23hp gain at the wheels? I know nothing about that motor but that wouldn't seem to be a tough goal.

I'm sure some people over at Rennlist could help big time.

Yeah the dynos and actual proof that parts make HP seem to be very lacking on Planet9. I should spend more time on Rennlist. I still would really like the Fabspeed Race exhaust which makes power:

It is full exhaust in that it mates up to the headers. There is a cat in the header, and a cat in the exhaust. This exhaust removes the cat in the exhaust.

Sounds like a Porsche technician to me. The factory knows best. I definitely won't be throwing any money away as I do my research, and if a part doesn't make power then it won't go on my car.

With the variability between different dynos, and on the same dynos given different settings, not sure how much you can read into any drivetrain loss. I'm no expert though.

Have to say, your Cayman R is absolutely -worthy. At the price-point, I can't think of any car I'd want more than a Cayman R - I'd take mine in Peridot though.

Looking forward to seeing your progress with mods, GT3 eater to-be?

not to sound sarcastic, but porsche does know best. they spend millions on R&D. their research facility does a lot of work for other car manufacturers too.

most after market stuff makes things worse and cause problems. if its all about sound, then go for it
