Okada Projects (OKD) presents Nissan GT-R Plasma Direct coil upgrades
Okada Projects have just released a Plasma Direct coil upgrade for the Nissan GT-R. The units are specifically designed for Godzilla owners who are running higher than stock amounts of boost, and thus pushing the factory coils beyond their capacity to create adequate spark.
Continued after the jump.
There are three things that are needed to make power in a gasoline engine; air, fuel and spark. If you just increase boost and lean out the air/fuel ratio the motor will pop. If you dump too much fuel into the combustion chamber you run the risk of washing out the cylinder liners. Add too much air and fuel without upgrading ignition power and it was all for nothing. All three of these factors must be fine tuned and increased proportionally in order to extract the full potential of any engine setup.
The solution for GT-R owners feeling ignition problems at high boost levels could be a set of Plasma Direct upgraded coils from Okada Projects. Compared to the OE coils, the OKD units are a direct fit offering stronger spark throughout the entire rev band and are a reasonable solution for only $1,395.
OKD has been providing power parts to record setting GT-R racers around the world.
Garage Saurus’ drag and time attack R32 GT-Rs
SAURUS GTR Skyline, equipped with Okada Projects Plasma Direct Coil.
SAURUS is a tuning shop located in “Saitama” Japan, and has a good reputation with their great technological strength.
SAURUS GTR was built and tuned with an attempt to appeal the quality and superiority of Greddy and OS Giken’s parts.
After shake down on October 2004, SAURUS GTR made a debut and won the JDDA Drag series marking the stunning record of 8.7 second. And in December, SAURUS GTR blasted Tsukuba Time Attack to a first place clocking in at 56.6 second.
It proved that Drag machine is also capable to compete as a Time Attack machine.
M-Speed’s time attack R34 GT-R
Did it again!!!
Champion, two years in a row!
The M-Speed R34 Skyline won the first place in December 2007 Tsukuba Circuit, shortening the time to 54.481 seconds.
The M-Speed R34 Skyline, equipped with a Okada Projects Plasma Direct coil blasted the Tsukuba Circuit to a 1st place podium finish at this years 17th annual Revspeed Super Battle, clocking in at 55.230 seconds.
Midori Seibi Center’s time attack R34 GT-R
Midori is a specialty shop for GTR in Japan..
Mr. Uchinaga, the owner of Midori, has a cognisant knowledge for Nissan GTR.
Midori has conducted many prototype tests necessary for developing Okada Projects ignition products.
PLASMA DIRECT (PAT)
A revolution in ignition technology!!
The Plasma Direct is the ignition coil with a high power amplifier built in to it.
The Plasma Directs produce 4 times more spark energy than stock coils and also generate an ultra fast multi spark discharge of 10 sparks up to highest RPM.
The spark amperage is increased 100%, allowing the spark to reach many more molecules and therefore accelerate the ignition and combustion process. This is extremely important in forced induction applications but also improves the performance of normally aspirated engines.
The Plasma Direct will increase horsepower and torque throughout the entire rpm range. This upgrade will also reduce fuel consumption. Even the engines with a legendary smoothness will be further refined with the Plasma Direct upgrade. Our Plasma Directs are OBD II compliant and C.A.R.B. approved.
Installation is easy. Direct bolt-in to the engine, no splicing or cutting into stock wiring, simply replace the stock coils with our Plasma Direct Coils and ready to go!
