    991.2 manuals

    Do they all (C2/C2S/C4/C4S/GTS etc) have the same transmission and clutch (except the GT3's)?
    If so, do they handle the extra torque from a tune gracefully like a pdk, or is it more prone to frying? Obviously assuming no clutch dumping/launching, just hard driving.
    Just curious.

    AFAIK, yes except for T has shorter gear ratios.

    What is your hp goal? If i have to guess we should be ok up tp 600 crank given some tuners advertise their tunes up to 500 w PDK. Will find out soon as Im waiting on boostaddict turbos info.

    Would be more than happy with gts levels on a base or carrera T. You think the manual is stronger than the pdk?

    You must have missed the turbos project going on Sticky's car. He stated it makes 540whp on e85. Its a PDK. Yes the manual usually handles better. If you will just get a tune only, i wouldnt worry abt it.

    Meh, GTS levels are nothing for this chassis.

    No wonder the max torque for the GTS is 405 ft-lb from the factory....

    Yikes. Im sure it will hold for a while, but worst case scenario the MT is serviceable and you can beef up the clutch easily, I assume? Or just get another OEM one.

    PS. I was told the manual has a "launch mode" when I ordered my Carrera T today. I told them "BS, this is a clutch dump". You guys ever heard of this??

    Im stoked that you order the T. Jealous! Launch mode with manual? Thats new to me.

    Im sure before long Dodson or someone else will release something .

    I was thinking going w Syvecs ecu also but i believe they r still in testing mode. That would be interesting.

    Thanks man. It was an impulse buy but Im pumped too. Sick of watching youtube videos.. lol
    I think they were referring to dumping the clutch with the rev limiter on as a launch. Its a dry clutch though, right? This cant be good. Said they do it at PCNA all day. I gotta read this technical manual.

    You kept it nice and light and then added the front axle lift?

    There is no way the capacity is only 406 lb-ft. We'd already be seeing failures.

    The GTS is rated at exactly that. No way Porsche gave zero headroom.

    Not sure if this was discussed elsewhere but the clutch for the manual is a double clutch. Will probs be more expensive to replace but i bet its more robust

    Loving mine!!! This is my 3rd manual and P manual is da best (so far)!!! It makes the M manual feel so bad. I made fun of Sticky that he doesn't know what he's missing But then he would prolly make fun back that he would dust me at red lights. It's all good Click here to enlarge

    Wait until you will get your T. 2nd, 3rd and 4th are my most favorites!!!

    I'll be honest, the Porsche PDK is the best dual clutch I've ever experienced. I don't know if I need the manual but I can tell you the best solution is to have one of each in the garage.

    Maybe a manual GT3 for the weekends and a dual clutch Carrera for daily use Click here to enlarge

    I have pdk on my macan turbo and love it. However, I feel like i never get to "drive" that car on most commutes. Looking forward to rowing some gears again but im nervous about not getting a 911 with pdk. Its even better on the 911 than other models, and even better/razor sharp on the gt3 (in terms of speed). I will admit pdk suits the cars running high boost better cuz you never need to get off throttle, but in the base and off track it matters much less.
    Im also looking into the manual "launch control". Theres definitely a 4000 rpm rev limiter which keeps you from frying the clutch, and dumping it really fast is not as bad as riding it off the line. Obviously it heats up more since its not a wet clutch so you cant do it repetitively like in a pdk.
    Most importantly, there is NO rev limiter for downshifts so you can blow up your engine downshifting too many gears with rev match on.

    The PDK in the Macan is good but it's not the same. It just doesn't have that same gearshift feel plus they switch the upshift and downshift directions.
