    A new record..... 996tt !

    Here you go, yes its 377 km/h by 996tt owned by a friend

    Re: A new record..... 996tt !

    WOW! We need more info on that! I can see its a tip but who's the tuner? Is it 9ff? What has the car done to it?

    Re: A new record..... 996tt !

    Can you tell us more?

    Re: A new record..... 996tt !

    Impressive... But, yes, we need to know more about the car!!

    Re: A new record..... 996tt !

    Bet at least 750hp

    Re: A new record..... 996tt !

    Isn't that the photoshopped photo that surfaced in the thread started by WhiteTT at 6speedonline? He claimed to do 327 km/h, which was discounted by several users and then some people had fun and photoshopped the photo - that was about two-to-three years ago.

    Re: A new record..... 996tt !

    Thanx all for replaying guys

    To be honest i dont have lot of information yet about this car, but what i know is that this guy studying in Setzirland and he went to the local tuner over there and asked him to increase the boost to 1.5 bar as it is obviouse in the pic. Now, are there any other modifications rather than programing to 1.5 bar. I dont have the answer right now. i will get the answer to u guyz soon, i promise.

    The funny thing about this pic is that after taking this pic, both engine and turbos were gone ! they were spoiled because of the overboost. I will get more information soon by asking him within days maximum.

    Regards

    No my friends, this is true and i know the guy personally.

    Re: A new record..... 996tt !

    The truth is that no tuner knoledgeble enough to be able to overcome the throttle body shut down (at 1,3bar) would just bump the boost without this being part of a package. K16's won't even do 1,5bar so thats out of question but even a set of K24's won't be blowing nothing but hot air at those speeds, therefore not producing the power needed to do that kind of speed. Its got to be an hybrid set up with aftermarket IC's and if this was done by Sportec (the best known Porsche tuner in Switzerland) they would rebuild the engine with proper internals and most of all they would stand behind their work in case of disaster. Please ask your friend for details has we are all in suspense here!

    Re: A new record..... 996tt !

    Oh, really?

    Your friend? I'm raising the BS flag to full mast and calling you out.

    Re: A new record..... 996tt !

    Guys, guys!


    Lets see what the man has to say first... Its not his car so let's see what his friend says but I've done some research and found a post with some info and according to the car's Instructions Manual :

    996tt Tiptronic(stock gears and tires)@ 6750rpm = 330kph
    996tt Manual(stock gears and tires)@ 6750rpm = 305kph

    If top gear ratio in a tip is .83 then 6400rpm in a tt tip is 313kph = 194.5mph which indicates that unless your friends TT has a modified Tiptronic auto box as well the 6400rpm will fall very short of the even indicated 377km/h since real 313km/h on the Turbo's dash is approximately 332, 333km/h on the dash (self experience).

    Meanwhile here's a better quality "foto" posted in 2003 on another forum:



    And to prove it was photoshopped some fellow user posted this, please notice the boost, clock, rpm and even the time:



    So my theory is that on the first foto which is the "original" one the friend was seeing around 332km/h and Photoshopped it to 377km/h to impress his friend. Just a theory though.

    Exactly correct, J. Seven. THAT is why I'm calling him out. The picture is the same, 2 years old and it had been MADE by an American, using PHOTOSHOP. I damn well WILL call the guy out. Now, whether this was some kind of joke or not, I don't know, but come on! Posting pictures of your "friend" doing 377 km/h is just a little bit childish, isn't it?
