The Best Bolt on Performance Upgrades for Late Model Porsches

IPD logo

The all mighty 996 Turbo may be the perfect Porsche of them all to benefit from the IPD Plenum. Horsepower and torque gains are substantial and immediate (no adaptation required).

Horsepower improvements range from 30 to 35 and boost response improves considerably making for longer, stronger and of course more pleasurable power curves. The IPD Plenum develops horsepower throughout the entire power band, especially where it's needed most, from mid range to top end.

Installation of the 996 Turbo Plenum is very challenging and installation should only be performed by a seasoned and qualified Porsche technician.


996 Turbo Non-S/S/X50/GT2 3.6L 68mm IPD Plenum ('00-'05) | Part #96268

The 996 Turbo 68mm version is designed to function with the factory 68mm throttle body that was O.E. on all 996 factory Turbos. The 68mm Plenum delivers similar power as the larger 74mm competition Plenum.

Horsepower gains range from 30 to 35 above the stock power band  and initial boost response is improved. The IPD Plenum delivers more power and more torque giving the 996 Turbo a stronger mid range and top end.

The 68mm Plenum version is perfect for the Turbo customer looking to improve engine performance on both stock and moderately modified Turbos developing under 700 horsepower.

The IPD 996 Turbo Plenum will truly transform the already impressive Turbo performance. The Plenum should be the first performance upgrade installed on any Turbo. They deliver great power gains on all Turbos whether they are bone stock or highly modified.


996 Turbo Non-S/S/X50/GT2 3.6L Competition 74mm IPD Plenum ('00-'05)
 | Part #96274

The 996 Turbo 74mm “Competition” Plenum is designed to function with more seriously modified Turbos developing over 600+ horsepower. Although this 74mm application has been used with great success on a variety of Turbos ranging from mildly modified to 1000+ HP.

This application requires the larger 74mm Porsche throttle body (additional purchase required) and comes with additional hardware to complete the kit. This “Competition Turbo”  Plenum will help modified 996 Turbos realize maximum performance.

The increased air flow and air speed develop by the larger Plenum is designed to work with larger turbos, intercoolers, intake piping, high flow Y-Pipes and more aggressive software.

Horsepower gains start around 35 hp and deliver max power slightly higher in the rev range creating better top end performance without the drop in power experienced with the factory air distributor.

996 Turbo S /X50/GT2  “Push Through” Y-Pipe
| Part #96500 | $1895 | No Longer Available

This very unique and extreme modification was a joint venturebetween BBI Autosport and Innovative Pro Design. The “Push Through Y-Pipe” was a completely collaborative effort from initial prototype to final production. Countless design changes (both internally and externally) backed with extensive dyno and track testing have yielded the ultimate performance upgrade for the 996 Turbo customer looking to transform their Turbos from mild to wild.

The IPD 996 Turbo “Push Through Y-Pipe was designed for the hardcore Turbo enthusiast looking for substantial power and speed improvements. This Y-Pipe requires the larger 74mm IPD Plenum (Part #96274) and throttle body (although an even larger 82mm application is available).

The unique cast design has many advantages over other hand fabricated versions being one piece (no welds), allowing for improved and smoother transitions, optimized flow and diversion shaped areas (that cannot be accomplished with fabricated pipes) all functioning together to create improved and greater boost response, especially when running larger turbo.

This design flows incredible quantities of air at very high velocity for extremely modified Turbos developing 600 to 1000+ horsepower at the wheels. The IPD Push Through Y-Pipe works best when complimented with larger turbos, intercoolers and aggressive software. This Push Through Y-Pipe can help Turbos build massive horsepower capable of physics defying performance.

This set up utilizes a pressurized MAF sensor versus a conventional “draw through” sensor. This allows 996 Turbos to run a twin air filter set up creating shorter and more efficient paths that feed the turbos.

An additional 4 bungs are also cast into the Y-Pipe allowing customers the ability to drill and tap for added accessories such as methanol injection, boost gauges, etc.

For customers demanding the absolute most from the 996 Turbo we offer an even larger Push Through Y-Pipe package that employs the 997 Turbo intake manifolds allowing for the larger 82mm 997 Turbo. IPD Plenum (Part #97282) and upgraded 997 GT3 82mm throttle body. (Additional throttle body purchase required)

The CNC machining of a single aluminum cast piece creates an improved visual appeal typically found on OE components. These Y-Pipes can also be special ordered (for additional minimal charge) in custom powder coated colors and ceramic dispersement coatings or polished to customize your Turbo engine compartment.

Installation of the Push Through Y-Pipe is relatively straight forward but IPD strongly recommends installation be performed by a highly qualified Porsche technician.
