As tested, our 750R package will outrun a Ferrari 599, Porsche Carrera GT, or Murcielago LP 640 from 0-60 and also in the quarter mile. At full weight, on pump fuel, and on street tires. No tricks here. Just get in and drive.
AWE Tuning strives to develop performance products that enhance the driving experience with none of the ill effects that come from improper engineering. With this mindset, we set a goal for the 997TT platform and began working diligently: 700 Horsepower on pump fuel and 750 Horsepower on race fuel.
After almost two long years of research and development, we have achieved our power targets in a daily drivable, bolt-on package, unrivaled in the industry.
Highlights of this kit:
- High Flow AWE Tuning VTG Turbos
- AWE Tuning 997TT Muffler with German HJS Catalysts
- 321 Stainless Steel AWE Tuning 997TT Headers
- CAD/CFD Developed AWE Tuning 997TT Intercooler Kit
- Large Bore AWE Tuning 997TT Throttle Body
- Sachs Racing Stage 2 Clutch Kit (for 6sp cars)
- Proprietary G.I.A.C. Software with Handheld Switching Feature
Proprietary software developed jointly with G.I.A.C. ties our cutting edge hardware together into a complete package. Our G.I.A.C. software catapults our kit to world class status, and we are the only 997TT turbo kit in the world to feature the ability to switch between software programs on the fly.
By use of an elegantly simple handheld device, you can choose different power profiles. Did you fill up with high octane race fuel and want to unleash this kit's full 750hp potential? Plug the included handheld switcher into the port under the dash and push the race button. Are you leaving your car with a valet? Push the Valet button and you've instantly detuned the car to a mere 50hp! Concerned about security? Press the Kill button, and not even your own key will start the car until an alternate operational button is pushed. How about stock-like power levels for when you lend the car to a friend or are dropping it off for dealer work? Push the stock button and the car is back to showroom floor power levels. This is the ONLY 997TT turbo kit in the world that can boast such technology!
Included G.I.A.C. Software Programs:
- Premium Unleaded Pump Fuel (700hp)
- 100+ Octane Race Fuel (750hp)
Optional G.I.A.C. Software Programs:
- Valet (30 mph speed limiter)
- Ignition Kill Security (no start antitheft)
- Low Boost/Power

At the heart of this powerful kit is a pair of AWE Tuning VTG Turbos, developed in a joint venture between AWE Tuning and BorgWarner, who is the manufacturer of the OEM 997TT turbos. These turbos maintain Porsche's VTG technology and are a direct plug and play application. Whereas the stock compressor wheels are cast aluminum, our turbos utilize high flow compressor wheels CNC machined from high strength forged aluminum. Forged aluminum construction allows for safe operation at higher rotational speeds which these turbos see at full power.
Knowledge gained from doing software tuning as a technical partner of G.I.A.C. demonstrated that a freer flowing muffler was mandatory for this power level. Our not only maximizes power, but also sweetens the sound of the 997TT's flat six. Additionally, our system utilizes German made 200 cell high flow catalytic converters so your car can enjoy a horsepower increase without any Check Engine Lights. Our straight through design uses very advanced sound packaging materials and a single muffler enclosure that eliminates drone at cruising speeds.
During development of this kit it became quite apparent that the stock exhaust manifolds would not be up to the task of producing 700+ horsepower. We carefully studied the available space and used advanced CAD modeling to engineer primaries and secondaries that would deliver an excellent balance of quick turbo spool up and massive high rpm flow, as well as perfect fitment. Our have been extensively street and track tested and have proven themselves to be the finest headers available.
However, the combination of the increased boost from our VTG Turbos and increased flow from the headers proved to be too much for the stock intercoolers. We then set out to develop an intercooler system that would allow us to achieve our horsepower goals while keeping intake air temperatures within a safe range for the engine. Our feature cast end tanks that were designed in house using sophisticated CAD (Computer Aided Design) and CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) software. Our intercoolers are not only 37% larger (422 cubic inches vs 308 cubic inches) but they also drop air intake temperatures by 55 degrees Fahrenheit and improve pressure drop resistance through the core by 1 psi. Unlike other kits on the market, We designed our intercooler system to be a direct bolt in piece, meaning no permanent modifications need to be made to fit them to your car.
Despite our hardware improvements above, we were still falling slightly short of our intended power goals, and our engineers continued their investigation into optimizing air flow to the engine. After thorough research, a larger throttle body assembly was created which removed a bottle-neck that was hindering airflow into the combustion chambers. After various CAD revisions, our final design, incorporating a CNC machined Throttle Body adapter, is 10% larger than stock and allows for a significant improvement in power over the OEM part, which allowed us to finally achieve our power target.
Please note: use of our turbo kit requires a US spec aftermarket performance muffler to be fitted in order to keep turbo temperatures within a safe range. Our kit cannot be used with the stock or European market muffler due to their restrictive natures. Please also note that a $300 additional deposit is required when ordering the turbos on exchange basis. This deposit is for specially made shipping containers that we will send you in which to send us back your turbos for remanufacturing. Once we have received back these cases, the deposit will be refunded.
