996TT plus Split Second Turbo tunner gives X50 pack BHP for $500&

Recommended Posts

Has anyone on here fitted one of these http://www.splitsec.com go to products then pug and play half way down the page id the one for the 996/997TT

It gives 50lb more torque and 35 BHP making it the same as the Turbo S. now in the uk the X50 pack is £6000 to get fitted and this is £319 from the US a hell of allot cheaper.. you can unplug it if needed and is not hard wired or ECU changed.

I was thinking for that money it's worth trying but has anyone got one fitted or had any problems etc with it..

Thanks

Any idea what this device actually does? It looks like it just goes in the connection to the manifold air pressure sensor, so I guess it just fools the DME into thinking that the boost pressure is lower than it actually is. It seems like a simple idea, but what's the downside to this?

I think thats what i does adds more boost, fuel and air and must fool it into thinking it's normal!! i'm temted by it to be honest a few have said dont do it and i can understand that. but £6000 for the X50 pack is far too much money for just 30 bhp! if it was more like 100bhp gain then bargain but 30bhp can be got by decent axhaust and induction kit?

hmmm dunno i'm still thinking if i should risk it!!? ?!?

without know exactly what it does I would not risk it. It would be far better idea to flash the ECU than piggyback with the possibility of effecting the safety programs built into the ECU.

That is the part that scares me. I wouldn't mess with it. For a little more money you can get it done right (ECU flash) and not put your $28,000 engine at unknown risk.
