R34 GTR 6speed "upgrades?"


Recommended Posts

Is there any options? Im about to crank up the power a bit more in my GTR, Running 707awhp today in the car and the gearbox does feel really good in general.

However i feel its dumb to push the gearbox further and risking it would there be any Upgrade options to a R34 gtr or is it just to go straight to a PPG/samsonas/Quaiffe gearbox?

The car is mostly used as a Road car so i would prefer not to hear the whines from a Sequential

im in a similar place with similar power.

 half of the bits in the getrag are becoming rocking horse shit (try to find an input shaft)

neat gearboxes are commissioning parts to be made by albins, but they are pricing them like they have a monopoly.

only thing you can do is ISF polish the gears and go to a billet centre plate, next step is the big boi boxes.

Yeah! Might aswell sell it and go for a PPG straigh away instead of risiking damaging the box since the 6spd sell value almost covers half the PPG box.

I mean sure if you want to have to do your sequential twice go PPG.

What’s that worth? Can’t see a $$$$

A decent getrag H pattern 6 speed dog box would be sweet!

I think the last time I talked to Haysam at PAR when getting my 5 speed dog it was about $9 - $10k starting price. Obviously hasn't sold one in a while hence no price update, and would definitely only be made to order.

Pfitzner used to do a geaset for the Getrag but has been discontinued ages ago.

I would say one of the best pairings to the Getrag is an ATS carbon twin plate. the gearbox side clutch assembly (hub and plates) is unbelievably light. Each carbon disc weighs about 190 grams and really reduces the amount of work the syncros need to do.

caveat is if you do a lot of start stop traffic driving (cold slipping) it wears quite quickly. but once hot its a beast.

    • VP race fuel like VP 109 ron unleaded is a waste of money compared to E85. Just go flex fuel setup so you can run on pump unleaded or E85 all without draining tanks or switching tunes. You go VP race fuel you will have to change tune when using it, then change back to a pump unleaded tune. VP109 for example will support about the same boost and timing increaes as E85, but it requires the afr's to be a lot leaner than E85 but richer than pump unleaded.
    • Whats your budget? Maybe call Nispro in QLD for quote - they build a lot of VQ and have a turbo kit in development - but id say at least 20k to do it right - oh actually maybe do LS swap will be cheaper but....hmm  im a purist - so id rather stick to VQ35DE or whats the point lol.... just my opinion - do what u want. its your car  
    • Ok sorry I should rephase my question. But good answer haha.  How can I make 400whp that isn't using nitrous. 
    • dyno run would be on VP race fuel or e85 / e98, E85 is not easily accessible by me. Closest pump is 30 min in a direction I do not travel. So while I will go out to get it. It will also get pump gas 93 octane is highest avilable in US so overall power will be down if mix fuels  e50, e30, e10 ect 
    • Cheapest way? Spray. A wet kit with 200hp jets could be up and running for less then $2000. Then its about $16 per pound when its time to refill your bottle.
