    giac chip enhancement

    Anyone have experience with this mod. I'm not really sure I want to touch anything on my car but inter is coming and that means I will have time to have stuff done to car like this option and pse of course. I'm told by the tuning people that this mod will not hurt warranty and is the only engine mapping enhancement they have seen that is highly reliable. With the chip I'm told that I'll improve hp aby 12 hp and torque by 12 flb all for about C$1400. The tuning people are a sister company to the porsche dealership so the guys doing it should be ok.

    Make sure the dealership won't void your warranty if you do the mod. I don't think the chip will do much on the car though. Might want to consider the EVO Supercharger (GIAC does their mapping).

    Re: giac chip enhancement

    I had the Giac chip on my 996 and the before and after dyno showed it increased the HP by 10 at around 5500 rpms. I am not sure I could tell the difference when driving. The Ciac chip is flash memory so no hardware is being manipulated and the dealership should not be able to pick it up at all. The Giac chip is a good product but chipping is not an exact science. Each car behaves a little differently and enviromental factors such as your relationship to sea level do make a difference. In a perfect world the Giac tuners would put your car on the dyno and manipulate your engine parameters to best optimize your car rather that take a program from another 997 perhaps tested with different environmental factors

    fyi giac tuning costs $1000 to $1100 from different giac dealers/installation centers.
