The innovative 996, 997.1 and 997.2 Turbo IPD Y-Pipes were designed and engineered for Turbo driving enthusiasts who desire improved performance for both stock AND highly modified Turbos without sacrificing reliability. The IPD Turbo Y-Pipes are not a cast reproduction of the factory Y-Pipe but a complete re-design from scratch, that are specifically designed to delivers performance by increasing air flow and reducing air turbulence as it enters the throttle body, making it an intelligent performance upgrade for any Turbo Porsche.
IPD offers 2 different version Turbo Y-Pipes which are very different from each other. The standard 997.1 and 997.2 Turbo Y-Pipes are designed to be a direct "bolt-on" component. The 996 Turbo Y-Pipes are a "Push Through" MAF-less Y-Pipe which requires a MAF-less ECU tune. This set up also requires some extensive custom fabrication since the factory air box is eliminated and the air filters are relocated inside the rear fender wells. Similar custom fabricated tubes are require to connect the intercooler to the Y-Pipe itself. This set up is capable of handling turbo engines producing well over 1000 HP at the wheels.
The IPD Y-Pipes deliver great performance and make for an amazing aesthetic upgrade in your engine compartment. The standard IPD Turbo Y-Pipes come standard with a cast textured finish similar to our Plenums and the factory Turbo Y-Pipe.
Turbo customers looking for the ultimate engine dress up component don't just receive a powder coated version of the IPD Y-Pipe. We take the standard IPD Y-Pipe with textured finish, then have the entire pipe ground and polished to a mirrored finished and then powder coat the pipe to the customer's color specification. We offer virtually any and every color in the spectrum but the trend is definitely to color match calipers, seat belts, roll cages and interior stitching colors. We also offer ceramic dispersement coating applications which help dissipate heat and improve performance for customers looking for every ounce of power possible.
We do our best to keep Polished Y-Pipes in stock at all times so when customers place orders and choose their color preference, turn around time is only 4-5 business days. The additional charge for the polished Y-Pipe is $150 while the Polished AND Powder Coated Y-Pipes run an additional $300.
The factory Y-Pipes are more restrictive and become a weak link in the engine performance chain when factory power and torque limits are pushed, making the IPD Y-Pipe a required performance upgrade. The IPD Y-Pipe has larger inlets and an optimized diversion area allowing for even greater power gains.
As with any other performance mod (especially for turbo applications), bigger isn't always better, especially for street applications. The IPD Y-Pipe has been optimized to deliver solid performance gains without being so large causing a drop in pressure inside the intake tract. Just like the Plenums (but in reverse), the Y-Pipe channels the air flow more effectively. Although the larger runners help contribute to the performance gains, the bulk of the performance improvements come from the exaggerated merge collector area that directs the inlet air traveling from the left and right intercoolers to run more parallel as airflow meets and enters the throttle body.

Porsche Motorsport North America, Inc. announced it has purchased the famous Southern California Porsche ANDIAL brand for future use. Although its last active owner Dieter Inzenhofer will retire later this month, the legendary ANDIAL name is set to stay in the Porsche family as part of Porsche Motorsports North America.
ANDIAL is an acronym made from the names of the founding members – the late Arnold Wagner AN; Dieter Inzenhofer DI; and former PMNA president and current consultant Alwin Springer AL. Inzenhofer and Wagner met Springer at Vasek Polak's Porsche dealership in Manhattan Beach, California in the late 1960s. From the company's formation in 1975, it evolved into one of America's most successful and respected independent authorities on Porsche performance tuning both on and off the track.
ANDIAL wasn't just directly involved with Porsche's North American racing, it was directly responsible for it's success. ANDIAL was a force to be reckoned with from the early 70's through the 80's. They were involved with virtually every racing Porsche model during this golden era of sports car racing, from 911's to the legendary 962 in IMSA competition. When Porsche's own factory teams went head to head with the likes of expats, the factory was often on the losing end. This competition on the track formed an intensely strong and mutually respectful relationship between the two companies. In the late 80s, when Porsche wanted a factory motorsport presence in North America they moved to Santa Ana and shared a parking lot with ANDIAL until PMNA expanded into the entire complex in 2006.
Following these years, with a reduced staff and building size, Dieter and Arnold, along with a core group of the original members, maintained a presence for their truly loyal customers. Legendary doesn't quite begin to describe ANDIAL. Porsche's decision to purchase the brand is really a tribute to the ANDIAL name and it's significance with Porsche racing in North America. Their DNA can be found in numerous places in the Porsche history books.
"We have always considered ANDIAL a member of the Porsche family, and now we are pleased to have the name become an official part of Porsche Motorsport. Arnold, Dieter and Alwin played a key role in growing the prominence of Porsche racing in North America, and their reputation was well-known among both racers and Porsche street car owners well beyond North America," said Jens Walther, president of Porsche Motorsports North America, Inc.
Details on how the company will use the ANDIAL name have yet to be released."My whole career and professional reputation has been built on ANDIAL's success with Porsche performance and tuning, and I couldn't ask for a better outcome of my decision to retire than have Porsche Motorsport buy our name," said Inzenhofer.
Some of ANDIAL's major Porsche endurance sports car racing accomplishments were the 24 Hours of Daytona. ANDIAL-prepared Porsches in the winner's circle from 1983-'87 and again in 1989. In the 1987 race, the first-through fifth-place finishers were all ANDIAL-powered cars.
Winning the IMSA Supercar Series championship in 1992.
IMSA-GT Championships in 1983, 1985, 1986 and 1987; North American GT-1 Endurance Cup Championship in 1994 and GTS-2 in 1996.
Winning the SCCA World Challenge championship in 1994.
Class wins at Pikes Peak in 1994, 1996, 1997 and 1998.
The impressive list of drivers that campaigned ANDIAL-powered Porsches include Al Holbert, Mario and Michael Andretti, Al Unser Sr. and Jr., A.J. Foyt, Derek Bell, Rolf Stommelen, Johnny Rutherford, Danny Ongais, The Whittington brothers, Bob Wollek, Harald Grohs, Hurley Haywood, Hans-Joachim Stuck, Jim Busby, Pete Halsmer and Jeff Zwart.
Along with ANDIAL's racing ventures, the company developed street-tuned performance applications. In 2004, with their ex-partner Springer officially retired from PMNA, Inzenhofer and Wagner reduced their workload butdid not retire entirely. Instead, they moved from Santa Ana, California to a smaller location in nearby Fountain Valley and gave up the daily Porsche service business, focusing on their specialties, including engine projects, maintaining prior special engines and restoring race or other significant cars, and they continued to supply parts that customers have come to rely on during the preceding three decades.
