There are certain performance cars that boast a reputation that speaks for itself. The name plates of ZR1, Supra, and Skyline garner respect in the performance car world. If you are lucky enough to own one of these cars you know how brutal, yet refined the performance can be. However, there are some that just need to go a little bit faster. If you are lucky enough to own a GT-R you can call up All Wheel Drive Motorsports and they can help you build a record smashing monster.
The GT-R’s heritage began with the Skyline GT-R that had two separate productions runs. During these production times the Skyline, nicknamed “Godzilla” was a terror on and off the track. The all wheel drive platform mixed with a twin turbo six cylinder motor could flat out fly on the street, or the track. Nissan brought the GT-R back in 2008 without the Skyline name. The new GT-R has a 3.8 liter DOHC V6 that still sports twin turbos and an all wheel drive backbone. In 2008 the GT-R was sporting 480 HP from the factory, the 2012 model rolls out of the dealership with 545 HP in stock form.
All Wheel Drive Motorsports is no stranger to the GT-R platform. Working with the car and tuner Sean Ivey they were able to coax a nice nine second pass out of the car. After some additional tweaking All Wheel Drive Motorsports clicked off a 9.77 at 139 mph in the quarter mile. This impressive time was achieved with stock turbos and a basic mod list that includes an ETS Downpipe, midpipe and 3 inch intake. A 2012 OEM ported inlet was used along with ID200 injectors, SIR fuel pumps, and E85 Fuel. Pulling off a nine second pass with basic bolt-on parts is amazing, imagine what is possible with more work!
