Gemballa Performance Chip Tune ~ 320 HP

Does anyone have any information regarding Gemballa tuning? I saw an ad for a 2000 s that had been given their treatment, and the seller claims 320 hp. Is that possible?

Not remotely possible.

Absolutely. If you put the sticker on the rear window you gain 10 more.

Doing some extensive googling, I've found two GEMBALLA 986 cars claiming 320hp. One is a twin turbo 3.4l, the other is a 3.6l.

I can't find anything claiming a chip / tune gets you that sort of hp.

All of the tunes that I've seen on a stock 986 added 5%-7% above stock horsepower. Any claim of 10% or more for a 986 is highly suspect.

Seemingly possible coupled with a Turbo or Supercharger

If it's been desnorkled and has a red clip that's at least +25HP right there!


In all seriousness, a chip by itself would not come anywhere close to that kind of increase.
