    • These are the components that go into a 1k+ hp Dodson Nissan GT-R dual clutch transmission build

      Dodson obviously has some of the strongest dual clutch transmissions in the aftermarket but what exactly does it take to get a Nissan GT-R dual clutch transmission to hold over 1000 horsepower and potentially 1000+ lb-ft of torque at the wheels?


      What you see in the pictures. Billet Design assembled this transmission with some of their own components and as you can see it is more involved than just new clutch discs.

      We are talking reinforced gear sets, extra plates, etc.

      Here is a small list of what is involved:

      • - Quality machined billet baskets
      • - Patented friction design
      • - Proprietary design heat-treated shims and steels
      • - Billet one piece inner basket
      • - Rigid alloy outer basket
      • - Heavy duty basket output bearing
      • - Light alloy forged pistons
      • - Ground oil pump gears
      • - Serviceable seals or seals for life seals
      • - CAD design and CNC machined

      COMPONENTS

      • - 20 x Exedy® heavy duty patented frictions
      • - 20 x Exedy® heavy duty heat treated & ground flat steels
      • - 1 x Heavy duty high tensile forged alloy piston for clutch A with viton piston seal
      • - 1 x Heavy duty high tensile forged alloy piston for clutch B with viton piston seal
      • - 1 x Heavy duty billet steel basket (clutch A)
      • - 1 x Heavy duty billet steel basket (clutch B)
      • - 1 x Heavy duty high tensile billet outer alloy basket
      • - 1 x Heavy duty high tensile inner steel basket & gear plate
      • - 2 x Heavy duty matched oil pump gears
      • - 6 x Clutch housing circlips
      • - 2 x High temp piston shaft seals
      • - 2 x Spring retaining circlips
      • - 1 x Clutch centre circlip


      Plus whatever Billet Design Motorsports is adding into the mix.

      It is no wonder transmission builds can easily top $10k and beyond in the GT-R world.

        Expensive, but still incredible that it can launch that much torque through an AWD car on slicks.
