1400HP Acura vs. 1300HP Nissan GT-R – Drag Racing

November 8th, 2022

These are two very scary pieces of machinery. There are two phrases that warn of impending doom for the competition. They are English Racing and Extreme Turbo Systems (ETS). This Acura is closely associated with both. T1 Race Development are no slouches either. They built the Nissan GT-R. Needless to say, we are in for quite a drag race today.

The 1994 Acura Integra GSR is outfitted with a turbocharged 4-cylinder engine and a 4-speed manual (PPG with a billet bell housing) gearbox. It has been modified with an all-wheel drivetrain from a variety of Honda SUVs. The motor is a semi-stock B18Z 1.9-liter block with a B16 cylinder head. The crankshaft is Type-R with BME connecting rods and pistons. The block is Darden sleeved and the head is loaded with GSC camshafts and valvetrain components. The turbo is a Precision Next Gen 7685. A set of (dual) 2600cc fuel injectors help to quench this thirsty beast. It’s also running a methanol injection to keep things cool. He’s making approximately 65 psi of boost (@ 11,000 RPM) and 1,400HP. Kaboom!

We all know that the all-wheel drive 2015 Nissan GT-R comes with a twin turbocharged 3.8-liter V6, right? Well, this one is stroked out to 4.1-liters (like the big boys do it). The twin turbochargers are 7675s. Although he’s only claiming 1,300hp, he can ramp up to 2,200hp – surprise! He also has nitrous. On second thought, this might be more of a David vs Goliath thing – but wait, how’d that turn out.
