GIAC is proud to be the first to offer after-market flashing via the OBD2 port for the new Continental DME found in the 2010 Porsche DFI 997.2 Turbo. The GIAC stage one performance software produces a 50-60 horsepower and 50-60 ft-lbs of torque gain over the OEM calibration. GIAC's in-house engineering team developed a rock solid system for installing GIAC software, making the flash process convenient, quick and reliable for all GIAC customers. At any time, GIAC customers can also go back to their GIAC dealer, to have their DME easily restored back to 100% stock.

The new DFI DME is unlike any other used by Porsche . It uses a completely new processor with more speed, memory, and security. GIAC engineers worked tirelessly to adapt this new technology to fit our world class chip switching system and to provide our customers with the only switching option for the new DFI DMEs. Included with the GIAC software flash, the GIAC Handheld Flashloader allows the end user to switch their car back and forth between OEM power settings and the GIAC high performance calibration with a simple click of a button. These modes can be switched even while the engine is running.

GIAC has always strived to be the most thorough calibration house in the after-market for Porsche cars. Early on while developing a software calibration for the 997.2 Turbo, we determined that the OEM diagnostic tool ( the PIWIS ) would not provide enough data to properly tune the vehicle to the performance level it was capable of. Our engineering team therefore set out to create a new, in house, scan tool based on the one we developed for the 997.1 Turbo. This new data acquisition system captures more data at a higher resolution than the OEM tool, with the option to save and export the logs as well. Having the right tools at our disposal were necessary to insure that all pressures, temperatures, detonation values, etc. stayed at or below reasonable levels during product development.

Special thanks also goes to AWE-Tuning and Champion Motorsport for their participation in the development process. They put track miles on their in house cars, drilled ports in their intake, exhaust, and other systems for additional sensor feedback, added driver feedback, and provided some much appreciated hospitality to our visiting engineers.
