    Porsche 9A1 engine info needed!

     

    Can anyone confirm that 9A1 engine is used in Cayman`s that are racing on Intercontinental Trophy Cup?
     
    I`m asking this because, as you all know, there are some informations that 9A1 engine will be in new 991 GT3. Main concern is that 9A1 is not proved as successful in motorsports.
     
    Since Cayman`s are winning on Intercontinental Trophy Cup, it would be nice to hear that they are using 9A1 engine for racing.

    Yes. :)

    And they are kicking butt! No issues reported at all except some over revs. This engine should be right at home in the GT3 with a bit of tweaking! 


    Re: Porsche 9A1 engine info needed!

    What about the dry sump issue?

    What dry sump issue? 

    The 991 GT3 engine version gets a dry sump lubrification system... Smiley

    As far as I know , the 9A1 is not a real dry sump engine. There is no successful racing engine in the world that does not have a dry sump. 

    All I want to know is whether Porsche have redesigned the engine for the GT3. That is the issue.

    If the engine does not have a dry sump, it may suffice for amateur track days, but it will never do for professional racing. If the GT3 does not have a proper dry sump engine, then we will know that there wont be a 991 based RSR.

    ^ Great point. When GT3 comes out, it will be good indicator are we going to see 991 RSR on race tracks.

    It will be...when the 991 GT3 shows up. Smiley

    Don't worry...same strategy AMG uses with the SLS and C63 PP for example. Practically the same engine, one with dry sump, the other without.

    There was some thought to introduce dry sump lubrification with the upcoming Carrera powerkit but apparently this was too expensive.
