    Just picked up my R51 Cayman.................

    I picked up my R51 engined Cayman S from Flat 6 Innovations yesterday.......and I thought my 3.8 was mean!!!!!!! This thing revs like NO other car I've driven. Throttle response is instant. It just screams for RPM. After they flash it. I bet it will give a GT4 a run for its money and if not for aerodynamics it would probably be a 200 mph car. Now for all the suspension parts I have stacked up. Can't say enough about the guys down at Flat 6 Innovations.....another mission accomplished. Now let's blur some dotted lines.

    What is the R51 engine, or is that a typo and it is X51?

    What's an R51? Nice website, but I can't find much information on what they do to the engine, or what the resulting specs are. Bummer for me - "49 state car"

    Holy moly!! I've long argued that more engine performance isn't necessary for me on the streets, and I enjoy revving my underpowered engine, but the sound of your car makes me want to throw caution to the wind. That thing sounds bonkers amazing!!! Can I ask approximately what kind of cost you're talking about for this thing?

    We pulled some base lines before it left F6I. We made a couple in the mid 320s. After I break it in for a bit Jake is gonna put a tune in it we are hoping for 360-80? We will see. It's a blast as it is. Just needs a little more RPM.

    I've recently talked to Jake and he recommended the R51 option for me, as i recently blew the engine at the track in my 08 boxster s.

    After having it a while what's you're impression? any track time?
