    My wife tracks a BMW M235i, a very nice 330 hp car. Through Dinan, there is a clear upgrade path that could take it to 445 hp. On the Porsche side, I have never been able to find anything like this. You can get some hp by tuning; some by airflow, and of course better lap times with suspension...
