My way of a "Bad ***" is not how much the car dyno's at the wheels but how the wheels hit the pavement.
I can however say that it has what it takes to hit the track and burn some rubber.
The car is transformed, pure power all the way through the RPM range and the best way to describe it is it feels like stock but on steroids heat or not. I can't wait to drive it on a cool day
Thanks to Todd and the team at EVOMS and to Alex Ross at shark Wercks for all the help they provided me even on Sunday...
Hey KA 997TT, seriously it was/is a real pleasure and thrilled you're back on the road again with a fully-functioning car again Something was rotten in Denmark as they say from my part of the world (UK) and at the time we were flashing an F430. Todd/EVOMS are a great bunch and so passionate about the tuning side. It's rare that you have a combination of the tuner, car, passion, knowledge or hardware and software all in one place but that's EVO for sure. This is why we've had such great success on things like the EVT700, RS350 for Caymans and now the 500hp GT3 stuff. It takes time, effort, money, passion and lot's of equipment but it's worth it in the end. It's funny because as "SharkWerks", we too had to make a choice a couple of years ago. Having been in this industry for a while and been privy to a lot of the smoke and mirrors to do with tuning it was refreshing to see the EVOMSit in action. There's nothing to hide (usually because Todd's actually doing the tuning as opposed to someone in another country etc...) so physically seeing and working with them when they were tuning our 3.9L live using their emulator was truly awesome. We'll have video of this shortly but for now for anyone interested in seeing what the tuning process is like check:

And you can see some pretty neat stuff in the 500hp GT3 build where the tuning was about as custom as you can get for an NA car:

Cheers and happy motoring!
LOL those Falafels worked their magic eh? Got back and we dialed that 09 997S in and then off home early tonight:P

Todd at EVOMS. Alex at Sharkwerks. You can't go wrong. Both guys are very helpful and knowledgeable. No BS just straight facts and always willing to share their expertise and time.

You made a great choice.

Congrats .. Welcome to the club . I love my Evt700 so much that I don't even want to waste miles driving it in traffic . In fact i boughta PDK for traffic and even that is getting the Evoms tune. I have never driven a car like my Turbo has become .

If I had to pick the one "must have" option .. it's this kit.

Kino,
If you have or can borrow a performance box, you should pull a few 60-130s. It would be interesting to see how fast the EVT700 could do.
