you could re-map the vehicle's current ECU... or if you want to buy a newone... but you can do your job by remapping the current ECU... is it a 2.5L?

The ECU can be remapped through the OBD port with GIAC software. It is not something you are going to be able to do yourself. I think our flashes run about $895 for the boxster. Good for 8-10hp.

Theres nothing you can do that is very cheap to add horsepower. Exhaust and chipping don't add that much and are not that cheap. We supercharged one. Added about 100hp.
