I miss my NA, this is only 4 days after getting the turbo. Dunno, but a 911 should have that boxer engine wail at 7000rpm which the turbo don't have.

But the acceleration out of a junction this morning at full throttle was a shock, I broke twice the speed limit in just under 4 seconds was a shocker. Never thought it was that powerful.

You have to get the exhaust sorted!
I was moaning about the exhaust sound on the forum immediately after I bought it.

Which one you recommend? Only got the fabspeed xpipe.

As others have said it really is night and day. The smile from torque of the turbo hasn’t worn off after nearly two years of ownership. Genuinely not bothered by a GT3 upgrade such is my love for it. GT2 however...

I got the Sharkwerks after initially reading about it in Total 911 by Joe Croser (Jcx).
I have not been disappointed. It does crack and pop as well. Joe has put a video on you tube. Kline was also recommended by forum members but I wanted to keep it simple as the car is under warranty.

Grin they are a bit quick off the mark...then quick to the speeed limit...then quick to license loosing speeds....then quick to warp speed... basically they are quick Floor

But the exhaust note is thier Achilles heel. The future might be bright though as the 992 might have the same magic other manufacturers are wielding in thier turbo charged sports cars. Tried a few recently and they sound a lot better 👍

One of the "man maths" arguments to myself goes something like this: the Turbo won't need any mods or upgrades. Compared to the money spent on my Carrera (around £10k to date) the Turbo might actually save me money, especially if it holds its value.

But it seems you should spend on the following:
* decent exhaust (Sharkwerks, Kline?)
* braided hoses, pads and fluid
* the DSC module for the PASM
* EVOMSIT remap - although that may not really be needed, isn't 500 hp more than enough?

Again, very interesting contributions on this thread, thank you gentlemen.

Are these after market. Any effect on warranty. I do want to get the brakes sorted...

Dunno what happened there....

Easy fix with brakes Nick. Braided hoses, upgraded pads and fluid. Sorted!

If it's a Porsche warranty then anything that's changed from std will mean that the warranty will 'probably' be revoked.
As your going from std pads to effectively 'race' pads and also std lines to braided hoses and also changing the fluid to DOT5 then they will more than likely say no chance.
I drove a car this year that had std discs but upgraded pads and lines and it was transformed, I think Porsche have gone for the longer lasting pads as opposed to the Pagid race/track pads which are the ones to have.
TBH on the road your probably not going to need them but on the track you must have them done and put on a set of Michelins as well.
I've also gone for the Sharkwerks pipe and it sounds really good, has a nice pop in sport mode on the change up! It's also a quarter of the price of a kline.
