HKS really has a handle on tuning the VR38DETT engine in the Nissan R35 GT-R and is now knocking on a genuine 1000 bhp power output!
As part of this process the technicians at HKS in Japan have uncovered the major restrictions on the VR38DETT engine and are rapidly developing top quality components to improve matters. And their latest release is a great case in point – a new high performance plenum (called the High-Flow Surge Kit) which is designed to equalise the intake air volume across all six cylinders of the VR38DETT motor, while boosting throttle response and the air flow demands of a 1000 bhp engine.
Here are the key facts about the HKS High Flow Surge Kit for the Nissan R35 GT-R:-
- Cast plenum that’s seperate from the VR38DETT’s intake manifold
- Larger diameter ports and different port shape to suit high power engines
- Plenum volume optimised for engine reponse rather than top end bhp to ensure a good spread of power
- Funnel design in end tanks of the ports to optimise air flow from the sides of the plenum to increase air volume
- Allows reuse of stock air temperature sensor, adaptors, breather pipe, connecting pipe
Fitment of the High-Flow Surge tank is typically well thought our by HKS – it’s a straight bolt on job without the need for cutting, crimping or any other intrusive procedures that might detract from reliability on what’s not exactly a cheap car…
And that’s why HKS has also developed a Twin Injector Pro Kit for to suit the new plenum. This includes a specially designed fuel rail and other components to suit the easy installation of additional injectors for high powrr VR38DETT engines.
HKS doesn’t include injectors in this kit, but it’s been designed to accommodate individual preference for secondary injector sizes. HKS includes adaptors to suit the stock R35 GT-R injectors within the kit and these can be replaced to suit the chosen injector preference.
The prices for these top quality HKS components are:-
HKS Nissan R35 GT-R High-flow surge tank £3625.00 plus VAT.
HKS Nissan R35 GT-R Twin Injector Pro Kit £1545.00 plus VAT
HKS Nissan R35 GT-R High flow Surge Tank Full Kit £4250.00 plus VAT.

Wavetrac® – the ultimate Nissan 350 / 370Z limited slip differential – now on sale at Torque Developments plc
Torque Developments plc announces a Wavetrac® limited slip differential for manual transmission versions of the popular Nissan 350 / 370Z coupe models. Designed to greatly improve traction by reducing wheelspin, the Wavetrac® differential for the 350Z / 370Z is a more advanced design than any other LSD on sale today, offering a superior driving experience for the discerning Nissan owner who enjoys frequent high performance driving or trackday use.
What makes the Wavetrac® Nissan 350 / 370Z differential different? To best understand how the Nissan 350 / 370Z Wavetrac® unit is truly different from the other gear differentials on the market, you first have to understand the primary problem that the Wavetrac® LSD solves – the ‘zero-load’ condition.
Zero axle-load is a condition that occurs during normal driving, but creates the most noticeable problems when driving in extreme driving conditions, such as trackdays, when one drive wheel is nearly or completely lifted (often in aggressive cornering). In these conditions, all other gear differentials will loose drive and behave like a factory ‘open’ diff’.
The Wavetrac® unit for the Nissan 350 / 370Z is designed specifically to overcome this problem, thanks to the innovative, patent-pending, Wavetrac® device located in the centre of the differential. During zero-load or near zero-load conditions the Wavetrac® device responds allowing the axles (and therefore each side gear in the diff) to start to turn at different speeds.
This speed differential causes the Wavetrac® device to step into action: Precisely engineered wave profiles are placed on one side gear and its mating preload hub. As the two side gears rotate relative to each other, each wave surface climbs the other, causing them to move apart. Very quickly, this creates enough internal load within the Wavetrac® to STOP the zero axle-load condition. The zero axle-load condition is halted, and the drive torque is applied to the wheel on the ground (the gripping wheel) keeping the power down and the car driving forward in a controllable manner.
The Wavetrac® is the only differential that can automatically add more load internally when it’s required. In the case where both wheels are on the ground during zero axle load, such as during a transition to deceleration, the Wavetrac® device is able to prepare the drivetrain for when the zero torque condition stops, eliminating the delay seen with ordinary gear diffs. What this means for you as a driver is that power is delivered to the gripping wheels for more time and in a more constant manner, making you faster and improving stability. The Wavetrac® truly is different – and its innovative features can make a real difference to your Nissan’s performance.
