Default Difference between Stage1 map and ACN map?

So I just got my AP today, and I am trying to decide what stage 1 map to flash onto the car. I live in Carson City, NV and saw the ACN map, would this preform better then the regular stage 1 map?

Also the car currently has a Greddy catback exhaust and K&N drop in filter, should I just wait until I get my up and downpipes on the car and flash to stage 2?

For stage 1 map, just try it out. It doesnt hurt.
you might not hit target boost, and may need to adjust the wastegate arm. Or
you can use Access tuner race to tweak the wgdc or wgdc temp compensate table to hit target.

oh yeah, the difference is the gas quality. Some places have better 91 octane than others thats why they have that.

Arizona, California & Nevada, hints the ACN. OP, you could try the regular 91 map and check the DAM and see if he car is happy with the tune.

So I ran some logging and I think I might be running too lean, AFR at WOT is 11.04...

Boost and everything else looks ok... yet the DAM is looking high? Both stock and stage1 maps were seeing 16 DAM? Still super new to tuning, thanks for your help.

Im trying to post my logs for the 91octACN map and stock maps here but I am having trouble with that as well...

Its the other way around. 11 at wot is on the rich side.

Dam at 16 is ideal.

For logs, google has a excel reader that you can use to post logs.

ACN = Arizon, Cali, Nevada gas. They have watered-down squirrel piss for gasoline.

Have been using the ACN map for the last 2 weeks with no problems now.

I was wondering if someone could come in and tell me some of the exact differences are in the tunes between stage 1 maps. Less boost, or what?

The differences are slightly less boost and less aggressive timing maps. The differences are subtle but important.
