997.1 turbo->bhp tuning Weilheim a.d.Teck (+65PS)

  • Hello .

    The search didn't turn up anything.

    I would like to give my 997.1 turbo (2008, 50tkm) a little more power.

    The above mentioned tuner offers about 45hp by chip tuning.

    As this company is "around the corner" from me, but I don't know them, I wanted to ask you whether I can bring my "sports car" there with a clear conscience (without the engine blowing up (or similar) after xxxxx :wink: kilometers)?


    Thank you

  • Bhp do a serious job and know what they are doing. Develop themselves and don't take data sets from other sources. Have had two vehicles with them so far and driven almost 40k on one without any problems (6 GC 450 on 500+ hp). Regards Axel

  • Hello Axel.

    Thank you.


    Another question comes to mind.

    Bhp advertises an insurance for their work (399Euro/24months).

    a) Is this necessary/useful?

    b) is only the tuning itself insured or also other components that could be destroyed by the tuning (who assesses the causality in this case?)

    c) if the work carried out by bhp is safe and problem-free, what is the point of this insurance?

  • My attitude towards insurance companies is clear: they want to make money and speculate on the anxiety of their customers....

    I didn't take out any insurance when I upgraded. Too many restrictions and if something really happens, you have to come to an agreement with the insurance company. You are usually the loser, as you have the short end of the stick (as a layman). If I remember correctly, only parts of the engine are insured and then only to a limited extent. The amount of the premium is also calculated according to the vehicle and mileage. That would have been around €800 for me. As I'm not a riot driver and take care of my cars, I was happy to take the risk of not taking out insurance. I've generally done well with it. Regards Axel

  • Supplement: of course, it still depends on the car. If the identical engine is installed ex works in different performance levels, the potential for an upgrade is easy to estimate. E.g. the 3l from the 991/2... This reduces the risk even further ;)

    It is the Mezger engine (480hp, 997.1 turbo).

    So it should easily take the 65hp, right?

  • I think so. If anyone is stable, it's this engine :thumbsup:

    You can also ask Frank (@frank-996). He is a Mezger specialist. You'll be in good hands with him if you have any questions.

  • You're right about that.

    Frank is an expert - I know that very well.

    However, he certainly (understandably) wants to sell his(!) tuning himself.

    I'd do it in a heartbeat - but he's just so far away from me.


    It would be the same if I went to a specialist dealer to find out about a product and enjoy the specialist knowledge and then buy it online.

    I would never do that (and I certainly wouldn't take advantage of Frank!).


    Thanks to you again though!
