Porsche 997 GT2 MC650 by Mcchip-dkr Raises the Bar
German tuner Mcchip-dkr has been a bit quiet lately, but that has all changed with the release of their tuning package for the Porsche 997 GT2 MC650. CEO Danny Kubasik had the vision to take Stuttgart’s race-bred maven and make it more “prestigious” and better tailored to road use. In stock form the GT2 delivers 530hp from a 3.6-liter turbocharged engine, but that wasn’t enough for the folks from Mechernich.
Mcchip adds beefier turbochargers, larger intercoolers with silicon tube set, 200-cell sport catalysts and manifolds from Cargraphic along with new Stage 3 ECU mapping from Kubatech. The result is an impressive 657 hp and 835 Nm of twist.
The company points out that further performance gains could have been offered but restraint was exercised so that the car is manageable for average drivers. Kubatech optimization is capable of delivering over 900 Nm of torque, but instead it has been metered for better driveability. The GT2 is a wily rascal to begin with so Mcchip decided to save owners from themselves. The Porsche 997 GT2 MC650 from Mcchip will set you back an additional 23,000 Euros (approx. $33,000 USD) over the base model and can be available after 6 to 8 days of labor.
