    Turbo Chip Tuning

    Does anybody know of a good effective chip mod for current Cayenne Turbo ?

    Re: Turbo Chip Tuning

    My dealer swears that the GIAC tuning is about the best way to go. Especially for a Turbo. He claimed 40-60 HP for a Turbo. He said you notice a lot more of a difference compared to a NA. I got the GIAC software for my 996 and noticed a bit of a difference in the higher RPM's. I'm glad I got it.

    Thanks for the info Grant. Appreciate it.

    No problem, good luck with any tuning you do! This might help a bit if you haven't already seen it.

    Best bang for the buck would be the GIAC tuning. If you want to spend a few extra dollars for a total of about 530HP, you should get the Fabspeed cat bypass pipes (they will make your turbo have a nicer growl to the exhaust), lighten the car by about 20-25LBS, and increase your HP. Also you can get a pair of diverter/blow off valves to replace the plastic factory OEM ones, this will help eliminate the lag with initial throttle push, you could also add the new EVO-V flow air induction system which will be released towards the end of March.
    These mods can be viewed with this link -

    Good luck and happy tuning!

    Re: Turbo Chip Tuning

    I had the cat bypass pipes, and I didn't like them because the CEL was constantly on (my dealer warned me) and I didn't like that because it looked bad, and if anything was actually wrong I would have no way of knowing. The other reason why I didn't like them was because they made my exhaust stink. I actually just gave them away because of that, the only thing I could possibly see using them for would be maybe a trackday. Just my 2 cents.

    I had a friend who worked in Egypt (Cairo) for a while and he told me that fuel quality wasn't too good over here.
    If true, I would highly advice against a chip tuning.
    And it doesn't make much sense: by adding 50 HP, your Cayenne gets around one second faster from 0-125 mph.
    And more than 50 HP by chip tuning only (without further hardware mods) would be a very dumb thing to do.

    Dear RC,

    Thanks for your highly valued opinion.
    Fuel quality here is not the best, thats right. I usually fill my cars with 95 octane. My 997 pings even with that at very low revs. My Cayenne S shown no problem due to its lower compression ratio. Sometimes we find only 90 octane which makes everything even worse.

    Was considering a chip and filter by techart. they claim 510 hp and 720 nm.

    Will it affect the reliability of the engine ? I thought it only adds some boost and therefore should be safe.

    Any further advice is highly appreciated

    I would agree with RC, based on the fuel quality issues you WILL not make much more HP, you however may get a torque increase.

    That said I would confirm that even on our California 91 octane, a Tuner chip tuned for Euro 98 Octane will make less than the factory power claims even with the boost increase due to major ignition knock
