Default Car Fix TV Show claims 9 second turbo s...

I love these guys, but the 991 turbo s runs a 10.3 from the factory???

Wth did these guys do wrong to this to slow it down to a 10.9 quarter mile after all the, "upgrades"?????

Did anyone else watch this show yet on Motortrend this weekend?

Very disappointed after seeing Cobb Tuning, Fabspeed, and IPD products installed only to make the factory Turbo S slower than OEM!

I'm a average driver at best and can break 11 seconds after multiple runs?

Your thoughts please??? What happened here???

Mismatched turbos and a mismatched tune has caused a ton of disappointments on other platforms. Slow spool, etc etc.

I was super disappointed to see this. Someone took my intercoolers and machined their logo on them. Then created their own set-up, "tuned it" and did very poorly. I had a few friends guys at the track that evening including a client that ran 9. We were scratching out heads. Lot's of misinformation out there unfortunately.

Very low blow to rebadge someone’s product.

More than a low blow. It's actually a trademark violation, esp. when their doing so hurts the owner of the mark. You might want to talk with your lawyer....

I saw this. You should reach out to the crew and help them get it right.

Saw the show, what a disaster and waste of money. Ran slower than stock. That’s why I just do a basic tune and exhaust. No need for all that nonsense.

I remember years ago watching somebody attempt to upgrade their 911 Turbo with intercoolers exhaust tune etc. After everything they went back to the dyno and made LESS power. This in combination with what others have said have left me inclined to leave mine stock.

If y'all are referring to the black guy in the black TTS from the above video (Drag Times), He had an intercooler boot blow off and that's why it ran so slow.

I didn't see the Car Fix TV thing but if they filmed it at that track and it was the black TTS, that's what I heard happened. He just didn't make any excuses to Brooks in the Drag Times vid.
