2019+ Macan S / 2020 + Macan Turbo/GTS Intake:
Just a quick update, we're still in the design/development phase. Unfortunately, we couldn't "reuse" much of the design from the existing intake system as Porsche did just enough to make that impossible. We're developing an entirely new air filter with larger diameter outlet to help promote air velocity with the new turbo inlet piping. The intake system will come with a carbon fiber plate to mesh and seal the airbox (shown below in 3D printed material) and the duct on top of the box will have to be reworked but be very similar to our existing carbon ducts. So more carbon fiber! I don't have final pricing but expect it to slot between the existing 2.0 and the V6 offerings for the 2015-2018 model.

Special Limited Edition - Gloss Carbon Fiber Ducts (2015-2018 Macan S/GTS/Turbo)
We've had a few folks ask so we are making a limited run of 5 sets of gloss carbon fiber ducts. They will not be available for the 2.0 but if you are interested in securing an exclusive one-time set, please let us know.

Niche Technologies Macan Convenience Module:
We have some units heading here and will be testing their product. We plant to get a video up showcasing the product and it's features along with an install guide. The module provides some nice features like trunk closing from the key-fob, full closure, close the trunk while driving, mirror folding, PCM mute, drive mode memory (beta) and more. We plan to become their North American distributor so should have stock ready to ship shortly.

2015-2018 Macan S/GTS/Turbo Downpipes:
For anyone interested in installing a set of downpipes, our friends at Soul Performance Products have offered us a free set to a client who is interested in having them installed and provide some picture/video. If you are interested please contact us at [email protected] for more details.

A few small updates:

We're working on some more video content that we should have available in the next 4-6 weeks. We'll be showcasing a few products on the Macan and also have some tips.

On the product development side, we continue development on the 19+ S / 20+ Turbo & GTS Intake System. We'll be soliciting volunteers in the Charlotte, Orlando or Philadelphia areas to test fit and dyno validate. We're still some ways out but if you're interested, please let us know. The new cover/door that is integrated with the OEM filter now is proving to be a bit more complicated than we thought. Porsche did us no favors on the redesign. We're working with some manufacturers to determine material for the part and have the new filter ready. The filter will insert into this cover/door and slide into the airbox. The factory filter has this element integrated into one piece where ours will feature 2 pieces as we're not producing a 100K+ like Porsche's supplier :)

We have prototyped the product with a 3D printed version. We don't have any performance or dyno data yet but as we have a production sample will collect that and share. The circumference of the style inlet is much bigger than the first generation Macan. This promotes greater mass air volume to the larger single turbo on the new S and provides sufficient flow for the new 2.9L V6 TT. We've found a way to promote faster & smoother air velocity into the turbo inlet with the prototype. This should bold well for making power but too early to call.



We're also working on an Upgraded Diverter Valve for the 19+ S / 20+ Turbo & GTS. Porsche utilized a new electronic solenoid design so it's a bit more complicated. We'll be offering an upgrade that includes a new OEM housing with upgraded piston and spring rate. We're considering a core program but not sure if we have all the testing equipment to be effective at that yet. The Turbo and GTS use 2 valves and OEM parts aren't cheap which is why we're exploring the core charge concept to keep cost down. We're pretty excited about this as there are noticeable improvements with the prototype but logging more miles as of now. Install is pretty simple (a lot easier than the first generation Macan - no bumper removal needed).


We also have a few other development projects ongoing but nothing substantial to share at this time. We're hoping to have the products above available in the next ~90-120 days.

Just a small update, we have moved our 2019+ S / 2020+ GTS/Turbo Intake into production. We still need to validate the final production prototype but should be to market in about 2 months. We will be releasing more information shortly. It's been quite an effort. We will only be offering it as an intake system as the sum of the parts are more complicated than the 15-18 Macan (where we offer a filter, duct or intake). The system will feature a new high flow air filter, carbon fiber airbox panel and carbon fiber duct that is open like our existing Macan Intake. All of those parts are completely unique to the new Macan so required a lot of engineering and testing. More details to follow, we are targeting a price point below our current V6 price, so expect $430-$460. It actually uses a lot of carbon fiber so we are doing everything we can to keep the cost down.

