Gran Turismo 5: All Tuners Tested

All of the cars in here will be named in alphabetical order by the name of their manufacturer, then model. This means A-Z on both counts, in case you don’t know.
All of the cars you see here have their results put up here for the general testing that they undertook, the tests of which can be seen above in the first post. I will also put their overall ranking to the side as well of the results. Finally, I will be listing the parts they have all been fitted with following the listing of their results, and power and weight will be listed after this. So, let’s begin…

AEM S2000: 461bhp, 1155kg
Parts fitted: Aerodynamics (20/50), Titanium Semi-Racing Exhaust, 6 Speed Close-Ratio Transmission, Fully Customisable LSD, Height-Adjustable Sports Kit
Tyres: Comfort: Soft
Class: Drift Machine
And so, we begin with the AEM S2000. An American-tuned drift machine, which, as you can tell by the stats, was built for drifting a lot. Unfortunately, this hurts it in a straight line quite a bit, although not anywhere near as badly as other drift machines in this game.
On Route X, it wasn’t really terribly brilliant. The Comfort Soft tyres cost it so much acceleration and to be honest the top speed was not a very high amount either. But on Grand Valley, while it didn’t get a great lap time, it proved that it was a truly good drift machine, with plenty of slideability, which was completely controllable and didn’t worry me much at all. It’s one of the slightly more extreme S2000s, but nothing too bad. Job well done in terms of fun, but does that make it an overall greatness? We’ll have to see how well it does overall later on.

Amuse Carbon R (R34) ’04: 594bhp, 1123kg
Parts fitted: Aerodynamics (0/15), Titanium Racing Exhaust, 6 Speed Close-Ratio Transmission, Height-Adjustable Sports Kit
Tyres: Sports: Soft
Class: Higher Tier
Ah, the Amuse Carbonara. Genuinely terrible in GT4, thanks to acceleration that rivalled that of a tortoise, it’s here now and the accelerational problems have largely been fixed. This makes the car so much better now.
0-60 was obviously not rapid, as it’s an FR with all this power. But it shot off from there and got some good speed. Generally speaking, it could be a lot faster, but for some idiotic reason, it’s been stuck with a 0/15 aero wing, which makes it worse on the track. Still, this is also probably the tuner with the highest HP when fully modded – making a total of 740bhp with a high RPM turbo kit added.

Parts fitted: Aerodynamics (20/35), Sports Exhaust, 6 Speed Close-Ratio Transmission, Height-Adjustable Sports Kit
Tyres: Sports: Soft
Class: Middle Tier
Super Leggera! :D Have to say, this does look good from most angles.
In a straight line, it’s not terribly epic, but it managed to get a good time in on GVS, proving its track based style. However, you just wish it were faster to be honest. Thankfully, you can do enough modification to this thing, but we’re not here for that. So, decent, but not put to its best ability.

Parts fitted: Aerodynamics (20/50), Titanium Racing Exhaust, 6 Speed Close-Ratio Transmission, Height-Adjustable Sports Kit
Tyres: Sports: Soft
Class: Higher Tier
Here is one of the first truly fast tuners in this test – the S2000 GT1. Originally seen in GT2, merely as a Honda, then made an Amuse in GT4, it was pretty quick – one of the fastest. That’s mainly stayed here, though it’s been dwarfed quite a bit now.
540hp is plenty of hp and gives the car superb acceleration, plus all the extra downforce gives it good cornering. Top speed though is bad.

Amuse S2000 GT1 Turbo: 629bhp, 1120kg
Parts fitted: Aerodynamics (20/50), Titanium Racing Exhaust, ‘Standard Transmission’ (actually a 7-speed gearbox non-existant in a standard S2000), Fully Customisable LSD, Fully Customisable Suspension
Tyres: Sports: Soft
Class: Top Class
Right…we meet again. This is the Amuse S2000 GT1 Turbo, supposedly the ‘fastest’ tuner of the game. Yet here you can clearly tell here…it really isn’t. Oh sure, it was the fastest around Grand Valley by a full second and a bit, but then it was beaten from 0-60 by 5 others, and the CT230R beat it in everything else. And two cars managed to get higher speeds than it, despite having the best power to weight ratio. Riiight.
Oh yeah, and while this car has some sliding degrees, and its overall speed cannot be denied, I’m sorry, but this is quite frankly just so emotionless, it has become one of my pet dislikes among cars. Because…think of it this way.
1) Honda builds a happy, cheery S2000.
2) Amuse would like to borrow this happy, cheery S2000 to make it more ‘fighting fit’.
3) The happy, cheery S2000 arrives at Amuse’s factories.
4) Then Amuse completely tears it apart, leaving no remnant of its previous form.
5) Amuse fits parts of its own to change what was once a happy, cheery S2000 into this absolute monster.
I’m sorry, but doing such acts to a mere S2000 is just criminal. A ‘get ripped’ scam. In fact, any scam. If it were a Skyline, good. Those have next to no limits. But I’m afraid this is breaking too far from the S2000 tuning norm to give it a single soul point for me. And just to tell you, the AI drives this car to victory in almost all the events it’s in. Shows you something, doesn’t it?

