The Porsche 991 Carrera is a great platform to tune up and gain extra performance out of it. Whether you are looking to take your Porsche 991 Carrera to the track or just have a faster better handling street car, Vivid Racing can help you out! A couple ways to really wake the 991 Carrera up and make it sound more sporty is with an exhaust system. There are 3 parts to the 991 Carrera and Carrera S. You have the headers, also called the exhaust manifolds, the side mufflers, and then the center muffler. The most effective modification in terms of the exhaust system is changing out the center muffler. The secondary mufflers do not change sound or performance much, while the headers have the biggest gain if you go catless, but will cause a check engine light to appear on your dash. Different center mufflers are available from companies like Agency Power, Fabspeed, Akrapovic, Borla, and others.
Like most cars if you are looking to get more throttle response and better air flow, doing a intake kit or replacement high flow air filters is an option. Utilizing the stock airbox, you can replace the factory paper filters with some BMC or K&N filters which will last you the life of the vehicle. Collecting more particulates while improving air flow, they make for a great upgrade. Also available by companies like Agency Power and Fabspeed are cold air intake kits. These feature a high flow intake pipe and different filter design than stock. In addition to the intake, you can also do a VR Tuned Auto Flash. The Auto Flash accesses ECU code via the central convenience system to not affect warranty. Improving shifting, throttle response, and engine torque, the Auto Flash is a great OBDII plug and play device to gain more power.
Other upgrades for the Porsche 991 Carrera can be done to the suspension, body, interior, brakes, and wheels. Upgraded suspension products such as springs can work with the factory PASM system to give you a lowered ride height and slight improvement in handling. Coilovers are better suited for spirited driving and someone that wants more adjustability. Sway bars are always a great option to keep the car flat in cornering. When it comes to brakes, the Porsche brakes are excellent, but you can always upgrade brake pads for better stopping power or go as far as 2 piece rotors and steel braided brake lines. Body kits and wheels are a personal preference but all of that is available through Vivid Racing to give you a full customized look.
