Brazilian customer orders up a flex-fuel GT-R with as much as 600 horsepower.
Squeezing 530 horsepower out of a twin-turbo 3.8-liter V6, Nissan has done a lot with the Nissan GT-R. But there's still more potential to be extracted, prompting a wide range of aftermarket tuners to lay their hands on the Japanese supercar known as Godzilla. The latest is Jotech Motorsports, which has tuned this GT-R for a customer in Brazil. The South American country has an abundance of ethanol available, so Jotech equipped the Nissan supercar for E85 flex-fuel capability.
By adding new injectors, spark plugs, fuel pumps, intake manifolds, air filters and an HKS exhaust and tweaking the ECU, Jotech has managed to raise output to between 550 and 570 horsepower (measured at the wheel) on ordinary 93-octane pump fuel, or 580-600 hp on E85. All that for $10,250, including installation, but not including the donor car of course. That's some good bang for your buck right there, and we're sure the Brazilian customer must be happy with the results.
