  2. Re: KKK?

    i forgot the meaning of the name now but its a turbocharger manufactuer. theve been called KKK for a long time, also the "white power" KKK is a US thing, KKK turbos is not. there is no relation, and they prolly didnt even know the other existed back when they started.<!-- Signature -->
     
  3. Re: KKK?

    What about the SS camaro I drive, in Germany SS has a different meaning and a car would not have SS badges on it like in the US.
    It means super sport on the Camaro, but in Germany SS stands for Schutzstaffel and we view it as a symbol of hate and an embarrasing part of the country's past.<!-- Signature -->

  13. Re: KKK?

    hiya, im a newbie but im not new to cars.

    from what i remember, the porsche 911 turbo (996) has the same torbo system named KKK.
     
  14. Re: KKK?

    The 996TT does use a pair of KKK turbochargers, but they are not the same system or in the same configuration as the ones on this car. The turbos on this car can run to a maximum of 1.2 bar (17.40453 psi), whereas the 996TT turbos can only run at 0.8 bar (11.60302 psi).<!-- Signature -->

  16. Re: KKK?

    RUF used twin kkk turbos in the CTR2. its just the company's name
     
  17. Re: KKK?

    .8 bar on a 996 turbo? hahahahahahahahaha! maybe stock, but they can handle at least 45 psi (1 bar=14.7 psi, so roughly 3 bar!) woth the proper fuel support. of course, nobody ius stupid or crazy enough to do this...at least not yet...<!-- Signature -->

    Turbos can be modified to run at a fairly wide variety of pressures; variable boost and boost timing technology is fairly old. You can tweak the 996 to output 500hp with the stock turbos. It cuts into reliability, but the point is that it would run at a pressure other than .8bar, maybe even 1.2bar. Adjust the wastegate, upgrade the ECU, and you've got yourself a higher performance car.<!-- Signature -->
