With the insane results of our aluminum Y-Pipe kit for the Porsche Panamera Turbo, we wanted to step up the luxury look of the engine bay with a full carbon fiber version. This carbon fiber Y-Pipe is a full replacement and includes everything you need to install in place of the original.
Looking at the stock Y design in front of the throttle body, we new there was improvements to be made.This throttle body is the same size as the Cayenne TT throttle body we use on our 996TT and 997TT upgrade kits. The stock Y-Pipe is a 2 piece plastic Y design that is smooth on the inside with a deflector internally to channel air. The bad part about the stock one is it goes from a 78mm ID at the throttle body down to a approximately 51mm diameter Y split. This then connects to rubber boost hoses that expand under pressure. Both of these are a power robbers! If you retain the stock design and stock diameter hoses, You can not gain power no matter if the YPipe is cast aluminum or plastic. This is why we made a complete Y-Pipe kit which retains a 3 inch diameter design all the way to the factory end piece connections at the intercoolers.
The dyno sheet shows the car in standard mode with the stock Y piece versus our big Y-Pipe kit. These are huge gains throughout the entire rpm band which is impressive. Dyno proven results are not something to see, but something you can feel. The more airflow you get into that throttlebody the more HP you will gain. By eliminating the rubber boost hoses, you remove the pressure fluctuation from expansion which loses power. With our Y-Pipe kit, the air flow improvement improves every aspect of driving your Panamera Turbo. As tested on our Mustang AWD Dyno, the Y-Pipe made 34awhp and 35ft/ lbs of torque.
These Y-Pipes are all made in the USA using carbon fiber braided sleeve and a bladder molding technique. The Y-Pipe includes necessary couplers and clamps for a true bolt on installation. All clamps should be torqued to no more then 15 lbs. These are designed for the 2010 and up Porsche Panamera Turbo.
