A few of you have probably seen Ricky Kwan’s GTR before. It does have some atypical bits and pieces on it however…
Nope, that’s not an intercooler…
But rather a radiator.
Providing the cooled water for the pair of air-to-water intercoolers. The air-to-water intercoolers make for some very short piping for improved transient response. Underneath the ICs is a massively thick radiator; it’s somewhere around 4 inches thick. When you’re road racing, you need to stay cool! A pair of Tial BOVs are used along with Earl’s lines and fittings everywhere.
Ricky is a narrower guy and therefore has the slim fitting Sparco driver’s seat. More American sized passengers get the wider Recaro. Mounted on the center console is a Cobb Accessport. If you want to tune a GTR, the Cobb AP is the way to go.
The rear wing mounts are super strong. I tried to get them to flex just a millimeter and failed. They are literally about a half inch thick. Notice they are also mounted solidly to the chassis and not to the trunk.
