Default cobb 20g map and tgv delete

I have deleted my tgvs and wondering if I can turn them off with my AP if so then how?

Also I got my car back from subaru and think they reset my ecu so I need to know if cobb has a map for 20g turbo or if anyone can make me one?

If you have a version 2 AccessPORT (i.e. the current version with color screen), then you can request a free copy of AccessTUNER Race to disable the DTCs in the map (see the following link). Keep in mind that it may only be legal to do so in racing applications:

There is a tutorial here for disabling DTCs:

What map was reflashed to the ECU before you took it to the dealer?

The car had a tune on it when I had bought it and I sent it to subaru for a new motor and they said the reset my ecu to the stock and so pretty sure that ment my tune is gone and so I can barely push boost cuz its is a 20g far from the stock turbo..

We do not have a map for that turbo, although I would verify that you do not have other mods (such as injectors). If the tune were, in fact, overwritten to stock by the dealership and you also had aftermarket injectors, the car would now be running poorly. Keep in mind that the AccessPORT version 2 (i.e. the gray one with the color screen) prevents the dealership from overwriting it. So, the only way that could happen would be with the version 1 AccessPORT (black brick-shaped device).

It is possible to get a custom tune with the AccessPORT. That could mean a custom dyno tune through a local shop that tunes with the AccessPORT or an "e-tune", where a tuner tunes your car remotely via email. But, the key thing here is whether or not you have a version 1 or 2 AccessPORT to determine if the ECU was actually overwritten with a stock tune (then the AccessPORT would no longer recognize that it was married to the car).

I have the cobb v2 yes, I just got one and like I said before the tune was not on one of these. I am to believe they are stock injectors but will have to look when I get the car back from subaru for an oil leak.

So if there is no tune on the car the car will still run poorly for having the 20g turbo on it?

When you install the v2 AccessPORT, it will back-up whatever tune you had on there and overwrite it with whatever map you select. You cannot use the backed-up tune, but when you uninstall it, it will put that image back on the ECU. When the v2 AccessPORT is installed, the dealership cannot overwrite it.

I would suggest finding a local shop that tunes with the AccessPORT and have them do a once-over on the car to see what mods it has and also consider getting a custom tune. Running a stock map with an aftermarket turbo is not going to be optimal at all - you really need a custom tune in this case. That will also uncover any issues that might be present due to the new motor install.

Here is a list of protuners who tune with the AccessPORT:

There is a "rev warning" that flashes the screen when you exceed the RPM set by that threshold. This can be found under the "Monitor" menu ("Set Rev Warning").
