Taking Time Attack podiums in style.

There’s a reason they call the Nissan GT-R “Godzilla”. In stock form, the Japanese super car is nothing short of a monster. It offers drivers an incredible amount of power and handling that is backed by decades of engineering. But when you take Godzilla and upgrade him with a host of motorsports goodies, you have yourself a monster of apocalyptic proportions.

That’s exactly what the team at South Side Performance has built a GT-R that can be considered the bringer of the end times with the sheer amount of power and performance that spins its ISS Forged FS-6 wheels. The 2010 Nissan GT-R has the awards and recognition to back it all up as well. The South Side Performance GT-R has achieved two podium finishes in the Global Time Attack, First Place at Jersey Motorsports Park, Second Place at Chicago Motorsports Park, and was the 2011 Undefeated Real Time Attack Exotic Class Champion.

But there’s more to the South Side Performance Nissan GT-R that just records. There’s a great deal of time, effort, blood, sweat, and tears that have gone into creating a super car that slice through corners at triple digit speeds with ease.

Beneath the hood lies a twin-turbocharged 3.8-liter V-6 that just begs for the throttle to be pressed. South Side Performance gave the engine a full exhaust system with in-house SSP Titan Series Catless downpipes, four-inch catless Y-pipe, and four-inch catback race exhaust. To feed both turbochargers and the engine with more air and boost pressure, the team installed and SSP V2 front-mounted intercooler with 2.75-inch TX Race Series piping, TX Race Series three-inch intakes with ducting, Teflon throttle body spacers, and upper and lower Teflon intake plenum spacers. New FIC 1000 cc fuel injectors were then installed along with a Cobb Access Port with transmission features and SSP Pro Tune with 542 whp and 550 wtq.

The extreme amount of power that was being created by the engine required the transmission to be reinforced so that all 500+ ponies could reliably be sent to each of the ISS Forged FS-6 wheels. The drivetrain was upgraded with new SSP Viton main shaft and clutch basket seals, transmission pan magnets, rear main shaft and rear drive gear locks, a forward drive gear lock, GR-6 transmission filter, and then filled with Pro Gold transmission fluid. The finishing touch was a new SSP 800 HP clutch kit.

One of the most important aspects in the entire South Side Performance Nissan GT-R is the wheel fitment. After all, they are the only part of the car that makes contact with the road. The record-setting super car wears a set of unique ISS Forged FS-6 wheels with a six-spoke design. The wheels were fitted in an OEM replacement Track setup with 20 x 10 front and 20 x 11 rears. Each of the FR-6 wheels wear a special penny copper finished center disc and matte black outer lip with red pinstripe to complement the exterior design and color scheme.

A great deal of emphasis was put on the exterior of the South Side Performance Nissan GT-R in terms of style and aerodynamics for better handling in high-speed turns. Up front sits a Power House Amuse front lip to generate downforce at the front axle while the rear utilizes an APR-GTC 500 carbon fiber spoiler and SSP dry carbon fiber diffuser fins to help keep it planted at high speeds. New SSP GT-R exhaust guards, a 3M matte black roof and trunk wrap, and 35 percent window tint help create a visually distinct appearance along with the ISS Forged FS-6 wheels. The engine bay was also outfitted with styling accessories such as a Password JDM locking oil cap and color-matched plastics surrounding the engine.

The interior is hardly stock as well, as SSP opted to take the motorsports route for safety and performance. The standard seats were replaced with new lightweight Bride “Low Max” seats with gradation fabric and Sparco four-point harnesses, sitting atop Custom R/O Bride seat rails. The rest of the cockpit was then finished off with new SSP carbon fiber trim pieces for a sportier look.
