Performance Parts From Top Brands

Exhaust

Some drivers choose to modify their exhaust purely for cosmetic reasons or to achieve a deafening roar. What they don’t know is that there are added benefits to more sophisticated exhausts. They are designed to increase the flow of exhaust gasses out of the engine, which unlocks more horsepower.

Tires

The most common tires and those meant for most vehicles focus on tread as a safety feature. When you shift the focus to performance, you'll want to focus more on grip and performance than longevity and comfort. It is important to find a balance between performance and comfort that's best for your driving.

Wheels

When you are investing in the perfect tires, make a point of choosing the right wheels to go with them. Across the board, you are going to hear a recommendation for alloy, and we couldn’t agree more. You want lightweight wheels in order to improve handling and brake performance. Ask us about APEX RaceWheels.

Brakes

Every fast car needs a reliable way to slow down, whether that’s for a tight corner or a stoplight. GT Peace Automotive has aftermarket brake parts from companies such as Stoptech and Brembo for most vehicles, including Porsches.

Suspension

This mod should speak for itself. Suspension isn't just for keeping you comfortable while you're cruising on the highway. Upgrading your suspension is a great way to increase cornering performance, while also keeping your car more stable which improves safety. The less you are jostling around the better control you have over your vehicle and the safer you will be. Check out parts here from Ohlins Racing.
