www.vividracing.com installs and tests the new TPC turbo Kit for the Porsche Cayman S. Adding 100-150HP at 5.5psi of Boost, this bolt-on turbo kit takes the Porsche Cayman to a completely new level.

Cayman TPC turbo @ 520bhp
So I just got my Cayman back from TPC with their latest tune up just the
day before the snow hit in the DC area. It was then locked up in the garage
for a week until I finally started to take her to work. Still it was cold
and not so nice.
Today it was finally sonny and I thought it was a good day to take her out,
take some pictures and video record the new Exhaust note etc.

The current engine modifications of my 2006 Cayman S:
TPC turbo ATP2
catless race header
customized, selectable ECU mappings for 93 and 100 octane
Boost controller 5.5 and 7psi.
Almost to exactly 3,000rpm the car sounds exactly the same as before and
you can cruise at about 73mph and not notice any modifications. The car
drives just like it always has. Push it past 3K and the car completely
changes, the Boost is still very
linear but much harder and never lets off well deep into 7K rpm. The Exhaust note changes radically, very
raspy, very angry really more pissed than anything.
The biggest difference to before is the throttle sensitivity.
