Softronic is proud to announce that we have successfully completed a Race Plenum package for the new 3.4 liter DFI Cayman S and Boxster S (2009-2011), and for a limited time we will be offering this package here, to Planet-9 members, for $1,895.
Modern day Porsche engines are highly sophisticated. They're controlled by an equally sophisticated computer that Porsche calls a DME (Digital Motor Electronics). The DME controls the engine's ignition timing, fuel mixture, cam timing, cam overlap, intake manifold tuning, exhaust tuning, throttle response and much more. The DME contains millions of bytes of code and many 3 dimensional timing and mixture control maps. Softronic has been tuning and enhancing this code for years. Our DME flashes are improved versions of the original Porsche code designed to improve throttle response, fuel mileage and overall performance throughout the operating range and under all driving conditions. We are constantly looking for ways to improve the way your car runs and our packages represent years of development and expertise.
During development we found that this new engine responds nicely to intake and tuning enhancements. By applying proven tuning practices we have achieved a gain of 25 RWHP on an otherwise stock Cayman S. We suspect that with a free flowing exhaust system that owners will see close to or in excess of 40 horsepower.
Softronic never asks you to pull the DME out of your car. We provide you with everything you need to upload our software packages from the driver's seat. Softronic packages are also upgradeable. If you trade your Porsche in for a new Porsche, we will happily apply your purchase price, minus a $100 transfer fee, to a new Softronic package.
Softronic uses many original Porsche parts ensuring factory quality, reliability and acceptance. This package includes the following:
- 82 mm Porsche Throttle Body
- Custom Softronic distribution pipe
- Porsche 2 Stage Performance Plenum
- Custom Softronic DME Flash (vehicle and package specific)
- Durametric Enthusiast Cable & Software
- All hoses and hardware needed for installation
The DFI manifolds install can be a little tricky to work on, so we recommend professional installation or installation by those who are very proficient in auto repair. Note: The dyno was run on a complete stock Cayman DFI with 93 octane that had 15% Ethanol.

Questions and Answers:
Q. Can I pass on the Durametric software and get a lower price?
A. No. The DFI engines will report an error after flashing. You will need the Durametrics software to clear this error.
Q. I already have a Durametric cable. Can I pass on the cable and save money?
A. There may be an opportunity, please call Softronic to determine if your cable can be used. Don't buy a used cable. Durametric cables will work on the first three cars they're plugged into. Try to plug it into a 4th and it won't work. You have no idea how many other cars a used cable has been plugged into.
Q. Will this modification void my warranty?
A. Hard to say. Though it's illegal to void a warranty on a car based on the installation of an aftermarket accessory, dealerships can block coverage on a warranty claim if they feel an aftermarket accessory has caused the problem. Please check with your dealership to see how they feel about DME flashes.
Q. Can I sell or transfer my Softronic package to another Porsche owner?
A. No. Our Update/Upgrade/Transfer policy pertains ONLY to the original purchaser. Our software packages are vehicle specific. The only way you can sell your Softronic package to another owner is if you sell them your entire car.
Q. Can I use a MAC to flash my car?
A. Yes, as long as it's an Intel based MAC that can boot up in Windows.
Q. Can I use Durametric software to clear my over-revs?
A. No. Durametric software will allow you to read your over-revs. It will not allow you to change them.
Q. Will a Softronic Plenum Package effect my gas mileage?
A. Yes. If driven the same way, you are likely to experience improved fuel efficiency with Softronic packages. Most Softronic customers report an increase of approximately 2 MPG.
Q. Will I pass emission testing with a Softronic Flash in my car.
A. Yes. Softronic flashes focus on clean efficient combustion. Most states check emissions through the OBDII port. That means if you don't have a check engine light, you car will pass. In states where exhaust gasses are sampled, a Softronic car will still pass.
Q. Do I need an live Internet connection for reading and/or flashing?
A. Yes. Your computer must be able to connect to our servers for both operations (reading and writing). WiFi wireless internet works well for this. We've had customers read and write files from a local Starbucks parking lot.
Q. Can I flash my car using an air card?
A. This is not recommended. Air cards and/or cellular phone tethers can introduce noise and/or distortion during data transfer.
Q. Once I read out my stock file, how long does it take for you to deliver my modified file?
A. We strive to modify and deliver flash files within 24 business hours. Please make sure you provide your name and e-mail address. We will send the modified and original file to the e-mail address you provide.
Q. Will I receive Durametric Software on CD?
A. No. We will send you a Durametric cable that will be registered for your use. Once you receive your cable, simply download the Durametric Software from the Durametric Website. You must download version 6.XXX to erase faults etc.
