Our Porsche team continues to develop and improve products for enthusiasts looking to squeeze every ounce of capability out of their P-cars. Today, we’re excited to announce tuning support for 997.2 Carrera S/GTS vehicles! This includes both PDK and Manual cars, two wheel drive and all wheel drive. After spending time with enthusiasts at Porsche Parade and Werks Reunion, it became obvious that owners of 997.2 Carreras want to drive their cars as intended – entering into autocross and HPDE events at on average of once a month, sometimes more! These enthusiasts now have the ability to extract more power and gain a leg up on the competition!
The Accessport V3 is the world’s best selling, most flexible ECU upgrade solution for Porsche. Unlock power hidden within the vehicle by replacing conservative factory settings with more aggressive calibrations. Upgrade forever with off-the-shelf (OTS) calibrations for most bolt-on modifications. It’s the last engine management solution you’ll ever need.

Off The Shelf Maps and Power Gains
With the release of tuning support for the 997.2 Carrera S/GTS, owners are able to enjoy an increase in overall power and smoother power delivery. The following Off The Shelf Maps are available for supported vehicles:
- Stage 0 v101
- Stage 1 91 v101
- Stage 1 93 v101
- Stage 1 100 v101
The Stage 0 OTS map is simply the factory calibration data, Stage 1 OTS Maps are intended for vehicles in an otherwise stock mechanical configuration. An upgraded cat-back exhaust/mufflers will be fine and will not cause any issues.
Below are dyno graphs representing pulls using the included Stage 1 OTS maps for both 91 and 93 octane fuels. As you can see, both maps provide gains in both power and torque across the board. The Stage 1 100 map will produce an additional 4-5 peak horsepower.

Potential for Unknown ROMs
Our engineering team does its best to ensure support is available for all vehicles upon release though occasionally we do run across a situation where customers encounter an Unsupported ROM message during installation. While we do not expect this to be a large issue with this release, instructions for submitting an unknown ROM can be found at the link below.
