Ok so i have my R34 GTT de-cated and an HKS Superpowerflow induction kit on at the minute,with a great sounding Blitz dump valve.
My next step is to get an HKS Silent Power cat-back system,some form of stainless downpipe,then fit my boost controller.
Your basic stage 1 mods etc.
I've seen an HKS airflow/fuel ratio regulator gadget that is also available,priced at £93 or so + delivery.
The question now is as follows folks.

Is it more beneficial to pay say RSP to custom remap my car to the basic stage 1 mods to run more efficiently,
OR,buy and fit the HKS airflow/fuel ratio regulator which is is much cheaper,
and will it do a good job i.e make my car run well and not too rich or too lean please,as this device has many settings on it?

In my previous posts i've stated i'm the first to admit that i'm not overly mechanically minded,
so please feel free to offer me the great advice that i know you good folks always do on here.

Any/all input is greatfully accepted.
Many thanks for your time folks,
Cheers and thanks from Neil.

some things are best left to the pros,as you say "many settings",so many ways to go wrong,get to rsp,then after payment all you need to worry about is...high or low boost on your contoler,simplez.

Thanks guys.
It was never a case of taking the cheaper option. NOOOOOO!!!!
Just,because i'm starting out on my mods,
I would always ask to be pointed in the right direction.
I bought my car 100% production line standard,
and i'm not the sort of bloke who does not research or make changes blindly.
You all started out somewhere and thats why i value your input,
because you have made your changes and can offer the sound advice.

So you are saying that when i get my full exhaust and downpipe system,
have it fitted then have boost controller fitted,
then make a roadtrip to maybe RSP and let them work their magic please?

Or advise on order of correct way to do the above.
I'll have over a grand to work with when my cash does come through.

Many thanks from Neil.

I was impressed at your R34's performance like Mark.
I've no plans for a front mounted intercooler though,it's power that i just wont use.
I'd be settling for 320ish which is quite ample for me.
It's a keen step up from 280 standard so i will get it done properly.
What was the cost purely for your RSP ECU please Mark?

Thanks again for the input fellas.

i didnt buy it, it came with the car but sure the GTT Ones are around £350 or near enough, front mount isnt just for power you know, lets the car breathe better and run cooler, being able to run more power is a by product

Is this a subtle hint to try n tempt me into fmic like Mark?
I'm gonna put at least another grand or so into her with 'zaust downpipe and re-map.

Anyway,when are you gonna fix my cat studs mate!!!? lol

standard intercooler is good for about the 300 note, but the fmic will get the power from a lower boost, ie, 1 bar on stock will get the same power as 0.8/0.9 on a fmic due to the density of the cooler air.

also as above if you get the A/F controller itll need setting up anyways so itll be less hassle to get the car mapped properly. also as good as the RSP plug and play ecu might be (i only say might as i have never experienced one) id still recommend taking the car to them and getting it set up in house as every car reacts to mods slightly differently, so a custom map is always better for perfomance

I would be doing this Mick.
As you say mate,it is then mapped to the specific set up of the mods added.
It would be a long trek to RSP for me,but would be worth it simply because
I've heard nothing but praise for their work and efforts by people on here.
