Tuner Optimizes Porsche 991 To Get 485 Horsepower

MCCHIP-DKR increases performance by focusing on software

Auto manufacturers increasing reliance on turbocharging to increase efficiency and performance is turning out to be a big boost to performance tuners. It turns out that it is much easier to upgrade the performance of a turbo charged engine than it is a normally aspirated engine.

Porsche has always been big on turbocharging select models in their lineup. Increasingly, they are increasing the use of forced induction across their lineup. Once such company to benefit from this trend is MCCHIP-DKR.

The German-tuner is focusing its efforts o the Carrera’s new 3.0-liter turbocharged flat six power-plant. Using a 991.2 Carrera S as a base, the company increases the stock 414 horsepower and 500 pound-feet of torque to 478 horsepower and 585 pound-feet of torque.

Stage 1 is the most subtle and cost-effective option. By only upgrading only the software, performance is increased to 468 horsepower and 570 pound-feet of torque. By also updating to a performance exhaust system and sport catalytic converters, the car achieves the 478 horsepower and 585 pound-feet of torque rating.

If you want to go with the complete package for your Porsche 991, MCCHIP-DKR is only too happy to optimize your PDK-transmission, deactivating the enforced up and downshifting, providing for faster shifting through the gears and higher engine RPMs.
