Additional Information

CarBahn Performance Controller (CPC):

The CPC is a plug and play ECU that increases boost pressure in turbocharged cars to dramatically increase HP and Torque. The unit has selectable maps through a Bluetooth app on your smart phone.

You can download these apps for your smartphone through the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store.


These maps are designed to accommodate different octane fuels for additional increased performance. You can choose between 91, 93 and 100 Octane.

As with all CarBahn products an optional powertrain warranty can be purchased.

If you want to trade your CarBahn Performance Controller in for software in the future, there is a $250 upgrade fee and if you purchased the warranty, it is transferable to the software at no additional charge! 


Heat Exchanger

CarBahn heat exchanger very efficient additional heat exchangers are tied into the intercooler heat exchanger circuit to extract more heat from the intercoolers. They are designed to compensate for additional heat generated by increased boost. The reduced in temperature is a must to extract maximum power and ensure reliability of the engine with High boost applications. In addition, they are very light weight compared to other units on the market. This is important to maintain proper weight distribution since they are mounted on the nose of the car.


Emissions legality:

A note on down pipes (removing the catalyst). We have run back-to-back dyno runs with the cat on and off and the power gain is much smaller than most people claim usually around 11hp. We all need to breathe the air. It is difficult to get your car its required emissions test without catalyst and it is illegal.

  1. Jeremy Ledbetter

    The people at CarBahn are amazing to work with and the difference the controller made is dramatic and I love smoking all the hellcats. Make sure the installer if you aren’t local actually knows what they are doing though. Only negative thing was dealing with the local shop trying to charge me $12k total for the kit they sell for $5,500. I do recommend CarBahn if you want the baddest, reliable (had it for almost a year) M8 on the road.
