It is still important that Porsches be maintained and cared for, despite their renowned reliability and fun factor. Taking into account the fact that you may require a Porsche service in the near future, we have assembled the most common and important maintenance parts. Our catalog of Porsche parts and maintenance kits can help you keep your Porsche in pristine condition with a variety of accessories available in one place, so you don't have to look elsewhere.


Porsche Performance Upgrade Parts


Are you experiencing turbocharger problems?

The throttle body size for Porsche's GT3 or GT3RS models has not changed since 2007; this means that they will always come with a bigger throttle body. As a general rule, when it comes to throttle size, it is well matched with the engine power of the respective vehicle. The throttle bodies of GT3 vehicles have traditionally been built with an 82mm diameter since the 2008 997 GT3 was introduced. This size was fixed on the 991.1 and 991.2 GT3's since it was the largest size offered by Bosch at the time.

Does this affect your Porsche in any way? With the installation of the 93mm throttle body, plenum, and dual cone air intake kit, the owners of the 991.1 and 991.2 GT's and Cup's will be able to add more power to their cars. 

The 4.0L flat-six engine inside the GT3 is not turbocharged, and there are no turbochargers driving air into the turbocharged engines. There has to be a reroute of some power in order to pull air into the throttle bodies since they are smaller than the stocked ones. 


Choosing the right air filter can make a huge difference

As you have no doubt noticed, pressure is an important factor in some of the modifications. In this article, we will look at a different part of your Porsche that drains your power on a regular basis. 

Let's take a look at a recent example of a throttle body. There is a possibility that you may be losing pressure in your Porsche due to an air filter that is malfunctioning.  It is possible to prevent pressure losses if no air filter is used. However, grit and particles in the air and on the road would have the unfortunate result of damaging the engine if no air filters were used. This isn't a good idea at all, right away.

It has become increasingly popular for people to install BMC or K&N filters because they do not have as much pressure drop as paper filters. For this reason, many people have upgraded their stock airboxes with these filters. The 991.2 GT3RS with the BMC filter is good to a certain point. However, we found that the size of the air box and the filter area of the car were too small for any additional power gains over the standard 520hp power output. 

It is important to think about it this way. The air filter box of a 2015 Carrera is not different from the air filter box of a 991.2 GT3, GT3RS, or any other model of 991.2. The GT3RS, despite producing 150 more horsepower, is also equipped with the same air filter as the 2013 Carrera. That's not good enough.  

We need to smoothen the path of the air through the air filter box so that the air can flow more freely through it.  By limiting the bends and turns the air has to take upon entering the engine, the plane preserves the pressure the air enters the engine with as it enters. The power increased, as you might have guessed.

It is also recommended that air filters are as large as possible. Compared to a single-cone airbox, the Dual Cone Airbox on the 991.2 GT3RS provides 350% more filter area, allowing the air to move more slowly through the filter and resulting in more power being generated by the engine.


Why Should You Care For a Muffler?

In most cases, sound mods are just designed to alter the sound of your Porsche, but it does nothing to improve the performance of your Porsche as well.

Besides being highly durable enough to withstand the punishment a GT3 can dish out, Lifetime Mufflers also allow better flow through the system, resulting in better performance. This Lifetime Muffler comes with a carefully designed X-Pipe Merge, in contrast to the stock 2.7" lower tubing on the stock muffler. This merge ensures that the pressure waves from the bank are properly merged and expanded as they exit the system. The good thing about this is there will not be a battle of shouts, so you can still have a conversation.



Other Performance Areas

In addition to improving your lap times or run times with an engine upgrade, you might also be able to improve them by upgrading the suspension and braking systems of your Porsche. As the engine power increases, it is important to upgrade these components within the vehicle in order to keep the car in balance. The three-legged stool analogy can be applied to the concept of vehicle balance. To obtain optimum performance, you need to combine handling control with stopping power as well as going power. You may want to consider the use of performance springs, torsion bars, struts, and/or shocks, along with front strut tower braces, so as to always keep your suspension members in touch with Mother Earth in all competitive conditions. The calipers, brake pads, and brake rotors of your Porsche should be upgraded as part of the stages of the mapped DME chips in order to keep their stopping power matched to the selected go power.


Make your power stronger

As a result of using Porsche 911 performance parts with exhausts, you will be able to gain more horsepower and torque. There is a reduction in the time it takes to get from zero to sixty in play, faster exit speeds, and faster top speeds in competition due to better acceleration. Among the Porsche 911 Turbo performance parts we offer, there are a number of cold air intakes, carbon fiber air intakes, catback exhausts, turbo back exhausts, stainless steel exhausts, downpipes, intercoolers, silicone hoses, catch can kits, and many other pieces that we offer.

You will find that there are a number of options, products, and services available out there that have a proven record of success. By adding bolt-on upgrades to the vehicle, owners will be able to customize their own unique performance niche, depending on how deep their pockets are and what level of expectations they have.

An important thing that differentiates a mod from another is its purpose. Depending on the model of Porsche you have, there are a number of modifications you can make. In order to make your car sound loud and cool, what does it mean when you pull your car with your friends on a neighborhood road? 

As soon as you glance over the mods you've added to your Porsche to give you a case of the wow feeling, you know you're in control. As do most customers and other Porsche drivers, you feel the pride of belonging to such a special family, just as most of our customers do as well. There is something special about this place where we enjoy playing with our cars and enjoying the power they have to offer.
