One of Our Forum Members Will Be Blasting Through the Texas Invitational in his Porsche
If you happen to watch the racing at the Texas Invitational April 10-12, don’t blink. You just might miss forum member yumaverick and his rocket ship of a Porsche 911.
His car started life as a 2007 Turbo (997). Now, it sets records, such as the fastest time (2.49 seconds) from 100-150 mph for a Porsche at Omega Motorsport’s No Fly Zone half mile event. You can check out the entire run from 0 to 219 below. Trust me – it doesn’t take long:
Evolution Motorsports has had a lot to do with yumaverick’s car’s transformation. The shop added its EVT 1700 package, which includes an enlargement of the Porsche’s stock flat-six to four liters, a race-spec cam set, upgraded pistons, and custom turbos, intercoolers, and fuel injectors. A custom-tuned Syvecs ECU processes and maximizes the output of all of those changes, which add up to 1,518 awhp on the dyno.
In extreme high-performance builds such as yumaverick’s, sequential gearboxes are gaining popularity. His 997 has a Holinger Engineering transmission built by Bill Rader Motorsports. It’s coupled with a Guard Transmission limited-slip differential and a Tilton racing clutch.
All of those components will be put to the test in a couple of weeks because yumaverick is hoping to hit 190 mph at the Texas Invitational. Let’s wish him the best of luck and safe passes at the event.