Amuse S2000 R1 ’04: 272bhp, 1120kg
Parts fitted: Titanium Semi-Racing Exhaust, Height-Adjustable Sports Kit
Tyres: Sports: Hard
Class: S2000 Mania
Now we have the first of the light tunes in the test, the S2000 R1. I tried this before and was rather underwhelmed, to be honest. I thought it would be a bit more fun – and that hasn’t changed here unfortunately.
It is actually moderately faster than would be expected of a car of this caliber though. 0-60 in 4.9 wasn’t exactly expected from me, and besides which, the majority of the S2000 was still there. However, the lack of fun hits it rather badly for me.

Amuse S2000 Street Version ’04: 263bhp, 1190kg
Parts fitted: Sports Exhaust, Fixed Sports Kit
Tyres: Sports: Hard
Class: S2000 Mania
And now we come to the lightest Amuse S2000, the Street Version. I hadn’t driven this in this game yet, so most of the feel of this car wasn’t known to me yet.
But I must say, it is very good. You can flick it anywhere – anywhere, and it’ll stay intact. And yet, all around, it is still an S2000 in nearly every sense of the word. I might not have done it much justice with its speed rating but either way this is a ball of fun. Buy it for the experience.

Art Morrison Corvette’60: 548bhp, 1437kg
Parts fitted: Titanium Semi-Racing Exhaust, 6 Speed Close-Ratio Transmission, Height-Adjustable Sports Kit
Tyres: Sports: Soft
Class: American Muscle
Now we start with the first of the American muscle cars here, and in my opinion what I thought was the best. The Art Morrison Corvette.
Bloody hell, this one was quick. Even the Amuse S2000 GT1 Turbo was left behind in top speed – 207.7mph from this is very good. And in a straight line, it does better than the other American muscle cars off the line too. Yes, of course, it’s not great on a track – it’s too heavy for most of them. But on tracks like Monza with massive straights – beware.

Parts fitted: Aerodynamics (20/50), Titanium Racing Exhaust, 6 Speed Close-Ratio Transmission, Fully Customisable LSD, Fully Customisable Suspension
Tyres: Comfort: Soft
Class: Drift Machine
Never has Comfort Soft tyres ruined a car as much as it does this.
With CS tyres on, this thing is getting nowhere. 0-60 time – terrible. Track time – terrible. And to be honest, if you are actually sliding it, it is decent, but it is too easy to spin it out. Call in for a pair of racing tyres, quickly.

Tyres: Comfort: Soft
Class: Drift Machine
The Blitz’s Standard Cousin might be lighter and less powerful, but alas the situation is not much better with this.
Things are slightly better to start with, but beyond the point where tyres don’t matter, the Blitz isn’t quite good enough. And while it might seem like an easier car to use in general, it wasn’t as fun for me to be honest. Wasn’t quite enough power after stepping out of the Premium Blitz. Essentially, this is nowhere near as good as the Premium and therefore almost pointless, but there is one feature you should look out for. Light-up intercooler. That’s cool. :cool:

Buick Special: 589bhp, 1364kg
Parts fitted: 6 Speed Close-Ratio Transmission, er…that’s it. No really.
Tyres: Sports: Soft
Class: American Muscle
Here we are then with what I like to call the Big Boss of the American Muscle class. Mainly because it just looks like the biggest. But it’s actually the lightest – how does it weight 1364kg anyway?!
Either way though, despite having more power and less weight than the Art Morrison Corvette, it is actually beaten by it in…er…all of the categories here. It’s just rubbish. It’s more wheelspinny off the line, somehow not as fast and clearly you’d be much better off on a lion on the track. Oooh dear. :tdown:

