Default Anyone w/a Cobb Map for 50/50?

I was wondering if anyone has a methanol/water kit installed and has had Cobb Tuning make a map for them? I have no local shops that can tune my vehicle...or no one that I would really trust.

Imo you should find someone to tune your car, tune it yourself, and/or get rid of the mods if that's what you need. What are your mods? There are respected tuning shops that send people maps for their mods, but that's basically the same thing as a basemap and can be a lot less safe for your engine.

Too bad about having no shops near you.

First, bear in mind that your AP map is year specific - maps from different model years are incompatible, and your AP will tell you so.

Second, each injection system is different (Coolingmist, SMC, etc). Also, they have specific nozzles and specific time boost comes on and off. So you'd have to match the syetm, nozzle, and specs as well.

Third, you'd have to match supporting mods: intakes, exhausts, etc.

Fourth, even with all that, it is still dangerous. When I was going to get tuned by Doug at Topspeed for injection, my clutch was slipping, so he could not tune my car. I asked if I could have the same map as someone else who was tuned yesterday with my exact same mods (except different brand of exhaust). He said he could give me their map without injection, but no way he could do it for the injection. He said even though our mods were identical, there were are too many variables in how injection runs on a car.

you could make a run to Dallas. Kingpin can road tune you pretty well, and they'll have a dyno soon.

I dont know what kit you have, but agile auto (I believe they are a vendor here) has done our kit with a cobb tune many times. I dont know what they can do for you, but I thought I'd throw that out. Good luck with what ever kit you have.
