Vivid Racing;s VR700 horsepower kit for the Porsche 997 Turbo is designed to provide the ultimate in streetable performance. This kit was developed as the intermediate level to our VR630 and VR800 performance kits. The VR700 kit is based our the factory VTG turbochargers being upgraded. We take the factory VTG turbochargers and rebuild them with a new turbine wheel that flows almost 40cfm more then stock. The VR700 turbo kit put out a very strong 616awhp and 632ft/lbs of torque with the Mustang Dyno correction factor. Our test vehicle was a 2007 Porsche 997 Turbo Tiptronic. The car reached its final number using VP109 octane unleaded fuel at 1.3bar of boost. As tested on pump gas, the car still made an impressive 557awhp and 600ft/lbs of torque. With an ambient temperature of 92F in our dyno room, cooler temperatures and a 6speed transmission can only mean more horsepower!
To further the testing of our VR700 turbo kit, we immediately sent it off to run in the 2009 Gumball 3000 rally from LA to Miami. With 7 days of hard driving, 2 track events including a road course and drag strip, as well as high speed runs, this was an excellent test to put the car through beyond its dyno numbers. As vehicle owner Caleb Garrett stated, “The huge low end torque increase over my previous mods was very noticeable. When the turbos hit the car was a rocket pulling hard all the way to redline.” By retaining the VTG turbo setup, we are able to maintain fast spool up for those wanting a strong streetable setup. By not eliminating the VTG design, there is no need for changing oil lines, coolant lines, or other components found on a standard Garrett based turbocharger.
In order to achieve this performance increase, it is necessary have proper tuning of the Bosch ECU, exhaust components, and intercoolers. We use SoftronicTuning.com which is the only company that can remotely flash your ECU via the OBDII port. We have outlined the recommended products below that you can add as options to reach the VR700 performance.
To upgrade your VTG turbos, you will need to remove them from your vehicle and ship them to our Turbo Builder which we will supply you with the address and instructions. Please contact us first before shipping any products. Once we receive the turbos, we will modify them to the VR700 level. This process is about 7-10 days once they are received. You are responsible for shipping to and from. If you have any technical questions, consult one of our Porsche Specialists.
