McLAREN 650 TUNING

The 650S shares the MP4-12C's Carbon-fibre-reinforced polymer chassis, and is powered by the same McLaren M838T 3.8-litre V8, twin-turbo engine, but now developing 641 bhp (478 kW; 650 PS) and 500 lb⋅ft (680 N⋅m) of torque.[5] Power is transmitted to the wheels through a seven-speed near instantaneous shift dual-clutch gearbox.

At GCAP we have designed a package to further refine the British supercar's character with a few simple modifications.

Exhaust

We use an Akrapovič exhaust system on our tuning packages for this vehicle.

 

The performance exhaust for the McLaren 650S is a high-tech system crafted from a special durable and heat-resistant titanium alloy with bigger tubes and unique solutions to improve torque and power at all rpms, especially in the most-used middle range. Our uncompromising approach uses the best materials and design. Light systems save weight and lower the center of gravity, leading to better handling as well. A special coating guarantees a state-of-the-art look. The 650S with the Akrapovič Slip-On exhaust system sounds deeper in the low rpms and serves up a delicious racing sound as the revs get higher. Slip-On systems contain special sound solutions to tune the sound frequencies: every element of the system was designed for maximum sound output, and offers everything needed for pleasant cabin comfort and to make the V8 sing out for true car enthusiasts at all rpms in all gears. On top of all this, the carbon fibre tailpipes create the striking visual impression that this is no ordinary McLaren.

Software

We have developed our own software to increase the cars performance. This comes in two forms. A stage 1 map (I.E. a software only calibration with no hardware changes) and a stage 2 (with our Akrapovič exhaust system).

When tuning we measure afr, ignition timing, intake temps, EGTs etc. to ensure our tune is as safe and reliable as possible whilst drawing the most out of your supercar.

 

We have seen gains up to 720bhp and 545lbft.

Brakes

As with most McLarens, the brake system is excellent. However we can offer modified braided brakes lines. Our lines have a stronger wall density delivering a more precise and accurate brake pedal feel. This translates into more confidence in your supercar.
