Thanks for exact numerics.

Yep, diagnostic cable and touch/visual confirm of WOT/TPS planned at the weekend.

To be honest, the prospect of possibly finding another 10-15 horses appeals more than just knowing the position is correct.

Just ordered one of these too, in theory allows ODB2 diags via WiFi to iPad/iPhone.



Will advise after testing.


Sorry to bring this thread up again.

GT4 were you impressed with that reader?

Yes, but it is not capable of Porsche specific settings, like a Durametic nor its data logging capabilities (although that is just a software change that would allow it).

It is mostly its universality that impressed (and some of the nice skins available to display up to dozens or more sensor outputs from modern engines/vehicle bus).

Gt4 what were you findings re WOT and cable stretch ?

It is something I've not looked into on the 993 yet but on older BMWs it is a common issue along with the internal wire lubrication degrading.

It is usually an easy visual check that WOT is being achieved and the throttle body connection will allow a certain degree of adjustment to account for stretch before a new cable is needed. I assume this is the case for the 993? It is something I will check when I'm back in the UK

Also did you keep the original mod to lift the peddle? Or revert it back due to any adverse effect on the cars reading of the pedal position as implied above ?

Not sure how moving the pedal OFF position can affect the TB/fuelling sensor.

The engine (DME) is only aware of any movement AT the engine end when the cable is moved (I haven't changed the stops or detents) - I could take the pedal off and it wouldn't know.

I have left mod as is, as I detected no over strain or over reach to the cable, either via cable tension or at TB lever angle on back of engine.

There is still a chance the cable is still under pulling (due to suspected stretch), but the at-pedal mod was meant for heel-and-toe benefits, so as I don't drive WOT, it makes little difference if it is still only achieveing 97% (so I haven't spent much time on that aspect).

One presumes that any change I have made inside the maximum parameters tends closer to true WOT.

I wouldn't change it (YMMV)

Others have complained it is not compatible with the 200 cell cats for emissions or that it has even damaged (burnt) the cats.

But then that is mixing two non-OEM mods, so there can be no guarantee on their compatibility.

I was privileged enough to try three different maps (chips) and chose the one I liked (performed) best.

So in a way it was tailored to my cars parameters, albeit by trial and error.

MOT in May was fine.

My god it has grunt now: the Varioram kick feels almost like a turbo kicking in and it genuinely gets quicker over 5k rpm.

Yep, mentioned that in the first line obliquely (YMMV) and more specifically in the second para.

Sorry, just didn't want you to think I had glossed over that, and I also tried to *guess* the possible reasons for the variable results from the chip + cats.

YMMV = (horrible Americanism) "Your Mileage May Vary"

ie you may get different results

PS - is your's a VR?

So you can't have the same map as me?

(even discounting the 1 in 3 VR maps "choice")

You should be running a non-VR map.

I have one sitting in my bed side table that I've never installed in case anyone wants it half price... I have 200cell cats so I've been hesitant to install it, but if others are have standard cats and are comfortable with the risk let me know and it is yours. I'm going to get a Wayne remap so I wont have any use for it.

Otherwise I might just stick it on ebay, if I get around to it.

Hi Cambjones

Do you know what the rev limit is set at on your chip? I have one in mine at the moment that clashes with my Tiptronic box up changes. i.e. the limit is a little low.

I wonder if the Tips use a different chip? I thought not.

Hey Berni, I have no idea. Do you know how I would tell? I have never installed it either. You are more than welcome to try mine out if you like.

I'm pretty sure he has specific chips for specific cars though...

PostPosted: Mon Jan 13, 2014 12:29 pm    Post subject: Reply with quote

Back to the battery cut off - in this months (Feb 14) 911 and P World mag there is a tried and tested article on a 993 (page 115) where the author (consultant editor Chris Horton)states it has a battery cut off fitted "correctly to the postive battery cable"

All the sources i would find online state that the battery cut off should be fitted to the negative terminal.

Who is right?

BTW - mine is fitted to negative as is GT4´s.....

Dont know
