Please feel free to visit all our pages. 

The About Us page offers information on our background and has links to many of our favorite Porsche Groups and Organizations.

In another page: Service & Maintenance we describe our Service/Maintenance Programs and Special Requests.

In the products page you will find some great products for your Porsche:

Our number 1 selling product, the technoFix DOF fixes the IMS bearing lubrication issue on all M96/M97 Porsche engines.  We offer two versions of our kit, depending on the type of IMS bearing your car has.

We also offer the most affordable replacement IMS bearings on the market in single and double-row versions.

The techNOWind  is for the new 718/981 Boxster and Boxster S.  The Porsche-supplied windstop mesh between the roll bars is very rearview restrictive, so we came up with a perfectly CLEAR alternative.

The technoLines  are DOT approved, steel-braided, teflon brake lines of the best quality.  We also offer a clutch bleed kit which makes bleeding the clutch slave cylinder a cinch.

We have included several new products as well:

The technoTooth which adds Bluetooth capability to any Porsche with a functioning radio, technoShift OBD-II an LED sequential shift light which is plug-n-play, technoPulley an underdrive crank pulley which gives back 5 HP, and the technoSump for track use adds 2 quarts of oil and drastically reduces oil starvation.

The recently introduced technoChip: ECU (DME) Remapping which gets you more horsepower and Torque.  We now offer the MyGenius Tool from FVD Brombacher that allows you to upload the improved DME maps right through the OBD-II connector in your car.

We’ve packaged the above to form the technoPower Kit  which combines the technoTorque, the technoBore, the technoGas and the technoChip  in one complete kit, giving you up to 23 HP extra for the early 2.5 liter 986 (1997 - 1999).

The technoGas. is a complimentary part for the technoPower  Kits and it is a higher psi fuel pressure regulator.  If you purchased a technoPower  kit in the past, you should add this part which will refine the kit and provides a few more HP.

technoPower2  kits for the newer 986 models (2000-2004) Boxsters Base and S models are available and will give you up to an additional 30 HP.

In addition, we offer many other performance products and items such as the technoTorque and technoTorque3 which increase the complete torque curve of your Boxster/996, at a very affordable cost, and the technoBrace (one of the best bang-for-your-buck mods available).

The technoLite HID is a complete conversion kit to High Intensity Discharge Xenon Headlights, equivalent to Litronics for a fraction of the cost.

The technoLite LED DRL is a complete kit to add bright, LED, Daytime Running Lights  to your Boxster, Cayman or Carrera.

The technoLite LED PARKING LIGHT. An upgraded LED Parking Light Bulb  to complete the “white light” look after you upgrade to the technoLite LED DRL.

The technoVolt. A highly accurate, digital monitoring gauge with warning lights for your car’s electrical system (battery and alternator) for the Boxster/Cayman platform.
