Hi Edinburgh Newbie!

Hi All,

Please be kind to all my dumb ass questions as i am buying my first GT-R when i get home in a few weeks

I have at the moment a E92 M3, Ap brakes, Evolve De-cat exaust and re-map, BBS challenge wheels and lots of bits and bobs!

I am no stranger to modding and i assure you the GT-R wont remain std for long!

My car list in the last few years are a 996 c4s, a 996 tt, 997 c2s, alpina b6s, e60 m5, X5, X6, Range rover, Range rover sport, Z4, all modded,

though the New M3 is very nice i just feel like a change!

So what are the must do,s on modding a 10 my GT-R "Black edition"?

your thoughs are most welcome!!

Cheers, Robin.

You can go as bonkers as you like really, depending on how much £££ you want to spend.
I'd suggest better brakes and uprated anti roll bars for anything over 550bhp though.

A remap an Y pipe will get you to about 550bhp quite cheaply.
Have a look here for how the costs go up as the power does: Litchfield

I used Litchfield for mine. They are one of the few tuners out there that actually show the prices up front too, rather than having to ask. Which helps if you have time to think about it rather than keep contacting someone and asking daft questions.

Cool, but they are clawing it back now.

there you are

Hi Bro,

I knew you would be not far away!

I am getting the M3 parted out when i get home, NoBalls seem very good, i have forwarded you the e-mails,

I suspect this GT-R lark is going to make my M3 mods look like much cheapness!!

as for your 32...........my Vectra will whoop its ass as it never comes out your garage!!

We might be getting a night in dublin tomorrow....o dear that could get messy with the black lager.......

say hi to Jen

Cheers CT17!!!

no to import

I am not looking at a Import bud,

I am 99% sure it will be one from Noballs, they are cool with the M3 and the guy seems spot on, and i would like the main dealer fall back if all goes tits up!
I drove Robs GT-R in Hartlepool you may remeber and it was scary fast, very unlike my 550 Bhp 996 TT, more "Remote" i did wonder how long the grip would last, bear in mind that GT-R ended up on its Roof after the owner lost it in a damp corner, that has (and does) still worry me as i have no wish to park it in a feild in the highlands or the like.....

So what feedback do you get when a GT-R is getting near the end of its grip?

Best bang for buck is 650R from SVM/GTC, there's lots of build threads in the Projects(SVM) section.

GTC Titan exhaust
GTC Titan Y-pipe decat
GTC Turbo outlets
AccessPORT with GTC custom tune
GTC 80mm Intake
1000cc Injectors

Job done.

If want something bonkers quick, go 750R/850R, price jumps quite a bit though.

Hi Robin, I remember when you used to have your Scooby (John Banks from Scoobynet here).

The runflats are skittish in the wet to say the least. The difference in grip between dry and standing water is the most I've experienced in any car, certainly isn't an all weather supercar and not at all what you'd expect from an AWD drivetrain. Ben Linney and I thought there were lots going to end up crashing in the first winter they were in the UK, but it turned out not to be the case because they are actually quite good in the snow and similar to most things in ice.

Follow other cars through standing water where they go through fine will cause you a lot of grief though. If I lived on the West Coast it would be enough to put me off the car.

I wonder if the one you refer to going onto its roof was due to standing water?

Hi we only give one to one price's as most of our conversions are above 650bhp
Your statement above i'snt true. look at the link and No prices are given past
625 bhp,,,,Their are so many permitations its almost impossible to give exact
prices on the Big power builds;
However we are completing our Web site shortly..and early 2012 will give you Guys full prices From Fixed price servicing to full blown conversion's
clutches/suspension/brakes, infact all you will ever want for your GTR

water water everwhere....

Hi John,

Its been a long time since scooby days!

I am quite sure it was water that killed the GT-R i drove, if i remeber correctly he hit water on a bend, slid the n/s rear in to a ditch and flipped it over with some gusto...

I am not overley bothered about snow as the car will never see it!, However my playground is west / A9 up to Orkney a lot so perhaps i should dump the run flats? or just drive like miss daisy in the wet?

Anyway, with luck the M3 will depart when i get back onshore in a few weeks, then the fun starts!!

We will have to meet up and talk Datsuns!!

Cheers Robin.

Likewise mate, although I didn't have garage issues but I can take an educated guess at what one it was
