    • DTE 2017 Porsche 911 Carrera Power Control 991.2 3.0 Tuning Box dyno results - +33 whp

      Tuning for the 991.2 generation Porsche 911 9A2 3.0 models is not coming easily. The ECU is posing problems and only GIAC is doing any sort of flash tuning at the moment. They require removing the ecu and they also have a price point of $2500.


      With limited flash tuning options piggybacks have a place in the market at least early on. DTE Systems in Germany offers a tuning box with the following claims:


      A 991.2 Carrera owner in Bangkok tested the DTE box out. His car has the full Fabspeed exhaust including headers as well as sport cats and an IPD plenum so it will make more power and torque than stock. The dyno type is a Dynocom which in our experience reads slightly higher than a Dynojet:


      Apologies for the tiny graph but in the top performance mode the DTE box picks up 33 wheel horsepower and 44 lb-ft of torque at the wheels. Modest gains but close enough to the claims by DTE.

      BoostAddict has a VR Tuning Box for the Project 991.2 Carrera that has yet to be installed. It is a different hardware unit than the DTE box without selectable modes. Vivid Racing also claims greater gains. Expect dyno testing in the next few weeks.

      Note: Ignore the Carrera S badging in the dyno video. The owner added it along with the exhaust tips to make it look like an S.

      I paid for the car 991.2 Careera base 9,5000,000 Thai Bath or $270,000 USD including 300% imported taxes. For 991.2 Careera S price around 315,000 - 360,000 usd depend on the option. Turbo S even more arount 500,000 usd plus.

        Would be nice if we could ask him to provide the base vs. IPD/headers.

        I have a DTE box in my possession, I bet it is just a simple reprogram for the unit to work on the .2 Carrera

        Disregard. I read fr RL, with exhaust and plenum it makes 394 whp, that seems high, I agree.

        Lol over $300k for an S and $500k for Turbo...
        No wonder everyone drives Tuk Tuk's and little 2 stroke scooters in Thailand.

        Most Asian countries have cars import tax like that (Singapore, Vietnam are the ones I'm aware of). The reason simply because they encourage buying locally built cars but then none of the fancy ones are considered local so only the rich and famous could afford.

        We have a lot of good things here in the states and folks still $#@! about pretty much anything. IIRC, even buying Porsche and BMW are more expensive in Germany than here in the states. As a matter fact, it is more expensive anywhere else lol

        I think he just joined. He is going to add some details.

        He sent me an e-mail saying he didn't dyno before the Fabspeed exhaust unfortunately.

        I ran it on my Macan Turbo, made power, drove great. A piggyback will never make the torque down low on a turbo engine that aftermarket recalibration does.

        I believe I have shared my results from it on here.

        Talked to DTE, unfortunately the harness is different. The U.S. distributor is local to me (Orange County, CA) and I may pick up a unit for my 991.2.

        Who is it? Would be fun to compare piggybacks.
