    If you have work to be done, call them and tell them Jason with the Porsche and RX7 sent you. I have been sending him a few guys so he tends to give a break on price a bit if you are paying and not insurance.

    Did the plugs on the Porsche today and uploaded the tune. It took longer to change the spark plugs on the Porsche than it did for my buddy Yan to do a cam swap on his Twin Turbo Saleen and he even had to almost do his job twice because he put the cams on the wrong side.

    With the plugs I was able to upload the tune. The extra 100hp didn't feel that extraordinary at first because the car is just so smooth and handles the acceleration so well it is so uneventful. On the way home though once the car warmed up the extra power was definitely noticeable. Pushes you back in the seat much harder than before and makes you giggle like a school girl as the boost reaches 1 bar. Noticed the clutch was slipping a bit too at 1bar so will have to get it in the air some time soon to swap the clutch.

    Yan cheating and getting a head start...



    Yan cheating again by getting Johnny to help him...



    Yan pretending he knows what he is doing...



    Getting the car ready to access the plugs...





    5 hours later and we were ready to upload the tune.

    I thought Yan's Mustang was single, not twin turbo. I need to change my plugs too...

    Installed the emblem on the rear deck lid. I think I like it. I can always remove it when I feel like it if I grow tired of it. Opinions?

    Did the exhaust bypass mod last night. Im very happy with the results. It is a much deeper tone and about 35-40% louder than stock.







    Here is a before and after video. Unfortuatly the mic on my camera did not do a good job of picking up the sound so the video is not that great.

    LOL, especially in videos for some reason. They rattle like crazy. Don't really hear it in person but I know the sound you are talking about.

    Quick question. Did they have to crack open the ECU to tune it or was it done entirely from the cable?

    All done through the OBD port.

    Softronic flashes all the Porsche 996 cars through the OBDII port. With their Flasher Client software, they are reading a full 1mb of the file to completely tune the ECU. Other companies claim to be able to do this, but are only read 128kb and making global changes. The ECU flash will alter your boost, fuel, and timing maps to give you a very linear increase over stock. Softronic tunes using the factory knock and oxygen sensors to ensure you get the best map the first time. Basic bolt on modifications like Diverter Valves, Exhaust, and Intake do not require the re-reflash of the ECU, they only bring out further performance of the vehicle. For those worried about check engine lights, there are none! For those running a high flow cat exhaust systems or straight pipes, Softronic raises the O2 levels which will eliminate any CEL's. Once the car is flashed, the turbos will come on much quicker and the car will pull harder to redline. The overall improvement of drivability makes the 996 Turbo even more fun then it was originally. Since warranty is always a concern, Softronic also provides you with your original file. With this original file you can flash your car back to stock at any point. If you go to the dealer, there will be nothing visible through the Porsche PIWIS system. Softronic can program your vehicle no matter what country you are from or what octane you use. We have different maps for those running 91 octane or 93 octane and higher.

    What are the benefits/functions of going with Softronic compared to the competition?


    •Softronic does not require the removal of your ECU from the car. There is no down time at all.
    •Your car can be flashed at your convenience from the comfort of your own garage.
    •Softronic reflashing is done via a Client Cable that is connected to the OBDII port. The customer simply plugs the cable into the car and reads the file with a laptop per the instructions with the cable. Once the file is downloaded, it is emailed to the Softronic secure server where the file is tuned and then emailed back to the client. The client simply uploads the file and they are done. Total process is about 1 hour.
    •Reflashing is done according to the vehicles octane level of pump gas and modifications are taken into account (Intake, Headers, Exhaust) to enhance power gains.
