    996 Turbo RS-Tuning

    HI:

    Can anybody elaborate on the 996 Turbo RS-Tuning?

    And if it can be fitted on a tiptronic x50?

    thanks

    I had a 543 HP kit from them and performance was great, quality too. But I didn't like the treatment from Gerhard Schmirler, Reinhold's brother. Reinhold Schmirler is the engine guy, a very nice and pleasant person, highly capable and in my eyes one of the best 993/996TT engine tuners worldwide. Unfortunately his brother is more of a marketing type of guy and after he sells, he doesn't seem to care much. This actually was my personal impression. The quality of their work is very good and I didn't have any problems related to their tuning. I also know that they did several mods on Titptronic cars but if I were you, I wouldn't go with more power than their 569 HP kit. To have a substantial performance gain compared to X50, you need at least to go for the 543 HP kit. Anything below this kit is thrown out money with a X50 car.
    Also be sure they don't touch the rev limiter (you can talk to them about every single detail) and I also would recommend changing the tranny/diff./engine oils much more often than recommended by the manufacturer (Porsche).

    If you have more questions, ask. And ask now!

    They make good engines but have bad customer service

    I'm not surprised, Gerhard Schmirler isn't really up to his job. His brother does wonders regarding engines and the quality is very good but his brother ruins the whole experience with his attitude. Very sad.
