    Hey Kreso,

    you look really excited in this video sequence

    Apologies, apologies. I hope you can forgive me

    Re: Powerkit 997 turbo - 520hp confirmed

    Markus,
    I forgive you!
    But, most 997 Turbo fans(you included) will be in that state of mind if this info is true...
    It seems little bit too early for X50 power kit yet, I will call my friend in Stuttgart in few minutes to find out more.

    Thanks for forgiving me

    I agree, this would be excellent news! I thought that x50 should be available sometime next spring. However, fall 2006 would be even better (although that would complicate my decision making process a bit - GT2 vs 997TTx50).

    Re: Powerkit 997 turbo - 520hp confirmed

    Huh!
    Here are the unconfirmed info from Stuttgart:
    -it seems that power kit will be release before. September? Maybe!
    -520hp? Again this is not definitive number but, no more then 520hp!
    -NO overboost since it will use 3.8L, more torque in wider rpm range
    -317km/h(maybe 320km/h, we will see)
    -SAME performance manual/TIP!!
    -very expensive, read more then 15000Euro...
    -NOT retrofitting!

    Good news if you ask me!

    wow..good news..

    But,now that i know that the rumored price is near that(15.000 Euro)and also if is less..i'm sure it will be not under 10.000 Euro,i can tell for sure that i'm not interested in the powerkit ,i think that i will be happy also with only 480HP..

    Re: Powerkit 997 turbo - 520hp confirmed

    So if the powerkit is NOT retrofitable, does this mean that the entire engine is replaced?

    That would be interesting news.

    Might be consistent with RC's reports about a permanent overboost on Tip cars, however: Is the better straightline performance of Tip the outcome of different overboost characteristics as compared to manual? If so, this would be inconsistent with official power figures, charts and statements?

    Unlikely though, as such marketing strategy would be illegal

    Somebody please shed some light on this (I actually thought of RC )...

    If x50 top-speed is higher than 310kph I assume that x50 comes together with a different gearing. Thus, x50 cars will have a different gear-box which would make a retrofit impossible/excessively expensive. Same situation as with 996TT/TTS.

    Re: Powerkit 997 turbo - 520hp confirmed

    First commercial use of a water cooled GT1 3.8 l block. Intriguing that the power kit increases engine size...perhaps better called Turbo S.

    Re: Powerkit 997 turbo - 520hp confirmed

    Seems unusual that the "power kit" would involve an entirely new engine. That would be a major departure for P.

    Re: Powerkit 997 turbo - 520hp confirmed

    Let's clear up few things, 3.8L is not new engine!
    Current 3.6L 997 Turbo engine-3600cc, 100.00mm bore, 76.4mm stroke
    Potential X50 engine 3.8L-3795cc, 102.7mm bore, 76.4mm stroke

    You see, the only difference is bigger bore. Same VTGs, more power and torque(wider peak torque range with NO overboost).

    Re: Powerkit 997 turbo - 520hp confirmed

    Kreso - most would construe a change in displacement as a new engine. And as U boat noted, that is quite a departure for Porsche when it comes to a "PowerKit
    "...

    Re: Powerkit 997 turbo - 520hp confirmed

    Finally a new turbo that appeals to me.
    Bring it on!

    Re: Powerkit 997 turbo - 520hp confirmed

    ouch, that hurts Aum! You finally decided on the GT3, and now you 'll like the new turbo S again!
