Porsche Cayenne Turbo 4.8L V8 DFI

The 2008 and up Porsche Cayenne is a big change over previous models. The new Cayenne Turbo has switched from a Bosch ECU to now running a Siemens SDI system. The new 4.8L engine is much more equipped over the previous 4.5L. With stock 500hp at the crank, VRTuned has some extra to give the Cayenne Turbo to get you another 60 horsepower to the crank. VRTuned has spent time engineering software for the FSI cars and is one of the only tuners in the world that can offer an ECU flash via the OBDII port.

Turbo Stock Power – 500HP and 516ft/lbs
Tuned Power – 560HP and 585ft/lbs
Turbo S Stock Power – 550HP and 553ft/lbs
Tuned Power – 600HP and 595ft/lbs

VRTuned flashes the Cayenne Turbo through the OBDII port of the car. 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. The ECU flash will alter your boost, fuel, and timing maps to give you a very dominating increase of power over stock. For those worried about check engine lights, there are none! Once the car is flashed, the low end torque and throttle response will be much improved. Turbos will spool quicker and the flash will have the Cayenne pulling hard to redline. The overall improvement of drivability makes the Cayenne Turbo 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.
