Hey I was wondering if these were the same? I understand that Cobb has them seperate on there site as 04 or 05 instead of grouping them as 04-05 Accessports. Would I be able to buy an 05 and delete the current maps that are on there and download the 04 maps on there and run it for my 04? Thanks! I haven't tried searching but if this question has already been reviewed I do apologize.

I had those same reservations when I was shopping the used AP market. I -recall- reading a blurb somewhere that they are different and you want to get the year-appropriate one for your car. It may be due to the whole 'immobilizer' ignition stuff, or something completely unrelated to that, but I just figured "can't go wrong w/the correct year version".

It sucks b/c you don't see as many use AP's for '05's out there, but keep looking

You could place a call to Cobb to ask them though?.. it may actually be a simple re-flash of AP firmware?
