Most customers are satisfied with the stock performance of a Porsche Turbo, but as long as there are gear heads that think they know how to make more power than a team of Germany’s best engineers; highly modified 911s will continue to amaze us. One of the best things about the 997 Turbo is that the 3.6 Liter flat six cylinder engine has been one of Porsche’s specialties for over a decade so from the factory, the all wheel drive turbo’s 470 HP and 460 lb-ft of torque makes for a very manageable super car experience with a mid 3 second 0 to 60 MPH time and a top speed up around 200 MPH. The one problem with that theoretical top speed is that at around 150 MPH the air gets a little thicker and the more power you have the easier it is to get to the magic mile per hour.
Leading up to the top speed extravaganza known as the Texas Mile, the aftermarket specialists at VividRacing thought that an 800 HP blue blur would be their best bet to make their mark. The team has redesigned the car’s intake system relocating the air filters in the clean air stream next to the intercoolers, which now have a full three inch connecting the chillers to the intake manifold. The matte blue 911 Turbo also makes use of a pair of BOVs to leak the excessive amount of boost that it takes to make a maximum output of 800 HP from only 3.6 Liters.
Planning on reaching speeds in the realm of ridiculous, VividRacing decided to upgrade the Porsche’s rear brakes to match the front Brembo setup complete with racy two piece rotors. Stiffening the chassis and adding an extra element of safety for the driver, the crew at the high performance online retailer fitted an Agency Power Roll Bar. After all, the cars that will gather at the Texas mile in a few weeks are only going to spend a fraction of their time on the stretch of open highway at speed. So while they plan on making the Porsche look pretty in the paddock the specialists at VividRacing changed out the project car’s old HRE P43 wheels for a set of new HRE P40’s finished in flat black to match the exterior.
So we are trying to finalize some mods for the Texas Mile and continue our 800HP beast. We have removed our Agency Power Cold Air Intake and are redesigning our Ypipe to be 3 inch all the way from the intercoolers to the upgraded throttle body and plenum. Before our YPipe necked down which really was not condusive to flow. Since we are changing the Ypipe design, we will also need to relocate our intakes. Much like you have seen on other cars, we have opted to run short elbows and put our filters/MAF where the intercoolers are. To make sure we keep the cool air flowing through the duct work, we have notched the plastic housing to house the K&N filters as well.
I should have updated pictures and more info by the weeks end. Oh yeah, to drive people crazy, we wrapped the car FLAT BLUE!
