The 996 Turbo has evolved in many ways from the original tuners modifying stock turbos to those bolting full on Garrett system. This map was developed for those running a Garrett GT2860rs turbocharger with Tial external wastegates or the actual Tial GT2860 turbochargers. The map is designed to run using 60lb injectors and an electronic boost controller. Inconjunction with corresponding mods, this ECU tune will take your vehicle up to 700HP to the crank. Modifications should be consulted with a installer. The tuned file is designed to eliminate the factory boost controller and raise the factory boost cut from 1.3bar to 1.6bar. For those running catless race pipes, VR Tuned raises the O2 limiters which trick the computer from throwing a CEL. This map is available for a 91 octane or 93 octane pump gas car as well.
As tested on a 2001 996TT 6spd, this car made 564awhp and 608ft/lbs of torque on a Mustang AWD dyno. With a 25% drivetrain loss, that is a 705hp to the crank. The car was equipped with Tial 44mm external wastegates, GT2860rs turbos, high flow exhaust system, boost hoses, cold air intake, diverter valves, intercooler pipes, 60lb injectors, and running 1.4bar on 109octane race gas.

Having had success in 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. As the tuning market boomed extensively in the early 2000s, Vivid Racing established a very strong presence online and throughout vehicle communities. When the recession came, Vivid Racing continued to grow and focus on the development of its 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. ECU tuning has always been an extremely important part of modifying and building vehicles. This is essentially the glue that brings the performance out of aftermarket products and packages. With this next stage in the companies footprint, VR Tuned was proudly launched in January 2014.
As the tuning industry’s 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 unparalleled 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 effects 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.
Vivid Racing has been in business since 2001 and has worked with customers all over the world. In 2005, Vivid Racing started out in the Porsche market with its 2000 Porsche 996 Carrera.
