Did you do the downpipes? What exhaust? Most importantly how long have had S4?

No downpipes yet. 70mm miltek but have 90mm sitting in garage waiting to go on. Stage 4 about 5-6weeks!

Lol....downpipes give you a few more horses but you really need turbos for anything really noticeable. Am sort of in the same boat (my spec below) and think having now got the FMIC and 102mm its inevitable at some point that i will do the turbos but will probably build the engine at the same time for peace of mind.

My point was DP's slight over fueling map = big flames, ok personal thing, but 5 weeks after S4 it's all too easy to think " more power"

I would spend some time seriously driving it before you consider the next steps, I guarantee you'll be pleasantly surprised

Better brakes - or major investment.

Stage 4 + Downpipes + Overrun map = Perfect.

Downpipes are the next step I think. Then like you said the turbos, what do I gain out of putting a upgraded intercooler on? I love the stage 4 but it's addictive you want to do more! Lol

For a FMIC, you gain consistency and safety. Check out the SRD one, it's a superb piece of kit.

You need the intercooler if you are going to go for more than 650bhp really.....the OEM ones are only good to that power. Also a good investment to keep the temps way down even at stage 4 power levels.

+1.....really really nice product and temp drops are great with it.

Good point the brakes. After picking it up from stage 4 I was told discs were in need of replacement. Do I replace for standard or upgrade?

Go for some Alcon 380 or 400mm. Pad choice is subjective, Pagid RS29's are pretty good!

Definitely not standard......get some Alcons or AP's etc....way better than the chocolate stock items...some good pads too makes all the difference. Getting some good brakes is like getting another 100bhp....

Temper your addiction for now, OK easier said than done. But for the short term invest your money in training with some one like CAT D who know the GT-R intermitly. They teach you in your car. Perfect!

You'll unlock more freedom and driving pleasure from your S4 than adding more power never really knowing what you or the car were capable of at that stage of tune. After that go for it!

What model year is your car and which tuner mapped it?
If it's a CBA fit the uprated turbo inlet pipes (there's some in the for sale section) downpipes and do the brakes.

My09 and I used Kaizer motors which I found really helpful. Downpipes, intercooler and brakes. That is my plan for the coming months.

I've just become the proud new owner of a GTR!..you said something about CAT D TRAINING? Who are they and who do I need to speak to?

Cheers!
