Hello everyone, my first post. I have little project with my Porsche Cayenne that has Porsche rebranded VR6 3.2 24V and would appreciate some help and ideas. My plan is to turbo it. It's 250hp stock and i'm simply going to stick eBay turbo on it and keep it stock as possible. Stock intake, exhaust, injectors, MAF, fuel pump etc. I did some simple calculations and stock components (like injectors) should be good for around 80-90 additional horses and 6-8psi. ECU is ME7.1.1 022906032T btw. Anyway, since i'm going to start with stock ECU (don't judge me just yet, i have my reasons) first issue comes with exhaust manifold and downpipe that only can support one "bank" and the fact that there are separate o2 sensors for bank 1 and bank 2. So, total of 4 o2 sensors and two of them are wideband. ECU adjusts fuel trims for both banks. So my actual question is, how can i overcome this problem that i can only measure one bank, instead of two. (With bi-turbo there wouldn't be such issue ... I have few solutions in mind : - I stick both upper o2 sensors to exhaust manifold before turbo. Exhaust gasses are somewhat mixed in manifold, but if positioned correctly, bank1 and bank2 should still respond differently somewhat.. or maybe not? They would be before turbo in this case. - I stick bank1 upper o2 sensor right after turbo, and split electrical signal coming from it to both upper o2 sensor pins on ECU. ECU would see identical lamba value for both banks. - Some other electronic trickery? - Ecu reprogramming? I would need some help with this, i don't know how to make it use single o2 sensor only. Plenty of information how to remap it and such, but i can't find any information about this. My downpipe will have catalytic converter, so lower o2 sensors really won't be a huge problem, i thinks i can simply fit them both there without any signal splitting or other tweaks. * by upper, i mean o2 sensor that is located before cat, by lower, i mean o2 sensor that is located after cat. In my case, upper o2 sensors are wideband, lower are narrowband. .. why would i wan't to turbo my slow Cayenne SUV? I have two of them and this second one is something i wan't to turn into a monster and fitting it with lowboost turbo is just one part of it. Poor Porsche is already old and abused, i'm not messing up with any piece of art car. Thanks.
