2010 Porsche Cayenne Diesel by Superchips

Generally, the focus of diesel cars is on fuel economy and not so much on performance, but with a little help from the capable hands of tuners, a diesel car can become what it should have been from the start: a powerful and environmentally friendly machine. Superchips, for instance, has prepared an ECU remap for the 2010 Porsche Cayenne Diesel 3.0 TDI. With their help, the output for the Cayenne has been boosted by up to 47 bhp at 4044 rpm, while the peak torque has been increased by an impressive 82 Nm. The best part about this kit is that, even with increased power, the fuel economy stays exactly the same at just 8.2 liters/100 kilometers (equal to 34.4 mpg imp). In fact, sometimes the fuel economy even improved due to the extra low rev torque available.

The result is quite impressive for a 4,630-pound SUV. The standard Cayenne Diesel 3.0 TDI develops 240 HP, but the Cayenne by Superchips now goes up to 287 HP, which is a little bit closer to the SUV’s gas-powered brother that develops 300 HP.

The Porsche Cayenne Diesel by Superchips is available now for £445 and comes with a 12 month/30,000 supplementary warranty.

Press release

Superchips Ltd, the world’s leader in high performance automotive electronic tuning, is delighted to unveil an ECU remap for the 2010 model Porsche Cayenne 3.0 diesel.

Responding to customer demand for increased low speed torque, Superchips engineers extensively analysed the Porsche’s Bosch EDC17 ECU, finding a number of areas where performance optimisation could occur on the Cayenne’s 2967cc V6 turbo diesel engine without compromising reliability or refinement.

Post installation, the Superchips ECU remap sharpens the Cayenne diesel’s powerplant, resulting in a smoother, more responsive, more exhilarating drive. Power is boosted by up to 47 bhp at 4044 rpm, while torque increases by an impressive 82 Nm (60 lb.ft.) Crucially, for a 2100 kilo SUV, the Superchips ECU remap improves the Cayenne Diesel’s performance from just 1800rpm, enabling swift, relaxed progress for fast road driving, overtaking, load hauling or off roading.

Pleasingly, the Porsche Caynenne’s much praised fuel economy is unaffected by the Superchips ECU remap and in most instances consumption improves due to the extra low rev torque available to the driver.

Installation of the Superchips ECU remap for Porsche Cayenne Diesel Sport models entails customers visiting one of approximately 80 Superchips performance centres, where trained technicians can undertake the remapping procedure.

hmm,. It seems that this car is quite heavy. However, its a good thing that the power output of this car is quite powerful. Well, then is seems to be a awesome aftermarket version.

I wonder if they are still making a production for the Cayenne since the Cajun is already out again in the market. However, this model is quite impressive as well as its performance!

I haven’t heard that they have killed the Cajun..I think its somewhat in hibernation..
I was thinking that they are planning something else for this production..Well, it seems that small version SUV is not a hit after all.

Its just sad that Porsche have already killed the production of Cajun( supposedly the successor of this model). It seems that they have decide to make it alive again and dethrone the Cajun.

Yeah, I agree. They need to reduced the weight of the car and upgrade the engine. I don’t want to drive a car that runs like a hearse!

What the heck! This car is gas guzzler! 8 liter is too much, I bet the weight of the car affect the speed of the car. I bet their a lot of other option in the market.

Laminated acoustic glass has also been used for the windshield and this new-age five-layer glass is remarkable stuff in the way it absorbs a huge amount of sound without adding any weight to the glass itself.

What the heck is wrong with many car companies not selling all their nicer cars in NA?

What an incredible difference. The Cayenne’s appearance has gone from awkward and incomplete to well turned out in the re-design. Again, what a BIG BIG BIG difference as compared with the original. It’s great that they’ve stayed calm, sensible and as a result kept this vehicle looking distinctly like itself instead of changing the appearance into something completely different.

I think the (street) R8 V10 is nonsensical too, but we’ll just have to see for sure when it becomes real.

It is quite likely the ACO will adjust the rules in Le Mans next year to be more like ALMS (IMSA) uses, and the exclusive reign of the Diesels at Le Mans will be over.

well based on porsche they will make the cajun more agile and ease of handling plus the weight will be lessen, and still there are no words about the Performance of the Cajun.

That’s okay with the tuning - but doesn’t explain why Porsche only offers the Cayenne with a V 6 diesel engine, when _even_ VW has the V 8 diesel engine for the Touareg... Shouldn’t it be inversed: Porsche with a V 8 diesel..?

With regard to aaron: I don’t believe that the little "Cajun" will be more powerful than the Cayenne. But it is very probable that it will get the _same_ V 6 diesel - so relative to the weight the minor will be more powerful...

I was thinking about what will happen to the production of the Cajun. I heard that the Porsche will make the Cajun much powerful compare to the Cayenne.
