Vivid Racing Nissan GT-R

Saturday, August 18th, 2012:

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.

Vivid Racing BMW 135i

Tuesday, December 1st, 2009:


The latest project from Vivid Racing has been completed on the BMW 135i which received several modifications to try and hang with their previous Porsche Twin-Turbo project. Not only does the car perform inside, but looking good on the exterior was also a requirement. Vivid Racing hooked it up with a new aero kit from iCarbon, featuring a new front lip, aggressive rear diffuser, mirror covers, and trunk lip spoiler all made of carbon fiber. Becoming even more popular in the tuning scene are car wraps to give the vehicles a unique look, while also protecting the paint. This BMW 135i was wrapped in a Battleship Gray car wrap that can be peeled off at any time. Vehicle wraps are an investment worth checking out because they can last up to 5 years, and are priced at a fraction of what it costs to paint a new high end car.

Here we have a customers car from the American based tuners at Vivid Racing, a Porsche 997 C4S that received some expensive parts. Recently Vivid Racing released their Porsche 997 Twin-Turbo that accomplished a staggering 800 hp. For this car tuning project they started off by installing the NR Auto replica TechArt body kit, which gave it a new aggressive look. With the new car styling, the customer felt the need for aftermarket wheels to complete the aggressive body kit, and went with the HRE P43 wheels. The wheels measure 19×8.5 in the front, and 19×11 in the rear, and allows them to fit flush with new Porsche 997 widebody styling.

Vivid Racing 800HP Porsche 997 Twin-Turbo

Saturday, September 5th, 2009:


The guys from Vivid Racing have completed their Porsche 997 Twin-Turbo with outstanding results from the two Garrett GT3076rs turbos. Their goal was to obtain 800 crank horsepower, and after factoring in a 25 percent drivetrain loss on the Mustang Dyno, final numbers show 642 awhp and 616 ft lbs of torque. Using Softronic ECU flash technology they were able to pull everything together, and used VP 109 fuel to get these final performance numbers. On the dyno, the Porsche 997TT was run at 1.4 bar of boost, but if you are running on pump fuel of 91 octane, it is recommended to only run 1.0 bar of boost. With 93 octane you can run 1.2 bar of boost, and this is easily controlled with the Greddy Profec B Boost Controller.
