Hello all, as the title says picking up a 2016 GTR with low miles. Plan to likely add an sbd monster resonated midpipe as its one of the quieter no drone ones. Any other mods I can do that won't void warranty and are easy to take off?

Thanks.

Cobb makes them and probably others too. No tune required. Not sure on hp bump but the turbo spool sound definitely worth it.

Forget cat back and intakes.............. Very low gains for lots of money.

Weight reduction  is next if you want to go faster.

Any 2.75" intake will not require tuning. You will pick very, very minimal power. Enough thats not even noticeable. It will sound better being able to hear the spooling of the turbos though. 

 

Id personally wait until you're ready to make the leap and start out with 3" intakes, midpipe, and a tune. 

 

Let me know if you have any questions.

The midpipe definitely changed the feel of my car and it greatly improved the sound.

I looked into other options like you and, since the car will be sold before it's 3 years old I didn't want to drop major coin or void the warranty.  The intakes didn't seem worth it without any performance gains and the catback will get you nothing as it's not a restriction.  

 

If the intake sound will make you smile go for it but if you're going for performance make the decision now if you're going to take the leap so you don't blow a lot of money with little ROI.

Agree with everyone's comments above. Along with a midpipe I would consider lighter wheels and tires, (Advan GT, Volk TE37, MPSS), and possibly carbon ceramic brakes. I reduced around 90 lbs of rotating mass... Which makes the GTR feel more responsive and agile. But now traction is an issue. I have a review on the WGP carbon ceramic brake kit in the brake subforum.
