The Best Bolt on Performance Upgrades for Late Model Porsches

IPD logo

The incredible 997.2 Porsche Turbo received a completely redesigned engine with many substantial upgrades. This latest Turbo is the most powerful, revolutionary and capable Porsche Turbo to ever come out of Stuttgart. The 997.2 Porsche Turbo may have been labeled a "facelift" but the engine is another major evolutionary leap forward in Porsche's coveted Turbo history. This 7th generation Turbo engine, titled the 9A1, delivers 500 HP (530 HP in "S" models) and once again, raises the performance bar in the sports car world.

The new 997.2 IPD Turbo Plenum was considerably more difficult to design and develop than previous Plenums. The good news is that all these efforts have yielded a much easier installation process than previous Turbo Plenums. The new IPD Turbo Plenum is offered in one single 74mm version which utilizes the factory 74mm throttle body. The 997.2 Turbo intake manifolds are smaller than the 997.1 Turbo manifolds which is great for improved boost response and gas mileage but less than ideal for making substantial power gains. The 74mm TB provides more than adequate flow for these more restrictive intake runners eliminating the need for a larger 82mm "Competition" version.

The already explosive power of the 997.2 Turbo can be further increased with the new 997.2 Turbo IPD Intake Plenum. The patented IPD Plenum design works exceptionally well with all forced induction applications and the 997.2 Turbo is no exception. Power and torque increases provided by the IPD plenum are impressive and stay well above all factory power curves from launch to redline. Maximum power increases take place in the midrange where it's most needed, most critical and most enjoyed.

The 997.2 Turbo plenums deliver smooth and linear power with considerably quicker boost response creating a longer and more desirable power band. The Turbo plenums deliver reliable performance for both street and motorsport applications enhancing the already visceral Porsche Turbo driving experience.

The 997.2 Turbo requires an "adaptation" period that can be fully realized with either a series of hard pulls on the dyno or a series of spirited driving sessions, which of course IPD recommends only be performed on a closed course circuit. Installation of all Turbo Plenums is highly recommended to be performed by qualified and trained Porsche technicians.

 

997.2 Turbo IPD Intake Plenum 74mm | Part #97274.2

This version of the 997.2 Turbo plenum utilizes the factory 74mm throttle body and delivers impressive performance gains throughout both horsepower and torque curves for both stock and modified Turbos.

 


 

997.2 Turbo IPD High Flow Y Pipe | Part #97501

The revolutionary 997.2 Turbo IPD "Y" Pipe was built for the more demanding Turbo performance customer. This is not a cast reproduction of the factory Y pipe but a complete re-design from scratch, developed to deliver even greater air flow for both stock AND highly modified Turbos.

The factory Y pipe becomes restrictive when adding substantial power gains. The IPD "Y" Pipe has larger inlets and an optimized diversion area allowing for even greater power gains. This superior and more efficient design flows 126 more cfm than the factory Y pipe delivering the additional power needed to raise the performance bar on any Turbo.

Bigger isn't always better, and the IPD "Y" Pipe is designed to deliver optimum flow without being too large causing a loss in boost response. These "Y" Pipes can also be special ordered in custom powder coated colors and ceramic coatings or polished to improve the aesthetic appeal of your Turbo engine.

The IPD 997.2 Turbo Y Pipe is designed to be a direct replacement of the factory OEM Y Pipe. There are no modifications or fabrication required for installing the IPD Y Pipe. This is an easy and straight forward R & R (remove and reinstall) bolt on upgrade.
