So, I'm a newbie in here and a newbie to the tuner world. I've always had decentish cars, but never really done many modifications. My bike on the other hand, well that's not quite so standard, but bikes are so easy to customise.

Bought a new MY14 GTR just last month from Alex Noble in Edinburgh...

It came with the Milltek Y pipe, which does make it sound quite nice.

Anyway, I've just got myself booked in for a Litchfield stage 4 Performance Upgrade and Intercooler upgrade. This is just to get my feet wet, then as funds permit I'll slowly add to it and hopefully end up somewhere in the 800Bhp area.

I'm a bit of a carbon whore, my bikes dripping in the stuff, so I'm also booked in to see the guys a Knight Racer for some carbon goodies. For the interior I've got some RSW carbon and I'm tempted by JCR's carbon paddles, but still undecided on that one. I like the carbon look, but don't want to over do it.

It'll be a little while before I get some pictures up, I'm another offshore worker, it sucks being away but it pays for fancy toys like the GTR!

Cheers folk

Very, very nice.
You'll love Stage 4 with an FMIC, the car really comes alive and the EcuTek software is a revelation.

Look forward to your updates, mate.

We'll I've not had any issues or problems with them or work done to my car.

Cars performed faultless.

If you have issues with Litchfields I suggest you stick them somewhere else instead on someone's project thread

Fair comment,
I suppose you can only go by the experience !!
I'm an SVM supporter!! They Do what it says on the Tin (for me anyway)
As your being a little aggressive, looking at your spec!! What performance do you call that!! LOL

Not sure if you can go Right ether !!
Whats your issues with Litchfields then? Or is that just because you use SVM that they must be worse? I'm curious on your reasoning.

People, this is a project thread so let's not go down the 'tuner warz' bullshit route, we've seen and heard it all before. Opinion is fine as long as it's not tit for tat arguing for the sake of it.

Thanks.

I have nothing against Ian at Litchfield,But I have seen some of his conversions!
SVM are local to me, I see them daily, Their work is meticulous, at any one time they have more than 15 GTR35's for servicing & Big Engine builds,they push all bounderes

Stage 4 already on a newly purchased GTR I like the way you work! Will you also be taking out their warranty on the work since the Nissan one will be void once you start the engine work?

Regarding SVM/Litchfield etc, its your money spend it as you wish :)
