Some of you may remember that Bulletproof had our 11th Anniversary meet this past October 15th; some of you were even there! We had fifteen Bulletproof Select Showcase cars on display. The Bulletproof Select stickers were designed by our GT-R specialist, Kris. Great job, Kris – love the Option font.
Here’s the Bulletproof Select line-up. We were lucky to have extensive coverage of the meet by William Lee of Night-Import, as well as additional photos by James Younger and David Izrailov.
Check out all the carbon on that DreamzSport NSX. This thing caused quite a stir when it rumbled into the lot – full carbon fiber widebody, built motor with twin turbos, Brembo racing brake system, and finished off with some one-off vinyl graphics by the world famous Mana-P of MS-R Japan.

When this guy rolled in, all eyes were on him – you could tell that everyone knew and respected the lineage behind this hakosuka GT-R.
I think that reaction perfectly demonstrates the high-level of rides and owners who were at our event. The day was all about quality; you could tell that by the cars that showed up. But more importantly, the quality of the attendees was top-notch. There was no tension between different crews or drama. Everyone was just there to have a good time.
Thanks to Night-Import for covering the meet, K1 for allowing us to take over their parking lot, Phamish for providing the tasty banh mi, and everyone who came out to enjoy all of the above!
We recently received a literal “boat load” of Amuse parts here at 370ztune.com and Bulletproof Automotive. We’ve been shipping out these Vestito kits earlier for those clients who wanted them quick by air freight out of Japan. But for those who wanted the best price, our ocean freight container recently arrived and we snapped some pics of these beautiful new parts.
As Amuse’s US agent naturally we have a little extra for stock right now, and we’re always taking pre-orders as well.
We’re really excited about Andrew’s car locally as he’s the first to run the full Amuse exhaust and the Vestito kit in the US. I’ll post an update on his car in the future as he’s already done some great testing and feedback on the major power gains of the Amuse titanium exhaust.
To me, that front bumper is a pure work of art. Just look at what you usually cant see! That front under diffuser is beautiful!
I just wanted to show a couple of pictures here. It isnt too often that unpainted aero parts straight out of the box look this great!

I call these photos “Battle of the Titans”
Titanium exhausts by two industry titans: Powerhouse Amuse and Top Secret
These were comparison photos I took years ago and I just pulled from my archives to share. To be fair in the comparison, both exhausts are for the same application, the Z33 350Z. I still find it hilarious that Top Secret never had anyone proof read their exhaust tip etching when they designed it…to think that every Top Secret exhaust forever has misspelled their own company name on the tip…its fortunate that nobody at Top Secret knows English well enough to notice after all of these years. (It should read Top Secret Performance Engineering Service but they wrote it as “Engineerig” into the mold). Oops….well, its still way better than my ability to write Kanji.
Finally Amuse heard my cries to get actual product photos of all of their exhaust components. Now that I have those photos and have updated www.gt-rr.com today with all the current products and photos, I have a lot of explaining to do here.
You may notice on the GT-RR website that Amuse now has 9 exhaust components. Yes, 9! It actually is that complicated…
One of the many reasons I love Amuse is that they have gone way beyond what is necessary to develop the perfect exhaust system for every individual person for the GT-R. While other companies release one exhaust or two exhausts, Amuse recognizes that every client has different goals and needs, so they seek to offer the perfect solution for any user who appreciates the extreme quality and performance they offer.
I want to help make sense of this to our GT-R clients, because without a doubt it is very confusing without proper consultation. Ultimately however, nothing replaces proper one on one consultation over the phone or in person, and for that reason I’m personally the one doing that consultation on behalf of Bulletproof for all of our GT-R Amuse clients.
So…you want the perfect exhaust for your GT-R, which one is best for you?
