Porche RSR Best Engine Build Need for Speed Heat

The Porche 911 Carrera RSR is the kingpin of Need for Speed Heat. Not only is it the fastest car in the game but it looks damn fine too. While racing about with a friend the other day we were talking about the best engine for the RSR.

There was some debate back and forth so I decided to do some research and write an article about it.

I found some great videos and Reddit forums talking about the RSR but everyone seemed to have an opinion on the matter rather than cold hard data.

Until I stumbled upon a YT video by Militia Gaming Community who broke down the speeds of every engine to find the best. Check out the results below.

Best RSR (fastest) Engine

The fastest engine for the Porche 911 Carrera in NFS Heat is the 3.5L V6. However, this is almost tied just by a second with the 3.6L Flat Engine. Check out the stats below on the chart to get the full pictures.

It is also important to note that it depends on the track the RSR is being used on. We will explain why below when we go through the stats.

3.6L Flat 6 & 3.5L V6 Race Time Stats

Militia Gaming Community tested all the RSR engines on both the Aerion and Aardvark racing tracks. Check out the stats below:

Aerion Results

Looking at the stats below we can see that both engines more or less got the same lap time. The 3.6L Flat 6 beating the V6 by point 2 of a second. Looking down the list at the other engines it seems that they are quite similar. However every second counts in a race.

Aardvark Results

Analyzing the findings from the chart below we can see that the 3.5L V6 comes out on top in the Aardvark track. This time beating the 2.9L V6 by nearly 3 seconds. It’s clear that the 3.5L V6 is the dominant engine.

So that’s it put to rest with cold hard statistics. The best RSR engine is the 3.5L V6. It smoked every other engine in the Aardvark run and came point 2 seconds behind the top place in the Aerion run.
