Alex, I have to say your run figures are rather interesting... You have the advantage of the PDK and launch control that gives you a better 0-100 than mine. In my case, my car continues to burn rubber till mid range of 2nd gear...
On the other hand, the PDK as far as I know doesn't provide the same horsepower as the manual... in terms of numbers yours produce less HP yet it's faster in acceleration than MT.
You can switch to Hi Boost on the Greddy to reach your desired 0.4 bar. But it's advised to use racing fuel for it.
I guess the bottom line isn't how many horsepowers can you reach, or how much boost can you run rather than how much of that can your car put to the ground.
Forget the numbers and go unleash your beast to mark its territory
mine has no option to change the boost pressure anywhere
How do you read the boost without the Greddy? I'm curious. I don't think the 987.2 can display it on the dashboard, right?

Thank you for the compliment... but I'm afraid without 4WD none of us can put the power right to the ground on a straight line. We can be a threat to our own Porsche bloodline or the retired generations of Italian rivals... but to the latest super cars, I wish!
Foes will show up down the streets from time to time for you to test them but your main enemy will always be your own... be safe Alex and God bless you.
Re: PBox/Drift Box/Gtech Readings for TPC Turbo Products
i have exchanged the SC clock and installed a boost pressure indicator instead - the boost comes with a direct line from the turbo - so easy straight forward install
hmmm i am a little puzzled by your comments though - since i remember myself reading about you going on 458 italia bait seek :-)
also, i know of people here in germany who tuned their 996 turbo to a 600 hp and even took OUT the 4wd and they DO get the power on the street - my "issue" isn't really grip related too - since from 100-200 i do not have any grip issues at all looking at the dash
i will check the dyne soon see what figures the car does deliver - thanks for your wishes habib and same to you or in fact to anyone ;-)
I remember in the early days when one needed big balls for a turbo Cayman. Then I raised the bar with 3.7L adding sheer madness to the equation. Days went by and more people started turbo charging their toys and others went forward blowing 'absolutely reliable' engines just to get them enlarged and charged.
I should've raised the bar high since the beginning...
Now that's how you fix the speed on your Porsche's Auto-Cruise Control !
