Default Get Cobb's access ecu

It does the same job and is cheaper. The UTEC also modifies signals to and from the computer(basicly this comes down to it is working against the computer) The accessecu is a reflash, so it's the same smart ecu in control of everything. For $100 extra bucks it's user programable to.

When I ask a question like this, people always suggest the following.



In my opinion, I like the UTEC, because it does not splice into your factory harness, and its removable if you need warranty work done to your car.

Plus, I don't have 2 cars, so I can't send my ECU to CA to get a reflash from cobb.

I'm still bone stock however.

The UTEC of course. This is completely unbiased.

Just to clarify some misinformation: There is no fighting over control while running the UTEC as it actually drives your car and at no point ever does the factory ecu drive the car while using a UTEC.

If you plan on mixing and matching parts or will continue to modify your vehicle, the UTEC is the way to go. If you have very basic plans a reflash would be good but we are not selling our reflashed ecu's yet.

Thanks,
Phil

I say the UTEC because it lets you keep upgrading and look at al the features you get.

"Just to clarify some misinformation: There is no fighting over control while running the UTEC as it actually drives your car and at no point ever does the factory ecu drive the car while using a UTEC."


Sorry if I was misleading. What I was trying to say was that the Factory ecu isn't in complete control. From what I understand the factory is exceptionally smart and makes changes day to day in the respects to any changes it sees. Some of the obvious would be fuel and weather. I was under the assumption that if the UTEC is in control, the Exceptionally smart brain that came with the car no longer has this ability. I've heard people say that under the UTEC's control, their car has actually run poorly with something as simple as a 10 degree weather change. They said they constantly had to switch between maps for reasons like this. I'm no expert, but again I've heard the factory ecu easily handles things like this. Why give that up for engine managment? Does the UTEC do this? The accessecu costs alot less, you keep the factory ecu and for $100 you can get this little handheld scanner that you can modify the map yourself for when you upgrade mods. I know you at TurboXS are in the market to sell these things, sorry if it appears as if I am bashing the UTEC. Just that I've had a UTEC in the past. In my opinion the accessecu is alot smoother and runs alot better. Why would one not want the factory ecu to be in control. All you simply have to do is modify the ecu to accept the mods done to your car, not give up the control to another piece of equipment. No expert just stating opinion. How does the UTEC control the parameters in the same way the factory ecu would?
