The new Porsche Cayenne S and GTS no longer have the long used 4.8L V8, but now a 3.6L twin turbo similar to the Macan Turbo.  Manufacturers are going to smaller displacement engines with turbochargers fitted to improve fuel economy while still maintaining horsepower.  The Porsche Cayenne GTS comes with 430 horsepower which is up 20 horsepower from the 2010-2014 4.8L V8.  The tuning box kit is a plug and play solution to boost up your horsepower.  The box is an adjustable unit that takes control over the cars boost, manifold, and camshaft sensors.  The kit uses factory connectors that provide an easy installation.  On the Porsche 3.6L turbo, the install time is about 20 minutes.  Below we have some photos of a recently installed kit to reference.  If you are interested in ordering the VR Tuned Tuning Box Kit, go here!
