    Porsche 991.2 3.0 Carrera, Carrera S, Carrera GTS, and Carrera T aftermarket header/manifold data is a bit lacking and what we have is a bit messy. A recent Kline ceramic coated header test on a Cobb tuned Porsche 991.2 GTS raised some eyebrows. First of all, so far the most comprehensive data available is from MotoIQ's test of Vektor's 991.2 headers. As already stated, that MotoIQ piece read like a sales pitch. Do we consider it independent? No. That does not mean we discount it though. ByDesign is claiming a 30+ whp gain with Kline's ceramic coated headers on top of a Cobb OTS software tune: First of all and to be noted, ByDesign sells Kline's product. They tout (push) it on the forums and on social media. That's fine. Kline's product is great which BoostAddict.com can attest to as we have a set of the headers and confirm very nice build quality. BoostAddict does not sell Kline headers though and the way ByDesign presented this data as independent is flawed. First of all, where is the Mustang dyno data showing all the figures? Where are the min, max, and average data points? MotoIq showed those figures for Vektor's headers and then some: The graph from The Shop in CT is incomplete: What exactly are we supposed to gather from that? Ok, at least a graph with numbers for the vertical axis so we can get a better idea of what is going on: Clearly you see the horsepower curve is right at 455 to the wheels. Why is it the owner posted 461 but without a baseline? You clearly see a 461 peak there but no baseline figures. He then posted a graph that that looks like it might be touching 461 but again with baseline curve to compare against which makes it useless except for stating his peak output now: What do we learn from this? Not much. It's amateur hour testing and practically worthless. Comparing two sets of headers on different cars with different tunes is an exercise in futility anyway but the way the Kline data was presented by @PTS-BRG and By Design quite simply, sucks. Fortunately BoostAddict member @spdracerut took it upon himself to do a little comparison work: The power gain % graph is interesting. However, not in the way you might think. The Cobb Tune appears to be pulling timing which results in a dip past 6200 rpm. Why? The ECU may be protecting things and the OTS tune is not aggressive or dialed in for the setup as a custom dyno tune would be. Regardless, essentially, what we learn is someone who sells Kline headers and someone who got Kline headers (at a discount) are claiming peak gains that are not substantiated by the data presented. Either show us all the runs, provide the runfiles, or don't bother. As you can see this is a bit of a mess and BoostAddict.com will be doing testing of the three main header options for the 991.2 3.0 platform on the same PorscheBoost 991.2 project car and on the same dyno. BoostAddict tentatively came to terms with Vektor who offered a ceramic coated set to test at a slight discount although this is still a large out of pocket expense. That does mean all three designs from Kline, Fabspeed, and Vektor will be in our possession for the comparison however. Oh, and one last thing which is important to note. The 461 Mustang figure with ceramic coated Kliine headers and a full exhaust with the Cobb OTS Stage 1 tune is 79 rear wheel horsepower short of the PorscheBoost Project 991.2 with Gintani tuning on the factory headers. In case you wanted to get an idea of how much stronger the BoostAddict Tial Sport turbocharger offering is than the X51/GTS turbos tuned by Cobb.

    You likely know of Swedish supercar building Koenigsegg. The Agera RS is one of their creations and it is simply a brutally fast car. With 1160 horsepower on pump gas and a dry weight of 3075 pounds you get the idea that this thing moves like little else. Only 25 were made. Specifications below.

    Remember last month when a MKIII Audi TT-RS with this same Unitronic ECU and TCU software package ran 10.1 @ 133.31? Well, it's just shy of propelling the 2.5 TFSI into the 9's on the factory turbo as this Audi RS3 sedan shows. In addition to Unitronic's beta Stage 2 software for the ECU and Stage 2 TCU software the car is on E70 ethanol. Weight is pulled to get the sedan down to roughly 3275 pounds. It is incredibly consistent with multiple 10.0X passes: It also was just shy of hitting 137 miles per hour of trap speed. What does this dragstrip performance translate into 60-130? 6.56 seconds: And yes, the launch is indeed incredible with 60 coming up in only 2.44 seconds: We'll likely see a 9 out of this RS3 sedan on the factory turbo soon enough.

    We all know the naturally aspirated Porsche flat-6 is reaching its last days. That does not mean it does not have more to offer. Dundon Motorsports built an impressive 4.2 liter 997.1 GT3 flat-6 which shows an impressive 462.9 wheel horsepower. They correct this to roughly 550 horsepower at the crank but what matters here is there is still room to gain in the flat-6. The motor is tuned on a Motec M1 and they are considering revisions to take it up past 500 rwhp. Notice the horsepower peak comes in at 7632 rpm: You might be saying to yourself, hold on, didnt Dundon Motorsports get 476.8 wheel horsepower out of a 991.2 GT3 4.0 with their headers? You would be correct. They made more power with the 991.2 GT3 4.0. They made less torque however as the 997.1 4.2 provides 341.56 lb-ft at 5162 rpm. The 991.2 GT3 4.0 with their headers managed 317.56 lb-ft at 4474 rpm whereas the stock 991.2 4.0 provided 271.41 lb-ft at 4428 rpm. The 4.2 is revving to a 8250 rpm redline and that really tells the story as its horsepower peak comes at 7632 rpm. The reason the 991.2 4.0 makes more power is is revving out further hitting its horsepower peak at 8377 rpm. Therein lies the give and take between torque down low and horsepower up top. With the 992 GT3 Porsche should be able to gain power by revving out further while also potentially going up to 4.2 liters for more torque. This means 550+ horsepower from the factory naturally aspirated flat-6 is well within reach if not more.

    An F80 M3 beating a C7 Z06 is not news. Turbo upgraded examples have humiliated the C7 Z06 in the past. Additionally, the stock C7 Z06 is not exactly the barometer it once with with the ZR1 now on the market along with many other fast factory stock cars. This F80 M3 is said to have bolt ons although we do not know what bolt ons, what tune, or what fuel. The Z06 is stock beyond the wheels and tires. The first race has the Z06 start in 3rd gear at 60 miles per hour. Not ideal but the race is even with the Z06 edging. The second race has the Z06 owner repeat his starting speed in the same gear. Why not start in second gear? Why not change the starting speed? The F80 M3 runs away. The Z06 owner wonders why. Well, there are a few explanations. 1. Heat soak from the baby blower. The TVS1740 is great for torque down low but is spun hard and generates a lot of heat. 2. Weak top end. The Z06 suffers at higher speeds precisely because torque falls off from the TVS1740. The ZR1 LT5 addresses this with a much larger TVS2650 unit. 3. Better start and better gear choice from the F80 M3. The truth is likely a combination of these factors.

    This is certainly impressive as it is the first 7-second C7 Corvette pass and many more will come. LMR (Late Model Racecraft) is the first tuner to pull it off but they relied on quite a bit of nitrous to do it. That is not a bad thing as it certainly looks like they could do it without the juice as well. 7.55 @ 184.09 is insane: Now, what is the full mod list? Obviously we know it is on a 15 inch drag rubber setup with nitrous, a built motor, built trans, and running a Procharger blower. Yes, this is a full weight street car with A/C. The full spec list is not provided as it seems there is some back and forth competition going on in the C7 world. That is fine but hopefully we find out the magic recipe soon.
