• Porscheboost member M3ntal runs a 10.3@136 1/4 mile with stock internal motor 996TT

      Congratulations to M3ntal on putting down a very impressive 1/4 mile run with his stock motor 996TT. You may remember this car dyno'd 717 wheel horsepower on the stock motor with E85 at 22 psi. For this run the car was running 22psi and E85 along with FP30R turbos with the tune coming from Roshan Patel. The end result is a very stout 10.3@136 1/4 mile run. The car also appears to be converted to rear wheel drive.


      Ditching the all wheel drive makes the car lighter but also allows for more horsepower to the rear wheels. Not to mention parts won't break as easily on the strip. Putting power down does not seem to be an issue as the 60 foot time was 1.671.

      Congrats again to @M3ntal , well done.

        The X50 is nice if you can get it for cheap used. The intercoolers, turbos (K24's), etc., can make more power than the standard K16's. If ditching the stock turbos it doesn't really matter too much.

The only thing ive noticed is that on the higher mileage ones weve had to replace the radiators because they either leak or get so clogged up with dirt that its really hard to wash them out...fresh radiators on a car that gets tracked most of its life is always a welcome improvement.
        The problem with the radiators is that they get clogged up with leaves. If you don't clean them out (take off the bumper, loosen the condensers, and blow the debris out) all the debris will retain moisture and rot the radiators. It takes only a few hours to take off the front bumper to do that. I plan on doing it annually.

        No, mine is standard. Its the same transmission. I believe the gt2 transmission has a factory oil cooler whereas the others didn't.

        Right on. The stock k16 turbos are only good for about 430 whp on 1.2 bar and fall off on power pretty badly. When I took those off the car really started going fast Click here to enlarge

        Any links to where you got the turbo kit? Any build thread I missed?

        These are HBK (Home Built Killer) cars -- Everything they do (M3ntal, proidigymb & Tim941NYC) is 1 off & their builds are listed over on 6Speed. Been reading Tim941NYC's build thread (the red ~1,300 WHP 996) & his fabrication quality is immaculate.

        pshhh what an outdated platform you have m3ntal. how can you even call it reliable when you broke an axle in 16 months of ownership AND had to do spark plugs.

        junk cant even keep front wheels on the ground.
