mcchip-dkr releases speedy 485 HP Porsche 991 Carrera S
Let's go astray from the Golf GTI hype and talk about the latest project of the tuners at mcchip-dkr. It is based on a Porsche 991 Carrera S, which is not the typical car one would see on a daily basis (unless they own it). Since, mcchip-dkr is well-known for chip tuning, there is no doubt that the Porsche would feature more horses than its stock ones. Precisely, the software adjustment and development were accomplished on a high-performance SuperFlow AWD dynamometer type SF880. But to objectively see the result, we should first make a comparison.
Basically, the Porsche 991 Carrera S 3.0 has a stock output measured at 420 HP (309 kW) and 678 Nm (500 ft.-lbs) of torque. On this basis have stepped the specialists, thus developing two software optimization stages.
The first level comprises only of "pure software". The gains estimate 475 HP (349 kW) and 772 Nm (570 ft.-lbs.) of torque. The second level does feature software optimization as well as mcchip-dkr valve exhaust system with sport catalytic's "made by Capristo". The result is an output of 485 HP (357 kW) and 793 Nm (585 ft-lbs).
The changes however do not end here. The speedy Porsche is also equipped with something called PDK-transmission optimization. This means, the enforced up- or downshifting (kickdown) is deactivated, the up- and downshifting (+/-) works like the 991 GT3 and 991 Turbo. In addition, the maximum of the engine speed/RPM is enhances and there is faster gear shifting as well as a higher clutch pressure. At last, the KW-thread springs and the striking in-house vinyl design are there to be mentioned.
