I would just call cobb in the morning, but searching the forum would yield you a lot more results than asking locally.

They have some of the best tech support in the industry. Just be patient, they will get back with you, or wait till they are on duty.

Cobb is great until you want something a little more finely tuned than an OTS map. They can store maps for sure but when you can daily drive with the right map, it can make all the difference.

They speak the truth. Most BMW guys that go big use two types of engine management. A primary one and COBB AP used to adjust and control the fuel. They love their tech support as well.

I used one on my 04 STi and have one sitting aside for the 05 STi. I love the AP. Good luck with your issue.

Thanks the car is already built by Cobb the issues that I'm having is trying to get it to connect to the ECU from the lap top now but I believe that's do to the map being protuned and access race tuner will not work with the protuned maps ughh so I'm debating on going open source unless Cobb can send me an unlocked version of the map. Waiting to hear back from them.

I'd be very surprised if they send you an unlocked map, most protuners lock them for a reason

Ya I'm hoping for the best so when I take it to get tuned after the new headers and Catless DP are installed not sure how hard it will be for underground element or p3 to start from scratch on the tune guess that's what you get for going with a protune thinking of switching to OS if I can't get the map unlocked

I know Underground won't have a problem starting from scratch with the tune , keep the ap though and retune from that if you have too

^^ what he said. Underground performance has done a fantastic job with my car. Meticulous, safe and detail oriented. Things to look for in a shop.

Starting from scratch is not that bad on a Subaru. We can also work off the existing map, locked or not.

BTW you can log directly to your laptop with out the AP just using the cable if that makes it a little easier. Make sure when you log you keep your logged variables to a minimum, that way you will get the best resolution. The data stream is only one variable at a time per cycle and its slow. If you log too much at the same time you can miss things or see them out of time with whats really going on. Good starting points for basic checks are Engine RPM, Calculated load, and Feed back knock correction. Look for negative numbers in your feed back knock correction logs under WOT or high engine loads.

Also keep in mind some info coming from the logs will not be accurate under certain conditions like AFR for instance on a Subaru. You must rely on an external AFR gauge during high load conditions such as WOT.
