So why is this the best flash? Having tuned several Turbo’s since 2006 with VRTuned, I have been able to first hand experience the performance increase and see the proven results on the dyno and at the track. My very own 700HP 996 Turbo was VRTuned Tuned. My 997.1 Turbo with GT3076 Turbos ran the Texas Mile at 206.5mph and could drive to the grocery store comfortably! And finally my 997.2 Turbo S was tuned with VRTuned competing in the 6 day grueling Targa Newfoundland road rally.  I have owned 2 Cayenne V8 cars where the performance was noticeably improved and finally a 2010 GT3RS that came much alive after the flash.

Do I have to send my ECU to you? No way! That would be dumb. Flash your car from the convenience of your work or home via the OBDII port and the flash cable we provide. You follow the instructions as seen here (written by myself to be very clear for any computer skill level) – All you need is a windows base laptop (DFI cars min 4gb of ram), hard line or wireless internet, and a battery tender. Mac users, I have had customers boot up in windows mode to do this. If you have the tools but not the confidence, no problem, give me a call and I will do a remote screen share with you and help you do the read and write – 4809663040 x222.

Do I need to wait to do the flash for my other mods? Nope, all basic bolt-ons such as exhaust, intake, plenum, intercoolers, etc do not require a re-reflash. The only time when you need to do a new tune is when you upgrade turbo or fuel components. The ECU will adjust for basic bolt-ons and should never require special tuning for such things as a exhaust. If you buy the flash now and add on bigger turbos or injectors at a later date, you only pay the difference as a Upgrade Tune not the price of a full new flash.

What about the gas I run. I only get 91 octane? We have tunes available for both 91 and 93 octane (95 and 98 ron equilvalent). DFI cars use the same map so its not a issue. Anytime you run better octane, the performance will increase. It is not recommended to run straight C16 if you have cats as this will damage the O2 sensors and cause a issue.

Is there any other things I need to do besides the flash? Technically no. The only thing we recommend doing on the Turbocharged Porsche is upgrading to a 1 step colder spark plug. Because of the increased horsepower, torque, and boost pressure, the stock plug will foul out pretty quick at peak torque around 4500rpm. This will cause a misfire and be immediately noticed. Colder spark plug is always recommended when increasing the power, especially when that increase is 100hp!

Do you do “Custom Tuning”? We do custom tuning for upgrades such as larger injectors, bigger turbos, VTG modifications, MAFless, etc. These custom tunes are priced per basis. Regular tuning is done on your direct file, that is why we have you read it out. For all tunes, we raise the secondary O2 limits so you will not get a CEL from high flow cats or catless exhausts. On 6speed cars we raise the rev limiter 500rpm unless requested not to.

Has anyone else ran the tune that can give me feedback? We have tons of reviews from people all over the world. Check them out here:

    Looks like I missed a great deal. I’m looking to purchase the VRTuned tune for my 07 997 turbo. I’m a member of 6speedonline and a prior VRTuned buyer. I had the VRTuned tune for my cayman s as well and loved it. Can I still get any type of deal? Thank you.
