997 Turbo Undergoing Modifications for Gumball 3000

April 21, 2009 Leave a comment

Like everything we do, full documentation is going to happen with this build.  Vivid Racing has hooked up with Caleb aka Stuntman to take this Porsche 997 Turbo to the next level. This car is a TechArt car to begin with.  From the aero kit, to the power, it is well dressed. The car probably has TechArts power pack that includes the ECU Flash, Exhaust, Headers, and a neat little red powdercoated Y Pipe. We baselined the car and saw it put down on our Mustang Dyno 469 awhp and 536ft/lbs of torque. The car is a tiptronic, but still should not look this choppy. With 11,000 miles the dyno chart should not look this choppy, so we are going to change the plugs with the Denso IK22 1 step colder plugs. Before we do change the plugs, modified turbos, and Softronic ECU flash, we will be adding the Agency Power Cold Air intake to get a dyno on that. This car is on 93 octane already, but if we ran it on 91 octane, this car would be down on power for what the kit is suppose to do.  So stay tuned…

Richard Yoo update

So I’m thinking about going on the Gumball 3000 this year… Growing up, the movie Cannonball Run was a staple for every young boy, much like the obligatory Lamborghini Countach poster. The Gumball 3000 is essentially like the rally in the Cannonball Run movie.

In the past recent years, the Gumball was this international event… and after watching some videos of people getting detained at the borders of various countries, I decided that I wasn’t going to get caught up in any mess like that… and I flippantly told my self that if it ever became a US-only rally again, I’d consider it…

Well… turns out, for 2009, the Gumball 3000 is a US-only event… starting in LA and heading to Miami… it even comes through Dallas and Houston!

So I applied and got accepted. So I guess I’m doing it this year… :D

As posted on his blog

Also Richard has taken a good look at Alex Roy because he is driving Hi-Tec!
“So as I start thinking about what gear I may need in my cart for the Gumball 3000 in May my research led me to a guy named Alex.
Alex Roy is a bit of a legend when it comes to rally racing…
