    bye bye boxster S .. hello 911 :)

    my new 996 turbo S
    it goes like hell:)just unbelivable
    the engine is modified by techart now it devolops 540hp

    Re: bye bye boxster S .. hello 911 :)

    Congrats!

    Quite a "Rottweiller" you have there .

    Re: bye bye boxster S .. hello 911 :)

    Very nice, Powerstar!

    When do you plan to move up to their T3.1 kit (600HP/740Nm) or T4.1 (646HP/870Nm)?

    Re: bye bye boxster S .. hello 911 :)

    Congrats on the Turbo. I also went from a Boxster S to a Turbo.

    Re: bye bye boxster S .. hello 911 :)

    I think i will do the 646hp update in summer but i can't imagine that it could be even faster than now
    Some weeks ago i drove the new Mercedes clk Dtm but i think my turbo is faster than the mercedes.
    what do you think is there a big difference between my 540hp one and the 646hp one ?

    Above 200 km/h the difference will be enormous. However, you should ask yourself whether you truly need that power.

    Re: bye bye boxster S .. hello 911 :)

    Of course at the moment i'm really impressed by the enormous power of the TT but in an few months it will be just normal.
    As we all know you nerver can have enough power

    Ain't that the truth ? If the reliability is good and you want more power, then I say go for it!

    Powerstar, I like the way you think.

    I have never driven a Techart-tuned 996TT, but as you can see from my signature, here in the USA, I have used GIAC/Evolution Motorsports' tuning package for my 996TSCab. I currently have their stage 4 600HP/600lb-ft upgrade, and the car comes back from the shop next month with GIAC/EVO's GT700 kit good for 700HP-ish/750lb-ft-ish fun.

    We'll have to "compare notes" with official rennteam postings this summer publicizing our tuning experiences.

    Re: bye bye boxster S .. hello 911 :)

    Stunning! Good move

    Re: bye bye boxster S .. hello 911 :)

    my new turbo is dead
    i drove on the autobahn about 240km/h then there was ab big bang .
    i don't have any turbopressure.
    i think the twinturbos are gone ?
    what could this be ? what do you think ?
    at the moment it is at the porsche service station

    Re: bye bye boxster S .. hello 911 :)

    Wow that is not good. Did you throw any CELs or codes? The bang does not sound good (backfire?) Hope yu get it worked out, but with your mods the dealer will probably not cover it.

    Re: bye bye boxster S .. hello 911 :)

    a short time before the turbocharger only produced 0,4 bar (warm engine).. at a short stop it cooled down and everything worked usually.
    after the bang :
    -no turbo pressure
    -psm off
    -abs off
    -rearwing not working

    Re: bye bye boxster S .. hello 911 :)

    That doesn't sound good... hope it works out ok..

    Re: bye bye boxster S .. hello 911 :)

    Have it checked at the dealer. Might be something as simple as a boost hose that got detached.

    Re: bye bye boxster S .. hello 911 :)

    Hope it gets worked out! That's the one downside of a modified car - never know when it's going to go "bang"...

    Re: bye bye boxster S .. hello 911 :)

    03-turbo911 you was right.
    But today i was at my porsche dealer because they called me on my mobilephone.. there would be something wrong with my old boxster.
    I smells like i had somked in it and parts of the interior would fail.
    i went to them and what i saw was just awful.
    There was a fire at the porsche daeler and my ex-car got hardest hit:(.
    It totaly burned out.Terrible.....it was such a nice car.
    The new owner nearly was crying.
    i will post some pictures as soon as possible

    so it looked before

    Re: bye bye boxster S .. hello 911 :)


    Re: bye bye boxster S .. hello 911 :)

    Thats tragic

    Were there anyother cars damaged?

    I dont think their insurance will be too pleased the dealers that is.
