R35 Intake Prototyping

Our engineering staff has been quite busy developing product for the new R35 GT-R.  Josh and Eric have already started work on the exhaust system, and today Billy and Eric put some time in on our SF Intake for the GT-R.  Below are a few pictures of a mock up.
Our R35 SF Intake will feature our composite MAF housings with integrated velocity stack and air flow straighteners.  Air is filtered through high flow, serviceable, blue cotton filters.  As with all modern intake systems, a lot of care and effort must go into keeping the air flow smooth throughout the entire system.  Any failure to do so will lead to stumbles, hesitations, or even a loss in power.  OEMs aren’t slacking when it comes to factory air boxes anymore, and particularly on a car like the GT-R, so you really have to do your homework to make something work well.

I am anxious to see the results from this intake change. Are any ideas being considered to ensure the intakes draw in cold air vice the hot underhood air? (Shrouding, Ducting, etc.)

Any heatsoak issues during idle? or any other times?
Can’t wait to see what you guys do to this Japanese monster.

    Nick,

    We have an intake in the works, but no ETA on when it will be released to the market as of this time.
