The measurement of time it takes for a car to accelerate from 60mph to 130mph has become increasingly more popular over the past few years. This method of measuring acceleration creates a real-world benchmark that can be exercised universally.
Recently, with the help of proTUNING Freaks and our Porsche Lead Calibrator, Mitch Mckee, Greyson was able to take his Porsche 997.1 Turbo from 60-130mph in just 5.9 seconds. Mechanically, this car is equipped with an AWE exhaust, Porsche GT2 intercoolers, Injector Dynamics ID1000 fuel injectors, and upgraded turbo inlet pipes. All of that is tied together with a custom tune by proTUNING Freaks on E85 fuel utilizing the COBB Accessport and Accesstuner software.
Below are the two V-box screen shots showing a 6.002 second and 5.978 second run. The previous record for a stock turbo 997.2 was right at 6.4 seconds.
For perspective, here is a list of 60-130mph times of some popular enthusiast vehicles (stock):
- BMW E39 M5 – 14.3 sec
- Mercedes E63 AMG – 10.93 sec.
- Ferrari Enzo – 7.3 sec.
- Mercedes SLR McLaren – 7.24 sec.
- Porsche 997.2 Turbo (PDK) – 8.79 sec.

Congratulations to Greyson and Protuning Freaks!!
