I think the problem, and by problem, I mean why it's taking so long is because PSE is almost straight through plumbing. If you want it louder you most likely have to go with different cats which not everyone will be excited about. The car has been out for almost 1 year and the "upgraded" versions we've seen from Techart, Tubi, etc aren't IMHO materially different from PSE. Fabspeed is better than those but again that's because of changing the cats.

So Josh - you will basically tell us (1) the intercoolers are to small (2) the exhaust is restrictive (3) the airflow in can be improved, perhaps by adding CAI or filter xyz (4) and Porsche left X on the table

so...........

you'll offer new intercoolers, new exhaust and "improve" the input air flow, you may offer new bigger and better turbos - will you offer a tune, specific to these mods. What will this mean for an owners warranty, will they be able to extend the warranty etc............

How about fuel delivery, ooops its a DFI engine so you can't increase the fuel flow via new pump and injectors...........

what sort of dyno do you use to verify the "before" and "after" improvements.......is it, per chance a Maha MSR500/1000, a dyno used by Porsche for some very good reasons.......

What is your strategy to genuinely and safely improve performance other than by increasing boost, advancing timing and fiddling with the AFR? Do you have unfettered access to the code within the ECU

If you own an a S, why wouldn't you simply add the Porsche kit.......after all they may know something........particularly with regard to the highly variable fuel quality in the US.

By far and away the best modification is driver training .......it really is.......

Judging by the photos (thanks for those, BTW), it looks like driveway spark plug changes are now a thing of the past. I can now limit my search to CPO 991.1s.

Hey, Rand.

As of right now, exhausts (which are a straight swaps for cars equipped with PSE, and retain factory catalysts) are what's in motion. Since the factory emissions equipment is not tampered with, warranty should not be an issue. I can't comment on extended warranties. Yes, it's possible intercoolers and an intake could come in the future.

There has been no word from GIAC regarding a tune for the .2 as of yet.

Regarding the our in-house dyno -- it's a Mustang AWD-500-SE

What do you guys correct your Mustang to? Reads as high if not higher than a Dynojet.
