R35 GTRs- Your Supercar Now Has a Tuning Solution in Michigan
We know how important it is for your investment to be taken care of. R35 owners are a breed of car enthusiasts that demand the best performance offered in the most reliable package- all while their car is carefully worked on with no corners cut. This is why Michigan GTR owners are bringing their cars to BCP.
This 2013 Solid-Red GTR came into BCP bone stock and left a completely different machine. Producing full-bolt-on numbers isn’t the most difficult take but delivering 600+whp results with reserved noise levels (stock cat back) and assurance on the road require careful tuning techniques.
First, lets look at the mods and before and after numbers.
- COBB Catted Downpipes
- HKS Midpipe
- COBB ‘Big’ Air Intakes
- Injector Dynamics ID1300 injectors
- Got Boost Flex Fuel Kit
- COBB Accessport V3
- BCP Custom Pro-Tuning by Alex with full Flex Fuel, Rolling Launch, 0-6 Map Switching on the fly, and Traction Control
The gains were very impressive. A neck-snapping 204 lb/ft of torque was gained with much faster spool up enhancing the driving experience. The horsepower department was no slouch either, with peak gains of 123 wheel horsepower, but over 170 wheel horsepower gains were seen in the midrange- where it really matters.
What brings this setup together full-circle is the added features of the COBB tuning solution. We utilize launch control with transmission tuning to ensure the best performance without over-stressing the expensive drive line components as well as COBB Traction Control, which is COMPLETELY different from any traction control you’ve most-likely experienced. The ECU-Based traction control allows for on-the-fly tuning adjustment (on it’s own, of course) to allow just enough wheel spin to keep the engine loaded and the car accelerating at maximum potential. The result is the ability to mash the gas in 1st gear and be able to put down 600+ torque without the car jerking and shutting down, or completely spinning the tires off. We finish off the added features with rolling launch, which holds the car at the exact speed you want in the exact gear you want allowing you to floor the gas peddle and build boost while remaining at a constant speed. The result is a perfect launch like you’ve never felt before with almost zero delay or “turbo lag”. See below for a rolling launch demonstration.
We look forward to offering a high-quality parts/installation/tuning experience for you and your GTR. –Alex
