The only phrase that comes to mind is that we are “balls deep” in the R&D process of aftermarket performance parts for the Porsche 991 Turbo. We have completed the exhaust system with high flow catalytic converters and thought we would do a sneak peak sound clip. The exhaust system, as described here in our

Our Ford Focus ST project car is 1 year old and with under 3000 miles, she is barely broken in.  With the Agency Power widebody flares, 19 inch Niche 3-piece wheels, Agency Power full power upgrades, and a Cobb Accessport tune, this car is dialed.  But with all this perfection, it is missing 1 thing…

The Panamera Turbo is by far the BEST sedan I have ever owned for its function and form.  The 500HP monster does ok with a couple bolt-on parts.  But like all other Porsche Turbos, it would benefit from a ECU tune.  Annnnddddd…. the beat stops.  You cannot OBDII flash the Panamera Siemens SDI6 ECU.  It

This is definitely one of the coolest products ever and of course the suspension genius group at KW Suspension is behind it. We have been huge advocates of the KW coilovers for street and track applications for some time. But when they are not winning races, they keep daily drivers styled. Their DLC suspension kit
