    • Gintani creates a Porsche 991 GT3 turbo kit - Turbocharged 991.2 GT3 RS

      PorscheBoost sat on this story for quite some time but it seems Gintani is finally ready to reveal a project they were keeping under wraps until completion. How does a turbocharged Porsche 911 GT3 grab you and in particular a twin turbo 991.2 GT3 RS?


      Well that is what we have here and it sounds spectacular.

      What can we tell you? Not much. It is tuned on the factory ECU.

      As for cost and the power figures, those are not available either.

      What we can say is boosting a 911 GT3 transforms it into a monster much like when you boost the high revving and naturally aspirated V10 Huracan/Gallardo/R8 platforms.

      More details to come.

        Can't wait to see numbers and how much boost they used.

        I actually think an electric turbo/supercharger would work better for the GT3/RS 4.0 engine as it would be a cooler charge and would require less plumbing vs. a traditional turbo setup.

        I'd love to see a centri on one like what VF used to do on Carreras.

        I'm really looking forward to the details, but would love to have a simpler and more reversible option available... Part of the appeal of the GT3 to me is that they hardly depreciate if you buy right and take care of them. A single turbo off OEM manifolds and a touch of meth rather than an intercooler would be a no brainier for me. My goals are a bit different as I'm only looking to combat altitude rather than make huge power, though.

        Someone on 6SpeedOnline built a TT GT3 about 10yrs ago and it was a BEAST.

        Is this thing a kit, or a one-off?

        This is a kit they intend to sell.

        The owner's original plan was a custom supercharger system done by bbi with an RSR bodykit that he wanted to debut at sema this year.

        Why bbi? They don't do forced induction setups.

        Would love to see a supercharger on this kind of motor to enhance the stock power band.

        Same, plus earlier install and easier tuning. Why hasn't anyone done it?

        Let's see what the 992 GT3 brings. If it's 9500+ rpm...

        BBI actually has a setup they use mixing the gt3 and turbo motors. Look up their pikes peak winning car.

        Yeah they somehow failed to mention that is a TTE setup...

        Their GT2rs vmax has the TTE turbos, the Pikes peak car is a full custom BBi setup with garrett.

        I think you're correct. I swapped them.
