    • VF-Engineering 2016 Porsche 991.1 Turbo Stage 1 Hex Tuning results - Before and after Dyno, 0-60, and 0-100 data

      VF-Engineering knows what PorscheBoost and the BoostAddict Network of sites likes to see. Real world data, real world results. VF-Engineering has a long history tuning Porsches from 911's with supercharger kits to turbocharged variants.


      Let's start with the dyno results from the VF-Engineering all wheel drive Mustang dynamometer.

      Vehicle: 2016 Porsche 991.1 Turbo (Cabriolet)
      Hardware Mods: NONE
      Software Mods: HEX Tuning Stage ONE


      Dyno: Mustang AWD-500-SE

      STOCK: 464 WHP / 493 WTQ
      TUNED:496 WHP / 598 WTQ

      Peak Gains: 29 WHP / 102 WTQ
      MAX Gains: +113 WHP & 165WTQ @ 3,600 RPM

      464 horsepower to all four wheels on this dyno stock on 91 octane pump gas is very healthy.

      This being a 991.1 Turbo, look at the torque increase and not just peak horsepower. From 3000 rpm on and it is just night and day. Picking up over 100 lb-ft at all four wheels is, frankly, huge.

      The majority of the gain comes down low as expected.

      So how does this translate to real world acceleration? A Dragy GPS box was utilized to measure before and after 0-60 and 0-100 sprints.

      STOCK 0-60: 3.25s
      STOCK 0-100: 7.61s

      TUNED 0-60: 2.87s
      TUNED 0-100: 6.63s




      Knocking off almost a full second on the 0-100 sprint is a major gain. 0-100 in 6.63 seconds is supercar territory.

      Not bad at all for what is Stage 1 Hex software only on 91 octane pump gas.

        Not bad! Our baseline was 477whp on the Dynojet for the Turbo S.

        looks like the before was slightly uphill and the after slightly downhill ... ok, it's only 0.2 degrees Click here to enlarge

        Yeah, we had a few STOCK runs which were lower, and a couple which
        were just a tad higher,... but are always diligent about choosing a baseline
        that represents the average fairly well.

        Similar strategy for the TUNED runs,... where we prefer to stay close to the
        "low" average so that we end up with a conservative estimate for advertised
        gains.




        Some people would look at the Peak Gains for horsepower and think to
        themselves that 30-ish horsepower is not a lot, but that's a number we can essentially guarantee on any dyno, with practically any fuel quality, almost
        anywhere across the country. (Under-promise and Over-deliver!)

        And as we can see, the DRAGY results speak volumes as well!

        Kidding.

        It's literally the same stretch and direction of pavement we use for
        testing to keep things consistent. Not sure why each pass varies by
        up to .25 - .35 of a degree off zero, but it's interesting nonetheless.

        I'd be curious to hear what the folks at DRAGY have to say about that.

        I can't take tuners seriously who don't provide professional data. You guys know what you're doing.

        It just isn't accurate enough at 10 hz to be honest...
