ACCESSPORT TUNING FOR PORSCHE PDK TRANSMISSIONS

The COBB Porsche Team is excited to bring a world’s first to the Porsche enthusiast community, PDK Tuning! For the past few years our Porsche Team has spent thousands of hours perfecting their understanding of a variety of both naturally aspirated and turbocharged Porsche engines. We have had our hand in claiming numerous 1/4 Mile and 1/2 Mile records along with supporting class winning teams in the IMSA Continental Sports Car Challenge Series and Pikes Peak International Hill Climb.

The idea of offering custom tuning for Porsche’s PDK transmission was conceived late last year by our COBB Porsche reverse engineering team. With the ability to tune a vehicle’s engine at almost all power levels well sorted, it was now time to investigate methods of putting that new-found power to the ground more efficiently.

After thousands of in-house testing hours on various vehicles of all trims as well as some grueling development time spent at the 2017 Pikes Peak International Hill Climb, we are extremely pleased to now offer PDK Transmission tuning support including PDK Accesports, PDK OTS Maps, PDK Relearn and updated ECU OTS maps for the following Porsche vehicles:

Gaining access to PDK Tuning can come in two ways. First, existing Accessport owners can upgrade current Accessports with PDK compatible firmware. In order to begin that process, contact our Customer Support Team at 1-866-922-3059 or support@cobbtuning.com. Once the upgrade is purchased, a firmware update key will be sent to the Accessport owner to be applied to the Accessport via Accessport Manager.

The second method to obtaining PDK Tuning capabilities is to purchase one of two new Accessport part numbers that will come with PDK Tuning enabled.

Porsche 991 Turbo PDK

  • Increased Minimum Shift Points
    • This feature increases the lowest RPM at which the PDK will shift to the next gear in Normal and Sport drive modes.

Normal Mode:

Sport Mode:

Increased Auto Shift Points

  • This feature increases the highest RPM at which the PDK will shift to the next gear in Normal, Sport, and Sport Plus drive modes.
    • 991 Turbo
      • COBB Sport increases the auto shift limit to Turbo S factory shift RPM.
      • COBB Aggressive and COBB High Torque Aggressive maps increase the auto shift limit to a maximum of 7400RPM.
    • 991 Turbo S
      • COBB Sport does not increase the auto shift limit on the Turbo S.
      • COBB Aggressive and COBB High Torque Aggressive maps increase the auto shift limit to a maximum of 7400RPM.

  • Race Start Lite:
    • This adds Race Start to Porsche Normal and Sport drive modes for all cars (including vehicles that do not have Sport Chrono). In COBB Sport, COBB Aggressive, and COBB High Torque Aggressive maps Race Start Lite is set at 4500RPM in Normal and Sport drive modes. Race Start in Sport Plus remains at the factory 5500RPM.
  • Increased Shift Firmness
    • COBB Sport, COBB Aggressive, and COBB High Torque Aggressive maps raise the shift firmness to help reduce clutch slip.
  • Increased Clutch Pressure
    • COBB High Torque Aggressive maps raise the maximum clutch pressures to help reduce clutch slip after shifting. The COBB High Torque Aggressive map is typically used on vehicles that have an increased engine torque output of 50% or more over stock. If the COBB High Torque Aggressive map is flashed to the TCU a PDK Relearn must be completed when changing maps back to COBB Sport, COBB Aggressive, Simulated Stock, or when uninstalling. Failure to do so may result in less than desirable shifting and/or TCU errors. PDK Relearn instructions are located below.
  • Minimized Continuous Clutch Slip
    • COBB Sport, COBB Aggressive, and COBB High Torque Aggressive maps decrease the RPM at which the clutch is engaged in continuous slip, generally between 1000-2500RPM.
  • Summary
    • COBB Sport: Increased minimum shift points, Race Start Lite enabled, shift firmness increased, and continuous slip decreased.
    • COBB Aggressive: All COBB Sport features plus increased maximum shift points.
    • COBB High Torque Aggressive: All COBB Sport and COBB Aggressive features plus increased clutch pressures.