We're also in the process of building out our new studio & lounge facility in the Orlando, FL area. So anyone local there or with plans to visit when the world returns to normal, stay tuned for an announcement.

Our new facility will drastically enhance our ability to capture and produce more video content. We're looking forward to bringing more insights to this community in the near future. We also have a few other projects for the Macan but with everything else going on, we've had to delay a few things. We are committed to this platform and look to add more value in the discussion and with new solutions in the future. I also wanted to thank everyone in this community who has purchased parts from us. Whether it's our own product line or any of our 85+ vendors that we offer, every sale helps fund future product development for the Macan.

Didn't realize you guys were in Central Florida. Can you do Cobb dyno tuning at the Orlando facility?

We plan to soft open in August but likely won't have everything up and running until September. We will do installs/tuning and working on the dyno now. We're in the Sanford area.

A few small updates on the facelifted Macan (19+ S / 20+ GTS / Turbo):

  • The facelift intakes should be available in the next 2 months
  • We are working on some performance kits for the 19+ S which include an upgraded bolt-on turbo (~525hp), downpipe and turbo inlet pipe along with tuning. Much more testing to go but more coming soon (these projects take a while) but the possibility of 500+ HP Macan S for ~$6-8K is our target (all inclusive).
  • We're continuing to look at intercoolers as well
  • Tuning availability for the S and Turbo will be available soon. We are still soliciting some volunteers to validate compatibility among the ECU versions. Dynos coming soon. This is a flash tune and the ECU will need to be mailed to Flat 6 to unlock and apply the tune.
  • We scrapped the diverter valve upgrade on the facelifted Macan (too many complications with the electronics). However, when doing some development, we had the idea of a spacer kit that would convert the DV to a BOV, so it would create the blow off noise. We generally focus more on performance items, but if this product is of interest to folks, let us know and we can move forward with design/production. Target would be ~$85, they'd be CNC machined aluminum, include o-rings and bolts, etc. (anodized in black)

Just wanted to shout out to Jon for another great product along with excellent customer service.
As soon as I saw this thread on gloss carbon intake ducts I had to have them to matc side blades and interior trim.

DV to BOV is interesting to me...as long as no codes would be created from ECU freaking out 'looking' for that lost air.

Keep me posted on this little project!

And pretty cool that you are relatively local to me. Would be interested in possibly being a test mule for you...

A few quick updates on the intake system. We will have some dyno data once we get the first production samples in and installed in the coming weeks (we're finalizing our move to FL over the next 10 days...only 3 trips left!). We're expecting a release of the intake system for the 95B.2 sometime in mid-late August. We also have some very exciting news on a new product line for the 19+ Macan S that will peak a lot of interest I believe. We'll be offering a full suite of tuning along with the intake, downpipe and turbo upgrade kit.

On to the intake, I probably have hinted but this is a very complex part. Porsche made some tweaks to the new airbox (19+ S / 20+ GTS & Turbo) where we couldn't reuse a single part from our existing intake solution. This meant we had to develop something from the ground up all over again and there are a lot of interesting little nuances to the new airbox along with different airflow characteristics. I'll post pictures of the first air filter tomorrow but wanted to show you the carbon duct and cover. Since the cover is necessary for the filter, we will not be offering the new intake as sub-components like we do for the 15-18 Macan. It will be one SKU and include everything for all V6 Macans (95B.2).

Please note, this is raw carbon fiber without a top coat on it and the silver aluminum inserts will come anodized in black on the product.

We have not but we can take a look and see roughly what something like that would look like. That would be a big piece of carbon!
You want to make some serious coin? Offer a CF engine cover with a personalized engine cover plate where it says 'V6'... Worse case, just offer a CF overlay to go over the V6 engine cover trim plate and allow customers to personalize theirs.

I would love to have this BOV feature on my 15 Macan S. Sign me up!
