The perfect compliment to Fabspeed's 987.2 Boxster/Cayman exhaust upgrades, this high performance intake plenum from Innovative Pro Design and upgraded 82mm throttle body provide substantial power gains by increasing the efficiency and flow of the engine's air intake system.
The IPD 987.2 Boxster/Cayman Competition Plenum was designed to meet the needs of the most demanding Boxster/Cayman enthusiasts. The Competition Plenum is internally larger and specifically designed to utilize the larger 82mm GT3 throttle body. This new 987.2 Competition Plenum follows in the foot steps of the very successful 987.1 Competition Plenum, which has proven itself to be one of the best performance mods that can be installed on any 987.1 application. The combination of the patented IPD "Y" designed Plenum and Porsche's largest throttle body yield great performance gains that can be seen and felt throughout the entire power band.
The Competition version was designed and developed to work in perfect concert with Fabspeed's performance exhaust products. The addition of exhaust, headers, and high-flow cats will only further compliment the dramatic increases with intake air flow delivered by the IPD Plenum.
Performance gains take place throughout both horsepower and torque curves but are most realized through the mid-range and well into peak power range. This system develops up to 20+ hp and 15+ ft/lbs of torque on 987.2's already equipped with aftermarket cat-back exhausts.
Once installed, the 987.2 Cayman Competition Plenum will truly transform your Porsche driving experience.
Superior and more efficient design over the factory intake.
The IPD Plenums are products of efficiency that simply improve intake air flow and increase air velocity. The “Y” shape design and dimpled interior surface make air flow more laminar (less turbulent) dramatically improving power and torque across the entire RPM band. Smoother more optimized intake air flow will improve the performance of any engines. The more efficiently an engine breaths, the more efficiently it produces power.
Deliver impressive power gains regardless of modifications.
The superior design of the IPD Plenums optimize flow while increasing air velocity. Period! This applies to any Porsche engine, producing any level of power. The patented “Y” design delivers impressive performance gains for both bone-stock and highly modified Porsches. The more efficient design of the IPD Plenum will always outperform the factory air distributor. The factory intake will become even more detrimental to performance as your increase the power and torque outputs. The bigger the power, the better the IPD Plenum performs.
Produce substantial gains for both turbo and NA applications.
The Plenums always deliver considerable gains on both turbo AND naturally aspirated engines. It's a fact that the Turbo Plenums do produce more power than the NA Plenums. But the Turbo engines also produce more power. The fact is that the percentage gains of the different Plenum applications are actually almost identical, around 8-10% depending on the specific model.
Do not require an ECU flash and will not cause a CEL.
IPD Plenums should never cause a CEL or require an ECU Flash. If a Plenum is installed correctly there should be no fault codes or running issues, only solid performance gains across the entire RPM band. The only issue that could possibly arise is the need for a new MAF sensor if you already have a degraded sensor or perform a TB adaptation. There is absolutely no need to re-flash your ECU after installing an IPD Plenum, Period! Although any reputable Porsche tuner could further optimize an ECU program to achieve even greater performance gains with the Plenum installed.
Aluminum Plenums run cooler and don't suffer from heat soak.
The Aluminum Plenums do NOT experience heat soak under driving or racing conditions. It is true that aluminum has a higher thermal conductivity than plastic. In fact, aluminum is 650 times more thermally conductive than plastic and has a specific heat capacity that is 550 times higher than plastic. This means the aluminum Plenum actually spreads the energy it's exposed to 656 times faster than the plastic and can store more than 550 times the amount of energy per unit mass. Bottom line, aluminum can absorb more heat than plastic, but it also takes considerably more energy to heat up and it's losing that energy way faster than the aluminum allowing the IPD Plenum to remain cooler from outside ambient air under driving conditions, ultimately improving engine performance over plastic. Plus, why would Porsche utilize aluminum intakes on GT3's, GT2's, Cup Cars and Cup R's?

NOTE: If you are upgrading your throttle body along with the IPD Plenum, you may need to visit a dealership to have them perform a manual throttle body adaptation process. Some customers have reported that installing the throttle body and plenum while the battery is disconnected results in the car performing an adaptation check once the battery is reconnected, alleviating the need to visit a dealership. However, Fabspeed recommends having the adaptation performed at a certified dealership for optimal results. If you need a recommendation for a dealership in your area, please contact us.
