After removing the DPF/SCR... if it matters, you'll also end up with a bit of diesel smoke, and the diesel smell from the exhaust. It does sound pretty good though, for a low-revving V6.

(This one has a tune on it) -

I do like the way that sounds. It just has a Rawtek exhaust?

His username on clubtouareg is tdimark69 , and his signature states he's got a gutted/painted muffler as well as the Rawtek downpipe. Not sure if that video was just the downpipe, or with the downpipe and the gutted muffler.

This one says it's a downpipe and the stock muffler, and from his build thread, he said: "So i have about 200kms on the exhaust and tune now...and let me start by saying OMG. This is not the same machine its so much better. It no longer falls on its face around 80-100km+ now it pulls and keeps pulling. Sound with stock muffler is super tame inside and not bad outside either.
The throttle response is much much better, more power everywhere..."

The process to load the tune is easy, you read the stock tune with a tuner box you buy from Malone called a Flashzilla. You then email the stock tune to Malone and they build the tuned file for you, which you upload into the Flashzilla. Then you use the Flashzilla to upload the tuned file to the Cayenne's ECU. The Flashzilla can also read and erase check engine lights/codes.
Process for uploading the tune took longer than I expected and while it was happening all sorts of dash warning lights come on and go off, with bells and chimes. A little disconcerting! All was well tho in the end.
Onto the drive, the motor feels like a huge weight has been lifted off its shoulders. It revs much more easily, smoothness is the same, I didn't notice any more diesel clatter than before. You need much smaller throttle openings to acheive the same speed. When you get heavy into the throttle, the truck moves, now! Hard to quantify the gains without putting it on a dyno, but the butt dyno says the gains over stock are substantial.
Definitely a well done package, Porsche should've tuned them like this from the factory.

Food for thought, gonna be hard to not pull the trigger on it...
Can you elaborate on your comment of "you need much smaller throttle openings to achieve the same speed?" I put BS on wife's few days ago. Big difference, but it still feels laggy in first gear. I'm looking for replicate throttle response in the gears as close to Carrera as possible.

If that's your goal, you're going to fail. No way will a turbo diesel have the same throttle response as the Carrera. What I meant is that it makes so much more power that you don't have to give it as much throttle to achieve the same acceleration.

Felt like there was some throttle lag in first gear at times still, putting it in sport mode basically erased that.

Thanks, but disagree. The cayenne gts has very strong and immediate throttle response. Even the v6 in upper rpm mimicks my 997 throttle behavior. Agree it won't ever be the same, but seeking the similar DNA.

Anyone in dallas have Malone?

Believe current V6 is a TT vs a single T in diesel. Not sure how an apples to apples comparison can be made with completely different engine designs. Any turbo motor in boost will have decent response. Lag happens when you are out of boost.

Previous Cayenne GTS was a NA V8, so not a fair comparison to a single turbo V6 diesel. Any turbo motor is going to have softer throttle response compared to a NA motor. Some it is due to the e-throttle and transmission programming but most of it is simply NA vs turbo.
