Converting Jdm R35 Gtr To Adm R35 Gtr

Recommended Posts

You would need to change buttons as well there are harness differences as well. Yes the screen will swap , radio will partially swap. Buttons will swap and that's it.

JDM has extra stuff for etc and TV that will be left unconnected.

exactly.

I had people willing to do that with the V36 BUT only the master controller. lots more needs to swap and when you start adding it up it gets into 5 figures very quickly.

Hi there,

I have been actively trying to source the HDD files (app.bin to be specific) so we can proceed to create a software conversion.

I tried posting on GT-R life as it looks like a few members have the appropriate files but looks like the moderators are blocking my posts for this for whatever reason.

Anyway, we have successfully created conversions for Mitsubishi's, Honda's, Mazda's and are working on many more so I can guarantee a conversion if someone could help supply the files from the HDD :)

Thanks in advance

Interesting! This company mentioned they can do something about the 2007~2009 MFD upgrade to 2014 version! Does it mean they can convert Japanese to English!

So far I did brought the old unit and turn out it is not function properly! Learnt a lesson! wasting $$$$$$$.

They have got around this issue you can swap out the whole MFD now. There is multiple threads and reveiws over on gtrhertiage.com detailing the process.

From what I have seen, this option costs around the 3-5k (NZD) mark - has a cheaper, more realistic option been developed?

This is the cheapest, most realistic option. It will cost around $2200 AUD for the unit and then you will need to buy some parts and panels from Nissan to change your older interior parts to make it all fit 100% like OEM.

This is the unit for sale. Trusted seller.

Enjoy.

I have jacked up a JDM GTR to come visit in the next couple of weeks - From there we will take the necessary info and start work on creating a software conversion for this, local maps will be on cards too..

If I owned a GTR I would think $2200AUD was a little extreme (no offence) regardless of whether it was the only option or not - Cant give a timeframe for this but it will happen and with a lot less effort required..

I tried sourcing the JDM firmware but on every site it seemed to have disappeared.. this would have sped the process up if I could have found it but option b it is :rolleyes:

P.S. If someone has done a hardware swap and wants to donate (sell) their JDM unit then please let me know :)

After a major service of my car last week! Enhanced the existing GR6 gearbox with an addition of Japanese made Gearbox Gear-Lock Set, replaced all gearbox sensors and replaced a new flywheel housing, replaced radiator fans, oil pump, keyless go key lock system and ordered a list of 2013 model upgrade parts which include suspension set, front A-arms, anti-roll bars, new set of tyres and battery. Well sounds good ah, but a throat cutting spendings! :unsure:

Didn't touch the car for a week! Yesterday! The car didn't response my car key and found out old battery no power, therefore, recharging the battery and start the car again! Alarm noise and the dash board just like Christmas tree lights up and brinks! Wow! heard electric shocking noise then the car shout down itself! :/ I restart the car again and engine run and the car go back to normal but the AUDIO & REAR VIEW CAM die! :rant:

RUN OUT OF CAR ALLOWANCE (CASH)! Now its time really going to get an English System! Hope I don't need to go back to the keep failing Japanese system!

Nice that there seems to be a solution.

The JDM GTRs are a lot cheaper whenever they're up for sale, so might be the only option for some people.

Yes! Current imported used 07 & 08 JDM GTR are cheap! But, no free dinner! Very easy getting a dodge cars!

First seen one last week in Hong Kong! Straight from cargo container! Jack up in garage and first seen the trans-axle joint didn't fix tight and very loosen! One remote control key not working! Radiator fans broken! Old dusty interior! Scratched alloy wheels! Battery, tyres, brake discs, brake pads and Suspensions need replacement! Very sure gearbox and other major unseen parts were swapped in Japan and need to replace! The seller only pays cheap to do a make-up job and sell for around AUD$85,000.00! So, why buy old private import GTR if you can afford to buy genuine GTR from showroom!

In Hong Kong, we've seen few dodge GTR! Thus, we only buy or sell between known people!

Any replacement and upgrade works done to a dodge GTR just like throwing money into a wormhole! Never end! Very unenjoyable experience with GTR!

I'm in, and have been talking to the very humble Lithuanian gentleman who is responsible - only thing now holding me back are the blasted New Zealand Nissan Connect Maps, apparently they need to be HDD V9.0 and the entire thing would be fully upgraded to NZ New 2014 Spec.

Anyone now where/how I could get my hands on the maps?

Last year the Japanese version audio head unit hard disk finally burnt! 

A week of delivery! Yesterday! I successfully converting my JDM 2007 R35 GTR existing Japanese MFD master assembly (Audio Head Unit) to current USA English system. There are some modification (which I don't know and don't understand at all) done! But it appear to me the diagnosis are all OK! And took us few hours to set the rear view CAM to activate. The English buttons can change no problem later and the English dashboard cluster are awaiting stock to come.

 

Total cost and labour approx. AUD$3,600.00

 

To complete the English buttons and dashboard cluster approx. AUD$1,200.00

 

Thank you everyone for reply and support.

We have completed conversions of R35 GTR Jap Spec to 2015 model R35 GTR MFD

We can also convert 2009-2010 Aussie Spec NON-NAV GTR to the 2015 R35 GTR with Nav, bluetooth, upgraded MFD etc. but also requires to send your buttons to get reprinted or converted to be able to use with the new systems.

And finally, if you want ENGLISH Instrument Cluster we are getting around this by using a EU Nismo Cluster (in KM/H AND ENGLISH) which last time i checked is around $2000 new + labour installation.

 

thanks

    • Duncan, Thanks for that. Much appreciated. Cheers, Fred
    • 120mm for a standard r32 gtr or gtst power steer pulley.  
    • Been nothing happening for a while as got the sil80 going and been trying to decide what direction to go but have been doing the important things like painting cam cover and making heat shield for the turbo.  Fitted some more lights to the work area in the shed and converted to LEDs. Heaps better with the extra lights.  Pulled out the ecu and loom this week to start planning a new loom with extra sensors and inputs.  Considering going DBW as liking it on the other car. So will have to send ecu back to link for modding.  Car is booked in to get the engine bay and under side blasted end of July so have to get a move on stripping. 
    • Yep - I have had three different EFR's - and still run an 8474.  All have had this casting issue and I didn't like it either.   The Turbo's perform well - but its disappointing to see this lack of quality control - and yes it does make you naturally wonder if there are other problems that you can't see. I think that Borg Warners attitude to "its fine, and doesn't stop it working" is not a good thing.  As others above have said, other manufacturers seem to get their castings nice and tidy and you would expect that the top of their line be well finished.   Maybe BW should have a read of this thread and think about it for Version 2.0.     PS.  I've had 8374 and 8474 back to back on same engine - and I can say that in my experience the 8474 definitely does not spool as quickly as the 8374.   I can say this from dyno charts, seat of the pants feel, logging and track times.   The 8474 does exactly what you would expect:  Spools a bit later (200-300rpm), and makes a bit more power up top.         
    • Will do, thanks.   Do you know from memory which of these two plug (red marker) is for reverse switch ? also what is other one for ?
