Default PDK: Turbo S vs. GT3 vs. 918

I have been trying to find out the shift speed difference between the Turbo S, GT3 and the 918. From the service manual, the 918 shifts at less than 50ms in Race mode, which makes it the fastest PDK from Porsche.

I also know that from the GT3 service manual, the GT3 PDK shifts 60% faster than a standard 911 Carrera PDK at around 100ms.

But there is no info on the Turbo/Turbo S PDK shift speed. So if anybody can shed a light on this, it would be greatly appreciated!

I believe the TT/TTS PDK is the same gearbox / programming as the 911 Carrera.

Don't think so. It's the same gearbox with different ratios, but the programming is vastly different on the Turbo/Turbo S compared to the standard Carrera.

you can have different programing on the same transmission.

take a look at the zf 8hp for proof of that

so are you asking if its a different programming or a different part number?

Per my original post, I am asking about the shift speed on the Turbo/Turbo S.
