Drivers of the Porsche Cayman R can now enjoy even more power and torque, thanks to the latest ECU remap from global leader Superchips
Superchips has developed the dynamic and sporty Cayman R map to improve the power and torque of the already impressive 3.4 litre naturally aspirated engine.
Leaving the Porsche plant in Stuttgart with 321BHP (325PS) and 370Nm, the Superchips remap adds 18BHP and 19Nm torque. The spread of torque across the RPM range is improved as well, allowing for a smoother and more responsive drive especially at part throttle.
The result is a healthy improvement in driveability combined with much more rewarding performance for drivers who enjoy their time at the wheel. Cruising with the Superchips remap will be more relaxed while the engine will perform much better for spirited driving or overtaking.
The conversion is carried out by one of Superchips nationwide dealer network and typically takes around an hour. Customers can either wait at the dealer or drop off their car and return later to collect.
The RRP (Recommended Retail Price) of the remap is £320 including VAT and labour. The conversion is covered by Superchips’ 12-month/30,000-mile warranty*.

The majority of our day to day work at Superchips involves research and development for new remap products, and ongoing support for existing customers. The combined engineering expertise in the building for working with and modifying cars extends well beyond our 35 year history, and every now and again we’re requested for special projects. Recently, such a project took place after hours on a weekday night, when we were visited by this car – the Porsche 956 as used by Stefan Bellof and Jochen Mass in the 1983 season. This car visited us to perform a shakedown on a freshly rebuilt gearbox, and to prove out 3 seperate ECUs to run the car.
Our workshop is equipped with a Maha LPS3000 dyno, which is more than just a tool for measuring flat out horsepower. It can also be used for part-load testing and simulation of multiple types of simulation work to prove the running capabilities of an engine when fitted to a chassis. In this case, we used the dyno’s “constant speed” mode to dial in a given wheel speed in km/h, which the dyno would then not exceed – the harder the car tries to exceed 120km/h, the more load the dyno applies to the rotating wheels to stop this speed being exceeded. This allowed the gearbox to be safely shifted through the gears with little load, and then have load applied in each gear to ensure no transmission slip. The test ran very successfully, even though at the beginning the newly fitted rear brakes bound up solid, which explains why the car moves around quite a lot in the video below.
We also provided replacement EEPROM chips for the car’s Bosch Motorsport Motronic ECU. Multiple spare ECUs were tested and confirmed working. This gave the car’s owners confidence to run the car over the next few events, and we’ll see some more of the car in the future we’re sure.
Superchips is pleased to unveil a performance raising ECU remap for the 310 PS Porsche Boxster 3.4S, which uses Siemens engine management. The Superchips ECU remap, which takes the form of an OBDII flash delivers a maximum brakehorsepower gain of 19 bhp at 5778 rpm and torque gain of 24 Nm at 5778 rpm, delivering refined extra performance for overtaking, fast cruising or trackdays.
Suitable for both manual and PDK versions of the 310PS Porsche Boxster 3.4S produced from February 2009 onwards, the Superchips performance boosting ECU remap is priced at £249.00 including installation and VAT. The Superchips Porsche Boxster 3.4S ECU upgrade requires installation at one of approximately 80 Superchips performance centres and is covered by a full Customer Service Guarantee and an industry-leading 12 month / 30,000 supplementary full vehicle warranty.*
