More Air In, More Air Out
The internal combustion engine is just an air pump. Simply put, the more air you can get in, the more you can get out. The IPD Plenum optimizes the intake system and when coupled with a larger throttle body, helps your engine breath better.
The revolutionary and patented design of the IPD Porsche Plenums improve intake air flow by replacing the factory plastic "T" style design with a more efficient, cast aluminum "Y" design. The IPD Plenums distribute the air flow more effectively by using a true merge collector and reducing pressure drop at the throttle body inlet. This innovative “Y” diversion area of the IPD Plenums split and channel intake air flow reducing air flow turbulence and increasing air flow velocity. This superior and proven design ultimately results in considerably power gains throughout the horsepower and torque curves.
Bottom line, the "Y" design delivers increased power and drivability. The patented "Y" design Plenum offers a lower pressure drop across the merge collector than a conventional/mass production "T" air distributor. Any pressure drop in the intake tract will serve to either back pressure the turbocharger in a forced induction application or to choke intake flow in a naturally aspirated engine. Both scenarios limit the performance potential of the engine.
IPD Plenums have earned the reputation of being the single best “bolt on” performance upgrade you can possibly install on a late model Porsche. The IPD Plenums provide the best power per dollar return in the Porsche after-market industry today. They have been tested, challenged and proven over and over again to deliver the power gains IPD claims.
Every IPD Plenum in our product line goes through a very rigorous and scientific R & D program backed with extensive dyno testing and tuning to deliver the maximum engine output possible. The countless hours we invest testing and tuning each Plenum design, ensures you are getting the highest quality and best performing Porsche performance product on the market.
LN Engineering recommends IPD Plenums paired with GT3 throttle bodies on all engines M96/M97 engines fitted with Nickies sleeves with displacement increases up to 4.2 liters to help take advantage of the increased displacement and performance Nickies offer.
