996 Turbo Plenum - The all but forgotten Tuner Friendly Turbo

996 Turbo Plenum thumbThe IPD Turbo Plenums all deliver substantial power and torque gains but the 996 Turbo Plenum might be the best of the Turbo Plenums. Both the 68mm (OE throttle body) and 74mm 996 Turbo Plenums deliver over 35 wheel HP and over 40 foot pounds of torque to the wheels. Boost response is dramatically improved and both power curves become more linear throughout the entire rev range. The 996 Turbo Plenums requires zero adaptation, just install, drive and hold on. The new generation of the 996 Turbo Plenums will also be dimpled on the interior surfaces for even further improved laminar flow. Bang for the buck, the IPD Turbo Plenums deliver more HP/$$$ than any other performance part available on the market today.

Jeff Zwart's 2014 Race to the Clouds

Pikes Peak 997 GT2 Cup 04 thumbThe Pikes Peak International Hill Climb is the second-oldest motorsports event in America (second only to the Indianapolis 500). First contested in 1916, this year marked the 92nd running of the annual "Race to the Clouds." This 12.42-mile course with 156 turns is now fully paved making the GT3 Cup Car the perfect weapon for an assault against this unforgiving 14,114 foot monster of a mountain.

Zwart has won his class at Pikes Peak – all in Porsche Turbo street cars – in 1994, 1995, 1996, 1997, 1998, 2002 and 2004, setting new class records three times, before winning with the Porsche 911 GT3 Cup car in 2010. Jeff's 2013 effort to the top of the Pikes Peak was thwarted by mother natured when she delivered rain, hail and snow in the upper stages of his final climb relegating Jeff to a disappointing third place.
