    • Protomotive 3.8 liter 996 Twin Turbo destroys a T1 Racing GT1R package Nissan GT-R

      The 911 Turbo and Nissan GTR battles tend to go back and forth depending on level of modification. The cars are compared frequently due to the similarity of all wheel drive and twin turbo six-cylinder powerplants which make for great tuning platforms. In this instance a Protomotive tuned built motor 996TT with a 3.8 liter flat-6 and a pair of GT3582 turbos on C16 simply pulls away from a tuned Nissan GTR estimated to be making somewhere in the mid 700 wheel horsepower range.


      That certainly is not small power but this 996TT is on another level. The Nissan GTR features the GT1R package from T1 Racing which to be perfectly honest PorscheBoost has not heard much about. It is said to be around the 750 wheel range but that is not nearly enough to hang with this Protomotive 996TT which has trapped a very healthy 148.9 in the 1/4 mile. That trap speeds shows in the video below as the 996TT takes a second to spool and then... is gone.

The long and short is Vinny trailed his Supra and Eddie drove the Porsche and it kinda got under Vinny's skin. Fast forward and they are both at the first rest stop on the NJ Pike leaving the track. Some more words are exchanged and Vinny is now backing the Supra out the trailer. These two proceed to pull onto the Pike using all the tow vehicles to block traffic in the truck lanes. Truck are going mad blowing there horns and these two line and run. Eddie launches and rides the bumper for like 5 or 6 secs before he walks Vinny. I will never forget that, that $#@! was awesome to say the very least. I was with a friend who had a single turbo Supra Vinny had tuned and I was in a Vortech Saleen at the time. I never felt so slow LOL
