What is Softronic’s Experience in tuning Porsche ECU’s?
Based out of Connecticut, Softronic has been working with Porsche systems for nearly 30 years. From street cars to race cars, Softronic has involved itself in all types of motorsports to stay consistantly involved in the industry. Having cutting edge technology not only makes the ECU Tuning process more efficient, it also makes it more accurate. Softronic has been the technical advisor for the Porsche Club of America (PCA) for several years as well. One of the main functions that Softronic serves is data checking of Porsche Motorsports vehicles for race teams. Reading out the binary code and checking data allows Softronic to gain OEM insight into the vehicles brain unit and of course, a fair playing field for race regulations. In the tuner market focusing on street cars, Softronic has gained a very solid name. As a sponsor for both Planet Porsche and 6speedonline forums, Softronic customers are plentiful with success. Some of the fastests cars are tuned in cooperation with Softronic. Everything from 1000HP 996 Turbos to daily driving Porsche 987 Cayman’s. Softronic focuses on the driveability, reliability, and convenience in tuning your vehicle.

Do I have to take my car somewhere to flash it?
No! The entire purpose of the Softronic software is that it is very easy to do. You can do it in the comfort of your own garage at your convenience. All you need is the provided Client Cable, a windows based Laptop, and an internet connection. Softronic wants to empower the end user to not have to go to a shop and have the flash installed. The simplicity of the instructions we have put on our Installation Page will have you done with the process in only an hour time.

How much will the Softronic ECU Flash cost?
Softronic has ECU flashes for almost every 911 Porsche and Cayman/Boxster. Because of the complexity of some of the cars, the files are more expensive. Prices range from $895 to $5895 depending on the vehicle. Most flashes for the Turbocharged cars are around $2000. All of our flashes include the price of the Client Cable which is a $150 value. Check out our Product Pages to see what a flash for your vehicle will do to your car and how much it costs.

If I add an exhaust or intake, do I need to reflash my car?
No. Softronic tunes off the factory knock and oxygen sensors. They also go through and tune each individual table. Unlike others that do a global change to files, Softronic enables the ECU to adapt to basic bolt-on modifications like exhaust, intake, headers, etc. The only time you need to re-reflash your vehicle is when you change fuel components, turbo sizes, or engine internals.

Why do I have to have an internet connection to flash my car?
Softronic stores all vehicle information by VIN. As well, the ECU’s are all VIN coded. You cannot simply pull an ECU out of your buddies car and plug it into yours. The easiest way to maintain the file integrity and ensure proper data is entered, we have the files automatically sent to our server. Once we receive the file, we then alter it to your tuned file and have it coded for your VIN and IMOB codes so you can then reupload it to your car. This way your file is yours and only yours.

Does it matter if I have 91, 93, or other octane fuel?
Yes it does actually. We have different files based upon your pump gas usage. A customer that normally gets 91 octane at the pump would not want a 93 octane map. The 93 octane map has more advanced timing to deal with the better gasoline. Your car would knock and ping then then ECU would pull timing. Softronic’s ability to have the ECU only works in the positive direction with octane. If you have a 93 octane map for example and put 100 or 109 race gas in the car, the ECU will adjust and your vehicle will run much better. The higher the octane, the more power you will make. Make sure to let us know when doing your flash upload what octane gas you get at the pump.

How do you compare Softronic to the other companies?
That is a good question that we can answer honestly. Softronic uses actual Bosch tools from Porsche to do the ECU flashing. Other companies have had to reverse engineer the system to be able flash the cars. This system does not always flash the entire vehicles parameters. Because Softronic is so involved with motorsports and data checking, they have seen almost all others flash code by checking the binary data. In the end, many customers have their allegiance to certain tuners. We know that Softronic has the most convenient, in-depth, tuning package available for Porsche right now. Our Software out performs our competitors in real world scenarios and is designed to ensure your vehicle is safe and fun.
