Morning all,

$$$$ Cash to plug a computer into your car!! $$$$

I'm doing a bit of modding to my 2006 Cayman S, which has a slightly poorly engine, and am looking for someone with a similar car who might be willing to help.

What I need is to get a download of a working car's standard Porsche ECU in order for Emerald ECUs of Watton, Norfolk to program an aftermarket one for my car.

This would basically just involve Emerald plugging their computer into the car and downloading a load of data while they turn different things on and off (this allows them to understand how the sensors on the engine provide info to the dashboard etc. - like rpm or oil level). Nothing would change on your car - the process doesn't upload or overwrite anything.

As my car is not running I need someone to stand in for me. They would need the car 2 or 3 days, for which I would be willing to compensate you...

So, if you are willing let me know! Help

It should be a Gen 1 987 Cayman S (3.4) with Manual gearbox

- preferably with (but not essential);

Sport Mode
PASM (Porsche Active Suspension Management)
Cruise Control
Tyre pressure monitoring

My build is in your hands peeps. Make me proud.

Thanks in advance,

Jimbo

It’s lucky you live in Bournemouth otherwise I would be thinking you where a Nigerian Prince looking to loan a car.... Floor

Good luck with your search for a ‘stand in’ car it all sounds a fascinating project that I’m sure we’d love to hear about on this site thumbsup

I'd have loved to do a 'build thread' and document all the progress... but the only photo's would be me handing a (very) fat envelope to an LS3 conversion specialist in Birmingham and then another of me flying offshore on a chopper while he works on it.

The lazy option yes... but also the best chance of it working option!

Jimbo, great to see the project starting mate and before anyone says anything no its not my fault he's spending his money on this huge mod . he's even shown an exhaust guy a video of my car and said it needs to be louder than that Floor Floor so getting a 1st prize at Dinslaken next year is looking unlikely for me Grin
Jimbo I hope someone on here is able to help you and if you get a result I may post up a similar ad asking if anyone can lend me their wife for 2 or 3 days Floor Floor Floor Floor

Well maybe those long discussions over coffee and bacon butties at Sandbanks may have aided your decision Floor Floor Floor

Dont know Might have had something to do with it, I guess Very Happy

Do you think we have a big enough Cayman audience on here? Or should I maybe stick the request up on Pistonheads too?

Any other places I could try, you think? Question

You would be welcome to borrow my 2006 Boxster S 3.2 manual with PASM and Sport chrono, but no cruise or TPM, if that is of any use to you Question

I`m only 30 miles away from Brum Grin

But if you bend it, you mend it Thumb

Excellent Very Happy

Thanks for this kind offer... I'll check with the builder / ECU peeps and see if the Boxster is similar enough for their needs.

The thread on BookFace's Porsche Owners UK group is growing arms and legs just now re: ECUs and what route to take so I will keep you up to date when the techie guys doing the work tell me what they need!

Thanks again, Kris. Much appreciated Thumb
