Broke my gtr cherry yesterday, flew over over to Birmingham, collected the car and drove it back to sunny Belfast last night. All went well and was surprised how well the car eats up and soaks up the miles. My mk2 modified focus was less forgiving on the backside.
My issue and help needed is this... Today I've been driving round town getting used to gear shifting manually. In 2nd or 3rd gear for example if I was to hold a constant 2k revs say, the car starts to buck a bit. She does not like it. Now coming from the Ford scene and the continuous problems with the St's and Rs's I'm getting paranoid.
The car is a Litchfield 4.25, forged, litchfield 102mm non quiet exhaust system, litchfield handling kit, ap brakes among other stuff.
I didn't notice this on test drive as we used auto, used auto on drive home but after leaving the dealer yesterday and needing fuel I picked the only BP with no ultimate pumps sp fired 95ron in. The car was in map 1 all the time but I'm wondering if its the shitty fuel (I've now filled up with 97) best we have in n.i or plugs, maf or something costly or is it a trait?
Thoughts or experiences would be appreciated.

Simplest and most sensible thing to do is grab yourself the ecutek cable or Bluetooth single, log the car doing this and send it over to Dan at Litchfields for advice

Bought it off Blakedown cars in wombourne. I'm in no way faulting them guys or anything like that, just curious if these cars don't like being held in 2nd at low speeds for example

Never used it on mine so I cant advise

Does it only behave like that on RON95?

Ps. Welcome to the club! Love My GT-R to bits!
Thank you, did it once or twice yesterday on 97 map. That's the highest Ron we have here, getting some injector cleaner later to see if that does anything. It's not noticeable in auto as it it doesn't stay in low gears for long enough

Alrite. Sounds like a potential fine tune issue then. I would not be overly concerned, but it's always nice to have it looked over by a pro. If you have Ecutek and the Ecutek bluetooth dongle use the Ecu connect app to create a log and send to Litchfield as suggested.

Just back from speaking to someone. He thinks it may be the clutch needs a re learn. Biting point etc.
I'll def be lookin to the dongle, tidying a few things up first, centre console got wrapped yesterday, took the aged look of it