The Wavetrac® advantages – ensuring the best for your Nissan 350 / 370Z It’s not just the Wavetrac®’s performance that’s different, the Wavetrac® Nissan 350 / 370Z is produced differently. Here’s the key Wavetrac® features:-
* Internally, the Wavetrac®’s gear tooth forms are optimised for strength and improved oil film retention over competitor designs
* The Wavetrac® gear package is smaller, reducing overall mass, yet is more durable, since particular attention was paid to the tooth strength – perfect for high torque conditions
* Attention was also paid to the side gear/axle interface, putting as much material thickness as possible in this critical area – most important when power levels get high
* The Wavetrac® Nissan 350 / 370Z LSD uses high strength 9310 steel gears
* Wavetrac® uses case hardened, billet or forged steel housings for longevity
* ARP® fasteners are used throughout – we specify the best
Wavetrac®’s manufacturing tolerances and finish requirements meet or exceed all OEM standards. All Wavetrac® differentials are built in American plants operating to ISO9002 and TS16949 standards, with quality control systems that verify components at every step as they travel through the manufacturing process.
So if you appreciate the best in performance and quality limited slip differentials for your Nissan 350 / 370Z, you’ll appreciate the Wavetrac®.difference.
Carrying part number 44.309.181WK the Wavetrac® limited slip differential for manual transmission variants of the Nissan 350 / 370Z is available now from Torque Developments Plc, priced at £950.00 excluding VAT.

The Nissan R35 GT-R can suffer from high differential oil temperatures when under high load conditions such as circuit driving on trackdays. These excessive differential oil temperatures may affect the lubrication properties of the oil and/or the LSD’s performance, potentially causing damage to the differential unit.
Hence why HKS has developed a Diff Oil Cooler Kit for the Nissan R35 GT-R to solve these problems which helps reduce the differential oil temperature, while maintaining LSD performance and preventing transmission oil degradation.
HKS Nissan R35 GT-R Diff Oil cooler features: ・ Oil Cooler Core Size: 200×132×48 (cooling fin,) with a core that was designed specifically for R35. ・ Core installation position is inside the R35’s rear undertray. HKS has designed a special low drag air duct to let air into the cooler’s core for efficient cooling. ・ The air duct is made of CFRP to match the factory Nissan rear under tray. Countersunk screws provide flat surface for improved appearance. ・ Highly durable AQP Racing Hoses are used for oil piping. ・ HKS original Oil Pump is included in the kit for reliable operation and accurate oil flow maintenance. ・ Relay box, harnesses, and ON/OFF switch to install the oil pump are included in the kit. In-house testing by HKS Japan at the Fuji International Speedway showed that the differential oil temperature dropped by approximately 37℃. The result also showed that the DCT oil temperature dropped by approximately 5℃, and coolant temperature by approximately 3℃.
The HKS Diff Oil Cooler for the Nissan R35 GT-R is priced at £1875.00 plus VAT. Delivery is expect in October 2011. TO order now please click on:- http://www.tdi-plc.com/catalog/differential-cooler-p-19148.html
The 4WD system on the Nissan R35 GT-R is electronically controlled, with the front torque distribution being determined by driving conditions, but on highly tuned cars the front / rear torque split can lead to excessive oversteer. The HKS ATSC optimises this for improved high load / high speed stability and performance.
The HKS Active Torque Split Computer enables users to correct the front torque distribution for optimal performance driving, when oversteer can occur during high load driving due to lack of front torque. By enabling a proper front / rear torque distribution, drivers can make full use of the engine’s power output, partcularly on tuned R35 GT-R’s.
Therefore, ATSC is recommended for use on vehicles with high power GT570/600/800 specifications or similar.
The HKS ATSC R35 GT-R system can operate at 4 different levels. The user can easily identify the profile through the flashing LED light and switch between them in real time.
Installation is made simple with the plug and play harness which can connect and disconnect easily to the Nissan E-TS unit under the driver’s seat. Installation time is approximately two hours.
The HKS ATSC controller is active on the R35 Nissan GT-R above 50km/h and when the brake is not applied. Therefore, it will not lead to instability from standing start or during low speed driving. To buy this product now, please click on:- http://www.tdi-plc.com/catalog/atsc-p-18851.html
