Product Release: R35 DCT cooler

In addition to the introduction of our new Evo X SST trans cooler, also have a great cooling system for the DCT (Dual Clutch Transmission) found on the R35 GTR

It features our famous Blue (inner-fin) large 13row core mounted in front fender. It also includes a FRP divided air duct, similar to the OEM unit on the other side of the car for maximum cooling.

Installation is easy thanks to specialized GReddy R35 trans oil block. The internal thermostat insures quick fluid warm-up and consistent oil temps, and does not tax the standard coolant system.

Carefully designed light-weight -14 hard-lines & braided-lines allow for a minimal routing lengths and maximum flow. Completing the kit are all the necessary mounts, hose fitting and 3 piece billet flanges with o-rings.

Also available as an option, is our GReddy R35 Window Washer Tank option. This is ideal to keep you window washer working even with use of either our DCT or front-mounted Intercooler kits.

CZ4A Circuit Spec Cooler Kits

GReddy is proud to announce the production of some much need products for hard driving Evolution X, with two new Circuit Spec Cooler Kits. The V-mounted SST (MR -twin clutch transmission) and Engine Oil Coolers increase the efficiency of the OEM coolers, by increasing the fluid capacity and cooling surface area, while controlling and improving air-flow to the cores.

The factory SST transmission found on Evolution X MR are known to trigger a "Safety" limp mode when the internal fluid hits 140C (284F,) which is not difficult to do during hard driving.

The GReddy SST Cooler Kit uses an additional independent system with it's own compact 160l/hr pump for superior cooling. It is easily installed by connecting to the existing fluid "Filler" and "Drain" ports on the transmission case. (NO machining required.) The V-mount arrangement is mounted in the front left inner fender under the factory unit (and to fit it, it also includes a new aluminum I/C outlet piping.) Another benefit, is that vital areas, like the Radiator, are not covered. The kit also includes carefully designed Inlet and Splitter Ducting to evenly divide and control airflow through both the GReddy and OEM cores, while the Outlet Ducting helps increases flow. The V-mounted 12row (-08) GReddy core takes advantage of the airflow under the vehicle to draw out even more air through the core (,while the stock core has to fight with the air turbulence of the spinning wheel in the wheel well.) Also included are precise patterns for trimming of the under liner.

Tested at Tsukuba Circuit, Japan, with one test driver, and two identical CZ4A Evolution X s with SST transmissions.
After about 16min of circuit driving, the factory equipped car reads 140C and the ECU engages a 2000RPM limiter.
The GReddy equipped Evo, drove on for 30min, without any adverse effects to performance.

Mounted in a symmetrical configuration as our SST Cooler the GReddy Circuit Spec Engine Oil Cooler Kit mounts in the right inner fender under the factory core. Like our other Circuit spec kits this V-mounted 14row (-10) core uses our signature inner fin technology for high efficiency. This greatly helps improve the durability of the engine oil and in turn the life of the engine. The kit adapts to the factory cooler and routes the oil in series, for an simple install. The kit also features carefully crafted Inlet, Splitter, and Outlet Air Ducting to increase flow to and through both the GReddy and factory coolers. Light-weight Nylon-braided hose add to the upgrades on this kit; as does the necessary trimming patterns for a perfect fit.

Tested at Tsukuba Circuit, Japan, with one test driver, and two identical CZ4A Evolution Xs with SST transmissions (1 Stock, and 1 with both GReddy Circuit Spec Coolers.)
The GReddy equipped Evo show consistent
engine oil temperatures in the 90-100C range, even under hard circuit driving.
While the factory car showed already showed over 130C (266F) engine oil temp., when the SST triggered the safety mode at 14min.

* Both kits can work with OEM fog-lights, with air ducting trimming.
* GReddy SST cooler can be activated by a manual switch or by the GReddy MSS (Multi Switching System.)
