    As you likely know, is currently testing this upgrade out on the PorscheBoost Project 991.2 car. The turbos are being installed and tuned and this software testing will be an integral part of the turbo upgrade package will offer for the 991.2 Carrera, T, S, and GTS. The upgrade utilizes the factory housings. This is commonly referred to as a hybrid upgrade. Here are factory turbo specs: 9A2 3.0 991.2 Carrera Horsepower: 370 Torque: 332 lb-ft Boost Pressure: 13.1 psi Turbos: 49mm compressor/45mm turbine 9A2 3.0 991.2 Carrera S Horsepower: 420 Torque: 369 lb-ft Boost Pressure: 16.0 psi Turbos: 51mm compressor/45mm turbine 9A2 3.0 991.2 Carrera GTS Horsepower: 450 Torque: 405 lb-ft Boost Pressure: 18.0 psi Turbos: 55mm compressor/48mm turbine The Stage 1 upgrade goes to a 61mm compressor wheel and 50.5mm turbine. We will of course not reveal the wheel designs. Here is what you can expect: Turbochargers: New OEM CHRA. ( Bearings, shaft, thrust washers ) Larger turbine wheel 50.5mm Larger 61mm Compressor wheel Core OEM units (starting life from OEM 991.2 C2/4, C2S/4S, or GTS2/4 turbos) are then: - Disassembled and Inspected - Hot Ultrasonic Immersion Cleaned. Di Water rinse. - Shot peened to restore finish to new or better appearance to Compressor and Turbine housings. - 5 Axis turned / Machined. - Reassembled and clocked for installation. What kind of power can you expect? Well, we will know when tuning wraps up. What about the price? It depends on how involved the software is among other factors but expect something competitive with the factory X51 upgrade except offering much more bang for the buck. As this upgrade requires the factory turbochargers a core exchange is required. Due to the limited number of cores in circulation those who get in line first will get their turbos first. The turnaround time is only 24 hours but that is only for cores in stock. Feel free to PM or e-mail to put a deposit down.

    A 909 horsepower 5300+ pound SUV with a 5.5 liter twin turbo V8? Yeah, that is the kind of thing BenzBoost is into. McChip-DKR in Germany decided to build what they call an MC900 GLE63 AMG Coupe. What was done to hit that 900+ horsepower figure? This: Performance upgrade mcchip-dkr Stage 5 (MC900) 909 hp / 1096 Nm mcchip-dkr software V-Max removal Transmission software upgrade mcpipes exhaust manifold and exhaust system with sport catalysts Upgrade turbocharger High-performance H-shaft con rods incl. bearing shells High-performance main bearing shells High-performance pistons Custom tuning, upgraded turbos, and forged pistons/rods for the M157. They say only the transmission tuning software is changed which is surprising considering one would expect 808+ lb-ft of torque to require some hardware upgrades in the transmission. There is a crank dynograph in the video below but no acceleration data is provided in the video or anything showing what it can really do. One would think this is an easy 10-second GLE63. Badass, no doubt.

    How about Germany pays Poland back for WWII before trying to destroy it again?

    Another day, another N54 single turbo kit, eh? Vi Engineered based out of Denver, Colorado has a new entry in the N54 single turbo top mount game. Based on some of their past work they clearly have talent developing turbo kits and manifolds. So what do they bring to the table? This: Your $4850 gets you the following: Garrett 3884GTW turbo Water fittings, oil fittings, lines, flanges 2 Tial 38mm Wastegates Manifold Dump tubes Downpipe that connects to stock exhaust Water pipe to water pump Relocation brackets for expansion tank Air filter Thermal wrap Turbo blanket What kind of numbers does the kit produce? BimmerBoost is not sure. They do not provide any graphs although obviously output can range wildly depending on boost, tuning, fuel, supporting mods, etc. Yet another option worth considering.

    The Camaro currently does offer a 6-speed manual but according to a leaked CARB (California Air Resources Board) document a 7-speed manual transmission will be joining it for the 2019 model year. This makes perfect sense considering the Corvette has a 7-speed manual and shares motors with the Camaro. The question is, which Camaro models will get the 7-speed? It seems nobody knows that answer but GM at this time. Very cool to see GM and Chevrolet gives the manual transmission plenty of love in this day and age.

    GIAC has tuning software available for the 991.2 generation 911 Turbo models although they only shared results of a base Turbo and not the S with updated turbochargers. They also managed to figure out how to share a dynograph with the product release this time, imagine that. So what are the numbers? The baseline is roughly ~500 awhp and 505-516 lb-ft of torque at all four wheels. Great to have some Dynojet numbers to go by: The tune picks up roughly ~55 awhp and torque rises by ~40 lb-ft or so depending on which baseline you go by. Solid gains through the curve once the turbos spool and they hold through redline. To get an idea how a tuned 991.2 Turbo S on a Mustang dynamometer compares to the 991.2 Turbo on a Dynojet, check out yesterday's article.
