Fabspeed Goodies for the Porsche Cayman S
Last week we had a Porsche Cayman S in the workshop as the car was running terribly.
The owner had changed the plugs and coil-packs hoping that it would solve the issue but it hadn’t. After some diagnostics it was apparent that the cats had become blocked. Meaning they had collapsed.
After speaking to Porsche to get a price for the replacement catalyst pipes, the owner of the Porsche did a little bit of homework and found that Fabspeed Motorsport in America did a set of decat pipes that fit. With a set on order within the hour, he patiently waited their arrival from the US of A!
The pipes arrived all packaged up from Fabspeed and they were fitted to the Porsche Cayman S.
With the new cat pipes fitted the engine management light was illuminated. This was due to the air to fuel ratio being altered, so the Porsche headed over to the rolling road for a custom remap.
The Porsche Cayman has naturally aspirated engine, meaning it has no turbocharger. A remap on a naturally aspirated engine won’t increase the bhp of the car by a great amount but it will improve the throttle response and mid-range driveabilty. And of course it will re-calibrate the air to fuel ratio removing the engine management light.
As you can see an improvement in the power with a greater improvement in the torque. And as a billy bonus the car now sounds absolutely amazing thanks to the Fabspeed modification.
We can’t wait for the weather to improve then we can see the Cayman S on track.
