Default Cobb accessport question

Hey guys I just ordered an accessport and I'm aware that Cobb has stage 2 maps but my car is a little more than stage 2. Any where to download custom maps or just recommend taking it to a tuner? Thanks if anybody can guide me

If you're past stage 2 I hope you have a tune on your car already. And no there's nothing custom for maps on the AP, they come with OTS(off the shelf) maps and are made for really only stock cars to be flashed to stage one or a turbo back and flash to stage 2. If you're "past" that, than I would highly recommend taking your car to get a pro tune. Hope this helps.

Pro tune or E-tune are your only options past stage 2.

Pro tune if your ballin. Jk jk but really too piggy back you should have a tune all ready if you have more then a stage 2. Ie bigger turbo bigger injectors ext. And I pray your not running anything I said without a tune.

Yea man, you should probably just fork out some cash and get it tuned professionally, even the Cobb maps aren't the greatest because every car takes mods differently. The maps are basic maps to get you by for the time being until you get a protune. So one guy might get 269whp off of a Cobb (OTS) map and another guy might get 280whp off the same map with same mods. The best way to take full advantage of your mods is to get a protune as everyone else has recommended.

So how are you currently tuned? What do you expect to gain with the AP?

You didn't exactly research before you buy did you?

With the mods you listed, you will need someone to do a protune on the vehicle and load it to the AP. AKA you wasted money if you were already tuned.

No, the AP provides an easy User Interface to switch maps along with a few other perks (logs, CEL reading, etc.)

But where you have and need a pro-tune for the mods on your car... probably not really worth it unless you want the code reading stuff.

Glad to hear you did your research first before buying. Well done!

All of which can be done with open source as well, which he's already running. The fact is he just spent $600, and still needs to spend another ~$400, to end up in the exact same place he's already in.

Never said Open Source didn't. Just making sure he understood what he was getting.

I got the ap for 300 I mean the car was already open source tuned what's the difference between that and pro tuned? I got a guy that could probably run me a tune for a good price. But wouldn't stage 2 map help? Or make a difference ?

Wtf, have you read any of the replies here? Cobb OTS Stage 2 tune is a DOWNGRADE from your open source tune. Your vehicle is already tuned for all your parts, why in the hell do you want to remove that and put on a generic tune that will damage your vehicle with its current parts?!

I don't think you fully comprehend what the AP does or how your car is tuned. I would do a ton if research before you severely damage your vehicle.

Answers this question. You definitely have more than what the Cobb OTS Stage 2 map allows for. so the OTS maps aren't going to do anything for you.

Did you read up on the AP before buying? I mean really, these are all fairly simple things that you could have saved $300 on.

I mean the car isn't running 100% since I first got it I'm the third owner. I feel like it needs a re tune

OP - read this:
http://forums.nasioc.com/forums/show....php?t=2339845

You need a custom tune. Whether that custom tune is done through opensource or AP makes absolutely no difference. What you SHOULD have done, is find a tuner you respect and trust, and see whether or not they tune OS vs AP. If they only do AP, THEN you buy one, not before.

Clarification? Do you know the mods 100%? Are you sure it's tuned at all? What makes you think it's not running right?

I have a feeling you should be saving money right now instead of wasting it on an AP.
