Ok, just got my GTR back from its most recent visit to Litchfields.

Went in for a service and to have a headlight sorted. That was mid March and it was one of those things where I said... hmmm, why dont we add that while its there etc etc

In the end, it's had:-

Alcon CCX Ceramic brakes
New Upper and Lower steering/suspension arms
Rear dynamat
JM Carbon door handles internal
Leather rear quarters and Recaro trimmed leather back seats to match front
Alcantara steering wheel
4 point Sabelt harness
Downpipes
V4 Ecutek
Dump valves
Akrapovic full system with carbon tail pipe

Firstly - the handling. WHAT A DIFFERENCE. It's back on R888s and with the changes to the front, it is so nimble yet so sure footed.

Noise - SO much nicer and much quieter too than the y-pipe on stock exhaust I had before. Sounds epic

Interior - WHAT A TRANSFORMATION! That's really how the car should come. I'll take pics when I get a chance at is fab. Not tried the harness but the fitment is ingenious.

V4 Ecutek - just felt so smooth, powerful, no lag - epic.

My only complaint.... IT FELT SLOW.

Seriously! It feels so competent it feels that it could take another 150 hp easily. Brakes are not really bedded in yet, so pretty much not stopping the car!

Will get some pics! EPIC!

Sounds great mate.

I can imagine it would feel very different and more sure footed.

I mind when I upgraded to V4 I thought the car felt slow, then I realised it was set at low boost on the 9t map. Different story once I set it to full boost on the 99

4.25 (Stage 4 + downpipes)

Headlight was full of water (usual issue - had 3 replacements now!)

Felt weirdly more RWD (alot less understeer)

Anything is an improvement on the shocking winter tyres it was on before!!

Brakes take some bedding in, you need to get them hot! Very hot, find some space and really work them hard, then cool them but not too quickly, then prepare yourself for regular face plants on the windscreen, its almost as addictive as the throttle!
