The IPD Plenums upgrade for the Porsche 911 Turbo 997.2 is an innovative “Y” style designed aluminum intake plenum, that replaces the factory plastic T style plenum. The IPD design improves performance by channeling intake air to the cylinder banks more efficiently. This design reduces air flow turbulence caused by the factory T style design and increases air flow velocity. This results in substantial measurable power gains throughout the entire rpm band and the torque increases are most noticeable at lower rpm.
The 9A1 IPD Turbo Plenum is offered in a 74mm version and reuses the factory throttle body. The 997.2 Turbo intake manifolds are smaller than the previous engine. The smaller intake manifolds are for improved boost response and better gas mileage, but less than ideal for making substantial power gains. Despite this, the 997.2 Turbo Plenum from IPD makes power all the way up the power curve, with the peak power being delivered near the usable mid-range.
997.2 911 Turbo Y-Pipe – $995.00
The IPD 997.2 Turbo Y-Pipe was re-design from scratch to deliver more air then the factory pipe.
The factory Y pipe can become restrictive when adding larger turbos. The IPD Y-Pipe has larger inlets and an optimized diversion area allowing for greater power gains. This superior design is significantly more efficient and flows 126 cfm more than the factory Y pipe.
IPD was careful to design the Y-Pipe to deliver optimum flow without being too large. Just increasing the pipe size can cause a loss in boost response. These Y-Pipes can also be special ordered in custom powder coated colors and ceramic coatings or polished to improve the aesthetic appeal of your Turbo engine if desired.

+ Our Opinion
The IPD Plenum upgrade is one of a few products that consistently delivers power and torque gains. You can feel the extra torque available and the increased turbo spool in lower speed third gear pulls. The plenum and Y-Pipe combination enable you to take full advantage of any other engine modifications you might make. Combined with an exhaust, ECU tune and intake, the IPD Plenums definitely deliver consistent strong results.
Installation while easier than the previous turbo version, does require some more advanced skills. On the 997.2 turbo there isn’t too much room to work with around the throttle body and factory plenum area. We recommend you seek the assistance of someone who has previous experience of removing the plenum on the turbo before you tackle this one. The Y-Pipe installation in comparison is very simple.
If you’re not comfortable with installing the plenum yourself, we’d suggest you search our directory for a local specialist Porsche shop who can install this for you – or contact us and we’ll recommend a friendly local specialist for you.
