Default accessport question

This may be a silly question or whatever but I was wondering if I lived in CA could i use the regular 91 octane map or should i use the one meant for az/ca/nv map on the accessport? What's the difference?

Next time, post in the right forum.
READ the documentation. READ it. If it says there is a California map and you live in California.....ummmm....using deductive reasoning....you should probably use the California map.

If you want to know the difference, call Cobb as no one here knows.

Ron, thank you for your help...

The ACN maps were created for the fuels available in the Southwest United States as denoted by the ACN (Arizona, California, Nevada). This is because the 91 octane available in these states is particuarly low-quality from a tuning standpoint. We make these maps more conservative than our "regular" 91 octane maps because of this.

Basically, these are slightly detuned from the regular 91 octane maps is the short answer.
