Having been on the recent GTROC trip to Japan, I can vouch for the quality of everything that Mine's does. Personally, I felt that their R35 was the best I saw in Japan from both an engine and carbon perspective. Add to that how welcoming they were (their President personally took us for lunch!), how knowledgable they were, and their fanatical attention to detail - well you really can't lose when you buy Mine's:clap:

Once the £ to yen exchange rate improves a little, I'm down for a Mine's exhaust to start with...

How much do they charge for their overall engine package and what power/torque is it? They used to make a great package for the R34.

Guy - the Mine's R35 we saw last week had just been finished, and engine prices were not available yet.

I had the privilege of revving it and the response was absolutely instantaneous right through to the 5000 revs that they suggested I took it to. More like a racing bike than a turbo 6. Extremely impressive.

What I like is that Mine's don't aim for out and out sky high power and torque figures just for figures sake - their engines may not have massive power on paper, but because of the overall package they're probably alot quicker and more useable in the real world than others.

You can use this link to get to a .pdf that you can download for more performance parts info:-

just checked out the pdf; nice line up

nice canards!

what is the wing cover?
The wing cover is a perpendicular lip at the rear of the wing. I was so busy looking over the cars when I was there that I forgot to take pictures! Perhaps our "official Japan photographer" Simon has a close up of it - I'll try and find out.

was super impressed with what was said on the mines video. Attention to detail is second to none, and its the little details that make the difference.

so just how much is the exhaust then?
470,400 Yen list price, which is about £3,200 at today's exchange rate. I believe you need to add 10% import duty, then 17.5% VAT on the total, and you get to £4,136. If I'm wrong about exact import tax level I'm sure someone will correct me.

Not cheap, but excellence never is.

As that other famous car maker Henry Frederick Royce said, "The quality will remain long after the price is forgotten".

If you click on Mines Motor Sports, then click on R35 GTR which is immediately under "Product" on the left you will find the wing cover on Page 3.

Why I'm posting this at 8am on Christmas morning I really don't know:D

They haven't got a finished price yet as the car is still in test and they've yet to finally sort out what will be included in the engine package and how much labour to charge, but by all accounts the test one would have cost over £60k had it been completed for a customer
