    • Gintani 2009-2011 Porsche 997.2 GT3 3.8 liter flat-6 before and after 91 octane pump gas custom dyno tune results

      The Porsche 997 GT3's with their race inspired GT1 blocks are very high strung motors difficult to extract power from. The GT3 RS 4.0 currently having the highest naturally aspirated horsepower per liter of any production car. The vehicle here is the 997.2 version of the GT3 with a 3.8 liter flat-6 rated at 435 horsepower. The baseline on the Gintani Dyno Dynamics is a very conservative 329.4 wheel horsepower.


      This baseline would be much, much higher on a dynojet as numbers from a dynojet for two GT3's posted earlier this year show. A 997.2 GT3 RS with the same 3.8 liter although in a slightly higher state of tune put out 419.7 wheel horsepower while being rated only 15 horses higher than the 997.2 GT3 tested here which should illustrate how much lower this dyno reads.

      Additionally, a dynojet run for a stock 997.2 GT3 is posted below with the car hitting 404 wheel horsepower much higher than the 329.4 wheel horsepower on the Gintani Dyno Dynamics. So, hopefully people understand they should pay attention to the delta and not the peak numbers as dynos can vary greatly.

      997.2 GT3 Dynojet Baseline:


      On 91 octane pump gas Gintani is able to extract another 12.4 wheel horsepower tune only which is a very nice result. That would likely put this motor with just a tune slightly above the GT3 RS 3.8 horsepower numbers. This would mean one could expect in the ~420 wheel horsepower range on a dynojet. Definitely impressive and one can see where Porsche extracted some power on the RS model, from a more aggressive tune.
