Porsche 996TT K16/16G 5Bar FPR Upgrade 575HP Tune

On a budget and don’t want to go overboard on modifications? The K16/16G is an excellent turbo upgrade that can be done with the stock Porsche 996 Turbo K16 turbochargers. Fast spool up is maintained while the modified exhaust side of the turbo helps it breathe substantially more giving you gains across the mid to top RPM’s. With the VRTuned ECU tune incorporating the 5bar FPR, your car will be putting out 575hp to the crank. Modifications should be consulted with a installer and the assistance of VRTuned to maximize the potential of your vehicle. For those running catless race pipes, VRTuned raises the O2 limiters which trick the computer from throwing a CEL. This map is available for a 91 octane or 93 octane pump gas car as well.

VRTuned flashes all the 996 Turbo cars via the OBDII port with the provided flasher cable. With their Flasher Client software, they are reading a full 1mb of the file to completely tune the ECU. Other companies claim to be able to do this, but are only read 128kb and making global changes. VRTuned will also provided you with your original file. With this original file you can flash your car back to stock at any point. This map includes 2 revisions in the price. If revisions are necessary, you must provide the dyno sheet showing HP, TQ, Boost, and AFR as well as a Durametric datalog. The Durametric cable is required for the revisions to be considered.

The car was equipped with a high flow exhaust system, boost hoses, cold air intake, diverter valves, 5bar FPR, and running 1.2bar on 109octane race gas.
What are the benefits/functions of going with VRTuned compared to the competition?

  • VRTuned does not require the removal of your ECU from the car. There is no down time at all.
  • Your car can be flashed at your convenience from the comfort of your own garage.
  • VRTuned reflashing is done via a Client Cable that is connected to the OBDII port. The customer simply plugs the cable into the car and reads the file with a laptop per the instructions with the cable.

Total process is about 1 hour.
  • Reflashing is done according to the vehicles octane level of pump gas and modifications are taken into account (Intake, Headers, Exhaust) to enhance power gains.
