Theres no such thing as "not too expensive" where a skyline is concerned mate! First mods i went for when i first started on mine was:
Air filter APEXI
oversized down pipe
nice HHS exhaust
Front mounted intercooler
With these mods you will get your turbo and engine breathing nicely!
then comes the even more expensive stuff!
uprated fuel pump
fuel pressure regulator
uprated coil packs
You can just go on spending forever, but it just keeps getting better and better!
Good luck with the new Skyline ownership mate.
and its true what they say... "once you have had a skyline, theres no goin back"
and i wouldn't do to much yet get used to the car befor you start messing with it
but this is what i would start with
Air filter APEXI
3" down pipe
nice after market exhaust
wouldn't bother with a front mounted intercooler just yet as you car will already be suffering from flat spots and over fueling from the mods i have already listed, you will need some sort of ECU (apexi power FC) or piggy back ECU (apexi SAFCII or NEO) to control the fueling and an hour on the rollers to set it up
so thats your first £1000 gone but should see you pushing around 300bhp:grinno:
one other thing that may need changing as you start modding is the coilpacks, a set of splitfires will set you back £280-£300 but they are woth it and make sure you buy the correct ones, there is spec 1 and spec 2
keep an eye on the for sale section as you can get some good priced performance parts when people up grade, this will help keep the cost down a bit
if you are interested i am removeing my turbo elbow and 3" HKS downpipe at the week end
sorry for this but how much for the elbow as im looking to take mine from standard and mod it a bit but thinking of starting with bigger discs and pads and sorting suspension out have one or two little bits on already
