The flow numbers given will support a fantastic ammount of HP, but at RPMs that the Porsche will not operate at. I would suggest picking your max RPM eg 8500 and work backwards. IE cut the lift back until you start to see a decrease in HP. You will be amazed at how low a lift you can live with and give up nothing. The only other way to actually utilize all that air is to increase displacement.

an analogy. If you have 3 horses that want to leave the barn at the same time, you give them 3 doors for mininum exit time. If you add 5 more doors, you still end up with 3 horses, no more. And consequently you wear out 8 doors instead of 3.
