For those of you lucky enough to have an R35 GT-R but are finding its performance a little lacklustre [Ed - surely not?], Cobb Tuning in the US has a solution.
The tuning firm has released its AccessPORT product for the R35. AccessPORT connects straight to the R35's OBD (On Board Diagnostics) port and allows owners to reflash the Nissan's ECU. The device, out of the box, stores 2 maps providing two stages of tune.
Stage 1 - for gains 46kW / 95Nm (for cars that have not been modified)
Stage 2 - for gains 51kW / 122Nm (for cars that have been mildly modified)
AccessPORT also stores the OEM ECU map, should you desire to return your GT-R to its 'stock tune'. Other handy features include its ability to remove the factory-set speed limiter, and should you want, you have the ability to effectively 'hobble' the car, via a valet mode. A great way to ensure that the person you lend the keys to, won't be able to drive it like a test pilot.
The device also contains a scanner for the OBD, allowing you to check trouble codes the ECU throws up, and to clear them if necessary. A useful tool in diagnosing any dashboard warning lights.
AccessPORT can also be connected to the Internet, so you can pull down new ECU maps as more are developed, and keep up-to-date with any firmware updates that Cobb may release.
AccessPORT can be yours for USD$995 + shipping. With the promise of an extra 40kW, any person who is familiar with modifying cars in Australia will recognise the value that AccessPORT offers.
