Goodbye Supercharged M3... Hello traction!!!

Well my recording setting M3 is gone. It was one bad ass machine and I'm sure I'll miss the howl of the engine at 8300 rpm, but it was time for me to move on to the next level.

Here are some photos of my new ride! The 2012 Nissan GT-R...

Bone stock it recorded a PBOX time of 11.03 @ 125.6 mph (503 DA). After that run I headed back to my shop and installed an HKS resonated midpipe and HKS legamax exhaust. The results were 10.90 @ 127.8 mph (1476 DA).

ENJOY!

The car looks great! Congrats on getting everything straightened out and finally getting a 2012 GT-R.

The extra performance you got from the mid-pipe and exhaust is making me rethink keeping my car bone stock. I added the same HKS setup you have to my 2011 and noticed a little difference in performance and it appears I will get the same results if I add them to the 2012.

Nissan upgraded the launch control for MY2012. It is now covered under warranty.

You should... I was expecting it to louder, but it's hardly noticeable.

Cool! I could probably call Cobb and get the pre-release. We are on of 4 Cobb Beta tuners in the country.

Also, careful with putting parts on that car with no tune. The GT-R ECU is not as adaptive as the BMW DME. Changing parts without tuning will hurt it.

Let me know if there is anything I can do to help. We have a shop GT-R now, so we have learned tons about those cars.

Congrats Mike, these things are beasts! If you don't mind me asking, did you pay a mark-up? I'm in SoCal and haven't found one yet w/o some crazy mark-up .
