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.

As mentioned you can do 2.75" intake but gains are minimal

 

If you are concerned about warranty, keep your car stock and add cosmetic or exhaust mods

Also keep in mind that the stock GT-R tune can only handle so many "power" modifications before it doesn't matter anymore. My guess is the only real gains you can get with a stock tune is around 20-25 hp before the ECU starts freaking out and pulls timing. Like others have said, non catted midpipe and more free flowing engine air filters or even a 2.75 intake will most likely max out your stock tune. Everything after that will need to be weight reduction. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

I ran a 10.5 @ 130 on stock tune. My 2014 BE responded really well to simple mods. Did AAM 2.75 intakes wrapped in DEI heat tape with K&N air filters, MXP catless/unresonated midpipe, MXP race exhaust, FFT Venom 3 drag wheels, Nitto NT05R drag radials up front, Mickey Thompson ET Street drag radials in the rear, weight reduction in rear and trunk area, and 100 octane fuel via Torco. Consistent 10.6 @ 129 and best of 10.5 @ 130. Car pulls super strong with those simple mods :)

LOL, that's the only reason why you ran a 10.5 stock. Everything else might add up to .1s

Terroragon - You trippin. There is FBO cars (93 and E85) that run that time. Give credit where credit is due. SMH. With front seat removed I could have ran a 10.4 or even a 10.3. I got friends that barely run 10.3 on FBO E85. Without drag radials I'd still run a 10.8 which is still impressive since my first GTR was running 11.0.

Anyways MikeySed do what makes you happy and comfortable. A lot of dealerships are mod friendly so as long as you don't go crazy with bigger turbos etc you'll be fine and best bet would be to go FBO and a tune. I haven't made that jump yet on this GTR because I'm more than satisfied for now. My first GTR I kept getting 11.0 and couldn't get into the 10's so I said screw it and got a tune. LoL. Good luck!

Unless you are 76 years old and hate the Fast 'n Furious franchise, why get a resonated Midpipe? Why waste your money?  The Non resonated sounds perfect with no DRONE and is highly recommended.  Not too loud and how the car should of come stock.

I agree with tjlazer. Unless you plan on doing downpipes get unresonated midpipe.

1. Yea, there are FBO and E85 cars that run in the 10's, but that's not being discussed. The only way you're going to cut any significant time on a stock tune is with better tires. A catback, midpipe and 2.75" intakes aren't going to do anything for a stock tune other than make your car louder, and certainly not drop your time by half a second or more. 

 

2. smh? How are you able to interact with other people if you get angered so easily? 

 

For the record, I'm not doubting that you ran 10's on a stock tune. I'm saying that any time you were able to shave off had little to do with the exhaust/intakes and almost entirely a result of using drag radials.
