Unfortunately Admiral seem to be a bit inconsistent with their approval for mods on Nissan GT-Rs. I've been with them for years on a multi-car policy (3 cars) and they wouldn't insure me on a GT-R because it had been tuned and therefore they claimed they do not insure cars which have been "chipped"/with modified ECUs. Shame though, because they've always been competitive for me :(
Do they online. I've just tried a dummy quote. If I put chip/ECU of 11% to 25% they quote a price. If I put 25%+ then they won't quote.

When I declared the mods to them they said on the phone upto 25% was fine. So that seems to match with their online system.

Oddly, my dummy quote was £902 (like for like with my actual renewal). Without the mods it was £852.

Yeah, I tried doing a quote online but if you are running stage 4 or higher it puts you above the 25% rule and you have to call them. Its at this stage that Admiral were happy with the mechanical mods and upgraded parts but the specialist car underwriters part of Admiral were not happy with the tuning of the ECU. Sorry, should have made that clearer in original post. Ended up going with Pace Ward in the end.

Weird, my details look similar to yours except I'm significantly older and they wanted to fleece me for nearly £800. I went with LV for £350.

The renewal came through at £232 which I would have been happy with but phoned them to see if they could do any better & they knocked almost £42 off the GTR & £30 off our Ford Kuga.

I don't think I've paid less than £200 for any car that I've had in the last 30 Years. Well happy!!

Renewal was £660 for the GT-R which was dissapointing to say the least with a clean year under the belt. Needed a phone call to get it down a bit.

Got 2 cars and house insurance on the multi cover and haggled down to about the same price as last year. Will try someone else next year tbh.

I am having the exact same problems.

I want to do intakes and remap for my exhaust that's been declared but it's taken a month to confirm with the underwriters (Don't know why it's so hard). Did an online single car quote and that came back cheaper than what I pay now! Even though the quote I did has additional mods!

However, cosmetic mods mean the quote cannot be provided (wheels, spoiler, etc) yet i'm certain Admiral said to me that they are happy with any non-power generating mods.

Whole thing is a piss take.

Admiral took a day to confirm my exhaust and ECU changes. I asked them why it took any time at all since I could get a new quote online with the modifications instantly. They did not provide an answer.

They also did not know what to do when I said I'd had it wrapped. To me, all they needed to do was record the car's new colour. I mean, you inform the DVLA that the car is now a different colour and that's that. So they have recorded it as "exterior decorative changes". But then my policy document does not state the colour of the car in the first place.

I should add all my figures are exclusive of IPT as this has a habit of continually going up each year making year on year comparisons harder.