Parts fitted: Titanium Semi-Racing Exhaust, 5 Speed Close-Ratio Transmission, Height-Adjustable Sports Suspension
Tyres: Sports: Soft
Class: American Muscle
And already we now have the American Muscle cars covered. This is the Ford Trans-Cammer, and it is the most powerful of all tuned cars when stock. Not to mention the heaviest.
As a result, you’d expect it to miss the mark the Corvette set by an even wider margin than the Special set. Not so. The extra weight helps keep it stable and it had an all around good run down the straight. That said, it was also the only of the three cars in the class that hit its limiter, despite having a 5th gear that is slightly taller than most NBA all-stars. On a track, it was the calmest and fastest, which is amazing when I remind you it’s the heaviest and most powerful. Very well done overall.

I fear I may have slightly overestimated the speed of this Back to the Future style car (for reference, see the PS3 at the back).
I might have overestimated how much its big weight would really affect it, and how there isn’t as much power as would be thought. But either way, I think this thing looks damn superb, and on the track, it was just about scrapped out of the top 10 by some superb late performers. I think Infiniti should sell a version this modified in real life. I feel it will sell very well.
Oh, and also, JR Rocha, RIP. Your machine’s great.

HKS CT230R ’08: 601bhp, 1068kg
Parts fitted: Aerodynamics (20/50), Titanium Racing Exhaust, 5 Speed Close-Ratio Transmission, Fully Customisable LSD, Fully Customisable Suspension
Tyres: Sports: Soft
Class: Top Class
Aaaaah. Now here’s something I’m experienced with, and know and love – the HKS CT230R.
That said, it has been a scarily long time since I drove one of these stock. In fact, my main resource of CT230Rness has come from the better – and betterer – AdrenaTune HKS CT230R, which is genius.
This is less powerful than that and also uses a full type of tyre grade lower, but still I was proud to see it was setting very good results. Plus, with the 5 Speed Close-Ratio Transmission, it actually felt ‘faster’ off the line – since the ratios on it are shorter.
That said, I was shocked to find that the CT230R was not the fastest car from 0-60. And that in the Max G-Force category, it came not 1st, not 2nd, but 4th!
Of course, on a track, it was absolutely visceral, with plenty of speed and since Spec II plenty of grip too. Obviously, the top speed is a bit of a killer but you can’t deny its accelerational values though. I urge you to find a tune that makes it better.

Tyres: Comfort: Soft
Class: Drift Machine
The CT230R’s lesser known Standard workmate now takes to the stage, and it’s another drift machine, which means another deficiency of total acceleration to start with.
That said, this thing has a pretty good 0-100 time, but this is also because it is fitted with the worst fitting transmission in the world. Being limited to 150 in this is like being limited to holding hands with your girlfriend – and that’s it. You just cannot get the best of it, and I would, like all drift machines, get some tyres first, then get a much, much better transmission.

This one is a good contender among tuning cars – the HPA TT. Hold onto your seats, this one’s rapid.
As expected, it performed with aplomb on Route X. It even managed to pull off more G than the CT230R – though I suspect this is down to the lower aero value. It was also a top 5er on Grand Valley Speedway, and it has to be said that this was one of the most well rounded of the bunch. If you can justify the price tag, buy it.

This one got some very odd results. The HPA R32 is a bit of an oddball really – mainly down to its dodgy powerband with all the extra turbo power.
Still, it did decently well off the line, as rapidly as its results decreased anyway. Its Max Speed result was all too low though – I know I’ve done more than 172 in GT4 with the stock tranny I know. PD probably made the ratios too close here. It’s quite a weird car to feel your way around, this one… :indiff:

This here is one of the much more respected ones in the tuning business – the Mine’s Skyline.
The Premium is hugely well balanced in every respect – top 5 in all 7 speed tests – something nothing else managed, and very much among the top in the Overall categories too. This one is a peach, and if you haven’t tried it, you should. Must also say how good this thing was in GT5:p for me :tup: Took me away from my previous Mine’s Skyline rivalry a little.

