Edo Competition boosts the Porsche Carrera GT

Porsche’s ultimate Carrera GT may no longer be in production but that hasn’t stopped one of Germany’s most reputable aftermarket tuners developing a range of performance upgrades for the uber Porsche. Edo Competition now offers three power stages for the Carrera GT, with 670, 715 and even 770hp available.

Edo Competition achieves this level of power thanks to the use of a modified intake system, re-calibrated engine controls, high flow air filters and new header catalytic converters. To round off this power package, engineers also added a full stainless steel performance exhaust system featuring electronic programmable butterfly-valve control.

The cat-back exhaust system was developed on the dynometer from start to finish. The result is a power increase of 25hp and a 30Nm increase in torque. An additional benefit is the fact that it sheds up to 18kg from the GT’s kerb weight.

The car rides on a new three-way adjustable suspension system developed by Edo and KW, and includes new shock absorbers as well as an electro-hydraulic nose lift system as optional equipment.

The final touch is a set of 18in forged wheels wrapped in Michelin Pilot Sport Cup tires measuring up to 345mm in the back.
