2000 996 Making 996 Faster on the Track


Vehicle Information: Model: 996 C2; Year: 2000; Body Type: Coupe; Total Mileage: 48,000;

I'm looking to make some changes to my car to increase speed on the track without harming the reliability of the car. I am willing to sacrifice the street legal status of the car. The car is stock, except for track seats/harnesses, Pagid Orange Brake Pads & Factory Sport SuspensionMy initial thoughts are (ranked according to bang for the buck):1) Upgrade to track tires2) Install cold air intake3) Remove A/C4) Remove rear seats & some interior panels5) Upgrade engine chip6) Exhaust system -- replace factory system with "sport cats" and pipes in place of mufflers... assuming that this will make the car lighter & produce power.7) Thinking of replacing the engine compartment cover (hood) with light weight GT3-RSR type set-up... presuming it will save weight and provide downforce.My questions are:1) Can you recommend cold-air intake system manufacuture? How much HP can I gain?2) Would removing AC, rear seats and interior panels make a significant weight loss?3) Can you recommend chip upgrade manufacturer? How much HP can I gain?4) What exhaust upgrade do you recommend? How much HP can I gain?5) Do you think the rear hatch is heavy? Does the stock wing provide any downforce or can I get more using GT3 RSR style wing?6) I'd like to drop a couple of hundred pounds from the car and add 35HP... all for under $5,000, is this possible?7) Would you recommend suspension mods before the other items that I have listed as a means of making speed?Thank you!
