1. Will I need to upgrade the fueling system to provide adequate fuel flow for the turbo kit?
In order to provide adequate fueling for TPC Racing Cayman/Boxster S Turbo Kit, the OEM injectors are replaced with uprated motorsports injectors. No other modifications to the fueling system is necessary.
2. How do I tune the turbo kit once it is installed?
TPC Racing Turbo Kits come standard with ECU Tuning included, so NO additional tuning systems are required. Once your ECU has been tuned by TPC Racing, it is a simple plug and play installation, and you are ready to go!
3. Are there any additional parts/hardware necessary for the complete installation of this kit?
The TPC Racing Stage 1 986/987 Turbo Kit comes with everything needed to perform a complete installation!
4. What models Cayman/Boxster will this kit fit on?
The TPC Racing Stage 1 986/987 Cayman/Boxster Turbo Kit can be installed on ANY 986/987.1 model Cayman/Boxster. Models equipped with Tiptronic transmission will require modification of the transmission mounts as well as relocation of the transmission oil cooler.
5. I have a vehicle with a built/swapped motor; can this kit be installed?
All vehicles with built/swapped motors are considered "special projects" as they usually entail more than just a simple installation of the turbo system. All "special projects" must be discussed with TPC Racing's engineering department.
6. Can TPC Racing Turbo Kits be shipped internationally?
YES! TPC Racing Turbo Kits and other products can be shipped to almost any country around the world! (shipping charges will vary depending on location)
7. Will my vehicle need any other upgrades (brakes/suspension/drivetrain/etc.) in order to handle the added power?
There are no other upgrades REQUIRED to handle the power of the Cayman/Boxster Turbo Kit. However, before installing any aftermarket high performance vehicle modification, you should make sure that all vehicle systems/components are in proper operating condition.
The only component that can see increased wear because of the additional power is the clutch/disc/flywheel assembly. This is very dependent on the driving style of the vehicle owner. However, good condition factory units can withstand the added power of the turbo kit for standard street applications. When the OEM components do require replacement due to age/wear, we have both OEM and aftermarket upgrade options for the clutch and flywheel.
While not necessary, we, at TPC Racing, also produce a long line of suspension/drivetrain/brake upgrades that will compliment your turbo setup, and help you to create s true budget supercar!
8. Are there any special maintenance procedures?
As with all high performance vehicles, regular maintenance must be performed to help ensure the longevity and proper operation of all engine and turbo kit components. Oil changes must be performed every 3000miles, or once a year, whichever comes first. For those who drive more aggressively or use their vehicles on track, oil changes should be done more frequently based on how hard you drive.
9. Will the turbo upgrade void my factory warranty?
As with any aftermarket high performance engine modification, the TPC Racing Cayman/Boxster Turbo Kit will void your engine's factory warranty. The rest of the vehicle will remain unaffected.
10. Can I use my aftermarket/stock exhaust in conjunction with a TPC Racing Turbo Kit?
NO! All TPC Racing Turbo Kits come with a full stainless steel exhaust system, specifically designed and engineered to work with the rest of the components of the TPC Racing Turbo Kit. There are no aftermarket/stock exhaust systems that are compatible with a TPC Racing Turbo Kit. This is because when an aftermarket turbocharger system is added to a vehicle, the standard exhaust layout often times will not allow for integration of the turbocharger and related components.
*500BHP only available on vehicles equipped with the 3.4L engine, the TPC Racing Stage 2 987 Turbo Kit, and the TPC Racing 987 S3 Upgrade Package.
** - All WHP(wheel horsepower) figures are determined using a Dynojet Reseach Inc., 224x RWD dynomometer. All BHP(crank/brake horsepower) figures are estimated.
