If there's a 996 Turbo sitting in your garage that you have so far resisted the urge to tune, EDO might have the package to change your mind. If sitting next to that 996 is a VW Touareg V10 TDI crying out for attention as well, then EDO's got a two-fer that will let you dispatch both birds with ein Stein.

The 996 turbo gets a new turbocharger, BMC sport filter, and tri-alloy catalytic converter that blow 585 hp and 575 lb-ft through the system. Newly juiced, your turbo will now get to 62 mph in 3.7 seconds, which is about as fast as the current turbo. However, another 6.2 seconds will see you to 120 mph, and you've got legs all the way up to an approximate 250 mph top speed. Keeping you glued to the ground are a front spoiler lip, the rear spoiler from the 996 GT2, and an adjustable suspension. When it's time to get back to legal speeds, six piston brakes up front take care of the heavy stopping.

Concerning the Touareg V10 TDI, the mods are mainly cosmetic. There is a slight bump in both horsepower and torque (approximately 70 hp and lb-ft) due to "electronic tuning" and a sport filter, and the top speed increases to about 160. Otherwise, you're looking at a set of 6-piston calipers up front, 22-inch wheels, air suspension with a lowering module, wider fenders, some chrome, and new pipes out back. No word on pricing for either vehicle, but both sport a paint job that screams "It's obvious that I just spent a fortune getting this car tuned."
