    • Dimsport close to cracking Porsche 991.2 ECU's?

      As many of you know the new ECU's Porsche is utilizing pose a problem for tuners. The 991.2 models with the 9A2 engine have kept tuners out for the most past. Rumor has it that may change soon.


      A tuner sent BoostAddict a screengrab of their Dimsport system screen when logged in. We are told usually when a model is added support follows quickly after.

      Another tuner told BoostAddict a week prior that some movement was made on the OBD-II front.

      Could it be that 991.2 owner prayers will finally be answered?

        CBRD is so frustrating. But they will be the best header option. Fabspeed's sucks.

        Hybrid turbos are already done.

        I also know of a base car that went in yesterday for GTS turbos and is getting the software done. I'll probably do this same package as soon as it is done. I'll go to hybrids afterwards.

        Anyway, trust me this forum is on the cutting edge of 991.2 development Click here to enlarge

        They keep saying that. I've kind of lost faith in CBRD.

        I dig a bit deeper and found their piggyback as well. I might just pull the trigger w pb. Power increase 15%, torque 18%. That's number for S model though. Wonder if they have one for base.

        Whats with these guys? I dont understand the point of not contacting interested parties back. They even have a cell phone listed for texting.

        From what Ive seen the headers look pretty similar in design to the Fabspeed. I mean they cant be that different with the lengths of the runners. Their numbers Ive seen posted are with the sport cats and headers installed.

        At this point I'm excited for ANY news, from ANY tuner. I still have no option for my GTS.

        I don't know. They announced these manifolds early in the year. How much time does it take to produce them? Do they even intend to?

        The design and dyno numbers seem pretty different from what I've seen.

        When I spoke with them they indicated pricing and release in October, but have gone silent and stopped responding to me since early Sept.

        I heard GIAC was working on the GTS tune. Very excited to see what kind of numbers its makes!

        You could have bought my piggy for a bargain!

        I guess Dimsport still has a ways to go. There will be a turbo solution shortly, hang in there.

        I just wonder if I should do the turbos or try to get the 911 T.

        There is something about DimSport piggy that I seem to like better than others. After all they provide tuning solution, i believe, to other tuners.

        Im in no rush on our upgraded turbos....i will keep this car for a long time to go....like my n54, its been 10 years!!!

        If you could handle the diff on the trade i guess thats more power to you!

        I also admit the last few days, the Porsche bug has hit me. Thinking about picking up a 2nd older gen 911, preferably 1990. The wife might kill me tho lol Or, i need to stop following Magnus on IG and youtube vids. Click here to enlarge

        I just like it so much. I probably won't do it but every fiber in my body wants to. It kills me they delivered exactly what I was trying to get.

        Plus I want to troll those idiots on Rennlist. Click here to enlarge

        The non-turbo one is not that bad. Could be had for 40-50k. Should be a fun/long-term project car. Its smaller/lighter than 991.2, should be a blast to drive!

        Spoke too soon...Guess I just need to keep pushing. Will post update as we go.

        Dimsport says they can do the tuning for the GTS turbos but it will likely take some datalogging and a little back and forth tune uploads with them to get it spot on. Figure on me having the car a week or so to verify it is correct.

        I'm stoked!!!

        Where did you hear this?

        Ok... maybe a tune will make me forget about the 911 T.
