Our Fort Collins tuning and repair shop has decades of experience in tuning up Porsche and other luxury vehicles to run beautifully and rise to the level of performance for your needs. We work with car owners to figure out the vision you have for your vehicle and to help turn that dream into a living, driving reality.
What are the best modifications for a Porsche?
We love working with Porsche owners. Most of the owners we work with have great taste in cars and a dedication to high-quality work; they’re invested in and knowledgeable about the automotive world and want the best. That includes repairs and regular maintenance, as well as tuning and mechanical upgrades to take driving performance to the next level, calibrating the car to drive at its best.
Ultimately, your choice of Porsche modifications has a lot to do with you as a driver and what you’re looking for. But we’re going to explore five of the most common requests we get for upgrading Porsches and doing right by these incredible cars.
1. Suspension upgrades
Suspension modifications are a popular choice among Porsche owners. But we’ve seen our fair share of Porsches with suspension modifications done wrong: the car dropped way too low to the ground, all for the aesthetic, possibly compromising the car’s handling. This kind of bad suspension job throws everything out of alignment, not to mention, it also wears out the tires way too fast. Botched suspension upgrades and misalignment are a shame to see, especially on such a high-quality performance vehicle. These
cars deserve better.
And better is out there. Suspension upgrades are available that can tweak the handling of your ride and give you the driving experience you know you can get out of your Porsche.
If you’re interested in upgrades to the suspension in your Porsche, you want an experienced sports car tuner who knows how to not only choose the right system for your vehicle; but also how to install it with precise alignment. We can help you find a compatible fit for your car, whether you’re looking for improved handling from factory equipment or a change in ride height. Whatever effect you’d like to achieve, we can accomplish it while keeping the entire car in mind, ensuring everything works together seamlessly like the well-oiled machine your Porsche is.
2. Exhaust and tailpipe upgrades
Tailpipe upgrades for Porsches are a popular choice for modification, with many sports car owners who want to upgrade their tailpipes to increase airflow and reduce the weight. We can help you select the right parts to encourage incredible engine performance. Sports exhaust systems and sports tailpipes are tailored specifically for an upgraded driving experience. Intake, intercooler, and other components work together to keep the car running beautifully.
Looking for that satisfying rumble? We can help you select a muffler modification for your Porsche that lets the car have that signature, throaty Porsche purr… but without waking up half the neighborhood. In fact, there are even Porsche exhaust systems that can switch between standard street driving and sports car modes, so you can show off when the time is right, then switch to a style more suited for regular road driving. It’s performance at the push of a button.
3. Engine control module (ECU) programming
Today’s sports cars are just as much computer as they are machine. Porsches are no exception, which is why you want to look for a tuning shop that keeps abreast of developments in technology and in the automotive world.
With your Porsche’s engine, it’s not just about the specific engine installed, but also about the ECU telling it how to run effectively. The Porsche ECU works to improve engine performance, and modifications are available to tweak the way it runs to prime your car for specific styles of driving. Our team will work work with you to tune your ECU for optimal performance.
4. Brake tuning
If you’re modifying your Porsche for speed, you’ll want to be sure the brakes can keep up. Our team can ensure your braking system is able to handle the needs of your sports car, with the proper pads that won’t wear through too quickly, as well as cooling systems to keep brakes from overheating.
Brakes are a system, and tuning Porsches to stop fast without overheating requires a full understanding of how that system works. High-performance ceramic brakes and ceramic-coated discs give the ultimate brake performance with long-lasting results. The right brake pads and cooling systems helps ensure that the brakes allow your car to stop on a dime and that everything lasts as long as possible.
5. Tire upgrades
Swapping out the tires on your Porsche is one of the most effective ways to change the way the car drives. It’s where the rubber meets the road, literally.
Our local Colorado Springs sports car mechanics know Porsches and the conditions around Poudre Valley. They can advise you on the best tires to keep the wheels spinning smoothly in the particular style of driving and conditions you need. Check in with us about all-season tires, winter weather driving, racing tires, and more.
