Evening
After 6 months of the Turbo X50 I have bee
n looking at a few upgrades. I have on the list

Inconel 100 Cel Kline exhaust
Forge Actuators
Forge Recirculation Valve
Remap - Not sure which to go with. Experiences appreciated.
997 gt2rs intercooler.

I think that should then do it.

Any thoughts from you all would be appreciated

Thanks

I have an x50 and those mods aparts from the 9e switchable exhaust, which is jekel and Hyde. I have the map as sorted for me by 9e, whatever that is. I also have a 5bar fpr and bigger throttle body/plenum. How it all works together I have no idea, sorry, but it just does - brilliantly. And has done for years. Car was simply transformed. I can highly recommend.

Although having said all that, I have now been wondering whether to go back to 9e for an environmentally friendly option against buying a Taycan. I.e. upgrade my car to Taycan power and save the planet by not buying a new car. Man maths at their finest.

Floor the amount of miles we all cover in our toys the co footprint must be much smaller!

Back to the mods. One of the first walls you’ll hit which will limit the power you can reach will be the injectors. They max out very quickly and become the limiting factor. Swapping there regulator for a 5 bar will add some scope. Ideally though fit bigger injectors.
The other thing to think about is the clutch if this is a manual car. Tiptronic is good as is. If you push the limit at 3.8bar fuel then a standard clutch will probably be okay for some time. If you are hitting 550hp then you’ll need an upgraded clutch. Best to discuss this all with your tuner.

Bigger throttle body and plenum will not hurt but probably won’t bring much to table re added numbers.
9e switchable as sadly no longer available.

Nice to see a tuning thread for these cars. Reminds me of the good ol days on this forum.

I can't speak of the Kline exhaust for the Turbo but I've driven behind this one...

http://911uk.com/viewtopic.php?p=1511576&highlight=#1511576

Titanium so amazingly light. Also alarmingly loud which may be good or bad depending on your point of view but I'm pretty damned sure they let the turbos breath MUCH easier!

That sounds like you're going to have one hell of a car soon!

I'd be interested to see your feedback on who you go with for tuning.

Ken at 9e seems to be popular on here. I've heard good things about Marski on the Facebook community side of things. Neither have a good thing to say about each other unfortunately.

Everyone is a 'hero' on Facebook Rolling Eyes

I'd stick with real people who you can see and go to if/when you have an issue Thumb

Do this.
Upgrade diverter valves and f pipe
Upgrade plugs
Upgrade turbo actuators
5 bar fuel pressure regulator
DO88 GT2 intercoolers
ECU retune
Kline 100 cell exhaust
+ new clutch (the existing one was original)

All adds up to a 9e upgrade. It flies and sounds pretty good too. 565 horses. Cant get enough of it.

Ken and the team deliver. Thumb

Thanks for your comments on this. Would the Kline manifolds make much difference I top of the exhaust, seems a lot of money in comparison.

I’m in. Kline 100cel exhaust and manifolds ordered . 4 week lead time so should be here for beginning of March. Now to decide on the ECU tuner. The COBB handheld is looking a strong favourite. Anyone used on here?
