Here is our official Press Release for the Kit.

Easily add an extra +175HP! to a 370Z

Introducing the latest addition to GReddy’s line of “Tuner Turbo Kits,” the 370Z Twin-Turbo system boasts an impressive 175 horsepower increase at a mere 6.4psi of boost (That's a 535hp 370Z!).

With additional engine work and tuning, this tuner kit has the potential of making 850 plus horsepower (over 500hp increase!) just as we were able to achieve on the GReddy Twin Turbo 350Z HR.

from XDC-REMIX this Sat.

Over the weekend, we were at the very 1st XDC / REMIX event at Irwindale Raceway. Thank you all who stopped by.

It was fun watching the action of the new up-and-coming drivers to the sport of Drifting. Congratulations to drivers: 1st- Dave Briggs, 2nd- Quoc Ly, 3rd- Jeff Jones

When the Drifting comp ended, we though it would slow down, but in fact that is when the REMIX area really grew. Then prime attention went towards the REMIX Car Show, with it's tons of Import models and finely tuned cars. We look forward to seeing both show grow over the year. Look for them when they com to your town. See: XDC & REMIX


for more drift photos, you can check out our friends at Wrecked Mag too.

New X-Large R35 GTR Intercooler Kit

Here is another sneak-peek for our Blog readers, we would like to introduce the new GReddy X-large Type 29 R-Spec Intercooler Kit for the R35.

It measures a huge H302 x L710 x D115, plus you get that classic "side to side" front-mount intercooler look in the front bumper. (It also does not hamper air flow to the upper grill area.)

But not only is larger and better looking, it has great performance to back it up. On our test car with twin 20G turbo upgrade kit it gained over 20 additional hp at 1.6kg/cm2 (22.75psi) over the gains with our other intercooler upgrade (from 704whp to 725whp and 671ft-lb to 694ft-lb)









The Type-29 Rspec R35 Intercooler Upgrade also showed it can really cool thing down. With 136 C charge air coming in to the intercooler, it left at only 37.2 C coming out. That's 99 C cooler ! (210 F,) with minimal back pressure.













We will soon release an update with the official part number and pricing soon.

New S2000 Circuit Spec Oil Coolers

In addition to our superior GReddy "inner-fin" Oil Cooler cores, we have been working on improving efficiency of the Oil Cooler through the use of Aerodynamics.

In our new line of Circuit Spec Oil Cooler Kits, we have tested many configurations on and off the track to increase cooling with the same size cores.

For example in our new S2000 AP1/AP2 Circuit Spec 10row Oil Cooler Kit, we use carefully designed ducting to increase air flow through the core. Not only by forcing more air through the core with inlet ducting, but with specially designed outlet ducting, it takes advantage of the motion of airflow from underneath the car to pull even more air through the core. This provides increase cooling and efficiency.




Besides the new Circuit Spec engine Oil Coolers, look for our new Autotrans coolers for other popular modern vehicles like the GTR and EVOX MR coming soon...
