll cage and other supporting mods needed to send his car into the stratosphere

are you guys worried about the chassis flexing at all w/ this much power?

or does the gtr not need any reinforcement like seam welding, etc

i see that it has a cage but, is that enough??

i cant even imagine daily driving a 1000 whp car lol

This car will be getting an 8 point roll cage and from what we have scene in our past experiences, there should not be a problem at all with chassis flexing.

Man this thing is amazing! Your ability to R&D and mock up products like that with CAD is impressive. I've always wanted a GTR and one day I will have the pockets to do something like this and then it will be on.

Nice work guys!

Its good to see that some of the higher end shops are starting to be able to afford CAD software. What program are you guys using? I haven't touched a 3D CAD/CAM program for 3+years but that looks like ProEngineer to me.

Awesome job! Just wondering why you went with 304? 321 would be a better fit for this applicaion. All that heat in those tight spaces. I am an engineer at a company that builds parts for jet engines. We work with all the super alloys (Hast X, Inco 718, Waspalloy.) I'm really thinking you may want to switch to 321 Stainless. It is not that much more expensive but it will for sure give you better corrosion resistance at the high temps it is going to be seeing. Just a thought.... All in all an awesome build! can't wait to see it when it is done!

Wow, amazing work as always.

When I finally bite the bullet and chop my roof off, I'm driving all the way to IL to have you install your carbon fiber one. Or maybe I said that in reverse(wouldn't want a convertible WRX).

I thought this too, and heck i'm an electrical engineer, i'd be interested in the reason for choosing a 304 instead of the "traditional" 321 for high temp app.

Then again, i work on aircraft cabins instead of engines.. lol

Amazing build, *Subscribed*

Have you done any kind of analysis on the manifolds? The load seems to be unevenly distributed on the (the front of the one side in particular). If the one side is supporting more weight, it could lead to premature cracking, especially when made out of 304 as opposed to a material designed for high heat. Have you thought about going exotic for these? It doesn't seem that cost is an issue for GT-R owners...... It may be overkill, but something like Ti or Inco would be cool in that application.
