Our guide will make your 944 much better and more fun to drive!
Available in standard form with power of upto 251bhp (depending on the year), so this goes to show the tuning potential of the 944. From this you can increase the power from anywhere between 276.1bhp to 426.7bhp but this depends on how deep your pockets are and how much fairy dust you want to use! You will almost certainly need to look at turbo or supercharger mods to get near that maximum power figure and your engines internals would need to be a fair bit stronger!
If you have a lower powered 944 your best bet for a mod would be an engine swap with the 251bhp 944 Coupe. The already BHP endowed range of 944s reward tuners with a satisfying power gain. 944 tuning projects should generally start with some improvement to the intake/exhaust of the engine. So get a stainless steel exhaust and good quality induction kit. A good fuel pressure regulator will up the throttle response.
FASTROAD CAMS should be next up on your tuning list and will offer big power gains on the 944. Internal engine modifications that should be high up on your list would be polishing and porting the head.
The most powerful 944 Coupe in our database offers 251 bhp. From this you can increase the power from anywhere between 276.1 bhp to 426.7bhp with mods we have outlined above.
You will get even larger power gains for these tuning mods on a 944s. A simple remap and better intercooler will almost double your power.The top 944 offers a base power level of 251 bhp. When setup for motorports we can expect to see almost mythical power figures approaching 326.3 bhp to 476.9 bhp! Many 944 owners improve the handling of their cars with slightly stiffer springs. A drop of 35mm will work well on most cars, any lower and you will hit other problems.
