Nissan R35 GTR GR6 Gearbox upgrades and maintenance

Nissan R35 GTR GR6 Gearbox upgrades and maintenance

The GR6 gearbox installed in the R35 GTR is a highly developed and sophisticated unit, with the responsibility to deliver the enormous power from the VR38DETT Engine to the road wheels. There are however, some well known inherent issues with the transmission that can be rectified with some preventative maintenance and upgrades from Auto Torque. For complete peace of mind we recommend having upgrades carried out before any costly issues arrive further down the line.

Replacement Bell Housing

Do you have the common Bell housing rattle? Here at Auto Torque we know this is a very common problem on many GTRs and within the lifetime of the car the Bell housing will need a replacement. As a result of this we have installed a large amount of revised design in order to silence these notoriously noises parts.

CNC Cir-clips

Perhaps the most widely known upgrade when discussing the GR6, are the notorious ‘cir-clips’. These small but vital parts were prone to failure in the early MY09 cars and resulted in very costly repairs for owners. A straightforward preventative upgrade is available and replaces three basic circlips for much more robust CNC machined items manufactured in the UK.

Gear Stops

Another advisable upgrade to prevent the over-selection of gears and synchromesh damage, is a set of eight gear stops. These upgrades can be installed in the valve body, without the requirement to fully disassemble the gearbox.

Solenoid Clips

These uprated solenoid clips are designed to replace the standard items that can become rounded off over time and allow the pistons to rotate.  This revised design is the answer to to stop this piston rotation from happening by clipping on to the centre of the piston and providing a stronger more durable edge for the selector fork to work against. Seen here clipped over the lower of the two pistons providing a much broader area to work against.
