Coming from the factory with 530hp in the Porsche Turbo S, it was already at a new level of quickness. Having done R&D on a 2010 Turbo PDK and our own 2011 Turbo S PDK, we were familiar with and where the cars strengths and weaknesses were. Even though the Turbo S comes from the factory with 30 more horsepower, there is always more room to improve. Not only looking to make strong power, we also improve the delivery and driveability of the 997 Turbo S throughout the entire RPM range. With our very own 2011 Porsche Turbo S we were able to experience this dramatic change in performance by the ECU Flash. Typically when running the Turbo in Sport Mode, the vehicles throttle response and low end torque is noticed on both the dyno and street, however based on EGT temps, Sport Mode can usually yield lower mid to top end power. The ECU tune is effective in both standard and sport mode. Typically you will see the boost increase to 16psi in standard and 18-19psi in sport. With Sport Mode on, the car spooled up quicker making peak torque at about 400rpm faster. However this then tapered off earlier as usual with cars in Sport Mode. Overall, the substantial increase in performance still retains a comfortable daily driveability experience. The power is there when your foot wants it, but the Porsche never loses its 997 comfortable feeling.

Having had success in the popular tuning chassis' such as the Subaru WRX STI, Mitsubishi EVO, and BMW M3, this was a natural progression of expansion in our repertoire of vehicles.

When the recession came, Vivid Racing continued to grow and focus on the development of it's products, distribution network, and most importantly, its customers. The diversity of vehicle products and services has allowed Vivid Racing to continue to strive for excellence while maintaining exceptional growth.

As the tuning industries tools became more accessible, so has the ability to partner and work with individuals to offer a unique service with added value. Working with several tuning companies over the years, we have experienced the upsides and downsides of the ECU tuning world. As it is our mission to offer unparallelled customer service and support, it is equally important to offer a great product that is tested, convenient to use, and priced within reason for the current demographic. With a Mustang All Wheel Drive Dynamometer in-house at our Gilbert, Arizona facility, we have spent countless hours testing tuned files, the affects of different vehicle modifications, and learning how vehicles react to our changes. But most importantly, our product confidence comes in that we have owned these vehicles, daily driven these vehicles, raced these vehicles, and understand what the consumer is looking for.
