Hi Paul and welcome to the forum.

That is a great looking Supersport.  I dont think Ive seen a Targa Supersport before.

I cant believe you've had it that long and only done 500 miles!

Wat are your plans for the wheels?  Lets see some more pics......    :happy013:

Hi Paul

You asked about possible Performance enhancements for the induction section of your supersport.

There’s a few options, but not all of them cheap.

-          some people change he airbox for a K&N air filter.  It’s the cheapest induction change, adds a nice sounds but I don’t think adds any real power;

-          then there’s a hot film MAF sensor change.  I think there are good for a few BHP, but are quite expensive;

-          You can have the inlet manifold balanced for equal air intake and is a few single digit bhp increase;

-          the ultimate is to go for a set of throttle bodies, but that is not only expensive, but requires a lot of engine management changes;

-  You can definitely chip them. A chip on its own is good for about 10% bhp increase.  Steve Wong chips seem to be popular, but I have no experience of them.  A chip matched to an exhaust and cam is probably the biggest bang for your buck, but then your getting into an expensive area again.

- There are lots of other performance options, but Unfortunately / Fortunately Porsche did a great job with the 3.2 engine in the first place and make’s increases in power expensive to achieve…..

Im sure others will chime in with their thoughts.......
