    x51 or supercharger???

    Do you guys prefered to supercharge or x51 the 997? http://www.evoms.com/porsche%20ec%20art%20test.htm
    Any thoughts?

    Re: x51 or supercharger???

    i would do neither with car still under warranty.
    not worth assuming any liability/responsibility for M96/M97 engine's chronic RMS leaks.

    Re: x51 or supercharger???

    X51 will not void warranty. Porsche OEM.

    Re: x51 or supercharger???

    w/ x51 you will have warranty. can't justify it for only 26hp although you will some get some back at resale.

    fyi: x51 was on sale for $11k at a porsche dealer. porsche lists installaion as 26 hours (~$3200).

    Re: x51 or supercharger???

    Today I drove a supercharged Porsche for the first time -- 93 RS America with TPC supercharger. I was very impressed with the power delivery -- very smooth. I'd be concerned about voiding the warranty on a new car, though. Plus, resale would be harsh. If you want more power, trade up for a GT3. Even with the hit on trade/resale, you'd come out better IMO.

    If that includes the Porsche Sport Exhaust, the total with labor would be less than the US $16,900 factory option price. Have to wonder about that one

    Re: x51 or supercharger???

    paul,

    read the post again. SALE price was 11k although retail price is 14k+.

    check carlsen porsche web site. now they have it for 12k.
    http://www.carlsenporsche.com/parts_912P.shtml

    you can read the tbs from porsche at renntech and check out what porsche states as installation time for x51.

    with an out of state order for the x51 parts you will save taxes on the 11k-12k.

    I used a TPC supercharger on my Boxster and ended-up with a blown engine Totaly not worth it.

    Re: x51 or supercharger???

    Wow based on the site the supercharger takes a 996TT from 415 HP to 900 HP. Too much for my blood. I would love to have the X51 even though it is only 26 HP.

    PS. Does the woman in the pic come with the the turbo?

    Re: x51 or supercharger???

    Hey I see EVO also has a 1080 HP option. I guess if 900 HP isn't enough. Anyone know what the cost of this is? Just curious.
