The highly anticipated IPD DFI Plenum is set to be available this August, as in 2010. Porsche has thrown after market tuners a mean curve ball with it’s latest DFI (Direct Fuel Injection) equipped cars. Producing additional power over the factory power curves has proved challenging if not impossible with standard and conventional bolt-on performance parts. IPD has experienced similar hurdles developing the new DFI Plenum for the 2009 Carreras, Caymans and Boxsters.
The long over due release of the IPD DFI Plenum is the result of an extended and continual tuning process that includes both major and minor design revisions. Multiple internal diversion variations were tested, tuned and tested again all in an effort to achieve optimum volumetric efficiencies and power gains. Early version DFI Plenums delivered promising power gains but we knew there was additional unrealized power.
In typically IPD fashion, a hand full of varying versions were installed on local test mules (Carrera S 3.8L, Carrera 3.6L and Cayman S) to be real world tested with daily street driving and track pounding. There has been a unanimous consensus of “thumbs up” approvals with all of our DFI Plenum testers. The IPD Plenum was claimed to “dramatically” improve performance and enhancing the DFI driving experience with each of the DFI Porsche models tested.
