Porsche Macan Development – New Tables, More POWER!

porsche_macanturbo_2015_georgebucur_7

Over the past few months our Porsche calibration team here at COBB has spent a great deal of time on the dyno with our shop 2016 Porsche Macan S.  Their time has largely been spent refining existing Off The Shelf Maps and continuing to learn more about the platform in general.  In doing this, we have learned a lot about the torque control strategy implemented in the Macan’s ECU.  Our calibrators have successfully been able to utilize more of a standard target boost control strategy on the vehicles which in turn allows a significant gain in power along with simplified tuning sessions. Our original implementation uses an airflow based torque control strategy that was very time consuming to make adjustments in.  For now, the main benefit is a power increase for exisiting tunes.  In the future, this simplified tuning strategy will help to simplify tuning sessions for COBB Certified Protuners.

Performance Gains

Please note that the dyno plots below were done on two separate dynos, the most important figures to pay attention to are the delta from stock to tuned.

Macan S Gains:

The dyno graph below shows the significant gains seen on our shop Macan S with an updated v202 OTS map.

Macan S For Marshall

  • Red – Stock Calibration
  • Green – COBB v102 Stage 1 93
  • Blue – COBB v202 Stage 1 93

The v202 pull makes approximately 60 ft-lbs additional torque and 30 additional horsepower right at 2400 RPM.  This gain is seen through the low-mid range and tapers towards very similar peak horsepower when compared to v102 maps.

Macan Turbo Gains:

The Macan Turbo sees power come on a bit earlier and pushes to approximately 20 additional horsepower on the big end.

The Smoking Tire recently drove a 2017 Macan S equipped with a V202 Stage1 91 OTS map, see the video below for Matt’s reaction!

“This Porsche Macan S, owned by Matt’s housemate Nick, has been modified slightly with a “no-name” brand catback exhaust, Michelin snow tires for winter ski trips, and COBB Tuning’s new Accessport and software. On 91 Octane, the COBB software shows gains of 38 horsepower and 75 lb/ft at the wheels.”

Acquiring v202 OTS Maps

Accessing the updated maps is straight forward!  Simply connect your Accessport to your computer using a USB cable and utilize our Accessport Manager software to perform a firmware update.  See below for firmware update instructions.

  • POR-009 Accessports utilizing firmware version 1.7.3.0-13884 or newer will have the maps pre-loaded

The updated tuning strategy is applied to maps for all supported Porsche Macans including the S, GTS, and Turbo models.  See below for an updated list of maps for each respective vehicle.
