SharkWerks Cayman S RS350 conversion

This white on black 2007 Cayman S is being gradually molded into spitting image of the SharkWerks RS350 Cayman S development car. For the first course we installed our RS350 power kit, including the EVOMSit Software, IPD Plenum & GT3 throttle body as well as the aggressive sounding Tubi exhaust. For a lowered ride height and improved suspension we chose the venerable Bilstein PSS9 coil over kit.

In she comes and on the doctor's table:

Off with that engine cover and you can see the stock paper filter and plenum:

And the smaller throttle body:

Won't be needing this anymore:

Or this...

And now with the EVOMS V-Flow intake, the IPD Competition plenum and throttle body installed:
Click the image to open in full size.

Next it's over to the exhaust and as you'd expect with anything made by Tubi it looks good enough to eat off of!

This is what it sounds like:

Installation is fairly straight forward:

With some larger dual tips:

The final touch is the EVOMSit software calibrated for 91-octane and our RS350 conversion is complete:

Off with the wheels:

Stock front suspension beforehand:

And in the rear:

And back to the front, replaced with a set of Bilstein Coil overs:
Click the image to open in full size.

The rear end does have a "few" pieces that need removing:

Installed:

Lowered 1.75 inches and ready to go home for a while (next up wheels and a LWF?):

Very nice. Not as familiar with this mod - how much more power and torque is gained from the tune/plenum/etc....?

Thank you and we've been doing our conversion for over 2.5 years now. I need to look and see but between ourselves, Evoms (and all their delears) & RSS I'm pretty sure we've done into the 100+ of these

You can see the development, videos/pix etc...

Also here's a plot

It's $1000 for the software, 349 for the intake, $1395 for the plenum and TB and then it depends on what exhaust you do....

Airdoc will become famous soon enough
Out of curiosity, does anyone have any numbers on the effect (hp and torque) of all these mods on the Gen 2 cars?

hi airdoc... the kit is only for mk1s with the m97 based block. The new 9A1 engine is completely different and although we have tuning and exhaust solutions for it that's where we're at now.
