Our good friend Charlie is back for more upgrades on his MY12 GT-R.  You might remember this car from a previous blog update in which we installed KW Sleeve kit as well as a few other upgrades which can be found here.

For this next visit Charlie wanted to achieve some quick efficient power.  On the to-do list this time around was
  • TiTek 90mm down pipes
  • TiTek mid pipe
  • TiTek race exhaust (previously installed)
  • Sprayitracing 1000cc injectors
  • SPE Tune
With these upgrades his goals were not to only make horsepower, but more importantly needed to have response throughout the entire power band.

**Also note Charlies new look for the new year, exterior modifications consist of Volk Advan rz-df,  STILLEN front lip and STILLEN side skirts.

We hope that Charlie enjoys his new setup, and has fun at the track.

Niiiice!

How do the sprayitracing injectors compare to ID1000's?

Charlie, give us an update on how it performs at the track!  Any cooling upgrades necessary now?

This was our first time using these injectors which Charlie brought to us.  They seem to work well so far just like the ID injectors.

Wow looks great, I knew Charlie had a 2012, but between the wheels, side skirts, lowering, and exhaust one of the best looking cars I have seen. Im sure the new found power and response feels good too.

:thumbsup:

Will do! Can't wait to take it out and see how it runs now after all the upgrades :thumbsup: I'd say I'm just at the point where additional cooling is still optional, but may come in handy down the road for longer road courses. We'll see soon enough :)

Thanks for the compliments and all your help with the injectors Bill! Car feels even better now with all the new power while retaining the OEM response!
