PORSCHE MACAN DEVELOPMENT - NEW TABLES, MORE POWER!
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.
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.
MACAN S GAINS:
The dyno graph below shows the significant gains seen on our shop Macan S with an updated v202 OTS map.
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.

COBB Tuning, known by the tagline "Access The Potential" is an American company providing aftermarket automobile tuning services. Founded in 1999 by Trey Cobb at Rockwall, they are now headquartered at Austin, Texas.
COBB focus on European brands such as BMW, Porsche and VW, also Japanese manufacturers such as Mazda, Mitsubishi and Nissan. They are specialized in modifying mechanical components like turbo kits, exhaust system and suspension to electronic parts and ECU management. COBB hit the market strong using one of the first hand held units (Accessport) to access the cars performance potential.
AccessPORT, a handheld ECU programming device which connected to OBD-II port on cars, launched in 2004 is their most popular product because it is the first one to crack Nissan GT-R's ECU code that was said as "untuneable". They also develop a software for engine tuning, AccessTUNER which is available in two variants: Race and Pro. The Pro version is available only to COBB approved shops and tuners. The enthusiast 'Race' version is available to the end user only after they pass a series of tests issued by COBB and third party organisations to deem the end user competent enough to begin editing their ECU's parameters.
