I have a 996 C2 and was wondering if anyone has added a turbo or supercharger to one. I can't afford a factory turbo, but would like to add some performance to it. I am actually disappointed with the acceleration (new: $73,000). I have to say my friends Mazda 6 (new: $21,000) is faster at 0 to 80 and they don't cost near what a Porsche does. I will say the 911 will out handle the Mazda, but there are allot faster cars out there for a whole lot less money!

turbo. check the twin turbo set up on Boochook's c4s, and see if that would fit your C2. Burk, are you seeing this....?

The issue with these kits is that most cost $10,000-$12,000 installed With the cost of 996TT these days you may be able to buy one for the cost of a 996 with the mods.

Vivid racing recently had a special on the Supercharger kit for about $7,000 plus installation

In order to make most efficient use of forced induction the base/native engine compression should (MUST..?) be reduced from what would otherwise be optimal, 10:1 (12:1 w/DFI)base 7-8:1 (9-10:1 w/DFI). That results in fairly serious reduction in FE the 98% of time you spend "off-boost", simply cruising along. It seems to me that the best way to add boost at the rare times of need, or desire, would be a small bottle/tank of LOX.

Our atmosphere is only 20% oxygen so adding another 20% of CHILLED oxygen would DOUBLE your engine's HP output.

I would stop and think long and hard before taking an engine with the M96’s reputation and taking it from a normally aspirated configuration and adding an aftermarket blower or turbo……………. There are many reasons Porsche developed and entirely different engine to run with a turbo………..all of which you are likely to discover if you go this route………..

I supercharged my car (2000 c2, vf supercharger) when it had 18,000 miles on it. It now has 59,000 on it and 30+ track days in the last 3 yrs.

I'm running 7.7lbs of boost and have no problems. I've driven to WGI (6hr drive) several itmes in 98 degree heat, tracked the car for 2 days

and driven home right off the track with no problems. It gets about 30mpg at about 70mph. So far so good. How long the fun lasts is another question.

Sorry, but your boost gage MUST be lying.
