Default Quick accessport question!

If your stock you can still go to stage 1 correct? What if your all stock except an axle back do you need a more specific tune? Or can i run the same one as before?

You're safe to run Stage 1 with an axle back. I would recommend going to Stage 2 or a protune once you get a downpipe and a full turbo back exhaust, downpipe being the substantial mod here.

Yes. No, a axle back will not interfere with stage one. It's once you get a aftermarket down pipe that you need a stage 2 tune.

Well the reason i dont want to go stage 2 yet is because a downpipe would void my warranty which is why i went with an axle back :/

Once you modify your vehicle you're basically already voiding your warranty. It just depends on the dealer whether they choose to or not dependent on your modifications.

no such thing as voiding the warranty. They can deny claims based on the mods. stage 1 is still modding the product they sold you and they will be able to deny claims.

You have not download and fully read the manual and the map notes for each tune level that Cobb offers. What this tells me is that you will soon likely be motor shopping. Research into engine management is 100% CRITICAL and if you don't do your homework, buy nothing and keep it stock. If you continue down this question/answer, question/answer, question/answer path, you will soon have four holes in your fenders where the pistons have left the motor. Not even kidding.

Anything from the cat back will not void your warranty

Catback shouldn't affect any warranty claim, however a claim could easily be denied for flashing a stage 1 tune. Consider things carefully prior to changing the tune.

Yea a tune would void it but cant an accessport be removed so it wont be detected when you do decide to take it in for service?

Just telling you the truth of it. If you want to be sure that any warranty claims are honored then stick with just the axle or catback. Your call. This subject has been beat to death.

100% wrong. Had you read your warranty manual or the sticky in the warranty forum, you might be close to correct.
