Titan Time!

Right folks - I am now the proud owner (thanks to the persuasion tactics of our Ben at GTC) of a full 90mm Titan. I thought long and hard and Iain at Litchfield had some great ideas but simply the 750 mile round trip was the crunchers.

Anyway at first glance it looks fabulous with blue tips and stunning engineering. My local exhaust place (know they guys very well and want to take a whole day for all of them to do it and all get involved - (local trade are always the best) and photos and videos. The are also trying to find a 4 wheel drive rolling road as they are as curious as to any power gains as I am.

Will keep you all posted on the fit - am migrating from 80 mm steel y pipe......

The first drive after fitting a Titan is a real mind blower! It's awesome. Just make sure you find a tunnel to drive under.... you'll be there for a few hours. lol

Take it you're getting a custom tune from Ben too?

Be careful on rolling roads as the car can kick up a fuss

Haha, congrats Rog, I knew you'd succumb to the Dark Side eventually!

I'm sure you will love the Titan and if you haven't already, you need a Cobb to really make it sing and turn your car into a proper Godzilla...

Thanks folks - David thought you might chip in haha! Waiting on your MY11?

What was that about rolling roads as due on one at Halifax with GTROC in March I think it is just after fitting Titan so be curious to see what figures come out ( and yes David don't need to lecture me about rolling roads being different I will take with pinch of salt haha)

It is certainly light I will give Ben that! Looks stunning as hell too - might just keep it out on living room floor actually.

Rog,

My Titan is sat at RB Motorsport waiting to be fitted to my car. Delayed getting it fitted as have now opted to replace my Milltek "Y" pipe with the Titan so that won't arrive until next week & then both will be fitted by RB on the 28th

Will also be at the Halifax GTROC rolling road event next month.

Installed my new Cobb yesterday & uploaded the GTC Custom Tune & holy fcuking moley it's awesome.

Can't wait to ge the zorst fitted to feel the full force of Stage 2

Fabulous - look forward to meeting. Should be a great event and Arcam is popping across too. Be good to put some faces to avatars.

Good news on the exhaust - will be good to compare - not convinced I want to do Cobb as the warranty is quite important to me (yes I know that sounds pussy but am fine with that ;-)

Very happy & so looking forward to getting the zorst fitted.

Didn't bother with the stage 1 or 2 as Ben had already emailed me the GTC Custom tune so went for that from the off as works perfectly with or without an aftermarket cat-back system & stock intakes. Only mechanical mod required for the Custom tune is an aftermarket "Y" pipe & I have the Milltek on until the 28th when it's being replaced with the Titan.

The difference is epic As well as the performance increases, it's actually a smoother drive across all areas/gears/revs including just an 80mph cruise on the motorway. Did a few 0-60 runs with the Cobb in & got a sniff over 3.2 secs twice with no problems & that was with just a normal launch. Sure that will go lower with the full Titan on & using Launch Control

Sounds like it will be an intersting comparison between your Custom Tunbe and my stock with Titan to see what the difference is.....should be a good day!

Well that's about seals the deal then.....will need to get one sorted....and figure out to hide it from the enemy who has quite firmly told me i should not be spending any more money on my various toys for a while..can we all pretend that AP's cost £50

Mate of mine is selling a virtually brand new AP for £650. Only been used twice, still has plastic film on screen etc. Unmarked in box with instructions.

PM me if anyone's interested.

They are £900 new inc VAT.

Lovely bit of kit. Very tempted with one of these myself. Beautiful noise and really gives the GTR the voice that it should have had to start with.

What are people's thoughts on installing a Titan without a custom Cobb tune? Would it technically be better (safer) to get a custom ecu remap to compliment the new hardware and are there are any issues with just bolting on the titan?

From what I understand, with a free flowing exhaust and no custom tune the car can run lean which is not a good thing apparently

So to answer your question, Yes, it would be safer to get a custom ecu remap.

Fueling and boost wise totally safe no need for a custom calibration on exhausts. But in combo with a tune works well, generally 35's with better flowing exhaust less restriction, dp's can take little more ign timing

Got my full Titan being fitted on Monday & I can't wait.

I'd certainly suggest getting a Custom tune, you may as well take full advantage of the free flowing zorst. I got my custom tune from GTC & it will compliment the new worst perfectly.
