GReddy Performance Products Unveils New Go-Fast Parts & Accessories

No SEMA? No problem! GPP shows off new fully-built cylinder heads, turbo kit updates, intercoolers and more.

It's the end of October and if the last 15 or so years serve as any sort of indicator, I should be packing my bags and heading to Las Vegas for the annual SEMA Show rather than snapping photos and collecting info at GReddy Performance Products' headquarters. Alas, you're well aware that SEMA, along with most other major automotive events this year, was cancelled due to some bug that's been going around, but for our friends at GReddy, the show must go on.

Announced earlier this month, the group set out to create their own version of SEMA, dubbed GPP Live, right out of their Lake Forest, Calif., offices and invited industry folk to come take a look at what's new, what they have in the works, and also check out a parking lot full of some pretty incredible builds—some of which you've seen right here on the Super Street Network.

Honing In On The Future

In the realm of new parts development, the crew at GPP constantly has new goods in the works. You're familiar with their street legal turbo kits and exhaust systems, and those continue to progress with more and more part numbers regularly, but the group has their hands in other components that you might not know about. Fortunately, I was able to get into the showroom before the event took place in order to get a closer look and a little info on what's new for 2021.

Head Games

During SEMA last year, GReddy teased complete performance head packages for the RB, 2JZ and VR crowd. That program is in full swing, and one of the most interesting aspects is that they don't require a core.

That's right, you can purchase outright a complete head with CNC port work, high-performance valvetrain and cams.

Added to the mix this time around is this Honda B-series head that's received the full CNC port treatment and valve/valvetrain work, in addition to these nicely integrated o-ring grooves that eliminate the need for a traditional gasket.

Manly Manifolds

You've seen GReddy intake manifolds bolted to numerous feature cars over the years and they note that they offer single 90mm throttle body versions as well as ITB compatible manifolds. Able to support up to 600hp, there's also a larger version that takes that target power number up substantially.

Seeing the GReddy logo plastered across the face of a front-mount intercooler has been a staple in the import performance world for decades, and now the brand is moving over to billet aluminum end tanks, as shown here with these prototypes.

Once fully ready for production, these will be available as a standalone product or they can be paired with GReddy's line of intercooler cores. The modular concept will give end-users and fabricators the ability to design their ideal cooling set up rather than having to work around a pre-determined design.

Stay Cool...

Also new on the cooling front are these new oil coolers designed for the upper grill of the FK8 Civic Type R and late model Subaru WRX/STI. Additional factory hardware behind the 2020 and up Civic Type R bumper, right where the original GReddy oil cooler kit resided on previous models, prompted a new design.

GReddy's current FV series blow-off valve will soon get this smooth, matte black Cerakote treatment in a limited run of units. Gaining popularity in recent years after making a splash in the firearms industry, Cerakote is quickly becoming the go-to powder coat alternative that offers high-heat stability in a much thinner application.

This FV2 prototype will soon come to market and offers some ease of use in that it features an adjustable top-mounted knob to change valve pre-load rather than having to use any sort of tools.

Precious Metals

Universal and application-specific titanium options continue to increase at GReddy. The featherweight, precision welded canister-style mufflers have become increasingly popular.

Adding to the lineup is this larger, oval-style muffler in titanium that GReddy says is in its final testing phases and should be available next year. Based on its size and additional packing, it should offer a lower tone if that's what you're after.

Multiple titanium tips, available in various lengths and with extended, pie-cut turn down options are also available and easily bolt into place.

Boost in a Box

Emissions friendly and turbo kits don't often play nicely with one another but GPP takes pride in taking the necessary steps to make that a reality.

Their complete turbo kits, like this version for Nissan's VQ, was recently revised and features a GReddy T517Z turbo, mandrel bent downpipe (that will work with factory catalytic converter) and dual intercooler - one for each bank. All of the oil and coolant plumbing parts, couplers, gaskets and hardware that you need to boost your VQ are included with the kit.

If there's one consistent complaint about the heart of Honda's iconic roadster, it's the 2-seater's torque output. To remedy the lack of grunt, GReddy's GTX 2867R Gen II turbo leads the charge on its S2000 turbo kit. We had some fun with the kit on our project AP1 over the last few years.

The kit's stainless-steel cast turbo manifold has been updated and strengthened, and for AP2 owners with an F22C under the hood, Hondata's FlashPro is included in the kit and loaded with a 91-octane-friendly tune.

Another change you might notice on the AP2 display kit is this black air filter. GReddy's requisite blue Airinx filter now sports a more modern feel with a black outer portion and filter element.

The AP2 demo vehicle that GReddy had on display in the parking lot features some additional extras in the form of Cerakote piping, a blacked-out radiator fan barrier and the aforementioned black Airinx filter. It's a stark departure from the silver and blue combo that has accompanied GReddy's turbo kits for years and it ties into the S2000's bay nicely.

This Boxer engine display is fitted with GReddy's individual throttle body set up and turbo kit - a combination we saw on Brian Yeung's FR-S feature car.

Silver, black and polished GReddy radiator caps offer some additional variety for your bay.

We want to thank GReddy Performance Products for inviting us to their mini SEMA, GPP Live event and letting us have the run of their HQ. It's promising when an iconic brand continues to produce new, exciting performance goods even in light of a dismal year.

Putting down the first few sentences of a feature like this 1987 Honda CRX Si is a little tougher than usual. It’s not the familiar story of picking up an old, used Honda, adding wheels and a drop before giving in and going all out on a full-blown build. Furthermore, to be clear, it’s also

Rodrez: It’s the measuring stick that offers as much speculation and attempts to discredit driver achievement as it does real-world data and raw, obsessively focused attempts to chip away at the clock.

It’s safe to say that Angel Pena, owner of this supercharged 2008 Acura TSX, has a “type.” Having been enamored with Acura’s entry-level sedan ever since it was first introduced, he knew right away he’d get his hands on one, and eventually, he did just that.
