IPD Intake Plenum (991 Turbo)
Designed to Fit:
- 2014 - 2016 Porsche 911 Turbo (991.1)
- 2017 - 2019 Porsche 911 Turbo (991.2)
Note - Please select option for 991.1 or 911.2 based on your model year
The incredible 991 Porsche Turbo received a completely redesigned exterior but the engine remained virtually identical to the previous model 997.2 Turbo. This latest Turbo is the most powerful, revolutionary and capable Porsche Turbo to ever come out of Stuttgart. This latest generation Turbo engine, titled the 9A1, delivers 520 HP (560 HP with the "S") and once again, raises the proverbial performance bar in the sports car world.
The new 991 IPD Intake Plenum is nearly identical to the previous 997.2 Turbo Plenums. The new Porsche intake plenum is offered in one single 74mm version which utilizes the factory 74mm throttle body. The 991 Turbo intake manifolds are smaller than the 997.1 Turbo manifolds which is great for improved boost response and gas mileage but less than ideal for making substantial power gains. The 74mm TB provides more than adequate flow for these more restrictive intake runners eliminating the need for a larger 82mm "Competition" version.
The already explosive power of the 991 Turbo can be further increased with the new 991 Turbo IPD Intake Plenum. The patented IPD Plenum design works exceptionally well with all forced induction applications and the 991 Turbo is no exception. Power and torque increases provided by the IPD plenum are impressive and stay well above all factory power curves from launch to redline. Maximum power increases take place in the midrange where it's most needed, most critical and most enjoyed.
The Porsche 991 intake plenums deliver smooth and linear power with considerably quicker boost response creating a longer and more desirable power band. The Turbo plenums deliver reliable performance for both street and motorsport applications enhancing the already visceral Porsche Turbo driving experience.
The 991 Turbo requires an "adaptation" period that can be fully realized with either a series of hard pulls on the dyno or a series of spirited driving sessions, which of course IPD recommends only be performed on a closed course circuit. Installation of all Turbo Plenums is highly recommended to be performed by qualified and trained Porsche technicians.
IPD took delivery of its 991.2 Turbo S and the R & D started the second it arrived at its new home. The new IPD intake plenum doesn’t substantially benefit from any one particular upgrade, but the sum of its improvements deliver a superior overall Turbo compared to the already impressive 991.1 Turbo it replaces. Yes, we know the latest Turbo is faster with 20 more horsepower but it’s the combination of lightening shifts, razor sharp handling and spiritual connection to the vehicle that elevates the driving experience of the extraordinary new 991.2 Turbo.
Porsche made a number of substantial upgrades with the latest 991.2 Turbo. Engine improvements include revised intake ports, larger injectors, higher volume fuel pump, larger turbo compressor wheels and more efficient intercoolers, but the factory intake system remained relatively unchanged allowing the IPD Plenum and Y-Pipe to fit with only minor modifications.
The 991.2 Turbo Plenum upgrade delivers staggering engine power and torque gains that will raise the performance bar of the already potent supercar as well as the hairs on your neck. Horsepower gains are found throughout the entire power band with the bulk of the gains being realized between the 3500-5000 RPM range. Max power gains of 45+ wheel HP come in at 4300 RPM and hold strong all the way to redline. Torque is even more impressive at 60+ in the midrange with a massive torque gains from 3500-5000 RPM.
The 74mm IPD Turbo Plenum is also designed to perform with the higher flowing IPD “Y” Pipe.
About Innovative Pro Design (IPD)
Innovative Pro Design (IPD) was founded in 2004 by Mike "Turbo" Kirakosyan. The IPD Plenums were conceived, developed, tested, proven and manufactured in the heart of the Porsche Tuning capital, Southern California. The IPD plenums evolved from the age old hot rod philosophy of "never leave good enough alone". The genius behind the IPD Intake Plenums is not only the patented "Y" design but also the geometry of diversion areas, optimization of bore sizes and internal surface area manipulation.
Virtually all performance upgrades stem from man's innate and unstoppable quest for speed and power, and the IPD Plenums are no exception. Turbo Mike's "Need for Speed" is embedded in his DNA. His relentless pursuit of performance extends well beyond the Plenums. Mike is an accomplished fabricator, engine builder, tuner and all around Porsche expert.
