Competition and Trackside Support for Your PorscheSince 1985, Speedsport Tuning has helped hundreds of Porsche clients realize their motorsports ambitions. From their very first track day to a weekend at the legendary Nürburgring. From a Driver’s Education (D.E.) day at Lime Rock Park to a PCA podium at Sebring and all the way to the highest levels of American professional sports car racing. Our clients have racked up over 330 podiums and over 220 wins in just the last nine years making Speedsport Tuning the winningest Porsche Club of America competition shop in the Northeast! Our Porsche expertise is unmatched. We’re equally skilled at adjusting a Weber carburetor in a classic 911, as we are handling the rebuild of the sequential gearbox in the latest 911 GT3 Cup. Speedsport Tuning’s staff of race-tested technicians and Porsche specialists will handle your car with the care that you should expect. We give you that competitive edge from years of knowing and doing what it takes to run at the front of the pack. Whether you need logistics & transport for a season of sanctioned racing, or you are getting ready for your first club race or Driver’s Education event, we’re here to help.

Porsche Competition Exhaust Repair and Custom FabricationGetting more performance out of your engine usually starts with air, both intake and exhaust. By freeing up the airflow, power outputs can be increased. We only recommend and install aftermarket exhaust systems from quality manufacturers to ensure you get proper performance without unwanted drone. As an added benefit an aftermarket exhaust can give you a more aggressive note, to let your neighbors know you are a serious car person. Contact us at 203 730-0311 for all your Porsche Competition and Trackside needs.
Porsche Competition Transmission Service and UpgradesTransmission technology has gotten supremely sophisticated in the last decade. Porsche’s dual-clutch PDK shifts far faster than the best driver with a manual. But with that performance comes complexity. Fortunately, our Speedsport Tuning Competition Department technicians know how to both optimize and maintain your manual or dual-clutch transmission for maximum track performance. In addition to regular maintenance, we offer a variety of services to help you achieve more engagement on the track and lower your lap times including differential changes, short shifters, sequential shifters, paddle shifter conversions and transmission coolers. Contact us at 203 730-0311 for all your Porsche Competition and Trackside needs.
Porsche Competition Tires and WheelsEveryone knows how important tires are in regards to performance in a street car. But when it comes to track driving, proper tire selection is even more critical. We’ll help you select the correct tires for your car, and mount them up on dedicated wheels. Having an extra set of wheels for your track days pays multiple benefits: it keeps your stock wheels clean and undamaged, you can go with lighter weight wheels which reduce unsprung weight, and you may want to go with a smaller diameter wheel with taller sidewalls which open up more options for track-focused tires. Contact us at 203 730-0311 for all your Porsche Competition and Trackside needs.
