I wish I'd had this module fitted from the start.

Getting to 8 or 9/10ths with the standard set up I found I had very little confidence in feeling what the car was doing.

It was like I was feeling my way in the dark and it felt completely unpredictable.

Now I have 100% confidence to really press on. It really does now feel like how a quick car should feel.

Had my car now for coming up to 5 years and have added 30,000 miles.

With the DSC module and the bypass (to make it sound like it should), I can't think of another car I'd rather have right now.

Maybe I could do with a bit more power...? Question


There are a lot of mods you can do, most of which are cosmetic, but, if you're serious about the driving, I'd suggest investing in the following combo packs:

1. some lightweight rims (maybe 18s?) with some nice fresh sticky tyres and
2. in particular, some uprated brakes (by which I mean fresh brake fluid, stainless steel braided lines, upgraded pads and new discs all round, as well as a caliper refurb, if required).

As they say, power is nothing without control.

These will probably increase both your speed and your fuel consumption. Bandit

My car has the gen 1 turbo wheels which I understand are one of the lightest.

Brakes is a good idea, especially the braided lines.

Anyone had a DMS remap or similar?

I had a DMS remap on my gen1 and despite many thinking DMS are no good I didnt have any problems with them or the map they also did my DB9 and Marc SL . the Gen2 I have now has a Regal motersports remap as thats who Brookspeed have a relationship with , it is going back in shortly to be tweaked to account for some new mods I have fitted.

personally the live remappers are well worth the money as they take into acount how you use the car and any mods etc. the off the shelf generic remaps I think will have limitations as they are making assumptions therefore cant give you the same as a personalised live remap can.

just installed the DSC (thanks Osh) and been for a long drive (997.1 Turbo on 36K miles) - just back. TBH its transformed the ride.

I was sceptical but on the crappy Berkshire roads - its made a huge difference. Normal feels smoother (and more damped - you feel the bumps being soaked up) and I can even use sport on our A and B roads (before I could only use Sport on the motorway too crashy everywhere else and kind of defeated the object on the motorway as there are no twisty bits).

Tested it quite thoroughly unplugging it and reverting to the OEM unit and driving the same piece of road back to back (tested on fast twisty bits, over failing banding, light potholes).

Definately a marked improvement, so confident its not the placebo effect!

Very impressed, will probably use it in sports mode most of the time.

As I was plugging and unplugging to test I was surprised how warm it gets (not sure how his will effect its longevity ?) - but OEM does also, but perhaps not so much (but then the case material on OEM seems better made/thicker.

Glad you like it Rob, I've been driving for a couple of weeks without it and it fees like a new car again! Much more lively and involved and feels like a sports car, I do agree it dampens much better than stock and make it smoother over crappy surfaces but tbh don't miss it much. In any case its a very cheap mod so worth trying and see how you feel.

You must have installed the accelerometer as well as the module itself in your car? (had one in my 997.1 GT3), 997.2 doesn't need it but the 997.1 does, only one that doesn't is the 997.1 Turbo.

The module physically fits but the firmware is different. Maybe somebody over here like 9E or Center Gravity can do it, but I bought mine direct from TPC Racing and sent it back to them to change the firmware when I changed from a 997.2 to my 997.1 GT3. Tom Chan sorted it tchan@tpcracing.net

My unit was brought from 9E and was set as standard so good for all 997,s. I have not had any of the setting changed to work with my GT3
