V-8 sound with V-8 power from V-6 diesel.
The Porsche Macan is capable of some pretty impressive performance, especially in Turbo form. However, the oil-burning Macan S Diesel is no slouch either, especially when the team at Kaege gets their hands on it and works their magic.
The 3.0-liter, turbodiesel V-6 might not jump out of the brochure with its 254 horsepower and 428 lb-ft. of torque, but Kaege changes that pretty quickly. An external plug-and-play module pumps up the power to 310 horsepower and 516 lb-ft. of torque for the compact crossover. To go along with the added boost, an active sound system with acoustic RPM increase device creates a mean and meaty V-8 sound that can be adjusted through the cruise control level on the steering wheel column.
Kaege can also make the Porsche Macan more nimble on its feet with their wide range of suspension upgrades. The factory air suspension can benefit from a KW DLC electronic lowering module with App control with on-board adapter jack. Models equipped with the classic steel springs and electric shock absorbers can be outfitted with KW coilovers for a lower ride height or Kaege coilovers. For customers that want even more comfort, there’s even the KW street comfort chassis. Currently, KW-DDC coilovers for models with the factory electronic shock absorber setup are still being developed.
But that’s only part of the package when it comes to the chassis. The team at Kaege gave the Porsche Macan S Diesel a new set of BBS CH-R shoes in a 9.0 x 21 front and 10.5 x 21 rear setup. New Michelin Pilot sport tires grip the road in a 265/40 R21 front and 295/35 R21 rear size. As an option, the shock absorbers can be painted in the body color and the brake calipers can be painted red.
All of the new power and performance enhancements for the Porsche Macan S Diesel and other Macan variants are currently available from Kaege.
