Q: What does the VIAS/SSIM Block Plate do?
A: This is strictly a block plate kit for those that want to remove their VIAS (Variable Induction Air Control System). That will hurt low end power, but since you are removing an obstruction, it will help top end. You will gain approximately 5hp on midrange and top end power.
The other use for this block plate and considered the best option as far as performance is known as the SSIM (Secret Sauce Intake Manifold). That name was created years ago by a member of the Maxima discussion forums. This involves cutting the shelf out of the main chamber of the upper intake manifold and removing the VIAS assembly. This will still lose low end power and some midrange, but the gains in the top end are very noticeable. It’s definitely a modification that is worthwhile if you are serious about increasing top end HP. An engine tune and extended rev limiter is highly recommended if you want to get the full potential out of the SSIM.
This G35, has a twin turbo VQ35 and airbags, carbon fiber rims, suede custom interior and much more. Peep the wire tuck on that engine bay! I am pretty sure he won Best of Show at the annual Stillen show over in cali this May 2010. He deserves it! That is truely one of the best G35′s rockin’ a VQ35 in the game right now. RRYDE (Randy aka caskyline) did the build, to absolute perfection! Marcus Cooke Photography handled this shoot with the utmost quality and taste in choice of angles. This is what it looks like when you have people that know how to mod and also photograph, come together. You get something GREAT! VQ35 FTMFW!
I just came across this today while searching the net, and knew my fellow VQ35 enthusiasts would love to have a look at it. It’s a VQ35DE transplanted into a R32 Skyline. With all the trimings straight from the best of the JDM big dawgs! TOP SECRET!
Top Secret has stepped forward with a R32 fitted with a V35 Skyline engine. In fact, this chassis model is a GT-R modified into a drift vehicle. The front driveshaft has been eliminated to transform this vehicle into a FR setup. There has been rumors that the suspension had been tuned for drifting also.
The reason why they chose the VQ engine was “Since now is the height of the VQ engine, it’s our chance to further develop it.” Another important factor was that the rather than to choose the Z33 or V35, the R32 was a familiar platform. This way, they can fully put efforts into modifying the engine.
The latest VQ35DE is a 3.5 liter V6 that naturally aspirates 294 horses. Most often, cars that come out of Top Secret are turbocharged; but in this case an NA build up was carried out.
The engine received a ported head, modified combustion chamber, Nismo camshafts, and a 6 individual throttle body (ITB) setup. The ITBs were named GT Throttle to be released on the market in the near future.
The vehicle was rated at 354 horses. Most of the parts such as the engine cross member were used to transplant the motor were custom made, and is also expected to be released for sale sometime soon.
A 3.5 liter V6 may sound like it’s a relatively large sized engine, but in reality, it is 30 cm shorter than the RB26. The VQ engine was 150 kg (330lbs) lighter and was a setup that gave the RB26 a run for its money in regards to handling and response. Air conditioning and a full car stereo system were cleanly installed.
The car has been featured in Option and Option2 magazines many times before, but this is the very first time actually running the machine. We asked Yoichi Imamura to test drive the vehicle since this was a company car owned by Top Secret.
Simply a super sweet modded up VQ35! Imagine what type of power this setup could put down if it was FI’d! Big power!
The Heat Treatments R32 Nissan Skyline GT-R went back onto the dyno just a few days ago, and found even more power. The last dyno numbers that were shown on the Heat Treatments site showed 1667 hp. Now with a bigger exhaust, and other modifications the car put down an additional 115 hp to the wheels, or it should be around 1782 hp.
They will be trying the new setup, with the increased power at the Jamboree in Queensland Australia on 21-22 August 2010.
