IN THE SHOP: 991 Turbo – Built to Breathe!


This 991.2 Turbo S was in need of more power and cooling capabilities for both street and track use with support for a turbo upgrade in the future. We’re happy to oblige and sourced top tier components to achieve a phenomenal final result.

It’s crucial to monitor and mind IAT, oil, and water temperatures. TiAL Intercoolers will go a long way in preventing heat soak during sustained abuse at high horsepower levels.  The 3D metal printed end caps are a nice touch!

Our Competition X-Pipe Exhaust System is the perfect fit for this track weapon. Back purged welds and durable components will make sure it lasts for many race weekends to come – backed for life on street and track by our Lifetime Warranty!

An Eventuri Carbon Fiber Intake kit allows for increased air flow. The carbon fiber quality is fantastic with no imperfections or cracks. An IPD plenum and Y-Pipe complete high flowing intake setup for more power.

IPD’s innovative Y-Pipe design is not only larger than factory but also utilizes “non-round” runners, an optimized merge collector area and our proven dimpled interior surfacing. This superior design delivers greater volume of air, improved laminar flow and increased air velocity.


With the hard parts installed a Softronic ECU Tune to optimize the car for all the modifications – with gains of over 100 horsepower and 100 ft-lbs of torque to be expected!  Softronic has been working with Porsche systems for nearly 30 years. From street cars to race cars, Softronic has involved itself in all types of motorsports to stay consistently involved in the industry. Having cutting edge technology not only makes the ECU tuning process more efficient, it also makes it more accurate. Softronic has been the technical advisor for the Porsche Club of America (PCA) for over 10 years as well. One of the main functions that Softronic serves is data checking of Porsche Motorsports vehicles for race teams having exclusively tuned the Porsche Interseries cars, winning Daytona car, World Challenge, Koni Cup and countless others in racing!

The end result yielded a very, VERY fast Turbo with a total night and day different in drivability and sound. Throttle response is much more immediate and the turbos spool much quicker. Presence in the cabin has been increased be a refined amount with more turbo sound and it’s nice to actually hear the exhaust note. We look forward to upgrading the turbos in the near future.
