New Circuit (Drift) Spec Intercoolers!

Here is another sneak peek of our new Circuit (Drift) Spec Intercooler System. The goal of this system is to not only keep the turbo boost cool, but also your engine, by directing extra air flow to vital radiators and oil coolers.

This is a definite must have item for Racers who want "more racing laps with less cool-down laps" The kit uses a carefully designed system of air ducts in conjunction with a more compact and light-weight core to provide the total balance of Cooling, Power and Weight!

It is available in the economical Type 31 LS or the super cooling of the Type 31 R -HG cores.

The Circuit Spec I/C had a power increase over the whole RPM range over the stock intercooler.
The Type 31 Circuit Spec has similar cooling efficiency of a Type 24 LS intercooler, while having the quickness in response of a stock intercooler.


The Type-31 HG Circuit Spec even shows a larger increase in torque from the lower to mid RPM, over the Type 24 LS core.
The HG model is recommended for users that want more power with extra cooling.

New SE exhaust additions for July

This month we added a few more new additions to the Spectrum Elite (SE) exhaust line.
Below we have a quick sound clip of a dual muffler SE exhaust on a G35 sedan with a V6.
And just under that we have a few more of the new applications, in a few different views; like the G37 coupe, WRX 5dr, and the Altima coupe.

These are now avaiable at your favorite Authorized GReddy Dealer.

GReddy twin 20G update on the IT 370Z


Here is a little update on the progress with the GReddy Twin Turbo project for the Import Tuner 370Z. All the mechanical parts are fabricated and complete and we have began tuning. We did notice many slight tuning differences between the VQ35HR to this VQ37HR, now that we have detected and addressed them, we think we have a pretty good hold on it now. Tuning continues tonight!

Check here for past post on this project:

R35 GTR prototype turbo kit


In addition to the 370Z twin turbo kit we are working on here in Irvine; TRUST, Japan has been hard at work on a prototype R35 GTR twin turbo upgrade kit. The test car so far, uses our new Spec R Intercooler upgrade and GReddy TD06SH-20G turbos (that are also found on our 350Z and 370Z Tuner Turbo Kits).
The two 20G's have a potential of 900hp+!
Below you can see quick tuning report from the upcoming Aug '09 issue of Option Magazine, where more testing has begun on the Garage Saurus' fully built VR engine. We are also planning some more tests on a USA spec. vehicle very soon.

(release of the turbo kit is still pending testing, no pre-orders of this kit will be accepted yet)

Review: GReddy @ MOD '09

This past weekend we were happy to attend the 2009 Mitsubishi Owners Day at the Mitsubishi headquaters. It was really cool meet all the enthusiastic Mitsubishi owners. We really appreciate all who came by. It was a great opportunity to get some more feedback on what kinds of new products we should be looking at. We are looking forward to the next meet. If you know of a meet of any sort, please let us know about it, you just might see us there. (you can email greddyusa@greddy.com)



We found it so interesting to see such a wide variety of Evos, Eclipses, 3000GTs, Galants, and Starions.


It was also a great opportunity to debut of our little RalliArt mini-project.
And we hope the winner of the Evo VIII / IX Racing Ti-C exhaust really enjoys their prize from the free Mitsubishi raffle.

Kenny from the Block on Top Gear

Many of you might already have seen the new video of Ken Block on UK's Top Gear's new season flowing around the internet, but just in case you didn't you really should. It's a great looking video, sort of a Gymkhana 2.5, if you will. We especially found the commentary by Top Gear's "Capt. Slow" James May pretty funny too... "Kenny from the Block"...LOL!
