highest possible horsepower for a 996 911 turbo

I'm looking at building a new daily driver and have always wanted to build a porsche 911. I've never had a fast AWD car and with being in Michigan I am sick of only having the fun cars in the summer and want something I can drive year round without worry.

Most of my fast daily drivers i've had have been between 750-1k horse to the tire by way of forced induction (turbo,supercharger)

Wondering how capable these cars are? I was looking at the 996 911 turbo's.

I'm no stranger to whats needed for these high power numbers, but just wondering if its even possible with this chassi and keep it reliable and still functional as a daily driver.

engine - what components can stay and what has to be purchased aftermarket(block,crank,rods,pistons,heads,etc)

Can the stock ecu handle tunability of such large injectors and ignition timing control?

when looking at around 750 to the tire how bad of a lag would there be due to turbo spool?

tiptronic or manual transmission? Can either handle the power? What can? Anybody run a full auto?

driveshafts and axleshafts? Do they need to be replaced?

rigidity of the chassi...anything have to be done?

anything im missing here?

if anybody knows of any already built cars i'd be interested in those as well!!

It has been done plenty of times. People like Protomotive know what they are doing. Other tuners are very experienced on the 996 platform (tried and true). As you know, it is about balance (engine with axles, transmissions, brakes, etc). One of the quickest 996s out there used to belong to a man by the name of VRAlexander (RIP), where he would constantly out race many cars. There are other forums where you will get a lot more information on those cars than this one.

Eddie's car is based on a 964, not 996. Sharkwerks also knows what they are doing and can supply themselves from many vendors. GMG races their cars and know a lot about properly setting cars up.

Highest I've heard is 800 in a 996TT. But, that is mass produced to be reliable and have longevity.

Pushing the envelope is all you gotta do I'd imagine to hit 4-digits of horseponies.

I know....I was just showing that it's been done on a similar platform.

You might also have some luck getting your question answered over on the 6 speed online forums.

I wouldn't call a 964 similar to a 996. More similar to a 911. The 996 is stronger, though, so your point still has merit.

The owner of that black 996TT posts on 6speedonline under the screen name "jags911tt"
Here's a build thread:
My New Project GTXXXX - 6speedonline.com Forums
785AWHP on pump gas, btw

He's a traffic attorney here in Seattle.

I think there may also be a few higher hp cars on six speed if you look around.

is that 700 to the tire with bolt on parts? If the car can live at that level its impressive....whats usually the first thing to go?

So i'm assuming were looking at

turbo's
bov's
wastegate's
exhaust
ecu tuning

anything else?

at what boost/power level to the cyl heads start to lift?

I maybe wrong, but you replace the rods for reducing weight, not strength.

I believe the crank can handle whatever you throw at it too.

I'm sure you'll put that 1000 hp to good use in the Starbucks drive through, or while sitting in traffic commuting to work. 1000 hp daily driver = LMAO.

As others have said you'll have more luck on 6speed than here as high horsepower 996TT projects are pretty common there. Here's one for sale with a mere 800hp, but it might be a good starting point.
