New Harman Motive Products (Nissan R35 GT-R)

Harman Motive Cold Air IntakeWhile it is true that the stock airbox system on the GTR is excellent, through careful testing we were able to develop a system that adds significant mid-range torque and horsepower while improving boost response. The Harman Motive Intake System draws cool air by placing large conical filters inside the front bumper. It completely replaces the stock airboxes and MAF housings. The primary parts of the Harman Motive Intake System are the billet MAF housings. Designed and machined in-house, our housings replicate the stock system size with high accuracy. This allows our intake to function without any adjustments to fuel trims or full throttle air/fuel ratio. As such, our intakes will work with the stock ECU or any tuning designed for the stock airboxes. Installation requires removal of the front bumper. The Nissan bumper is well made and easy to remove/install. No cutting or permanent modifications are required for the installation of this intake system. The Harman Motive intake sounds incredible on the Skyline. By placing the filters outside the engine bay, air induction and bypass (blow-off valve) can be heard during aggressive acceleration and shifting. However, the intake is quiet during cruise and does not have an annoying "sucking" sound during normal driving.
Harman Motive Midpipe
The Harman Motive Midpipe is the first step to unlock the power of the R35 GTR. By replacing the restrictive factory part, our midpipe dramatically improves horsepower, torque, and response. When coupled with a Cobb Accessport running Stage 2 mapping, gains are even more impressive.
