Hi Everyone,

So I have a 997.2 Turbo S and I have just had Europipe exhaust fitted and had air filter changed to high flow BMC filter

Couple of people have advised I should get the turbo reampped but I am in two minds.

Has anyone had their turbo S remapped? How much BHP do you have now? how does car drive since Remap?

I don’t want to carry out any more upgrades just Remap.

Also, who should I go for Remap? The feedback on Forum about DMS is very negative, so I will stay away from DMS.

Thanks for your help

I would vote for 911E they are highly regarded when it comes to tuning Turbos.

Have had both on mine Surprised (997.1 Turbo though)

I much prefer the 9e map, the power feels much more linear. (Really does pull like a train.)

I have upgraded intercoolers, plenum, TB, Y-pipe, Kline headers and 100 cell exhaust.

Will you release much more without upgrading other components to help inlet or outlet tracts - I don't know Dont know

9e. Without question.

With an exhaust system and IPD intake plenum they can easily thump another 100hp+ on, with a safe map. Safe being the key word here- which is why I recommend 9e.

I had mine done nearly 3 years ago and it's simply sublime. You already have the GT2RS intercoolers which are more than adequate for circa 100hp gains. But everyone seems to be going for the do88?? jobs now.

If you decide to go 9e, Ken will talk you through it all in a very understandable manner. Do it, you won't regret it

I also did not want any more upgrades than the remap. I have used EVOMSit by Sharkwerks. It is reversible and can be done at home via a PC. The results are superb. Alex at Sharkwerks is a great guy.The acceleration is more linear and there is no lag since the remap, 60 HP power gain, I believe. Sharkwerks have an excellent reputation and I was not disappointed.

I have a friend that used them and was not happy at all. Job took way longer than estimated and total bill was double the original quote. He felt like his pants had been pulled down.
If it were my car I would go with 9E

Interesting to hear that, that's the first negative comments I have heard about ES.

Mine had work done by ES before I bought it, so I cannot comment directly, but know that the previous owner was extremely happy with them. I have spoken with ES a couple of times and they have been super friendly/ helpful.

If I wanted more work done I would get them to do it, but if honest 650WHP is plenty for me currently.

OP, I would speak with both 9E and ES and make a decision from there Thumb

Links?

I had my 997.1 Turbo remapped by DMS nearly 10 years ago, never had an issue and wouldn't go back to standard.

A previous thread - related which touches on the issues that can occur with different maps.

I am now very happy with the 9e tune, I explain why on page 3 and touch on the differences between that map and the previous one I had on the car.

Re: faster car, I am not sure there are many to choose from at the price point.

Yawn... such a dull post Confused

Perhaps we should all get Ford Fiesta's then? After all, they can break the speed limits 'where we live'

With a little imagination, there's always somewhere we can find to let rip with a 600hp 911. And let me tell you- It's fekkin great fun! Thumb

I have the exact Sharkwerks tune from Alex - done by EVOMSIT - excellent tune and a lot of fun. Power, torque and the throttle response is amazing , just like their NA tunes for the C4S I had before. For the NA the instant throttle response and torque increase was very noticeable which led me to go again with Sharkwerks - their 1 on1 help was excellent even though in they are in the states. Alex is british Smile

Why, why, why?
Porsche gave you more than enough from stock.
You can easily lose your license in 10 seconds with a standard car.
Go ahead spend your 2 grand, you can then lose your license in 9.5 seconds!
I always have one thing to say to folk who want to do this.
If you want to drive fast, first learn to drive.
You would be far better investing your 2 grand on some proper track tuition, you would be truly amazed what you would learn.
Maybe then you would realise that your talent, will never ever reach what the car is capable of in standard trim.

I could quite easily lose my license by driving a 40hp and speeding. So that argument doesn't make any sense to me.

If anybody can explain what the legal limit is on how quickly I can get from 20-70mph I'll consider what sort of power level I should be running.

If being able to travel at the speed I wish to travel at and to get there in as short a time as possible is a bad thing, then I'll look at how I can reduce the effectiveness of my brakes as well.

100% agree. Buy a 991.2 turbo S or 992 turbo S if you want to go quicker. Daft though as 997 more than rapid enough out of the box. 997 turbo S was the first Porsche turbo I thought doesn't need any more power. Same with 991. These cars are rip your face off quick a-b straight out of the box. In fact on many b roads you couldn't even use 50% of a stock 997 turbo's power. I have to close my eyes with fright in the 991 turbo its so ridiculously fast when I've had a p ride. Something very wrong with you if you need to go faster Grin Grin Grin
