HKS R-Type Intercooler Kit - Nissan R35 GTR



Available for these Applications:
2009+  R35 GT-R VR38DETT

Large capacity core with carbon air guide will greatly improve cooling performance. The carbon air guide has premium looking. Even though the core has larger capacity, weight of the intercooler unit is lighter than stock. Performance level is much higher than other manufactures' products, which are just slightly larger than stock intercooler.

Cooling Performance:
Although performance of stock intercooler is good, it is just good for stock boost level. At boost 1.2k (GT570 Kit, GT600 Kit), temperature of compressed air will be increased. (Cause: Since stock core size is not enough for the flow capacity of stock turbochargers.) To improve cooling performance, larger core is required. After performance tests, if the core size is just slightly larger, there is not so much performance improvement. To achieve great performance enhancement, the large size (Size: 400x260x65) & thin core was selected.

Intercooler assemblies are lighter than stock and reduces the front-end weight overhang.

Stock: 9.6kg (21 lbs)
HKS: 8.0kg (17 lbs.)

Effects of Engine Water Temperature:
Large capacity cores commonly reduce air flow to the radiator. With the new HKS intercooler design, air flow speed to the radiator is actually increased. During tests at Sendai Highland Circuit and Fuji Speedway, there was no increase in water temperature over stock.

Special Large Carbon Air Duct:
The shape of the air duct is perfectly matched to the larger core sizes. Incoming air flows efficiently to the intercooler cores enhancing cooling performance. The side air guide plates of the duct also provide sufficient air flow to radiator. (The carbon pattern is a matte twill weave cloth.)

Installation Time:
Approximately 8-10 hours.

Kit Includes:
- Intercooler Assemblies with Polished Aluminum Piping
- Carbon Air Duct
- Silicone Hoses
- Clamps and Necessary Hardware.

Modifications Required:
Modification of the air duct in front of the stock radiator core support.
Slight bending of the air conditioner pipes.

Test Results By HKS:

Stock Intercooler 438.6kw (596.3ps) / 6660rpm
