Porsche 991.2 Power Gains with Accessport Tuning
VIA COBB:
After more than two years since we first took delivery of our 991.2 Carrera S and dove in head-first, we can finally see the end of the tunnel. Not just the spec of light coming from it, actual daylight. And it is glorious. With the release of the COBB Accessport for Porsche’s 991.2 Carrera and Turbo/Turbo S imminent, we wanted to share some exciting data from our development period. Most notably, how much power these cars make! Below we’ll give a brief synopsis of the power gains 991.2 owners can expect when they choose the COBB Accessport as the tuning solution.
________________________________________
991.2 911 Carrera
For the first time ever, the base 911 Carrera comes equipped with turbochargers. While purists may scoff at the idea of a boosted powerplant, the fact of the matter is that the cars are producing more power, more efficiently, than ever before. The Carrera, S, and GTS share a 3.0L engine and take advantage of varying turbocharger size, boost pressure, and other tuning changes to maintain the hierarchical power difference between tiers. The base Carrera utilizes turbochargers with a 49mm compressor producing around 13 psi of boost to pump out baseline numbers of 367 HP and 336 TQ measured at the wheels. Our Stage 1 calibration file increases power to 435 HP and 460 TQ when utilizing 93 octane fuel.

________________________________________
991.2 911 Carrera S

With the Carrera S having slightly larger turbochargers (51mm compressor) and utilizing 16 psi of boost pressure from the factory, we saw baseline power figures of 403 HP and 376 TQ measured at the wheels. The COBB Stage 1 map offers additional power across the board, as indicated in the following dyno chart. This calibration is intended to be used on an otherwise completely stock car, requiring no mechanical modifications. On 93 octane, we saw maximum gains of over 30% in some areas. Peak power numbers are increased to 452 HP and 483 TQ at the wheels.

________________________________________

991.2 911 Carrera GTS

The Carrera GTS offers even larger turbochargers than the Carrera S, the compressor measurements come in at 55mm. With those turbochargers producing right around 18 psi of boost pressure we recorded baseline numbers of 423 HP and 409 TQ measured at the wheels. A simple Stage 1 calibration with 93 octane fuel in the tank took the GTS to an astonishing 506 HP and 488 TQ measured at the wheels, peak gains of over 19%!

________________________________________
991.2 911 Turbo / Turbo S

This is where the fun really starts. The 991.2 911 Turbo’s 3.8L powerplant with VTG turbochargers is rated at 540 HP, and the Turbo S, with it’s larger turbochargers, at 580HP. We recorded 493 HP and 485 TQ at the Turbo’s wheels in true factory-form. The final version of our Stage 1 Off The Shelf Map increases that to 538 HP and 591 TQ to the wheels.

The Turbo S managed to spin the dyno to the tune of 524 HP and 543 TQ at the wheels. After some calibration magic, the Turbo S was scorching the dyno rollers to the tune of 594 HP and 639 TQ measured at the wheels.

034 B9 2.0 down pipe proven to make power!

034 B9 2.0 down pipe proven to make power!

So we thought we would share some info on a new part by 034. They have introduced a new cast high flow cat pipe/down pipe. First it's an absolutely beautiful execution and very well made, castings are flawless and the dimensions/fit is perfect. So does it make power? The answer is YES! It absolutely does make power, not just on the dyno but power you can feel in the drive of the car. Our test took a new B9 A4 with the 2.0 already equipped with APR stage one software and a 034 cold air intake system making already significant gains then added only the 034 high flow catalyst. Note, that no software change was done when adding the 034 high flow catalyst. The results speak for themselves gaining a peak of 25ft-tq and 14hp, and a under the curve gain of 47ft-tq and 21hp. Most of that power is gained throughout most of the power band.

Renntech SL63 build article by CSJ!!

Dyno mode engaged, traction control off and the glory of Renntech is enjoyed

Mercedes­Benz has designed its 2013 SL­63 AMG 5.5 liter twin turbo to a standard fit of it’s price, but insert RENNtech and what you have on your hands is something a bit more than your usual luxury automobile.  Installed and tested by Goodspeed Performance in Scottsdale Arizona, the twin turbo kit modified, fabricated, and offered by RENNtech puts power and pressure on the OEM design.

While utilizing OEM locations and fitment sizes, RENNtech reuses the OEM turbo housings and modifies them by using motorsport derived ball bearing turbochargers from Turbo by Garrett.  In order to repurpose the turbo housings to fit the larger internal cartridge, both the housing and impeller must be CNC machined in house to RENNtech spec.  RENNtech doesn’t share their exact design or modification specifications to the public, but the overall dyno numbers are enough to understand the benefit of their product.

Goodspeed Merc BuildThe increase in power requires an increase in the bottom end strength.  RENNtech also had a part in building the planetary gear style transmission internals to be strong enough to handle the increase of power.  Goodspeed also installed a Wavetrac limited slip differential that required a 6mm shaving of the inside of the differential casing in order for it to fit.  No structural issues are to be expected from this change and the need for this is highly common.

Matthew Garrett, a technician at Goodspeed Performance that performed the majority of the install, stated that the overall install took 16 hours with a four week down time during which the transmission was sent out to be modified by RENNtech.  Matthew also stated that the install was “quite abnormally easy to do.”   After removing just a couple of plugs and separate the control arms from the subframe, the subframe comes down from the car and because the kit does not require any sort of in house placement modifications it was all plug and play.

Goodspeed has yet to dyno the SL­63, but expects numbers around 800 torque.

For those of you not familiar with RENNtech, it was established by Hartmut Feyhl in 1989 and supplies everything from a shift knob to a complete car, including the 200 mph Renntech E7.4RS, the fastest sedan in the world in 1996.  Feyhl who spent 12 years at AMG before branching out to start RENNtech, is regarded as the USA’s foremost authority on Mercedes tuning.  Even though RENNtech is the prominent Mercedes specialists, recently they have started to offer products for brands such as: Audi, Porsche and Volkswagen.
