Long story short - popped into 9e for a boost leak check at the end of last year and ended up coming out with a full-on upgrade package. The visit was prompted by a dyno run at Litchfields that showed only 464BHP/470lbft despite having a remap and aftermarket exhaust (PO with another company). This was always my long term intention, it was just accelerated due to finding a 1" hole in one of the turbo casings (car has now done 85K miles). Essentially it's the 9e35 package with the addition of the DO88 intercoolers and full-on K24 rebuild (how they transformed two lumps of rust into pristine units is nothing short of amazing IMHO). The car was with Ken for ~1 month and the few occasions I have been able to take it out has really impressed me with it's performance - it really is a different car than what I took in. Anyway, I decided to bookend this activity with another dyno run this week (was bored and on holiday) which showed peak figures of 558BHP/547lbft. The work wasn't cheap but when you compare it to what my OPC quoted for just turbos and exhaust it's certainly good value and I was confident that I'd get a complete working system rather than just replacement of bits if that makes sense. Car is even more awesome now and for anyone considering going down this route as an improvement over regular maintenance I'd say GFI!!! Pics attached, comments welcome

Good result, 9e are such a professional outfit and are very competitive on their pricing. Enjoy the car Smile

I'd agree with Biovox as this mirrors my experience with 9E.
I had a standard 996T and went with 9E stage 2. A 74mm TB, Plenum, Kline exhaust and Ken's tune.
The car is transformed. Not just by the peak power or wide torque curve but by the way it picks up the asked, this is I think the benefit of having someone like 9E do the work. Oh it also sounds very good.
IMHO an improved 996T Thumb

Looks great! Why 2 jubilee clips on the turbo inlet?

If you look closely the second jubilee clip isn't bolted tight and in the 3rd picture (bottom left) you can see that this is just the jubilee clip for the other end of the hose. Sorry these photos were WIP and not the finished installation

Pickse, +1 on the pickup aspect, minimal lag from those K24s and drivability is much improved (and it wasn't bad to start with). Coupled with my paddle shift steering wheel (it's a Tiptronic) the car is so much more engaging to drive and it doesn't half shift (sic)
