    Carrera Performane Package worth the $$$$??

    Just seems like alot of $$$ for 26 horsepower. what kind of performance gains would you see from this? opinions? thanks!

    Re: Carrera Performane Package worth the $$$$??

    I can think of better uses for 16k than 26 horsepower

    Re: Carrera Performane Package worth the $$$$??

    I would just get PSE, which is probably the funnest part of X51.

    If I were really serious about X51, I'd get a GT3.

    Re: Carrera Performane Package worth the $$$$??

    I think the X51 kit is just like everything else. Sure it's only 26 horses but its like every other option. All seem to be overpriced but hey we still buy them. Its really like the difference between a 997 and 997S. Sure you get other features but the biggest is the HP. Do you really need it, no, but do you want it, yes.

    Re: Carrera Performane Package worth the $$$$??

    Money is relative and I couldn't find better uses for $16,000 (actually $16,900). It seems that those on the various forums that have ordered the X51 kit and have had a chance to use it like both the performance and sound and like me are glad they ordered it.

    Re: Carrera Performane Package worth the $$$$??

    YES! It's not about the horsepower it's about the midrange torque. With previous cars I've spent much less than this on upgrades that have promised 100hp+ gains... and this X51 kit is the best money I have ever spent on a mod.

    If you can afford it then do it )

    Re: Carrera Performane Package worth the $$$$??

    Agree, agree and agree. I'm glad I got it- when you drop over 100k what's another 16... There's a noticeable diff in performance and sound.


    Re: Carrera Performane Package worth the $$$$??

    That is a great point.

    Re: Carrera Performane Package worth the $$$$??

    I have a factory X51 C4S and the power is very noticeable not only on the top end but also in the 2500 - 4000 rpm range. It is a lot of $$$ for the improvement and it just may be a function of one's willingness to spend disposable as to whether it is a worthwhile package or not. If this was $5-8000 it would be a no-brainer for most Porsche owners I think.

    Re: Carrera Performane Package worth the $$$$??

    agree - for 5k I wouldn't even think about it

    Well you can just keep on making that argument until you end up with a Veyron.

    Re: Carrera Performane Package worth the $$$$??

    I think that one can get alot more than 26 hp for the 17k, if one were to do different mods, from aftermarket companys. Like an exhaust, intake, and chip. That alone will get you your 26hp, and for what? 6 grand to do it right? Then you can go buy a 200 mph motorcycle with the difference in money.

    Re: Carrera Performane Package worth the $$$$??

    It had to be specified..



    No regrets.

    Regards,


    Greg

    Re: Carrera Performane Package worth the $$$$??

    well, after I optioned up my 997S, I realized that I was looking at more than 110k. So I just ordered a turbo instead. wanted a GT3, but cant find those. so turbo it is.
