The engine produces 600 horsepower and 800+ Nm (589+ lb-ft) of torque from upgraded turbos.

    Before people wonder, in Romania (and Europe as a whole), that Porsche V8 will be easier and cheaper to source and to maintain than your typical grey import US LS or VK, and it was offered as TT from factory (compared to other typical swap options like N/A BMW or Merc V8s). First gen Cayennes sold like sliced bread, and many already ended up on the scrapheaps.

        Biggest issue I see is the availability of standalone ECUs, as running these of the standard one won’t be easy outside of the Cayenne…so much stuff splicing into the ECU and throwing codes when it’s not there. I know a bit about Megasquirt wiring but thats about it regarding ECUs.