!!!!!!! This thing is bloody fast!!!!!!
On face value, this and the Premium Mine’s are the same (ignore the hp figure – they’re ‘the same’ when you consider this one’s fully broken in and the Premium isn’t), but they are in fact, completely different. This is because of two things: the aerodynamics on the Standard, and the elongated transmission on the Standard.
What this actually does is make this car the near-best tuner in a straight line in the whole game. I was literally shocked to see this thing could better a CT230R in a race from 0-60 – and while it doesn’t match it from there, it manages to be a full 5 mph faster than the Premium Mine’s and beats the nearest competitor, the Art Morrison Corvette, by half a mph – all without hitting the limiter! Yes, on a track, it is slower, obviously. But really, I swear you might actually notice the difference in a straight line.
Unfortunately, I do have a few mutually exclusive rivalries with this car, which all happen to come from GT4, and prevent me from liking this thing properly. In case you’re wondering what they are, see the same problems the S2000 GT1 Turbo has and transfer them to this. Still…fast. :cool:

Parts fitted: Titanium Racing Exhaust, 5 Speed Close-Ratio Transmission, Fully Customisable LSD, Torque Distributing Centre Differential, Height-Adjustable Sports Kit

Class: Middle Tier
Technically speaking, this Mine’s Evo VI should be very fast. It has 414bhp, which combined with the 4WD, a mere 1210kg weight and the starting 25/75 torque distribution, this should be very fast.
Unfortunately, I’m not overly hopeful. This thing is ridiculously limited down a straight, and the lack of aero just means you have less cornering, it doesn’t do much to help your acceleration sadly. This is effectively kind of the closest you can get to an Evo FQ400 stock in this game, but it’s in an Evo VI body. Disappointment.

The Mugen should theoretically be a very good contender among the lighter S2000s in this game. It has the power to hang with them, at least.
Unfortunately, someone stupider than most people decided this should come with Comfort: Softs, and look what it has done. Any hope the Mugen had of getting any good result was completely ruined, and as a result, it stood no chance in any of the tests. Even the TRD Celica!!! beat it around Grand Valley. Avoid this or get a set of SH tyres.

This really was not as fast as the Nismo badge would suggest it could be. In fact, I would go ahead and call this one quite lousy…you can do so much better with this one.
It was the slowest car not on Comfort Softs around Grand Valley, which shows that this thing just does not go fast enough. You might wanna invest a tune in this, but really, you could just get another car for less than a tune.

This one’s a lot better from Nismo. You really wish it could go a lot faster though. G-Force was high – even the Amuse S2k Turbo was beaten, but that said, you won’t be beating S2k Turbos with this little speed.
The 400R has plenty of power and 4WD but also a big fat 1550kg to haul about, which really puts the car quite a way down the pecking order among tuners. It is fast, but you can do better.

This is basically exactly the same as every single 350Z you will ever run into. Stock 350Zs could technically get these exact values, and this is probably the most average tuner in the whole game. Look at how well-rounded the results are and everything…
That said there is a decent amount of modification you can do to this thing. But we’re not here to do modification…we’re here to do testing. And this, in the testing, was very average. Boring.

This is where Nismo cleans up and shows its :censored: heels. This thing is ludicrously fast by most standards and is brilliant on a track. The Nismo Fairlady Z Z-tune.
Like the Mine’s GT-R ’00 I have had numerous disagreements with this thing in GT4. Which I forgot to take into account on my soul rating. :lol: Either way, this is the Nismo to get if you are looking for speed. This has more than its fair share.

This is a car designed more to eat up straight lines than eat up corners. It is more powerful than the Z Z-tune by a good chunk, but also heavier and it comes on SH. Still, it is a top car at the top end.
This is probably a bit too good for ‘High’ Road-Spec to be honest, it’s quite possibly the fastest you can get on Sports Hards. Use this thing well if you get it: on tracks like Sarthe, it’ll be very effective.

The slightly slower, older chassied brother to the R-tune, although not necessarily a slouch. Coincidentally also comes in at exactly 500PP, though you could have fooled me. :sly:
Either way, this is also meant for straight lines. You know that with a 190mph top speed. Given the moderate power deficiency to the GT-R R-tune, that’s not a bad deficit to it. Much like the R-tune, this one’s a straight track monster, so take it there and give it its food.

