Injectors and remap at Litchfield Imports

My car has been running pretty well of late, and I’ve not felt the need to change it. However, I was speaking with Iain Litchfield, of Litchfield Imports fame, about their new state-of-the-art Maha Dyno and the gains they’ve found in their Stage maps. My car is at Stage 4.25, and some are reporting gains […]

The Audio Upgrade, Pt. 3

With my car being a non-Bose GTR, I wanted a similar speaker configuration to the Bose equipped models. The non-Bose cars come without rear speakers – not even the rear grills, and no centre speaker in the dash. I’ve asked Andy at R35 Audio to install some nice coaxial 4″ Hertz speakers in the rear […]

Some carbon touches

Just added a few more lovely carbon products, courtesy of Andy @ R35Audio.com I think it looks great! Great work again, Andy.

EuroTrip 2014

Since I’ve owned a fast car, not just the GT-R, I’ve always wanted to take it down the Autobahn and into the Swiss Alps. Luckily, an opportunity came up for me to go. Ana was going to Paris with her mother and sister and I had no plans for 5 days. Perfect. I phoned my […]

Vents and Lifters

Very small update, whilst I still go through editing the video of the Alpine trip… I’ve got some new carbon fibre dipped bonnet vents and new hydraulic bonnet lifters from Andy at R35Audio.com, they’re quality items and give the GTR that little bit more that you’d expect. Still can’t for the life of me understand […]

The Audio Upgrade, DAB Install

The only thing letting my GT-R down was the lack of DAB digital radio, which I guess is a UK free-to-air equivalent of Sirius, albeit not as good. Anyways, there’s no official Nissan upgrade path for this, nor is there anything on the horizon. So, looking to the aftermarket, most of the solutions involve an […]

The Audio Upgrade, Pt. 2

Well, a small update on the Litchfield Suspension, I’ve also now had the audio completely overhauled, thanks to Andy at R35Audio.com Just a few pics of the updates. I have a non-Bose car, so it’s not the usual Bose-upgrade path. Upgrade for me was: New Hertz HSK 165XL High Power 2 Way Front Speakers. Install […]

Gearbox Fix & Litchfield Suspension

No real updates to speak of until now. My gearbox had a P284A code thrown, which was a gear-selector fork problem – luckily, all covered under the Litchfield Care Plan. Whilst the car was down there, I treated it to the Litchfield Suspension set-up and rear ARB. On the general road and cruising up the […]

Summer 2014 Plans

Well it’s been a while since I’ve posted anything, and really that is just a testament to the car. All of my previous “project cars” have been continually fettled or altered in some way, but not the GTR, and I think that’s just because it’s absolutely perfect for me as it is, and I’m still […]

Finally, a Dyno Run

A few days ago, I got the car on the Dyno, at Riverside Racing in Liverpool, near where I live. I’d not had it on since I went to Stage 4 minus the downpipes at Surrey Rolling Road in October 2012. It made 600bhp/600lbft then. So..   And the boost control vs RPM   The […]
