2013 Porsche 911 gets faster with Exclusive performance
As if the 2013 Porsche 911 wasn’t fast enough before, Porsche Exclusive has released details of a new Power enhancement kit for the 2013 911 Carrera S that bumps up the horsepower of the 3.8-liter boxer engine from 400 horsepower to 430. In stock trim, the Carrera S is an impressive sports car, but Porsche seems to always leave room for improvement. The new Powerkit that is being offered is more than just a few bolt-on intake and exhaust items and the factory upgrades are fairly extensive.
Extensive changes to the engine
Starting with the engine, Porsche has increased the 3.8-liter engine’s ability to breathe by redesigning the cylinder heads and camshaft for greater volume of air and longer lift of the valves. Any tuner knows this is the first place to start if you want to increase horsepower. Along with the mechanical changes, Porsche also made modifications to the electronic engine management system to maximize the engines new capabilities. The combination of the two gives the boxer engine a seven percent increase in power.