This is Opera’s first tune, and the one I hadn’t tried in this game before this point. However, as it turns out, it has a slight crisis on its hands, but we’ll get onto that. Very, very soon.
But either way, this Opera was pretty decently fast and was particularly impressive at the top end, maxing out at 185. Driving it like mad was also pretty fun, and I thought of it as a pretty good machine.

Class: S2000 Mania (this one was difficult to decide. It comes on Sports Hards…but it certainly doesn’t look road legal. S2000 Mania seemed logical even though it is far faster than anything else in it)
This is something I’ve got experience with. The Opera S2000, built not necessarily for speed it seems, but more to give you a better ride than you’ll ever get in a life time.
It also manages to put the Opera 350Z in a royal catastrophe. It manages to be faster in everything bar 1 mile (where the power comes into play and even then there’s just a tenth in it) and Max Speed (very power based). Light weight destroys the 350Z, not to mention a little aero too. This one I can certainly recommend.

One thing…the sound.
The rotary engine, with this exhaust, sounds totally amazing. Because it is what a rotary should always be. The area where you can hear the damn thing rotating…it sounds like it’s almost fapping. And you should be too, to that bloody engine noise. Try and keep up :lol:
In terms of speed though, this was a very good one. I think I might have put it in the wrong tier though. :lol: The low point in the speed tests was the top speed, as would be expected of a rotary engine with bad torque. But the rest – the big aerodynamics and particularly that full suspension kit – make it lethal on a track. Recommended buy.

This is the lightest of any of the tuners here and probably quite notable too with the way its exhausts work. I haven’t fitted a Sports Exhaust yet to see what it does but by the looks of it you don’t lose any power.
Obviously the low engine power is a low point but then you also have it revving to very high levels. FF is a slight low point but it doesn’t affect the Civic Type R in any way, obviously.

And here we now have a completely unique tuner, partially because it’s so slow, and partially because it’s a hybrid. The Spoon CR-Z, probably the best tuner here for pure spec racing. I can imagine that would be very joyful.
Obviously, it was beaten in all the speed test categories here. OR WAS IT? Yes, it did beat one TRD Celica in the G-Force test, but that was it really for the CR-Z. Poor thing. Among tuners, it’s like the Indy Colts from Tecmo Super Bowl (thumbs up if you ever played that game).

This is basically the same as the Civic albeit a lot heavier. And made an Integra. And also with a higher revving engine – 10000rpm is the max of all tuners for the most RPM to get peak power.
This thing is fast enough when you’re driving it, but the AI doesn’t seem to like driving it much at all. That puts me in mind of a Honda race car – the Gathers Drider Civic Race Car ’98 – something I need to try again. Badly…

Here is Spoon’s best work, their S2000 tune, forever locked in battle with Amuse’s similarly specced R1. And while it beats it in some, it does not beat it in others.
However, Spoon’s tune can at least slide a little. Amuse’s cannot. The Spoon also gets better top end and extra power helps it get better 0-100 and 1 mile times too. It’s your call, really.

This thing had a very difficult soul rating to work out, as there is no other Chaser in this game to base it off of. Therefore I just went by what was there and it wasn’t that high. Speed wasn’t that great given the big power in front – the weight really does take its toll here.

This Trueno is literally completely on par with the Spoon Civic for stats. It is just 5kg heavier and only a few hp short. But in fact, this turned out to be a massive disappointment. A very slow and crushing disappointment.
It was very consistent with its results, granted – a 36th in every speed test barring Grand Valley – which does kinda say something: this is one for the track. But it is still nowhere near close to the Civic despite the stats saying otherwise. Great car, but only for Initial D fans, really. :p

And here we now have the TRD Celica, which may seem like 2nd worst to the CR-Z…you’d think. Because actually, as you can tell, this thing packs a big punch.
Even the Mine’s Lancer Evolution VI could not get as fast a top speed as the TRD Celica on Route X. And in addition, on Grand Valley, it beat the Mugen S2000. Most people underestimate this TRD, but it hang in quite well here, I found. Well, not off the line, but whatever.

This is one of the more unique tuners here – an FF with 294bhp, quite possibly the fastest FF in the game in fact. Yet the results in the speed test were very underwhelming.
It did a decent job in top speed and on Grand Valley it was very good despite the FF drivetrain. If I were Trial, to be honest, I would probably put this to FR. It doesn’t really work, having something like this as an FF.
Well, there you have it. Your guide to all 38 tuners in the game, and their overall results in every test.
