Default Has somebody installed the Cobb tune on a 2017 Macan GTS

Couldn't find anything doing a search in the forum. Or has anybody heard about somebody doing it? How about a custom tune too? Thanks

For me, it's the torque over weight ratio at mid RPM.

No custom tunes available yet. Soon COBB may offer Access Tuner Pro to their preferred dealer network which may lead to some custom calibrations.

COBB concurrently performed the calibration for the GTS at the same time as they did my Macan Turbo. The results were pretty awesome 354HP and 469TQ at the wheels.

over 400lbs of torque from 2500 to 4100 RPMs

Thanks for the data point, it certainly sounds awesome. Can't wait to install it in my GTS soon!

I installed mine. Been driving with it for about 2000 miles It's amazing. No dyno tunes yet, but my butt dyno and people's reactions prove it works!
