How to Acquire 1989 ROW ClubSport DME Chip?

I recently had my US/CA 1987 3.2 engine rebuilt with 10.3:1 Mahle P&C and Jerry Woods valve springs. The car is now fitted with a DEC cat and Dansk 1-in-1-out muffler. In theory, the engine should behave like a Row ClubSport engine and I like to give the most aggressive DME chip configuration for 3.2 a try. I read the '89 ClubSport version is probably the most aggressive. How do I go about acquiring the chip? (Motronic DME installed: Porsche 911.618.111.20. Bosch 0 261 200 082.)

Take a road trip to SoCal and have Steve tuned it on the dyno for you. I did it in 2015 and was super pleased with the results...

Agree 100%. Here on the east coast John Behe cutom tunes on the dyno, it's the only way to go for a perfectly programmed chip..

I have an open airbox, Web 20/21 cams, pre-muffler and sport muffler. I'm glad I went with a custom tune. Car even sounds better / different post-tune...

BTW - The only difference between the final 28 pin factory chip (#1267355358) and the Clubsport chip (#1267355330) is the redline. (They raised it from 6540 a touch over 6800.)
If you search on it Steve Wong did a nice article about it.

I wouldn't raise the redline past the Clubsport limit (and I kinda question that too) unless you replace the rod bolts with ARP or Raceware.
