German tuning guru Mcchip-DKR has applied their stage two power upgrade kit to a Porsche 997 Turbo with astounding results. The car arrived at their headquarters packing a standard 480 PS and 620 Nm of torque, and it left with 569 PS and 800 Nm.
Being a stage two program, this kit only include a modest software upgrade and sport exhaust system. The software is Mcchip’s own and it helps the flat-six turbocharged engine in this Porsche 997 Turbo to make better use of the custom exhaust system which comes from Cargraphic. If you want something meatier in terms of power, you need to order a higher stage upgrade with modified turbochargers and air intake system.
This program reminds us how sweet the Porsche 997 Turbo still is. This car is basically two models out of date now, what with the new 991.2 Turbo Facelift model now available. But if you don’t care about having the latest version, there is still plenty of life left in the 997 generation 911. Plenty life and plenty of fun to be had, especially now that the launch of newer models has reduced the price of these older examples.
