ECU Tuning the Porsche 997.2 Turbo S with VR Tuned
March 15, 2019
For Porsche owners who want more performance than a base Carrera but something more street friendly than a GT3 or GT3RS, the Turbo model is the perfect solution. The 997 Turbo S, in particular, has a reputation for being an insanely fast street car. At 530 horsepower, it blows the doors off of most of the competition. As enthusiasts, we always want more, even for the 997 Turbo S. Luckily, Porsche left a lot of room for improvement in regards to the OEM tuning. With a slight increase in boost comes a massive bump in power, which is where our tuning division, VR Tuned, comes into play.
Itâs no secret vehicles which utilize turbochargers love aftermarket bolt-on parts. For UTVs such as the RZR Turbo, a simple cold air intake and exhaust massively increase flow. With more air getting to the turbocharger and less exhaust restriction, the turbocharger can make more boost and ultimately more power. Without an ECU tune, however, the power gains from aftermarket parts are not fully capitalized. With an ECU tune, it can optimize parameters such as air/fuel ratio, boost, and ignition timing for the modifications and type of fuel you use. Even a stock RZR Turbo can see huge improvements with an ECU tune since Polaris left lots of performance on the table.
Mahindra Roxor ECU Upgrade to Gain Power and Go Faster than 45mph!

For people who want the small design and versatility of a Jeep CJ plus the power of a diesel engine, the Mahindra Roxor is the perfect solution. Although the Mahindra Roxor is quickly becoming one of the most popular UTV-style vehicles on the market, it has one major problem: the lack of power and the speed limiter. The Roxor is not designed as a performance vehicle, however, being limited to a mere 45mph is incredibly frustrating. Luckily, the electronic limiter can be removed entirely through an ECU tune, which is where VR Tuned comes in.
