    • TPG Porsche 997.1 Turbo tuning results on Mustang dyno - Stock, Cobb 93 OTS, and custom tune with bolt ons

      Great overlay here from TPG Tuning who worked on this Porsche 997.1 Turbo. Keep in mind the 997.1 generation Turbo has the Mezger 3.6 liter derived motor without direct fuel injection. It is rated at 480 horsepower.


      The baseline is an impressive 470 awhp with 435 lb-ft of torque at the wheels.

      A Cobb OTS 93 octane tune takes horsepower to 514 and torque to 481 lb-ft at the wheels.

      Now how about bolt ons and a TPG custom tune? 557 all wheel horsepower and 515 lb-ft of wheel torque:


      Not bad at all for these mods and pump fuel:

      Fabspeed Motorsport X-Pipe Exhaust
      Sach's 2.5 Clutch
      Sharkwerks Coolant Tubes
      Injector Dynamics ID1050X Injectors
      COBB Tuning V3 AP
      TPG Tuning ProTune

        Baseline comes in at the crank rating for a car that isn't known to be highly underrated? It's nice to have the deltas to refer to, but it's time to calibrate your dyno.

        The delta is important but as you state I think this dyno is reading pretty high...

        Interesting:

        Joseph all Mustang dynos read a bit different, ours is typically slightly lower than a DJ however we don’t use corrected numbers on the dyno, so these numbers are uncorrected and on a fairly cold day. I thought the baseline numbers were a bit high for the car stock, but I’m also unsure if it was ever flash / tuned previously. Either way, the gains / delta are what we’re looking for!

        That is an awesome gain for stock turbos.

        Just to check, how does this car now compare to your tuned 991.2 Sticky?

        Weight and tuned power on stock turbos for the two cars would be interesting comparison.

        I have always really wanted a 997.1 Turbo since they came out and still do but once lease return base 991.2's start depreciating to about the same money it will be a hard choice. The 991.2 is definitely nicer interior and more comfortable I would guess.

        Honestly, I'm not sure. We would have to get them on the same Mustang to compare.

        Would be great to see and would wake people up as to the capability of the 991.2...
