The K16/16G Turbo Upgrade is a very convenient and popular turbo upgrade for the 996 Turbo. We have included the basic price for the upgrade here if you mail in your turbos for modification. Below is a selection of modifications you can choose from to build your vehicle with some or all of the performance parts you need to complete your 996 Turbo.
Vivid Racing offers a upgrade for the stock K16 turbos that come on the 01-05 996 Turbo. This upgrade commonly known as the K16/16G uses stock turbochargers that are modified. This also includes modified wastegate actuators and priced for the pair of original turbos. Ordering this requires that you send in your factory turbos to be modified. Some times we do have cores instock ready to ship in which we will charge a core charge to be refunded once your factory turbos are returned in good working order.
If you are looking to keep the quick spool of your stock turbos and squeeze a little more power from the K16's, Then this upgrade is for you! The factory turbine wheel moves about 30lbs/min. With the 16G wheel upgrade, you will see a gain of about 10lbs/min. This gives you a much stronger mid to top end power gain. Depending on boost settings, fuel components, tuning, bolt-ons, etc, this upgrade would increase the power output of your stock Porsche 996 Turbo K16's by about 60-80 crank horsepower. To maximize this turbo upgrade, it is recommended to have your car tuned and to upgrade your fuel system with a 5bar fuel pressure regulator or a set of 60lb injectors with the stock 3.8bar FPR.
These turbos with corresponding parts make about 500 all wheel horsepower on our Mustang Dyno. A stock 996 Turbo on our dyno does about 340whp. With a basic tune and exhaust we see 410whp. The Mustang dyno typically shows a 20-25% drive train loss from flywheel numbers. 600HP to the crank is equivalent to about 480-500whp which is nearly 160HP over stock.
Please contact us first before shipping any products. Once we receive the turbos, we will modify them to the K16/16G level and clean up your stock turbos to be like new. All upgraded turbos include new 1.0bar wastegate actuators. This process is about 7-10 business 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.
