    TPC Racing Cayman Turbo transformed into a Stage 3 animal!

    As most members here are aware, the TPCicon Racing Cayman/Boxster Turbo Kit comes in 3 levels of performance. The Non-Intercooled "LP" Kit, the standard TPC Racing Cayman Turbo Kit, and the 550HP Stage 2 Upgrade. However once in a while, a customer demands more, much much more. Such is the case with this Cayman Turbo.

    This Cayman Turbo "Silver Bullet" initially left TPC less than a year ago with a pair of other Silver Bullets.

    However, it would seem that the werewolves down south require more than the standard Silver Bullet to be slain. So, in order to defeat these more powerful foes, our customer got his hands on a 357 Magnum....I mean a Garrett GT40 Family turbocharger(good for over 700HP). This should do the trick....








    In addition to the Garrett turbocharger upgrade, we also installed a compressor bypass valve, from a GT2. This is the first car we have installed/tested this setup on because of its enormous power potential, however we will soon be making this optional upgrade available to current/future Cayman Turbo drivers.

    Stock compression ratio on the engine? Bigger turbo cause any lag?

    700HP!? good April fools! Dear God.... That is BIG! Wow, what a beast. Does the psi stay the same around 5? I don't know much about turbos, but the bigger one won't have a negative effect on the compression in the engine?

    Re: TPC Racing Cayman Turbo transformed into a Stage 3 animal!

    Josh this is TREASON!

    Not only we (kit owners) were not aware of this, but posting such announcement before the weekend to keep us hanging on till Monday hurts. Now tell us the juicy stuff:

    1) Price to upgrade from stage 2 to stage 3 for my mistress. (you can PM me)
    2) Max. torque and horsepower obtained with dyno chart, please.
    3) Boost used.
    4) Fuel used.
    5) Acceleration 0-100km/hr & 0-200km/hr (yes it does matter with lots of Lamborghinis down the street)
    6) Minimum suspension & drivetrain mods required if any.
    7) fuel consumption (no I don't care about fuel cost, but I don't want to runout on the highway)
    8) Oil consumption.

    PS This is a repost as my earlier post in the morning got deleted by mistake!

    Re: TPC Racing Cayman Turbo transformed into a Stage 3 animal!

    The car will not produce 700hp. The turbo is good to "flow" 700hp. It will be running stock internals, but just as the Stage 2 turbo makes more power than the stage 1 at comparable boost levels, the more dense/cooler air from a larger turbine will be effective here as well.

    Should be interesting to say the least. Josh will keep everyone updated on this one.

    Wouldn't this car be prone to heat soak? It has to dissipate a lot of heat to operate for any lengh of time.

    In order to handle 700 HP at track without noticeable turbo lag, what are the things should be upgraded? Engine rebuild, LSD? What else is recommended/ required? Twin turbo setup VS single big turbo?

    Re: TPC Racing Cayman Turbo transformed into a Stage 3 animal!

    ^ As per what I understood from Casey, the kit "can" handle 700hp... but it cannot deliver it. Therefore, I am not sure what's the use of this kit.

    You misunderstood him. That turbo can product up to 700hp in the cayman according to Casey. It WILL delivery. I don't doubt that. What Casey said is the stock engine internal can not / is not recommend to run that much boost / power.
    But my question is, if I want to run THAT much power on top, what do I need to upgrade to the engine, tranny, rear diff, etc. in realist.

    Re: TPC Racing Cayman Turbo transformed into a Stage 3 animal!

    You guys aren't paying attention. That large of a turbo is capable of flowing enough air to produce 700hp in a car. Different sized turbos have a limit to how much air they can flow to produce the power in whatever car they are placed on. They car will not produce 700hp because they won't be maxing out the turbo but if the owner ever wanted to make 700hp, then he would not need to buy a bigger turbo, just have other mods to support it.

    Re: TPC Racing Cayman Turbo transformed into a Stage 3 animal!

    I don’t really want to rebuild my engine to make it a 3.7 and I would never use the octane mapping that comes with the Stage 2 larger turbo so the GT40 kit looks interesting. Any news on the package?

    Re: TPC Racing Cayman Turbo transformed into a Stage 3 animal!

    The car made around 550 to 570HP depending on the settings and the customer was very happy. He has wanted even more power and more track time so has moved on to a GT2 that we have prepared for track use.
