Enable/Disable features with Durametric

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to decide which version of Durametric do I need.

 

For 997.1 C2, I have a couple of questions:

 

- what features have been disabled for the US market?

- is it possible to enable the side marks to blink during signaling left/right?

- is it possible to disable the freaking PSE speed override?

- is it possible to get and install the latest version of the engine management and transmission for my car? 

 

Or could you let me know where are can find all the settings/features that can be enabled/disabled via Durametric?

I'm trying to decide which version of Durametric do I need.

OK, let's start with the easy stuff:  All these cars came prepped  for cruise control, on board computer, etc., but they were only completed and activated on cars ordered with the option.  With the Durametric system, these options can be activated (some require the Pro version), but would still require any sensors, switches, wiring, etc. to be installed to make the system function.  To find out what is available on your specific model, you need to go through the Durametric system and examine each section's "coding" subheading.

 

As for the blinking side lights, on your model, you may be limited to either having them as turn indicators or side markers, but not both, by just coding without some rewiring. Some models offer the flexibility to work as indicators and side markers at the same time.

It is very easy to override the PSE speed control, just unplug the vacuum lines on the PSE, the default position is "open" (read loud).  If you want to be able to close and open it on command at any speed, this DIY was posted here: http://www.renntech.org/forums/topic/2470-remove-pse-cutout-in-2-minutes-no-tools-required/

 

No Durametric system can update the code in your DME or controllers, that would require a PIWIS.

 

Under several categories in Durametric, instrument cluster for example, you will find a subsection called "coding" which will list what is active and what is not, as well as activation options for the category.

 

I'd suggest doing some searching, as these have been a popular subjects both here and on other websites.

I appreciate your reply. Thank you very much.

- The vaccum unplug is not an option. Most of the time, when I leave my house i need PSE off for at least 1/2 mile.

- the resistor hack / relay, as far as I know, works for 996 only, isn't it?

On my 997, PSE is connected to the DME via 2 wires. At least that's how I connected it following the PSE instructions. Does anybody know the exact functions of these two wires?

Supposedly, on the 997, you unplug one of the two wires (I do not know which) and then you still have to fabricate a new on/off circuit to control the exhaust.
