Xavier's 2014 GT-R SBD 1200 Build

Posted by Ed Susman on

Here is a bit more basic GT-R build we finished recently. This is a 2014 GT-R that's set up as a show car but wanted some go to go with it. So we built the shortblock using Manley pistons and rods, sent out the transmission for a Shep 1k upgrade, installed the SBD1200 turbo kit, T1 fuel system (rails, regulator, ID2000cc injectors, flex fuel kit), AMS Omega dual brushless fuel pump system, 4 port boost solenoid, and some GSC S2 Billet cams in otherwise stock heads.

After assembly and break-in miles, we tuned the car on flex fuel. This is the first time we have attempted to run a big turbo setup on un-ported heads and stock un-ported intake manifold and throttle bodies. Although we didn't quite hit 1000whp, the results are still very impressive considering the limitations of the setup. This is now a solid low 9 second car, all while looking pretty!

Here are some shots of the car:

And here is the dyno on E85 at 35psi:
