Boxster Standalone engine management


Recommended Posts

Are there any options of engine management out there for porsches? I'm swaping a 3.4l into my boxster but I'm planning on boosting it in the future as well. Can I get a engine management that can run the 3.4l right now?

The best engine management it's the original DME; the one you have - you can remapit; no other box will take over the whole thing; you can add a piggyback to run some af the functions(injectors, variocam), but I think it's better to find a good tuner to remapit; on 3.4 you don't have a lot of "hidden" power; the 3.6 you can get more from remapping. The turbo kits shoud come with their own piggyback to control the boost.

good luck,

Sergiu

what do I need to buy to reprogram the DME? I can't find a dealership who is willing to do it for me in western canada.

Sergiu.

What Kinda of hp can milk out of a normally aspirated 3.6 (rempaped)? Are the the same design as the little squiirt Boxter motors with the same problems? Can they handle a turbocharger?

THanks P,K

chu77 - google for softronic

pk - ask the guy at softronic how much he can get out of the 3.6. the 3.6 it's different from the old boxster 2.7 engine. the 3.4 it's similar thou.

Thanks sergui,

I Was surprised to hear that the 3.4 suffered some of the same ailments as the 2.5's and the like. I assumed that the 3.6 suffered the same but your saying not. Good.

I have my little 2.5's hp upped about 40-50%. But with all it inherent flaws, it's gotta let go sooner or later. I'd like to have a back up & plan that is a little more stable. If I hear you right, a 3.6 should be an inherently a more robust platform. I'm surprised though at the relatively modest hp gain I would get. If I did the something similar to what i did to my current engine, even if I settled for much more modest 25-30% hp boost, that would be GT territory.'

Thoughts? I'LL check out softronic.

Thanks again, PK
