Looks like lots of Japanese tuning houses are doing 1000hp R35s now.

The wheels alone on display are enough to make me drool!
Some very nice cars on display and as has been said already, great styling too.

That R32 with the cut away bonnet just looks mental.

They look like some advan wheels to me. I swear I've seen them on some GT spec car that nissan released. Obviously the ones on that car are 20" though. Also could quite easily be VOLK's.

Those ADVAN's in the pic have a more aggressive bend on the spokes that the ones on the car.

Looks like a Volks to me. The most common aftermarket wheel for the GT-R as it's one of the lightest.

I like that carbon wing. I wonder if HKS Kanzai sell them now?

Some stunning GTR's there. Interesting compound setup on the Street Special R32, would be interesting to see how that performs.

I think the only reason they are now at 1k HP is due to them working with usdm gtr shops/tuners. Like greddy USA and sp engineering who both are using the cobb accessport and upgrading the greddy turbos for more power and the cobb doing the tuning.

Does anyone know what tuning solution Top Secret are using now? Is it ecutek?

Hks seem to be making gt1000 only in response to American tuners. There approach is a little different by using additional injectors instead of high flow injectors most of the usdm tuners are using now. This aproch solves some issues but also has its issues. Both offer great performance and one is not better than the other.

I'm guessing a lot of the 1000HP claims on Japan is bhp and not whp like the American tuners are producing. To be fair 1200HP the greddy car is making is probably 1k whp or about.
Also usdm tuners producing massive torque too... But have made proper engine and and trans mods for this power.

Thanks for the heads up with those guys. I dunno many members on this board I will try and search and pm them later unless you can direct them to this thread for us. Top secret were making just under 1000HP on one of there cars at TAS and they use a modified greddy turbo kit for the r35.
