R32 GTR Low On Power

Recommended Posts

I had my R32 GTR Dynoed a couple of months ago. It had a pissy 139kW at all 4 wheels. The place that did this for me said that this was as per normal for a GTR. For a sum of approx $5000 they could easily get me 200Kw at the wheels.

Since this time I have heard that Standard GTR's should have approx 175Kw at the wheels. Can anyone confirm this????

Does anyone have any ideas as to why my car would be down so much in power. The only modifications are blow off valves and a HKS exhaust. The importer has done a dodgy job of installing a cat converter - but would this take away this much power.

Any advice on places to look would be very helpful. I don't want to go to a shop again as they seem to just want to get your money and rip you off.

Have you driven other GTR's? Reason I'm asking is that before I got my car dynoed at 2 places and I got 2 very funny readings. Apparently I get more power at 4 wheels than 2 wheels???? Personally I don't live off dyno figures, the dyno is just a tuning tool.

You running bigger rims BTW? Mods? This also affects dyno figures.

You should be getting more power in 2WD mode than in 4WD mode. 139 @ 4 wheels sounds about right when compared to 175 @ 2 wheels. (My GTS4 runs 115 and 145).

Dodgy cat install could well be creating too much back pressure, which will adversely affect power.

If you want more power, check out the latest HPI (GT-R special edition #4) for some cheap yet effective power enhancements.

Watch out for places that tell u that your car is running shit and then say for x amount of $$ we can make it do this as its very easy to bodge dyno figures.

Take it to another dyno and get it checked out

I haven't driven any other GTR's. But i have driven many other fast cars. There is no way my car wouold be able to cut a qtr mile time in the 13's. I think it would struggle to be under 15s.

Does anyone no a decent shop in Sydney I couls take my car too and get an honest assessment???

That dyno figure does not sound right. My 32 GTR is running at 160kw at all 4 without aftermarket exhaust or cat. Have been told that is poor too! A lot of car that come out of japan run to rich. What is fuel comsumption like? Should get at least 400 to 450 out of a tank. $5000 to get to 200kw is a joke! If you have a good exhaust, hiflow cat, HKS cam gears and a good tuner you should be able to make 200 to 250 with a bit of extra boost.

Call Ben (racepace motorsport) in Melb. to set you on the right track (0397629421). A 500kw at wheels R33 GTR is all the qualifications this guy needs!
