Porsche Cayenne 3.0 TDI: Review of the TechArt Tech9 mod

Porsche Cayenne 3.0 TDI
Nice review here of the TechArt Tech9 which is based on the Porsche Cayenne 3.0 TDI.

Tech9 will offer a Techart power upgrade for £2500, but the conversion we’re trying is Tech9’s Expedio, which works on the same kind of principles. It costs £1800, and, just like the Techart tweaks, boosts power from 237bhp and 405lb ft to 290bhp and at least 472lb ft and has been independently proven to hit 62mph in 6.9sec – 1.4sec quicker than standard.
Is it ferociously rapid?

Ferocious, no. Rapid, yes. The standard car is pretty lethargic, infuriatingly so during overtakes and on short slip roads. Expedio brings a plumper hit of torque between 2000 and 3500rpm, a proper kick in the back that better befits the Porsche badge and brings some much-needed flexibility. Yes, it’s still a little thin and hardworked between 3500 and 4500rpm, but keeping it in the powerband is instinctive enough.
