:burnout: Eight months and have dropped around 15K so far. I think 5K in the next year would be a modest estimate.
You should show some of your mods here or even do an article or two for our Cayenne section which needs some articles. I'm sure our members would appreciate it greatly!

I wish I had the time to but unfortunately I don't.... If I did I'd have at least 50-tech articals between the two Pcars I own.... :)

I'm not modifying any more than I have with that Escort radar detector. These cars will be collector's items someday--especially since the Big O will make it illegal to import them after 2015. I love it the way it was made. Other than wheel & tire sets, this is it.

OK, this forum has made me a liar at least twice:

First, I totally knocked Porsche making an SUV and what do I own? Not a Cayman but a Cayenne Turbo.

Second, after blowing my wad totally on my third set of wheels & tires [20's for summer streets, 18's for winter below 40 degrees Farenheit, and 18's for off-road summer fun], I found myself going from looking at changing my own oil to save some change to the performance goodies that are out there for my CT.

So, I have been evaluating what mods I might like. Certainly, anything that increases fuel efficiency I must have--and excuse.

Therefore, put me down as comtemplating.

It looks like one could dump easily $6,600 into increasing power. However, the sweet spot may be half that.

It appears upgrading to the TurboS intercoolers may take $3,300. However, that'd be nothing without a combination of intake and exhaust upgrades.

So where is the option for "all in"?:eek:

Does anyone have the dimensions of the stoxk turbo vs turbo s intercoolers. It should cost much less to just have custom unit a made off those spec or bigger. We have done this door several other turbo cars in the past. I would be a nice set up could be had fro under a grand not including any upgraded shrouds.

I voted 500-999, but I have to admit it's not performance orientated. I'm spending my money on a combination of a Yakima hitch style bike rack and Thule load-assisted kayak roof racks.

EDIT: Should have voted for the $1000-$2999...darn racks/carriers are expensive ;)

I voted 1000-3000$. Im waiting for a 2011 cayenne turbo, all of it performance focused, pair of K&N intakes or bmc when I just got it. and in a year or so the ECU remapped will be a nice 40+hp extra I will add.

I voted above $4,999 just because it is so much more expensive to do in Europe (not to mention the 21% VAT).

Plan is for a Carnewal GT Exhaust with 200 cell race cats, H&R lowering springs and thicker sway bars (Cayman R's if I can get my hands on them).

Just don't mention any of this to my wife....;)

She thought the madness would END with the Cayman....:hilarious:

I voted $0 for mods.

I rather spend the money on the Cayman, or Maserati ;)

But honestly, I LOVE my Cayenne Turbo S the way it is.

But if I had to change something, it may be the rims....

I have had my 2011 Base Cayenne for 1 year now and have only added clear side markers, rubber mats and the rear truck protector. I ordered the truck the way i wanted it and am going to leave it it the way it came. I said $1- $499. My Cayman R is another story i will do some modding on that.

Mine might have been loaded on a ship today but already have clear side markers. Head light and paint protection will be next. Still have to decide which aftermarket 20” rims to get and study which diesel tuning box might work better.

I will send about $1000 on mods on my 2006 Cayenne S
and about $500 on maintenance, I am thinking about all new coils this year, since I just bought plugs to install in the Spring 2014

I would spend more, but have other cars and hobbies.... ;)

I use my 2014 Cayenne diesel to commute to work. Drive about 250 km/day. Not cost effective to spend a bunch of money on performance given that I also spend about $800-1000 / month on fuel.

I voted 1000-2999 for my 06 CTT. I ordered K&N filters ($80), just in the process of getting Scott at Softronic to write me a remap ($1000), $150 on a new stereo, $500 for winter rims, $130 for new diverter valves, $20 for a muffler mod. Holy hell, I think I should have put a larger amount. I still need to do a cat delete and buy winter tires.
