    993TT Pics: Ready for Power Upgrade

    My 993TT is ready for its planned power upgrade this fall-Protomotive stage 4 by Protosport, Inc. in northern New Jersey: 3.8L conversion with hybrid turbo's, either Garrett or BW, speed density (as opposed to mass air flow) system using an NA Motronic 993 ECU with all the proper intake, exhaust, intercooler and plumbing changes needed. The car is going there in 2-3 weeks!

    One thing I did was buy another set of 996TT rims for it (11" in the rear so it can better handle 295 tires, instead of stock 285's), and I found a "graphite silver" set new from a Porsche dealer. When I got them, I thought they would look better on the 996TSCab, with the standard silver turbo wheels (both sets hollow spoke) best on the 993-since I am trying to keep the 993TT look as stock as possible to suit my conservative tastes. Here they are:

    In front, note the USA spec. nose with the bumperettes retained, but with the USA style clear turn signal indicators, as well as black Turbo S style front intakes for more air to prepare for the front-mount oil cooler in the power upgrade:

    Inside, I put a gold Porsche crest on the stock steering wheel and jettisoned the stock analog phone (Fujitsu), and had a custom cradle installed on the factory console to hold my Blackberry:

    And a very unobtrusive placement of the Motorola Bluetooth control on the black leather dash above the HiFi unit. Now I can't wait to get the car tuned and back in my hands for next spring:

    One can never get enough looking and admiring the 993s.. Wow!

    Re: 993TT Pics: Ready for Power Upgrade

    Very Nice, Al!

    How much power comes with Stage 4?

    Re: 993TT Pics: Ready for Power Upgrade

    Nice and subtle changes Al, looking forward to a video of the finished result

    Depending on how we tweak it, anywhere from 700-750HP with 650-700lb-ft torque. It uses the 1995 993 NA Motronics with Proto pressure sensing, the 3.8L conversion uses factory Mahle p/c's, GT2 Evo cams, modified camshafts, twin-plug, Proto equal length headers/exhaust/intercooler and plumbing with a Proto modified wastegate controller. One of the important selections, of course, is the hybrid turbo-I have heard of guys using KKK K18/24's, but Garrett GT28RS's (same ones on my Noble "M600" tune) or others work, as well.

    Re: 993TT Pics: Ready for Power Upgrade

    Ha and Elysium,

    Thanks. I do like the "Sleeper" look with the dramatic mods. confined to the powerplant.

    That should get the job done

    Re: 993TT Pics: Ready for Power Upgrade

    I had stage 3 done on my previous Turbo and it ran good but did make a few trips to the dealer for repairs

    Re: 993TT Pics: Ready for Power Upgrade

    beautiful car !

    Never in my life have I ever sold a car and regreted it except for my 993tt.. It was/is the best sports car I've owned (CGT included). PERIOD

    Re: 993TT Pics: Ready for Power Upgrade

    I'm envious of you Al! 993TT is a dream car!

    Re: 993TT Pics: Ready for Power Upgrade

    Ha and Mike,

    Just do what I did-buy one used-there are plenty of well-maintained 993TT/TTS's around the world for sale.

    Re: 993TT Pics: Ready for Power Upgrade

    I saw two silver just today on the road...
