Again Felicity Farseer is your friend, unlock is just a meta alloy that you can buy from Maia in Pleaides.Sag A sounds like a winner! Guess I'll want to modify my ship to max the jump distance.
Unlock requirements are:
Gain exploration rank Scout or higher.
Provide 1 unit of Meta Alloys.
If you haven't used her before, once unlocked log out and back in again to get the game to recognise your achievement.
FSD Increased Range, most of the mats are data mats, which you can get from just scanning ships (target select and point nose of ship at target) Higher ones can be obtained witha wake scanner outsode ofa star port or at a Nav Beacon, just scan the wakes when NPC's jump out.
If its your first time with her the number of attempts per level might be high 9+ to unlock next level, so you could need alot of mats to get FSD grade 5. Look at the Deep Charge experimental affect, as this increases range for smaller ships, larger ones go for Mass Manager.
If you can get a ship to give you 45+Ly range then you will have no issues about having to jump through systems that are unscoopable. Rememeber its not about how quickly you get there, but how many stars (or more importantly planets) you scan on the way.
The following although done back for 2.3 is a great guide as to what pays out the money...
Note just honking pays out a pitance.
Its the High Metal Content and water worlds that if they are terraformable really give you a Brucie Bonus! But scanning 5 HMC's with the DSS should give you about 150K and you get another Brucie Bonus if its the first time its been discovered.
And remember DONT DIE! You fly too close to the star and damage yiourself and then later on die all that exploration data is lost! So be very very careful!
