Hi all

I have just bought a 997 turbo and wondered what if any mods you recommend. I plan on putting on a sports exhaust and changing the stereo for a Apple play unit.

I have seen some with the side vents modded to remove the middle plastic bar which looks good and gives the air scoops a bigger appearance. This is on my list of jobs too.

A DSCv1 PASM upgrade will improve the handling and ride considerably, especially in Sports mode.

Yes, this is an excellent mod right here. Transforms the car in a very positive way. Contact 9e for further details.
And if you want to go down the tuning route there are a ton of options. Again, check out the 9e website Thumb

I keep reading about the dsc mod. What does it do exactly? Is it a plug and play thing or is it coded into ecu?

Thanks

It's a 2 minute fit, totally plug and play as it is just a swap for your original unit.

Further details and a lot of glowing recommendations here

Plug and play, it turns your passive suspension into active suspension.

Quick and easy way to up power is exhaust and inter-cooler upgrade. Is it a gen 1 or 2?
The exhaust mods on the Gen 2 are a bit easier and cheaper as the Cats are separate. If it's a gen 2 then there's a member who was selling a Kline exhaust which are regarded as one of the best.
TBH they're pretty flippin rapid as they are so you maybe disappointed if you throw a load of money at the car and find it's not really that much better.
I would also look at upgrading the brakes, pads and hoses and fluid. The std system can't take a track day hammering!
But as others have said the best upgrade by far is the DSC module, you might be able to get a S/H one for about £700.
Also a set of Michelin Cup 2's, they are the best rubber you can buy. Once you get new tyres get the geometry set up by a 'pro' and you'll have a very planted car.
What ever you do enjoy it they're a bargain Supercar.

The PCM is sadly lacking so changing that to something more up to date is a must.

The sports exhaust is a nice upgrade too but what sort of mods were you think about, performance, usability or styling?

It’s a gen 1

I’m thinking sports exhaust (nothing too expensive)

Re map

Dsc mod

Updated head unit

A little additional power / performance but dont want to start changing other parts

There have been a lot of threads on here regarding 'which is the best system', what ever you go for I'm afraid that the word cheap doesn't figure much! Expect to pay £2000 upwards, they do come up S/H occasionally and if they do grab it straight away.
The only people to trust with a remap are probably 9e.
As I mentioned the intercoolers are an easy upgrade and do add quite a bit of power but again they're not cheap.

If you are considering exhaust, intercoolers and remap then you will need to fit an updated clutch as well, so allow for that in your budget. I think they are around £1500 fitted.

Agree also, avoid cheap exhausts and non reputable tuners, they will cost you more in the end.

Personally I would put a remap right at the bottom of my wish list.
Do the intake and exhaust and if you can afford them a pair of up rated inter coolers then see what the car goes like, TBH if that still doesn't float your boat then i'd be surprised!
Just the sound off a good exhaust will make you think you've got 700 bhp under your right foot, I promise you the exhaust upgrade is worth every penny just for the pops and bangs when your in sport mode Hand

Thanks guys. Any recommendations on exhausts at the 2k mark? A few pops and bangs would be nice. I heard the Europipe stage 2 exhaust Whixh sounds amazing but at circ 4500 it’s way out the budget

This company are selling 'Kline' systems via Ebay so it might be worth giving them a call, the system for a 996 Turbo was just over £2 k.

If I had a turbo, this is what I'd do:

1st: suspension: TPC Racing DSC magic box and a realignment
2nd: new rubber MPS Cup2 or 4S
3rd: upgrade brakes with fresh discs, uprated pads, braided lines and fresh fluid

1, 2 & 3 all in quick succession.

4th: add some noise with sports cats and catback
5th: add some cooling with bigger intercoolers

And finally:

6th: if you have a healthy engine, think about a remap and whatever supporting mods may be required (intake, injectors, clutch etc.). I can't really comment on this stage, as I don't run a Turbo, but the usual package on any turbo tends to involve a new intercooler, downpipe, intake, fuel injectors/fuel pump, maybe ignition coils...
