My GTR should be arriving soon and it's standard (nothing has been upgraded). I was wondering what is involved in Stage 1 tuning and how much power will it give me?

Stage 1 is typically. boost increase - to 1 bar, remapped ecu, to cope with the extra fuelling demands.oil cooler, Exhaust-usually right through and an induction kit. Optional extras are iridium spark plugs, hard interccoler pipes, boost controller, if you are lucky they may have done the intercooler.

Usually you'll see 350-420 bhp depending on if the IC has been done.

It may be worth getting it on a dyno just to check there are no hiodden surprises waiting for you.

enjoy.

Thanks Steve.
I'll have a chat with Mark @ Abbey about the dyno.

How much do you think the Stage 1 will cost?

Fuelling
ECU 700 - 1200 (ecu or Apexi power FC)

Breathing

Induction kit = 300
Intercooler pipes= 500------optional
Intercooler= 400-2000-----optional
Boost controller= 400-------optional

Exhaust

front pipes = 285 ish
DE cat pipe = 50
cat back(tailpipe) = up tp 600.

Spark plugs

About 15 each

So without an intercooler or hard pipes you should be looking at about 2-3k

You could scource some of these parts second hand to save some cash.If you do the intercooler then it would be a good idea to get the boost controller as well.
You'll have to add VAT as well !! and fitting.
I may be wrong on these prices as I am not in the trade. they should give you a good idea though.
hope this helps.
