The famed German Porsche tuning company is at it again, but this time working their magic over the Porsche Cayenne S Diesel. In a Feb. 27 press release, the company announced its plans for a new power kit. Creatively named the TechArt Power Kit TA 058/SD2, it is a new version of the TechArt Power Kit TA 058/SD1.
The TA 058/SD1 is based on the 2013 model of the Porsche Cayenne S Diesel, boosting total power from the 4.2-liter V8 from 382 hp to 420 hp and torque from 627 ft-lbs to 700 ft-lbs. Being a simple ECU tune, TechArt promises quick and easy installation of the engine modification, and the vehicle servicing remains unaffected.
The TA 058/SD2, also based on the 4.20-liter V8, will see a power increase to 460 hp and 738 ft-lbs of torque. Performance specs of the standard model stand at 5.7 seconds to 62 mph and a top speed of 157 mph. The TA 058/SD2 ups performance to 4.9 seconds to 62 mph and a 165 mph top speed.
