BBi in the SpeedHunters' Crosshairs

The BBi guys were participating in some local track days and Trevor was the photographer on duty. Started to chat cars and the Porsche world seemed to pique his interest. Next time Trevor was in town we got together, talked shop, talked builds and he snapped some photos while at it.

Trevor is one of the regular contributors at SpeedHunters where he applies his eye for a well framed shot along with a bit of geeking out with his background in mechanical engineering. It was an absolute pleasure talking to Trevor and we are honored to have BBi profiled by SpeedHunters. We look forward to having him back for some progress updates on the builds and do some deep dives into whys, hows and whats behind each project.

For the time being - head over to SpeedHunters and check out our shop.

Porsche 997.2 Turbo Updates

  • Increased Minimum Shift Points

    • This feature increases the lowest RPM at which the PDK will shift to the next gear in Normal and Sport drive modes.

    • Increased Shift Firmness

      • COBB Sport, COBB Aggressive, and COBB High Torque Aggressive maps raise the shift firmness to help reduce clutch slip.

    • Increased Clutch Pressure

      • COBB High Torque Aggressive maps raise the maximum clutch pressures to help reduce clutch slip after shifting. The COBB High Torque Aggressive map is typically used on vehicles that have an increased engine torque output of 50% or more over stock. A PDK relearn may be required when switching from this map to other COBB maps or uninstalling. PDK Relearn instructions are located below.

    • Minimized Continuous Clutch Slip

      • COBB Sport, COBB Aggressive, and COBB High Torque Aggressive maps decrease the RPM at which the clutch is engaged in continuous slip, generally between 1000-2500RPM.

    • Decreased Shift Time

      • COBB Aggressive maps decrease upshift and downshift time.

    • Summary

      • COBB Sport: Increased minimum shift points, shift firmness increased, and continuous slip decreased.

      • COBB Aggressive: All COBB Sport features plus decreased shift time.

      • COBB High Torque: All COBB Sport features plus increased clutch pressures.
