Aftermarket suppliers are quickly embracing Nissan's new road rocket with a host of modifications now available, covering everything from visual and aerodynamic additions, to improvements in handling and performance. This time around, it is renowned tuner HKS that has released an upgrade package - the HKS GT570. As the name implies, you can expect around 570PS (approximately 420kWs) at the wheels from the fully installed kit.

The package is fairly mild in terms of actual modifications, however the replacement of only a handful of components and no-doubt some additional turbo-boost, has seen torque jump to a mind-bending 730+Nms. The GT570 kit includes the following parts;

  • HKS aluminium hard pipe kit
  • HKS silicon hose joiners
  • HKS wastegate actuators for the standard R35 GT-R turbos
  • HKS Electronic Valve Control (EVC) boost controller
  • HKS dump and front pipes (removes catalytic converters)

Jump through to the image gallery and you will note that in typical HKS fashion, the installation is super clean.

In case the pics are not enough, we've also dug up the following video, where you can see a GT570 equipped GT-R being put through its paces on a dyno. It's worth watching just for the noise.

In the fine tradition of previous Skyline based GT-R's, the R35 is proving to be imminently tuneable, and the current darling of the big name tuners. With the products released over the last month or two, it would be possible to build a rather awe-inspiring GT-R based supercar - provided you have the cash.

Take one R35 GT-R, throw in a Cobb AccessPORT, bolt on some kit from WALD and go-faster gear from Nismo, and finish it all off with the GT570 package from HKS and the roads will be yours.
