    First 997tt modified ECU software - more power !

    From RS Tuning website:

    "Our Tuningkit for the 997 Turbo successfully graduated the first engine dyno course. Of the potential of the motor comfortably surprised a 1st achievement step with more than 400 kW / 540 HP.More to come"
    From rennlist.

    Already saw it. Wetterauer also offers a 540 HP kit. Not sure about the reliability, though.

    All I can say is WOW!

    Crash,
    Any particular reasons you're concerned about reliability? My first info received from friendly tuner is that the biggest bottleneck is the exhaust which is particularly restrictive (even compared to 996tt!). Apparently there's even more to be gained out of that than ecu mapping. The vtg turbos are not such a piece of art as P claimed but thankfully can be further improved for better torque/power. Also I heard that Intake etc has been sorted out and is much less restrictive than 996tt.

    My concern comes simply from the fact that we don't know how much stress these turbochargers can really take. Nothing to worry about in the UK, but if you travel a lot through continental Europe, especially Germany, I would be wary of modifying the vehicle, utnil I knew for certain that it was bulletproof. RC gave some good advice. Wait at least one year and then look at what transpires. Don't forget, he almost got killed in his 996TT when an early version of the tuner's software went haywire at high speed.

    rs tuning happens to be reliable in general.

    I agree, but still, I'd wait until at least several other people chipped their cars. Just makes sense, when upgrading a 150.000 Euro car.
