The 1998 Porsche 911 is a beauty of a car. With a great amount of power under the hood and great integrity. Under the Hood the Porsche contains a 3.6 litre 6 cylinder engine. This can produce  282 horsepower with a weight of  3,064 to 3,197 lbs and. The speed is incredible for a vehicle made in 1998.  

Another thing about this engine is how. Much gas it takes to power it is about 16.09 gallons of petrol. This engine takes about. This is pretty expensive but since it was a car from the 90’s it was cheaper then than now. Since gas prices have risen. The engine has 6,100 rpm (rotations per minute) which means the crankshaft has to spin 6,100 times a minute. And with that rpm comes the torque. With 250 pounds per square foot. Plus the 282 horsepower it creates a top speed of 193 MPH. with the car having the ability to go 0 to 60 in 3.5 seconds that’s pretty fast. 

Now the exhaust. The Porsche has a cat back exhaust. What is a cat back exhaust? Well it is a pretty normal exhaust but. It suppresses the sound of normal like exhaust but at the same time improves airflow in its systems.  Which helps with horsepower but only adding 2 to 5 % more and  Cat-backs generally yield increases in performance, due to the more efficient flow of exhaust through upgraded parts like larger diameter tubing and better flowing mufflers, as well as improved sound and reduced weight.

And lastly the mods you can put on the engine.  This engine can support many mods such as turbos, turbo chargers, cramshafts, cold air intakes. Increased fuel, superchargers which are like a turbo but are faster but less efficient. Another mod you can put on is the upper and lower intake manifold which would help with getting more oxygen particles which are needed for regular combustions in the engine but without a filter dirt and debris may enter the engines causing the pistons, valves, and the cylinder walls which could break them down.
