With over 2000 HP at 75 PSI the Maatouks Racing King32 GTR has run a 7.00 @ 199 MPH making it the quickest and fastest street legal GT-R on the planet running radial tyres.
Head tuner Mitch runs HPAs Andre through quite a comprehensive list of topics in this interview which include the somewhat surprising fact that the car runs a cast iron RB30 block alongside it’s Nitto 3.2L stroker kit, Maatouks cylinder head package, Haltech Elite 2500 ECU and Precision Pro Mod 91mm turbocharger. The car puts power to the ground via a Turbo 300 4 speed trans via 4wd setup that is also controlled by the Haltech ECU instead of the factory electronics.
Among the topics are C02 boost control, shimless cylinder head conversions, torque split as the car barrels down the strip, 2 step trans brake, nitrous and the dry sump setup which sees the main tank up the front of the car due to weight balance not being much of a concern for the application. When and why the team will switch to a billet block is also touched on along with data logging and how it’s used to help dial in the car to go faster and faster.
