Cayenne Turbo Power Gains

Our Stage 1 calibrations for the 9Y0 Cayenne GTS are available for either 91 or 93 octane fuel and their increase over stock is truly astonishing.  On 93 octane fuel, we are seeing 604 whp tuned compared to 519 whp stock and 684 wtq tuned compared to 530 wtq stock.  This means you have an additional 155 lb-ft of torque on tap in the mid range along with an increase of 116 hp pulling you through the powerband.

Stage 1 93

  • Peak: +16.5% HP / Max: +29.1% HP
  • Peak: +28.9% TQ / Max: +29.4% TQ

Stage 1 91

  • Peak: +15.9% HP / Max: +25.7% HP
  • Peak: +25.4% TQ / Max: +26% TQ

Cayenne GTS Power Gains

The 9Y0 Cayenne GTS is mechanically identical to the Turbo model.  Same motor, same turbos, and even the same ECU.  The only difference between the two comes down to Porsche’s ECU logic as it’s strategy does vary slightly from that found in the Turbo.  This means that while the GTS does benefit hugely from tuning, it does not *quite make the same power at the tire as that of the turbo post-tuning.  The standard Stage 1 calibration file is available for both 91 and 93 octane fuel.  On 93 octane, the GTS will make ~570 whp compared to 437 whp stock and 639 wtq tuned compared to 460wtq stock, an increase of 136 HP and 185 TQ over stock.  Our “OEM+” file uses calibration data between stock and Stage 1, which provides the same power output as a Turbo model Cayenne and is compatible with either 91 or 93 octane.

Stage 1 93

  • Peak: +30.2% HP / Max: +40.5% HP
  • Peak: +38.8% TQ / Max: +41% TQ

Stage 1 91

  • Peak: +26.8% HP / Max: +35% HP
  • Peak: +33.3% TQ / Max: +35.5% TQ

OEM+ (91 or 93)

  • Peak: +28.1% HP / Max: +30.9% HP
  • Peak: +29.3% TQ / Max: +31.3% TQ

Cayenne S Power Gains

Porsche’s newer 2.9L Twin Turbo V6 powerplant responds very well to tuning! Our Stage1 tuning files produce a power band that is significantly smoother than stock while achieving significant increases to power under the curve. After touching right at 450 lb-ft of torque on 93 octane, we are able to carry impressive gains all of the way to the top of the power band.

Stage 1 93

  • Peak : +10% HP / Max : +28% HP
  • Peak : +15% TQ / Max : +28% TQ

Stage 1 91

  • Peak : +7% HP / Max : + 24% HP
  • Peak : +13% TQ / Max : +24% TQ

For additional information, See Map Notes.

Cayenne Base Power Gains

Included on the Accessport are two different versions of our Stage 1 Off The Shelf (OTS) Map.  One is meant for use with 91 octane fuel, and the other with 93 octane fuel.  The 93 map uses a higher boost ceiling which allows for better low end torque but the single turbocharger can’t efficiently hold that boost all the way through the gear so it drops at higher RPM. The 91 map uses a lower boost ceiling to control knock but this lower boost is more sustainable and the turbo can hold it a little longer. At the top of the gear, both maps are targeting the same boost but some runs can see slightly higher boost on the map that is less aggressive down low.

    • Hey there! We have not yet tested our calibrations in conjunction with the e-Hybrid systems so those trims are not yet supported.


  1. I see you guys are doing the Porsche Platform do you plan to include Audi as well since the RS5, S5, S4, S7 share the same engine and trans?

    • Yes, we are currently working to expand our Audi vehicle support. Be on the lookout for that support to start rolling out early 2023.


  2. Will this void my Porsche Certified Pre-Owmed warranty, can I flash it back to stock for service visits and other dealer visits then back when needed?

    • Hey Angelo,

      Installing an Accessport will not outright void your Porsche CPO warranty, as an owner you are protected from such. That said, if anything were to occur to the vehicle while and it is determined that the more aggressive tuning is to blame, Porsche can (and likely will) refuse to cover repairs associated. We do encourage you to Uninstall the Accessport from the vehicle whenever you are going to take it in for service, that way the Dealer’s tools are able to communicate and update any modules should they need.


    • Hi there! We do not formally have plans to support the E-Hybrid models but have definitely seen some interest. I don’t have any info to share at the moment, but we will likely investigate in the coming months.


  3. This tuning is available for Cayenne’s built after June 2020? My wife takes delivery in April of a GTS, I’d love to get down pipes and a tune for it.

    • Hey Sean! Yes, our Cayenne support either already covers or will be able to cover an April delivery GTS build. We are currently aware of 1 GTS ROM that is not yet supported, but are already working on it – it’s entirely possible we even have that available before you take delivery.


  4. Can you confirm a couple items?
    For the base Cayenne, I don’t need any additional hardware items (intake/exhaust) for the Stage1 on 91?
    Is there any issue with using the 91 mapping with 93 octane fuel?

    • Hey Angelo, sure thing!

      You do not need anything other than the Accessport itself to enjoy the benefits of our 91 octane Stage 1 file on your Cayenne. Secondly, there is no issue whatsoever using a higher octane rating fuel than the map calls for. Many customers choose to do so simply as an added layer of protection.


    • Hey there! We do not currently have additional calibrations in the works for the Cayenne.


  5. Hi,

    Can you confirm the Accessport V3 supports the 2023 Cayenne Turbo please? I would like to buy the device from one of your dealers. Thanks!

    • Hi there! We are actually working to release official support of 2023 Cayenne Turbo support very soon. Depending on build date, it is possible your truck is already supported (if early build date). We anticipate adding support for the remaining known 2023 ECUs around May 10th.


  6. Just curious as to why a Porsche Cayenne E-Hybrid is difficult to tune even though it has the same motor as the base model. Is it because of the communication between the ICE and the electric motor? From your experience what issues occurs or specific error codes? Would there be an issues if we used the Sport Or Sport plus mode instead of the Hybrid mode? Just trying to understand. This is for 2019 Porsche Cayenne E-Hybrid specifically.

    • It’s not necessarily difficult, we just haven’t prioritized testing it on-vehicle. If we see an influx of demand and can locate a local (to Austin, TX) vehicle to test on, support can likely be added relatively quickly.


  7. Wish you made a tune for the Turbo S e-hybrid. Always wanted to feel what an 800hp suv feels like!

  8. If I lived in Austin Texas, I would definitely loan you my Porsche Cayenne E-hybrid for tuning. It’s my weekend SUV, but I live in Northern California. Hopefully it will happen.

  9. Are there any plans to support 958.2 Cayennes, especially the S and GTS which share the 3.6TT V6 with the first gen Macan Turbo that you already have tunes for? Definitely understand there’s differences with the 8 speed versus the Macan’s PDK, but just curious if it’s something on the radar!

    • Hey Ryan,

      We do not currently have plans to develop support for the 958 generation Cayennes, sorry!


  10. Can Cobb verify that the GTS and Turbo are mechanically identical? The transmission part numbers are different and Autoweek suggested the GTS uses a lighter weight ZF than the Turbo. If that’s true, is it possible to get specs from ZF or is there any data on how conservative Porsche is when mating engines to transmissions?

    • Our research has shown no definitive mechanical differences in either the motor or transmission between GTS and Turbo.


    • Hey Erik! The included Off The Shelf Maps do not manipulate that functionality. We are in the process of adding Auto Start/Stop related tables to our Accesstuner Pro software. You would need to reach out to one of our Authorized Porsche Protuners to have a map created with those toggles.
