Let's show some respect for our fellow enthusiasts here shall we?

P.S. RUF based their CTR Yellowbird Twin Turbo on the 3.2 Carrera EFI motor! If you want to flame us 3.2 turbo converts, then you might as well flame Alois Ruf too then.

Agreed....Its not like were taking a brand new 997 500 plus hp turbo and ripping it apart to get more. (not that it couldn't be done) but correct me if I'm wrong, the last 3.3 turbo was produced in the 965 model back in 1995, so Tililkum thinks that we haven't made any technological advancements in the last 16 years that can improve on this now (in many respects) antiquated design? According to that logic we shouldn't even attempt to install a set of headers or update the turbo because Porsche didn't design it that way. That line of reasoning doesn't exactly comport with the logic held by most people wanting to advance in anything....In many cases the parts and systems used by an auto manufacturer are the direct result of profit/availability. Of course this is less with a high end sports car like a Porsche, but they are guilty of it too. It's a very myopic view to think that just because Porsche designed something a certain way than that is the only way. I've actually never heard an engineer speak like this. Additionally, 7 years of university failed to teach him common etiquette and courtesy...even to a small group of people that share his same interests..
