Sport Chrono retrofit?

Recommended Posts

This may be the wrong place to ask? But, no point in asking for the part numbers if it can't be retrofitted - so can Sport Chrono Plus be retrofitted into a car without it?

If so what are the part numbers and what is involved in doing this. Local dealer said no it can't be done (retrofit).

With sufficient time and money anything's possible, but I'd bet that this retrofit would be too expensive to be worth it.

What benefits of the plus package are you after ? Is it the dashboard clock , the lap timer or the throttle remapping. The sport chrono plus is only found on cars already equipped with PCM 2.1 The benefits being some additional configuration settings in the PCM and the dash board timer. If its just a higher rpm before cut out and sharper throttle response you are after , you can get the same result from a softronics remap. Porsche will tell you it cannot be retro fitted because the wiring isnt present in your loom. There is nothing to stop the wiring being retro fitted but Porsche will not do it for you nor will they recode the ECU to make it active. If you are serious about doing this you will need to be very competent electrically or pay an independant service agent to do the work for you.

If you already have sport chrono and simply want to add a PCM to get the "plus" this is easier to configure. No additional wiring is required for the engine DME just the lap timer.
