With the N54 we've pushed the platform furthest of any custom flash tuner in the World and have taken multiple power and track records in the past. We are a very committed group of car enthusiasts and the company was born out of passion towards a hobby we all loved for many years.
@COBB Tuning's AccessPort and AccessTuner platform has been the driving force behind all of the custom tuning services we offer thus far on a number of platforms and the reasons for this are many that we can discuss here for those interested.
In case you're interested in the work we've done so far you can do go to our facebook page or follow us on Instagram, even a google search on BMW COBB protune, BMW protune should provide some good results to some work we've done. Our priority has always been the enthusiast, providing the highest level of quality service in custom tuning and support to our customers and just as we've done with the BMW's N54 and N55 platform we hope to be given a chance here and push along further together with the community.
We've had a fair share of testing done on our shop's 997.1 turbo over the past few weeks and we'll be sharing some pictures and data we've gathered so far with the Cobb AP while doing dyno testing and, much more importantly, street and track testing and data gathering. We also have a 997.2 Turbo S (PDK) as our project car which we are tuning in parallel with the 6MT 997.1 turbo.
We are looking to work with everyone here and become part of the community with our contributions that we hope you'll find useful, fun, interesting as much as we do and have always especially when it comes to refinement in performance tuning and pushing the envelope. We're excited and hope you'll find our information on the 997.1 and 997.2s useful and interesting whether you own a Porsche 997.1/.2 turbo/GT2 or looking to learn about the platform in general.
Here are some initial results with our custom 997.1 custom tuning. The car has the following modifications:
KLINE Exhaust (currently running DECAT pipes, tuning with 200cell cats to follow)
Pump 93 (98 RON) octane
OEM everything else.
Weather Conditions: 30C Ambient, 70% Humidity, 101.4 kPa Barometric Pressure, in other words HOT! Weather conditions are the worst they can possibly be for this part of Canada and outside the 2-3 months of summer we get the conditions do improve
As we always believed in full disclosure with our results and never worried about showing only the highest peak numbers for the sake of marketing we decided to still post these results in the worst of conditions for us. We are strong believers in transparency in our tuning and results and, when the weather improves, we can/will show numbers in much better weather conditions if anything as a comparison for those interested in seeing them.
Dyno numbers overview:
- Stage 2 93 octane OTS (Off The Shelf, preloaded and comes with the Cobb AccessPort): 492WHP 506WTQ
- Our initial PTF Stage 2 custom map: 535WHP 562WTQ
Gains of +43WHP +56WTQ over the OTS Stage 2 93 octane map with more than +70WHP and +70WTQ in midrange!
Unfortunately we didn't get to dyno the car when it was bone stock but we will try to do so for baseline reasons next time if anything to show what our project car does on the OEM tune with the modifications in place. If we go by what is typically seen on a properly calibrated Mustang dynos out there we know very well a bone stock 997.1 turbo will put down in the neighbourhood of 390-420whp 390-420wtq on pump 93 octane on a Mustang AWD dyno.
As all dynos read differently and conditions do vary this number isn't concrete obviously but it does give you a rough idea on what you can expect from an OTS tune, a custom tune and some minimal boltons on a 997.1 with Cobb's AccessPort and pump gas. OTS maps provide great gains and excellent drivability without our custom tuning already but being off the shelf they do leave some room for customization for any given car's particular modifications, octane, conditions, elevation, type of driving, etc which is where we can help.
This was certainly not an all out tuning session for the 997.1 and much more is certainly to come with this car modification and tuning wise. As for the 997.2TTS unfortunately we didn't have time to do any custom tuning due to time constraints. Those numbers we're hoping to have available shortly.
I do apologize for the format of the graph as its just a picture of a printed graph at this time. I do promise to provide more aesthetically pleasing dyno graph JPGs down the road .
If any questions at all feel free to drop me a line over PM or email me at any time (email in my sig below). For those that have ordered a Cobb AccessPort through us to take advantage of our custom tuning service bundled offer, thank you, and we look forward to working with you.
