Help - hks gt600

Hi everyone,

can I use the cobb's AP with this kit as I'm close to closing a deal on a KAC GTR with a HKS GT600 kit (wish it did not have it but the car is mint) + tranny circlip and seals upgrades done. I've heard this GT600 kit isn't all that, so want to have the ability to use Cobb AP for better maps and improve what's been bolted on.

Unfortunately my choices of maps will need to be off the shelf becoz I in HK there is only top racing who currently tuned this HKS GT600.

Thanks for any input.

yes you can use an AccessPORT with the HKS GT600 kit, i can easily etune you like i have done many other overseas HKS kitted R35's

Running a HKSGT600 kit with oem map / timing will give the oem rods a beating recommended to reduce the low down tq

The kit is basically obsolete according to members here so I'm really getting this GTR becoz its had the tranny circlips and seal already done.

Is it a problem having the EVC still installed? Does it get in the way?

you should buy a nice clean EDM MY11

EVC means can not switch between different boost maps using cobb/steering wheel cruise control

So basically this kit on the car is just old Pentium III (e-waste) and gets in the way of the Core-Duo (Cobb AP).

I think I may need to rephrase my question now.

Would you pickup a stock GTR with no mods or would you pickup a HKS GT600 with all tranny mods for an additional 6K GBP. If I performed the tranny mod on the stock it would cost $4K GBP all in. But becoz the kit is obsolete, and according to various posts I have read pointless, what would you choose and do? thx
