SP Engineering: Ray's (Peak Completions) R35 GTR

By now, you are probably familiar with Ray Hofman. If you don't, simply put, Ray Hofman is an avid car enthusiasts who wants no less than perfection with his cars. Therefore, he entrusts SP Engineering with modifying his cars. We have worked on his R35 GT-R a couple times in the past. His first setup, back in August of 2009, consisted of the HKS GT570 kit. After a short while, he sent his R35 back for a SPE750 upgrade. You didn't think he would stop there, did you? Now he is back for a total revamp. Performance wise, he is upgrading to a Godzilla package, the best of the best that SP Engineering offers.

What Ray's Car use to look like:

The power plant itself out of the car:

Engine attached to the subframe ready to be dropped in:

Some cosmetic work to help the car look the part that it's taking on with the installment of SP's Godzilla package. Ray's car received a Satin wrap which gives the car more a sheen rather than the matte black wraps you typically see.

Some interior shots:

Ray's GTR is equipped with Bride Vorga Japan racing seats. The Vorga Japan was an ideal seat for Ray (he stands approx 6'4) as it fits larger frames.

Ultimately Ray's goal for his GTR was to put it simply "beef it up"; satin black vinyl wrap, much beefier and stickier tires (Toyo Proxes triple 8: front~285/35/20 R~315/30/20), and the installation of SP's Godzilla package did just that! You can see how aggressive the car looks now...

And for your viewing pleasure all the goodies that went into the car we had photographed. I will post a small dyno video shortly.

Words from our customer Ray Hofman himself in

Thanks guys! Car was absolutely awesome on the track!

The driver of the FGT told me he had to change his shorts after I blew by him... he has a Heffner TT setup and pulled into the middle of the track cause he thought there was no way I could keep up and he wanted lots of room... once I saw him straighten out I laid into it to pass... the Troopers went wild :D

There was a 458 Challenge car there and everyone was huddled around the GTR HAHA

As far as the UGR car being able to hit those speeds I'm sure I will find out :D

Or I could take my mile car and hit 220+ by halfway...Still have to slow down though before throwing it into turn 1

Fantastic Event and Cause... will post more once I get caught up over the weekend.

Thanks for posting the vid and pics in this thread!
