Your $895 is better spent on a few track days with professional driving instruction.

But if you simply can't live without 15 more horsepower, go here: Softronic software for 986 Boxster

Fo' Shizzle. Cars are fine, 15 hp isn't going to make much of a difference, but instruction certainly will!

Actually - if you want a big difference, spend that money on a suspension upgrade!
