Texas doesn’t screw around: they like things big, and they like things powerful. There’s no place like Texas for stuffing as much horsepower under your hood as humanly possible.
Tuning company T1 Race Development from Rockwall, TX, transforms an R35 GT-R into a rocket ship by cramming about 2,500hp under the bonnet and firing it to 235mph. So when the guys at T1 Race Development got their hands on a Nissan GT-R, they transformed this car in real Godzilla.
Tony’s personal R35 serves as the test mule for product development and is constantly pushing this platform to new levels. Making 2,000+whp in any application is an amazing feat and doing it in a street car that you can run errands in is just flat out crazy.
The T1 machine sports a GT1R Stage 7 4.0 liter R35 Extreme Duty short block with Stage 3 cylinder heads and camshafts, with a pair of Forced Performance HTZ4505 turbos. Instead of using air-to-air intercoolers, a set of air-to-water heat exchangers neatly position in line with the compressor discharge of each of the T4-framed turbochargers.All said, the GT-R produces close to 2,500 horsepower. And best of all, it’s still street legal and street-driven.
