Tomei Expreme Manifold for SR20DET

The Ultimate SR20 Exhaust Manifold
(The Engine Specialists)
Kit Contents
Exhaust Manifold
Expreme Thermo Bandage
Bolt Smooth Paste
Expreme Sticker


Our EXPREME exhaust manifold is now available for SR20 owners who want a performance upgraded from the genuine exhaust manifold. With our product you can retain the genuine setup and no special modifications are needed to fit the standard turbo. With the SR20DET the exhaust manifold was designed to be close from the exhaust port to the turbine. With the comparison test of our isometric prototype & the factory genuine manifold which also utilizes the same layout, it shows that ours has succeeded in delivering an overall improved performance in both torque and power increase in areas like in the higher RPM range in which you were not able to utilize before. With our extensive testing we have reached the conclusion that the normal design is superior as a total overall efficiency. So to develop an exhaust manifold similar with the design and setup as the factory manifold we were finally able to produce a product worthy to bear our name as a product that has the potential to deliver an overall increase in performance.

Old Valvetrain Don't go to Waste

Was cleaning up the shop last friday and noticed a box of old valves and valve springs that was used in our time attack car. Instead of tossing them into the garbage, I thought it would be nice to create some CIP art!

GReddy Radiator Breather Tank 12400903

GReddy Radiator Breather Tank 12400903
Designed originally for racing engines, today’s compact production engines can also benefit from the used of GReddy’s Radiator Bleed Tank. By mounting the tank high up in the engine compartment, you can be assured that of a fully filled system with room for air expansion, thus reducing chances of overheating due to air-lock. Block-off radiator cap included.

I definitly recommend this to High Reving SR's or KA's where cavitation can occur. This can also prevent damage to the motor when overheated, ie. Headgasket Failure.

High capacity performance in a compact frame
-With the use of the high quality valve and diaphragm control system, the type-RZ was created to be the most reliable Blow off valve system available.
-New designs allow for high capacity and performance that rival high performance Blow-off Valves, While being more compact and lighter-weight.

Ultimate Discharge Sound
-The unique 8 discharge ports in the CNC machined aluminum discharge funnel draws surrounding air to amplify blow-off sound.
Large 40mm Valve
-The CNC machined aluminum valve is coated with a hard anodizing, to withstand extreme friction, maintain an airtight seal and increase durability.

Quick Response
-To ensure proper valve movement, a durable, airtight, pressure resistant Bellofram diaphragm is used.
-The Short valve stroke allows a compact top housing design. This smaller top housing volume also adds improved valve response

Dual Spring System
-A carefully selected spring rate, prevents premature discharge under high boost pressure and increases valve speed for quick response application.

Adjustable Spring Rate
-The spring tension can be tuned by the adjustment screw, to suit mass applications.

Re-Circulation Hose Adapter
-The Discharge funnel can be replaced with an optional, Re-circulation Hose Adapter to allow re-routing of the discharged air back in the air intake system.
-Re-circulation Hose Adapter is not included in the Universal Blow-off valve Type-RZ Kit.

Mounting Flange
-The Type-RZ uses the same mounting flange as Type-S and the Type-RS (flange not included). There may be some applications, where the Type-RZ Will not be able to replace the GREDDY valve on some bolt-on blow-off valve Kits

Tein Tie Rods for Nissan 240sx S13/S14 89-98 (Inners & Outers)

Tein Tie Rods for Nissan 240sx S13/S14 89-98 (Inners & Outers)
Tein Tie Rods for Nissan 240sx S13/S14 89-98
These come complete with both passenger and driver side inners and outer tie rods.

Strengthened Tie Rod Improved durability and increased steering wheel cut off angle. This will allow for a higher steering angle at full steering wheel lock. All for a reasonable price.

Superior Durability Tein tie rods are designed to be stronger than original equipment found on the 240SX (S13 and S14). During hard sport driving, breaking and bending of the tie rods will now be reduced.

Increased Steering Wheel Cut Off Angle Tein tie rods are adjustable to give you more steering angle at full steering wheel lock. Original equipment tie rods offer limited steering wheel rotation, while Tein tie rods allow for increased rotation.

Excellent Option For Drifting Tein tie rods can be adjusted for more steering angle for when you counter steer. This will in turn create deeper drift angles.

* Tein tie rod and tie rod ends can NOT be used in combination with the original equipment tie rod and tie rod ends. (Well, actually the s14 oem will interchange with tein inner and outer but we dont sell seperatly)

Greddy Turbo Elbow SR S13/S14/S15 11920100

What can we say, this thing is awesome!

The craftmanship put into this is unreal for the price. Hand made rolled steel. The welds are done by Tig. By far the best turbo extension(elbow) out on the market that FITS the US Left hand drive car. YEP! this one actually clears the steering shaft unlike those Ebay ones which were made for Right Hand Drive models.

The best part is the diverter that is in the elbow that lets turbo exhaust gases not interchange with the wastegate gases. This makes less restriction on your internal wastegate to allow better flow and response.

Another reason why this GReddy elbow is superior to all others is that it actually included new STUDS for the turbo outlet and new hardware for downpipe. AND S13 Skinny o2 sensor owners can now retain their stock o2 sensor because it includes an o2 adaptor. Otherwise other elbows on the market make you buy a Fatty 02 sensor for an additional $95!!!!

This elbow fits ALL SR20DET Motors using T25 or T28 Turbos. Can be used with GT2871 also.

S15 Spec R turbos use a small wastegate diverter that will hit the Greddy diverter. So cutting off the greddy diverter that extrudes past the 5bolt mounting flange is needed to fit properly

OEM SR20DET Timing Chain - Good Invesment

The oem SR20DET Timing Chain is a no-brainer to replace when either doing a headgasket or oil pump. The timing chain takes a beating on SR's, especially if you are high-reving your motor during racing. Last thing you need is the chain to break and cause a huge loss in your pocket. Timing chains can stretch over time, causing too much play, which can wear timing chain guides rapidly or even cause the chain to snap. So next time you are working on your engine overhaul, think about investing in a new timing chain for a safe peice of mind.

SEMA is Around the Corner!

Every year our industry gets together with vendors, buyers, and manufactures to show the new upcoming and greatest products out for the automotive scene. SEMA is held usually the first week in November. And of course, we all go to SEMA to talk "business". However during that time, no one is at the shop! That means we actually close our business for a couple days to make our way out to Las Vegas, Nevada. This year our days we are going out there is a tuesday through thursday. Since we will not be at the shop to fulfill orders, take phone calls and ship out products, we will be offering a "SEMA SPECIAL" page that will list a bunch of popular parts at COST!

But the biggest question we ask ourselves is, what products do we offer at the special price? So we decided that it would be best to hear from the our customers on what they want. This way we can better prepare our shelves with the products that are going to move on special. So please email us, comment here, or hit us up on FACEBOOK!
