Umm, those mods don't require an Accessport. COBBtuning.com has all your answers.

The CBE doesn't require a tune, and you shouldn't run a cold air intake on the OTS maps. But, I guess if you had to choose one it would be stage 1 91.

Really? I was told ANY air intake requires some sort of tune. same for the CBE. I thought the same thing becasue of the fact that injen claims it requires no tune. Thanks though!

Nope, you would need a tune if you had a downpipe. You will still gain power with the stage 1 map but you won't get any extra performance from the intake untill you have a custom tune, and I wouldn't waste money on one untill you get a downpipe.

Ok great! So it is safe to install the stage 1 map with just the intake and cbe? Should i install the stage 1 map with 91 or 93 octane? How about launch control? Yes, i do plan on a downpipe here pretty soon and i do plan on getting a pro tune with that also.

If you only have 92 octane available, stick with the 91 octane tune. Better safe than risk detonation.

I'd say just stick with the stock airbox and use the 91 stage 1 map. I believe the map was tuned for use with the stock airbox so using the intake will just hurt performance.

Get rid of the Injen intake. If you want an intake, choose one that was designed properly.

Any, no. But the Injen intake is a total piece of junk and requires custom tuning to use.

Piping diameter is too small.
