Porsche 997.2 Turbo S

The 997.2 Turbo S is the latest addition to the 911 family. This further modified DFI 3.8L engine produces a mind blowing 530 horsepower stock! With 30 more horsepower then the standard 997.2 Turbo, this engine has more to give from the 7speed PDK transmission. VRTuned tunes the vehicles fuel, timing, and boost tables to give you almost 80 horsepower.  VRTuned is one of the ONLY companies able to flash DFI (Direct Fuel Injection) cars through the OBDII port.  All DFI cars require you to clear codes once you flash the car.  You can see the HOW TO here.  And of course like all VRTuned ECU Flashes, we provide you with the True Original File from your car as well as your new Tuned file so you don’t have to worry about warranty.  Not sure about the warranty affects?  Read Here.   So what will the ECU flash do for me… Gain 80 horsepower and 80ft/lbs of torque!

Stock Crank Power – 530HP

Tuned Crank Power – 610HP

VRTuned has been able to flash the DFI cars since the 2009 Carrera came out.  Now with testing completed and maps developed, the 997.2 Turbo S can be taken to a whole new level.  The complexity of the maps and tuning of the DFI Turbo is much different then the earlier 997 Turbo.  With the stock car making about 1.0bar of boost, the new flashed file gains about .2bar of boost.  Having made changes to both the fueling and timing tables, we are able to get a safe and reliable increase of power to the car.  With their Flasher Client software, VRTuned is 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. The ECU flash retains your factory SPORT mode function, but also increases your boost under normal use. For those worried about check engine lights, there are none! For those running a high flow cat exhaust system, VRTuned raises the O2 levels which will remove the possibility of having a CEL from this type of exhaust. Once the car is flashed, the turbos will come on much quicker and the car will pull harder to the 500rpm increase of the redline. The overall improvement of drivability makes the 997.2 Turbo S even more fun then it was originally. Since warranty is always a concern, VRTuned also provides you with your original file. With this original file you can flash your car back to stock at any point. If you go to the dealer, there will be nothing visible through the Porsche PIWIS system. VRTuned can program your vehicle no matter what country you are from or what octane you use. We have different maps for those running 91 octane or 93 octane and higher.

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. Once the file is downloaded, it is emailed to the VRTuned secure server where the file is tuned and then emailed back to the client. The client simply uploads the file and they are done. 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.
