For many people, the Kia Optima is not what they think of when thinking about performance cars. While the Optima is in the realm of standard sedans, the 2.0L turbocharged under the hood has a lot of power potential with the right modifications. The most important modification of all is tuning, which allows the boost to be increased dramatically.
In the world of small performance-oriented SUVs, the Porsche Macan has long been one of the favorite options for many enthusiasts. Itâs small, nimble, and it offers enough performance to take many modern âsports carsâ by surprise. Thanks to Porsche moving toward a fully turbocharged product lineup, getting more power of the Macan S has never been easier.
If you want to do an ECU flash on your Porsche Panamera 971, you need to remove the ECU from the vehicle and send it in to VR Tuned. The Porsche 971 Panamera became available in late 2018 providing an all new platform for the Porsche sedan. This includes their 2.9L Turbo and 4.0L Turbo engines found in the S and Turbo models. Unlike the previous Panamera 970 that had the ECU located beneath the window cowling as seen here, the 971 actually has the ECU in drivers wheel well. This is not the first time we have seen something crazy like this from an OEM. In fact the Mercedes E63 AMG 6.3L V8 also had the ECU located in the fender well.
