BBi x Pankl in Monterey for Werks Reunion and Historics Racing

BBi Autosport has partnered with Pankl Racing Systems to push forward Additive Manufacturing for production of automotive performance and lifestyle components. The automotive events during car week in Monterey were a perfect opportunity to present what we have been working on and what is to come. We brought along the fastest Porsche to ever take on Pikes Peak - Lucy, the fastest stock engine Porsche - BBi GT2 RS VMax. Lisa Taylor, one of our close friends, was kind enough to show off her Ultramarine Blue PTS 991 GT3 as well!

Werks Reunion, hosted by Porsche Club of America at the Corral de Tierra Country Club, was created to celebrate the Porsche marquee and to bring together enthusiasts, collectors, legends and fans. Its an very well done event with a people coming together from across the world. It was great talking to all the enthusiasts and educating them on the power of 3D printing, how BBi uses it and what the future holds.

The new Titanium GT2 RS Exhaust was on display showcasing the printed X section and tips. We also brought along the 991 Turbo intake manifold and new aero components. These parts fully utilize 3D printing to take advantage of minimal material usage, maximum utility with unique design elements.

The Pikes Peak race car was then moved on to the Rolex Monterey Motorsport Reunion to be displayed by Michelin. The Motorsport Reunion event features many vendors and more importantly racing events. Historic racecars roar around the track from all decades.

Michelin is a long time BBi partner as creators of the best tires for road and race use. The Michelin racing slicks were a major factor in our success at Pikes Peak. We were honored to have Lucy on display at such an event along with other titans of motorosport and history.

BBi Autosport Porsche 991 GT2 RS Titanium Exhaust System Developement

3W8A4091.JPG

The Porsche 991 GT2 RS OEM exhaust system leaves much to be desired so we have been working behind the scenes to develop our new BBi Autosport 3.5" titanium exhaust system.

This system utilizes 3D printed titanium components to achieve designs never before possible, minimizing fabricated sections for maximum performance and minimal weight. It features a specially developed X-section with flow prioritization and no restriction as well as 3D printed tips with design elements inspired by the new 991 GT2 RS based 935. Here is the prototype system on installed on our Porsche 991 GT2 RS "Project Vmax" build paired with upgraded turbochargers, intercoolers, exhaust, methanol injection system, IPD / Innovative Pro Design Plenum/Y-Pipe, and bespoke COBB Tuning AP software.

We will get to hard test this power package at the Sun Valley Tour de Force event in Idaho, where we will get to race down Idaho State Highway 75 with no speed limit. Stay tuned for more details!!!

991 GT2 RS IPD Plenum & Y-Pipe

The revolutionary and patented design of the IPD Porsche Plenum improves intake air -flow by replacing the factory plastic "T" style design with a more efficient, precision casted aluminum "Y" design. The fundamental purpose of a plenum is to deliver smoother air at a higher velocity with greater efficiency. The IPD Plenums distributes the air -flow more effectively while reducing pressure drop at the throttle body inlet by utilizing a true merge collector and dimpled interior surfacing. To further improve airflow, the innovative IPD High Flow Y-Pipe design is a direct fit OEM replacement that is not only larger but also utilizes “non-round” runners, in addition to the same design principles as the plenum. These improvements of the Y-Pipe alone deliver an additional 35+ wheel HP, 40+ Foot Pounds of Torque. Together, the IPD Plenum & Y-Pipe increase horsepower and torque well above the factory power curve from launch to redline. The result will be smooth and linear power with considerably quicker boost response creating a longer and more desirable power band.

Features:

  • Increases horsepower, torque, and boost by responsibly optimizing air -flow efficiency

  • Designed with 3D Modeling & Computational Fluid Dynamics software

  • Utilizes diversion splitter and dimpled interior surface eliminate turbulence and increase air -flow

  • High quality cast aluminum construction

  • Direct fit OEM replacement

  • Made in USA

Upgrade forever with off-the-shelf (OTS) calibrations for most bolt-on modifications. It's the last engine management solution you'll ever need.

Supported Vehicles:

  • 2017-2018 Porsche 911 (991.2) Turbo PDK WM

  • 2017-2018 Porsche 911 (991.2) Turbo S PDK WM

  • 2018 Porsche 911 (991.2) GT2 RS

Cobb Tuning Calibration Notes

There is a new element to the ECU flashing process for vehicles supported by these three Accessports.  Just as COBB did over 10 years ago with it’s first ECU flashes, we will be bringing ECUs in-house in order to unlock them before an Accessport can be installed.  This means the process for installing an Accessport on your 718 or 991.2 vehicles will be a bit more involved than in years past.  Not to fret, we have a system in place to ensure ECUs are shipped and returned in a timely manner.  Customers will be updated at each step along the way, from the initial purchase to receiving the unlocked ECU and Accessport.
