Having entered the Porsche tuning world in a Porsche 996 Carrera, Vivid Racing needed to go back to the beginning and develop something that would truly take the experience of owning a 996 to the next level. They set out with 3 main goals for the project: Top quality products, strong reliable performance, and a product price point that made sense.
After six months of R&D, software development and testing, the kit is finally ready for release. The kit is sold as a “complete package” and requires no additional components. Recommended installation time is about 25-30 hours and is recommended to be performed by a qualified, competent performance installation center. Turbo Kits are only available for purchase from Vivid Racing and all products carry a limited liability warranty.
Here is what Vivid Racing said about Turbosmart products used in the kit:
Boost can be controlled by either the wastegate spring or a boost controller. For these 2 parts, we have decided to use the Turbosmart products. The Turbosmart Comp-Gate40 wastegate is smaller then the competition’s unit while still offering superior flow and heat handling.
It is 25% smaller then other units and can be setup in multiple configurations. The wastegate features only a 3psi spring so if desired, this is the minimum amount of boost the car would run.
To achieve the 5.5psi we want for the turbo kit, we use Turbosmart’s e-Boost STREET boost controller. The boost controller allows you to dial in the boost pressure you want with several variables. You can also set a high and low boost pressure for pump or race gas. Its digital display tells you exactly what boost you are making in real time.
