AWE Tuning set a goal for the 997.2TT 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 achieved our power targets in a daily drivable, bolt-on package, unrivaled in the industry.
As tested, the AWE Tuning Porsche 997.2TT 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.
The AWE Tuning Porsche 997.2TT 750R Package includes:
- 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
- Sachs Racing Stage 2 Clutch Kit
- Proprietary G.I.A.C. Software with Handheld Switching Feature
Proprietary G.I.A.C. Software
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.
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
- Current 997TT G.I.A.C. owners: contact us for trade-in discounts.
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 997.2TT turbo kit in the world that can boast such technology!
The magic behind the power
At the heart of the powerful AWE Tuning 997.2TT 750R Package is a pair of AWE Tuning VTG Turbos, developed in a joint venture between AWE Tuning and BorgWarner, the manufacturer of the OEM 997.2TT turbos. The AWE Tuning VTG Turbos maintain Porsche's VTG technology and are a direct plug-and-play application. Whereas the stock compressor wheels are cast aluminum, the AWE Tuning VTG 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 software tuning as a technical partner of G.I.A.C. demonstrates that a freer flowing muffler was mandatory for this power level. Our AWE Tuning Porsche 997.2TT Performance Exhaust System not only maximizes power, but also sweetens the sound of the 997.2TT'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 dual bullet style mufflers 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. The AWE Tuning Porsche 997.2TT Performance Headers have been extensively tested on both the street and track, proving themselves to be the finest headers available.
Keeping it cool
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. The AWE Tuning 997.2TT Performance Intercoolers feature cast end tanks that were designed in house using CAD and CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) software. The AWE Tuning 997.2 Performance 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.

Turbo units sold as rebuild exchange with your original turbos. Please contact us for pricing on brand new turbos if you wish to keep your original turbos unmodified.
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 an exchange basis. This deposit is for specially made shipping containers that we will send you in which to send us back your turbos for re-manufacturing. Once we have received back these cases, the deposit will be refunded.
Please note: Due to the use of high flow catalytic converters, this exhaust is legal only for off road usage. In closing This kit is the best of all worlds truly supercar performance with daily-driving manners.
