The 992 Carrera has brought a revised engine from it's 991.2 predecessor. This modular high-tech engine architecture provides easy power enhancement through some basic bolt-on modifications and a proper tuning calibration. With several years of experience installing, testing, developing and tuning this platform, Flat 6 Motorsports has developed a 992 Carrera Power Kit Program. No matter if you're looking for a modest bump or a transformation in power delivery, we have proven solutions that maintain OEM-levels of reliability and daily driving compliance.
PORSCHE'S 3.0L ENGINE
Developed for Power
The 9A2 EVO engine featured in all 992 Carrera is a robust power plant built for power. Mechanically, the engines are the same across the base, S and GTS models. The aluminum alloy block is lightweight but strengthen via 150 micron iron coated cylinder liners that utilize plasma wire transfer arc technology. Porsche integrated a forged crankshaft, rods and pistons providing a significantly stronger rotating assembly that is capable of handling higher levels of boost pressure. The S and GTS share a slightly larger turbo and raise boost pressure to deliver more power output.
|Model||Turbine Size||Compressor Size||Peak Boost|
|Base / T||49 MM||45 MM||12 PSI|
|S / GTS||55 MM||48 MM||16 PSI / 18.6 PSI|
POWER KITS / IN DEPTH
Our Stage 1 Kit is capable of delivering 480HP on the 992 Base Carrera or 600 HP on the S or GTS. This is the simplest and easiest way to increase power. We leverage the M-Engineering M-Tuner Suite to install a new tuning calibration to your Turbo. The tuning suite relies on PC software and programs via the OBD-II port. The Stage 1 map transforms the 992 Carrera to a different beast. ECU tuning is a very safe and easy way for Carrera owners to increase power output and requires no additional hardware modifications. Additional power can be obtained by adding bolt-on modifications.
Our Stage 2 Kit is capable of delivering 505HP on the 992 Base Carrera and 615HP on the S/GTS. This is a simple extension of the Stage 1 Power Kit but focuses on increasing airflow and air velocity in and out of the motor for improved power output. These simple modifications help the engine breath better, sort of like taking an N95 mask off after wearing one. It also improves the turbo response and improves the overall sound of the Carrera. We leverage BMC High Flow Air Filters. Porsche utilizes the BMC High Flow Air Filters on the 991 GT3 RS and 918 models from the factory. Their more efficient filter media promote higher airflow into the engine. An optional modification is the IPD Plenum which helps promote higher air velocity to the engine and can enhance power further.
On the exit of the turbo, we replace the factory link pipe that integrates a very dense and restrictive catalyst with a higher flowing design. This not only increases exhaust flow but it allows heat to extract off the turbochargers. These upgraded link pipes have a few options and considerations but reduce weight while increasing power and sound. With this change, you'll experience some more cracks and aggressive tones from the exhaust (particularly in sport/sport plus mode) without introducing resonance or drone to the cabin. If you are looking to enhance power a little more while adding more sound, we also offer a variety of muffler sections which provide an enhanced driving experience.
Our Stage 3 Kit includes is for the Base Carrera only. This is a S/GTS conversion kit leveraging OEM turbos and the M-Engineering Stage 1 calibration designed for the S/GTS turbochargers. This is a direct factory replacement of the Base turbochargers. Simply remove, replace and load the tuned file.
Our Stage 3+ Kit builds on the Stage 3 kit for the Carrera or Stage 2 kit for the S/GTS by adding the Flat 6 Motorsports Water/Meth Injection Kit. This dual nozzle kit will ensure proper injection and atomization to aid in effective octane enhancement and lower IATs. Water/Meth can increase effective octane content by 25 points and make more power efficiently with a cooler running motor. It also seamlessly integrates to the car for an OEM level of fit/finish.
Our Stage 4 Kit builds on many of the same modifications of the Stage 2/3 formula but the turbochargers are swapped for upgraded units from Pure Turbos. These upgraded turbos utilize a factory housing, so these bolt up the same way and reuse all of the OEM components making it a straightforward install. The upgraded turbochargers are machined out and the turbine and compressor wheel cartridges are replaced with larger units that are CNC-machined out of aerospace grade billet aluminum. These units improve the strength and durability of the turbos while promoting higher flow. These turbos will make more power than the factory turbos because of the sizing and wheel designs. The benefit of reusing the factory housing is you maintain very similar turbo spooling characteristic. So turbo lag is similar to the vehicle stock but the flow rate on the turbos allow for substantial power increases.
For our Stage 4 Power Kit, we require the CSF Intercooler. This intercooler features more tubes and fin density compared to the OEM intercooler and allows for better heat dissipation which lowers the Intake Air Temperatures (IATs). This helps stabilize the intake charge temps making more power at greater efficiency. With larger turbos the additional cooling to the vehicle is necessary to maintain high reliability for long term use.
We also recommend utilizing the Pressure Hose Kit and Turbo Inlets from Do88 to help optimize air flow.
Tying this all together, we partner with M-Engineering, the most experienced and leading tuning calibrator for the 992 chassis. With years of co-development on many builds, the tuning will bring the full potential of this set-up to fruition while maintaining high-reliability and daily driving capability. We recommend utilizing the M-Engineering PDK tune as well to help optimize the transmission for the higher power output. This tune will sharpen the driving experience and reduce shift times out of the already impressive PDK dual clutch transmission. Our Stage 4 Power Kit delivers extremely impressive power output while maintaining high reliability and a daily drivable experience.
Our Stage 4+ Kit builds on the Stage 4 kit by adding the Flat 6 Motorsports Water/Meth Injection Kit. This dual nozzle kit will ensure proper injection and atomization to aid in effective octane enhancement and lower IATs. Water/Meth can increase effective octane content by 25 points and make more power efficiently with a cooler running motor. It also seamlessly integrates to the car for an OEM level of fit/finish. While there are some opportunities to increase power further, we recommend exercising restraint with the power levels to preserve the reliability of the PDK transmission.
