|| IPD Plenum Applications
|If you want loads of power with one easy performance part, this IPD Plenum for your Porsche 997.1 Carrera is perfect for you! This IPD Plenum replaces your stock intake and easily bolts right up to your stock throttle body. Your stock intake is very inefficient; shaped like a T the air passing through hits a wall and slows down. With IPD's patented Y shape plenum the air is evenly cut, increasing air flow. The IPD ""Y"" design plenum replaces the factory ""T"" style air distributor and provides substantial power and torque gains by means of a more efficient design. Horsepower gains range from 24 to 28 depending on engine displacement and engine condition. These max power gains are experienced in the mid range where is it most useable and enjoyed.
The IPD plenum not only delivers impressive power and torque increases but also creates a more linear power and torque band. Tiptronic customers even claim considerable improvements with more positive shifting after installing the IPD Plenums.
All of the IPD ""Competition"" Plenums utilize the next largest size throttle body offered by Porsche. In this case, the Competition Carrera upgrades the factory OE 74mm throttle body with Porsche's 82mm 997 GT3 throttle body. All of our Competition Plenums are designed to perform with cars equipped with high performance exhaust systems. The more extensive the exhaust system (headers, kats and mufflers) the better. Optimizing air intake and exhaust together creates a balanced performance package that allows the engine to inhale and exhale more air thus creating more power and torque.
Power improvements will be fully realized once the factory ECU/DME makes all the necessary ""adaptation"" requirements. This process can be expedited with a series of ""hard pulls"" or spirited full throttle acceleration runs through the gears. Of course this should only be performed on a closed course circuit.
