I have updated text below to take into account if you have a 997.2 unit.



Essentially what has been said is correct. I think some of the problem is that the Sku used is more confusing - it would be better if they had a part number to indicate a different car.

So

997.1 Turbo and 997.2 Turbo (DSCv1) is interchangeable
997.1 is not interchangeable with 997.2
997.1 cars always need accel if non turbo.
997.1 non turbo is not interchangeable with 997.1 turbo and vise versa
997.2 - the unit is the same for all cars and is backward compatible with 997.1 Turbo only.

Generally, but it is not always the case, 987.1 and 997.1 is interchangeable as is 987.2 and 997.2.

To be clear when we say interchangeable we mean that the firmware does not need to be updated. We cannot update the firmware - we have to send it back to TPC. However, the project file (configuration) may need to be changed which we can do. As an example a 991.1gt3 and 981 gt4 has the same firmware, but in order to swop from one to the other you need to update the dsc with the correct project file.

The reason we ask for the make / model registration is for the above. Also, we want to know the information because many times I will load a custom project file on to the unit supplied. The reason behind this is because we have found in the example of cab cars that the spring rates are softer than coupe generally and therefore the stock project file makes the car too soft especially on rebound. Again as another example 991.2 Carrera T has softer springs than say a 991.2 GTS/S so we make a change for that.
