The incredible 997 Porsche Turbo is the most revolutionary and capable Porsche Turbo to ever come out of Germany. The already explosive power can be further increased with the new 997 Turbo IPD Intake Plenums.
The patented IPD Plenum design works exceptionally well with all forced induction applications and the 997 Turbo is no exception. Power and torque increases provided by the IPD plenum are impressive and stay over and above all factory power curves from launch to redline. Maximum power increases take place in the midrange where it's most needed and most critical.
Maximum horsepower gains range from 30 to 35 depending on vehicle condition and pre-existing mods. The 997 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.
Unlike the 996 Turbo the 997 Turbo requires an “adaptation” period that can be fully realized with either a series of hard pulls on the dyno or 10 to 50 miles of hard driving which of course IPD recommends only be performed on a closed circuit race track.
The 997 Turbo has an extremely sensitive ECU/DME making it prone to external environmental corrections so it is imperative that proper, adequate and consistent cooling be available when you dyno any of the 997 Turbos to get accurate and reliable dyno figures both before and after each test.
Installation of all Turbo Plenums is highly recommended to be performed by qualified and trained Porsche technicians.
Power obsessed Turbo customers looking to push the motorsport envelope a little harder would best benefit from the larger 82mm “Competition” IPD plenum fitted with a factory 997 GT3 82mm Porsche throttle body (additional purchase required).
The larger 82mm intake opening allows for even greater air flow to help optimize the more extreme mods such as larger turbos, intercoolers, Y Pipes and more aggressive software.
This larger version Plenum is also designed to perform with the higher flowing IPD “Y” Pipe.
