Our brand new 991 Carbon Y-Pipes are designed and engineered to deliver substantial net horsepower and torque gains across both power curves, but without the weight penalty of cast aluminum construction. These lightweight Y-Pipes are inspired and modeled after our proven 991 Turbo Y-Pipes featuring slightly larger “non-round” runners and optimized merge collector areas that dramatically improve intake air flow and overall engine performance for both stock and highly modified Turbos.
In determining the scope of change for our next generation Y pipes we considered a multitude of materials, manufacturing processes, and shapes. In the end, we determined that by using a composite, we could achieve a reduced wall thicknesses without the penalty of casting shift. The result was more cross-sectional area and therefore more air flow. But we didn’t stop there. We sought out an experienced manufacturing partner with a background in pinnacle level motorsports and insisted on using the highest quality UV stable structural prepreg composite with an autoclave cure. Because the finish of the outside is important for hose fit and aesthetics, we built the parts with female tools. However, we didn’t want to compromise the internal geometry with typical folds and wrinkles found with a vacuum bag layup, so we invested in bladder tooling to ensure a uniform and smooth internal surface. The side benefit of this aerospace grade process and material was 75% less weight of the part which sits behind the axle center line making it an important contributor to the handling and dynamics of rear engine cars.
The superior design, materials and construction of our Carbon Y-Pipes deliver the same impressive gains of 40+ wheel HP and 50+ wheel TQ, but benefit from substantial weight reduction for Turbo clients who demand top tier level motorsport components and quality for their 991 Turbos and GT2RS’s.
Just like all IPD products, our 991 Carbon Turbo Y-Pipes are designed, manufactured, and assembled here in the USA.
The 991 Carbon Turbo Y-Pipes are a direct bolt-on engine upgrade that require no modifications. We strongly recommend that an experienced Porsche technician who is familiar with the 991 platform perform the installation.

Innovative Pro Design (IPD) was founded in 2004 by Mike "Turbo" Kirakosyan. The IPD Plenums were conceived, developed, tested, proven and manufactured in the heart of the Porsche Tuning capital, Southern California. The IPD plenums evolved from the age old hot rod philosophy of "never leave good enough alone". The genius behind the IPD Intake Plenums is not only the patented "Y" design but also the geometry of diversion areas, optimization of bore sizes and internal surface area manipulation.
Virtually all performance upgrades stem from man's innate and unstoppable quest for speed and power, and the IPD Plenums are no exception. Turbo Mike's "Need for Speed" is embedded in his DNA. His relentless pursuit of performance extends well beyond the Plenums. Mike is an accomplished fabricator, engine builder, tuner and all around Porsche expert.
Back in 2000 Mike's personal 3.8 liter Porsche Twin Turbo was a daily driver developing over 1000 horsepower (at the flywheel) and capable of unheard of acceleration Watch the Video. This car was the test mule for all initial plenum designs and performed over 1000 dyno pulls during it's extensive developmental process.
Mike's continual quest for more power combined with his passion for Porsches have yielded the ultimate Porsche performance upgrade, the IPD Intake Plenum. Mike spends endless hours on the dyno continually testing, tuning, modifying and retesting each plenum model until the perfect plenum design is achieved for each specific Porsche model.
Early implementation of diversion splitters were cast and polished then installed inside the OE factory Porsche air distributor. These early "shoe horned" splitters yielded power gains but still required a larger opening near the throttle body for optimum performance. This is where today's single cast and machined IPD Plenum really performs and warranted a patent design.
Although the concept of the patented "Y" design plenum appears simple and straight forward there is a science behind the diversion areas and optimization of volumetric efficiencies. It's only after countless prototypes and endless hours of dyno testing that an actual Plenum design is put into production.
The entire IPD team is dedicated to providing the absolute best after market performance products for Porsche. IPD stands behind each and every plenum and our promised power claims with a 100% money back guarantee if not completely satisfied after 30 days.
We back up our dyno proven performance claims with honest, knowledgeable and friendly service. So many manufacturers inflate their performance gains with questionable and unqualified dynos. We only advertise performance gains that we can consistently replicate and promise will be realized on our customer cars. (Photo of Plenum being installed on Porsche)
IPD has substantially expanded its product range over the years and will continue to maintain this growth with new and innovative products. Even the current existing IPD product line, now covering more than 30 Porsche applications, under goes continual scrutiny and fine tuning improvements.
All of IPD Plenums will continue to come standard with customer satisfaction guaranteed, No dreaded check engine lights or warranty voiding issues and most important, impressive performance gains sure to make any Porsche driving enthusiast smile.
Thousands of IPD Intake Plenums have been sold with over a 99% customer satisfaction rate which few manufactures can claim in any industry. We even have the skeptics covered with our 100% customer satisfaction guarantee. So if you're ready to increase the performance of your late model Porsche then look no further than the ultimate Porsche bolt on performance mod, the IPD Intake Plenum.
