A closer look. TECHART Powerkit Development.

TECHART TECHTRONIC: Software

TECHART develops individual multidimensional engine maps for every model. This engine maps react dynamically on the relevant parameters such as engine speed, gas pedal position and various engine temperatures. This ensures an intelligent balance of power increase and engine protection in every situation. The results of this first development step then have to undergo severe examination in both, dynamometer tests and on-road/on-track verification.

TECHART TECHTRONIC: Integration

The operation of TECHTRONIC powerkits is intuitive. To activate the permanent power boost, the driver simply switches from NORMAL to SPORT or SPORT PLUS mode by using the standard Sport Button at the center console or the standard Mode Selector at the steering wheel. While in NORMAL mode, the TECHART TECHTRONIC is inactive and the vehicle is operating with its standard power and its standard driving characteristics.

TECHART TECHTRONIC is integrated in the vehicle’s CAN data bus system. Unlike conventional electronic aftermarket power-upgrade devices, TECHTRONIC evaluates not only boost pressure and manifold air pressure, but all measured and monitored data required for a precise, dynamic and quick responding management of engine and drivetrain. Last but not least, TECHART TECHTRONIC does not affect the vehicle diagnostics or the standard electronic engine protection features.

TECHART TECHTRONIC: Results

“The power output of a genuine TECHART powerkit is reliable, durable and repeatable. We do not announce generalized power promises in percentage statements. During the development of the individual engine map, we can predict the maximum power output which will still maintain long-term operation without overstressing engine and drivetrain. This procedure and a power increase rating in absolute numbers is a basic requirement for a EC type approval.” says Moritz Renner, automotive mechatronics engineer at the TECHART development and testing department.

The range of TECHART powerkits offers a wide variety for nearly every Porsche model. Such as the
60 hp / 80 Nm increase for the 911 Carrera S, the 100 hp / 130 Nm enhancement for the Panamera Turbo or even the 180 hp / 170 Nm boost for the Cayenne Turbo, which includes TECHART components in addition to the TECHTRONIC such as high performance TECHART turbo chargers.

TECHART TECHTRONIC: Approval

The EC type approval is mandatory for an easy registration of the powerkit in the vehicle documents. TECHART powerkits are certified in the development process with emission reports conformable to European regulations VO (EG) Nr. 715/2007*692/2008 after the specific engine map is developed. This emission report includes different measuring cycles such as the Type 1 cycle and even the Type 6 cycle for Swiss homologation.

TECHART TECHTRONIC: Installation

The TECHART TECHTRONIC module can be installed quickly by one of the international TECHART distributors or any qualified workshop or service center. Before the installation, the car is inspected and a PIWIS-II vehicle analysis report is made. This documents that the engine is in flawless condition.

TECHART TECHTRONIC: Warranty

The high TECHART quality standards are backed by an extensive TECHART TECHTRONIC warranty which covers relevant vehicle parts including engine and drivetrain. According to the TECHTRONIC warranty terms, customers are secured by up to EUR 75,000.00 in the event of damage.
