Vivid Racing put together a tuning program for the godzilla Nissan GT-R that improves performance and styling. With the addition of a Cobb Accessport ECU tune, the twin turbocharged V6 engine now produces 605 HP. These 60 ponies are a nice addition to the factory 545 horsepower. However, that large of a boost wasn’t just from the Cobb Accessport unit, a new Agency Power exhaust lightens the undercarriage and helps the car breathe easier.
